This week begins a busy stretch of postseason action over the next few weeks for the Saints’ fall sports teams.
The girls tennis team, which began Section 2AA play last week, continues this week with team play on Tuesday at Gustavus Adolphus College and then shifts gears into singles/doubles action two days later, also at Gustavus.
The Saints’ girls soccer team earned the #3 seed in the Section 2AA tourney and gets to open playoff action at home. If the girls win their playoff opener they would play on Thursday against either #2 Mankato West or #7 New Ulm.
The Saints’ boys soccer team was awarded the #2 seed in Section 2A and gets a home game to start the playoffs on Thursday evening and a win there would give them another home playoff game.
The Saints swimming & diving team will compete in the Section 1A True Team Meet on Saturday, which is a good tune up for the Section 1A Meet, which begins on November 9 in Rochester.
