In the next week, as we finish out our regular season, we will begin to prepare for conference, where we face up against our heaviest competition: Minnetonka. We are coming in hot and ready to shake their record!” ”

Fall sports are at their height during the last week of September, and each team is boasting their share of wins and losses from the season. For many teams, this marks the middle of the fall season, and a perfect time to reflect on the happenings thus far and expectations for the upcoming month.

The boys’ soccer team’s next game is Monday the 23rd versus Blake at Pesonen stadium; the JV game begins at 5 p.m., and varsity will begin at 7 p.m. The teams will be traveling the rest of the week, with games this Thursday, Friday, and Saturday as well. Girls’ soccer has a similarly busy week, with a game in Rockford on Tuesday the 24th, and a home game this Thursday versus Delano, where the girls’ team will be honoring the seniors and parents.

Orono’s volleyball team is off to a great start, especially in their recent win against Delano. Home game attendance has been at an all time high, even with a change in the coaching staff for the 2019 season. This week, they play in Waconia at 7 p.m. on Thursday. Girls’ swim and dive team has a meet this Tuesday in Watertown, and at 6 p.m. on Thursday, the team will be back in the Orono pool for the home meet.

“It’s been a super fun season with all the girls and great new coaches,” junior volleyball player Jordan Arends said.

Cross country takes a week off of meets to focus on intensified training; their next meet is October 3rd at Litchfield, with the conference race only a few weeks out.  Girls’ tennis has a busy week ahead of them, with a match every day.

Last week, we matched up against Litchfield, a team that has been unbeatable in previous years—in fact, one that we lost to twice last year. Our team came in strong and crushed Litch five to two. In the next week, as we finish out our regular season, we will begin to prepare for conference, where we face up against our heaviest competition: Minnetonka. We are coming in hot and ready to shake their record!” senior Tennis captain Ellie Melander said.  

Finish out the week at the football game this Friday night at 7 p.m., under the lights of St. Louis Park’s Oriole Stadium.
