Liz Prins had experienced a state championship before, when Edgerton/Southwest Minnesota Christian won the Class 1A title in her freshman year.
But there’s something special about going out on top.
Prins and her Flying Dutchmen teammates scored a run in the fourth inning and three more in the fifth en route to a 4-1 victory over Badger/Greenbush-Middle River in the Class 1A championship game.
Prins, a senior second baseman and captain, said this time around, the title meant a little bit more. “There’s nothing better than going out with a championship,” she said. “It feels so great.”
