Friday’s gymnastics meet postponed

    The New Prague at Northfield gymnastics meet scheduled for Friday, Dec. 14, has been postponed due to the death of New Prague coach Matt Shetka.
    Shetka, 54, died of an apparent heart attack Sunday, Dec. 9, while shoveling snow in front of his home. His wake is scheduled for 4 to 8 p.m. Friday, Dec. 14, at Bruzek Funeral Home. 
    No makeup date has been set for the meet.
    New Prague’s next meet will be at home at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, Dec. 18, against Waconia. Gymnastics alumni from throughout Shetka’s 33-year career are expected to be in attendance as a tribute to the longtime Trojan coach, according to interim head coach Doug Amundsen.
