Three Tiger teams end season this week at state tournaments

The 2014-‘15 school year was very successful in terms of academics, arts and athletics, and although  classes ended and commencement conducted on May 15, the grand finale of the year comes this week as three local athletic teams wind up their seasons in state tournament action.

The CMCS (Cedar Mountain, Comfrey and Springfield) girls track team participated in the Minnesota State High School League (MSHSL) state tournament at Hamline University June 5 and 6.  The 4x400m relay team — Amy Davis, and Vishe Raab of Springfield, Irene Anderson of Morgan, and Paige Richert of Comfrey, placed fifth in state competition with a time of 4:06.17.   Anderson placed sixth in the 100m hurdles. 

 The high school Tiger golf team —  Carissa Evers, Shylyn Lothert, Jena Roiger,  Lexy Wenisch Callie Wersal and Makenna Winkelmann — participated in the MSHSL golf tournament at Becker Tuesday.  The girls were scheduled to tee off at noon, two hours after this newspaper went to press — too late to report results. 

The Tiger high school varsity baseball team claimed the Section 3A championship and earned a trip to the state baseball tournament with their 3-0 victory over Adrian the evening of June 4. The Tigers are scheduled to participate in the MSHSL Class A baseball tournament and will play Kimball Area High School at 3:00 Thursday at the Mini Met in Jordan.
