Ross Fleming, head coach of the Mounds View High School boys cross country team said at the beginning of the season that he believed his team could reach the state tournament. His team proved him right last week.
The St. Anthony Village High School boys cross country team entered the season as the defending Tri-Metro Conference champion but was without its all-state runner from last year. As it turned out, that didn't matter.

As the season progressed it was more and more difficult to ignore the similarities between the 2015 Mounds View High School girls soccer team and the 2013 squad. Both teams had powerful offenses and stingy defenses that put up similar numbers.
After ruling Section 5AA for quite a few years, the Mounds View High School girls tennis team found itself shifted back to Section 4AA this fall. That move proved to be the end of the Mustangs' streak of consecutive state appearances.
