The South Winneshiek baseball team got its 2017 campaign started Monday evening, May 22, in Calmar as Class 2A perennial power New Hampton came to town.

While the game began Monday, inclement weather intervened and forced the conclusion of the contest to be determined the following day.

With New Hampton holding a narrow 2-0 lead after three innings of play, the Chickasaws flexed their muscles in the fourth and fifth innings, scoring five runs in each, to end the game with a 12-0 final.

Game one saw the first six batters from both teams go down in order.
