Huskies Hold Outdoor Practice; Season to Open this Week
Owatonna's high school baseball team held its first practice of the season on their home field Monday. There was some water on the warning track but the team was able to utilize the field and bid farewell to the gym at the Owatonna Middle School.
If the Huskies play their home doubleheader against Mankato East Tuesday they will beat their late start in 2013 by two days. If the field isn't ready for Tuesday's game, OHS will match that opening of five years ago when they go to Rochester Mayo Thursday for a doubleheader.
A decision will come early Tuesday regarding the Huskies' softball doubleheader at Mankato East, which is scheduled to be a Kat Kountry 105 broadcast at 4PM. OHS boys' lacrosse will play at Mankato if their field is dry enough. Girls' and boys' track and boys' tennis are all scheduled for Tuesday and should compete without a hitch, although some afternoon rain showers are in the forecast.
Blooming Prairie baseball opened its season Monday night. Triton softball played its second game of the year, hosting Randolph.
