Panthers look to repeat as sectional champs
The Ellsworth HIgh School baseball team has won three straight regional championships.

The other semifinal pits Hayward vs Somerset which starts at 11 a.m.
The championship game is set for 4 p.m.
The statd tournament is next Tuesday-Wednesday-Thursday at Fox Cities Stadium in Appleton.
