Madison Broncos first baseman Matt Burpee helped the Dell Rapids Mudcats to claim the 2021 State B championship at Cadwell Park in Mitchell last week.
The Mudcats rolled to a 16-1 win over the Flandreau Cardinals in the championship game on Sunday, as Dell Rapids went 5-0 during the tournament.
Dell Rapids opened the tournament with a 15-0 win over the Lake Norden Lakers and followed that with a 13-5 win over the Wynot (Neb.) Expos. In the quarterfinals, Dell Rapids picked up a 7-1 win over the Larchwood (Iowa) Diamonds.
Dell Rapids faced the Winner/Colome Pheasants in the semifinals and picked up a 6-0 win. That set up a championship clash between the two teams that played in the District 4B championship game in Colman last month.
