First, the Timberwolves failed to garner one of the five seeds despite posting a 21-2 record. Then, they drew undefeated and second-seeded New York Mills in the quarterfinals.

Nonetheless, Ely is back in the state tournament and opens against the Eagles (23-0) at 5:30 p.m. Thursday in Chaska, Minn. If the Timberwolves are victorious, they will meet either Chatfield or Royalton in the semifinals. The state championship game is noon June 14 at Target Field.

  •  An oddity presented itself on the Class AAA bracket with the appearance of a 7-18 team.

Lakeville South was 1-17 heading into its regular-season finale against Burnsville, which it won. The Cougars then went 5-1 in the Section 1AAA tournament to qualify for state.

Five locals make North all-star team

Five players from the Northland will compete on the North team in the Minnesota High School Baseball All-Star Series later this month. They are Jake Turner and Chris Olson of Duluth East; Louie Gerzin of Ely; Evan Scherber of Proctor; and Jackson Gessell of Grand Rapids.

Coaching the North team are Duluth East’s John Rudolph, Proctor’s Kyle Wojtysiak and Ely’s Frank Ivancich
