Owatonna Teams on the Move [Thursday Roundup]
High school spring sports in Minnesota can be a work in adaptation. After pouring rain Wednesday, some modifications were necessary to complete the Thursday schedule. Owatonna's baseball game at Northfield was shifted to Fuller Field, where the Huskies acted as the visiting team. The varsity softball game was moved to Manthey Park. The boys lacrosse game at Apple Valley was changed to Farmington where they have an artificial turf.
Owatonna boys tennis played their match as scheduled at OHS, but had to wait out a short rain delay with three matches yet to be completed. The Huskies had already wrapped up a win over Rochester John Marshall by then and eventually won 5-2 to improve to 4-0 on the season (3-0 in the Big Nine).
The Huskies swept doubles with Ethan Engel/Spencer Intress, Brendan Kath/Leo Gantert and Collin Pederson/Tyler Harris and got a pair of singles wins with Lincoln Maher and Mac Pilcher.
OHS baseball topped Northfield 10-3. The Huskies went down 1, 2, 3 in the top of the first inning but scored in each of the next four innings. Owatonna collected at least two runs and three hits in each of those innings. Matt Seykora led the Huskies at the plate, going 3-for-4. Ethan Walter had two hits including a triple. Jon Klecker added two hits including a double. Zach Wiese had a pair of hits.
Matt Segler tossed 4 1/3 innings, striking out six and walking none while giving up five hits and three runs, but only one was earned. Bradyn Truelson went the remaining 2 2/3 innings while allowing two hits and no walks.
Owatonna softball lost 16-0 to Northfield.
The Huskies boys lacrosse team lost 11-4 to Apple Valley in a game played at Farmington High School due to field conditions at Apple Valley. Dawson Ringhofer scored twice. Nicolas Anderson and Tommy Wall also scored. Mason Oland had two assists. Wall and Dom Wondra also assisted. It was Owatonna's first game of the season.
