The track and field teams from Roseville Area High School and Concordia Academy had a number of athletes compete in last week’s state meet at Hamline University in St. Paul. Here’s a recap of the results.
Two weeks ago, the track and field teams from Mounds View High School swept the team titles at the Suburban East Conference championships. A week later they did the same at the Section 5AA state qualifier.
The number 400 seemed to be a common theme for the Roseville Area High School track and field teams at last week’s Section 4AA meet. Four of the Raiders’ six entrants in this week’s state meet qualified for events with “400” in the name.
The Irondale High School track and field teams participated in the final North Suburban Conference championship meet last week and went out on top. Both the boys and girls squads claimed team championships.
With first place all but a lock, the real drama was in the battle for second place on Friday at Stillwater High School in the Class AAA State True-team Track and Field Meet. That turned out not to be that close either.
A second-place finish at the conference track and field meet isn’t too shabby of an accomplishment. That’s what the Concordia Academy girls pulled off last week.
The Beacons amassed 96 points to beat out third-place St. Croix Lutheran by 12 points and take runner-up honors at the Tri-Metro Conference meet on May 13 at Macalester College.
