Owatonna's Parris Hovden threw a one-hitter and the Huskies hit three homeruns to get a 4-0 win at Rochester Century Tuesday afternoon. Hovden fanned seven and walked two. Coach Jeremy Moran said, "Parris had good control of her pitches tonight and did a really good job attacking the Century hitters."

The Huskies were limited to six hits, but made each one count, "three of those six hits were big hits. Samantha Bogen started off our scoring with a solo home run in the fourth inning. Then in the fifth, (Katelyn) Bentz and (Ana) Laduke hit back-to-back home runs to give us a 4-0 lead."

OHS has won five of their last seven games to improve to 6-5 overall. They play a doubleheader at Rochester Mayo Thursday, May 6 at 4 pm and host Andover Friday at 5 pm at Morehouse Park.

The Huskies baseball team also got a stellar pitching effort. Brayden Truelson threw a complete game two-hitter for a 4-1 win at Fuller Field at Dartt's Park. Payton Beyer had a pair of RBI singles. OHS hosts Rochester Mayo for a twin bill Thursday at 4 pm.

Owatonna boys tennis picked up a big 7-0 win over Mankato West at the OHS courts. That leaves the Huskies solidly in third place behind Mayo and Century. Owatonna's singles sweep came from Lincoln Maher, Mac Pilcher, Caleb Schuler and Liam Smith. Doubles teams included Charlie Tucker/Connor Whalen, Thomas Herzog/Aiden Engel and Nils Gantert/John Pfeifer. All the wins were in straight sets.

The AM 1390/94.7 FM broadcast schedule includes OHS girls lacrosse at Northfield Thursday, May 6 at 7 pm.
