Rost, Twedt advance to second round

The section 5A golf tournament got off to a stormy start. The opening round for the boys was postponed from May 25 to May 26 due to the dangerous storms that passed through the area and delayed the start of the girls 5A first round.   By the time the weather cleared, a shotgun start was needed, as the window to finish before the next storm seemed to be 5 hours.    
Because starting all the girls all across the course, called a shotgun start,  the boys could not start until all the girls would have finished.   It would have been difficult to finish by sunset under those conditions.  read entire story. . . .

Hail, rain, then a loss to KMS

KMS turned a tight 2-0 lead 4-0 in the fifth and added five more for a 9-1 lead after six innings.  read entire story. . . .

Minneota-Canby’s time in the Section 3AA playoffs lasted just five innings — due to New London-Spicer’s 14-1 victory in the first round.
Two first inning errors put the Vikings “under the gun,” 2-0, and they never recovered. “Jerry (assistant Coach Kockelman) and I looked at each other and both said, ‘We would have been out of this’ — and we could have,” said Coach Heidi Boerboom.  read entire story. . . .
