This is a look back at some of the people and teams making news in the St. Croix Valley 10 years ago, as reported in the Stillwater Gazette.
Boys basketball — As part of an eight-game stretch of road games and playing without three double-figure scorers (Josh Rose, Jake Meyers and Miles Kane), the Stillwater boys’ basketball team defeats Minneapolis Southwest (77-56) and Richfield (61-51) to win the four-team Edina Holiday Tournament.
Boys hockey — Making the most of its 12 shots on goal, the Stillwater boys’ hockey team hands the Blake Bears just their second loss of the season with a 4-2 upset victory at the St. Croix Valley Rec Center. Phil Fox scores two goals for the Ponies, who also receive a goal each from Justin Williams and Tyler Magill. Kyle Kraemer finishes with 17 saves in goal for Stillwater.
