West Central Area Knights' baseball team picks up first win of the season, taking first game of an HOL double-header at Breckenridge 7-2

The West Central Area Knights' baseball team earned its first win of the season today at Breckenridge/Campbell-Tintah, defeating the Cowboys 7-2 in the first game of a Heart O' Lakes Conference double-header. They won despite having only four hits in the game.

In the nightcap, they did not fare as well, however, losing 13-0 in five innings.

Up next for the WCA Knights' baseball team: a home double-header at the WCA High School in Barrett on Thursday (May 6) beginning at 4:00pm against state-ranked Hawley.
