A victory in its first meet of 2015 not only kept the Roseville Area High School gymnastics team's record unblemished, but also helped move the Raiders to the top of the Class AA rankings. Roseville took over the No. 1 spot in the rankings released Jan. 4.
Through 11 games, the Roseville Area High School girls basketball team is giving up just a hair over 40 points per game. That kind of defense has helped the Raiders overcome some slower offensive nights.
Heading into this week, the Raiders have lost just once and are in the thick of the Suburban East Conference race.

Paul and Jakobi Jackson have much in common.
When Paul attended Central High School in the early 1980s he was, as his son Jakobi is now, a football star of considerable accomplishments.
Both of them scored several touchdowns as a running back and both played good defense. Paul did a lot of kicking and punting; Jakobi returned a lot of kicks and punts.
In winning only five games last season, the St. Anthony Village High School boys basketball team suffered through some growing pains while going with a young lineup. The Huskies are hoping to have learned from those trials and tribulations and can put that education to use this season.
