The state’s longest winning streak in high school baseball was snapped just one shy of the all-time record. Davenport Assumption beat class 2A top ranked and defending state champion Wilton 7-0 Tuesday night. The Beavers were looking to equal the all-time Iowa record of 59 straight wins.
Assumption coach Billy Argo says anytime you beat a quality team, it’s a great win, and especially under these circumstances. Argo says his team will play Wilton again in the first round of the district tournament, and that will be the game that really matters.
Argo says Wilton is in their district and it’s a team you have to beat to move on. With six state titles expectations are always high for Assumption and Argo says this year is no different. He says last year they finished two games over .500, but the same expectations are there. Argo says he had high expectations for last year’s team and this year it’s the same. The Knights are 16-3 on the season.
