AMATEUR BASEBALL: Waconia another quality state foe for Lastrup


When Lastrup meets Waconia in the Sweet 16 round of the Class C state tournament at 5 p.m. Saturday at St. Cloud it will mark the third game it has played an opponent it has never faced before.

Waconia, whose nickname, like Lastrup, is the Lakers, was runner-up in the 2011 state tournament, its first state appearance since 1931.

In the first two rounds of this year’s state tournament, Waconia has posted two impressive wins, beating Stark 5-1 and pounding Morris 21-3.
