The sun continued shining and some teams resumed play.

But the weatherman was still holding his own against local teams Tuesday.

Gone were the baseball game at Moorhead and the home softball game with Coleraine, both to be rescheduled later this year.

Cancelled was the girls JV golf meet at Crookston.

On as scheduled were the home tennis meet with Perham and the varsity track meet at Grand Rapids.

Also still on were the JV track teams appearance at the Pequot Lakes Invitational and today's varsity boys golf tournament at the Pines in Nisswa and the JV meet at nearby Deacon's Lodge.

The boys have added a meet Saturday at The Vintage at Staples which will be the final warm-up for the Bemidji Invitational May 5.

The girls have added a May 22 meet at Fox Hollow at Rogers, also to replace a previous cancellation.

Chances appear brighter for Thursday when the baseball team hosts Red River in a 4 p.m. twin bill, the softball team entertains Moorhead at 4:30 and Grand Rapids at 6:15, the tennis team plays at the Northwest Quad at Crookston and the girls golf team competes at Eagle Ridge at the Coleraine Invitational.

The Grand Rapids softball game Thursday is a replay of Monday's postponement.

Golfers ready

The golf team is rested and ready for today's return to the links.

Unfortunately it comes at a course that has seldom been favorable for Bemidji.

"But we badly need to get out and play," said Coach Eric Niskanen, "and we welcome the challenge today."

The team has had an opportunity to get in a challenge round with two changes set for today.

Ben Moen, Joe Welle, Kevin Larson and Tanner Niskanen, who opened at the Alexandria meet, will be joined by Rylee Curb and Josh Ehrhorn.

Moen led the opening tournament with an 80 while Welle hit 87, Larson 88 and Niskanen 91.

Headed to Deacon's Lodge will be Taylor Arndt, Derek Buckanaga, Kaleb Hanson, Jordan Manick and Steve Heller, Arndt and Buckanaga making their first appearances.

Hanson shot 89, Heller 93 and Manick 94 in the JV opener at Detroit Lakes.
