Hill-Murray and North High School both sent competitors to the girls swimming and diving state meet earlier this fall. Here’s a recap of how both teams fared.
Hill-Murray girls hockey team members Lindsey Featherstone and Taylor Wemple will continue their athletic careers at the collegiate level next year after signing their letters of intent.
High school seniors are allowed to make official their commitment to a future college team starting in early Nov. All three Review-area high schools had student-athletes put pen to paper to sign letters of intent.
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 first round of the Section 4AAAA football playoffs turned out to be the end of the 2016 road for North and Tartan. Both teams were on the road in the quarterfinals on Oct. 25 and couldn’t get past a pair of big city foes.
The Hill-Murray football team headed into the playoffs a year ago having not won a regular-season game. The Pioneers went on to upset New Life Academy in the quarterfinals for their only victory of the season.
The high school football regular season has reached week eight, which means games on Wednesday because of the teachers’ convention. It also means that teams have one more chance to prepare for the post-season.
