Anoka, Elk River, and Maple Grove have had some elite softball teams in recent seasons, raising the profile of the Northwest Suburban Conference in that sport.
Osseo has been overlooked a bit, but the Orioles have stayed pretty competitive with the top teams and they look to do so again this spring.
Five returning players are back to lead the way for the Orioles, who opened the season with a win over Mahtomedi before losing to Blaine.
Osseo is slated to play games each day Tuesday through Friday this week, weather permitting.
