With the 2017-18 school year and sports year slipping into the rear-view mirror, let's take a couple of minutes to highlight a few of the Owatonna High School sports accomplishments.

Each school year has its own identity and has a strong focus on the seniors. This past Owatonna sports year featured teams with senior-heavy rosters. The large class that was honored as O-Club members further drives home this point. Several members of the senior class will go on to play Division I or II athletics, while many others will compete at the Division III level.

OHS captured conference titles in wrestling, gymnastics, baseball and boys' and girls' lacrosse in 2017-18.

I consider it a privilege to cover the teams and players and congratulate them all. Whether they achieved their goals or not, they are better for having participated.
