High School Sports News:

The WIAA Board of Control voted last Friday to discontinue the State Summer Baseball Tournament following the 2018 season. The WIAA says that because of a steady decline in the number of schools playing summer baseball, the board voted to end the program. 50 schools are sponsoring summer baseball in 2018, with that number projected to drop to 30 by 2019-2020. At its peak in 1990, 110 schools in the state offered summer baseball. The WIAA has hosted a state tournament for summer baseball since 1965.
