The Maniacs battled Cole Valley Christian in a Class 2A play-in game Saturday, May 15 at McCall.

Brayden Turcott pitched all five innings and had six strikeouts. Joe Sparano went 2-for-5 (both doubles) and had three RBI, while freshman Bodey Howell stepped up and was 2-for-2 with three RBI for the Maniacs (15-8).

“We’re excited,” Orofino coach Dylan Midstokke told the Lewiston Tribune. “We haven’t been (to State) in about six years, so it’s a long time coming.... Our seniors stepped up big time.”
