In spite of the Gasconade County R-2 School District suspending classes until April 6, two Owensville High School spring sports teams got good news recently from the Missouri State High School Activities Association (MSHSAA).
Matt Candrl’s OHS Track and Field team along with Jordan Palmer’s Dutchgirl soccer team will have the luxury of hosting their respective district tournaments either on the track or on the pitch at Dutchmen Field.
Tentatively scheduled for Saturday, May 16, Dutchmen Field will play host to 11 schools.
They include Ava’s Bears, Cuba’s Wildcats, Eldon’s Mustangs, Houston’s Tigers, Liberty’s (Mountain View) Eagles, Mountain Grove’s Panthers, School of the Osage’s Indians, Salem’s Tigers, St. James’ Tigers, Versailles’ Tigers and Willow Springs’ Bears.
One team in Buffalo’s Bison was moved from Class 3, District 5 last spring to Class 3, District 7 this year.
Ava made the move this spring into district five from district six.
Initially informed that St. James High School would be hosting the MSHSAA Class 2, District 8 Girls Soccer Tournament.
Teams competing in the tournament along with the host Dutchgirls and St. James include Sullivan’s Lady Eagles and St. Clair’s Lady Bulldogs.
Owensville will be looking for it’s first district title in the short history of their program.
Revenge will also be on their minds following a 3-1 championship game loss to St. Clair at Sullivan last spring.
While Tyler Ahring’s Owensville Dutchmen baseball team and Nathan Cabot’s OHS golf squad may not be hosting their district tournaments, they will still be fairly close to home.
In the case of Ahring’s boys of spring, Bank of Sullivan Ball Park at Sullivan High School will host the MSHSAA Class 4, District 4 Baseball Tournament scheduled to take place in mid-May.
Competing along with the host Eagles and Dutchmen include Pacific’s Indians, St. Francis Borgia’s Knights, Union’s Wildcats and St. Clair.
Cabot’s golfers will see a totally new set of teams during the MSHSAA Class 3, District 2 Tournament scheduled to be hosted by Borgia at Wolf Hollow Golf Course in Labadie.
Teams scheduled to compete against the host Knights and Dutchmen include De Soto’s Dragons, Festus’ Tigers, Hillsboro’s Hawks, Pacific, Potosi’s Trojans, St. Clair, Sullivan, Union and Windsor’s (Imperial) Owls.
Farmington High School was selected to host the sectional tournament.
Hopefully spring sports will commence next month.
