To the Editor:
For the third consecutive season, your Fairmont Cardinal baseball team has advanced to the state tournament by defeating the New Ulm Eagles in the section championship.
Recent success of Cardinal athletics is certainly something that makes a community and school proud, and has not gone unnoticed in southern Minnesota. This accomplishment by the baseball team of qualifying for three consecutive state tournaments is something the coaches and players of Cardinal baseball should be commended for, as its quite a feat.
Coaches Jerry Brooks and Todd Sukalski have turned the Cardinal baseball program into a powerhouse not only in the area, but also in the state. Losing is never easy, especially our fifth consecutive section championship in a row, and third to our conference and section rival. However, on behalf of the New Ulm High School baseball program, we wish the Cardinals luck in the upcoming Class AA state baseball tournament.
