Shadowbrooke Golf Course was the site of the Tuesday, May 6, Central Minnesota Conference golf meet, hosted by Howard Lake-Waverly-Winsted. The K-EV-W girls had a tough time of it, and who can blame them, with the limited time they’ve had on the courses this year. Osakis took first-place team honors with a 161, and their own Peyton Garcia captured Meet Medalist accolades, shooting a blistering 38.
The conference battle included teams from Belgrade-Brooten-Elrosa, Howard Lake-Waverly-Winsted, Kimball-Eden Valley-Watkins, Maple Lake, Pierz, Rockford and Osakis.

The Eden Valley-Watkins-Kimball track teams performed in the Little Crow Invite at New London-Spicer Monday, May 5. Emily Donnay again took the honors, breaking the 800m school record with a time of 2:26.72.
Achieving a number of personal bests, both the boys and girls teams finished in third place, in the seven-team competition. The women’s first-place honors went to Litchfield, and in the men’s division, first place was awarded to New London-Spicer.
Eagles’ sophomore Logan Linn faced the minimum fifteen hitters, allowing no hits and striking out nine in EV-W’s 10-0 five-inning affair vs. Kerkhoven-Murdock-Sunburg, Friday, May 2. The Eagles provided plenty of support for Linn, pounding out nine hits and padding the scoreboard in three of the five innings played. Austin Schlangen went 2 for 3 with three RBI and Matt Unterberger went 1 for 3 with two RBI. Eden Valley-Watkins portrayed the quintessential team effort for the hometown faithful, picking up the impressive non-conference win and bidding a fond farewell to The Fighting Saints. Coach Mike Tomsche is overjoyed to pick up the win. “Logan Linn threw a gem and we played solid defense in support. We are happy we put together a good complete game. We are hoping to learn from this game and take away the importance of good pitching and defense.”
