Richfield bank robbed at gunpoint Tellers ‘just handled it like a business transaction’ BY ANDREW WIG SUN NEWSPAPERS The Federal Bureau of Investigation and Richfield Police Department are investigating an armed bank robbery that occurred Friday morning. The lone, masked robber entered First National Bank of the Lakes at 9:20 a.m., approached the teller counter, displayed a handgun and demanded cash from two separate tellers before fleeing southbound on Penn Avenue in a white sedan, according to the FBI. The bank was quiet and there were no lines as the robber walked straight to the tellers and demanded the money, said a bank official, who was not in the building at the time of the incident but spoke on behalf of the bank. He asked that his name be withheld due to the ongoing investigation. ROBBERY: TO PAGE 2

Census Bureau surveys show economic diversity in neighboring western suburbs BY PAUL GROESSEL – SUN NEWSPAPERS Results of U.S. Census Bureau surveys released in late October show an array of economic characteristics among four cities in the Twin Cities western suburbs. The American Community Survey results were released Oct. 27 and reflect three-year estimates of data that was collected between Jan. 1, 2008, and Dec. 31, 2010. The survey results take stock of economic, educational, employment and other housing details for cities, states and the country. This survey is taken every year, compared to the U.S. Census, which is taken every ten years and is considered the official population count for the United States. Here’s a breakdown of some of the employment and income statistics for Eden Prairie, Edina, Richfield and Bloomington. (All data, except city populations, was taken from the U.S. Census

Bureau’s 2008-2010 American Community Survey and was accessed through searching the online American Fact Finder, factfinder2.census.gov.)

Richfield Richfield showed some of the highest unemployment and poverty rates among the four cities. It’s unemployment rate, 7.8 percent among those in the labor force, was higher than the state’s 5 percent. Approximately 73 percent of Richfield residents 16 and older were considered in the labor force. It also has a higher poverty rate than the other three cities. Overall, 12.6 percent of Richfield residents lived in poverty, according to the results, and 7.8 percent of families were in poverty. Richfield’s population was an estimated 35,228 and had 14,957 households, which ran the income gamut. The median household income was $48,736 per year.

Approximately 75 percent of Eden Prairie residents 16 and older were considered in the labor force. Eden Prairie’s population was an estimated 60,092 and had 23,189 households. Although the median income was about $86,000, nearly half of the households made more than $100,000 per year. Overall, 6.4 percent of Eden Prairie residents lived in poverty, according to the results, and 5 percent of families were in poverty.

Richfield household earnings: - Less than $10,000 – 8.3 percent - $10,000 to $14,999 – 4.1 percent - $15,000 to $24,999 – 11.9 percent - $25,000 to $34,999 – 11.8 percent - $35,000 to $49,999 – 14.5 percent - $50,000 to $74,999 – 18.8 percent - $75,000 to $99,999 – 13 percent - $100,000 to $149,999 – 12.2 percent - $150,000 to $199,999 – 4.1 percent - $200,000 or more – 1.3 percent

I may have been brainwashed But, really, books and literacy are good When I was a kid, I would frequently mispronounce words. Frequently. I bet there’s a study done by someone more educated than I on the subject clearly delineating why and how this works, but I’m chalking it up to the massive amount of reading I did as a child coupled with the obverse statistic showing the time spent socializing or speaking with other people. I learned to read and in the process picked up words that I’d never heard spoken before and thus did not know the correct pronunciation. If anyone were to need to shoulder the burden of this affectation, I would place that blame squarely on the shoulders of my mother for one particular reason: She made us read. Well, maybe “made” isn’t the right word for it. Instead, she blackmailed us with reading. Let me set the scene. It’s midafternoon, and my siblings and I are home from school but lacking any real interest in doing anything productive. Enter my mother. “Whoever’s not reading is get-

ting chores.” Suddenly we’re all literary enthusiasts. Maybe it’s that childhood conditioning to view reading, books and overall literacy as workavoided rather than as a chore itself that drove me to become a lifelong lover of literature. After all, post-high school, I went on to an institution of higher education and earned a degree in English, and I work with weaving words on a semi-daily basis. I believe in the idea that being able to effectively communicate is a key factor in getting ahead in this world. One could make the argument that the speed of communication and transmission of information in this day and age has made it impossible to be anything but an improv artist. We’re forced by the immediacy of our culture to think on our feet and get responses out more and more quickly. And what’s the advice professional authors so often give to

aspiring writers? Read. I’d offer that it doesn’t matter where you want to go career-wise; being able to communicate effectively is a required skill for any industry. Those siblings I mentioned went on to work in advertising, marketing and the culinary arts. For those of you who hoped I would make it through this column without making it even slightly self-referential, I’m sorry, but better luck next time. When I was thinking of the best way to tie the importance of literacy to one of my favorite topics – community involvement – I was sent a message about an organization that promotes reading and community all in one swell foop. Little Free Libraries are, to be simplistic, little wooden boxes full of books. With me so far? These little boxes are built, filled with books and put up on private property where people can access them, taking a book and leaving a book. Honestly, I think it’s genius. And not because we lack opportunities to find books in our communities. The Hennepin, Dakota and Anoka county library systems are laudable in their own right for the programs, services and books they provide to the communities.

Sure one can donate money or lobby for larger pieces of the municipal budget pie for the local library. I’m not saying residents of any community shouldn’t patronize their local library ‘cause they certainly should. But there are those who are unable to do these things. Putting a small library at the end of any street brings the books to the potential readers. There are already locations in St. Louis Park, Minneapolis and St. Paul, among others. Putting one up is as simply as, well, putting one up. The really nifty thing about this sort of movement is the ownership. The whole process requires the participants to, well, participate in a much larger function than if they were simply a user of one of the county libraries. There’s an inherent trust in leaving something out for someone else to literally take. That trust is essential, I think, to the development of any community, and anything we can do, especially something as self-maintaining as a program like this, is great.

In 2010, we traveled to Appleton to have Thanksgiving with my mom, sister and my sister’s future in-laws. This year, we will stay in Minnesota for Turkey Day. But returning to the point of the column. This Thanksgiving will be the first time my wife and I host her mother’s side of the family for the annual dinner. Now, we will not be accommodating her entire family. When fully assembled, her mom’s side could nearly field a game day roster for the Vikings. At most, we will be hosting a dozen people in our modest-sized home. The quarters will be cozy, but that’s how holidays should be. The food assignments will be divided among our guests to alleviate the cooking burden for my wife and I. I’m not sure what

our assignment will be, but I do know I will thoroughly enjoy the smorgasbord that will likely fill our table. With the numerous diet fads and health and wellness awareness that has permeated our society, overblown and unhealthy holiday meals should be enjoyed for what they are. It would be fatalistic to indulge daily in the kinds of foods that comprise a holiday spread, not too mention expensive. But don’t give in to the guilt you may feel for going back for seconds, thirds, what have you. It may seem uncouth to encourage overeating, but if you’re healthy enough to do it, more power to you. Whether we want to acknowledge it, many of us will have too much to eat over the holidays. All I’m saying is embrace it, own it and don’t make it a habit. We should be thankful for a couple days a year: We have the ability to overindulge in delicious foods. I know I will, even if only for a few days. But, it could lead to another first for the upcoming year – a gym membership.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Thanks for supporting Richfield football To the editor: The Richfield Football Quarterback Club would like to thank the Richfield community for their strong support of the Richfield Middle and High School football programs this year. The players and the

parents are very grateful for the wonderful fan support at the games and also for all of the fund raising support by local businesses as well as family, friends, and neighbors! The new artificial turf field is a tremendous asset to the community, so thanks to the Richfield School Board for a fantastic improvement. Mary Allen Richfield

U of M president addresses Rotary Club of Burnsville Provides update on first four months in position, plans for school’s future BY MICHAEL RICCI – SUN NEWSPAPERS As the 16th president of the University of Minnesota, Eric Kaler jokingly said he was channeling that other 16th president, prompting another to plead that he and his wife do not attend the theater. Following this lighthearted introduction, UMN President Eric Kaler spoke before members of the Burnsville, Apple Valley, and Eagan Rotary Clubs, as well as members of the Dakota County Chamber of Commerce 12 p.m. Monday, Oct. 31, at the Nicollet Inn, 14204 Nicollet Ave., Burnsville. Kaler provided an update on his first four months in his new position as president and discussed his vision and priorities for the university in research, teaching and outreach. One point of emphasis made by Kaler centered on students in the past and the dramatic changes that have occurred to right a wrong.

‘We must strive to keep the U accessible to all qualified Minnesota students, regardless of their family income’ “Let’s be honest, 15 or 20 years ago, the undergraduate experience at the U was not all that it should have been,” Kaler said. “We know from alumni surveys that people who went to college at the U felt disengaged, and that was reflected in poor retention rates and awful graduation rates.” But, Kaler said, this has changed very dramatically. The president proceeded to reference two students who have stood out in their respective fields, but only as a teaser. “Two special students? Sure. But our entire incoming freshman class is totally special,” he said. “It is, by all measures, the best qualified group of first year students in U history.” Kaler added that the U had around

40,000 applicants this year and enrolled around 5,400. He also indicated that the ACT scores this year were the highest ever. Turning his attention to the university’s presence as the state’s only public research university, Kaler stressed the importance of such a facility. “Why should you care about having a research university in your backyard? Because all of the university’s campuses are homes for the innovation that makes Minnesota work, that contributes to the success of those 20 Fortune 500 companies in the state, but mostly to the hundreds of start-ups and thousands of small businesses.” Kaler then outlined the key principle of his administration: excellence, access,

diversity and research. Kaler desires for the university to be synonymous with other research universities, such as Berkeley, Michigan, North Carolina and the University of California-Los Angeles. “We must strive to keep the U accessible to all qualified Minnesota students, regardless of their family income,” he said. With regard to diversity, Kaler said, “We must work with our K-12 system to close the alarming decline in sciences and math teaching and learning, and the deplorable achievement gap between white students and children of color.” Concluding with the topic of research and its importance, the president said this is a “our investments in our research enterprise drive a high rate of return.” Kaler cited statistics that indicated the UMN’s annual economic impact on the sate was equal to the combined impact of all eight research universities in the Boston metropolitan area. “Last year our impact was estimated at $8.6 billion,” he said. “According to a 2003 study done by a Boston consulting firm … the economic impact of all those schools was about $7 billion annually.”

ship first puts the cart out in front of the horse. Q: Should parents care what their children think of them? A: Children are very emotional. If they don’t like somebody’s decision they suddenly don’t like the person. That’s just the way children are constructed emotionally. No, I don’t think adults should be concerned in the least about that sort of stuff. Q: Edina is a very high-achieving community. How can Edina parents encourage achievement without stepping over the line into enabling? A: Children who are taught proper character values in the home are going to do their best in school. There’s no evidence whatsoever that if you don’t attend a gifted and talented program you’re going to be a failure at life. I think that there’s a lot of anxiety driving American parenting today, not just in Edina, but also all over America. I think that parents are primarily invested in developing their child’s skills. Without intending for this to be the outcome, the child’s character education begins to suffer. My contention is if you focus on character, and doing your best in all situations is a character trait, your children will do their best. If you do a lot of enabling when your children are young, your children may get better grades than they would have on their own, but they will be less well equipped as adults to deal with adult realities. Q: Parents write to you with questions all the time. Why do parents need guidance? A: The questions that parents ask today tend to be questions that reflect problems that parents for the most part didn’t deal with 50 years ago. They didn’t have these kinds of problems because they approached the raising of children with a completely different attitude. The

attitude was simply this: You will do what I tell you to do. All the research indicates that children in the 1950s were a lot happier. The rate of childhood and teen depression was about 10 times lower than it is today. We grew up in families in which disobedience simply wasn’t allowed and wasn’t going to be tolerated if we experimented with it. I am a psychologist, so it allows me to say this with credibility. We’ve been taking our marching orders in American parenting from people in the mental health professions – psychologists, psychiatrists and to some degree, pediatricians – and it’s time we realize that this advise these people have been giving, these very intellectual people, has not been good advice. What distinguishes me is that I am one of those people in terms of qualifications and license, but I go around the country and say ‘Look, here’s what your great grandmother would have told you.’ I don’t ever sound like a psychologist. What I’m putting people back in touch with is just common sense. It’s common sense to raise a child properly.

See the top toys and games for 2011 as the National Toy Store Day is celebrated on Saturday, Nov. 12, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. at Hub Hobby Center in Richfield. Activities will include a balloon artist and face painter. Last year’s programs included crafts, scavenger hunts, as charitable donations were accepted. Toy stores throughout the nation will use the day to mark the kick-off to the holiday shopping season.

Right Way Painting Solutions After one of the most brutal winters we have encountered in the past 30 years, we have all found things that need repair or replacement on our homes. Many of us have needed to put off work being done to our homes do to economic hard times. Many of us also put off projects to save money in case things got worse. Our home values have gone down which makes it hard to even think about selling our homes. The reality is that we have to keep our property in good shape to maintain our values. Painting the exterior of our homes is by far the best value to preserving our wood surfaces and windows. We can also dramatically change the appearance of the inside of our homes by updating colors. Painting woodwork is a very affordable option compared to replacing old trim around our homes. In many older homes our windows are still good, but the old stain and varnish are not holding up any more. You can save thousands of dollars by painting these windows verses replacing windows. Updating your

basement family room can also be as easy as painting the paneling. I’m Paul Moore from Rightway Painting Solutions. I’ve been in the painting business for over 20 years. Being a former Shop Teacher, I have a good background in finishing and wood replacement. We do both residential and commercial painting. We do work for several Town Home Associations, Nursing Homes and Residential Properties. We give our customers great value by being able to not just paint. We replace or repair wood, repair and reglaze older windows and reside areas that need replacement. We also repair decks and re stain decks. On the inside we repair walls, remove wallpaper, enamel wood work and paint paneling. We offer a 2 year labor warrantee on our labor, provide references and we would be happy to give you a free estimate. For all of your painting needs give us a call at 612-8392239.

you know, they did their job. … They gave him the money and away he went. He was in there less than a minute.” The robber had fled the scene by the time Richfield police arrived, the manager said. Authorities are mum on details of the robbery as the investigation is ongoing, but leads are “very minimal,” said Barry Fritz, Richfield director of public safety. “All I can say is we have some witnesses,” said Lt. Mike Koob, who is in charge of Richfield police investigations. Bank robberies are rare these days, noted Koob, who could not recall the last time one occurred in Richfield. The official said he believed this was the first time the Richfield branch of First National Bank of the Lakes was robbed. The veteran banker said he has learned how to respond to the numerous bank robberies he has encountered. “The best thing you can do is give them the money and get them out of the bank,” he said. To him, robberies are just part of the business. “I’ve been in the banking business for 30 years,” he said. “And it happens.” And as far as armed robberies go, he said, this one “was really a non-event.” The suspect is a white man possibly in his 30s, 5-feet-11-inches tall with a medium build, and wore a black mask, dark gloves, a black hooded sweatshirt and black jeans during the robbery, according to the FBI. Anyone with information regarding the robbery is asked to contact the FBI at 612-376-3200 or Richfield Police at 612861-9800.

Alex Viera The Richfield senior and boys soccer captain was a one-man scoring show for the Spartans this year. Viera led the team with 13 goals, 10 more than anybody else on Richfield’s roster.

BY DAVE PEDERSEN – SUN NEWSPAPERS Senior Hannah Olson of Richfield had her best time at her third and final state Class AA cross country meet – in more ways than one. Because she ran faster than ever in three state meets, Olson said she had her best time and most fun at the Nov. 5 state meet at St. Olaf College in Northfield. She finished 35th in a time of 15 minutes, 8.6 seconds. As a sophomore Olson placed 41st in 15:45. Last year she had a faster time (15:25), but a lower place (46th). Her goal this year was to be in the top 25 to earn All-State honors, plus run under 15 minutes. This was her second-fastest time ever. She broke 15 minutes for the first time at the Section 3AA meet where she placed fifth and was clocked in 14:51, setting a new personal-best time by 21 seconds. “I stayed with a pack of 13 runners until the last half-mile when I used by kick to pass as many as possible,” Olson said about the section meet. “I tend to rely on a pretty good kick.” At state, Olson worked hard on what coach Martin Huberty calls a

Umpire Gallagher gains his place in Class A Hall of Fame After 56 years, he calls them like he sees them BY JOHN SHERMAN – SUN NEWSPAPERS When Larry Gallagher first put on umpire’s gear at a Columbia Heights playground in 1955, he felt right at home. He was 15 years old at the time, and he had no idea that he’d still be working behind the plate 56 years later. Recently, Gallagher became the first umpire inducted into the Minnesota Baseball Association’s Class A Hall of Fame. “I’ve been behind the plate for a perfect game, but I don’t think I’ve ever called a perfect game,” said Gallagher. “Like anyone else, I’ve made mistakes, but I won’t take a play off or a pitch off.” Gallagher, who lives in Crystal, estimates he has umpired close to 5,000 games, an average of about 100 a year, during his career. Seven of those games were in the American League in 1979, when the major league umpires went on strike. Gallagher worked behind the plate in two of those seven games, one of them featuring the Twins and the Tigers. “Calling balls and strikes was no different in the majors,” he said. “The pitchers were faster with better control. The main difference with the hitters was how long the major-leaguers could wait on a pitch. The hitters were so good.” Gallagher maintains his passion for the game. “I have umpired high school baseball for 51 years now,” said Gallagher. “I worked my first college game in 1963. And I have been a member of Northwest Umpires Association since 1964.” In addition to umpiring in seven decades, Gallagher made a name for himself as a town team player and manager. He was the starting catcher at Augsburg College in Minneapolis and the Auggies won the Minnesota Intercollegiate Athletic Conference title in his senior year, 1961. During football season, he was a starting tackle. “When I played college baseball, I was in the lineup mainly for defense,” he said. “You might say I was an offensive liability, but I did lead the team in onbase percentage two years in a row.” When Gallagher graduated from Augsburg, he became a teacher and coach. During his years as a teacher at Tartan High School in Oakdale, he coached volleyball 22 years, wrestling 10 years, basketball 18 years, baseball 12

Veteran umpire Larry Gallagher makes an emphatic out call at the plate during the 2006 state Class A amateur baseball tournament at Parade Stadium. (Photo by John Sherman • Sun Newspapers) years and football 12 years. Most of his coaching assignments were at the ninthgrade and sophomore levels, although he coached one year of varsity wrestling and part of a varsity season in girls basketball when coach Bill Mason was sidelined by cancer surgery. Meanwhile, Gallagher continued playing baseball in the summer for Dick’s Place, Columbia Heights’ amateur team. He managed and played when Heights won state amateur titles in 1967 and ’68 and also played on state-championship teams there in 1970 and ’72. Mainly, he caught and pitched batting practice, but he occasionally won a game on the mound. “The hall of fame award was more of an umpiring award than a playing award, although I did play amateur baseball for 20 years,” Gallagher said. Gallagher is highly respected by high school, youth and amateur baseball coaches and officials. “Larry loves being out there, even if it’s raining and cold,” said Hopkins High School coach Neil Lerner. “If you ever want to know a rule, Larry knows the rulebook forwards and backwards. He is big on playing the game the right way. As someone who loves baseball, that means a lot to me and I respect him for that.” South Hennepin American Legion Baseball director Gene Berg said, “Larry’s dedication is unreal. He has been umpiring for so many years now, and he is a master at what he does. He knows the game. As a former catcher, he

has been looking at balls and strikes his whole life, so you know he’ll give you a good strike zone.” Minnetonka amateur team manager Kevin Hoy said, “When you talk about Larry, two things come to mind, class and character. Every call matters to Larry.” Hoy recalled an incident at the 2007 state Class A amateur tournament in Shakopee. Minnetonka’s Tony Richards was the tying run at second base when the second baseman for the Stillwater Loggers asked Richards to step off the base so he could dust it off. Then the second baseman tagged Richards out. Gallagher was the base umpire, and he knew immediately what was happening. Hoy remembers Gallagher saying, “We’re not going to play that kind of baseball here. I had time!” Gallagher’s early training in umpiring was provided by his mentor in Columbia Heights, Joe Vancisin, who went on to become head basketball coach at Yale University. Gallagher didn’t attend any umpiring schools early in his career. Instead, he learned by doing and talking with experienced umpires. At age 62, he enrolled at the Jim Evans Umpiring School in Florida. “A lot of the guys there had aspirations to be pro umpires,” said Gallagher. “They knew I wasn’t there for that. I was there for an education.” The trip to Florida gave Gallagher new life. He was sharper than ever

before on the basics – judgment, positioning and rules. “At the umpiring school, there was a lot of mental training,” said Gallagher. “They put us through different scenarios. The purpose was to find out who could handle being a professional ump. I came back from Florida more confident.” Gallagher offered five points of advice for young umpires: • Get as many repetitions as you can. • Find a mentor who will tell you what you need to do to improve and how to do it. • Be a good listener. • Realize that umpiring is only one phase of the game. • Don’t let your ego get in the way. “A number of umps I have known never changed anything from the day they started,” said Gallagher. “I get excited when I see a young umpire moving in the right direction, eliminating mistakes he made in games 1 and 2 by the time he works games 10 and 12. I am still looking for ways to improve. Change is very important. Physically, I can’t cover as much ground as I used to, so it’s more important now to get the angles.” Gallagher said his fondest memories in umpiring were the games he worked with Phil Abalan, a Hopkins High teacher. “Phil and I worked 200-250 games together from the late 1970s through 1993,” said Gallagher. “And then Phil died in 1994. What I liked about working with Phil was that neither of us would accept mediocrity from the other. He was feisty, I was a little more laid back, we were both teachers and we had daughters the same age. What you saw of Phil on the field, you also saw in real life.” What is Gallagher’s future in umpiring? First and foremost, he wants to stay involved in baseball. He plans to keep active on the field for as long as he’s in good health. And at the same time, he wants to share his passion and knowledge with as many young umpires as he can. This is the third year in a row Gallagher has been inducted into a hall of fame. In 2009 it was the Columbia Heights High School Hall of Fame. Last year it was the Northwest Umpires Hall of Fame. The Class A Amateur Baseball Hall of Fame might be his biggest honor so far, but there’s always 2012, and this veteran umpire seems to have a good streak going.

The Section 4A swimming and diving meet is scheduled for Nov 10 and 12 at Richfield Middle School, 7461 Oliver Ave. S. Preliminaries in diving run from 9 a.m. to noon Thursday, Nov. 10, with swimming prelims at 6:30 p.m. The finals for diving and swimming start at 1:30 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 12. Senior Sarah Pospisil is seeking a return trip to state. She has been on varsity since the seventh grade along with the Spartans’ other two seniors, Sarah Sathre and Margaret Schroeder. Expecting to challenge for a spot at state is junior diver Courtney Miller, who has been unbeatable and placed first at the Section 4A True Team meet. Other leaders include sophomore Kinya Gilbert in sprint freestyle events, ninth-grader Claire Magno and sophomore Tenzin Kelsang in the backstroke, ninth-grader Leah Boldt in the breaststroke and twin ninth-grade sisters Aya and Heba Eid in freestyle events. The swimmers will also help on relays, along with ninth-grader Cori Benson. The state meet runs Nov. 17-19 at the

Running FROM PAGE 22 “It is sad because it was my last high school cross country race, but I am very happy with the way it ended,” said Olson, who has been on the Spartan varsity for six years. She earned All-Classic Suburban Conference honors five times. There was no doubt Olson would run cross country in high school. The sport runs in her family. Her grandparents have entered numerous marathons. Olson recalls “running my first half mile race when I was 2 years old. I would run with my aunts, grandma and mom, all who graduated from Richfield High. My father and younger brother are hockey players.” What Olson learned from her avid running family members was to build endurance in the summer by putting in the miles. And then when the sea-

Boys soccer awards Richfield boys soccer announced post-season awards with the big winner being senior Alex Viera, who was named All-State honorable mention. Viera was also named All-Classic Suburban Conference, and his team’s Most Valuable Player and Best Offensive Player. He was invited to play in the boys soccer Senior Classic Nov. 9 at the Metrodome. Senior Moses Mugwanja was named all-conference and the team’s Best Defensive Player. Earning AllConference honorable mention were senior Carlos Quechuleno and sophomore Obsa Ali. Defender Nelson Soto Moreno was named Most Improved, plus earned an academic award along with Jordan Zoellmer. The Spirit Award was given to goalie Eduardo Chavero Hernandez. Captains for the 2012 season are Ali, Nate Luttenegger and Max Nelson.

son starts, she tries for a faster pace. As a team captain for the Spartans, Olson put in more than 400 miles last summer, training six days a week. She also used Nordic skiing as a way to get ready for cross country and track. Olson narrowly missed going to state in the 3,200-meter run last track season. In track, she was all-conference six times and honorable mention twice. Olson owns the Richfield school record in the 3,200 meters. She also is part of a school-record 4x800 relay that barely missed going to state last spring. “Her work ethic is unbelievable,” Huberty, the Spartans’ first-year head coach, said about Olson. “At captains’ practice last summer she had a notebook where every day she recorded how many runners were there and what they did.” Olson plans to attend the University Minnesota-Duluth, which has one of the top women’s cross country programs in Division II.
