Owatonna girls fast pitch softball built an 8-2 lead over Lakeville South. But the defending state champion Cougars rallied back for an 11-9 victory to knock the Huskies out of the Section 1AAA tournament.

Blooming Prairie softball lost the subsection final to Hayfield 5-0 but bounced back with a 10-4 win over Waterville to earn a trip back to Todd Park in Austin on Tuesday.

NRHEG baseball upset Waterville 10-4 to advance into the section 2AA semifinals Tuesday at Waseca.

Owatonna boys and girls track finished seventh in the Big Nine conference meet Friday at Mankato East.
