     The defending state champion and current leader of the Big Eight Conference, the Sun Prairie Cardinals, are ranked fifth in the Division I Wisconsin Baseball Coaches Association rankings to kick off the month of May. 

     The Cardinals sit at 10-2 overall on the season just ahead of Madison West (7-2) in the conference standings.  

     So far this season the Cardinals have scored 75 runs, averaging 6.25 runs per game, and have only allowed an average of 2.4 runs per game as the team has surrendered 29 runs.
