Derek Bycroft led the AA Iola Indians past Rose Hill in Iola’s American Legion zone championship game. The Indians are through to state for the eighth time in the last nine years. 

The Indians rode past Yates Center 11-1 and Rose Hill 7-0 on Saturday, and again defeated Rose Hill 3-0 in Sunday’s championship rematch. 

Throughout the zone tournament, Iola’s pitching was impeccable. Against Yates Center, Ethan Tavarez threw the complete game for Iola, allowing one run to go along with five strikeouts.
