They weren’t expected to go far in the Section 4AA baseball tournament as the number eight seed but the Holy Angels Stars are still alive, four wins away from a state tournament berth.
Following their win on May 24 against St. Paul Central, the Stars were back in action on May 27 to take on the top seeded and top ranked team in Class AA, the St. Anthony Village Huskies. Holy Angels got sent to the losers bracket with a 2-1 loss to St. Anthony Village.
However, the Stars were shining on May 28th as they headed to the Capitol City to face the St. Paul Academy Spartans and trounced host SPA 14-1. Next up was the second seeded DeLaSalle Islanders, the ninth ranked Class AA team Saturday afternoon at the Northeast Athletic Field in Minneapolis. The Islanders, coming off a loss to third seeded Blake on the 29th, were eliminated by the Stars before storms pelted the Twin Cities area 9-4.
Holy Angels will face the Minnehaha Academy Redhawks on Monday, June 2 in a 4 PM game at Fort Snelling. If the Stars win, they will play the losing team of the St. Anthony Village-Blake game on June 3 at 4:30 PM. A loss to the Redhawks, and the Stars season comes to an end.
Can Holy Angels be the surprise team of Section 4AA? First they have to beat Minnehaha Academy on June 2.
