BRANDON-EVANSVILLE — For the fifth straight season, the Brandon-Evansville baseball team has had a winning season. After having a 5-6 record on May 9, B-E won six out of its final seven games, including a 1-0 win over then-undefeated Upsala-Swanville on May 19.

The Chargers beat Browerville-Eagle Valley but lost to Ashby and Parkers Prairie in the Section 6A Playoffs to finish the 2022 campaign with a 12-9 (9-8 Section 6A) record.

At the season-ending banquet, Brady Perleberg was named the team’s Most Valuable Player in addition to winning the hardest worker, hustle and heart, and top gun award with a 1.31 ERA on the mound.

Dezmond White took home two awards, both of which are batting awards. He won the Silver Slugger award with a .383 batting average and he was the RBI leader with 21.

Defensively, Braydon Englund won the team’s Golden Glove Award because of his play.


Although he was limited in what he could do on the field for the season with a torn labrum, senior Titus Fuller still won the team’s CHARGER Award for his leadership qualities on and off the diamond.
