The Sturgeon Bay Clippers will go for a second straight state title when they host Gibraltar/Sevastopol in WIAA Alternative Fall State Tournament play Thursday.
The Clippers enter the matchup 6-3 with all three losses coming against team battling for position in the Division 1 Tournament. One of those wins came against the Vikineers in a 4-1 decision in Institute. That was also the last time the Vikineers hit the pitch in its limited season. It lost to Manitowoc Lincoln 4-1 on April 17th after beating Bowler/Gresham 3-1 earlier this week. The Clippers won the state tournament in 2019 while the Vikineers lost to Kohler 7-0 in its WIAA Regional opener that year just two weeks after handing Sturgeon Bay its first conference loss in almost 30 games.
