It is the first team to win a state championship in the school's history.
Heritage Senior and University of Missouri recruit Seth Halvorsen became the fifth player in Minnesota State High School League history to hit two home runs in a state tournament game - "just more than a week after being drafted by the Minnesota Twins in the 30th round of the 2018 Major League Baseball Amateur Draft," according to the MSHSL. "He was also the winning pitcher after striking out 16 in the seven-inning shutout. He struck out the final six batters that he faced."
The Heritage Christian Academy team is led by Head Coach Jon Ledeboer and assistant coaches Chad Richards, Manny Walk, and Timmy Thurston.
