Appleton North’s Evan Polce held Oshkosh North to just three hits as the Spartans dropped their regular-season finale, 3-1, to the Lightning on Saturday.
Mike Becker, Mike Lee and Alex Hintze had singles off of Polce, who walked one and struck out one.
Andrew Winchell took the loss in relief for North. He struck out two and walked one in four innings, while allowing two unearned runs.
The Spartans will now turn its attention to the WIAA tournament where it will host Oshkosh West on Tuesday at 4:30 p.m. in a regional semifinal.
