MITCHELL – The Brookings Bombers Black beat Mitchell, 9-6, and Renner, 18-3, on Saturday at the Class AA 13-14 Majors State Tournament to finish pool play with a 2-1 record and qualify as a wildcard for Sunday’s semifinals.

But Sioux Falls West ended Black’s run at a title with a 16-11 victory on Sunday before the Bombers came back with an 8-3 win over Brandon in the third-place game.
