Caledonia/Spring Grove hosted St. Charles on Tuesday, May 2. Two days later the Warriors were scheduled to play at Wabasha-Kellogg, but a bomb threat in Wabasha cancelled that date. A visit from Winona Cotter on Friday closed out the week for the Warriors.

In spite of sunny skies and 65 degree temperatures, it was a long day for the Warriors on Friday, as division-leading Cotter shut down C/SG 10-0 in a run-rule shortened contest. Lydia Melde singled in the third inning, and got as far as third base when Amanda Reinhart also collected a hit. Melde also reached scoring position (second base) in the top of the first, and Alyssa Meiners got as far as second base in the second inning when Buttell singled, but the Ramblers played solid defense.

Cotter pitcher Alexis Hadaway limited the Warriors to four hits, and walked nobody.
