OK. Spring 2013 has gone beyond silly, straight past ridiculous and into surreal. It has played out much like a run-of-the-mill horror flick, with a lengthy series of grim, demoralizing days, followed by a sprite of hope-inducing nice weather, only to be shocked back to reality by one last cruel stretch.

It has gotten this far: In little more than a week, the playoffs for boys’ tennis begin. In two weeks, softball and golf are to begin section play. There’s barely been time to get outside and the end is already in sight.

With the understanding that the weather will indeed provide a reprieve this week, here’s a quick rundown of the most notable goings-on in the metropolitan area.



• Cretin-Derham Hall at Mounds View (DH), 3:15 p.m.


Burnsville at Eastview, 4:15 p.m.


• East Ridge at Forest Lake (DH), 4:15 p.m.


• Tartan at Hill-Murray (DH), 2:30 p.m.; Coon Rapids at Champlin Park, 4:15 p.m.


Lakeville North at Apple Valley, 4:15 p.m.


• Minnehaha Academy vs. St. Cloud Cathedral (Putz Field), 1 p.m.
