It's 'state week' at Roseville

Student attendance at Roseville Area High School could be rather low on Thursday considering that the school's volleyball and football teams play state-tournament contests that day.

Thanks to back-to-back section-final victories last week, Roseville is gearing up for maybe its single biggest sports day in the history of the school.

Raiders bring experience to state volleyball tournament

A year ago, the Roseville Area High School volleyball team had a roster full of players who had plenty of varsity experience but none of it in the state tournament. Fast forward a year and the Raiders are back in the state tournament with a less-experienced group of players overall but five of them know what itís like to play in the state tournament.
Roseville received the No. 5 seed and opens the state tournament Thursday at 9 a.m. at Xcel Energy Center against fourth-seeded Eden Prairie.
