Lake for the first official workouts of the spring. Golf and baseball begin full-team practices next Monday. Coaches throughout Southern Minnesota are hoping 2019 doesn’t repeat the spring of 2018, when snow covered fields through much of April, making the schedule essentially a one-month sprint to the postseason.
