The Owatonna High School girls swimming and diving team will have home pool advantage during all their meets this season. So will all their opponents. In this modified prep sports season the swim and dive season will be conducted on a virtual basis. The Huskies have eleven meets scheduled. In each case Owatonna and their opponent will swim in their own pool and compare times to determine the winner.

In order to observe safe social distancing, indoor pool decks aren't big enough to allow for two teams, plus meet officials, to gather. In fact parents and fans are not likely to be able to attend. Minnesota health officials have indicated visitors are not allowed in schools.

Swimming is the only indoor sport left for the fall sports season after volleyball was shifted to spring. High school clay target shooting has always been held as a virtual sport with computer scoring.

Girls tennis plus boys and girls soccer and cross country will also be staged this spring. In each case Owatonna teams will only play Big Nine Conference teams. Plans for postseason competition have not been announced at this point.
