The country’s top two high school baseball coaches in victories meet tonight when Lansing Kee plays host to Decorah. Kee High’s Gene Schultz is the nations all time leader in wins with 1,447 while Dennis Olejniczak from Decorah is second with 1,140. Kee is top ranked in 1A while Decorah is ranked fifth in class 3A.
Olejniczak says size if school doesn’t matter when Kee High is involved.He says you schedule the best competition you possibly can and Olejniczak says even the small schools can have a good pitcher and good defense up the middle to have a good team.
He says this will be a great early test for the Vikings. Olejniczak says you have to beat them as they’re not going to beat themselves. He says it goes beyond the baseball team to the towns involved, which he says are great baseball towns.
Olejniczak says the two programs enjoy competing against one another. He says these are two of the better teams in the state and the winner of the game has “a feather in your cap to start your season.”
