The Athena Award winners from all three Bulletin-area high schools were honored recently at their respective banquets. Mounds View High School’s Katie McDaniels and Irondale High School’s Lindsey Kueng were among the St. Paul-area winners honored at a banquet on April 17 while St. Anthony Village’s Kirsten Whitney was among the Minneapolis-area winners honored at a banquet on May 3.
The College of St. Scholastica men’s track and field team won its second consecutive Upper Midwest Athletic Conference outdoor team championship on Saturday with a little help from a former St. Anthony Village High School athlete.
Former Mounds View High School football standout Ian Goldsmith was named a member of the 2013 National Football Foundation Hampshire Honor Society. The honor goes to college football players who have maintained a cumulative grade-point average of at least 3.2 throughout their college career.

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.
