For the first time since 2009, the Newman baseball team is bringing some first-place hardware back to Mason City. The Knights defeated Van Buren 6-2 in the Class 1A state finals.
Sophomore Kaden Wadle got the job done on the mound: pitching six innings, striking out three batters and improving his season record to 8-0.
Junior Pete Lapointe led the offensive charge for the Knights, knocking in 4 RBI.
This is the fourth state title in school history for Newman.
