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.
Concordia Academy sophomore Barnabas Preble closed out the cross country season recently by racing in the conference and section meets. Among his accomplishments in the final two weeks of the season was a runner-up performance at conference.
If it’s the first week of November, it means the Roseville Area High School girls cross country team should be preparing for the state meet. That’s exactly what the Raiders are doing after finishing second at the section meet last week.
The volleyball teams from Concordia Academy and DeLaSalle appear destined to meet in the section final for the second consecutive season. The top two seeds had little trouble in winning their section playoff openers last week.
Not much went right for the Concordia Academy football team in its playoff opener last week. The Beacons gave up three first-quarter touchdowns and the ensuing two-point conversions and went on to lose 44-0 to Spectrum.

The Concordia Academy football team hasn’t won a game since the first week of the season. The team the Beacons beat back then was Spectrum, which went on to finish the regular season with a .500 record.
After a one-year hiatus, it appears that the Section 4AAA volleyball title will once again come down to Roseville and North St. Paul. They are the top two seeds in the section and are playing the best of any teams in the section.
Only one Class 6A high school football team with a losing record is opening the playoffs at home this week. Hopkins is that team and it has the same record as Roseville, which did not get a first-round home playoff game.
