A pair of local pickleball players have qualified for the National Games: Jerry Hartmann of Owatonna and Judy Chavie of Faribault (who plays with the Owatonna group).

Results from the Senior Games 2014 in Minneapolis
Jerry Hartmann, Owatonna, placed 4th in 55-59 men's doubles and also 3rd in 55-59 men's singles.
Judy Chavie placed in the women's singles.  She is from Faribault but plays with the Owatonna group.  Judy will be in a tournament this Friday in Bloomington. 
This qualifies them both to play in the National Senior Games in 2015 in Minneapolis.
Owatonna hosted the 2013 Senior Games which involved several sports.
