Metrodome memories

Because of some deadline changes because of the holidays, the sports stories in this edition were written the week before Christmas. Since the timeliness of that kind of turnaround isn’t great, I thought I’d do an end-of-the-year list.

RAHS wrestling gunning for big turnaround

A few years ago the Roseville Area High School wrestling team found itself with a senior-heavy lineup, which helped the team finish above .500. The problem with that situation is that it left the Raiders with a thin senior class last year, when they won just three dual meets.
Head coach Mike Holmes and his staff have retooled the roster and are shooting for a quick turnaround.
