As we head into the Spring season, although the weather has been cold and rainy outside, our teams have been hard at work. The opening day of the season was a washout, but all of our teams opened the season with victories to start the year. Hopefully the weather will break soon, and with it bring you out to support your Park Ridge Owls.
