I am the sports writer for the Woodbury Bulletin and South Washington County Bulletin. I'm a graduate from the Greenlee School of Journalism and Mass Communication at Iowa State University and have always had a passion for sports since a young age. Whether it was watching or playing sports, I always knew sports would be in my career. I've been born and raised in the suburbs of Minneapolis and look forward to continuing to learn more about the Woodbury and Cottage Grove area throughout my time in this position.

It was a busy weekend for the East Ridge boys basketball team, but a successful one as well. The Raptors traveled to the Athlete’s Village at the University of Minnesota to play three games on Saturday in front of Minnesota Gophers’ head coach Richard Pitino. The boys didn’t disappoint with a big win against Totino-Grace in the first game. Then, the Raptors faced two dominant teams with Prior Lake and Park Center.
Tierney Wolfgram. The name is becoming more common in the metro area and the state of Minnesota and she’s only heading into her sophomore year at Math and Science Academy.
It was a 10-10 tie heading into the bottom of the seventh inning between East Ridge and Eastview Legion teams. Eastview was up to bat in the bottom of the inning and found a way to score a run and walk it off with a single to defeat the Raptors 11-10 on Wednesday night.
The East Ridge Legion baseball team had the first laugh on Saturday afternoon’s game, but also had the last laugh. It was a 3-2 final score in favor of the Raptors over the St. Paul Park Legion team. “It was an exciting game,” said East Ridge head coach Aaron Rau. “I’m just proud of our players to come out with the win.”
WOODBURY — The Woodbury Blue Legion baseball team didn’t have to worry much about defense because the ball was rarely hit to a player since Adam Mazur was on the mound for the Royals.
ST. PAUL — For a handful of Woodbury and Cottage Grove area athletes, the past couple of days have been memorable in unimaginable ways. For some it was their first time coming and for others, they are defending champions, but either way, the ability to compete in state track and field is an honor. "The atmosphere here is unbelievable," said Math and Science Freshman Tierney Wolfgram. "I always look forward to this weekend."
It started at a young age. Caleb and Luke Fridinger would travel with their parents and grandparents to different locations around the country. During these vacations, the two boys' father, Steve Fridinger, would team up with their grandfather for father-son tennis tournaments. After the matches, Caleb and Luke would come onto the court and either play or run around for a few minutes. That opportunity allowed the two to not only play this sport of tennis, but to find a passion and love for this sport.
WOODBURY — The New Life Academy baseball team was down to its last five outs of the season. The Eagles were down 7-2 in the bottom of the sixth inning. The confidence was dwindling and the future of their season was starting to get closer and closer. Then, a voice from the New Life dugout erupted and said, "we aren't done yet." That voice belongs to senior and leader Zack Thor who wasn't ready to end his career as an Eagle.
COON RAPIDS—The Woodbury Royals girls golf team was heading into the second day of the section match in first place. The Royals were 18 holes away from heading into the state match next week, but the girls would feel the nerves and the heat throughout the day. The six Woodbury girls players were able to manage those feelings and emotions to push through and capture the section title, which allows the team to advance to the state match.
ST. PAUL — Positive energy. Togetherness. Grit. Those are the three core values the Woodbury Royals baseball program lives by this 2018 season. Those three values were shown in a long day at CHS Field during the 4AAAA section tournament. The Royals played two games back-to-back resulting in a win during the first game, but the season came to a close after losing to Roseville 13-3 in the second game.
