The Mounds View High School dance team added to the school's list of winter state-tournament entries when it competed in the jazz division state meet on Feb. 13 at Target Center. The Viewettes were one of 12 teams to qualify for the Class AAA state event.
The Mounds View High School boys hockey team played even with perennial power Hill-Murray for two of the three periods in the Section 4AA semifinals last week. The problem was that the Pioneers completely owned the first period, and that was enough.
