Owatonna Baseball and Softball Wednesday, Tennis and Lacrosse Thursday
Husky baseball and softball split their games against Winona on Wednesday. Boys tennnis and lacrosse are scheduled for Thursday, with a 6PM boys lacrosse game on KRFO AM 1390.
After getting rained out last week, KRFO radio plans to broadcast a lacrosse game for the first time on Thursday, May 14, as the Owatonna boys entertain Rochester Century at 6PM at the Owatonna Husky Stadium. That game will start a doubleheader, as the OHS girls will square off with the Panthers at 8PM.
Owatonna has had varsity lacrosse since 2008. There were boys and girls club teams for a few years before that. Lacrosse combines elements of soccer, basketball and hockey. Teams try to advance a small, rubber ball up the field. Boys lacrosse allows more contact than the girls. Boys wear shoulder pads, helmets and heavy gloves. Girls wear protective eye wear.
Weather could be a factor. Lacrosse is usually played when it is raining, but not in thunderstorms. Last week's OHS boys game was postponed against Minnehaha Academy when the field became unplayable by heavy rain.
OHS baseball won at Winona on Wednesday 8-2 in nine innings. The game was moved up a day due to the rain in Thursday's forecast. The Winhawks scored two in the seventh inning to force extra innings. The Huskies scored six in the ninth inning. The scoring started with a suicide squeeze and including a two-run home run from Grant Wehseler. The Huskies host Rocori on Friday night at 7:30PM at Dartt's Park.
The Owatonna softball team dropped an 8-4 decision to Winona on Wednesday. OHS goes to Rochester to play Century on Friday at 5PM in a make-up game.
Huskies girls golf finished fourth at Troy Burne Course in Hudson, Wis. They shot 378 in the eight-team field. Forest Lake won with 321. Maddie Peglow led OHS with 90. Maddie Zulk shot 91.
Thursday's schedule includes Owatonna boys tennis playing in the second round of the Section 1AA tournament at No. 2 seed Lakeville North. Rain might move the match to Lifetime Fitness in Lakeville.
