Football 

What A Game! Our Homecoming game against Benilde-St. Margaret’s did not disappoint. Big plays from seniors AJ Boarman, Chuck Gilbert, and Jaylen Boehm-Peterson allowed our team to hit the ground running and obtain a huge 34-7 lead going into the second half. The team finished the game with a 41-7 win and now holds a 4-1 record. The team is back on the road against St. Louis Park on Friday night at 7pm.

Boys Soccer

Boys soccer had a very solid Homecoming week going 2-1. Their two wins were thrillers as well, with the boys defeating DeLaSalle 1-0 in overtime on Senior Night, and going down 0-1 against Worthington to win 2-1 on Super Soccer Saturday. Unfortunately, the guys lost 0-1 to Columbia Heights. But, there are two more games left before they begin section play. Our boys start off the week by playing an away game against Fridley on Tuesday at 4:30pm. They then have an early wake up call Saturday morning when they play Bloomington Kennedy in the StarDome at 9:30am. 

Girls Soccer

The girls soccer squad has returned to its winning ways, having a record of 6-0 since taking their first regular season loss in three years on Sep. 17. They took some commanding wins during Homecoming week, defeating DeLaSalle 5-0 on Tuesday and demolishing Columbia Heights 9-0 on Thursday. Their Super Soccer Saturday matchup was a little harder than their other games last week, but thanks to a goal from Charlotte Rosen midway through the second half, our squad pulled away from a very talented Totino-Grace team. Girls soccer ends their regular season this week first playing an away game on Tuesday against Fridley at 6:30pm, and then their final game of the season on Thursday against Minneapolis Southwest at Southwest Stadium at 5:30pm.

Volleyball

Homecoming week went quite well for our AHA volleyball program with the girls going 7-1. They began the week last Tuesday, taking care of a solid DeLaSalle team in three sets.  Then on Thursday they suited up against Columbia Heights and took care of them in three sets as well. They also took part in a volleyball tournament over in Chisago Lakes this past Saturday. They did well, earning first place in the tournament, but unfortunately received their first loss of the season against Cambridge-Isanti. The squad looks forward to their away game next Tuesday against Fridley at 6:30pm.

Girls Tennis

Tennis is on a roll right now! They took care of business last week defeating all five teams they played. There was also a great turnout with many students in attendance for the matches last week. Their closest match was against Visitation, where it was tied up at three matches a piece. But, luckily, AHA girls tennis has a closer in Shelby Schnell ‘26, who was able to win the last match of the night to take home the win for our squad. At the moment the girls are undefeated with a 13-0 record and hope to stay this way going into sections. The girls square up against Fridley on Monday at 4pm at the Fridley High School Tennis Courts. This is a big match since a win here could make our girls tennis team conference champions. They also begin their sections on Tuesday where they’ll be playing Southwest over at Valley View Park at 4pm.

Cross Country

AHA cross country has been looking quite sharp the last couple of weeks, putting in the work behind the scenes and getting ready for their big meets in October.  They were able to participate in the Osseo Invitational and looked great with eleven runners earning new personal records and six more being within nine seconds or less of the personal records. Cross country now trains for their last regular season race over at Jordan High School on Oct. 11th at 4pm.

Girls Swim & Dive

Girls Swim & Dive had quite the unorthodox week. They were ready for their meet over at Columbia Heights last Thursday, but unfortunately, their bus never showed up. They were alerted their bus wasn’t going to show, and they were upset to lose the chance to compete. They were still able to have fun that day, playing water polo to pass the time afterwards. Their next meet is this week against Visitation at 5:30pm at the Richfield Middle School Pool.
