The Glenville-Emmons baseball team, which has rallied from behind so many times this year, fell behind once too often Tuesday and lost 8-7 to Kenyon-Wanamingo in a sub-section tournament game at Austin.

&uot;We just ran out of gas,&uot; said coach Louie Toulouse. &uot;We kept coming from behind, coming from behind, but we couldn’t put them away. It’s been the story of our whole year.&uot;

But it was an excellent year for the Wolverines, who finished 15-8 overall and shared the championship in the Western Division of the Southeast Conference at 6-2.

&uot;I think we had a pretty good year,&uot; said Toulouse. &uot;We’re disappointed we lost, because we wanted to go to section. But I think, at the beginning of the year, if someone had told us we’d win 15 games, we’d be happy.&uot;

Andrew Greibrok was the lone Wolverine with more than one hit Tuesday, going 2-for-3 with two runs and an RBI. Matt Learn was 1-for-3 with a two-run home run. Adding one hit apiece were Seth Stadheim, Richie Mathis, Brandon Brackey, Jay Wadding, Nick Flatness and Brian Soper.

Greibrok started on the mound and pitched 1 2/3 innings, allowing four earned runs on three hits; he walked three and struck out one. Mitch Meier went the final 5 1/3 innings and took the loss.
