Local High School Sports-Wednesday, May 15

Baseball...
The Borgia Knights took a 3-1 lead into the bottom of the seventh inning against the top rated class 4 team in the state, but Westminster showed why they've won 29 games this year, rallying with three runs on four hits, including a bad hop single, to snatch victory from the jaws of defeat 4-3. Tony Helfrich had held the Wildcats to two hits before the seventh. He was saddled with the loss. Ben Lovell was the winner. Grant Eckelkamp had three hits for the Knights, who end the season with a 15-7 record. Westminster advances to the state playoffs next week with a 29-3 mark. Caleb Hicks had two hits for Westminster including the game winner.
