"Our regular season came to an end Monday night when we beat New Glarus to earn a share of the Capitol South Conference championship with Cambridge. This is the first conference championship for Belleville baseball since the 2000 season, and the first conference championship since Belleville has been a part of the Capitol South Conference," said Coach Griffin Rear. "I couldn't be happier for this group of guys to have earned a conference championship after all of the hard work they have put in this season. We will enjoy the success we had during the conference season but our work isn't finished."
