A two-run first inning double by Devin Meyer was all Rockets’ pitcher Maddux Kovash would need as he went all five innings striking out nine on his way to the shutout victory. Meyer also picked up a walk-off game winning RBI single in the semifinal as Richville defeated Wadena 4-3.

For the tournament, the Rockets were paced by Noah Rooney who batted .600. Kovash and Meyer HIT .444 and Carter Mulcahy put up a .400 average.

Kovash picked up two pitching victories on the mound while Rooney and Mulcahy added one each. For the season, the Rockets were 18-2 losing two games in the Battle of Omaha but going unbeaten in league play.

For the season, Kovash batted .620, Rooney .528 and Mulcahy .500.
