The Vikings have also won six Lenawee County Athletic Association under Moody as well, including this season with a record 13-1.
Dundee’s lone loss in conference play came in the second game of a doubleheader against Blissfield 11-10 after the Vikings had defeated the Royals 3-2 in the opener.
Among Dundee’s losses this season were to Division I state powers Hartland and Wood have and Division 3 state power Clinton and Ypsilanti Lincoln.
Dundee also owns a pair of victories over No. 8-ranked Clinton this season.
