Just saw this - White wins pole vault event at Paynesville track and field meet

At the eight-team Paynesville Invitational on Tuesday this week, senior Whitney White emerged as champion of the Pole Vault event with a best vault of 8 feet, 1/2 inch.

The Jaguars track and field teams are next in action with a home invitational, next Tuesday beginning at 4:00 p.m. Other teams included are Benson, Eden Valley-Watkins, Holdingford, New London-Spicer, Paynesville Area, Saint Cloud Christian, and Saint John's Prep.

Tonight (Thursday), the Jaguars fastpitch team travels to Browerville searching for their first win of the season. It's a must-win situation, as they need to knock off the Tigers to help out with sub-section seeding. It will be the season opener for Browerville, while the Jaguars enter the contest 0-2.

I had some incorrect information posted earlier, saying that the Jaguars baseball team will host Browerville/Eagle Valley on Friday this week. In fact, the Browerville/Eagle Valley baseball pairing has dissolved, and each school is fielding its own baseball team.

The Browerville Tigers, who will visit Regal on Friday to face our Jaguars, are coached by Matt Middendorf. Amateur baseball fans recognize that name as the Elrosa Saints' star shortstop for the past few years.

Middendorf's Tigers are 2-0 heading into their home game with Osakis tonight. They beat Eagle Valley 9-0 on April 8 and Pierz 12-3 on April 12.
