RAHS girls lacrosse looks to get back on track

The Roseville Area High School girls lacrosse team started the season by winning five of its first six games. The Raiders then dropped two in a row last week and is looking to get back to winning this week.

Roseville began the week with six games remaining in the regular season, including four Suburban East Conference matches.

The Raiders hosted Minnehaha Academy in a non-conference game on May 9, past the deadline for this edition of the Review. They travel to Mounds View on May 11.

Roseville began the week in fourth place in the Suburban East Conference standings, one and a half games behind first-place East Ridge. The Raptors were responsible for one of Roseville’s losses last week. The other came against Bloomington Kennedy.

Of the four remaining SEC tilts, only one is against a team ahead of Roseville in the standings.

Much of Roseville’s success this season has to do with the one-two scoring punch of Hannah Distad and Ciara Colvard. Distad, a sophomore, led the conference through May 5 in goals and points with 29 and 38, respectively. She was second in assists with nine.

Colvard, a senior, was second in the SEC in goals with 25.

Roseville opened the season with back-to-back victories over Shattuck-St. Mary’s and Forest Lake before losing to Park-Cottage Grove. The Raiders then rattled off three straight wins over Woodbury, St. Croix Prep and White Bear Lake.
