Rain disrupted the schedule of championship Thursday at Target Field, but four schools wound up leaving the home of the Twins on Thursday with championship trophies and medals. 

Class A: BOLD Warriors

The No. 1 BOLD Warriors defeated No. 2 New York Mills 8-0 for the school's second baseball championship since 2013. Jordan Sagedahl led BOLD by pitching a one-hit shutout. Ironically, BOLD won the 2013 state title with a one-hitter. 

Sagedahl took a no-hitter in the seventh inning (high school baseball only goes 7 innings) before giving up a hit. 

Class AA: Duluth Marshall Hilltoppers

A comeback to win a state title is always memorable, but even more so for Duluth Marshall, whose 4-2 win over No. 2 Minnehaha Academy is just the second state baseball championship for the City of Duluth and the first since Duluth Denfeld won a title in 1950. 

Duluth Marshall scored three runs in the top of the seventh to take the lead, which they held onto against a Redhawks team that had handed the Hilltoppers its only loss of the season back on April 20. 

Class AAA: St. Thomas Academy Cadets

The third-seeded Cadets claimed the state championship with a 1-0 victory following a nearly three-hour delay to start the game because of afternoon rain. The wait didn't matter for either pitcher, as St. Thomas Academy's Duke Coburn pitched a six-hit shutout with nine strikeouts, while Benilde-St. Margaret's starter Blake Mahmood allowed just two hits and three walks while also striking out nine batters. 

Class AAAA: East Ridge Raptors

The game didn't start until after 9 p.m., but the wait was worth it for East Ridge as they came from behind to top New Prague 7-2 for the school's first baseball title. The Raptors were getting mowed downed by New Prague left-hander Luke Tupy, who struck out 10 of 12 batters to start the game, but a five-run fifth inning and two-run sixth helped East Ridge rally from a 1-0 deficit.
