Our students have been putting in long hours practicing for months now, and it is time to recognize them for all their hard work. We are so proud of all our student-athletes and performers. Here are some highlights from the fall:

Maple Grove Senior High

  • The girls’ cross-country team earned first place in sections and advanced to the state tournament.
  • In a dramatic game against St. Michael-Albertville, the MGSH football team scored three touchdowns in one minute and earned national attention for the legendary win on Nov. 9. They advanced to the state quarterfinals and had the opportunity to play at the U.S. Bank Stadium.
  • Both girls and boys soccer teams won their section championships and went on to state. The boys’ team finished fourth at state and the girls’ team notched a second place finish. Meredith Haakenson earned the Star Tribune’s Metro Player of the Year in girls’ soccer.
