Hard work will need to trump inexperience for MVHS boys hockey

Mounds View High School boys hockey coach Rick Thomas couldn’t have been more pleased with the work that his players put in over the summer in anticipation of the season that starts this week. With a dearth of experienced players on the roster, the Mustangs will need for that hard work to pay off if they want to be successful.
Mounds View returns only six letterwinners from last year’s team that went 13-10-2.

Experienced group returns to lead Mustangs

Taking over for a coaching legend is never easy. Inheriting a group of young, inexperienced players makes it even tougher. 
That’s what David Leiser faced when he took over the reins of the Mounds View High School boys basketball team last year. Leiser replaced Ziggy Kauls after Kauls stepped down following 45 years as the Mustangs’ coach.
Now in his second season at the helm, Leiser has what he believes is a better team. Mounds View returned four starters and nine total letterwinners from last year’s 12-15 team.

St. Anthony volleyball wins playoff opener

The St. Anthony Village High School volleyball team finished the regular season with a losing record (11-13) but that was good enough to get the Huskies a home match in the first round of the playoffs. They made the most of the opportunity and now have a new opportunity.
St. Anthony, seeded fourth in the South sub-section of Section 5AA, beat fifth-seeded Mound Westonka in four games (25-16, 25-14, 12-25, 25-12). The White Hawks won just three matches in the regular season but was still seeded ahead of three other teams in the sub-section.
