MADISON, Wis. (WBAY) - Kaukauna softball ran it back. The Ghosts defended their D1 state title with a dominate 11-3 win over Sun Prairie, the same team they beat a year ago.

Highlights from the title game include Kaukauna’s Haylie Wittman hitting a homerun in the 1st inning and Karly Meredith with an inside-the-park homerun in the 2nd.

Freedom High School earned its first ever softball state title Saturday afternoon. The Irish beat Jefferson 5-4 in the Division 2 championship match.

When the game was tied at 4-4 in the 8th inning, Kierstin Kriewaldt came up huge with the RBI to bring Naleyah Bork home for the winning run.

This was Freedom’s first state appearance in 25 years.

In Division 3, New Holstein was making their first ever state appearance, but fell to Poynette in the championship game 5-3.
