Waukon baseball team has late comeback efforts fall short in two of three losses

The Waukon baseball team played through a week outside the win column in three games against some of the more traditional powers in Iowa high school baseball at some unique sites this past week. The Indians first fell to West Delaware, 13-3 in five innings, at the Mt. Mercy University baseball field in Cedar Rapids Tuesday, June 2 before playing in the Waterloo Columbus Tournament Saturday, June 6 at Riverfront Stadium in Waterloo - home of the Waterloo Bucks, where the baseball Tribe forged a pair of late comeback efforts that just missed their mark, first falling to the host school, 7-4, in the opening round and then coming up just short against Class 1A second-rated Martensdale-St. Mary’s, 6-5, in the tournament’s consolation game.

Now holding a 6-27 season record, including a 1-17 finish to place seventh in the final Northeast Iowa Conference (NEIC) standings, the Indians were next scheduled to wrap up their regular season with a final game at Class 4A Dubuque Senior to be played at the University of Dubuque baseball field Tuesday, July 9 before beginning postseason tournament play at home Saturday, July 13 against Clayton Ridge. Further details of that postseason trail are published elsewhere in the July 10 print edition and e-edition of The Standard on the same Sports pages in a shaded box.
