The high school baseball post-season began late last week with the teams from Roseville Area High School and Concordia Academy trying to reach the double-elimination portion of their respective section tournaments.
The Concordia Academy fastpitch softball team saw its season come to an end in the fourth round of the Section 4AA playoffs last week. The seventh-seeded Beacons lost 9-5 to fifth-seeded St. Paul Highland Park on May 19.
The Roseville Area High School fastpitch softball team entered the post-season as one of the hottest teams in the state. The Raiders’ eight-game winning streak to close out the regular season was the third-longest in Class AAA.
Even in years when the weather cooperates, the high school spring sports season seems to go by in a flash. Despite it being only May 19, the fastpitch softball playoffs have already gone deep into the bracket.
The Roseville Area High School track and field teams competed in last week’s Section 6AAA true team meet. The Raiders came through with some notable individual performances, but were unable to clinch a spot in this week’s state true team meet.
