"Why are there games on Monday?" I fielded that question a couple of times this week. Owatonna High School girls hockey and basketball had games on Monday, December 6. It's due to the OHS Holiday Concert on Tuesday, December 7 at 7 pm at the high school auditorium - one of my favorite events of the year.

On Monday, the OHS girls' hockey team had their six-game winning streak to open the season ended by No. 10 rated Rosemount 6-1. The Huskies' girls' basketball team lost at Red Wing 60-54 in a see-saw game.
