NPHS fall sports teams begin competition

New Prague High School's fall sports seasons are underway, with two teams starting their seasons Thursday, Aug. 23.

The Trojan girls tennis team is scheduled to compete in a tournament at Glencoe-Silver Lake Thursday at 10 a.m. Coach Matt Duoss' team then has three straight home dates, with the Trojans hosting Chaska Friday at 10 a.m., then hosting the New Prague Invitational Saturday, Aug. 25. They will host Le Sueur-Henderson on Tuesday, Aug. 28.

The New Prague Invitational will feature eight teams from throughout the state. Teams are New Prague, Minnetonka, New London-Spicer, Orono, Roseau, United South Central/Alden-Conger, Faribault, and Glencoe-Silver Lake.

The Trojan volleyball team opens its season against an always-strong Owatonna team. That match will be held at the middle school gym in New Prague, as finishing work is still being done on the high school gym project. The Trojans and Huskies have met several times each season, including several times in the post-season in Section 1AAA. That won't happen this year, as New Prague has been moved into Section 2AAA for the post-season.

On Tuesday, New Prague will travel to Faribault for another non-conference contest.

New Prague's boys and girls soccer teams will have their first-ever JV matches Tuesday, Aug. 28, when they travel to Shakopee. Those games are scheduled for the new Shakopee High School complex at 4:30 p.m.

Also on Tuesday, the Trojan swimming team hosts its first meet of the season against Mankato East. That meet will be at the Montgomery-Lonsdale High School pool, which the Trojans use as their home pool, and begins at 6 p.m.

The Trojan football team begins its season Thursday, Aug. 30, hosting St. Michael-Albertville at 7 p.m.

Finally, the boys and girls cross country teams start their season Friday at the Eagan Invitational at 1 p.m.
