It took 18 years, but the Roseville Area High School boys basketball team is headed back to the state tournament. The Raiders are one of eight teams in the Class AAAA field that plays its quarterfinal games at Target Center this week.
The high school boys swimming and diving season came to a close last weekend as the state meet was conducted at the University of Minnesota’s Aquatic Center. Eight members of the Roseville Area High School team were among those competing.
Four Roseville Area High School grapplers closed out their season by competing in the state tournament last week at Xcel Energy Center in St. Paul. Two Raiders lasted four rounds, one went three and the other finished 0-1.
Through the first two rounds of the Section 4AAAA boys basketball playoffs, a lower seed has beaten a higher seed twice. In both instances, a team from the Metro East Conference upset a team from the Suburban East Conference title.
