Carly Christenson, 14, died of Influenza A Tuesday afternoon. Three Fridley-St. Louis Park girls basketball games set for Tuesday evening will be played another day.
A death from flu on the St. Louis Park High School JV girls basketball team prompted postponement of three games with Fridley teams Tuesday. Carly Christenson, a St. Louis Park teen stricken with Influenza A since Dec. 20, died Tuesday afternoon, according to WCCO and a family statement on a church Facebook page. All three games between girls teams from Fridley High School and St. Louis Park High School are postponed, according to the Fridley High School website. The JV, 9A and Varsity games were set for 5:45 p.m. and 7:15 p.m. at St. Louis Park High School.

The May 22, 2011 twister that hit Fridley started its day's work in St. Louis Park.
One year ago Tuesday, a tornado touched down in St. Louis Park near the intersection of highways 394 and 100, eventually moving north into Golden Valley, Fridley and Minneapolis. St. Louis Park was spared the worst of the twister, as the storm intensified as it moved into Minneapolis, causing widespread damage in North Minneapolis. Still, there was damage in the Park. Power was knocked out at the Sabes Jewish Community Center. The Nestle Healthcare Nutrition facility sprung a gas leak and sustained roof damage. And the Cedar Trails Condominiums in the 4500 block of Cedar Lake Road took the brunt of the storm in SLP, as a number of units were hit by fallen trees and other debris. This included the residence of Victor Valdez, who was inside …

Columbia Heights' football fortunes didn't change Friday night.
Saturday, October 15, 2011
A tough season for the Columbia Heights High School football team continued on Friday night in St. Louis Park. The Hylanders (0-7) fell to the Orioles (3-4) 35-0 as the home team powered its way to a more than two-to-one advantage in total yards (421 to 202). St. Louis Park did most of its damage on the ground, piling up 350 rushing yards and four touchdowns on 40 carries. Columbia Heights was able to get a few drives going, but the Hylanders faltered when they got down field. A number of dropped passes, as well as one interception thrown by senior quarterback Nick Liebelt, contributed to the long night. The Hylanders finish the regular season on Wednesday night with a road game against St. Francis.

The Panthers drubbed the Orioles 34-6.
In a battle of SLPs, Spring Lake Park High School came out on top Friday night. The Panthers ruined homecoming for that other SLP—St. Louis Park—by rolling to a 34-6 victory. Spring Lake Park held the Orioles to only 179 total yards and dominated the line of scrimmage all night. At first, it looked like the game would be a lot closer. After Spring Lake Park tallied the contest’s first points on a first quarter touchdown run from senior Jordan Thimmesch-Slepica, St. Louis Park answered with a touchdown drive of its own. A missed extra point left the game at 7-6 in favor of Spring Lake Park, which was the score after the first quarter. Rather then let the Orioles hang around, Spring Lake Park used the second quarter to build some breathing …

The Tigers could muster little offense against a stingy Orioles defense.
It wasn’t just the two turnovers that did in the Fridley High School football team Friday night. It was the timing of those turnovers. The key play in the Tigers 20-7 road loss to St. Louis Park High School was a first-quarter interception thrown by Tigers sophomore quarterback Nick Rathke that Orioles senior safety Jordan Young returned 90 yards for a touchdown. The play ended Fridley’s first drive of the game and set the tone for the whole night. Another Rathke interception deep in Orioles territory snuffed out a potential fourth-quarter rally for Fridley with about three minutes left and the Tigers trailing by 13. Fridley got the ball back, but by then the clock was nearly at zero. Despite the two costly interceptions, Rathke was still …
