Woodbury end three-game losing streak with the win
The Woodbury girls swimming and diving team defeated fellow South Washington County school Park in a Suburban East Conference dual at Cottage Grove Middle School on Thursday. Royals swimmers won most of the events on their way to a team win of 118-66. Woodbury standout Meghan Miller scored a first place finish in the 1-meter diving event with her mark of 263.05. The senior came away with some extra confidence about how those six dives went.
First tournament win in four years
Winning streak hits three games
The New Life Academy girls tennis team is now on a three-match winning streak after defeating St. Paul Washington Technology Magnet 7-0 last Monday and St. Paul Highland Park 6-1 last Tuesday. The rest of the week was dedicated to the Eagles working on their game in practice. Head coach Marcia Bussey credited the team’s captains Jessica Gross, Siri Nicol and Rachel Breiholz for helping the team improve in practices this season.
The Woodbury volleyball team has been dealing with a few changes in the lineup over the past few weeks.
Absence creates hole at wide receiver
Quarterback Busch passes for four touchdowns
The Woodbury football team dropped to a 0-3 record to start the season after losing 28-6 to East Metro-Blue District opponent Roseville on Friday. Roseville jumped ahead 14-0 before Woodbury was able to score some points. Quarterback Ryan Christensen completed a 31-yard pass to Nico Bolden to reduce the Royals' deficit to 14-6. Roseville added to its lead with two touchdowns in the fourth quarter.
Lightning caused problems for East Ridge and White Bear Lake in the third quarter of Friday’s East Metro-Blue District football game. But by that time, it did not matter. The Raptors did not punt in the first half of the road game, scoring four touchdowns to jump ahead 31-0 at halftime. That score ended up being the final after lightning forced officials to cancel the game in the middle of the third quarter.
