The 5th ranked Western Dubuque Bobcats will make a return trip to the state high school baseball tournament next week after a complete domination of Davenport Central last night in the 4-A Substate Final at Farley Park. The Bobcats Sam Goodman tossed a no hitter on just 60 pitches in an 8-0 victory over the Blue Devils. W-D who made the state semi-finals last season will play their first game on Wednesday at Principal Park. The quarterfinal pairings should be announced later this morning. The others in the 4-A field are: Iowa City West, Pleasant Valley, Ankeny, Dowling Catholic, Johnston, Southeast Polk, and Urbandale.
The Wahlert Golden Eagles saw their season come up a little short of the state tournament. In a hard fought 3-A Substate Final in Dewitt, Wahlert lost 3-2 to 3rd ranked Central Dewitt. The Eagles finished their season at 18-and-22.
