Spring Sports postponements and schedule changes
Postponements and schedule changes
It's once again time for the annual reshuffling of spring sports schedules. Every year, school Activities Directors do their best to put together a spring schedule, only to have Mother Nature throw a wrench into their plans.
NY Mills Baseball
We'll start with the NY Mills baseball team. The Eagles finally got underway Tuesday, but the game was moved to Verndale instead of being played at Jacobson Field.
Mills game today (April 16) is also being moved. Instead of a home game against Pillager, the Eagles will play at Pillager. The Schedule will be reversed later in the season when the Huskies come to NY Mills on May 12.
Mills first game of the year, scheduled on April 6 at Parkers Prairie, will be made-up at home on May 5 as part of a doubleheader.
Weather permitting, the Eagles will play their first home game on April 20 against Bertha-Hewitt.
NY Mills Softball
The Eagle softball team has already had four games postponed, including both of their games this week.
Each of the four games missed will be made up as doubleheaders later this spring (OTC-April 28, Parkers Prairie-May 5, Verndale-May 7, and Pillager-May 12).
Mills also made another schedule change to play Menahga in a doubleheader on April 30. The Lady Eagles open their season Saturday in the Menagha Tournament.
NY Mills Track
The Eagle track team did compete in the Little Amik indoor meet at Bemidji State last week, but their first two outdoor meets, at Sebeka on April 7, and at Hawley on April 14, were both canceled and are not likely to be rescheduled.
As of press time, the team's meets at Pillager on April 16 and at Perham on April 17 are still on as scheduled.
So far, the only Perham High School sport affected by the weather has been golf.
The Jacket girls team had canceled their invitational on April 13, and will not reschedule the event. They have also postponed the Heart O' Lakes Conference meet at Perham Lakeside Golf Course scheduled for tonight (April 16). No make-up date for that event has been set.
The Lady Jackets are expected to make their season debut at the Staples-Motley Invite on Saturday, April 18.
The Perham boys team has already canceled one meet, scheduled at Pelican Rapids on April 14. They are still on for their season opener in the HOL at WCA at Tipsinah Mounds G.C.
The Jackets home invite at PLGC on April 18 has been rescheduled to May 18. Perham's HOL event at PLGC is scheduled for Monday, May 20.
Due to the late start in their season's we will run the PHS boys and girls golf previews in next week's EOT Illustrated.
