Tom's Pick: This week's top area prep events


Well, here we go again.

It’s snowing right now and while there are a whole bunch of scheduled outdoor events in the area prep world this week, the chance that some of them will take place is iffy at best.

Hyping anything wholeheartedly seems like an effort in futility. Just about everything scheduled for Monday and Tuesday already has been postponed. And if it hasn’t, it probably should be.

Aiming for something Thursday, let’s try Sauk Rapids at St. Cloud Apollo softball. The game, if it happens, is scheduled for 5 p.m.

Sauk Rapids is coached by Ben Miller, who was the Storm’s coach in the 1980s and ’90s and has returned to lead the team.

Sauk Rapids’ roster posted on the Minnesota State High School League website has nine seniors and four juniors on the varsity roster. If the Storm play on what would be their opener Thursday, it would have been their fifth regular-season game under their original schedule.

Apollo is coached by Megan Pederson.

Cross your fingers about this one happening.
