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.
The prep volleyball teams at Roseville Area High School and Concordia Academy put together solid stretches of matches last week. Both teams are ranked in the state's top 10 and might even move up in this week's poll.
Not much went right for the Roseville Area High School football team in week one, so a bounce-back was on the agenda in week two last week. The Raiders came through and now turn their attention to putting together a winning streak as they head into this week's game.
There's an old lament that goes something like, “If it weren't for bad luck, we'd have no luck at all." That pretty much sums up how things went for the Roseville Area High School football team in the first week of the regular season.
A year ago, the Roseville Area High School volleyball team was coming off a "Cinderella" season that included a trip to the state tournament. Last year's team was dealing with the graduation of three key players in that tournament run and faced a number of unknowns.
This year, the Raiders are also preparing for a season following a state-tournament trip but have a much better feel of what to expect from their lineup.
For the past five seasons, the Roseville Area High School girls cross country team has qualified for the state meet. The Raiders are seeking state trip No. 6 this fall and return a decent nucleus from last year's team.
