Roseville Area High School alumnus Jacob Frey has found success at the college level both athletically and academically. Frey, a 2011 RAHS graduate, recently completed a notable sophomore year at Valparaiso University.
Frey won a conference championship in track and field for the Crusaders and also continued to perform well in the classroom.
Frey turned in the top finish on the team by winning the discus at the Horizon League Outdoor Championships in early May. Frey’s first attempt of the meet traveled 154 feet, 11 inches, established a season-best and held up as the best throw of the competition.
The Rosetown American Legion baseball team had its best week of the season last week and is looking to continue that trend as the post-season looms.
The Rockets are in the final week of the regular season and begin their quest for a state-tournament berth on Monday.
Rosetown went 3-1 in Fourth District play last week with victories over Tri-City Maroon, Hamline Red and White Bear. Over the weekend, the Rockets played in the Gopher Classic, going 2-3 in pool play with wins over Apple Valley and West Fargo and losses to Mankato, Yankton (S.D.) and Coon Rapids.
The original list of Roseville Area High School’s spring all-conference and all-conference honorable mention athletes was published June 25. The girls track and field honorees were furnished after that and are presented here.
The consistency that Rosetown American Legion baseball head coach Jeremy Nelson has been seeking has yet to materialize this summer. The Rockets have yet to be able to string some victories together.
Last week, Rosetown went 2-4 and remains in the lower half of the Fourth District standings.
With the Independence Day holiday and a weekend tournament, Rosetown’s district schedule was light last week. The Rockets dropped a 7-4 decision to Maplewood Green on July 1 but bounced back to top White Bear 3-2 on July 2.
When Jeff Whisler took over as the activities director at Roseville Area High School in the summer of 2012, his first major order of business was to find a boys hockey coach. A year later, Whisler spent the early part of the summer finalizing the hiring of another coach for that position.
Whisler announced on July 5 that Ryan Adams had accepted the offer of the position of Roseville’s boys hockey head coach. Adams takes over the head varsity job after serving as the junior varsity head coach last season.

It’s been 20 years since last they “flew” at Copper Peak It doesn’t seem that long ago.
Actually it seems like yesterday that I sat on a stool just inside a door and watched the ski jumping world pass by on their way into a banquet.
The year was 1970 and just about anyone I knew in that world of ski jumpers was in Ironwood, Mich. They had gathered to witness the first ski flying event ever held in the Western Hemisphere.
A pair for former Roseville Area High School athletes earned collegiate awards earlier this month. Danielle Dickson and Maddie Gray graduated from Roseville in 2011 and 2012, respectively, and have taken their athletic talents to their respective colleges.
Dickson, a sophomore at the College of St. Scholastica in Duluth, Minn., is a member of the women’s track and field team and was named academic all-Upper Midwest Athletic Conference. To receive the honor, an athlete must have a grade-point average of at least 3.5.
The 39th-annual Minnesota High School Baseball All-Star Series took place last weekend at Athletic Park in Chaska. Roseville Area High Schoolís Ben Buerkle participated as a member of the Metro East team.
Buerkle’s squad went 1-2 by beating the North team 2-0 and losing to the South team 4-3 and the Metro West team 3-0.
Emily Peterfeso capped off her athletic career at Roseville Area High School last week by playing in the Class AAA state tournament at Bunker Hills Golf Course in Coon Rapids. Making her first state appearance, Peterfeso turned in a two-day score of 189 to finish in a tie for 71st place.
