MADISON - It was a golden day in Madison for a pair of area softball teams. New London captured the Division 2 state softball crown, while earlier in the day Algoma claimed the Division 4 state title.
The Bulldogs defeated Baldwin-Woodville, 2-1, to claim the school's first state softball title.
Baldwin-Woodville jumped out to a 1-0 lead in the first inning on a sacrifice fly and it looked like that might be the difference in the game.
New London trailed 1-0 with one out to go in the game. It got a pair of runners on base thanks to a walk and a single. Molly O'Connell then doubled to right-center field, scoring the tying and game-winning runs.
Algoma, started the day off with a 5-4 victory over Newman Catholic in the Division 4 championship game.
The Wolves trailed 2-0 entering their half of the 5th inning and then exploded for four runs in the frame.
Baleight Delorit and Meg Ryan each came through with 2 RBI hits. Tanika Jorgenson had the other Algoma RBI, driving in a run in the 6th.
That was enough offense for the Wolves to win 5-4 and capture their first state softball title.
