Hunter Dekkers threw a one-hit shutout and struck out 12 in West Sioux's 3-0 win over Pocahontas Area in a class 2A sub-state final played at Cherokee Tuesday night.  The junior threw only 92 pitches and gave up an infield single to Chase Cook in the 3rd inning.

Dekkers also blasted a 2-run homer in the 3rd inning off Poky starting pitcher Christian Davidson.  Davidson allowed two earned runs on five hits while striking out three and walking three.

West Sioux, now 21-5, will play next Monday in the 2A state tournament in Des Moines.  The Indians, who were trying to reach the state tourney for the first time, close the year with a record of 24-5
