Soccer stardom at SANB: “No one knew us, now everybody does” ⚽ 🏆
It’s an incredible story, with a storied history. 

Both girls and boys soccer teams advanced to state championships at U.S. Bank Stadium last Friday where they both played St. Paul Academy. They were equally rivaled teams competing for the state title. 

In a huge win, the girls soccer team won the first ever state championship in any girls’ sport in SAVHS history. The boys soccer team, playing immediately after the girls, took second place at state. Read more about their story.
