As Snow Melts, Prep Teams See Schedule Changes
Last week's snowstorm might turn out to be just a blip on the radar of the high school spring sports schedule as a number of teams appear set to get their games in on Monday, April 15. But there are several location changes due to field conditions along with at least a couple of postponements.
Owatonna's boys' lacrosse opener at Northfield will get rescheduled to another date due to field conditions. However, it looks like the OHS girls will get their opener in as scheduled against the Raiders at the Owatonna High School field at 7:15 pm Monday. OwatonnaLive.com will carry the game. Triton softball against Goodhue is postponed.

The Blooming Prairie at WEM baseball game is rescheduled to be played in Blooming Prairie.

On Sunday, Owatonna baseball tweeted a picture that Fuller Field at Dartt's Park was looking for their game against Mankato West Tuesday at 5 pm.
