Legendary Hermantown High baseball head coach Billy Tafs on his team advancing to the Section 7AAA winner's bracket championship on Wednesday afternoon, thanks to an impressive 6-1 home win against Grand Rapids on Saturday: "It's been a fun few weeks around Fichtner Field that’s for sure. Yesterday against Rapids might have been the most complete games we have played all year. Cruz Runyan was fantastic: 1 walk, 5 hits through 7 was impressive. Very rarely was he even behind in the count.
In general it was seniors doing what seniors need to do. Wylee Arro, Garron Opsahl and Carter Gunderson continue to stay hot at the plate but the story has been our defense. All positions have been solid, but our short stop had a gold glove-caliber game against Grand Rapids.
We are familiar with all three teams we might face Wednesday so not sure I have a strong desire one way or the other. All I know is we have all of our arms ready to go Wednesday, we need to have a couple good practices Monday and Tuesday to keep this train rolling into Wednesday."
