Central's stay at state shortened by Marathon
St. Croix Central's trip to the 2008 WIAA State Baseball Championships was kept brief by Marathon last Wednesday.
Central and Marathon squared off in the first of the two Division 3 state semifinal games. Central had many baserunners, especially early in the game, that it couldn't capitalize on. Marathon had chances that it did put to use, scoring six runs in the fifth and sixth innings, to beat Central 7-2.
