Roster turnover doesn’t lessen expectations for RAHS girls basketball

After winning 50 games over the past two seasons, the Roseville Area High School girls basketball team is looking to continue that impressive run again this year. The Raiders will try to do so with a revamped lineup.
Roseville graduated five players who are on college rosters from last year’s team that set the school record for regular-season, conference and total wins. Despite that turnover, head coach Jeff Crosby expects to field another solid team.

RAHS wrestling gunning for big turnaround

A few years ago the Roseville Area High School wrestling team found itself with a senior-heavy lineup, which helped the team finish above .500. The problem with that situation is that it left the Raiders with a thin senior class last year, when they won just three dual meets.
Head coach Mike Holmes and his staff have retooled the roster and are shooting for a quick turnaround.

Boys Hockey: Hill-Murray looking to take another huge step

Perennial boys hockey power Hill-Murray High School began the 2013-2014 season with one major goal in mind. Well, maybe there is more than one thing on the team’s mind.
If I were a mind reader, I would say the Pioneers want to make their 27th bid to the state boys hockey tournament. And once there, I would say the one goal they may have in mind would be to win one more game than they have won the last two years they were in the tournament.

Girls hockey: Achiever Academy downs Polars

Achiever Academy, a small school in Vadnais Heights devoted to hockey, made a trip to Polar Arena Nov. 14, and the Aces gave a skating lesson to the North High Polars.
Except for North goalie Marit Larson, who was just short of perfect, in goal, the Polars found getting into the Aces’ zone a difficult chore.
Larson turned aside 42 of the 44 missiles ticketed for the 24 square feet behind her. She held the opposition scoreless until the third period. Through the first 34 minutes of action, Larson had stopped 27 shots on goal.

Boys Hockey: Tartan facing hockey season with many questions

When you attend a Tartan High School boys hockey game this season, make sure you pick up a roster as you enter the arena.
The old saying, “You can’t tell the players without a program” may well hold true. Last season the Titans had no less than 14 seniors. Those players have since graduated and moved on to other pursuits, and their co-head coach Jim McElmury has retired.
When talking about his expectations for the 2013-2014 hockey season, Tartan co-head coach Steve Romanchuk succinctly stated, “We lack experience.”
