St. Anthony Village High School sophomore Joe Lynch, left, and senior Xavier Mansfield wrapped up a successful Nordic ski season.
Xavier Mansfield spent the whole high school Nordic ski season ranked No. 1 in the state by skinnyski.com. He proved the ranking committee right by bringing home the state individual championship last week.
With the calendar changing over to February, the focus for the Bulletin-area high school girls hockey teams has also changed. The regular season wrapped up last week so now Mounds View and Irondale/St.
The Northwest Suburban Conference Nordic ski racing championships held last week featured a dozen teams competing. In the girls’ competition, 11 teams were vying for second place while the team championship was nearly a foregone conclusion.
Victories haven’t come easy for the Irondale High School varsity basketball teams this season but they pulled off a double last week. Both squads knocked off Spring Lake Park to earn their fifth victories of the year.
