Several local high school teams played their season openers Friday. At least a couple more will get their seasons underway Saturday. Outdoor baseball and softball should start soon. Many teams have had events and games canceled that won't be made up.
High school baseball and softball teams are itching to get outside after being cooped up in gyms due to the cold temperatures and fields still covered in snow in most cases. A couple of scrimmages for local teams are canceled this week. Some track teams have had the luxury of participating at indoor meets at area colleges. Golf squads are swinging away inside hoping for warmer days.
Because of commitments to the St. Olaf, Carleton and Gopher football teams, our ability to cover teams in high school tournaments is a bit limited this weekend. So here is a look at what could be the schedule for Saturday sports coverage.
