The Chatfield girls softball team split a pair of games last week, losing to Cotter on Thursday, 12-3, and downing Rushford-Peterson 6-1, on Monday.  With the split last week the girls are now 6-2 on the season, and the same in the Three Rivers Conference.  This week the gals have four games: Tuesday (home with Fillmore Central/Lanesboro), Wednesday (at Lewiston-Altura), Thursday (at Spring Grove, vs. SG/Caledonia), and Friday (St. Charles home).

  • The Chatfield girls 4x100 and 4x200 relay teams took firsts at the Stewartville Tiger Relays last week.  The team of Autum Erickson, Maddy Kammer, Danielle Kramer and Mariah Bell won the 400 meter relay with a time of :52.67.  In the 800 meter relay, Kammer and Bell switched positions and had a winning time of 1:50.76.

     
  • Stocking caps, hooded sweatshirts and gloves (mittens) were the order of the day when the Chatfield Gopher golf team hosted Kingsland last Friday.

  • The Chatfield baseball team was shutout for the second game in a row, losing 7-0 to Cotter.  And they were almost no-hit again.  “Overall, right now, we’re not playing real good baseball,” said coach Brian Baum.  “We hope to correct it starting this week,” he added.  “We have eight games in the next two weeks, four this week.”
