Mounds View sophomore earns honor

Although her team lost in the first round, Mounds View High School sophomore Mariah Northrop earned a spot on the Class AA all-tournament team that was announced last week.

Northrop scored an unassisted goal in the Mustangs’ 2-1 loss to Eden Prairie in the state quarterfinals on Oct. 23 at St. Cloud State University’s Husky Stadium. Mounds View lost the game 2-1.

Eden Prairie went on to share third place when it tied Burnsville 1-1 in the third-place match last week at the Metrodome.

Minnetonka won the state championship with a 1-0 victory over Lakeville North.
