Saints end season with 20-4 record and perfect record in Camden Conference
 

The KMS baseball team ran into a very strong pitcher during the Section 3A Baseball Tournament and the results were two losses to Wabasso, including a 5-0 loss to the Jackrabbits in the section title game, Thursday at Milroy.

KMS went 4-2 overall during the tournament to place second.  The Saints fell to Wabasso in the upper bracket finals a week earlier by the same 5-0 score, but KMS stayed alive with a thrilling 5-4 win over Lac qui Parle last Tuesday night at Granite Falls.

That put the Saints in the title game against Wabasso, Thursday, but Nick Altermatt struck out 10 KMS batters on the way to the 5-0 complete-game, three-hit masterpiece.  One week earlier, Altermatt also struck out 10 KMS batters over 6 2/3 innings, giving up five hits.

The loss ended the Saints’ season with an impressive 20-4 overall record, which also includes an 11-0 run through the Camden Conference for the league title.  Besides the two losses to Wabasso, KMS also lost to Willmar and Heritage Christian this season....
