The Roseville Area High School volleyball team is headed back to the state tournament. The Raiders wrapped up their second consecutive Section 4AAA championship with a three-set victory over North St. Paul on Thursday night at Washington Technology Magnet School in St. Paul.

Roseville, the No. 2 seed in the section, took down the top-seeded Polars 26-24, 25-21, 25-23.

All three sets were nail-biters as the largest lead held by either team was five points. The Raiders trailed 9-4 in game one before rallying, never trailed in game two with its largest lead coming at 15-10 and held a four-point lead at 21-17 in game three.

The victory gives Roseville its fourth trip to the state tournament, which runs Nov. 7-9 at Xcel Energy Center in downtown St. Paul. The seeds and schedule for the tournament will be determined on Sunday.
