It’s a question brought up all the time by the national media: are high school students getting enough sleep? Locally, ROCORI, Sauk Rapids-Rice, Sartell and St. Cloud high schools all start between 8:15 a.m. and 8:30 a.m.
This week, WJON is featuring several area superintendents to highlight their school district before the 2015-2016 school year kicks off. Today, we highlight Scott Staska, superintendent of ROCORI schools. This is Staska's 14th year in the district.
I have learned in the past few months, that this group of ROCORI athletes can never be counted out.
Tomorrow morning (AM 1390, pregame at 9:50am, 10am tip-off) the ROCORI Spartans boys basketball team (18-11) takes on top seeded Minneapolis Washburn (27-2), in the state 3A quarter finals.
It turns out, maybe it wasn't just that they had better players. Maybe it wasn't such a great coaching job by Mike Rowe and his staff, after all.
And maybe it was not the new broadcast team, either, that was the reason that ROCORI's football team was so dominant this year...
