Rushford-Peterson/Houston track team participated in two meets last week with mixed results.



  • In an off and on season, so far for Rushford-Peterson Trojans, R-P managed an away game loss this week, followed immediately by an away game win.

     
  • Each match that the Trojan girls have had this season, has brought the score closer to beating their opponent. In this match, R-P lost out to Lanesboro by only 50 strokes. Though they remain winless, competition has been heating up.



     
  • After five innings, the win belonged to Plainview-Elgin-Millville, when the score hit 21 runs to three in the April 21 loss.



     
  • Agrimson, Carlson, Culhane again top contenders

    R-P/H competed last Friday at the La Crescent Booster Club Track and Field Invitational, showcasing their superior talent all across the board. While this meet was not a team competition, R-P/H competitors squared off against fierce competition, specifically from Century athletes.



     
  • While last week’s weather was looking up, the same couldn’t be said for the Trojans as they faced loss after loss. Though the heart was there, keeping the opponents within a few runs, R-P couldn’t pull off a win.



     
  • R-P girls have been busy this week, playing six games in the warm weather. Even though there were several close games, the Trojans couldn’t pull out a win, and start the season 0-6.



     
  • Rushford-Peterson/Houston track team participated in two meets last week with mixed results.

  • R-P/H track team faced big schools and their toughest competitors at last Friday’s invitational at PEM. “It was like a section meet,” commented Coach Gary Wade. “Everyone we saw, we’ll face again at the qualifying meet.” The competition was fierce and despite facing some of the biggest schools, both boys and girls had some standout victories.



     
  • Trojan boys struggled in their first game of the season as they lost out to La Crescent 1-4.



     
  • Field events backbone of R-P/H win

    Rushford-Peterson/Houston track team began their season with wins for both girls and boys events. Facing five other teams, R-P/H came out on top.

     
  • Last year, the R-P baseball team had some strong moments. But, more often than not, they fell at the hands of bigger schools. According to head coach Dan Mlsna, the early spring should help baseball players achieve the potential that Mlsna knows they are capable of.



     
  • The 2014 season was fairly strong for the Rushford-Peterson/Houston track team.

     
  • Who needs seniors when you have a strong junior core? The Rushford-Peterson softball team finds themselves void of seniors, continuing the trend from the girls basketball team this year and, with the exception of Bailey Holien, from R-P volleyball last fall.
