Alexandria senior Hunter Rebrovich’s final round for the Cardinals and the way he summed things up afterwards was a good description of not only the last two days for this team, but of this season as a whole.
The West Central Area softball team finished in second place in the Section 6A playoffs. After beating Frazee 15-11 on Thursday, the Knights lost in the section championship to New York Mills 13-0. WCA Played NYM on Tuesday and also lost 13-0.
The Osakis boys golf team had two Silverstreaks qualify for the second day of the Section 3A golf meet at Eagle Creek Golf Club in Willmar. Logan Lipkeshot a 98 on day won to qualify for day two. His second day score of 95 gave him a two-day total of 193. He finished in 18th place. Jacob Uhl shot a 96 on day one, but struggled to have the same success on day two. His two-day total of 219 was good enough for 31st place.
Three weeks ago, the Parkers Prairie baseball team lost to Osakis 10-0 in five innings. The defending Section 6A champions of three straight years had been shut out in six games and had a record of 5-8. After the game, Derek Denny had a loss of words trying to describe how the season was going. However, he was reassuring in the fact that they play their best baseball when the weather gets warmer.
The West Central Area softball team would soon like to forget Tuesday night’s Section 6A semifinal game against New York Mills. At a neutral site in Minnewaska, the Knights fell 13-0 in six innings – giving up nine unearned runs. “We aren’t going to win games against teams like this if we play like we did in the field tonight,” WCA head coach Bill Aufdenkamp said. “We stuck with them in the beginning there. Just wasn’t our day.”
The Osakis baseball team took home a convincing road win over Holdingford Tuesday afternoon. The Silverstreaks beat the Huskers (8-12) 14-1 behind a 10-run second inning. After scoring three runs in the top of the first, Osakis had five extra base hits all driving in runs. Doubles from Carter Rost, Logan Hartshorn, Isaac Froemming, Hunter Inganger and a triple from Luke Imdieke helped put Osakis ahead 13-0.
Alexandria adapted bowling coach Wade Traphagen knew the path through the state tournament was going to be a little tougher for his bowlers after graduating eight experienced seniors from last year’s team. With many new faces making their first trip to the state tournament in Brooklyn Park Friday afternoon, Traphagen was happy to see some success.
The Minnewaska softball team had a hard time getting things going against Morris Area-Chokio-Alberta on Tuesday night. The Lakers fell to the Tigers 15-2 in six innings. MCA put together an eight-run top of the sixth inning to seal the deal. Minnewaska wasn’t able to capitalize on many opportunities to bring runners home. Even though they had 12 team hits, they stranded six runners in scoring position.
The Osakis softball team got back to .500 with an 11-4 win over Swanville Tuesday night. The Silverstreaks picked up an important road win over the Bulldogs behind strong bats in the middle of the order. With the score tied 4-4 in the third inning, Osakis scored seven unanswered runs. Tia Dykema went 4-for-4 with an RBI. Jaden Klimek went 2-for-4 with a home run and two RBIs. Shea Olson also went 2-for-4 with two RBIs.
The Alexandria boys tennis team walked away with two more wins at the Fergus Falls triangular Tuesday afternoon. The Cardinals got a pair of 6-1 victories over Fergus Falls and Minnewaska. With seven matches in seven days, head coach Dave Ronning decided to change things up.
