Softball: Elks scheduled to meet Rebels in annual Youth Night game Friday evening

The Elk River softball team will host its annual Youth Night Under the Lights game Friday against Champlin Park if the Orono Park field is playable by then, said coach Stacy Sheetz.

The Elks, who have not played a game yet due to the wintry April, are scheduled to meet the Rebels at 7:30 p.m.

Prior to the varsity game, a freshman game is slated for 4:15 p.m., a B squad game at 5 p.m. and a junior varsity game at 6 p.m.

The evening also includes drawings for prizes, and team photos to be autographed by players.

“It’s a great atmosphere with live game announcing, music, and attendance participation,” states a press release from Elk River Softball Booster Club.

The Elks will open at  home Thursday against Hopkins at the high school field if it is playable.
