A year ago, the Roseville Area High School volleyball team was coming off a "Cinderella" season that included a trip to the state tournament. Last year's team was dealing with the graduation of three key players in that tournament run and faced a number of unknowns.
This year, the Raiders are also preparing for a season following a state-tournament trip but have a much better feel of what to expect from their lineup.
For the past five seasons, the Roseville Area High School girls cross country team has qualified for the state meet. The Raiders are seeking state trip No. 6 this fall and return a decent nucleus from last year's team.
At its Aug. 11 meeting, the Roseville City council held a public hearing on the proposed budget for next year. The proposed 2015 budget, recommended by city manager Pat Trudgeon, calls for a 4.9 percent levy increase, or $890,829 across the city.
