The Rosemount girls hockey team nearly pulled off an upset of No. 1-seeded Eagan in the Section 3AA tournament Wednesday night. The Irish carried a lead into the final minute of regulation, but the Wildcats scored a late equalizer and netted the game-winner in overtime to advance with a 5-4 victory over their South Suburban Conference rivals at Eagan Civic Arena.

Nicholas David Mrozinski became a star on the recently completed season of The Voice, but he clearly hasn't forgotten where he came from. The Eagan native, a former student at Rosemount's St. Joseph school, came to town Jan. 17 to visit the school and talk with the students and other community members who formed a kind of fan club during his run on the NBC singing competition. St. Joseph principal Tom Joseph declared Thursday Nicholas David Mrozinski Day at St. Joseph, and Father Paul Jarvis presented Mrozinski with a piece of the old St.
St. Joseph school students put on a Christmas pageant last week that featured singing and drama. We have photos and video.
Two dance numbers, a performance by a live band and a student dressed like a banana and singing Jingle Bells were among the highlights of Rosemount High School's traditional pre-holiday break pep fest. The event included a performance by Twin Cities band West of Aldean, which sold merchandise afterward and donated part of the proceeds to RHS arts programs. Students also had a chance to take a half-court basketball shot to win a share of a cash pot. The event closed with a glow-in-the-dark performance by the Irish drumline.
Rosemount residents who want to take the ice with the RHS boys hockey team will have a chance Wednesday night. They can do some good for the community at the same time. The Rosemount boys hockey team will host its seventh-annual Skate with the Irish from 7 to 8:30 p.m. Nov. 21 at Rosemount Ice Arena. There will be a bake sale, silent auction, concessions, tours and autographs by the team. All proceeds go toward the team's Adopt-a-Family program. Attendees are asked to bring a non-perishable item for 360 Communities.
A chemical odor but not a safety risk resulted Wednesday morning from an incident at a private gas-handling facility near Highway 3 and 160th Street West in Rosemount. Rosemount fire crews responded at 7 a.m. to a report of a valve break at the facility. The valve controlled the chemical used as an odor agent.
Rosemount will also have two unfamiliar faces -- sort of -- representing the city on the Dakota County Board of Commissioners. With 18,545 votes counted Tuesday Gerlach was leading Victoria Swanson 11,198 to 7,248 for the county commissioner seat in District 7. That district includes a narrow sliver of Rosemount's west side. Things were significantly closer Tuesday in District 4, where incumbent Nancy Schouweiler led challenger Bill Klein 11,666 to 11,490 with 23,261 votes counted. District 4, which covers most of Rosemount, was created this year by redistricting.
There wasn't much offense in Rosemount's Section final football game against Stillwater. But for the Irish, there was just enough. Rosemount went to Stillwater Friday night and beat the top-seeded Ponies 7-6 in a Class 6A crossover game that pitted teams from different sections against each other. Stillwater got on the board first and second in the first half, but couldn't manage more than a field goal either time. The Ponies got a 32-yard field goal in the first quarter and another field goal in the second.
