As the start of the 2008-09 high school sports year quickly approaches, the past summer has turned out to be a busy time for local athletes.
For example, Rosemount’s James Saintey has been selected to play with a Junior A hockey team in Fairbanks, Alaska. He was named to the North American Hockey League team in June, and will play in a showcase tournament this month in Blaine.
Saintey will play with the Fairbanks Ice Dogs.
Also, the Rosemount High School Irishettes fared well at the Just for Kix Camp. The team also placed third in the AM Jam competition. Out of a camp of 300 dancers, junior Lexie Sorensen was awarded one of five Outstanding Dancer medals, while senior Grace Riley earned one of five firecracker awards for being one of the most outgoing dancers. Junior Carissa Sawyer placed in the top five of the toe-touch competition, and junior Michelle Berg was in the top 10 of the kick competition.
Volunteers fix up concession stand
Rosemount High School athletics director Mike Manning had high praise for a group of volunteers who gave of their time and helped rebuild the visitor’s side concession stand at Irish Stadium during a recent weekend.
Among the volunteers who participated were: Kevin and Jennifer Pauly, Jim and Ellen Malicki, Greg Sicora, Ken Snare, Paul Thompson, Hank Broback, Bill and Lori Busher, Mike Glaus, and Don and Billie Sandoz.
Manning was appreciative of each of the volunteer’s efforts and their generosity in helping fix up the concession stand on the visitor’s sidelines.
