ALMONT — The Almont varsity baseball team, which entered tournament play as owners of a 4-12 mark, registered an unexpected first-place finish last Saturday at a Division 3 district hosted by Brown City High School.
With the result, Almont (6-12) advances to this Saturday's regionals at Birch Run High School. There a semifinal assignment versus the Perry awaits them.
Almont began their title-producing run with a 2-1 semifinal win against Memphis.
Tyler Wiggins and Pat Russell led Almont with a hit apiece. Jordan Stanek and Chris May added one RBI each to the Raiders' cause.
