ST. CLOUD -- Ridgewater College baseball made great strides this spring, but that was small consolation to coach Joel Barta after losing 5-2 to Riverland College on Monday.

"I don't care for silver," said the second-year leader. "It's not my favorite color."

The gold medals went to the Blue Devils for the second year in a row. The Austin team advances to the NJCAA Division III Tournament in Tyler, Texas.
