Tartan and Hill-Murray drop Metro Red games
The 2015 football season is rapidly drawing to a close as area teams played the seventh of eight regularly scheduled games Friday, Oct. 2.
The North High Polars are having their best season in years as they closed down a tough Hastings team by a score of 34-28.
St. Thomas Academy, meanwhile, outscored the Tartan Titans 39-8, and Hill-Murray lost a 56-44 shootout with the Simley Spartans.
It was a clash of School District rivals on Tuesday, Sept. 22, at the Tartan tennis courts. In the end, the North High Polars were on top, 5-2, to gain their first Metro East Conference win of the girls tennis season.
Rain that didn't let up made for a soggy Homecoming for the Hill-Murray players, students and alumni Friday, Sept. 18.
And the outcome of the game — a 9-0 loss to rival North High — certainly didn't improve matters for the Pioneers as they plowed their way through the mud for four quarters.
In their first meet of the 2015 season the North High boys cross country runners outraced their competition in the Carlyle Sherstad Invitational held Aug. 27 in Grantsburg, Wisconsin, and gained an exciting team victory.
