Honoring our veterans Veterans Day a time to honor, thank vets BY ERICA GASPAR


eterans Day, observed Sunday, November 11 this year, is a time designated to honor and remember all of the veterans that have made countless sacrifices serving our country and ensuring our freedom. Many of our older vets served in the unpopular Vietnam War. Some soldiers served willingly. Many were drafted. As military families can confirm, war changes a person forever. Physical wounds can heal, but the emotional distress can last a lifetime. Local veteran Alan Rops was a 23-year-old grad student when he was drafted. “At the Don McGuire served in the Army from 1965 to 1967. time, no one wanted to go. I During is tour of duty in Vietnam McGuire was just wanted to do my time and exposed to Agent Orange, a herbicide that was get out,” he said. Rops was sent sprayed generously over the battlegrounds. to Vietnam and placed in an Army infantry division. He was told “early and often” to never team was able to see what everyone was volunteer for anything in the doing, giving them a “bigger picture” of military, but he chose to volunteer for reconnaissance, which meant he became the war. Rops says the Iraq and Afghanistan Wars of today aren’t all that differpart of a small, elite group of soldiers ent from the Vietnam War; none were that patrolled and explored outside the popular wars and the military forces perimeter that U.S. forces occupied. were under appreciated.

Vietnam War. It was the first time the public got an up-close view of war every night on their television screens. They didn’t like what they saw. However, better technology was also becoming available in the medical field, which meant that veterans had a better chance of surviving their battle wounds. Prior to Vietnam, a serious battlefield wound was often a death sentence. From Vietnam on, wars produced a new category of vets: the seriously wounded that were successfully patched up and sent home. “You (could) keep them alive, but body parts were missing,” Rops noted. Another difference between then and now: the National Guard didn’t get deployed overseas, so that was one way to serve your time and still stay within U.S. borders. There weren’t many ways to avoid the draft, Rops said, but joining the Guard was a good alternative if you didn’t want to get deployed. “The Guard didn’t go into Vietnam at all,” Rops said, “But they were deployed in the early 90s during Desert Storm,” and are now deployed regularly. Rops was in the Army from October of 1968 to August of 1970. When he returned, he taught in Vermillion for a year, then received a letter from the Army demanding that he go to California to help train Guardsmen. “The men being trained were not very enthusiastic. They didn’t think they would ever go to war,” he said. Rops considers himself lucky to have only had “typical” ailments while he was serving in Vietnam. He was not wounded, but did contract typhus and suffered often with “jungle rot”— a common skin disease in tropical environments—an unpleasant condition

endured by many of the soldiers. “It rained all the time and we always had wet feet,” he recalled. While Rops is able to talk to others about his Vietnam experiences, and often speaks at schools and Memorial Day events, he and other veterans are keenly aware that most of the public will never truly understand what their service time was like, or how to deal with the fallout. “I was hunting and killing bad guys for 11 months, then discharged,” said Rops. Five days later, he was back in Lennox, somehow supposed to pick up where he left off and live a normal life. Such a sharp “psychological edge is required when in combat” because you always have to be prepared for the worst. “Emotionally, it wears on you,” he said. “A lot of people say PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder) isn’t real, but believe me, it’s real. I’ve been there and I would never be critical of a suspected PTSD case,” Rops said. Rops has been able to move past his combat time and no longer considers it an everyday issue, but says “it is a big issue for a lot of vets.” “I’ve been lucky to have lived a ‘pretty normal’ life (after the war),” he said. “All the physical problems don’t compare to the mental ones, the ones you can’t see until someone acts on it. The technology changes, but the experiences don’t,” Rops said. Another Vietnam vet, Cliff Wulf, was drafted out of Iowa but has lived in Lennox for the last 40 years. Wulf was drafted and served in Vietnam from December of 1967 to November of 1968. One tactic that U.S. forces used to lessen their risk of exposure to enemy attacks was to eliminate potential hiding places in the jungle. Agent Orange, named for the orange bands around the barrels it was kept in, was a herbicide that was sprayed generously over the battlegrounds. ■ VETERANS DAY, page 3

Thanks to the efforts of Chet Whitney, a 1951 Lennox High School graduate, it has become easier to research the local men that took part in that great conflict and to read their stories. Three years ago, Whitney contacted the Lennox Historical Society and was given permission to digitize and archive all of The Lennox Independent articles that they had from World War II. The results of that is a CD, which lists 583 articles and/or pictures by the soldier’s name. “As a veteran myself, from a later era, I often think of the unique sacrifices these men and women made, and the impacts on families left without much information about the whereabouts or safety of their loved ones. One of my uncles was overseas for 44 months,” said Whitney. “Today those in the military, even those in forward areas, can phone or Skype and have almost daily converStaff Sergeant Lloyd Temple is pictured front row, fourth from the left. sations with those at home.

crew chief on a B-17 and later as a gunner on a B-29. Temple was among the first to fly over the Japanese capital in a Super-Fortress, going on his first mission in June, 1944. He flew regular missions over Japan, after several trips over the famed “hump” into China. “That usually is quite rough due to weather, etc.,” Temple wrote in a letter home. “We almost always see the peak of Mt. Everest that can be seen from many miles away.” Temple related that China was a very interesting country. “The people work hard but must use very primitive means,” he wrote. “They have practically no machinery. They seem quite happy… “The Chinese will do anything to help the Americans,” he wrote. On June 15, 1944, a story by a Time and Life correspondent, told of the crew, of which Temple was a member, which barely escaped death following their forced landing on a small plateau in Free China, after a raid on Japan. Japanese fighters and bombers set fire to the B-29 while the crew hugged the ground nearby. The crew survived the attack, walked to an airfield and were flown back to their base. A year later, the unthinkable happened—Sgt. Temple was reported missing. His parents, Mr. and Mrs. John A Temple, were told he had not returned from a mission over enemy territory (Osaka, Japan) on June 1, 1945. ■ WWII STORIES, page 3

Veterans Day program to be held at LWC Middle School on Monday The Lennox Middle School is proud to announce the 12th annual program to honor our veterans. The Veterans Day observance will be held Nov. 12, 2012 at the middle school cafetorium. All veterans and those currently serving in the armed forces are invited. The program will start at 2 p.m. this year and is open to everyone who would like to join us in honoring those who have served. Featured speaker for the event is Danelle Van Gelder, who recently returned from Afghanistan. The program will last approximately one hour and refreshments will be served following the program. If you know any veterans in the area, please encourage them to attend so they can be honored.

Taylor Kuper receives American Legion Auxiliary Good Deed Award Taylor Kuper was notified last spring that she was the recipient of the National American Legion Auxiliary “Good Deed Award.” The committee created the award in 2002 to recognize youth who demonstrate a kind caring act of selflessness. Taylor, the daughter of Kris and Jolene Kuper of rural Lennox, is a 6th grader at Lennox/ Worthing/Chancellor Middle School. While Taylor’s dad, Kris, was serving in Kuwait for a year, Taylor was busy doing “good deed” for veterans. She tied many yellow ribbons around many trees waiting for her dad’s safe return. She sang “Thank You Soldiers” at different occasions to veterans and their families. She also sang “The National Anthem” for several services and participated in the Memorial Day service in Chancellor. The year her dad served overseas, she sang during the service. She and her grandfather, Verlyn Muller, sowed grass on a veteran’s grave at the Lennox Cemetery. Taylor sent care packages to her dad and his company. She also sent letters and pictures. When Taylor’s dad returned from active duty, she met him at the airport with open arms, hugs and kisses. There were many tears of joy! A sign at the end of the driveway read, “Welcome Home, Daddy —We Love You!” Serving veterans is very special to Taylor as her dad serves in the Navy and both of her grandfathers are Vietnam veterans. Taylor respects the American Flag and her country and she knows freedom is not free!

The more we know, the less we know


t this writing, the big election is just hours away. So when you read this commentary on elections, you likely will have already learned who the winners and the losers are. Then again, there could be a cliff-hanger like in previous elections and it could take days to determine the eventual winners. Even after the first counting of the ballots is announced, the polling companies may still be conducting polls in order to tell us who will eventually emerge victorious.

Polls, polls and more polls has been the hallmark of this election cycle. If you didn’t like the results of one poll, just wait a few hours for the next one to come out and tell you that your candidate will win. So it seems, the more these polls told us, the less we really knew about the eventual outcome of the election. It became evident that neither side was too confident in these polls, and wouldn’t admit it if they were.

cisions and others who criticize them. I would hope our district and town continue to work together for the betterment of all our citizens young and old (the group of which I now belong to). The basis for strong communities is there ability to capitalize on opportunities to enhance and improve their ability to attract families and business to increase revenue. It benefits the school district as well with the possibility of increased enrollment, business support and sponsorship. It would seem both the city and school presently have one of those opportunities to work together and seize an opportunity that would benefit both entities. The school owns the old football field property which is adjacent to the cities main park property,

important to us, South Dakotans must remember that no matter who wins or loses in legislative and other state public office races, as well as the ballot issues, it is important that we work together to meet the challenges of state government. Perhaps this election will provide a better indicator of what path the majority wants this country to travel than the countless polls that have been taken this past year. No doubt, the winners are celebrating and the losers are seeking that proverbial silver lining. The greatest consolation and hope for all American voters, winners and losers, is that there will be future free elections.

Letter to the Editor… Working together is a win-win To the Editor: I would like to start this letter by stating I am proud to be a member of the Lennox School District, and a citizen of Lennox. Our school district is seeing growth and providing quality educational and extra-curricular opportunities for our districts communities’ most important asset, our children! The council members of Lennox have done a commendable job in balancing the budget, and appear to be making continued efforts to improve our infrastructure (sewer, water, streets, economic development and public safety). I realize that many of these projects take an enormous amount of time, effort, and money to complete. There will be people who support these de-

Without a doubt, this has been a high-stake presidential election campaign. Both sides have expressed the conviction that the other side would surely lead our country down the wrong path. Maybe they both would; now isn’t that a scary thought? We can only hope that both are wrong because there will be (or is) a winner and a loser. The really important thing is that even the most partisanminded people have the good sense to put country before party in the days ahead. No matter who wins, America’s problems and challenges are not going away days, months or even years after this election. On a smaller scale but still

It is no secret that the city is in dire need of additional property to expand their park system to develop additional field space to provide the citizens adequate opportunities for practice and game availability, and recreational opportunities. I believe that both the City of Lennox and the Lennox School District would agree that an opportunity such as this to work together to establish a reasonable price and reasonable repayment terms will benefit both entities for years to come. Make no mistake this is a business decision, both entities should treat this opportunity as such and make a responsible decision. That being said, given the proximity

of the property to the existing park system, and the need to liquidate a surplus property, it would seem to me that both parties not exhausting every effort to reasonably come to an agreement that would benefit both the city and the school would be a missed opportunity that will most likely not come around again. Life and business are about seizing opportunities when presented. My hope is both the school and city seize this opportunity, and that both will benefit. More importantly they will show they are both willing to make an investment and create additional opportunities for both of their most important asset, their young students and citizens.

Veterans Day a time to honor, thank vets â– VETERANS DAY, page 3

The effects of Agent Orange are still being debated, but the herbicide is known to have caused a host of health problems among service members and their offspring, including ischemic heart disease, several cancers and nerve disorders, Parkinson’s disease, Hodgkin’s disease and type 2 diabetes as well as several other diseases and disorders. “We were probably exposed to more Agent Orange than we’ll ever know,� Wulf said. He remembers that troops were removed from an area, which was then sprayed. Troops would return to the area a few days later. “Chemicals don’t disappear overnight, especially in water, and we mostly bathed in the streams,� he said. Like Rops, Wulf is grateful to have escaped the war with relatively few health problems. One of his children was born with spina bifida and an incorrectly formed skull. Wulf and his wife, Carol, were relieved that the spina bifida was “not severe enough to cause problems� and that their son’s skull has “corrected itself over time.� The Wulfs are on an Agent Orange registry and receive annual updates but are “not real impressed with VA care at times� and have often felt that the VA “hasn’t been in much of a hurry,� although the VA seems to have improved over time, the Wulfs say. They also credit the VFW for being “willing to work with vets to get care.� A lasting health issue that Wulf has had since his time in the service has been tinnitus, a ringing or buzzing in the ears that does not go away. Wulf’s hearing was fine before he was deployed. Then he was assigned to a mortar platoon. “We never had hearing protection overseas and were definitely exposed to higher levels of noise than you should be

without hearing protection, over and over,� Wulf said. “Even in base camp, we never had hearing protection,� he said. Today’s veterans are familiar with IEDs (improvised explosive devices). “We didn’t call them IEDs. Back then, they were booby traps,� Wulf said. The booby traps were typically unexploded mortar rounds or bombs that were buried in the road or in the rice paddies and would explode when stepped on or driven over. It is still difficult for Wulf to share his experiences. He vividly recalls never knowing who to trust. The enemy soldiers, or Viet Cong as they were known, “could be farmers or barbers that would wave hello to you in the daytime� and then “try to attack you at night. They loved nighttime, they were night fighters,� Wulf said. “Sleep was a rare commodity. When you did sleep, your ears were always open and one eye was always open,� he recalled. Wulf’s message to Vietnam vets that continue to struggle: “Seek out other Vietnam vets, visit the memorials.� The Wulfs attended the Vietnam War memorial dedication event in Pierre in 2006. It was “like a homecoming that never took place when it should have,� Carol said. “A lot of vets are own their own when they come back� and need help readjusting and “learning how to become civilians again,� she said. Don McGuire, another Lennox Vietnam vet, was also drafted. He served in the Army from 1965 to 1967. He recalls “brutal monsoons� and said about the only good thing there is to say is that there “was good lobster there.� It has been a long road for McGuire, who was affected by Agent Orange. Other vets encouraged him to keep returning to the VA and keep digging into

his service and health records, especially once he developed high blood pressure and nerve problems. He isn’t able to walk very far and must drag one leg. McGuire’s high blood pressure was first diagnosed during a mandatory physical right after he was discharged. He has also had problems with blood clots. McGuire isn’t afraid of much anymore. “I’ve been shot at, what else is there to be afraid of?� he says. But he is frustrated with all the red tape involved in getting the medical care he needs. “Whose responsibility is it to look out for veterans?� he asked. McGuire had to undergo surgery to clear three of the four arteries near his heart. The fourth artery was deemed too large of a risk to go after. “The doctor said there’s too big of a risk that a clot might break off and go to my brain,� McGuire said. Agent Orange is known to cause vascular problems, but many vets are unaware of exactly what illnesses are considered “presumptive,� meaning that the government acknowledges that the illnesses are linked to service time and are covered under VA benefits. Some of McGuire’s frustrations stem from the apparent lack of communication among veterans’ caregivers. “The VA wanted a note from my doctor explaining how my (vascular) issues are related to Agent Orange,� he said, but there is already a known link, “so why would my doctor need to go through that again?� All of the vets we spoke to agreed that good care and understanding are difficult to come by. At the very least, they hope that people will attempt to take the time to listen to their stories and help in any way they can, whether it’s volunteering at the VA hospital or contacting local representatives and encouraging better treatment of vets.

The family must have been ecstatic when a news broadcast broke that revealed Temple had been found on a small island in the Pacific. Sadly, that report was found to be untrue, and the family was officially notified that their son was killed in action on June 1, 1945. A letter received by the mother of another member of the B-29 crew told the details: “Of the eleven men who were aboard the “Super Mouse� only one crew member T-Sgt. Daniel J. Serritello was rescued.

No one was injured during the attack, and the bomber stayed in formation and made the bomb run successfully‌ The crew tried to set the plane into auto-pilot to make a landing at Iwo Jima for repairs. But “a few seconds later the B-29 went into a violent left bank and the alarm bell rang almost simultaneously.â€? Sgt. Serritello related that he started to climb out of the escape hatch in the tail. He was partially out when the aircraft apparently exploded. He had no memory of that. He was able to pull the ripcord on a parachute. He did not see any other parachutes in the air and did not see any other survivors. About an hour later, he was rescued by a submarine. A B-29 reported seeing survivors, but it was later believed that what

they actually saw was oxygen tanks. In Temple’s military career, he had been awarded the Air Medal with two Oak Leaf clusters, the Distinguished Flying Cross and four battle stars. In a letter to the family, Chaplain (Capt.) John D. Barringer wrote: “Lloyd had made many new friends by his congenial and pleasing personality . . . his courage and willingness to serve his country in her hour of need stands as a inspiration to those who remain to carry on the fight until final and complete victory.� For this story, and many more, check out the archives at the Lennox Museum, located at 305 S.

Turner County lifts burn ban Turner County Commissioners have lifted the burn ban effective immediately. However, you are still required to call Canton to report a controlled burn. The non-emergency number is 605-764-2664. They need your name, address and where the burn will take place. You also need to call Canton when your burn is done. “Please remember, you could still be subject to a fine, if you have a control burn and leave it

unattended, causing a volunteer department to be called in,� said the Turner County Emergency Services Association. “Conditions are still extremely dry, and caution is advised. If you have any questions or need assistance with a burn we urge you to call your local fire department.� As of Tuesday, the Lincoln County burn ban was still in effect. Harold Timmerman, Lincoln County Emergency Manager, said it may be lifted soon.

to see as well anymore, are missing a good story some time or need some entertainment rather than TV, check into an audio book. I know the library has some available or let Kristi know you would like to learn more about audio books. If you drive a lot, audio books are a great time to make the miles go by much more quickly. I am never without a book in my car CD player. Often I end up taking the last CD in the house because I need to know how it ends! Or do some of you read the first chapter of a book, then the last chapter, then the rest of the book? I have a friend that does that!

Lennox Ambulance takes home EMS Week award The Lennox Area Ambulance Service won the 2012 EMS Week Contest on October 17 during the South Dakota Emergency Medical Technician Association (SDEMTA) conference for their activity of “Daycare Days.” “Daycare Days” was an activity where ambulance volunteers and paid ambulance employees took the ambulance around to various daycare facilities to show the ambulance and equipment to children in order to help minimize their fear if they were ever in a situation where they, a family member, or friend might need the help of Emergency Medical Services (EMS). The winners received $500 and a certificate from the South Dakota EMS for Children (SDEMSC) Program. SDEMSC is an organization that provides resources to make the children of South Dakota safer and well taken care of in the unfortunate event they become sick or injured. Attending this year’s SDEMTA annual conference in Watertown, SD were volunteers Brooke Fodness, Heidi Fodness, Feyet Munshikpu, Brenda Sinning, Sharla West, and paid EMT Chad Skiles. The SDEMTA holds an annual conference each year offering a variety of training for Emergency Medical Technicians (EMTs) and paramedics. National educators are brought in to provide EMTs and paramedics with the best practices and latest technology in pre-hospital emergency care. This event also provides an opportunity for EMTs and paramedics from across the state to meet with each other and other professionals in the EMS field. Some optional events that attendees can participate in are Trauma Wars and EMS Olympics. The awards are given during the conference banquet.

Lennox Ambulance volunteers accepted the 2012 EMS Week Contest Award at the SDEMTA conference in October. Pictured are: Feyet Munshikpu, Brenda Sinning, Heidi Fodness, Brooke Fodness, Sharla West, and Amy Marsh of SDEMSC.

Denzel Washington doesn’t disappoint in “Flight” BY ERICA GASPAR

played a part in the accident and, after all, some things are best described as ‘acts of God.’ A routine National Transportation Safety Board investigation into the cause of the crash almost clears Whitaker of any wrongdoing. Almost. Turns out, the worst day was also the best day for Whitaker. The

An ordinary day. That’s how a pilot wanted to describe the events of a particular day. Just one problem. Most people wouldn’t consider a plane crash ordinary. When something terrible happens, people want an explanation. They want to hold someone responsible. Responsibility is something that pilot William “Whip” Whitaker has been avoiding for a long time. Initially, Whitaker is hailed as a hero. The plane started falling apart in the middle of the flight. He can’t be held responsible for that. He is a flawed human being, but saved many lives that day. It is human nature to want to hide our imperfections. But when an imperfection leads to a major catastrophe, the search for answers begins. A variety of problems

superstar pilot was living large and flying high, in more ways than one. He was finally forced to come to terms with the consequences of addiction. Throughout the film, it is unclear if Whitaker’s judgment was impaired by alcohol and drugs during the accident. Lie after lie is told, until courtesy of the house of cards finally falls. Denzel Washington, a Hollywood fa-

vorite, makes this role his own and doesn’t disappoint. Other cast members include Kelly Reilly as another addict and love interest of Captain Whitaker, Don Cheadle as Whitaker’s attorney, and John Goodman as the oddball drug dealer. “Flight” opened in theaters November 2 and is the latest project for director Robert Zemeckis. Zemeckis is also known for a host of other hit movies, including the “Back to the Future” series, “Forrest Gump,” “Cast Away,” “The Polar Express,” and “Beowulf.” He called the movie’s $30 million price tag a “shoestring budget” and I suppose it is, given the ever-rising costs involved to produce movies with top notch actors and effects these days. The cast gives a strong performance and I wouldn’t be surprised if the movie is a

front runner during the next awards season.

Many people died in the uprising which overthrew the Kyrgystani president who was considered corrupt. The Doyles

Needs at the local food pantry As the holiday season nears, it is nice to remember our local food pantry, that helps so many families and people in need. Even though there have been contributions of food from the community, it is amazing how quickly it can disappear from the shelves. There will be definite needs in the months to come for the following items: Canned soups Boxed meal items like Hamburger Helper (doesn’t need to be that brand name), Escalloped Potatoes, stuffing, etc. Canned fruit Breakfast Cereal Pasta Canned pasta sauce Peanut butter and jelly Always remember to check the expiration date of products brought to the Exchange. They are unable to use out-dated items. If you have plenty to eat this

holiday season, remember to donate to The Exchange. If you need help filling your shelves with food, please stop at The Exchange, located at Ebenezer Presbyterian Church, 305 W. 1st Ave., Lennox. The Exchange is open on Saturday from 10 to 11 a.m.; Monday, 2-4 p.m.; and Wednesday, 3:30-5 p.m. If you cannot come on those hours, please call the church at 647-2659 to make an appointment.

Third grade troop makes ornament to be displayed at Capitol; attends Scientific Sorcery event

The troop is displaying their ornament they made together to be put on display at the Christmas at the Capitol in Pierre.

Matthew Mazourek with his 46 inch, 60 pounds paddlefish.

What a catch!

This time the â&#x20AC;&#x153;big oneâ&#x20AC;? didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get away! Matthew Mazourek went fishing on October 30, 2012 and came home with a monster. Matthew had applied for and received a paddlefish tag. This tag was only good for the month of October and had to be used below the Dam in Yankton. Matthew had gone out fishing four different times, never catching a fish. For paddlefishing a very long big rod is used with a very heavy line and big treble hook with a weight attached below the hook, allowing you to snag the fish. According to Matthew, you have to cast a long distance and let the weight drop and then pull to the side and reel in and then pull hard again and reel constantly, to try to snag a fish. With one last chance, Matthew and his dad, Ken, went down to Yankton after school on Oct. 30, Oct. 31 being the end of the season. Fishing can be done from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. It was five minutes to 7 p.m. and things were looking bleakâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; Matthew had yet to catch a fish. Then finally, he snagged one at 6:55 p.m. When trying to bring it in, the paddlefish got caught on something. Matthew was able to let a little line out so the fish could free itself from whatever it was hooked on. Matthew ended up losing his weight, but the hook was still attached to the side of the fish. The fish started to swim up river, Matthew said, so it was easy to reel in. As it got closer to shore, the fish took off in the other direction and sent Matthew on for a workout. It took him about 10 minutes to get the fish to shore. He could barely get it out of the water as the fish was nearly the size of him. Matthewâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s paddlefish measured 46 inches

and weighed 60 pounds. You can only keep the fish if it is less than 35 inches from the eye to the fork of the tail or if it is over 45 inches from the eye to the fork of the tail.

Members of the third grade Girl Scout Brownie Troop 40008 recently attended the Girl Scout Scientific Sorcery event. The troop traveled to the world of Hogwarts and got to experiment with pop rocks and lava in potions class, got a lesson in levitation in charm, and had a ton of fun! The third grade troop also met and had a Halloween party and took a picture with the ornament they made together which will be on display at Christmas at the Capitol in Pierre. Girl Scouts are celebrating their 100th year this year and will have a special Girl Scout 100th Anniversary tree on display. The 32nd Christmas at the Capitol will include over 90 trees

decorated by individuals and organizations from across South Dakota. Activities will include the lighting ceremony on Nov. 20, musical entertainment and story time for children throughout the display period, Pie Day, and special weekend displays. The event takes place from Nov. 21 through Dec. 26, 2012

Pictured above, at left, the Girl Scouts enjoy a trip into the exciting world of Hogwarts. Members are pictured from left to right and include, (back row): Rayanne Hoppe, Elizabeth Buehner, Autumn Hare, Isabella Clark; (front row): Jada Severson, Halie Spears, and Alicia Ruud.
