The Brandon-Evansville softball team ball hasn’t seen a loss in nearly a month. With the momentum of a 12-game winning streak, the Chargers hosted Parkers Prairie for the opener of the North Sub Section 6, Class A playoffs and it couldn’t have gone any better for B-E.

The Osakis boys golf team is finding a different rhythm this year. With half of the roster made up of freshmen and one eighth grader, it’s a young team that is still finding its place competitively. “It’s a leisure sport for them,” Osakis head coach Shelly Engfer-Triebenbach said. “My graduating seniors are more leisure golfers than serious competitors. The seniors this year were very nurturing to the younger members coming up.”
The Brandon-Evansville baseball team went to Hancock last Thursday night for a Section 6A and Pheasant Conference contest.

Alex Jost had just won in the fourth singles competition, 6-4, 6-4. Sartell had three wins under its belt and the Cardinals had two with Jost's victory and Zach Wosepka and Hunter Croonquist grabbing a two set second-doubles win.
The Brandon-Evansville baseball team hosted Hillcrest Lutheran Academy on Monday night for a Section 6A and Pheasant Conference doubleheader.
