Tied at seven at halftime, Chanhassen got a pair of goals from Lexi Walstad, but the Benilde-St. Margaret duo of Sydney Liebl and Allie Coughlin were just a bit better, leading the Red Knights to a 13-11 win on Thursday.
Chanhassen's offense was quiet Thursday. Luckily, one big hit, a three-run homer from senior Chad Clute, and a dominating pitching performance from sophomore Jordan Bonk, was enough for the seventh win in a row for the Storm Baseball team.
Chaska saw a three-run lead escape late in the game, but clutch hitting and some stellar defense down the stretch allowed the Hawks Softball team to win its third straight game in a 9-6 decision over St. Paul Como Park April 22.
Athletes were greeted Tuesday with gusty winds pushing runners back on the homestretch. Occasional snow flakes and cold temperatures were also in play. Yet athletes persevered at Minnetonka High School's Joe Lane Invitational.
