While the recent weather might not make one think of hockey season, the calendar says it’s time. The high school girls hockey season is underway and the puck drops for Roseville Area High School with three games this week.
The Hill-Murray girls soccer team entered the state tournament as the No. 4 seed and finished one place higher than that seed. The Pioneers went 2-1 in their three tournament games and brought home the third-place trophy.
Hill-Murray and Holy Angels were clearly the top two volleyball teams in Section 4AA and they met the in finals last week. The match went four sets, two of which were close and the other two not so much.
The fourth-place finish posted by the Mounds View High School boys cross country team at the state meet last weekend was the fifth-best in the history of the program. It was also the Mustangs’ best performance at state in 17 years.
Based on the final score, the Roseville-Maple Grove football playoff game was a typical two seed vs. seven seed blowout. But a deeper look at the box score shows a close contest that wasn’t decided until the fourth quarter.
For the seniors on the Roseville Area High School volleyball team, their final trip to the state tournament is later this week. They’ve adopted an underdog mentality heading into the tournament and are ready to let it all hang out.
