Summary:

Coon Rapids Cardinal Little League rebounded from an earlier loss and swept a pair of games against Whitewater Country Little League to win the Minnesota state tournament at 8th Street Park in Duluth.

Whitewater Country had breezed past Coon Rapids Cardinal, 13-1, in the winner's bracket final of the four-team tournament, but Coon Rapids responded by averaging over eleven runs per game in its next three contests to emerge from the bottom bracket. Coon Rapids Cardinal eliminated Duluth Eastern Little League, 12-2, in the elimination bracket final, then forced the tournament to a deciding game with a 10-3 win over Whitewater Country.

In the winner-take-all 'if' game, Coon Rapids outmuscled Whitewater Country by a 13-10 margin, and advanced to the Midwest Region tournament in Indianapolis, Indiana. Coon Rapids Cardinal eventually finished as that tournament's runner-up.

Coon Rapids Cardinal was the fourth consecutive state champion to emerge from Minnesota's District 1, and the ninth in ten years.
