Despite the fact that the St. Mary’s baseball team was upset in the second round of the Section 2A playoffs, Mary Lou Mathiowetz will still be making a trip to the MN State Baseball Tournament.
Her son Glen is a coach while grandsons Sean Mathiowetz and Jordan Anderson are member of the Knights team that was eliminated a few weeks ago. The boys did have the experience of playing in the state football playoffs this past fall and, of course, Mary Lou was there to cheer them on. She also was at the Metrodome the same day to root for her other grandson from Bemidji, Mitch Henricks (son of Troy and Sue (Mathiowetz).
Thanks to Mitch’s baseball team, Mary Lou will have a team to cheer for at this year’s state baseball tournament as the Lumberjacks qualified for their second consecutive season in Class AAA. The Lumberjacks (23-2) plays Hill Murray/Mapleswood at 12:30 Thursday (6/14) at Midway Stadium.
Mary Lou Mathiowetz is quite experienced when it comes to state tournaments. Besides the state football tournament last fall, she has watched her son Dean win a state baseball title in 1981. She has witnesses grandson Matt (Mathiowetz) win state baseball championships in 2001, 2002 and 2004. And, her granddaughter Molly (Mathiowetz) made a trip to state in girls basketball in 2005.THIS POST COURTESY: Sleepy Eye Chamber of Commerce, Edward Jones, Stark Farmers Insurance, Dairy Queen, Borth Memorials, Spaeth Ford, Sleepy Eye Medical Center, Riverside Interiors, Sleepy Eye Curves, Randy’s Electric, First Security Agency, Seams to Fit & Tuxes 2, Sturm Funeral Home, Goettig and Ruddy Accounting, Miller Sellner, Cenex/River Region, Culligan, Arneson’s Distributing, Sleepy Eye Off-Sale, Sleepy Eye Chiropractic, Pisoma Kitchen, Southpoint Federal Credit Union, Lisa Ann’s Healing Hands, American Family Insurance, NAPA Auto Part, Sids Signs on Broadway - www.sleepyeyeonline.com
