The South Milwaukee baseball team did a terrific job in honoring its past last week … but its present, and future, is pretty bright too.
The Rockets have clinched a Woodland East Conference championship for the second straight season, and third time in four years.
The team is 14-5 overall and 11-1 in league play, with a game at Greendale tonight and at Sussex-Hamilton on Wednesday. Then it’s off to the postseason, with South Milwaukee hosting a regional final on May 30. Sectionals are June 4, also at the newly renamed John Galewski Field.
From coach Ben Parlier …
We were led by Xavier Watson, Dom Rizzotto and Austin Preiss. Xavier has been our shortstop all year finished the year with a .509 average including 4 HR and 22 RBI. Rizzotto and Preiss have been our workhorses on the mound this year, combining for 8 wins. All three have been incredible leaders with how they carry themselves both on the field and in the classroom.
