Broncos baseball team is headed to state

It has been 67 years since Union Grove High School has sent its baseball team to the state tournament.

That long drought ended Tuesday when the Broncos defeated Greendale and Whitefish Bay in WIAA Division 2 sectional play to earn a berth in next week’s state tournament in Appleton.

Coverage of the Broncos’ triumph leads this week’s edition of the Westine Report.

Readers can pick up a copy of the edition featuring full game coverage and multiple photos at Union Grove area retail outlets on Friday. Subscribers will receive their copies with Friday’s mail.
