Last Monday the GMLOK softball team traveled to Caledonia to take on the Spring Grove/Caledonia team in the first round of the 1AA East sub-section tournament. A win for the gals would put them into the sub-section semi-finals on Wednesday, and the double-elimination portion of the tournament. A loss on Monday and the team's season would be over.
