GRAND CHUTE, Wis. (WSAW) - Marathon baseball’s season ends at the hands of Kenosha St. Joseph in the WIAA Div. 3 State semifinals, 11-1.

The Lancers broke out in the second inning with five hits and four runs. Kenosha St. Joseph never looked back.

The Red Raiders tried to make it interesting in the fifth inning. Jaden Koeller drove in Grant Warren on an RBI groundout, but the Lancers didn’t flinch.

Kenosha St. Joseph poured in seven runs in the fifth to end the game on a mercy rule.

“Definitely the friendships that I’ve formed with all these different guys,” said Marathon senior pitcher Brock Warren. “We only have three seniors, so the fact that we made it to the state tournament is unreal. I’ll never forget what it was like to know these guys.”

“There are so many things to miss, but I’d say the other players,” said Marathon senior catcher Mike Hahn. “The family we have. In March, nobody really knew each other. Yesterday, we were all tackling each other in the pool and having a good time. Especially in baseball more than any other sport, you get that family aspect.”

Marathon wraps up its season with a 19-8 record. This is the fifth time the Red Raiders have made it to state.
