RAYMOND -- Kyle Knott singled, doubled and homered to drive the Raymond offense as the Rockets opened the town-team season at Lilleberg Field with an 11-1 win over Rosen in eight innings Friday.

FERGUS FALLS -- Tyler Horning had three hits, including his third home run of the spring, and Troy Ditterich hurled a complete game Thursday to help Willmar beat Fergus Falls 10-1 in the Central Lakes Conference.

BENSON -- Katie Razink gave up only four hits and one run as Benson/Hancock beat Kerkhoven-Murdock-Sunburg 7-1 in non-conference softball Thursday. The players braved the cold winds in Benson, but also had to put up with noise from construction at the softball field. Footings for new dugouts had been excavated and a crew was pouring cement. It didn't affect Razink, who withstood four errors and four walks for the win. Four Benson/Hancock players had two hits each, led by Jenny Noordmans, who went 2-for-3 with two RBI.
