In high school baseball, one of two area coverage teams advanced on with a victory last night in Class 1A District Semifinal play. Maquoketa Valley fell to Calamus-Wheatland 9-1 but the third-ranked Lynx of North Linn improved to 38-3 with a 4-0 win over Bellevue Marquette. The Wildcats say goodbye to 6 seniors with a 17-15 record.
