The Cottage Grove VFW Post 8752 team played in the St. Louis Park Wood Bat Tournament and ended up tournament champs winning all three of their games this past weekend. They defeated Minneapolis Southwest 17-0 the first game and Osseo 1-0 in the second game. Cottage Grove played Irondale in the championship game on Sunday and won with a final score of 4-2. Matt Wilkinson was voted MVP of the tournament giving Cottage Grove two wins on the mound as well as strong play at the shortstop position. He also was dominant at the plate with a handful of hits and RBIs throughout the weekend. Lex Lindow got the other win against Osseo as the defense played an error free weekend to capture the championship.
