This fall might the last go-around for football conferences in the current format. Not because the conference is going away, but because of a change in how the Minnesota State High School League will have its members schedule games.
Legacy Christian Academy senior Renee Scheil was looking forward to her final softball season, anchoring the infield at shortstop. That quickly came to an end on a stolen-base attempt in the top of the first inning of the first game of the season. A perfect throw from senior catcher Kate McLaughlin put the ball in front of the Heritage Christian Academy base runner whose cleat caught Scheil’s glove and broke her wrist inside the glove.
