The high school track and field season culminated last weekend with the state meet at Hamline University in St. Paul. Both Roseville and Concordia Academy sent competitors to the meet and they turned in some noteworthy performances.
The Concordia Academy fastpitch softball team saw its season come to an end in the fourth round of the Section 4AA playoffs last week. The seventh-seeded Beacons lost 9-5 to fifth-seeded St. Paul Highland Park on May 19.
Even in years when the weather cooperates, the high school spring sports season seems to go by in a flash. Despite it being only May 19, the fastpitch softball playoffs have already gone deep into the bracket.
The Athena Award honors one senior girl per high school for her athletic achievements. This year’s honorees from Roseville Area High School and Concordia Academy are Monica Burich and Michala Walther, respectively.
