Wednesday is a big day for Mounds View High School teams chasing state tournament berths. Three different Mustangs teams are playing in section finals.

The baseball team faces Cretin-Derham Hall at 2:30 p.m. at Midway Stadium in St. Paul in the Section 4AAA championship game. This is Mounds View’s second crack at securing a spot in next week’s state tournament. Cretin forced today’s game by winning a 5-4, eight-inning decision over the Mustangs on Tuesday night.

Both of Mounds View’s lacrosse teams are also one victory away from advancing to state.

The boys lacrosse squad, seeded third in Section 5, takes on top-seeded Totino-Grace at 5 p.m. at Park Center High School. Mounds View reached the section final by beating sixth-seeded Robbinsdale Cooper 19-1 in the quarterfinals and second-seeded Robbinsdale Armstrong 8-5 in the semifinals.

The girls team is also taking on the top seed. Mounds View faces Robbinsdale Armstrong at 7 p.m. at Osseo High School. The second-seeded Mustangs advanced to the section title game by beating seventh-seeded Robbinsdale Cooper 21-7 in the quarterfinals and third-seeded Irondale 10-7 in the semifinals.

The lacrosse state tournament is June 11, 13 and 15 at Chaska High School and Chanhassen High School.
