Tartan football player Dustin Meyers-Rost, a graduating senior who played a vital roll in the success of the Titans’ 2012 season, was recently selected to play in the Minnesota High School All-Star Football Classic.
In a game utilized by both the North Polars and the Roseville Raiders — May 21, at Kuenkel Field — as a warmup for the upcoming Section 4AAA playoffs, the Polars stopped the Raiders by a count of 8-2.
“We hit the ball well. We had some timely hits for a change,” offered North head coach Ron Adams. “It was a good test for us. I thought we played well. I think we had an errorless game in the field. It was also good to see that we had some good, two-out hits. Especially (Josh) Marlowe who was seeing the ball well today.”
North High junior shortstop Adam Hildebrandt (7) and Jake Dick (2) are in on a double play as Hill-Murray senior Luc Henke (2) runs towards second. The Pioneers won 3-2 after the Polars took the first game 9-6 at Kuenkel Field May 14.
It was a doubleheader May 15 against the South St. Paul Packers, but the suspense didn’t last long, as the North Polars put the first game on ice when they scored five runs in the last minutes of the first inning.
In a meeting May 15 at the North St. Paul Community Center, the activities directors of the nine-member Classic Suburban Conference voted unanimously to say "goodbye" to the conference at the end of the 2013-14 school year.
The Classic Suburban Conference has been in existence since the start of the 2000-01 athletic season. It is comprised of seven public schools and two private schools in the east metro area.
In the first motion of the meeting, Simley AD Will Short made the motion to dissolve the conference. North High AD Jed Helwig seconded the motion.

What a difference one game makes when it comes to a baseball game. Such was the case May 7, when Mahtomedi came to play the Tartan Titans in double header baseball action at the Titans’ field.
