Youth derailed the Wadena-Deer Creek Shockers over the weekend in the Region 14C baseball tournament.

After shading Verndale 3-2 Friday night in the opening round of 14C play, the Shockers went down twice, losing to Nimrod 7-2 on Saturday and Bertha-Hewitt 5-2 on Sunday. Both Nimrod and Bertha-Hewitt have young, fast clubs.

The Shockers ended their season at 18-15 and in doing so said good-bye to manager Randy Jahnke, who is retiring after 10 years at the helm.
