Kelsey Ihns was spectacular on Wednesday, helping the East Ridge softball team sweep White Bear Lake. East Ridge beat White Bear Lake 4-0 and 2-1 in the Suburban East Conference doubleheader. Ihns, a junior starting pitcher, won both games to improve to 7-4 on the year. In the 4-0 win in the opener, Ihns threw a complete-game no-hitter. In game two, Ihns allowed just one run on five hits, while striking out 15. In the 4-0 win, East Ridge (9-8; 9-8 SEC) scored all four of its runs in the first inning and rode Ihns to the win.

One of the men was gone by the time police arrived, but the other man, a North St.
I'll keep this brief. When you're done reading this you'll know why. For student-athletes, coaches and administrators it's been a rough spring. The historically foul weather has wreaked havoc with spring sports. The sporadic schedule has made things tough on sports reporters, too. I've received a number of concerns from readers wondering why there hasn't been much coverage of their favorite team or sport in recent weeks. One reason is, because of the bad weather, we went without high school sporting events for an unusual number of weeks.

Currently, 114 schools in Minnesota have trapshooting clubs -- including East Ridge and Woodbury high schools -- and roughly 3,400 kids are participating in the sport. Last week it was deemed trapshooting will have the backing of the Minnesota State High School League in 2014.
