The Milton baseball team clinched its first outright Badger South Conference title and also added a nonconference victory on Saturday, May 29, in Milton.
The Red Hawks beat Stoughton 14-2 to move to 11-1 in the Badger South standings. Monona Grove owns the second-place spot with an 8-4 mark.
Milton plays Monona twice to close out conference play. A worse-case scenario for the Red Hawks would be two losses to the Silver Eagles, which would still put Milton a game ahead of Monona Grove.
The Red Hawks earned a share of the Badger South Conference title in 2019. This season Milton will be alone in first place, the first time solely securing the top spot since joining the conference.
Milton also beat Beloit Memorial, 11-1, on Saturday.
The wins moved the Red Hawks to 14-5 overall on the season.
