Augustana baseball makes program history

Sports

SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (KELO) – On Saturday, Augustana’s baseball team accomplished something no other Vikings team had previously, including last year’s national championship squad, as they won the Northern Sun regular season conference title after dominating Upper Iowa 27-5. For the vikings, it was a season long goal to get the one title that evaded them last year.

“It was just a fun day. Good opportunity for our program. First time ever to win a conference regular season. Like I said, long time coming, and pretty cool experience,” Huber said. 

“I mean, we had the whole checklist last year, and the regular season championship was not part of it last year. We got it this year and that’s awesome. Hopefully we can keep adding on it to again like we did last year,” Svozil said. 

Augustana opens the NSIC tournament against Winona State at noon on Wednesday in St. Cloud.
