It's an experiment that has worked out well.

The Windsor and Stewardson-Strasburg school districts decided to combine their baseball program this season to see whether combining in other sports might be worth a look.  The results are undeniable successful as Windsor/Stew-Stras captured the Cumberland 1A Sectional Saturday, defeating South Central 3-1.

Windsor/Stew-Stras will play Monday at 10am at Marion's Rent One Park in super sectional action against the Goreville Sectional champion.

South Central took a 1-0 lead in the bottom of the second inning, but Windsor/Stew-Stras bounced back with a three-run sixth inning to post the win.

Christian Vonderheide went the distance to post the win for Windsor/Stew-Stras, allowing the one run on four hits, walking two and striking out 10.  Dylan Peters took the loss for South Central, allowing the three runs, two earned, on eight hits, walking three and fanning five in 5-2/3 innings.  Shawn Meyer pitched the final 1-1/3 innings, allowing one hit and fanning one hitter.
