On the first hole of sudden death, Warzecha drained his 10-foot putt for par while Hanstad missed his from six feet. Alexandria won the invitational with a combined score of three over par.

MINNEAPOLIS -- Brian Pieh's performance off the mound Saturday at the Metrodome was much more successful than many of the Minnesota Twins hurlers this season. Pieh entered in relief with one out in the fourth inning and allowed just one hit the rest of the way as New London-Spicer defeated Pipestone 6-1 in a non-conference game. NLS (6-2) scored twice in the first inning and never trailed. Wildcats starter Michael Danielson also pitched well, allowing three hits and one run over 31/3 innings, but didn't go the necessary four full innings to be credited with the win.
The Ridgewater College Warriors are scheduled to play a baseball doubleheader today with Dakota County in Willmar. The twinbill was originally scheduled for Saturday, but was rained out and moved to today. Ridgewater originally was scheduled to play St. Cloud State JV today, but that doubleheader has been cancelled. Also, the Warriors are scheduled to play Minnesota West Tuesday in Worthington in a doubleheader from Sunday's rainout. If today's game is rained out, the Warriors will host Dakota County on Tuesday and cancel the Minnesota West games.
Barring inclement weather, the Willmar Cardinals girls' golf team is scheduled to host both a Central Lakes Conference meet and a 16-team invitational beginning at 9:30 a.m. today. All the teams compete together, with the Central Lakes Conference team scores counting as a conference meet and those teams, plus Albany, Dassel-Cokato, Hutchinson, Litchfield, Marshall, New London-Spicer and Robbinsdale Armstrong will compete in an invitational meet.
Athletic directors or their representatives are urged to fill out the form sent to each school with any postponed or cancelled sporting events each day and fax back to (329) 235-1300. Please include any makeup dates. E-mail information to: firstname.lastname@example.org .
