BLANCHARDVILLE - The No. 1-ranked baseball team in Division 4 has fallen for just the second time this year. Pecatonica (21-2) lost to No. 5-ranked Barneveld (19-3) for the second time this season. Unfortunately, this time the 8-6 WIAA Division 4 regional final loss ends the Vikings' season."We had a great season. It was up and above anything I expected," Pecatonica coach Jim Strommen said. "I told our kids that we gave our best today, we just didn't play our best today."
