With a great deal of momentum gained by a late-season surge in which they've won six of their last eight games, the Belgrade-Brooten-Elrosa Jaguars baseball team received the number two playoff seed in Sub-Section 5A-West earlier today.

The Jaguars, 8-11 overall (4-10 Central Minnesota Conference), will host the winner of the upcoming Royalton vs. Kerkhoven-Murdock-Sunburg game for the sub-section quarterfinals this Friday in Elrosa at 5 p.m. The number two seed is the highest playoff ranking for B-B-E baseball since 2008, when they were the top seed.

Further details, including what time Friday's playoff game starts and what next week's schedule is if the Jaguars win the opener, will be posted on Wednesday.
