Jackson, Tenn - (WHNT) The Huntsville stars won the first half North Division championship Monday night despite losing in a rain shortened game to Jackson. Birmingham sealed the deal by defeating Tennessee 10-5, marking the Stars first Southern League Playoff berth since 2009.

The division championship ensures Huntsville's tenure in the rocket city will last at least one more playoff series. If nothing else the team will host at least one game in that first round series, and if they win the second half crown will get to host four games. The team is back at home June 5th against Mobile.
