The Algoma softball team rallied from an early deficit and sat out a lengthy delay to beat Racine Lutheran in a Division 4 sectional final in softball Thursday at Oakfield, 2-1. After collecting just one hit through the first three innings, the Wolves tied the game in the fourth. Baleigh Deloirt walked to start the inning and stole second. She came around to score on a single by Meg Ryan. The game would remain tied until the top of the seventh. Tanika Jorgenson looped a lead-off single down the leftfield line and took second on an error. She moved to third on a ground out and scored on a two out error. A thunderstorm moved in before Racine Lutheran came to the plate in the bottom half of the seventh. After a delay of more than an hour, Jorgenson retired the Crusaders in order to send Algoma back to state for a second consecutive season and their third overall trip. Jorgenson relieved starter Jordan Demmin with two outs in the fifth and retired all seven batters she faced, striking out three. Jorgenson, who picked up the win, had two of Algoma’s six hits. Algoma will play Shell Lake winner in the D4 state semifinals at Goodman Diamond in Madison on Friday, June 7th. That game will start at approximately 11 AM and will be heard on 93.9 FM WDOR and wdor.com.
