GRAND CHUTE -- In a breakfast battle of defending WIAA state baseball champions, Webster pushed across two runs in the top of the sixth inning and held on for a 4-3 victory over Athens in a Division 4 semifinal at Fox Cities Stadium.

Webster (29-0) won the WIAA Division 3 state title last year, but dropped back to Division 4 this season. Athens (18-5) won the Division 4 title last year. The Tigers will play XXXXXXX Mineral Point or Belmont XXXXXXXX in the state championship game at 9 a.m. Thursday.

Coleton Peterson went 3-for-3 with an RBI for Webster, and Owen Washburn went 2-for-4. Both drove in a run.

Jake Denzine had two hits and Javon Penney doubled in a run for Athens, which scored two unearned runs in the bottom of the sixth to make it 4-3.

Oregon State-bound pitcher Jack Washburn, who also won the WIAA Division 3 state long jump title and took third in the high jump and sixth in the triple jump, worked the seventh inning. He gave up a leadoff walk, but got clean-up hitter Dakota Willemssen to ground into a double play and then got another ground out to save the victory for starter Hunter Rosenbaum.
