Following an easy first-round victory, the Roseville Area High School girls basketball team looked to continue its post-season run when Champlin Park paid a visit on March 5 for a Section 5AAAA semifinal.
The girls basketball teams from Irondale and Mounds View faced tall tasks heading into the Section 5AAAA playoffs last week. Both squads finished below .500 in the regular season and went up against opponents that combined to win 38 games.
Mounds View faced the top two teams from the Northwest Suburban Conference last week in the Section 5AAAA boys basketball playoffs. The Mustangs were able to take down one of them but the other proved to be too tough.
