Prep Schedule, May 26
[UPDATE] Tuesday's high school sports schedule was dotted with action in lacrosse, baseball, softball and track and field. But the weather has forced some changes.
Lacrosse (Girls game moved to Wednesday.)
The Owatonna girls open the playoffs at home again this season. The Huskies ended up with the fourth seed and will host Rochester Century Wednesday at Husky Stadium. The Huskies whipped Century 11-1 in their only meeting of the season. Owatonna (8-4) got seeded behind Lakeville North (4-9) even though the Huskies are ahead of the Panthers in the power rankings. Lakeville South is the No. 1 seed.
The OHS boys travel to Lakeville North on Tuesday night for a 7PM face off with the section's top seed. Owatonna won just one game this season, but has shown continued improvement with a young team.
Baseball (NRHEG game moved to Wednesday.)
The NRHEG Panthers scored an upset last week on the road at WEM. Wednesday they are looking for similar results as the No. 7 seed Panthers play at No. 3 Waseca. Game time is 5PM.
Several games in Section 1 still need to be completed. Austin and Century will resume their elimination game in Rochester on Wednesday after starting the game Monday in Dundas. Goodhue and Hayfield also need to complete a winner's bracket game. The loser will then face Lyle / Pacelli in an elimination contest.
Softball (BP game moved to Wednesday at 3:00pm.)
Blooming Prairie faces a must-win scenario Wednesday at 3:00pm when they play Fillmore Central at Todd Park in Austin. The winner will play again right afterward. No. 1AA-ranked in the state Kasson-Mantorville also faces elimination when they play Winona Cotter in the loser's bracket.
Track and field
Triton High School in Dodge Center is the host location for the Section 1A meet beginning on Tuesday and continuing on Thursday.
