    “The girls had some nerves at first,” said Lund, “but got better each set as they settled down.  The third game Chatfield led 21-19 but the game got away after a tied scored at 22.  It was great to see the team's confidence grow as the match progressed. It’s going to be a fun year.”

    “We have a lot of rookies on the team, but I think they are learning fast,” said coach Chris Frye about the start of the season. “We had 14 kids run their first cross-country race ever at Wabasha-Kellogg Monday, and I saw improvement Thursday at Stewartville. If we keep improving, we should be competitive by the end of the season.”

  • The Chatfield softball team had an exceptional year, finishing with a 22-2 record, and a third place finish in the Section 1AA tournament.
