Russell Legion Baseball PatchThe Russell Senior American Legion baseball team opened the postseason in impressive fashion by rolling to a 12-0 run-ruled victory in four innings over Norton in the semifinals of the Norton "AA" Zone Tournament on Monday, July 17.

Chase Prester tossed a compete-game, two hitter and struck out six.

Prester also had three hits and two RBI. Tanner Rome collected two hits, both doubles, and 3 RBI. Austin Dale had two hits and drove in one run.

Russell, the top-seed in the zone, improves to 21-7 and advances to Thursday's winner's bracket championship game at 6pm. Russell will play Concordia, who beat Beloit 13-5 on Tuesday in Beloit. Beloit led 1-0 in the fifth inning on Monday when a thunderstorm caused the game to be suspended.

The "AA" State Tournament will be held in Marysville July 26-30.
