Cold, cold, cold

Two varsity events scheduled for today are being affected by the cold weather.

The Mainstreeters baseball team's game against Paynesville on the home diamond is postponed to next Monday (April 21). The Mainstreeters softball team's game at Wadena-Deer Creek has been cancelled, and no make-up date has been set.

The home track and field meet for Tuesday has been postponed. No make-up date has been announced.

For now here's the Tuesday schedule: boys' and girls' golf will have meets at Greystone Golf Course and also in Melrose during the day; the varsity baseball team hosts Atwater-Cosmos-Grove City at 5 p.m., while the varsity softball team travels to Grove City for a 5 p.m. game against A-C-GC. 

**Update: and just like that, in almost the blink of an eye, Tuesday's action is whittled down to just a pair of junior high softball games at home. The golf, baseball and softball varsity teams have their games/meets postponed.
