The girls basketball teams from Irondale and Mounds View squared off for their annual intra-district game on Dec. 4 and their lineups were somewhat unique. Of the 10 players who started the game, only two were seniors.
The Mounds View High School girls basketball team put together a solid season a year ago with a senior-laden lineup. That leaves the Mustangs in a situation this year where they are looking to replace a number of players who graduated.
The Irondale High School boys basketball team has suffered through back-to-back single-digit win-total seasons. This year's squad isn't guaranteeing it will be end that streak but it appears to be the most capable team in the last three years.
Since it split from the Mounds View/Irondale co-op back in the late 1990s, the Irondale High School girls hockey team has been a one-school show but that has changed this season. The Knights are now the Irondale/St. Anthony girls hockey team.
