Raiders go 1-1 in tennis sections

The Roseville Area High School boys tennis team made a run at an upset in the second round of the section playoffs last week but came up just short.

The Raiders, seeded seventh in Section 4AA, visited second-seeded Centennial in the quarterfinals on May 19 and fell one point shy of knocking off the Cougars. Centennial held on for a 4-3 victory.

With the win, Centennial advanced to the semifinals and hosted third-seeded Mahtomedi on May 23. In the other semifinal, top-seeded Mounds View hosted Stillwater. Both were played after the deadline for this edition of the Review.

The two semifinal winners advance to the section final on May 25 at 3:30 p.m. at the University of Minnesota’s Baseline Tennis Center.

Roseville had opened the section tournament two days earlier with a 6-1 win over 10th-seeded Tartan.

Next up for the Raiders are the section singles and doubles championships on May 26 and 31 at the Baseline Tennis Center.
