ELMWOOD – From one standpoint, the graduation losses the Elmwood High School volleyball team took from last season should be an early setback for the 2013 Raider squad Gone are nearly all of the team’s statistical leaders from last season, including team leader in kills Ally Pax, who was All Dunn-St.
SPRING VALLEY - Everything which makes up a good volleyball team on paper, the Spring Valley High School squad has for this upcoming season. The Cardinals return eight letter winners covering all the key positions on the floor. This group includes one of the Dunn-St.

CHANHASSEN, Minn. - A small Minnesota community of not quite 24,000 has again been named one of America's best small towns by CNN Money.

PITTSBURGH - The Milwaukee Brewers won’t make the playoffs – but third baseman Aramis Ramirez says it feels like a playoff atmosphere when they face teams which are headed to the post-season.

HUDSON - A friend and former co-worker of Aaron Schaffhausen will spend time on probation, for threatening to hurt prosecutors and witnesses at Schaffhausen’s sanity trial in April. 31-year-old Joseph Rollag of Andover, Minnesota pleaded guilty yesterday in Saint Croix County to illegally carrying a concealed weapon.

GREEN BAY - Green Bay Packers’ running back DuJuan Harris will be put on the injured reserve list with a knee injury he aggravated in Friday night’s exhibition loss to Seattle.

Head Coach Mike McCarthy said it’s too early to tell what Harris’ designation will be yet.
