14 Huskies Join Owatonna’s O-Club
The Owatonna High School O-Club grew by 14 members this school year. Designation goes to student-athletes who letter at least five times in the high school career with three of those during their senior season. Special consideration was given to athletes on a spring roster this year.
Quite a few of the new O-Club members have indicated they will pursue athletics after high school. In some cases they have signed a Letter of Intent. Some plan to walk-on as they begin college. I've added those notes regarding the students that I am aware of who are planning to continue their athletic careers.
