Huskies Girls Tennis and Volleyball Face Challenges Tuesday
Owatonna’s unbeaten mark in girls tennis will be put to the test Tuesday when the 11-0 Huskies host top-five rated Rochester Mayo. The Spartans have won the section title 20 times over the last 21 years, including the last four over OHS. The Huskies host the Spartans at 4:30PM at the Owatonna High School courts.
OHS volleyball hosts Northfield at 7PM in the gym and live on Kat Kountry 105FM. The Huskies (2-5 overall, 1-0 in the Big Nine) closed the Southwest Minnesota Challenge in Marshall Saturday with a victory over Yellow Medicine East, but went 1-4 at the tournament.
The Raiders (8-1, 1-0) went 4-1 at the same tournament with their only loss coming to top-ten ranked Marshall. Northfield returns several players who were part of a Big Nine runner-up finish last fall.
Also on Tuesday’s OHS schedule, the boys soccer team goes to Winona, while the girls host the Winhawks. Both matches begin at 7PM. Owatonna’s team are coming off shutout losses to highly-ranked Minnetonka Saturday.
In regional volleyball, Blooming Prairie is at Lyle/Pacelli, NRHEG hosts Alden-Conger and Triton travels to No. 2A Hayfield.
Monday Blooming Prairie’s spikers beat Randolph in five sets and Medford lost at Byron 3-2. Owatonna’s b-squad football team blanked Rochester Mayo 34-0.
