Senior to be Jayden Bergman was a force not only on the mound, but at the plate as well as the Rams move into the winners bracket in the District 2 Acme district tournament.

The Tinora bats came out blazing, scoring 3 runs in the bottom of the first, never looking back in the 8-8 victory.

Rams second baseball Cole Commisso left no doubt in the outcome in the sixth inning, smashing a two run home run over the left field fence, giving the Rams a 7-0 lead. Tinora added their final run on a bases loaded fielders choice by Casen Wolfrum, scoring Eli Plassman.
