In the first round of the baseball playoffs on June 10, Big Foot survived and advanced while Williams Bay was eliminated.
The fourth-seeded Chiefs kicked off the postseason with a thorough home victory, defeating No. 5 seed Lake Mills 6-1.
Senior Anthony Hibl started the game with a jolt, hitting a two-run home run in the bottom of the first inning to give Big Foot a 2-0 lead.
In the second inning the Chiefs scored four runs, including a bases-loaded walk by Hibl, to go ahead 6-0.
Meanwhile, Lake Mills mustered a single run in the seventh inning.
Hibl led the way offensively and dominated on the mound. He threw six scoreless innings, allowing only two hits and two walks while striking out seven.
Big Foot’s win sent them to a second-round road matchup against Rock Valley Conference rival and top-seeded Jefferson on June 14. The Eagles defeated the Chiefs 16-4 and 10-0 in the regular season.
The Bulldogs’ season ended on the road, losing to Whitefish Bay Dominican High School 12-0.
