Fans React To Augustana National Championship

Saturday the Augustana Baseball Team won the Division II NCAA National championship. 

Now the team is back home. 

Augustana fans are still celebrating after the baseball team won its first national title.

Dozens of fans waited early this afternoon for the team to arrive back in Sioux Falls. Lacey Forthman and her family anxiously waited for their nephew Tyler Mitzel to get off the plane and welcome him home.

"We flew down and watched them play live their first couple of games, and then we came back and supported them from home for the rest of the tournament and we're just super proud of them and and it's awesome to be national champions," Augustana fan Lacey Forthman said.

Augie becomes the northern most school to win the national baseball title.
