In their first state appearance since 2000, the Sleepy Eye Indians advanced to the Class A title game!
The squad battled a tough Heritage Christian Academy squad in the championship contest at Target Field on Saturday.
That game was originally set for a 10AM start but because of rain, it didn't get started until after 2PM.
Sleepy Eye had a tough time with Eagles senior Seth Halvorsen.
The Twins 30th round draft pick struck out 16 and hit two homeruns for HC; becoming just the 5th player in Minnesota history to hit two home runs in a state tourney game.
Halvorsen's performance helped the Eagles to their 8-0 win over Sleepy Eye.
The Indians finish the season 18-6.
