The road was not kind to the football teams from Mounds View High School and St. Anthony Village High School last week. Both teams lost in their first away games of the season and return home this week trying to right the ship.
The Irondale High School girls cross country team finished in the middle of the pack in its first year in the Northwest Suburban Conference last fall. The Knights are back for season No. 2 in the NWSC and aiming for bigger and better things.
The Irondale Maroon U15 baseball team put together a championship season this summer. A four-game winning streak to end the season gave the team a record of 11-4-1 and vaulted them into first place in the North Star Baseball League.
The 2015 high school football schedule was already so different, what with the season starting two weeks earlier than normal because of stadium availability for the Prep Bowl. Then weather threw in another twist for week-one games on Saturday.
