In somewhat less than ideal temps but dry conditions of April 30, the North Polars hosted School District 622 archrival Tartan at the tennis venue at the McKnight complex in North St. Paul.
The trip back to Oakdale was made with less enthusiasm for the Titans than the ride on the way to North as a result of a 6-1 loss handed them by the Polars.
Way back when the temperature was 72 degrees and ideal for playing softball outdoors -- that would be early last week -- the Hill-Murray Pioneers hosted the Mahtomedi Zephyrs in a revised-schedule double-header of 5-inning games.
The Zephyrs came to Hill-Murray April 29 hoping for twin wins. But the high-flying Pioneers pushed their 2013 record to 5-0 with a sweep of the two games played.
The recent attempt to oust St. Thomas Academy from the Classic Suburban Conference has raised more than one question.
Probably the first question raised was if it was legal. After a vote of 6-2 and one abstention by the nine activity directors of the conference to kick out St. Thomas beginning in the 2014-15 school year, a review of the Classic Suburban bylaws raised the question of legality. Evidently the bylaws are unclear as to whether that can or can’t be done.
