Only two schools placed two competitors in the top 10 at the boys Nordic ski racing state meet earlier this month. Mounds View High School won one of them.
In most years, the Section 4AA boys hockey playoffs features everyone else trying to figure out how to get past Hill-Murray or White Bear Lake. It’s a bit different this season, however, as there is a new team to beat.
Tears are expected when a team sees its season end one game short of the state tournament but some of the tears shed in the Mounds Vie w High School girls hockey team’s locker room following its section-final loss on Feb.
When the Nordic ski racing state meet takes place later this week, the boys’ competition will include a pair of Mustangs. This is the fifth consecutive year in which the Mounds View High School boys team is sending a representative to state.
