St. Croix Lutheran
The opening of the high school football season is one of the most exciting times of the year for prep athletes, but it’s also a time of great unknowns.
Jenna Privette, a hockey player from St. Croix Lutheran, is fighting every day to get her life back to normal as much as she can.
A report released Thursday by the Minnesota State High School League said Jenna Privette was not checked and no illegal hit was made before she went into the boards in a recent girls high school hockey game.
The hockey community continues to support the two high school players that suffered serious injuries on the ice.
It’s hard to believe the prep football season came to a close with the Prep Bowl last weekend at the Metrodome. Six games were played over a two-day stretch in downtown Minneapolis. When it was all over, six teams were hoisting a state championship trophy.
Jackson Goplen scored three times, including twice in a back-and-forth fourth quarter, and St. Croix Lutheran held on to beat Fairmont 34-32 in the Class 3A state championship game Saturday afternoon.
It’s what every kid who plays high school football dreams of: The chance to play on the Friday or Saturday after Thanksgiving for a state championship.
It was a big weekend in state football semifinal action over at the Metrodome as teams competed for the chance to play in this weekend’s Prep Bowl.
It’s state semifinal week in high school football, which means it’s going to be a busy weekend over at the Metrodome.
There are 48 high school football teams still playing in Minnesota after section champions were decided last Friday and Saturday around the state. But the celebration is over and the preparation is back underway as those teams will do battle Friday and Saturday in the state quarterfinals.
When championships are on the line, that’s when leaders step up and carry their teams forward. That was never more evident than Friday night as some of the state’s top players emerged to lead their teams to victories in section championship games around the state.
It’s definitely starting to feel more like fall around Minnesota, and it’s definitely feeling more like football weather as teams hit their fields on game day.
