WATERTOWN — Watertown’s boys, in their fourth season as a program, posted their first-ever 7-0 win Monday, defeating Van Buren County.

Brian Putnam defeated Alex Cope 8-5, Daylin Hunt downed Brandon Skiles 8-2, Michael Watson shut out Chas Moffitt 8-0 and Dillon Abrams beat Dalith Lawson 8-1. The Purple Tigers won No. 5 by forfeit as Van Buren didn’t have enough players.

Putnam and Preston Tomlinson topped Cope and Skiles 8-2 while Isaac Stults and Zach Johnson beat Moffitt and Lawson 8-1 as Watertown improved to 2-0 in District 8-Small.

Watertown will travel to Woodbury on Wednesday to take on Cannon County.
