WINNER—Behind a strong pitching performance by Briggs Havlik, the Mitchell High School baseball team picked up a 5-1 victory over Winner/Colome on Monday at Leahy Bowl in Winner. Havlik, who earned the win, only allowed one run on three hits in six innings pitched with three strikeouts. "He worked both sides of the plate and had a lot of easy outs," MHS head coach Luke Norden said. "We made some good plays defensively, especially getting some foul outs, which really keeps the pitch count low."
