With a 6-5 win over Bethlehem Academy Friday at home, the United South Central baseball team clinched the title for the south division of the Gopher Conference.

The Rebels have won five of their last six games. The last two have been against quality competition. Mankato Loyola and Bethlehem Academy have a combined record of 22-9.
