With Christmas approaching quickly, the varsity basketball teams at St. Anthony Village High School may be hoping for some early presents in the form of victories. They have been hard to come by in the first few weeks of the season.
It was 13 seasons ago that the Irondale High School girls basketball team last made it to the state tournament. Since then, winning records and playoff victories have been few and far between for the Knights.
Coming off a year of streaks, both good and bad, the Mounds View High School boys hockey team would like to see more consistency as it heads into the 2014-15 season. Last season, the Mustangs struggled early before making a nice run in the middle of the schedule, but ultimately couldn't overcome its early problems.
A season-opening game is usually a big enough deal to draw a good crowd, but there was an extra reason to turn out for the Mounds View High School boys basketball team's first game of the season last Friday. One member of the team was on the verge of a milestone from the opening tap.
