For the second time this season, the Concordia Academy football team will play an afternoon game in St. Paul. The Beacons were successful the first time around and are hoping that history repeats itself.
The prep volleyball teams at Roseville Area High School and Concordia Academy put together solid stretches of matches last week. Both teams are ranked in the state's top 10 and might even move up in this week's poll.
Heading into its game last week against St. Anthony Village, the Concordia Academy football team had lost its last four games to the Huskies. The Beacons have a similar history with this week's opponent.
Not much went right for the Roseville Area High School football team in week one, so a bounce-back was on the agenda in week two last week. The Raiders came through and now turn their attention to putting together a winning streak as they head into this week's game.
There's an old lament that goes something like, “If it weren't for bad luck, we'd have no luck at all." That pretty much sums up how things went for the Roseville Area High School football team in the first week of the regular season.
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.
