The Beacons were among the final four teams in last year’s Section 4AA playoffs. The fastpitch softball team has a chance to reach that spot again this season if they can pull off an upset on Tuesday.
Concordia began the week as one of six teams still vying for the section title, and a win over DeLaSalle on Tuesday would match last year’s playoff run.
A second-place finish at the conference track and field meet isn’t too shabby of an accomplishment. That’s what the Concordia Academy girls pulled off last week.
The Beacons amassed 96 points to beat out third-place St. Croix Lutheran by 12 points and take runner-up honors at the Tri-Metro Conference meet on May 13 at Macalester College.
A pair of Roseville Area High School graduates will have their college baseball seasons extended by at least a few more days. Ben Podobinski and Austin Colvard are set to play in the NCAA Division III tournament starting this week.
Podobinski and Colvard are starting outfielders for the University of St. Thomas and the College of St. Scholastica baseball teams, respectively. Both teams won their respective conference tournaments last weekend to clinch automatic berths into the national tournament.
Track and field teams from Roseville Area High School and Concordia Academy last week went after berths in the state true-team meet, but came up short. Roseville’s girls team and Concordia’s boys squad finished runner-up in their respective sections.
Former Roseville Raider Danielle Dickson helped her college track and field team capture a conference title while adding a personal victory at the same time last weekend.
Dickson, a junior at the College of St. Scholastica in Duluth, won the 100-meter dash at the Upper Midwest Athletic Conference championships on Saturday in Morris, Minn. She won the event with a time of 13.07 seconds.
Cretin-Derham Hall, Woodbury and East Ridge may be the top three teams in the Suburban East Conference, but they’re nothing compared to the Roseville Area High School baseball team’s biggest foe so far this spring. The one thing that has given the Raiders the most trouble is the weather.
