Coming off its fourth straight winning season, the Osakis softball team will need to do some retooling for 2013. The Silverstreaks were 12-5 last year, finishing second in the Prairie North Conference with an 8-3 record, but lost five solid players to graduation, including two-time All-state pitcher Sabrina Zimmel. Along with Zimmel, the Silverstreaks lost veterans Alex Anderson, Tonya Hetlund, Janna Juntunen and Alida Hovey. "This will be a very interesting season for us as we try to find the best combination of players to fill our open roster spots," said head coach John Stigman.
After a season that ended with a pair of state championships for the girls' team and some impressive performances from both the boys and the girls, the 2013 Osakis track and field season holds great promise. Boys' team The Silverstreak boys are coming off a season in which they grabbed third place in the Prairie Conference, but will need to replace two strong scorers. "We lost two very good distance runners last year in Nick [Sunder] and Devon [Nelson]," said head coach Lee VanNyhuis. "We are going to have a tough time filling those spots.
Both the Osakis boys' and girls' golf teams are looking to repeat as Central Minnesota Conference champions in 2013 and both have the talent to accomplish that.

With the ball in her hands, the 5'11" Dorn barreled toward the basket, a chance to tie the game and possibly win it if she could draw the foul for a free throw. But the Cougar's Monica Vega had other ideas.
