Minnesota spring may be taking it’s time arriving, but spring sports have rolled straight into the post-season without a pause in the action! Take a look at where our teams are heading as they wrap up the regular season for 2019.
With a 9-6 regular season record, the Lions Baseball team has secured the #3 seed in the Section 4A tournament. As the #3 seed they advance directly to double elimination play and host the winner of Tuesday’s Goodhue vs Chesteron matchup on Thursday, May 23. NO gate admission will be charged, so the team is looking for a great crowd for their 4:30 pm opening pitch! Section 4A Tournament runs through June 6 and the champion advances to the State Tournament on June 13-14. #WorkWins
Team First – Selflessness.
Energy – Every. Single. Day.
Hustle – In everything we do.
Purpose – We do everything with a purpose.
