GRAND CHUTE -

Wisconsin Height shut out defending champion Oconto Falls 6-0 in the Division 3 state title game Thursday afternoon at Fox Cities Stadium.

Vangard Pitcher Carter Howard struck out five in a two hit shut out.

Wisconsin Heights scored six runs over six innings.

This is the school's second state baseball title in the school's sixth state appearance. 

"It's unreal we have worked so hard this year and for it all to pay off right here. It is great," said Howard.

"It's great. I have two kids on the team so that is huge to me and a bunch of other relatives. It's a community thing. It's not just me or the other coaches. It is the community and the players," said head coach Rod Howard.


"It's been a sweet ride with all of these guys starting off a freshman and moving up on our way up to varsity. We just took it the rest of the way senior year and won state," said Will Dohery, senior catcher.
