The Cornerstone Insurance Group Columbus Seniors are area champions.
Cornerstone defeated Lincoln Northeast 5-1 in last night’s A6 area championship in Fremont. Columbus starter Abe Christensen pitched a complete game. He gave up one run on five hits and four walks, with three strikeouts in seven innings.
Cornerstone has a 17-11 record after going 4-1 in the area tourney. Columbus, which earned a trip to state last year but did not win an area title, will play in the Class A National Division state tournament in Hastings. It begins on Saturday. The bracket has not yet been released.
