“The Block” is the traveling trophy that the football teams from Irondale High School and Spring Lake Park High School battle for each year. It was created in 2011 but hasn’t spent much time in New Brighton.
The Irondale High School football team’s two victories in 2015 came on the road. The Knights are off to a 0-2 start this season and look to break into the win column this week when they venture away from home for the second consecutive week.
The 2015 cross country season was one to remember for the Irondale High School girls team. A pair of third-place finishes in the final two meets of the season in 2015 gave the Knights their best post-season in a number of years.
The Irondale High School girls track and field team that qualified for state in the 4x400-meter relay in 2015 finished in the bottom half of the standings in the prelims and did not advance to the finals.
