LV-based therapeutic horse riding ranch nearing 15 years Riding therapy for special needs children, military veterans BY MICHAEL RICCI • SUN NEWSPAPERS Unlike most forms of physical therapy that are often routine and boring, a Lakeville-based organization has been offering a form that seems to keep clients coming back year after year. Majestic Hills Ranch, 24580 Dakota Ave., in Lakeville, has been offering therapeutic horseback riding for children and young adults with special needs since 1997. Its mission has been to provide these people with an opportunity to acquire a sense of freedom and accomplishment, in addition to increasing their self-esteem while providing hope for their families. In 2010, however, MHR added a second arena, which led to the creation of the organization’s “Heroes on Horseback” program for military veterans. “Majestic Hills Ranch has made the commitment to bring these same benefits to our veterans who have sacrificed so much to keep us safe,” MHR’s website read. “It is a small way of helping repay them for all they have given and all they HORSE RANCH: TO PAGE 10

COMMUNITY BRIEFS Lone Oak Days fall event Sept. 24, 25 at Holz Farm in Eagan The city of Eagan Parks & Recreation Department and Friends of the Farm are hosting Lone Oak Days, 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 24 and Sunday, Sept. 25 at Holz Farm, 4665 Manor Drive. This 1940s fall farm fun event is for all ages and includes barnyard animals, rope making, hayrides, pony rides, kid’s activities and picnic food. There are many free activities but some require tickets purchased at event for $0.50 each. Holz Farm, originally an 80-acre parcel, was settled in the 1870s. The property remained in the family until 1993 with the passing of Otto and Ella Holz. This picturesque farm was set to become one of many residential developments in Eagan. Interested residents began a grassroots campaign to save the site as a living history farm and Eagan city council members showed great foresight by purchasing the farm in 1995 for that use. Friends of the Farm is a nonprofit land stewardship organization staffed by volunteers dedicated to cultivating an appreciation of farm life at Holz Farm. It plans and conducts a wide variety of events that provide educational, entertaining, historical and cultural perspectives appealing to a wide range of interests and ages. Info: 651-675-5500 or

MAC School FROM PAGE 1 possess a wide-range of abilities. “It’s a wonderful opportunity for the kids and staff to give them reinforcement opportunities and I think all the families feel fortunate that their students are here,” said Deb Otto, program supervisor at the MAC School. Applied behavioral analysis relies on trained professionals providing individualized therapy for autistic people. The goal is to reduce the signs and symptoms of autism in a rewardsbased setting where children are frequently rewarded for positive responses to the therapists. The Minnesota Autism School provides students an important component they were lacking in a traditional classroom environment – one-on-one individualized instruction. In most schools, there are dozens of students for every one teacher. At the Minnesota Autism School, each student has a behavior therapist, who spends the entire school day with them. The Minnesota Autism Centers in Woodbury and Minnetonka focus solely on reinforcing ABA principles. “The MAC program provides direct intensive therapy,” Marshall said. “Here, we hope children are learning about math, science and social studies.” In Minnesota, one in 67 children are diagnosed with autism. “With the increase of the rate of autism, so many kids require a behavior component to their day,” said Marshall. “It combines academics with a behavior program.” “Perhaps one child’s issue is compliance. Another’s could be a language delay. Those behavioral pieces can be dealt with by a professional here and then allow that child to be dealt with

The MAC School in Eagan is the first in the country to combine behavior management skills for autistic children with an academic learning component. The 40,000 square-foot school, housed in the former Tesseract School building, was completed gutted this summer. The building was re-modeled with new carpeting, walls, and bright paint colors. (Photo by Matthew Hankey • Sun Newspapers) academically.” The school currently has 65 students, with the goal of reaching a total enrollment of 80 by November. That goal is dependent on hiring qualified staff, said Marshall. Applicants must have college degrees in a related science to health care, such as psychology or sociology. An unforeseen benefit of the school is having dozens of health care profes-

sionals under one roof, Otto said. “Allowing all of them to share that expertise with each other will be really good, too,” she said. The school is housed in the former Tesseract School in Eagan, a 40,000square-foot building that was completely gutted and re-modeled with new carpets, walls and paint this summer. “We’re thrilled with the size of the

building because it allows for the therapeutic reinforcement of our students,” Marshall said. “It works great. We have a large outdoor play area, a gymnasium, music room, library, media room, and a quiet space.” Marshall said the goal is for the students to get the behavior management skills and quality education they MAC SCHOOL: TO PAGE 8

Know the warning signs of cyberbullying BY ART KOSIERADZKI GUEST COLUMNIST Much attention is being paid to bullying in schools, and for good reasons: children need to see school as a safe place, and efforts to create that environment are important. But many kids and teens can still be subject to taunting and trauma through cyberbullying. Cyberbullying is defined officially as “willful and repeated harm inflicted through the use of computers, cell phones and other electronic devices.” And while cyberbullying looks different from the schoolyard variety, it is driven by the same social and emotional dynamics. However, there are some key differences. Cyberbullying vs. In-person Bullying Because victims don’t often know who the bully is or why they’re being targeted, it’s easy to cloak an identity online. This type of anonymity is toxic, and can make victims feel unsafe at any time. Also, an attack can go viral. Large numbers of people can be involved or be aware of a cyber-slam within seconds of the attack. People send photos or forward texts and emails quickly, and including everyone in their address books means that an attack can quickly get out of control. Another difference from inperson attacks comes in the form of insulation from a victim’s reactions. It’s a lot easier to say something mean online that you wouldn’t say in person. Another notable factor in cyberbullying is the permanency of digital information. Unlike an insult delivered in a school hallway, a cyber-slam doesn’t go away after it’s uttered. Because of the pervasiveness of digital information, it’s stored online in some form, usually forever.

Signs a child might be bullied Sometimes, children feel uncomfortable or embarrassed about telling others — particularly their parents of teachers — about cyberbullying being done against them. But there are some common signs that can help alert adults to a problem. Unexplained injuries, such as torn clothing and bruises or scratches, can be a red flag that cyberbullying has led to in-person bullying. If the child or teen hates going out, or finds excuses to stay home, especially from activities involving peers, it can be cause for concern. Cyberbullying can make a child tense, tearful, and defensive, and cause a sudden loss of interest in favorite activities. Another indication of cyberbullying may be the loss of friends, or no friends at all. A child who is being bullied rarely brings friends home and may not spend time at another friend’s house. He or she isn’t invited to parties and shows little incentive to arrange parties, often with the excuse of “nobody will come.” Sometimes, the child feels like she or he isn’t “good enough.” In general, a bullied child is moody and depressed, appearing unhappy or sad with unexpected mood shifts that can range from irritability to sudden outbursts of anger. There may be a change in eating habits, as well as trouble sleeping and frequent nightmares. Tips for kids, teens and young adults For those who are being cyberbullied, or have reason to be concerned that it might happen, there are several strategies that can help. First, make sure that nothing is shared online that can be used against you later. That includes secrets conveyed via email or instant messaging, photos, or videos, even if they seem harm-

less. If you’re being cyberbullied, talk with someone you trust. Reach out to a friend, family member or adult to help you deal with problems. Keep evidence of the cyberbullying with dates, times and descriptions, including printouts or screen shots. Drop the mouse and back away from the computer if you’re attacked. Don’t respond, and don’t pass on attacks aimed at others. Finally, block the person who is cyberbullying you. This means blocking on everything, including your phone and social website accounts. Help kids be smart online (and keep your cool!) When cyberbullying occurs, it’s common to feel angry about what’s happening and protective toward your children. But keeping your calm will help children to do the same, and can defuse the situation more effectively than going on the attack yourself. Watch, listen, learn and communicate. Be aware of what your children are doing online and listen to any concerns they might have. Try to learn about the technologies they’re using, and set clear rules about what’s appropriate. If you know or suspect your children are being cyberbullied, take quick action by documenting the cyberbullying and letting your kids know that bullying isn’t their fault, and that together, you can work it out. Contact law enforcement if the bullying involves criminal behavior such as violent threats, pornography or sexting, invasion of privacy, stalking or hate crimes, or extortion. Some cyberbullying activities meet the standards for civil action, which means an attorney can be brought in, but this should be a last resort. Be persistent while remain-

ing sensitive to your child’s feelings. While an adult at home is still a kid’s best bet at solving the problem, it only worked 34 percent of the time, according to a landmark study from the Youth Voice Project. So experts say do your homework before jumping to conclusions and possibly making matters worse. Cyberbullying can be an ugly part of a childhood or high school experience, but it doesn’t have to create lasting effects. With empathy, diligence, and awareness, the chances of cyberbullying can be lessened, and kids can find the online world a safe place, too. Kosieradzki is an attorney with Sieben, Grose, Von Holtum & Carey and Lakeville resident.

But, she also hopes the school can eventually expand to help so many children who have autism. “We’re very fortunate to have this going on in Minnesota and in our community,” Ripka said. “I hope it gets to the point where we don’t have all these kids on the waiting list. I think what we need to do now is focus on the families and get them the interventions that are needed.” For more information,visit

Ripka believes the MAC School will help increase Jake’s confidence and self-esteem, as well as keep him on par with the academic components that are tailored to his learning style. Ripka said the school made an exception for Jake, who is in third grade, to enroll. “I saw the potential. They all saw the potential in Jake and it just seemed like a team effort to get him to where he needs to be,” said Ripka, referring to Otto, Marshall and Christina Boylen, Jake’s behavior therapist. “This is going to be able to give him the skills to be able to learn

Eagan, Apple Valley Cub Scouts to host new member meetings Cub Scout packs in Apple Valley, Eagan and the metro area will be holding new member Round-Up nights in September to invite boys in Kindergarten through fifth grade to join Cub Scouts. Boys and an adult are encouraged to attend the location of their choice to learn more and sign up on one of the dates and times listed below. Cub Scouts explore a variety of new interests and activities with other boys their age. Participation helps Cubs develop a sense of confidence, teamwork, responsibility and a spirit of service. New this year, all boys in

Kindergarten can join Cub Scouts as Lion Cubs. Lion Cub activities are largely family-oriented and Lion Cubs will also be able to participate in many regular Cub Scout pack activities.

Horse Ranch FROM PAGE 1 have lost.” According to Kris Zieska, the childrens program director, the benefits of therapeutic riding help in more way than one. “The rhythmical movements of a horse walking helps the body in a lot of ways,” Zieska said. “Basically, sitting on a horse while it’s walking helps the mind start regulating better because it’s a very rhythmical beat. It helps [a person’s] brain regulate sequences.” Zieska said it is a form of therapy that has been around for decades, first originating across the Atlantic Ocean. “Therapeutic riding has been around since the ’60s,” Zieska said. “It started in Europe and traveled here.” The timeline for this type of therapeutic riding varies, based on each individual’s condition and circumstances. Typically, riders attend once a week for an hour-long ride. “It depends for our children. We tend to start in May and go through October,” Zieska said. “Some riders do all six months. Some riders do only the summer months, which is about 12 weeks.” For veterans who attend the ranch for therapy, the frequency is much different due to their ailments and other factors.

Born with cerebral palsy, 11-year-old Ryan Kane has been attending Majestic Hills Ranch for therapeutic riding for nearly 10 years, according to his mother, Luann. She said that Ryan has made much improvement over years of attending the ranch, in addition to his other forms of therapy. (Submitted photo)

Eleven-year-old Ryan Kane, who was born with cerebral palsy, has been attending Majestic Hills Ranch in Lakeville for nearly 10 years. Nancy and David Pinke, who paid Ryan a visit at his home, assisted the young man at the ranch for nearly five years. (Submitted photo)

“We have some riders who are here through the VA medical center, so they may come out once or twice,” she said. “They may come out four weeks in a row, and then they might get transferred to another VA.” Though the frequency may differ from one individual to another, the benefits apply to all, according to Zieska, who said the areas include physical, psychological, educational, and social. According to not only Zieska, but also Luann Kane, whose son Ryan has been attending MHR for nearly 10 years, the benefits do apply in everyday life. “It helps with walking. It helps with coordination. It helps with balance,” Kane said. “It helps with a wide variety of things – social, reaching and grabbing things.” But Kane was quick to add the riding is just one of several therapeutic approaches that she is providing for her son, who has cerebral palsy. His other therapies include general therapy, physical therapy, speech therapy, water therapy, and occupational therapy. “It’s one piece that incorporates and build on what else you’re doing. It’s one hour a week or two hours a week just dur-

ing the summer,” Kane said. “That builds on the stuff you work on in all other therapies.” Since the age of 2, when Ryan began riding therapy, Kane said her son has made a great deal of progress with all therapies complementing one another. “When he first started, he could not maintain a sitting position on the horse,” Kane said. “Compared with when he started, he has way better body control and balance when the horse is moving.” She added that her son very much enjoys the ranch, and as long as he continues to enjoy it, he will continue to attend. Individuals at the ranch may have such ailments as cerebral palsy, muscular dystrophy, Down’s syndrome, cancer, autism, ADHD/ADD, paraplegic disabilities, post traumatic stress disorder, and a brain injury or head trauma, while others may be amputees. According to Kris Zieska, MHR is run by two full-time and one part-time employee, equating to a need for volunteers to assist throughout the duration of the ranch’s seasons. “Only two-and-a-half people who are paid,” Zieska said. “The rest are volunteers. We usually have about 200 volunteers per year to help with our riders.” For more information about MHR programs or volunteer opportunities, call 952426-5688.

FTA approves preliminary engineering for Southwest LRT project Engineering step expected to cost around $93 million; freight line realignment needs consideration BY PAUL GROESSEL • SUN NEWSPAPERS The Federal Transmission Authority has given the Metropolitan Council a green light for an early but important step in the Southwest Corridor Light Rail Transit project’s progression. On Friday, Sept. 2, the FTA sent the Met Council a letter saying it could go ahead with preliminary engineering, an initial design phase that could take two years to finish and cost an estimated $93 million, said Mark Fuhrmann, New Starts program director for the Met Council. “We at Met Council are just very excited with this approval by FTA to enter preliminary engineering,” Fuhrmann said. “It really puts us foremost on the FTA New Starts radar.” The FTA’s New Starts program is the

primary financer for local transit projects throughout the country. Fuhrmann said he has been part of eight New Starts projects in his 26-year career, and the preliminary engineering approval is the first big step. The light rail project, which would run through Eden Prairie, Minnetonka, Hopkins and St. Louis Park and link with the Central Corridor line in Minneapolis, is one of only 11 or 12 projects nationwide that have reached the preliminary engineering phase, Fuhrmann said. “So, it’s a pretty exclusive club, and projects don’t become members of that club without very strict and comprehensive scrutiny from FTA. … So, we should be very proud,” Fuhrmann said. During preliminary engineering, the Met Council and other planning groups will complete about 30 percent of the design phase and have several facets. It will finalize station placement and design plans. It will include refined cost estimates, project benefits and impacts, finalize management plans and secure final funding sources. Down the line, if the preliminary engineering is completed to the FTA’s satisfaction, it could approve the final

design phase for the estimated $1.25 billion railway. Construction could begin by 2014, and Fuhrmann said completion estimates have been late 2017 to early 2018. Fuhrmann said he thinks the project will be completed in early 2018. There’s much work to do until then. Some of the things that the FTA asked Met Council to address in preliminary engineering include solidifying the scope of the LRT’s operation and maintenance facility, determine safety feature requirements for street-level railroad crossings and analyze the impact of relocating a freight line that currently operates on part of the planned LRT route. The Twin Cities & Western freight line will need relocating, an estimated $76 million dollar project that The Minnesota Department of Transportation, Hennepin County Regional Rail Authority and city of St. Louis Park have been working on. Hennepin County, St. Louis Park and the MnDOT are at odds regarding the need for further environmental study for the freight realignment. St. Louis Park and city residents have taken the issue to the Minnesota Court of Appeals,

following a MnDOT finding that an Environmental Impact Statement is not necessary for the freight line re-route. Up to this point, the FTA and Met Council have been aware of the freight line’s impact on the LRT project, but the relocation hasn’t been part of Met Council’s responsibility. “To date, our involvement has been not involvement. … We here at Met Council have not been directly involved,” Fuhrmann said. “Because the freight relocation is necessary for the (Met Council) to be able to implement the Southwest LRT project as planned,” the FTA’s approval letter said, “the cost and scope of the freight line relocation must be included in the Southwest LRT project scope and budget, regardless of the funding sources that may be identified to pay for the work.” How exactly the Met Council will include the freight line relocation in its LRT planning and its anticipated $1.25 billion expense will be worked out during regular meetings with the FTA, Fuhrmann and FTA spokesman have said.

Deer hunting deadline application approaching for county parks Hunters who wish to participate in controlled deer hunts at Dakota County Parks must submit an application to the County by Monday, Oct. 10. Applications are available online at, search hunting. Archery hunts are scheduled at various hours and dates in Lebanon Hills Regional Park and in the western section of Spring Lake Park Reserve. Lebanon Hills Regional Park will be closed until noon on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays, Oct. 31 through Nov. 16. The western portion of Spring Lake Park Reserve will be closed all day on Nov. 5–7, 11–13, and 19–21. A shotgun hunt will be held Nov. 1927 at Miesville Ravine Park Reserve. The park will be closed during this time. Controlling deer populations supports natural reforestation and reduces damage to nearby agricultural crops and landscaping. Lower deer populations also improve park habitat for other wildlife that benefit from diverse plant life. Residents also benefit from fewer deer-car collisions and the potential reduced spread of deer-borne diseases. Info: or 952-891-7992 (Johnny Forrest).

Eden Prairie resident and author T.A. Degner will be signing copies of his childhood memoir, “My Brave Little Man,” starting at 2:30 p.m., Sept. 17 at the Barnes & Noble Bookstore, 14880 Florence Trail, Apple Valley. In 1950, a doctor in Duluth wrote in his medical file that a four-year old boy had been admitted to the hospital as a “rather severe behavior problem. ... This is a broken home and the motherchild relationship is not good.” That boy is the author. He had been shuffled from one nesting arrangement to another for all of his short life. First, he had lived with his grandparents on their rustic farmstead in the heart of Minnesota’s north

woods, then with his intellectually disabled mother and a mostly absent alcoholic father, and finally with a boorish relative. In spite of a dysfunctional family life, he had been relatively happy. The real problems started when the author’s mother dropped him and his two younger siblings off at an orphanage. A week later, they ran away to find their mother, and he ended up at the hospital in a straight jacket. Thus began the author’s journey of triumph over multiple misfortunes. Eight years later, while lying on the banks of a river on his adoptive parents’ farm south of Wendell, Minn. and inspired by the many Charles Dickens novels he had read, the author promised God he would share his story with the world. “My Brave Little Man” is the fulfillment of that promise. Degner is a husband, father, and grandfather of fifteen children. Info: or 952-975-9441.

Apple Valley, Rosemount & Eagan Sun-Current – Thursday, Sept. 15, 2011 –

SW Lightrail FROM PAGE 20 Funding for the light rail project is expected to come from four sources. The FTA will pay 50 percent and the rest will be from Minnesota partners – The Counties Transit Improvement Board’s five-county sales tax (30 percent), the Hennepin County Regional Railroad Authority (10 percent) and the state of Minnesota (10

percent). The local groups will pay for the estimated $93 million preliminary engineering phase, but a federal grant could help recoup costs in the future. The next steps in the project will include several moves, Fuhrmann said. The Met Council and other local partners will meet with the FTA on a monthly basis. It will also begin searching for engineering consultants to work on the preliminary engineering work, sending out request for proposals locally and national-

ly. A project management team will also be hired and a central office along the future Southwest line will be set up so the engineering teams, Met Council staff and other planners can all work together, Fuhrmann said. If completed, the Southwest LRT would become part of a growing regional rail landscape, with the Hiawatha Corridor LRT from Minneapolis to The Mall of America, the Northstar Corridor stretching from Big Lake to Minneapolis and the

Central Corridor LRT, currently under construction. The Central Corridor, connecting Minneapolis and St. Paul, would link with the Southwest LRT. Fuhrmann is confident that the FTA’s engineering requirements will be met, and the preliminary engineering work won’t be the Southwest LRT’s last stop. “We’ve done this before, and the partners understand how we have to do the engineering homework before we are in a position to secure the final federal commitment,” Fuhrmann said.

Winter coats a big deal for kids who don’t have them BY JONATHAN YOUNG • SUN NEWSPAPERS Minnesota residents often take coats for granted. But for families who can’t afford them, they are a big deal. That’s why Pilgrim Cleaners, Sun Newspapers, KARE 11, KFAN and Subway are sponsoring the 26th annual Coats for Kids campaign in the Twin Cities. The program allows community members to donate gently used and new coats. Pilgrim cleans the used coats and gives all the coats to charities that distribute them to people in need. Paul Gifford is a spokesperson for Minnetonka-based Hope for the City, one of the organizations that receives coats for distribution. “You can’t believe the joy that these people are showing because they received a coat,” he said. “They’re just happy to have a coat … to keep warm for the winter.” Judy Sprague with Pilgrim Cleaners has been in charge of organizing the drive for 11 years. “It’s unbelievable that there are people in Minnesota who don’t have coats,” Sprague said. Each year Sprague sends letters inviting charities to participate, and they request the number of coats they expect to need. “Hopefully we can fill that demand,” Sprague said. This year Pilgrim aims to collect 10,000 coats. Sprague said the campaign came close to that number a few years ago, but donations have been a little lower in recent

years. Mary Jo Copeland of Sharing and Caring Hands in Minneapolis said the poor have always been there, but she has noticed an increased need for services because of the bad economy the past few years. Copeland estimates her organization gave away approximately 1,500 coats last year. Gifford has also observed an increasing need. “With this current economy it’s just getting tougher all the time,” he said. Though some might see the need as daunting, Copeland sees it as an opportunity. “We all have a lot,” she said. “We must share what we have with others.” Those who wish to donate coats can drop them off at any of the 25 Pilgrim Cleaners locations throughout the metro through Saturday, Oct. 8. Schools can also organize their own collections for the campaign. The school that collects the most coats will earn a Subway party. The charities receiving coats this year are Sabathani Community Center, Sharing and Caring Hands, Ronald McDonald House of the Twin Cities, Catholic Charities of St. Paul and Minneapolis, STEP, CEAP, Lutheran Social Services and Hope for the City. Those who wish to send a cash donation should sent it to the “Coats for Kids Fund” c/o Pilgrim Cleaners, 3217 85th Ave. N., Brooklyn Park, MN 55443.

EDUCATION Two Eastview students display skills at national competition Eastview High School students Brianna Lindstrom and Sahra Mo’allin recently attended the Family, Career and Community Leaders of America’s 2011 National Leadership Conference in Anaheim, Calif. Eastview faculty members and FCCLA advisors Janice Svaren and Mia also attended. This year’s student-originated theme for the annual national meeting was “Imagination in Action.” Throughout the five-day convention, participants examined and discussed several critical issues, including family, school and community violence prevention, physical as well as financial fitness, future career exploration and countless community service projects. More than 3,500 students from all 50 states competed in Students Taking Action with Recognition Events, which are competitions that build proficiency and achievement in leadership and job-related skills in addition to fueling passion to get involved in community and family issues. Both Brianna and Sahra competed in STAR events at this highest level of competition. This honor was earned through receiving gold level rankings at the Minnesota Regional and State confer-

ences held during the 2010-11 school year. There are 28 national STAR Events available to FCCLA students. Brianna Lindstrom, who will be a sophomore at Eastview this year, and is the daughter of Angela and Chad Lindstrom, received a silver medal in the career investigation catagory. Her project focused on exploring the legal profession with an emphasis on family law. Brianna said that going to nationals taught her that FCCLA is more than a club. “It is a life changing experience with great people to help you along the way,” Brianna said in a news release. Sahra Mo’Allin, a junior and the daughter of Jawahir Yusuf and Abdulkadir Hashi, represented her team that also included Kate Moon, daughter of Lisa and Timothy Moon, and Hannah Keuler, daughter of Lori and Richard Keuler. The team competed in food innovation, a new category requiring students to develop and market a food product that meets national dietary recommendations and fits easily into the lifestyle of a busy American family. The team project earned a silver medal. Both students were presented medals at a recognition session honoring all participants at the Anaheim Convention Center on July 14.

APPLE JACK INVITATIONAL The Apple Jack Invitational, one of the state’s top regular-season high school cross country meets, will be Friday, Sept. 16, at Aronson Park in Lakeville. The third-ranked Rosemount boys team and second-ranked Lakeville South girls team are among those scheduled to compete.

Early score sends Irish on their way

Burnsville quarterback Dan Motl turns upfield with Rosemount’s Bryce Wilberding in pursuit during a Sept. 9 South Suburban Conference football game. Rosemount won 38-7 to improve its record to 2-0.

Rosemount goes to 2-0 with 38-7 victory over Burnsville BY MIKE SHAUGHNESSY • SUN NEWSPAPERS Rosemount football coach Jeff Erdmann said he wasn’t expecting his team to win in a blowout. With his team and Burnsville both fielding a lot of new starters, he wasn’t sure what to expect. “We’re playing a lot of guys who are inexperienced, especially on the line, and Burnsville is in the same boat,” Erdmann said. “I thought we were pretty even as far as experience.” So why did the scoreboard show a 31point difference between the teams? Rosemount cruised to a 38-7 home-field victory in a Sept. 9 South Suburban Conference game. Rosemount hasn’t had a losing season since 2004, while Burnsville is seeking its first winning season since 2006. If a team’s confidence is fragile – as might be the case with the Blaze – it doesn’t help to see the opponent score on its first play from scrimmage. And that’s what happened when Rosemount quarterback Nate Lemoine ran untouched 65 yards for a touchdown that sent the Irish off to the races. Rosemount (2-0) led 24-0 by halftime, and Burnsville (0-2) didn’t get on the scoreboard until seven seconds remained. “Their athletes made plays, and we made too many mistakes,” Burnsville coach Tyler Krebs said. “We did some good things, but when you give up a 65yard touchdown on the first play of the game, that’s a tough way to start. “And this is a tough conference. We don’t get to play pre-season games, so we have a short time to get ready.” With a new head coach and mostly new staff, Burnsville expected some growing pains. Rosemount, coming off a Prep Bowl appearance in 2010, expects to find out how good it really is over the next three weeks, when it plays Prior Lake, Lakeville

North and Lakeville South. Lemoine, making his second varsity start, proved especially difficult for Burnsville to contain. He rushed for 110 yards – all in the first half – and one touchdown, and completed five of nine passes for 107 yards and two scores. The opening touchdown was a simple quarterback keeper, a staple of Rosemount’s veer-option offense. “The same play we’ve been running for six years,” Erdmann said. The Irish’s Andy Gustafson scored on a 5-yard run later in the first quarter. Rosemount’s lead expanded in the second quarter on a 37-yard field goal by Logan Lindberg and an 11-yard touchdown pass from Lemoine to Tyler Liermann. In the third quarter, Lemoine threw a 22-yard touchdown pass to Charlie Broback. A blocked punt led to a 4-yard touchdown run by Corey Narveson in the fourth quarter. Burnsville’s touchdown came late in the fourth quarter on Ben Gillies’ 4-yard run. Burnsville, which was outgained 321139, crossed midfield only on its first and

final possessions. Junior running back Jamond Bailey led the Blaze in rushing with 41 yards on five carries. Erdmann said he wanted to look at film before making any definitive statements about Rosemount’s progress, but it’s hard to imagine him being displeased about a 20 start in which his team has outscored opponents 66-13. “We didn’t have any turnovers, so that’s a good sign,” he said. “We did have, I think, three situations where we had substitution problems. That’s the kind of stuff that happens when you have an inexperienced team. “We talked about it, and we’ll work on it. There’s always stuff to work on. In our conference, you have to get better every day because everybody else is.” Continual improvement also is Burnsville’s goal, Krebs said. “Our offense moved the ball at times. Our defense made a couple of big stops on third down to get off the field,” he said. “Our special teams were better, even though we had a punt blocked. But we FOOTBALL: TO NEXT PAGE

Eastview boys excel at putting the ball in the net Undefeated soccer team faces big challenges in the upcoming week BY MIKE SHAUGHNESSY • SUN NEWSPAPERS Those who complain there’s not enough scoring in soccer maybe were just watching the wrong team. One reason the Eastview boys won their first six games and were ranked seventh in Class AA is that they score in bunches. The Lightning was averaging almost four goals a game. “We have a very skilled offensive team, coupled with very strong goalkeeping,” said Eastview coach Scott Gustafson. And that combination gives the Lightning a chance to do some damage in a conference and section that recently have been ruled by Apple Valley. Gustafson expected some major tests for the Lightning this week. Eastview played host to fifth-ranked Bloomington Jefferson on Tuesday and travels to fourth-ranked Eagan at 7 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 15. Those opponents also figure to be tested by Eastview’s firepower. Junior forward Mathew Gweh is one of the metro area’s top scorers with 11 goals and four assists in Eastview’s first five games. He had four goals as the Lightning defeated Bloomington Kennedy 6-2 on Sept. 8 and scored both of his team’s goals in a 2-1 victory over Northfield on Sept. 10. This is Gweh’s first season with the Lightning varsity. Minnesota State High School League rules required him to sit out last season after he transferred to Eastview. “He’s an impact player, one of those special kids that a coach gets to work with only once in a great while,” Gustafson said. Senior captain Brennan Espinda EASTVIEW SOCCER: TO NEXT PAGE


Apple Valley, Rosemount & Eagan Sun-Current – Thursday, Sept. 15, 2011 –

Football FROM PREVIOUS PAGE have things to shore up in all those areas.” Burnsville will try to earn its first victory of the season at 7 p.m. Friday, Sept. 16, at Bloomington Kennedy. Rosemount, meanwhile, travels to Prior Lake. “Before the season I thought Prior Lake [1-1 overall, 1-0 SSC] would be one of the best teams in our conference,” Erdmann said.

Wayzata 28, Eagan 7 Defending state Class 5A champion Wayzata is known for its powerful ground game, but the Trojans showed fans at Wildcat Stadium they’re not landlocked. Wayzata passed for 229 of its 415 yards of total offense in its non-conference victory Sept. 9. Eagan (0-2) stayed in the game, trailing 14-7 late in the third quarter before Wayzata added two more touchdowns in the fourth. Eagan senior quarterback Drew Bauer rushed for 68 yards. Senior running back Michael Busch gained 45 yards and scored the Wildcats’ touchdown on a 2yard run in the third quarter. Alex Mangan, Cody Grovenstein and Mark Woodcock recovered fumbles for Eagan, and Aaron Roundtree intercepted a pass.

The Wildcats return to South Suburban Conference play when they face Eastview (0-2) at home at 7 p.m. Friday, Sept. 16.

LV South 28, Eastview 14 Eastview fell behind 21-0 by halftime and couldn’t recover in the Sept. 9 South Suburban Conference game. A 35-yard pass from Ryan Reger to Kenyon Phillips in the third quarter brought Eastview within 14 points, but Lakeville South added another touchdown in the fourth. A 1-yard pass from Reger to Adam Moorse closed the scoring. Eastview (0-2) will try for its first win of the season when it goes to Eagan at 7 p.m. Friday, Sept. 16. Eagan also is 0-2.

LV North 45, AV 19 A multifaceted Lakeville North offense put up 41 points, and the Panthers also chipped in two safeties in their Sept. 9 victory at Apple Valley. The Panthers (2-0), ranked seventh in Class 5A, led 19-0 in the second quarter before the Eagles got on the board on a 6yard touchdown run by Matt Thomas. Apple Valley had two touchdown passes in the fourth quarter. Mitch Hechsel scored on a 23-yard pass from Thomas, and sophomore Tommy Singer threw a 58-yard pass to Dustin Fronk for the final touchdown. The Eagles travel to fourth-ranked Lakeville South at 7 p.m. Friday, Sept. 16.

Notebook: Eagan-Eastview girls game part of big soccer week BY MIKE SHAUGHNESSY • SUN NEWSPAPERS Two conferences dominate this week’s state Class AA girls soccer rankings. The Lake Conference had four of its five teams in the top 10, with Wayzata and Edina occupying the top two spots. Meanwhile, the South Suburban Conference has three top-10 teams lined up in the fifth through seventh spots – Lakeville North, Eastview and Eagan. Another indication of the South Suburban’s strength is that six of the league’s 10 teams had overall records of 52 or better going into this week’s play. Eagan was last week’s No. 1-ranked team but dropped to seventh after losing 10 to Lakeville South on Sept. 8. Lakeville North and Eastview started the week tied for first in the South Suburban at 2-0. Eagan (1-1 SSC, 5-1 overall) might be in a must-win situation – as least where the conference race is concerned – when it plays host to Eastview at 5 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 15.

The Wildcats have had balanced scoring; Eagan’s 14 goals are distributed among seven players, with Marissa Ganske and Roselyn Anderson tied for the team lead with three each. Senior goalkeeper Kristen Knutson has allowed only two goals in six games and has four shutouts. Eastview is 6-0 overall and, thanks to a couple of eight-goal performances, is averaging more than four goals a game. Senior Paris Sanders leads the Lightning with seven goals, while seniors Leah Nesheim and Taryn MacMillan have five each. Emily Sutliff, another senior, has four goals. The second game of the EaganEastview soccer doubleheader (which starts at 7 p.m.) could be equally interesting. The fifth-ranked Lightning boys are a high-scoring team that started the season 6-0. Seventh-ranked Eagan is 4-1-1, led by high-scoring forward A.J. Albers, who has nine goals in his team’s first six games.

Eastview soccer FROM PREVIOUS PAGE Banick has four goals and five assists through six games. Junior defender Mike Bonderud, senior forward Joe Karam and senior midfielder Matt Miller are also among the Lightning’s top players. The Lightning does not have a lot of experience on defense, but junior Sam Ruelas and sophomore Treston Kederer are goalkeepers who have played highlevel club soccer. Gustafson has used both goalkeepers and said he will continue to do so unless one begins to clearly outplay the other. “No matter which one plays, I know our goalkeeping won’t cost us a game,” Gustafson said. “And either of them is capable of winning a game for us. They’re that talented.” Eastview had a shutout streak of more than 300 minutes before Kennedy broke through with a couple of goals in the Sept.

8 game. The Lightning scored three goals in the final 20 minutes to pull away. Gustafson saw it as an opportunity to remind his team it can’t let up. “Our conference [South Suburban] is pretty solid, top to bottom,” he said. “Kennedy was predicted to finish near the bottom of the conference and they gave us a tough time. They put us on our heels.” Although the Lightning has just five seniors on the roster, the team does feel a sense of urgency. Several Eastview underclassmen (Gweh, Bonderud and the two goalkeepers) also play for the Minnesota Thunder Academy, which is part of the U.S. Soccer development program. By next year they might have to choose between the academy program – a full-time commitment – and the high school team. “In the long run, [the academy program] will be more beneficial to them because they can train year-round and play stronger competition,” Gustafson said. “It hurts me as a high school coach because I’ll essentially have two graduating classes.”

Growing pains evident with Eagles boys soccer BY MIKE SHAUGHNESSY • SUN NEWSPAPERS Apple Valley doesn’t have a lot of experience with bouncing back from losses, and it’s a skill the Eagles would just as soon not have to learn. But even a soccer program as accomplished as Apple Valley’s can’t be dominant every year. This year the Eagles are finding their way with a new cast of characters. “I still think we have a lot of potential,” senior captain Derek Smith said after the Eagles lost 2-0 to Bloomington Jefferson on Sept. 8 in the Challenge Cup semifinals at the National Sports Center in Blaine. “Our last game [a scoreless tie against Lakeville North], I think we had most of the play. This game [against Jefferson], the shots were 10-10. “We have good players. We just need to keep working hard.” The Eagles, 10th in last week’s state Class AA rankings, were 4-2-1 overall after defeating Mankato East 4-3 in the Challenge Cup third-place game Sept. 10. Apple Valley’s state-record 48-game winning streak ended with a 2-1 overtime loss to Holy Family on Aug. 29. Jefferson was the first conference opponent to defeat the Eagles since 2008, when they were members of the Lake Conference. Apple Valley coach Chuck Scanlon also said he thought the Eagles had the better of the play against Lakeville North, a team that was 4-0-2 going into this week’s play.

Jefferson controlled play early in the Challenge Cup semifinal, including a sequence in which Jaguar shots hit the crossbar twice within five seconds. Apple Valley steadied itself and had a chance to take the lead with a long-range blast from Sean Lang. But he, too, hit the crossbar. Jefferson scored both of its goals in the second half. After the Jefferson game, Smith echoed what Scanlon told the team – nothing is seriously wrong, but everybody needs to be a little sharper. Smith said he didn’t believe the Eagles’ success the last two seasons – Apple Valley is two-time defending Class AA champion – was putting undue pressure on this year’s team. Apple Valley returned no starters this year; Smith, who recently returned to midfield after starting the season at sweeper, was a reserve last season. “We watched those guys the last two years and we’ve been waiting for our chance,” he said. “But we have to be ready to play every game because all of our games are tough.” After not scoring in its previous two games, Apple Valley’s offense gained some traction against Mankato East. Smith had a goal and two assists. Junior captain Connor Flanagan had a goal and assist. Kyle Levac and Lang also scored. Apple Valley played Rosemount on Sept. 13 and will play host to Prior Lake in a South Suburban Conference game at 5 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 15, at Johnny Cake Ridge Park. – Thursday, Sept. 15, 2011 – Apple Valley, Rosemount & Eagan Sun-Current

Third-ranked Irish boys will race for Apple Jack title BY MIKE SHAUGHNESSY • SUN NEWSPAPERS The third-ranked Rosemount boys cross country team will lead a strong boys field at the Apple Jack Invitational on Friday, Sept. 16, in Lakeville. The Irish, who defeated their closest competition by 29 points at the Irish Invitational on Sept. 2, will race against fourth-ranked Edina, among other teams, in Lakeville. Varsity races at the Apple Jack Invitational at Aronson Park begin at 5:05 p.m. for boys and 5:35 for girls. “There is a lot of work needed to get done [before Friday’s meet], but the guys are eager to improve and compete,” Rosemount coach Chris Harder said. Rosemount seniors Nathan Rock (10 minutes, 5.6 seconds) and Calvin Lehn (10:10.3) finished second and third individually in the 3,200-meter race at the Irish Invitational. Junior Trevor Capra (seventh) and Chandler Dye (10th) also finished in the top 10. The Apple Jack Invitational girls varsity race also could be closely contested, with No. 2-ranked Lakeville South, No. 4 Andover, No. 5 Prior Lake and No. 8 Eagan scheduled to compete. Also in the field is Shakopee, which features two-time defending state Class AA individual champion Maria Hauger. Rosemount is on the fringe of the Class AA girls rankings and could be a factor at the Apple Jack Invitational, particularly if senior Tori Grund is able to race. Grund was held out of the Irish Invitational girls race because of some lower leg problems. Eagan finished second to Lakeville South at the Dakota Classic on Sept. 2, and Wildcats junior Danielle Anderson won the 3,200-meter race in 11:38.2. Eagan senior Alanna Stangl (seventh) also finished in the top 10.

Eastview boys 1st, 2nd Eastview had a victory and secondplace finish in its first two boys cross country meets of the season. The Lightning, ranked eighth in Class AA, was second to Eden Prairie at the Bauman/Rovn Invitational Sept. 8 in Minnetrista. Senior Ken Hoffman was eighth in the 5K race in 16:36.5. Junior Nick Oelke finished ninth in 16:37.7 and David Salter, a senior, was 11th in 16:43.1. Eastview ran to victory at the Rolf Melby Invitational on Sept. 2 at St. Olaf College, finishing 28 points ahead of runner-up Owatonna. Hoffman, Oelke and Salter were 11th, 13th and 15th individually. The Lightning will run at the Rochester Mayo Invitational on Thursday, Sept. 15.

AV girls win in Faribault Apple Valley won a close four-way race for the girls championship at the Faribault Invitational on Sept. 9. The Eagles scored 98 points, two fewer than Stillwater, which went into the meet ranked 12th in Class AA. Lakeville North (110 points) and White Bear Lake (111) were third and fourth. Seniors Abbey Singleton (sixth, 15:19.1), Alexa Nelson (10th, 15:41.7) and Natalie Webb (18th, 15:58.7) finished among the top 20 individuals in the 4K race, as did junior Meredith Jones (20th, 16:03.2). Shanni Moorse (44th), Madison Ihrke (81st) and Camille Sjoquist (88th) also ran for Apple Valley.

Cross country notes • Apple Valley was second in the boys meet and third in the girls race at the Dakota Classic on Sept. 2. “Our mostly young and inexperienced kids competed well,” said Apple Valley boys coach Rollie Greeno, whose team finished 14 points behind Lakeville South. Junior Nick Hughes (10:45.9 for 2K) finished third in the Dakota Classic. Senior Alex Brandel (11:08.5) finished ninth and sophomore Jack Crippes (11:08.5) was 13th. • Eagan junior Sidney Speir set a school record for 3,200-meter cross country races when he won the boys individual championship at the Dakota Classic in 10:02.3. Speir cut 22 seconds from the previous school record held by Cole Toepfer, now running for the University of MinnesotaDuluth. Speir also was 22 seconds ahead of the runner-up at the Dakota Classic. • Burnsville senior Cole O’Brien, last year’s state Class AA individual runnerup, was fourth in last week’s state rankings. He won the season-opening Minneapolis South Invitational on Sept. 1 at St. Catherine’s, finishing the 5K race in 17:30. The Blaze’s Abdul Salan was second in 17:37. Erik Kollasch, Erik Lindstrom, Shawn Wong and Matt Connelly finished seventh through 10th as Burnsville won the team championship. Burnsville also went to the Marshfield (Wis.) Invitational on Sept. 3, finishing 12th individually. O’Brien was fourth individually. • Burnsville ninth-grader Vivian Hett won the girls race at the Minneapolis South Invitational. She had a 4K time of 16:01. The Blaze’s Rissa Lane, a junior, placed sixth. Hett finished seventh in the Faribault Invitational on Sept. 9, with ninth-grader Jane Koch placing 11th.
