The New York Mills softball team is the Pizza Ranch Restaurant Team of the Week.

The Eagles repeated as Class A State Champions by winning three straight games at Caswell Park in North Mankato last Thursday and Friday.

New York Mills opened their sixth straight state tournament with a walk-off come from behind win over Hayfield, beating the Vikings by the score of 6-5.  They followed that victory with a 5-3 semifinal win over the Randolph Rockets.  In the title game, the Eagles built a big lead and then held on to beat Edgerton/Southwest Minnesota Christian 9-6 in a rematch of the 2017 championship game.

New York Mills finished the season with a 27-1 record, winning their last eleven games.
