Tenured teachers now on chopping block in District 196 Fourteen teachers to be cut, 11 more get partial layoffs by Jessica Harper THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

Nontenured teachers are not the only ones seeing pink slips this year in the Rosemount-Apple ValleyEagan School District. The District 196 School Board unanimously approved June 13 laying off 14 tenured teachers and giving partial leaves of absence to 11 more.

Those who are partially laid off may teach one or two classes during the year or for only one trimester, said Tom Pederstuen, director of human resources in District 196. This comes just months after the board approved laying off 93 nontenured teachers. The nontenured layoffs came after the School Board unanimously approved in March slashing $3.5

million from the district’s 20112012 budget, which included job cuts. Officials said they were able to avoid laying off more teachers thanks to a recent retirement incentive, which resulted in a higher than average number of retirements. The district’s decision to lay off tenured teachers had more to do with changes at the middle school

than its budget constraints, Pederstuen said. On Jan. 10, the School Board unanimously approved shortening its middle school schedule to six periods to boost student achievement, particularly in math, and save money. Eliminating two class periods is expected to save an estimated $1.76 million a year.

While this change will save money and provide more time for core studies such as English, math, and social studies, it will cut time dedicated to extra curricular classes. As a result, the district’s middle schools will need fewer teachers in these areas, Pederstuen said. Pederstuen added that he expects this will be the last of the layoffs for this year.

Stephanie Lamoreaux, a 2008 graduate of Rosemount High School, started a two-month internship with World Wide Village this month near Port au Prince, Haiti, an area still suffering after a devastating earthquake and tsunami in January 2010. She is facilitating the coordination of daily activities of students in the Luly and Williamson schools in rural Haiti. Lamoreaux is fluent in French, which will help her with the Creole and French speaking Haitian children. She will also be bringing her love of music and proficiency in piano and clarinet as tools to help build connections to the students. A student at the University of Wisconsin La Crosse, Lamoreaux is majoring in elementary education with a minor in early childhood education. Lamoreaux’s family has lived in Rosemount for 16 years. She is the daughter of Wayne and Robin and sister to Aaron, Jason and Colin. She took time out recently during her work to answer a few questions from Thisweek. Following are her responses. What interested you about the internship? I knew I would be working with children, in schools, and with a community of people. I was excited to use what I have been learning in school about education and applying it. I was also drawn to the organization, which treated me well and were organized and interested in helping Haiti grow as a community, not just supplying it aid. What are your expectations of the project? We are planning on focusing on one city,

Luly. In that city we will work to try and to create a “model community� or establish quality community. Such as, a new school, a medical center, an Internet cafe, a community garden, etc. We are not sure how this will all work but our hope is to begin something that can be continued for years to come. What have you discovered since arriving in Haiti? I discovered this country to be a place in great need, but also a place with great hope. They are going to rebuild Haiti back and better, but it is going to take years. I have also discovered fun culture, new foods (goat, mango, plantains, sugar cane, coconut and more), new ways of driving (the “roads� have giant pot holes and are

Relay/from 1A After undergoing three more surgeries and a choice to go back to her original regimen of chemotherapy, Cunningham was asked by Mayo Clinic if she wanted to participate in a clinical study for a new injection treatment. “It wasn’t a difficult decision to make because it was the only option,� she said of being included in the study in September 2010 on the last day it was

open. Every eight weeks, Cunningham goes to Rochester to receive her treatment. She says her quality of life has been pretty good since starting the treatment. Cunningham, a secretary in the District 196 Special Education department for the past nine years and lifelong area Eagan and Rosemount resident, has been able to continue working through it all.

“I stay active,� she said. “I am always on the go. My mother used to say that I was going to wear myself out eventually. I don’t like to sit around at home and think about it. I am going to keep going and live every moment.� “As long as I have known Deb, she has had a positive attitude,� longtime committee volunteer and friend Nancy Kelly said. “However, once she received her diagnosis when you would think

her attitude would have changed it only got more positive. Deb has shown everyone how strong she is. I have never heard Deb complain about her diagnosis or any of her treatments.� Cunningham’s father, mother, a sister and a brother battled cancer, too. In the past year, her mother, Luella, and brother, Dale, have died from complications due to colon cancer.

Her mother, a 1952 graduate of Rosemount High School, died in late 2010 and her brother died in April of this year. The Cunninghamsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; story is one that speaks to the importance of early cancer screenings and continued research. Advancements in treatment helped Debbieâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mother become a fiveyear breast cancer survivor before her colon cancer diagnosis in March 2010. Debbieâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sister, Renee, is an 18-year ovarian cancer survivor. Her diagnosis made in the early stages of its development is credited for her successful battle. Debbie is a testament to having cancer screenings when recommended by the American Cancer Society. She said she didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have any medical complications prior to her diagnosis. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t put it off,â&#x20AC;? she said of the screenings. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is nothing compared to what you have to go through if you have cancer.â&#x20AC;? Debbieâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s father died from complications due to lung cancer in 2001. He was originally diagnosed in 1999, and the cancer resurfaced two years later. The Cunninghamsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;

story is important too because the family demonstrates the importance of caregiver and support roles. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Caregivers are survivors as much as the patients,â&#x20AC;? Cunningham said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That is not an easy task. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It can be grueling. It is important to have compassion for the caregivers. It is a 24-7 job.â&#x20AC;? Cunningham said she was fortunate in her cancer battle to not only have family support but also a great support network of friends, primarily through her membership at St. Joseph Church in Rosemount. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was so fortunate to have so much support,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I have great friends. They have been with me through everything. â&#x20AC;Ś Faith, family and friends is what has gotten me through this. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Honestly, they have been there every step of the way,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know if I could have made it through without them.â&#x20AC;? Debbie and husband Jim have three adult children. The family has lived in Rosemount for 25 years. Tad Johnson is at editor. thisweek@ecm-inc.com.

Opinion Thisweek Columnist Spotlight shines on theater standouts at Eastview, Eagan by Joe Nathan THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

Recent Eastview High School graduate Sarah Cartwright and musicals from Eagan and Eastview high schools were strongly praised last week on the main stage of a huge downtown Minneapolis theater. This happened during one of the most remarkable youth programs Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve ever witnessed. More than 2,600 people jammed into the Orpheum Theater to praise and promote high school musical theater. It was rowdy, rousing and reassuring. Cartwright was selected as the top high school female musical performer in the state. She will receive a free trip to New York City for a national competition. The Eastview spring production of â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thoroughly Modern Millieâ&#x20AC;? and the fall Eagan production of

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Hairsprayâ&#x20AC;? both earned â&#x20AC;&#x153;outstanding overall performanceâ&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;outstanding overall productionâ&#x20AC;? awards. Amanda Taylor, Michael Selchow, Peter Cassanda and Tim Jurney from Eastview were cited for an â&#x20AC;&#x153;outstanding performance.â&#x20AC;? So were Bailey Richardson, Melissa Schugel, Evan Esslinger, Justin Wirsbinski, Anna Hutton and Garrett Lukin from Eagan. Including those from Eastview and Eagan, 950 students (not a typo) from 47 high schools around the state participated. This was the sixth year that the Hennepin Theatre Trust (HTT) gathered high school musical students for a â&#x20AC;&#x153;Spotlightâ&#x20AC;? program. The performance was sold out. Why? It was incredibly uplifting, often funny, hugely entertaining and deeply reassuring. These

youngsters work very hard on a complicated, complex project â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a high school musical. An array of celebrities from radio, TV and newspaper presented awards and praised the young people. Eagan drama teacher Nancy Owzarek pointed out that Spotlight â&#x20AC;&#x153;gives students a chance to watch, and learn from performers in other schools.â&#x20AC;? She told me, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the end of the year and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m tired. But after tonight, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m re-energized for next year!â&#x20AC;? The trust is looking for other interested schools. Some of their assistance is free. It is impossible to describe all that HTT does to help high school musicals. They offer workshops for students and drama coaches, both in person and via video-conferencing. They send trained observers to watch rehearsals and provide feedback. They help schools share tickets, and props. Incredible! Much

more information here: http:// www.hennepintheatretrust.org/ education-and-community-engagement/what-spotlight. Melissa Koch, the trustâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s director of education and community engagement, believes â&#x20AC;&#x153;high school musical theatre education touches such a diverse population of students and is incredibly under appreciated. Not only does it utilize skills in mathematics, physics and design such as in technical aspects of the show, but performing builds a sense of selfconfidence, poise and improvisation. Musical theatre education builds community.â&#x20AC;? Confession time: I had a small role in a high school musical, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Guys and Dolls.â&#x20AC;? I wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t very good. But the experience was wonderful. Forty-five years ago, there was nothing like the Hennepin Theatre Trust. Today, there is.

Hereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a simple suggestion to any family with a youngster who might be interested, or any educator who does theater or musical theatre with students: Please check out the Hennepin Trust website. Sarah Cartwright summarized not only what she, but many others have learned from being in a musical: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Never stop reaching for your goals. The world of theatre is chock full of rejections, setbacks and disappointments, but there are just as many high points, callbacks and amazing experiences to be had.â&#x20AC;?

Letters Unhappy with those I voted for To the editor: I have just read the article published June 10 titled â&#x20AC;&#x153;Local legislators: Let voters decide definition of marriage.â&#x20AC;? I do not consider myself a Republican or a Democrat. I vote for the person and not the party. I am very unhappy that officials I voted for are pressing a constitutional amendment that in fact discriminates against fellow American citizens. You will probably find it humorous that a middle aged, Catholic, heterosexual father of three is opposed to the constitutional amendment against gay marriage. No matter how the Republicans spin it, this vote is in fact an effort to legalize discrimination in Minnesota

and America. Whether you believe that long-term homosexual couples deserve equal rights under the law or not, a vote for this amendment is a vote for discrimination. I thank God that desegregation of schools and public areas along with equality in voting rights for minorities and in some cases women was not put to a vote. These rights were longfought battles against many of the same arguments that the Republicans are presenting today. Had these important rights been put to a public vote at the time, they certainly would have been defeated. On many occasions I have heard the Republicans say that this has nothing to do with equal rights â&#x20AC;&#x201C; yet it very much does.

These elected officials have loudly and proudly stated what rights they believe gay Americans are not entitled to, but I have not heard a single Republican elected official describe or suggest what measures or alternatives they are willing to support for gay Americans. Discrimination backed by constitutional law can last for a lifetime. I will vote no for the constitutional amendment defining marriage as only between a man and a woman because it does not support or defend equality for all Americans. The homosexual population may be a minority, but they are no more or less American than anyone else. If you truly believe in equal rights then there should be no excuses or exceptions. Every American citizen should have equal rights un-

To the editor: The GOP Legislature presented Gov. Mark Dayton with a balanced budget without raising taxes. The GOP budget increased spending for K-12 Education and Health and Human Services.  Dayton vetoed nine out of the 10 state budget bills passed by the GOP Legislature on the grounds they did not raise taxes. By law, the Legislature adjourned May 23. All of the budget bills were completed; however, Dayton vetoed nine budget bills so we do not have a new state budget. The nonessential operations of government will shut down July 1 if a budget is not signed by the governor. Here is the bottom line. Gov. Tim Pawlenty held government spending down to about $30.5 billion over the last two years (Minne-

sota has a two-year budget cycle). State revenue over the next two years is projected at $34 billion. The GOP wants to limit spending to current revenues. Dayton wants a 22 percent increase in spending (about $37 billion) with major income tax increases. He later reduced the size of his tax increase to $1.8 billion. That is a 15 percent increase in spending over the last two-year budget. This is not economic reality. It is bad to raise taxes in a weak economy. Government canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t spend or borrow its way to prosperity. Eventually there is a day of reckoning. Rep. Diane Anderson, R-Eagan, understands economic reality. Daytonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s proposal to raise taxes will not result in higher revenues to the state. That is why the Legislature voted to go in another direction.  Anderson has consistently promoted jobs and economic growth through controlling spending with no new taxes.  Other states have found the result of raising taxes encourages businesses to relocate to lower tax states.  Minnesotaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s unemployment rate is already 9 percent. Once good-paying jobs leave a state, they seldom return. We canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t afford a 15 percent spending increase. We must balance the budget without raising taxes.   NICK PARIS Burnsville

            



    

      

struggle to build a simple busway here in Apple Valley. We need to pay attention to what others around the world are doing, and more important, how they do what seems to us impossible. Competitiveness requires a functional government to do what the private sector cannot or will not do. We need challenging jobs that pay remunerative wages; otherwise, young people will see little reason to excel in school. We need universities that do not saddle young graduates with outlandish debt. We need modern public infrastructure. We need a social safety net to protect us in hard times. It all costs money, and luckily, there is a lot of that sloshing around in America. Let our leaders stop the games and start to lead us into a future we can believe in. We can balance Minnesotaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 2011 budget with a few relatively minor tax hikes and spending adjustments. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not as hard as they say, and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time they got on with it.

Balance budget without tax hike

To the editor: As our leaders haggle, one wonders what another class of Dakota County kids will find as they graduate from high school and search for jobs or colleges. Business leaders like to remind us that we live in a competitive world, one that we need to understand a lot better. German industry continues to grow in spite of the countryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s extensive social safety net, high wages and high taxes. China graduates thousands of new engineers and scientists to serve her booming industries. Other countries provide medical services to all their people for a fraction of what we Americans pay.

To the editor: In response to the article about local legislators letting voters decide definition of marriage, there are two points to consider. First, voters elect legislators to make decisions; on the definition of marriage issue, the legislators have abdicated their authority, and therefore should have nothing more to say in the matter. Second, the legislators have set a precedent to let voters decide the definition of all sorts of other words, such as garbage, democracy, education, taxes, deficit, or budget for example. These spineless legislators really do have a position on the issue, they just want to make sure their base gets out to vote for it, and re-elect them to repeat the same foolishness.

THE 2011 ART AND ALL THAT JAZZ BOARD A 501C3 Minnesota coporation

Morrisonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s departure raises question To the editor: I do not doubt that Gail Morrison accomplished much during her long tenure as a District 191 School Board member. However, I was dumbfounded by the reason she is stepping down. She will no longer be available to serve because she is moving in with her boyfriend who lives outside the district. Have we become so irrational that we now put a reason like this in the newspaper? Did Ms. Morrison actually approve of this article before it went to press? If she did, then those of us with some sense of morality should question why she was on the board at all, much less for a decade or more. This is almost beyond belief.

Art and All That Jazz Voter ID benefits all appeals for help Minnesota citizens To the editor:

Chicks - Lewis Kathi and Drew Chicks and Kellie and Ken Lewis both of Lakeville, MN announce the engagement of their children, Kiya Chicks and Mitchell Lewis. Kiya is a 2007 graduate of Lakeville North and recently completed an associates degree from Normandale College. Kiya will be pursuing a degree in Histotechnology at Argosy University in the fall. She is currently working at Mackin. Mitchell is a 2006 graduate of Lakeville North and a 2010 graduate from Minneapolis College of Art and Design with a Bachelorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s degree in Graphic Design. Mitchell is currently self employed and doing free lance work. An August 7th wedding is planned at the St. Paul college club in St. Paul, MN.

To submit an announcement

To the editor: As a citizen who has served as an election judge chair for several elections, I see the need to require voter identification in Minnesota. This is not a party issue, it is a citizensâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; issue. The public deserves to have confidence in the integrity of our election system. Fair, transparent elections are the cornerstone of our representative republic. Requiring photo ID is an improvement to our voting system in Minnesota. Several polls show 80 percent of Minnesotans agree on this simple solution, yet Gov. Mark Dayton vetoed the voter ID Bill, which was passed by a bipartisan House and Senate. This is a huge disappointment for all Minnesotans who value fair elections. Voter ID benefits everybody. Shame on Gov. Dayton.

As August approaches, the Art and All that Jazz Festival finds itself financially underfunded for the first year since its inception in 2004. What began as a small gathering, highlighting local artists and musicians has grown to a nationally recognized family event. The music and art festival attracts over 15,000 people from all areas of the country to Burnsville. Over the years, we have presented national recording jazz artists Nick Colionne, Greg Adams from Tower of Power, Larry Carlton, Mindi Abair, and Jesse Cook to name a few. The organization and the festival itself are composed entirely of volunteers from the community with no paid positions. Volunteers who want nothing more, then to present a great festival for the city. The event has always depended on the generosity of our corporate sponsors and a small percentage of food and beverage sales, but

To the editor: I disagree with the prospect of Minnesota government being shut down. This is not a solution to the problem and still leaves a confrontation between Democratsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; and Republicansâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; points of view on the budget deficit, taxes and government reforms unresolved. A shutdown is not a good idea because it could cost the state of Minnesota millions of dollars (most state employees would have to be paid severance â&#x20AC;&#x201C; cash for unused sick leave and time off, according to union contracts). Where would the state find millions of dollars for that if there is already a budget deficit of $5.8 billion? What is going on right now in the Legislature reminds me of a squabble between children in elementary school: pointing fingers at each other and blaming each other. The difference is that in comparison with childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s squabbles the matter at stake is much more serious (more than 40,000 state employees and their families depend on the willingness of both parties to compromise and find a peaceful solution to this problem). The state of Minnesota could follow the example of the state of Washington, which was on the brink of a shutdown until the very last day. But at the end of that very last day, they finally found a compromise because â&#x20AC;&#x153;nobody wanted to see a shutdown happen.â&#x20AC;? On the final day of the session a deal was done. We are very thankful to Gov. Mark Dayton for saying he â&#x20AC;&#x153;stands on the side of Minnesotans.â&#x20AC;? And we also do hope that the Legislature will join him in â&#x20AC;&#x153;compromising, in finding a balanced solution to our budget and in standing up for Minnesotans.â&#x20AC;?

the changing economy and priorities for our corporate sponsors have reduced the amount of money available. While we have retained some of our sponsors, others have made a decision this year to no longer participate. Our concerted efforts to replace these sponsors have been largely unsuccessful and we are now being forced to make a decision as to whether or not we can continue. We now have a need to reach out to the community through this letter in order to save Art and All that Jazz. If you value the continuation of this event, and you are interested in being a corporate sponsor or becoming an individual contributor to keep your festival alive through these challenging times, please go to our website at www.burnsvilleartjazz. com and make a donation.

Collect â&#x20AC;&#x2122;em, trade â&#x20AC;&#x2122;em, frame â&#x20AC;&#x2122;em. The art-world phenomenon known as artist trading cards is coming to this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Eagan Art Festival. Guests have the chance to make their own trading cards â&#x20AC;&#x201C; miniature works of art about the size of a baseball card â&#x20AC;&#x201C; in the Art Experience Tent sponsored by the Eagan Art House. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They can be anything â&#x20AC;&#x201C; they can be collage, paint, basically anything you can get on a 2-inch by 3-inch card,â&#x20AC;? said Wanda Borman, festival manager. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You can trade them, but one of the rules is you canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t sell them.â&#x20AC;? The artist trading cards are among the host of activities and entertainment offerings at this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s festival, which runs June 25-26 on the festival grounds at Eaganâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Central Park.

Now in its 17th year, the free-admission event includes a juried fine-art show with displays by 100 artists, a community art project, food concessions and hands-on art activities for kids and adults throughout the weekend. Artists will showcase a variety of work including jewelry, pottery, photography and even garden ornaments, and all the art is for sale. An awards ceremony at which the Best in Show winner will be announced is set for 4 p.m. Saturday, June 25. The featured artist for the 2011 festival is Craig Richardson, a former Eagan resident, who creates wood vessels and wall hangings with inlays of turquoise and other media. Richardson was named the featured artist by the Eagan Art Festival jury. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They selected his work because itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s beautiful as

Haiti/from 1A never last in this humidity.) These people have mostly moved to tents, wherever they could find land. About 10,000 people moved to what is called â&#x20AC;&#x153;Tent City,â&#x20AC;? a place near the airport that is just jam-packed with tents. They went near the airport because they knew that is where the aid was coming in. However, others moved to what were once beautiful parks. For example, in front of the capital building was a memorial park (similar to Washington, D.C., but smaller) with fountains and trees, etc. Now you can see nothing but tents. These people do not have their basic needs met. The question of the day is usually, who is going to get water? Sometimes they need to walk up to an hour to get water! They live off of what they can get. But there is hope, since the earthquake about a year and a half ago there is progress. Streets are being cleaned up, rubble is being taken care of, and people are looking to move forward. However, this is going to take a while. We will need to build 200,000 homes to get all of these people back into a house. In Las Vegas at their height of building peak, they built 15,000 homes a year, so we are talking these people might be living in tents for 8-10 years! There are many people here to help, but it is a process and it will take time and a new frame of mind. What kind of work are you doing there? I want to try to figure out how to keep these students in school and help their parents understand the importance of school. I would

We have also been talking about creating a better sponsorship program with our sponsored students. Connecting the students in Haiti with their supporter in the U.S. The other interns that I am working with are involved in the medical field, helping malnourished kids and potentially starting prenatal and postnatal care in our medical facility in Luly. They have already fit and distributed hearing aids to partially deaf people and they were excited to see their expression change when they first could hear again. Another intern is taking on the role of social media. He is working to create a documentary on the kids in Haiti and their needs and bring it back to elementary schools to share it with his community. He has taken numerous photos you can view them at: www.alexherbigphoto.com. How does it make you feel to be undertaking such work? I am honored to be tak-

ing on such work. It is empowering to be able to help these people and see them want to build back better. What are the rewards? I think the reward will come years later, when Haiti has rebuilt itself and I can say that I was honored enough to serve as a part of that reconstruction. It is also rewarding to see the childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s smiles and their love. What are the challenges? There are many challenges. It is a challenge to connect with people to find the right things needed for projects. The unsafe roads can be a challenge to get from place to place. Old, diesel, broken vehicles that barely work and often break down and need to be pushed through huge puddles, can be a challenge. Delayed flights, mosquitoes, 110 degree temperatures, and no electricity. All of these are challenges, but nothing that canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be overcome.

Thanks to five top-five finishes, the Eastview boys track and field team finished in fifth place at the Class AA state meet last weekend at Hamline University in St. Paul. It was tight at the top of the meet with five teams between 47 and 41 points. The Lightning finished with 41 points, which was six behind first-place Stillwater at 47. Second-place Wayzata scored 43 and Park and Eden Prairie tied with 42. All of Eastview’s points came from jumping events. Frank Veldman was responsible for 30 of the 41 points. He finished in second in the high jump (6 feet, 7 inches), long jump (22-, 11.25) and triple jump (459.25). Ryan Lockard took fourth in the high jump. Khalil Jordan was fifth in the triple jump.

The Apple Valley girls track and field team brought home its first gold medal since 2008 last weekend after the Class AA state meet at Hamline University in St. Paul. The 4x100-meter relay with Megan Maki, Jaryn Pipkins, Jordan Sammons and Taylor Browning combined for a time of 48.10 seconds, which was faster than anyone else over the weekend. It was a relief for the girls because Maki, Pipkins and Browning were all part of the relay last year that finished runner-up by a two hundredths of a second. The Eagles were also a leg short in the relay. Chanel Miller suffered an injury in the Section 3AA meet and she was unable to participate. “I think we gave all we had to make up for it and win it for her,” Browning said. The girls ran an all-time Minnesota best of 47.53 at the Section 3AA meet a week earlier. Browning received a medal of every color at state. She finished second in the 200 and third place in the 100. “I can’t be disappointed finishing first, second and third,” Browning said. “It’s

really exciting. “A lot came from the support I had today from friends and family. I was just excited to be in the finals.” The 4x200 finished in eighth, and Hannah Linder was seventh in the pole vault.

Eastview The Lightning finished 12 points behind Apple Valley in 12th place. Alex Beckman got Eastview the most points with a fifth-place finish in the 100 and third in the triple jump. She was also part of the 4x100 relay with Paris Sanders, Leah Nesheim and Claire Elliott that finished third. Erica Bestul ran to ninth in both the 1600 and the 800.

Rosemount The Irish finished in 22nd with 16 points coming from Shade Pratt (fourth in the 400) and the 4x400 (second with Thana Hussein, Rachel Snow, Hannah Grim and Shade Pratt).
