One non-conference loss is the difference between Caledonia baseball being on a super-large win streak and a simply a nice win streak. Brad Augedahl’s Warriors entered the week of May
17 coming off a doubleheader sweep of Cotter. They added three more wins to streak to five. Like their seven-game win streak earlier in the year (where Caledonia scored 10 runs in six of the games), offensive firepower propelled the ship. A game versus Lewiston-Altura was a key league match-up. The Warriors (7-1, 9-2) and Cardinals (8-1, 8-3) both entered with just one TRC loss. Caledonia did big work early. Jake Staggemeyer initiated the offense with a first inning three-run home run (his second of the year). Caledonia scored eight in the frame and cruised to a 13-3 win in five. The Warrior’s second baseman, Staggemeyer, had a perfect day at the plate (3-3, HR, 3 RBI, R), as did Ayden Goetzinger (3-3, RBI, 2 R) and Brady Augedahl (2-2, 2 RBI, R). Thane Meiners (3-4, RBI, 3 R, 4 IP, 6 H, 3 R, 1 ER, 6 BB, 5 K) did double-duty in collecting the win on the mound. Austin Klug (2-3, RBI, 2 R), Casey Schultz (1-2, 2 RBI, R), and Andrew Kunelius (1-2, RBI, 2 R) helped. Two nights later, fellow TRC foe Rushford-Peterson also fell in a shortened game. The final was 12-0 in five innings. Devin Vonderohe (2-3, RBI, 3 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 0 BB, 2 K, Win) and B-Augedahl (2 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 0 BB, 2 K, No Decision) combined to pitch a five-inning no hitter. They were one error away from a perfect game, facing just 16 Trojan batters. Meiners (4-4, RBI, 4 R) and Staggemeyer (2-4, 4 RBI) each drove in four runs. Klug (1-2, 2B, RBI, 3 R), Kunelius (2-3, RBI), Eli Ranzenberger (1-2, 2 R), Schultz (1-4, 2 RBI, R), and Goetzinger (1-2, 2 R) also got in on the attack. The Trojans fell to 2-10, 4-11. Team Cal ended its week hosting Viroqua, Wis. For the third time in as many games, the contest didn’t go seven innings. The Warriors prevailed 13-3 in six. Viroqua actually led 3-0 after 1 ½ innings and it was tied 3-3 after three, but Caledonia exploded for a nine-run fourth. Klug (3-5, 2B, HR, 3 RBI, 2 R) launched his “Journal 11” leading fourth home run. Meiners (3-5, RBI, 3 R), Staggemeyer (2-3, 2B, R), Goetzinger (2-3, 2B, 2 RBI, 2 R), Kunelius (1-4, 2B, 2 RBI, R), Schultz (1-3, RBI, R), Vonderohe (1-3, RBI, R) and Ranzenberger (1-1, RBI, R) made it a team effort. Tristan Augedahl (5 IP, 3 H, 3 R, 2 ER, 3 BB, 5 K) collected the win. He didn’t surrender a hit or run after Viroqua’s three-run first. The victories improved Caledonia’s records to 9-1, 12-2. Ranked #7 in AA, they lead L-A (9-2, 9-5) and La Crescent/Hokah (4-2, 4-3), which has been down per COVID, in the TRC East. The Warriors and TRC-West leading PEM (10-1, 12-1) are the only double-digit win, one-loss teams in the league.
Highlights Gopher Softball’s Week
Chatfield softball had a week with two key TRC West match-ups. Versus PEM on Tuesday the 11th, the Bulldogs (8-2, 10-2) seemed primed for a rare win over Chatfield (6-1, 8-2) in a game of quality teams. PEM led 2-0 heading to Chatfield’s bottom of seven. But Gopher Devann Clemens reached on a dropped third strike. Kara Goetzinger then doubled. Jaiden Zimmerman singled, scoring Clemens, making it a 2-1 game. On a 0-1 count, junior catcher Peyton Berg performed the ultra-rare high school feat. She hit a walk-off three-run home run to propel Jerry Chase’s group to victory, 4-2! One-thru-three hitters, Goetzinger (2-4, 2B, R), Zimmerman (4-4, RBI, R), and Berg (2-4, HR #3, 3 RBI, R), had eight of Chatfield’s 11 hits. Brynn Irish (2-3) added two singles. Claire Springer (7 IP, 5 H, 2 R, 1 ER, 2 BB, 4 K) collected the win. The Bulldogs scored one in the second (walk, single, ground-out, passed-ball) and one in the sixth (single, stolen base, double), or each time they got a lead-off runner on base. Chatfield (7-1, 9-2) then trekked to St. Charles (8-2, 13-2) for an even bigger TRC-West match-up. It was a pitcher’s duel. In 15 of the 16 half innings, the teams sent either three or four to the plate. Chatfield never got a runner past first base. St. Charles had runners in scoring position in the fourth, fifth, and sixth innings, but came away empty. In the eighth, the Saints’ winning run plated because of an error, a stolen base, and another error. St. Charles prevailed 1-0. Brenna Koeppel pitched a two-hit shut-out (8 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 0 BB, 11 K, Win). Springer (7 2/3 IP, 4 H, 1 R, 0 ER, 0 BB, 6 K, Loss) didn’t give up an earned run in taking the loss. It was the Saints’ ninth straight win. The Gophers rebounded with a Saturday non-conference win over Blooming Prairie. The final was 6-2. Berg (3-4, HR, 2 RBI, R) hit her Journal 11 leading fourth home run. Sydney Allen (2-4, HR, RBI, R) hit her first home run. Goetzinger (2-4, 2B, 2 R) also had multiple hits while pitching multiple innings (2 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 3 BB, 4 K, No Decision). Zimmerman (1-4, 2B, RBI, R, 5 IP, 3 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 3 BB, 5 K) collected the win, surrendering both runs on a Bobbie Bruns third inning 2-run homer, which put BP ahead 2-1. Chatfield scored two in the fifth to re-take the lead. The TRC-West is a three-team race; St. Charles (9-2, 14-2), Chatfield (7-2, 10-3), and PEM (8-3, 11-3). PEM and Cotter beat SC. SC and Cotter beat Chatfield. Cotter, St. Charles, and Chatfield beat PEM. The Gophers have games with SC and PEM. Cotter (9-0, 11-1) leads the East.
Falcon Softball Rides Peters to Inter-County Wins
FC/L softball has struggled for wins this season, but over back-to-back nights, they got two “W’s” versus inter-county squads. On Monday, the Falcons trekked to Mabel. Senior Addie Peters was the story. FC/L’s pitcher struck out 15 Cougar batters in pitching a shut-out (7 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 0 BB, 15 K). Peters (3-4, 2B, RBI, R) also had a good day at the plate as John O’Connor’s team posted a 7-0 win. Lauren Mensink (1-4, 2B, RBI, R), Regan Hanson (1-3, RBI), Addison Schoepski (1-4, RBI, R), and Abby Bothun (1-2, R) also had key hits for FC/L. Molly Lee (2-3, 2B) had both of Mabel-Canton’s knocks. The Cougars were down starting pitcher Emily Carolan. They fall to 6-6, 8-7. A night later, things were tense for the Falcons in Rushford. FCL led 3-0 after 4 ½ innings only for R-P to tie it with a 3-run fifth. From there, R-P threatened in the sixth (two on, no out) and FCL threatened in the eighth (bases loaded, no out), but neither scored. Finally in the tenth frame with it tied 3-3, Falcons K.J. Corson and Regan Hanson led off with back-to-back doubles, making it 4-3. A couple errors and an Addison Schoepski 2-run single made it 7-3 Falcons. R-P got one in their tenth, but the tying run never came to plate. FCL posted the 10-inning win by a final of 7-5. Peters (10 IP, 9 H, 4 R, 3 ER, 0 BB, 5 K, Win) picked up the win going all 10 innings, running her two-day total to 17 innings without a walk. Hanson (3-5, two 2B, RBI, R), Corson (2-5, 2B, R), Bothun (2-5, R), Schoepski (1-5, 2 RBI) and Mensink (1-4, 2 R) helped the cause. Paige Dailey (3-4) had three hits for R-P. Ellie Ekern (1-4 3B, 2 RBI, R), Isabelle Olson (1-4, 2B, R), and Emarie Jacobson (1-4, R, 7 IP, 7 H, 3 R, 3 ER, 3 BB, 4 K, No Decision) also aided the R-P cause. The Trojans were trying to end a 10-game losing streak.
Twelve Miles of Track/Field Separation
On a Thursday night, four of the five track and field programs covered by the Journal all convened within 12 miles of each other. GMLOKS and Caledonia/SG competed in Eyota. LFCMC and Chatfield did so in Elgin. For those squads participating, they ran their last runs before True Team meets. At the D-E Invite, it was all GMLOKS. The girls (167) bested nearest foe St. Charles (51) while the boys (122) also topped the Saints (81). Cal/SG and D-E also competed. Aaron Thauwald’s GMLOKS girls won 15 of 18 events (all but the 1,600, High Jump, and Long Jump).

Baseball Things Center Around Mabel-Canton
Baseball events centered on Mabel-Canton the week of May 10. The Cougars played two inter-county foes and participated in two walk-offs wins. First, M-C trekked to Preston to face FC/L. The key inning was the fourth, where Josh Jones’ group scored five runs to turn a 4-3 lead into a 9-3 advantage. The Falcons prevailed 12-5. Wilson Storhoff (4-4, RBI, 2 R) was perfect at the plate. Gunner Benson (2-4, 3B, RBI, 2 R), Cooper Ferrie (1-4, 2B, 3 RBI, R), Ty Sexton (2-4, RBI, R), Jordan Peterson (1-3, 2 R), Dillon O’Connor (1-2, RBI, R), and Stephan Schultz (1-4, 2 R) added to the FC offensive explosion. Garrett Gossman (4 2/3 IP, 5 H, 3 R, 2 ER, 4 BB, 2 K) collected the win. Cayden Tollefsrud (2-3, RBI, R), Alex Arneson (2-4), Randy Gerard (1-4, 2 RBI), and Jack Arneson (1-3, 2 R) did work for the Cougars. M-C then hosted a doubleheader with GMLOK. In game one, the Cougars trailed 2-1 heading to the bottom of fifth (five inning game). Tollefsrud and Jack Arneson led off with singles to tie the score at 2-2. Arneson was then sacrificed to third. Gerard authored a game-winning RBI-single. M-C won in walk-off style, 3-2. Jack Arneson (2-3, RBI, R), Gerard (1-3, RBI), Robert Michels (1-2, 2B, R), Tollefsrud (1-3, R, 5 IP, 5 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 0 BB, 6 K, Win), and Tyler Larson (1-2, RBI) led the cause. Dustin Copley (1-2, 2B, RBI, R), Lucas Heusinkveld (1-2, R, 4 IP, 7 H, 3 R, 3 ER, 0 BB, 2 K, Loss), and Connor Munson (1-2, RBI) did work for Dakotah Rostad’s group. In game two, pitchers Tollefsrud and Heusinkveld continued to work. M-C led 2-1 before the Bulldogs had a four-run fourth to lead 5-2. Gavin Sweeney had a 2-run triple in the inning. The Bulldogs split the deuce courtesy of a 5-2 win (five innings). Copley (2-2, 3B, 2 R), Sweeney (1-2, 3B, 2 RBI, R), Munson (1-2, R), Heusinkveld (3 2/3 IP, 5 H, 2 R, 1 ER, 0 BB, 1 K, No Decision), and Sam Snitker (1 1/3 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 1 BB, 2 K, Win) did key work for GMLOK. Gerard (1-2, 2B, 2 RBI), Tollefsrud (1-3, R, 2 2/3 IP, 4 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 2 BB, 3 K, No Decision), T-Larson (1-1, 2B), and Jack Arneson (1-2, R) paced the Cougars. M-C ended its week finishing a game suspended by rain earlier in the year. Versus AC/G-E, the Knights tied things 1-1 in the fifth. In an extra inning (sixth), Jack Arneson walked to lead-off the first extra inning (sixth), stolen second, and made third on sacrifice bunt. A Gerard suicide squeeze single then scored Arneson for the game-winning run. M-C again won via Gerard walk-off, 2-1. Jack Arneson (0-1, 2 R) and Gerard (2-3, RBI) supplied the offense. Owen Underbakke (6 IP, 6 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 2 BB, 7 K) got the win. AC/G-E took game one of the doubleheader 4-3. After a 0-6 start, M-C (5-8, 5-9) has won five of eight games.

Chatfield baseball fell 2-0 to PEM in a key TRC-West match-up. The Bulldogs (10-1, 12-2) have spearheaded the division. Grace Privet pitched a five-inning one hitter as Cal/SG softball beat L-A 13-0. The “no-no” bid was ended with two outs in the fifth. The Warriors had six doubles in the contest. Paige Klug hit a home run as C/SG beat R-P 9-4. Lily Hughes struck 14 as GMLOK softball avenged a loss, beating Southland 5-3. Hughes then hit her third home run in a 6-1 loss to PEM. The Bulldogs are 8-3, 10-4.

I-Griffin was a master on the mound, but the Lion bats were hitless for three innings and scoreless for the first four frames. Griffin got 16 of the 21 outs by strikeout, walked only one, allowed no earned runs and only four hits and was backed by a one-error defense. But two of those hits, a sacrifice fly and that lone Lion error came together as AC/GE scored the game’s first run in the fourth inning. That 1-0 score held until a Jahnke single, an error, and a hit batter set up C-Griffins’ 2-RBI hit with two outs in the fifth. Grove finally led 2-1.
