Trevor Plouffe has developed into a solid major league third baseman. Trevor was drafted in 2004 after an All-American high school career, chosen in the first round (20th overall) by the Twins as a shortstop. Through the years as he learned his craft in the minors, he was occasionally called up to the Twins when someone was injured. But he would bounce around, playing every position — from short to third, second, first, and even a stint in the outfield.

  • Chatfield’s high school baseball team finished the season with a 14-8 record, 12-6 in the Three Rivers Conference-West Division, good for a tie for first.

     
  • Kammer, Erickson and 4x100 relay  ‘medal’ at state track championships

    The first goal at the Minnesota State Track Meet is to make the finals.  You make the finals and you’re assured a spot on the podium (a medal for placing first through ninth), as long as you finish the race.

     
  • Four Chatfield girls qualify for state track meet

    CHS senior Maddy Kammer won the 200 meter dash (:25.84) at the recently held Section 1A track meet, took second in the 400 meter dash (:59.14) and anchored the winning 4x100 (:49.88) relay team, to qualify for the state track meet in three events.  Junior Autum Erickson will be participating in two events at the state meet, the 400 relay (running second) and the 100 meter dash, where she finished second, with a time of :12.68.  The other members of that gold medal relay team are sophomore Mariah Bell (lead off) and junior Danielle Kramer (third leg).

     
  • The Chatfield Gopher softball team won the 1A East Sub-section tournament with a 6-5 win over Wabasha-Kellogg, but then suffered a pair of one run losses in the 1A Section tournament to Hayfield, 5-4 and Fillmore Central/Lanesboro, 1-0, in 11 innings.

     
  • Season ends for CHS baseball  team with two losses to FC/L

    In the past week, or so, the Chatfield Gopher baseball team lost a pair of games to Fillmore Central/Lanesboro, 4-2 and 3-0, ending their 2015 season with a record of 14-8.  Sandwiched in between those two losses to the Falcons was a win over Wabasha-Kellogg (6-3).

     
  • CHS tracksters shine at Class 1A Sub-section meet

    Maddy Kammer (200m, :26.47; 400m,1:01.12), Karen Gomez-Ruiz (1600m, 5:40.92) and the girls 4x100 relay (Autum Erickson, Danielle Kramer, Maddy Kammer, Mariah Bell, :50.94) all took firsts at the 1A Sub-section 1 meet, held in Caledonia last Thursday.  All of them and others qualified for the upcoming Section 1A meet that will be held in Dodge Center (Triton H.S.) Tuesday and Thursday, May 26 and 28.

     
  • CHS nine battles way to sub-section championship game

    If you’re a baseball fan, you would have loved the opportunity to view, not one, not two, but five baseball games at Molly Baum Field in Chatfield, Saturday and Monday, of the Memorial Day weekend.

     
  • Lady Gophers in sub-section championship game

    The #1 seeded Chatfield softball team (18-4) downed Goodhue in a 1A East semi-final game, 10-1, Wednesday,  and moved into the championship game against Wabasha-Kellogg (14-7). That game was played Friday afternoon in Peterson after this issue of The Chatfield News went to press. W-K, seeded #3, upset #2 Fillmore Central/Lanesboro, 4-1, to also make it into the championship game.

     
  • This past week the Chatfield golfers participated in the Three Rivers Conference meet at Eastwood Golf Club, Rochester.  Because of inclement weather conditions, the scoring for the conference meet was changed.  Not all of the golfers played the same holes, because of a shotgun start.  Thus, the scoring was based on the par score for those nine holes.

     
  • A pair of losses to Dover-Eyota (3-2, 4-2) last week probably cost the Chatfield Gopher baseball team the outright championship in the Three Rivers Conference-West Division.  Instead, a win over Southland (5-0) on Friday gave the Gophers (12-6, 12-6) at least a tie for the West crown.  St. Charles played Plainview-Elgin-Millville this past Monday.  A win for St. Charles (11-6, 13-6) would mean a tie between the Saints and the Gophers.  A Bulldog (3-14, 3-15) win would give Chatfield the trophy.

     
  • Lady Gophers pick up four wins last week

    Last Tuesday the Chatfield Gopher softball team beat Dover-Eyota, 8-3 and 11-1 (5 innings) and Friday they took another double-header from Southland, 10-0 (5 innings) and 14-0 (5 innings).

     
  • Five CHS athletes earn All-TRC in track
    The Chatfield girls placed sixth with 70 team points and the boys placed 10th with 36 points in the Three Rivers Conference meet. Perennial powerhouse Plainview-Elgin-Millville took top honors in both the girls and boys competition.  
  • The Chatfield softball team started the week with a pair of wins over GMLOK (14-4, 10-0) and ended the week with a pair of wins over Concordia Academy (10-0) and Henry Sibley (12-2) in the Stewartville Tournament.  With the four wins the gals are now 10-4 in Three Rivers Conference play and 12-4, overall.  The Lady Gophers are one game ahead of Wabasha-Kellogg (9-5) in the TRC-West Division.
