  • Girls rip R-P quickly in season softball opener
    The Caledonia/Spring Grove softball team played a familiar opponent to finally open up their season, albeit in a different location.

  • MSHSL offers options for baseball, softball
    The spring weather in Minnesota has left a lot to be desired, especially if you’re a coach or member of a spring sports team around southeast Minnesota. It’s even more challenging if you’re a schedule maker (athletic director), and the Minnesota State High School League is taking steps to make it easier to get games in, provided the weather does cooperate at some point.

  • Lions reload for repeat trap title run
    To say that 2017 was good to the Spring Grove trap shooters is a pretty big understatement. As this year’s Lions prepare for the spring season, most of them were around when Spring Grove won the Class A state title at the Minnesota Clay Target State Tournament last season. They also placed ninth at the Minnesota State High School League State Tournament that features all nine classes in the same competition. And they did all that with only one senior on last year’s roster

  • No games yet - nothing but normal for early April
    It is more the expectation than the exception that the first week of Spring Grove spring sports games, meets and matches all fell victim to snow and wintry temperatures.

  • Depth offers options for softball lineup
    There are numerous players who can contribute at different defensive positions. That is a positive, but it will take some shuffling and experimentation for 28-season veteran coach Michelle Anderson and first-year assistant Chad Augedahl to determine the best alignment as the Caledonia/Spring Grove girls embark this week on the 2018 softball season.

  • Track boys prepare for home meet
    Assuming the weather will get warm enough at some point, the Caledonia/Spring Grove boys track team is preparing to open up the spring season. Head coach Carl Fruechte returns for his 19th season leading the program and brings back some familiar names from last season.

  • State qualifiers return for track girls
