The Roseville Area High School volleyball team went into the Apple Valley tournament on Sept. 19 with only one loss on the season and by the end of the weekend, saw that loss total jump to four. Despite the 1-3 record in the tournament, the Raiders didn't let it affect them the following week.
For the first time this season, the Roseville Area High School and Concordia Academy football teams lost in the same week. This week, both teams are at home for homecoming. Here's a look at last week's action and what lies ahead.
The Concordia Academy football team snapped a two-game losing streak last Friday by winning its second road game in as many tries this season. The Beacons traveled to St. Paul Humboldt on Friday afternoon and came away with a 28-6 victory.

The Suburban East Conference football schedule makers did Roseville no favors with the back-to-back games it saddled the Raiders with in weeks four and five this year. Roseville has the pleasure of facing two of the top three teams in the conference in consecutive weeks.
A Parkview Middle School pool record fell earlier this month. Roseville Area High School freshman Michelle Schlossmacher Smith recorded the highest diving score in the history of the pool at a meet on Sept. 4.

At least once a year, a group of former coaches and students from Alexander Ramsey High School get together for a breakfast. It's a way for the students to honor the coaches who had a profound impact on them way back when.
For the second time this season, the Concordia Academy football team will play an afternoon game in St. Paul. The Beacons were successful the first time around and are hoping that history repeats itself.
