Former Raider nabs conference title


Danielle Dickson

Former Roseville Raider Danielle Dickson helped her college track and field team capture a conference title while adding a personal victory at the same time last weekend.

Dickson, a junior at the College of St. Scholastica in Duluth, won the 100-meter dash at the Upper Midwest Athletic Conference championships on Saturday in Morris, Minn. She won the event with a time of 13.07 seconds.

One of 13 event winners for the Saints, Dickson not only won herself a gold medal but she also contributed to St. Scholastica’s team championship. The Saints amassed 292 points to easily outpoint runner-up Minnesota-Morris, which finished with 200 points.

The team title was the 10th in a row for the Saints.

Dickson won the 100-meter dash by 0.08 seconds over Northwestern freshman Jordan Skarin.

In addition to the win in the 100, Dickson finished with second-place performances in two other events. She was runner-up in the long jump by a quarter of an inch and teamed up to finish second in the 4x100-meter dash.

Last year as a sophomore, Dickson won the 4x100 and long jump and was second in the 100 at the UMAC meet.

A 2011 Roseville graduate, Dickson was a three-time state qualifier and twice earned all-state honors.
