Beacons no longer on an island

Going into its week-three game last week, the Concordia Academy football team was the only unbeaten squad in the Tri-Metro East Conference. The Beacons’ trip to Nicollet Island in Minneapolis on Friday changed that.
DeLaSalle High School, the main tenant of Nicollet Island, welcomed Concordia to its home field but was anything but an accommodating host. The Islanders ended the Beacons’ win streak with a 46-13 victory.

Returnees set to lead RAHS swimming and diving squad

“A strong lead swimmer in all events and four strong divers,” Roseville head coach Barbara VailOdash listed as her team’s strength. “We are a small team, which will affect our depth.”
