An Apple Valley man accused of murdering his pregnant wife will see trial in the fall. A Dakota County district court hearing this week for Roger Holland, 36, set his trial date for Oct. 7. Holland was indicted in April by a Dakota County grand jury with two counts of first-degree murder and two counts of second-degree murder in connection with the March 7 death of his wife, Margorie Ann Holland, 37, and her unborn child. The indictment came Roger after the medical examin- Holland er determined that Margorie Holland died by strangulation and not a fall down the stairs at their townhome on 157th Street West as Roger Holland has claimed, according to the Dakota County Attorney’s Office. Medical personnel and police officers observed numerous injuries on Margorie Holland’s body, including bruising and abrasions on her head, face, hands, legs, ankles and feet. Roger Holland claimed he found his wife face down on the floor wrapped in a blanket and non-responsive at the bottom of a staircase inside their townhome upon his return to the residence after purchasing breakfast for them. Holland allegedly called 911 at approximately 9:55 a.m. March 7 to report that his wife was lying at the bottom of a flight of stairs and was not breathing.

INDEX

Honor student Dan Spika to be commencement speaker June 1

Most people will recognize Eastview 2013 graduate Mathew Gweh as soccer superstar, one of the top players in the class of 2013 in all of Minnesota. He was a member of the 2011 Eastview soccer team that finished second in the Class AA state tournament, which earned him several player of the year awards. He’s also a star with the Minnesota Thunder Academy elite club team. The road to his graduation on Saturday from Eastview High School has had many twists and turns, but as the driver, Gweh never took his eyes off the

road. Gweh wasn’t born in Apple Valley. In fact, he didn’t know how to spell “apple’ until about seven years ago. Gweh lived in Liberia and New Guinea before moving to Minnesota when he was in the fifth grade. “When I think back I laugh,” Gweh said. “I didn’t know anything at all when I moved here. I had never gone to school before. I didn’t know how to spell the word ‘the.’ All the kids were doing their schoolwork and I thought they were all geniuses. I really wanted to know what they were doing.” See GWEH, 8A

The free event will include music, refreshments, fun and games. For more information, go to www.kidsnkinship.org.

Tree inspections Apple Valley tree inspectors will check for trees infected with Dutch elm disease and oak wilt from June 1 until fall leaf color changes occur. Diseased trees will be identified with an orange paint ring and property owners notified by mail. City ordinance requires actively infected red oak and elm trees to be removed and disposed of to minimize disease spread. The city has an approved

cost share program available to residents for financial assistance with contracted expenses for specific disease prevention treatments and tree removal costs. About 260 diseased red oaks and elms were identified and removed from public and private properties in Apple Valley in 2012. Early symptoms of oak wilt and Dutch elm disease are wilting leaves that turn pale green, yellow, and brown; and then fall to the ground prematurely. Wilting often begins on individual branches and then spreads throughout the tree canopy. With the known infestations of emerald ash borer in the metro area, attention will also be given to ash trees with disease symptoms. Early detection, tree removal and disposal are important control measures for managing emerald ash borer. Ash trees infected with emerald ash borer are subject to the same city ordinance requirements. To learn more about tree issues or the city’s cost share program, go to www. cityofapplevalley.org.

Opinion DFL Party spends political capital it earned at ballot box There was a sea change in the political landscape in 2012 when voters handed the DFL Party a majority in both houses of the Legislature to partner with DFL Gov. Mark Dayton. If there was any doubt that the party in control would retreat from its campaign promises, the legislative session that ended Monday, May 20, put those doubts to rest. When the session ended at 11:59 p.m. May 20, a $38.8 billion budget for the next two years was passed. It represents an 8.8 percent increase in state spending. The action requires $2.1 billion in new taxes, thanks largely to a 2 percent income tax hike on top income earners. The new budget includes $485 million in new state funding to E-12 education, $441 million in property tax relief, plugs a $627 million state budget hole, provides $250 million in new funding for higher education while freezing tuition costs for two years at the University of Minnesota and the 31 public colleges that represent the Minnesota State Colleges and Universities system. The new budget also increases funding for nursing homes. Democrats will say the new budget creates a fairer tax climate that requires the wealthy pay more while easing the burden on the middle class. Property tax

ECM Editorial relief will end a decade-old trend that witnessed an 86 percent growth in a tax that hits the middle class, small business and senior citizens the hardest. The new budget provides funding for school districts that elect to provide a free all-day, every day kindergarten program and directs new money to pre-K and special education programs. This editorial board is on record supporting the all-day, every day kindergarten program and additional funding for pre-K programs and believes the funding increases to support them are warranted. Republicans will say the new spending is an overreach, kills job growth in the state and stalls what is a slowly growing economy. They argue that the steps taken last year worked without raising taxes. The new budget is no more than pay-back to labor groups that helped the DFL gain power, Republicans say. Democrats counter that their plan is far from anti-business as it cuts $346 million in unemployment insurance taxes, pumps $30 million into the Minnesota Investment Fund as a measure to lure new businesses to the state and assist

growth of existing businesses and supports the Mayo Clinic Destination Medical Center project in Rochester. The latter calls for a state investment of up to $400 million that will leverage more than $6 billion in private and public investments tied to the world-famous Mayo Clinic. Other state businesses, including the Mall of America in Bloomington, will see help with expansion efforts. Some tax concessions were made by the DFL. A sales tax on clothing and a hefty tax on the wholesale prices of beer and liquor both fell by the wayside. There was no such luck for cigarettes, however, as smokers now face a tax increase of $1.60 per pack. Dayton early in the session abandoned his call for a series of business-to-business taxes that drew heated complaints. Efforts to broaden the sales tax base while lowering the rate failed. After failing to secure the votes for an $800 million state bonding program, the Legislature regrouped in the final hours to pass a patchwork bill totaling $156 million. It includes $109 million to continue the State Capitol restoration efforts. Lawmakers who voted to delay projects benefiting outstate regions will need to explain their reasons. Opposition to tax increases may not

be the sole rallying cry for Republicans when the full House of Representatives and the governor stand for election next year. We have not heard the last of controversial moves to approve gay marriage and allow some child care workers and personal care attendants the right to vote on collective bargaining. Both measures define the political and philosophical differences of most Republicans and Democrats. The DFL spent the political capital won at the ballot box in 2012. It is clear Democrats were aided by the political fallout of a state government shutdown and a pair of constitutional ballot amendments that energized their base in 2012. Now it could well be the Republicans that have found new energy, thanks to gay marriage and union issues. Is the pendulum of power that swung to the left in 2012 about to swing to the right? When the ballots are counted in 2014, we will know if the DFL overreached or if the public was truly convinced that the Republican way was the wrong way. This is an opinion from the ECM Editorial Board. Sun Thisweek and the Dakota County Tribune are part of ECM Publishers.

The 2013 Legislature’s legacy starts with a question: Why? by David C. Olson SPECIAL TO SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

The Minnesota Legislature has adjourned, leaving a trail of votes certain to negatively impact all businesses and all Minnesotans. Please ask your elected officials: Why? The Minnesota Chamber of Commerce and our statewide network of local chambers knew we’d be challenged by Gov. Mark Dayton and the new legislative leadership. Our worst fears were realized – and then some. The leaders convened in January promising, in their words, to abandon the failed policies and political overreach of the past decade. The governor, along with House Speaker Paul Thissen and Senate Majority Leader Tom Bakk, pledged to return Minnesota on a path to prosperity. The legislative scorecard is mindboggling. The ill effects of the policies enacted – from taxes/spending and health care to education and workforce, environment and energy, and a host of issues in between – will be felt by all Minnesotans. There were alternatives. We can do better.

Guest Columnist

David C. Olson

Why did the Legislature raise permanent taxes by more than $2 billion to resolve a $627 million short-term deficit? They could have adopted a balanced approach by going through the budget line by line, eliminating unnecessary and wasteful spending. Why shouldn’t K-12 teachers have to pass a basic skills test before they enter a classroom? All students merit having the most effective teachers. Why was sales tax on business-tobusiness transactions imposed on certain industries, burdening them with these uncompetitive costs in order to provide sales-tax exemptions to local governments? These business-to-business taxes will result in driving jobs and business opportunities out of Minnesota as most

states do not impose these costs. This is especially worrisome given the April unemployment report which showed the loss of 11,400 Minnesota jobs with weakness noted in the same industries now being impacted by these new taxes. Why did we need to create another state agency with nearly 100 full-time employees to manage the new health insurance exchange – at a cost of $60 million that will be financed entirely by a tax on small businesses and individuals’ health care premiums? An exchange operated by the private sector could have achieved the same goals at far lower cost. Why did we need to raise solar energy standards and increase electricity costs for businesses and residences? Minnesota already has among the most aggressive renewable energy mandates in the nation. Why are we raising corporate income taxes on the Minnesota-based corporations that we value so highly in our state? Minnesota’s tax rate already ranks third highest in the nation; other states and nations are working to lower tax burdens. These examples are but a glimpse of the new laws that should be disturbing to all Minnesotans. Join with us, as the

leader of the United for Jobs Coalition, and ask your legislators the tough questions. There were better alternatives. Our Minnesota Chamber Federation worked with legislators all session long to recommend measures to strengthen our economy for the benefit of all Minnesotans. In the end, the governor and legislative leaders rejected nearly all suggestions aimed to prioritize, reform and redesign government operations. We are left with tired strategies that promise little hope for growing our economy. Minnesota cannot afford to raise the cost of doing business. Minnesota lost 14,700 jobs in March and April; our job growth numbers are lagging behind the U.S. average of 1.6 percent. The economic recovery remains fragile. As neighboring states are erecting billboards on our borders welcoming business, what message is Minnesota sending? Quite the opposite, I am afraid. David C. Olson is president of the Minnesota Chamber of Commerce. More is at www.mnchamber.com. Columns reflect the opinion of the author.

Letters Solar energy standards good To the editor: Recently, the Omnibus Clean Energy and Jobs bill was passed by the Minnesota Legislature setting a standard of 1.5 percent solar power in Minnesota by 2020 and a goal of 10 percent solar energy by 2030.   This is a huge victory for Minnesota and a big step in moving the entire nation toward more renewable energy and less dirty coal burning that is polluting our air and water, and making our citizens ill. Minnesotans have shown their support in moving toward renewable energy in order to create job opportunities, reduce our reliance on burning coal, and make solar power more efficient and more cost effective.   Using renewable energy is not only going to reduce air and water pollution from burning coal and extracting natural gas, it will be more cost effective for

consumers, make it easier to produce local energy, and help Minnesota move toward the future of renewable energy by making us a national leader in solar and wind power job market.   Unfortunately, this standard exempts electric cooperatives, such as Dakota Electric, which powers the majority of homes in the southeast metro area, resulting in a loss of economic development opportunities in those communities. This is important to me and many other Minnesotans because our reliance on burning coal and natural gas to generate electricity has had a significant impact on climate change and is creating more health-related issues due to pollution of waterways and air. In this technological day and age we are very capable of finding improved, cleaner, and even cheaper ways to generate energy by using solar and wind resources that have always been and always will be readily available

to us.  If we want to see a truly well spent. cleaner, healthier, happier life for future generations, LYNDA MACKIE we need to continue to Apple Valley fight for renewable energy to reduce pollution in the Paving Lebanon environment.

Every student deserves opportunities To the editor: In an ideal world, every student in our schools would have an Individual Education Plan. At the very least, we need to press our legislative representatives to make certain that every school district has the funding to adequately provide planning for special needs children. This program not only helps the “special” child, but is a benefit for the entire student population and a great support for our already overworked teachers. It is taxpayer money

To the editor: As a 13-year Dakota County resident and frequent Lebanon Hills Regional Park visitor, I have often lost myself in its scenery and tranquility. This park is appreciated by many others for what it offers and what it lacks. Lebanon Hills allows people to find a piece of nature that is disappearing far too fast. The lack of paved bike trails means people must make and effort and walk in order to access its beauty. Many times this park has been called an “urban Boundary Waters” due to its lakes and wilderness feel. In northern Minnesota, that feeling has been created by the lack of motors on the lakes. In Lebanon Hills it is due to the lack of paved trails and bikes. The money allocated for this path could be used for restoration and maintenance. If a bike path is a necessity, then concentrate on the perimeter of the park where impact will be minimal. There are many other trails in Dakota County to bike and enjoy the easy access to nature. But there are very few places a person can experience a wilderness-like moment. As City Pages praised: “True escape is hard to come by in the Twin Cities metro, but no place comes closer than Lebanon Hills. The park is huge: almost 2,000 acres, with 14 miles of heavily wooded trails wending around more

than a dozen placid lakes and ponds. It’s big enough to allow a genuine sense of isolation and wildness.” Once this park is bisected by a paved trail, the feeling of solitude will be severely compromised, and this large park will “feel” much smaller. Yes, it will allow greater access for bikers and in-line skaters, but at what cost? This path will become a transportation line for people wanting to cross the park. The “Foverver Wild” feeling that is so prominently referenced for Dakota County Parks will be lost. A paved trail will eliminate what is special about Lebanon Hills and make it just like every other park. I strongly encourage the county to please reconsider its plans for paving this place of beauty. BRIAN BROSS Lakeville

Many flaws in Lebanon Hills trail plan

my trips. First time I saw campers in the last nine months was last night, and I don’t think any of them will be using the beach this Memorial Day weekend. The cost of this has been documented and just does not generate the type of return or benefit to the community that we must expect in our current state of affairs. I ask that we come together as a community to build a unique experience with Lebanon Hills that will continue to meet the needs of its current yearround users as well as prepare and protect it for generations to come.

Alternate fuels can help in many ways To the editor: Recent proposals to partially enclose the future pro football stadium in the Twin Cities may be taking account of freakish weather happening in Minnesota. We’ve seen a long, cold spring, and heavy precipitation this year, as we passed 400 parts per million of carbon in our atmosphere. Warm summer (and fall and winter) temperatures may be resulting in heavier than usual storms, like the one in Oklahoma, and “stalled” weather fronts, according to weather scientists. The more we can use alternate, non-combustible fuel sources, the more likely we are to be able to stabilize our weather patterns.

To the editor: With regard to the recently discussed plans to pave portions of the trails in Lebanon Hills Regional Park, this is an outdated plan that dissects one of the great gems lefts in our Twin Cities. I’ve been told it is to connect the campground and beach for bikers. There is already a connection point around the park. Beyond that, this would impact visitors only for about three months of the year. In the past nine months, I have run a 7-mile loop through the park every weekend (except for two I missed) and saw other hikers and run- PAUL HOFFINGER ners out there every one of Eagan

A former Rosemount man who lost nearly everything he owned after a tornado ripped through Moore, Okla., on May 20, is trying to rebuild his life back home. Randall Weidner, 38, a Minnesota quarterhorse and thoroughbred trainer, shot a cellphone picture of the twister in his rearview mirror as he drove out of its path minutes before it destroyed the barn where the six horses he owned and six others he was training died. In addition to the horses, Weidner lost his truck, trailer, saddles, racing equipment and personal possessions in the storm. He returned to the place where the Celestial Acres Training Center barn once stood prior to the tornado rushing through and he could see some of the estimated 100 horses that had died including his own. A benefit will be held at Canterbury Park on Wednesday, June 5, to help Weidner and his girlfriend

Area Briefs Construction update for Fairview Ridges Hospital in Burnsville

Property tax payments due date extended for some businesses

Construction is underway at Fairview Ridges Hospital to add a 133,000-square-foot specialty care center and upgrade the existing hospital building. On May 28, the city of Burnsville began construction on two new pedestrian crosswalks across Nicollet Boulevard. The existing crosswalk temporarily moved from the east side to the west side of the intersection and traffic lanes will periodically close. Construction of both crosswalks, including pedestrian-controlled rapid rectangular flashing beacons and inground spotlight devices, is expected to take four to five weeks. The city of Burnsville approved a new traffic plan to alleviate construction-related traffic on Nicollet Boulevard and Fairview Drive. Construction trucks will now approach and leave the south side of the hospital via a new temporary entrance, and exit to Arthur Terrace. An official groundbreaking ceremony will be held on the Fairview Ridges Hospital campus at 9 a.m. Tuesday, July 9.

With the unexpected late arrival of spring, resorts and other seasonal business owners have an additional two weeks to pay their first-half property taxes. Due to legislation signed into law this session, commercial property owners who have been affected by the slow start to the summer season have until June 15 to make their first-half property tax payment without penalty. The extension applies to owners of commercial seasonal residential recreational property classified as 1c or 4c property. It also applies to seasonal commercial property classified as 3a property, if over 60 percent of its 2012 gross income was earned during the months of May, June, July and August. Owners of seasonal recreational property will need to submit an affidavit to their payment stating that they meet the income conditions in order to be eligible for the extension. For more information, call your county at the number listed on your property tax statement.

Sobering message at Eastview

Former Farmington day care provider faces manslaughter charges by Theresa Malloy SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

she saw the child was on his side in the bed and left him in that position. Graupmann found the child, “cold to the touch, his lips were blue, and he had blood around his nose when she picked him up,” the complaint said. Graupmann told police she “should not have laid him in the bed” multiple times, the complaint reports. The child’s mother told police she had specifically asked Graupmann to always put her son to sleep on his back. The parents told police they never saw their son turn over on his stomach or side. An autopsy ruled the death as accidental by “probable positional asphyxiation,” according to the complaint. The felony charges each hold up to 10 years and $20,000, and the gross misdemeanor charges hold up to one year and $3,000 fine. Graupmann’s trial is scheduled for Sept. 9.

A Farmington woman faces manslaughter charges relating to the death of a 3-month-old baby who stopped breathing at her home day care on July 31, 2012. Rebecca Lynn Graupmann, 45, faces two felony counts of second-degree manslaughter and three gross misdemeanor charges for endangerment of a child, neglect and interference with a death scene. The criminal complaint details the following events: Farmington Rescue responded to a call that a child had stopped breathing and was unable to be resuscitated. Graupmann allegedly told police initially that the child fell asleep in a car seat. As a detective photographed the day care home, he noticed a wet spot with what appeared to be blood in another bed in the house.

At the time, he was thankful to be alive. Gweh remembers leaving Liberia in the midst of war when he was about 6. The chaos didn’t end there. His family moved to New Guinea “where a tornado collapsed the building I was in,” Gweh said. “That almost cost me my life. I was too young to get out and people started running over me. That was one of the closest I’ve come to death.” He couldn’t escape tragedy in Minnesota either. In 2008 while living in Fridley, his closest cousin was shot to death. “That deeply touched me,” Gweh said. “I don’t go a day without seeing his name in my mind.” Through the years he studied hard, and his talent on the soccer field blossomed, which led him to the Minnesota Thunder Academy, a member of the U.S. Soccer Development Academy. The past few years, he’s played against the top youth clubs in the country and internationally. Before his sophomore year, Gweh’s grandmother decided to move to Iowa. “Here I was playing on a good soccer team with the Thunder and I didn’t want to stop and start all over,” Gweh said. “I told my mom I didn’t want to move and she agreed. I wanted to live a better life, and soccer and school could give me a better life. I’ve put everything into soccer and school.” One of his Thunder coaches Rob Zahl offered to help. “I can’t put into words HELMY, from 1A

how much he helped me,” Gweh said. “He offered to stay with him.” That led him to Eastview his sophomore year. It was a good fit. As a junior in 2011 he was named the Gatorade Boys Soccer Player of the Year in Minnesota. The elite soccer season extended through fall, so he was unable to play with the Eastview varsity team his senior year. “I sometimes feel like a celebrity at Eastview,” Gweh said. “Everyone welcomed me with a smile. The staff knows me. I wanted to stay away from trouble and just focus on school and Eastview has been perfect for that.” After playing a tournament in Florida with the Minnesota Thunder, Gweh was approached by High Point University in North Carolina where he was offered a scholarship to play Division I soccer. “I’m overexcited,” Gweh said. “They have a really good soccer program. The school is like nothing I’ve ever seen before. It’s like a paradise.” He so excited that he’s plans to be there June 27 to start summer school and soccer practice. Gweh didn’t take soccer seriously until he moved to Minnesota in 2005, and it’s still secondary on his list of priorities. “Moving here, we didn’t have a lot,” Gweh said. “I realized soccer was my golden ticket to college. I did a lot of work in school to get there.” While he was scoring goals and raking in the accomplishments on the soccer field, Gweh was also gathering academic awards.

He received academic letters the past two years. “Soccer is important to me but I feel school is more important,” Gweh said. “I won’t play soccer forever. School is something that will stay with me until I’m old. Math became his favorite subject saying he could do it for hours, and at High Point he plans to major in business. “I’ve taken a lot of business courses at Eastview and they’ve taught me to think outside the box,” Gweh said. “One day I’d like to open my own business. I have some crazy ideas in mind. Maybe one day I’d like to go back to Liberia and open up a business. Everything that happened with the civil war and reconstruction, I want to help the country become what it once was, and help those people recovering from the war.” As his days at Eastview comes to a close, he’s excited to turn the page. “I’m more than ready to start the next chapter in my life,” he said. “Most of my future goals are in line, and I’m ready to accomplish them. Graduating from college and starting a business for myself, most of that is going to happen in the next few years. I’m very excited to go to college and start life.” His advice for those he’s leaving behind and those moving on is: “Everything will work out through school. Anybody in my situation, who had a rough past and wants to stay out of trouble, make school your best friend.”

Sports Eastview squeaks past Irish in playoff opener Small ball is useful for defending state baseball champs by Mike Shaughnessy SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

On Tuesday afternoon, Eastview and Rosemount showed why bunting still has a place in baseball. Executing bunts and defending against bunts proved decisive as defending state Class AAA champion Eastview opened the Section 3 playoffs with a 3-2, eight-inning victory over Rosemount at Alimagnet Park in Burnsville. The Lightning ran themselves out of the sixth inning when an attempted two-strike suicide squeeze misfired, trapping a runner between third and home. That left the score at 2-2, where it remained until the bottom of the eighth. A.J. Stockwell led off the eighth with a single and advanced to second on Cole McDevitt’s single. Rhett Hebig then pushed a bunt down the third-base line and the throw to first sailed wide of the bag, allowing Stockwell to score the winning run. With teams having little opportunity to practice outside during the regular season because of fickle weather, the ability to execute on plays such as that becomes even more important. “We can work on a few of those things in the gym, but it was nice to be outside and practice those situations before the playoffs,” said Eastview coach Tom Strey, whose team had six days off before its playoff opener. Eastview (13-7) was scheduled to play Burnsville on Wednesday as the double-elimination portion of the section tournament continued. Rosemount (9-11) was to face Eagan in an elimina-

The Irish twice had one-run leads in Tuesday’s game, and were stung by the way it finished. “It’ll take a while to get the guys back up (emotionally), especially after the way this one ended,” Rosemount coach Chris Swansson said. Going into Tuesday, Rosemount had a 7-2 record in one-run games, so a low-scoring playoff game figured to be to the Irish’s liking. Although they had lost to Eastview twice during the regular season, the second game was by 4-3. “The last two times we played Eastview, we thought we were right there with them,” Swansson said. In Tuesday’s game, both starting pitchers were still there at the end. Eastview senior Grant Martinson lowered his ERA to 1.19 by holding Rosemount to five hits and one earned run. “Grant pitched really well, and that was good to see,” Strey said. “There

have been a couple of games we lost in the bottom of the seventh after we took him out. “We’ve been watching pitch counts pretty closely this year but we were comfortable with letting Grant pitch eight innings. He probably wouldn’t pitch again before next week anyway.” Rosemount junior Ben Smith pitched a three-hitter in the Irish’s 3-2 firstround section victory over Simley on May 24, then sophomore Luke Dahl gave them a chance to win on Tuesday. “Those are two pitchers we’re excited about for the future,” Swansson said. “Luke had command of all his pitches. He didn’t pitch like a sophomore today.” Stockwell was 2-for-3 and scored the game-winning run, and Eastview senior Ryan Heisler went 3-for-3. Eastview, the third seed in the section, was scheduled to start junior Marcus Frederickson on the mound against Burnsville.

Eastview’s teams finished second and fourth in the South Suburban Conference track and field championships that concluded May 23 at Eagan High School. The Lightning boys, led by victories by seniors Miles Witcher and Ryan Lockard, finished second at the conference finals 15 points behind SSC champion Rosemount. Seniors Allie Funk and Melita Ware were field event winners for the girls, who were fourth in the conference meet. Witcher broke a conference record in the boys 110-meter hurdles, finishing in 14.85 seconds. His time of 14.96 in the preliminaries also broke the previous SSC record. Witcher added a third place in the 300 hurdles in 41.36. Lockard won the conference high jump championship, clearing 6 feet, 6 inches, which was 7 inches

higher than the runner-up. He added a second place in the long jump at 209.25. Eastview sophomore Leron Norton was runnerup in the 400. Thomas Cole was second in the 300 hurdles, and Nicholas Oelke finished third in the 1,600 and 3,200. Joseph Grimm had a third place in the high jump. Ware went 36-8.25 in the girls triple jump to win the event by 6 inches. She also placed second in the 300 hurdles and fifth in the 100 dash. In the girls pole vault, which had to be completed the day after the conference finals because of bad weather, Funk cleared 11-0 to place first. She was within 3 inches of the conference record. Eastview senior Erica Bestul was runner-up in the girls 800 in 2:18.81. Both Bestul and conference champion Kaytlyn Larson of Lakeville South, who ran 2:17.86, beat the previous conference record.

Megan Boehm, a junior, was second in the long jump. Ninth-grader Natalie Manders took second in the discus and third in the shot put. Eastview is competing this week in the Section 3AA meet at the University of St. Thomas. Most of the finals were to take place Thursday, after this edition went to press. A few events in the section meet had their finals Tuesday. Oelke placed fourth in the boys 3,200. Matthew Montgomery was third in the boys pole vault, one spot short of qualifying for state. Manders qualified for state in girls discus with a second-place throw of 133-8. Kelly Smith was third in the girls high jump, missing out on second place – and a spot at state – on a tie-breaker. Margie Freed was fifth in the girls 3,200. Email Mike Shaughnessy at mike.shaughnessy@ecminc.com.

Two AV athletes win their way to state track meet Charles, Mattison win on first day of Section 3AA by Mike Shaughnessy SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

Two Apple Valley athletes already are in the state track and field meet after winning events at the Section 3AA meet Tuesday afternoon.

Preliminaries were held for most running events Tuesday at the University of St. Thomas. But several field events, as well as the boys and girls 3,200-meter races, held their finals. Finals for all other events were to take place Thursday, after this edition went to press. The Eagles’ Scott Mattison (pole vault) and Jordan Charles (triple jump) won section championships Tuesday. Mattison

was one of two vaulters to clear 13 feet and won the section championship on a tiebreaker. Charles dominated in the triple jump, winning the event by more than 2 feet. He traveled 45 feet, 8.25 inches on his best jump. Senior Nick Hughes was fifth in the 3,200 and junior Jacob Teske was fifth in the shot put. On the girls side, ninth-grader Olivia Anger placed sixth in

the 3,200. Apple Valley’s teams also competed in the South Suburban Conference championships last week at Eagan High School. The boys team, which went in as defending champion, placed fourth this year. Apple Valley was eighth in the girls team standings. The Eagle boys’ best individual finishes were second places by Dom McDew-Stauffer

in the discus, Mattison in the pole vault and Justice Walton in the high jump. A.J. Hill, Quinn Hooks, Steven Wilson and Da’Shawn Lewis finished second in the 4x100 relay. Senior Megan Maki was runner-up in the girls 100 dash. Anger placed third in the 3,200. Email Mike Shaughnessy at mike.shaughnessy@ecm-inc.com.

Goodwill Duals coming Glove work key to Blaze’s playoff victory to Apple Valley Baseball team talent over there, and it seemed like they were evEvent showcases top youth wrestlers from 2 states

A number of top youth wrestlers from Minnesota and Wisconsin will compete Saturday in the annual Goodwill Duals at Hayes Arena in Apple Valley. Approximately 60 wrestlers from the two states will compete in eight dual meets, with action starting at noon. The wrestlers, ages 11-12, have competed successfully in state tournaments and many have been in regional and national meets. Minnesota and Wisconsin each will field two teams, an “A” and “B” team. Each team will wrestle the two teams from the other state in freestyle and Greco-Roman meets, meaning some individuals could compete as many as four times on Saturday. Three wrestlers from Apple Valley and two from Lakeville will be on the Minnesota teams. Ap-

ple Valley wrestlers competing are Paxton Creese, Regan Schrempp and Cael Swensen. The Lakeville residents are Phil Skeps and Willy Bastyr. Two Apple Valley youth coaches, Rudy James and Eric Swensen, will help coach the Minnesota teams. The event alternates between sites in Minnesota and Wisconsin. At last year’s Goodwill Duals in Wisconsin, the Wisconsin “A” team went 4-0. Minnesota’s “A” and “B” teams both went 2-2. This year’s competition originally was scheduled for Augsburg College but had to be moved because the Augsburg facility was double-booked. Organizers looked at the Mall of America as an alternate site, but Apple Valley wrestling boosters arranged to rent Hayes Arena. – Mike Shaughnessy

defeats Eagan 5-1

by Mike Shaughnessy SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

Burnsville baseball coach Mick Scholl said he has the utmost confidence in all of his starting pitchers. But if he had to pick one for a big game, he said he’d go with lefthander Aaron Rozek – not only for Rozek’s ability on the mound, but because it allows Cooper Maas and Tyler Hanson to play the infield. Hanson and Maas also pitch for the Blaze, but Scholl said he especially likes their work on the left side of the infield. The two Division I-bound players (Maas to North Dakota, Hanson to Minnesota) helped support Rozek with their defense in a 5-1 victory over Eagan on Tuesday night in the Section 3AAA playoffs. Hanson, the third baseman, contributed a couple of diving stops, while Maas showed range at shortstop, including charging a grounder, picking it up and throwing in one motion to get the final out. Burnsville’s offense also helped Rozek, scoring five runs in the first four innings. As for the key to the game, “I’d say the left side of our infield,” Scholl said. “Between Cooper and Tyler, there’s a lot of

they’re not playing like sophomores anymore,” Scholl said. “They’re playing at a high level now.” Eagan got into the double-elimination portion of the section tournament with a 2-0 victory over 10th-seeded Lakeville South on Friday. Junior Tyler Godes pitched a complete game for the Wildcats. Six teams from the South Suburban Conference (Burnsville, Eastview, Eagan, Lakeville North, Rosemount and Prior Lake) and two from the Classic Suburban Conference (St. Thomas

Academy and Henry Sibley) started the doubleelimination portion of the section tourney. The South Suburban is trying to continue a streak of having a team in the state Class AAA title game every year since the conference started operating in the fall of 2009. Burnsville lost in the 2010 Class AAA championship game and won the title the following year. Eastview won the 2012 state championship. Email Mike Shaughnessy at mike.shaughnessy@ecminc.com.

erywhere tonight.” Burnsville also got some contributions from sophomores, such as when outfielder Eric Watters threw to catcher Camden Traetow to cut down an Eagan runner at the plate. The Blaze (15-4), seeded second in the section, was to play third-seeded Eastview in a winners’ bracket game Wednesday at Alimagnet Park, with the winner advancing to the winners’ bracket final at 7 p.m. Saturday, also at Alimagnet Park. Eagan (10-11) was to take on Rosemount in an elimination game Wednesday. Lakeville North (15-3), the section’s top seed, was to play St. Thomas Academy on Wednesday in a winners’ bracket game. Burnsville was expected to start Maas on the mound against Eastview. Maas had a completegame victory over the Lightning in the final game of the regular season last week. Although Burnsville was the favorite in Tuesday’s game against seventh-seeded Eagan, the Wildcats appeared to have an experience advantage. Eagan had 14 seniors on its playoff roster, compared to eight for Burnsville. The Blaze has five sophomores on its postseason roster, several of whom will have key roles in this year’s playoff run. “Our sophomores,

Kelsey is new to the game of lacrosse. She came out for the first time last year as a freshman and was planning on playing as a field player. She is an accomplished hockey player and decided to give lacrosse a try. After a few games, the coaches were in need of a steady goalie and by watching her perform in the field and noticing her combination of athleticism and hand eye coordination we suggested that she put on the helmet and try goalie. Most players would balk at that notion because who really wants a solid rubber ball hurling at them at break neck speeds. However, Kelsey jumped at the chance and she has not come out of the nets since. She finished her freshman year strong, but recently has really begun to hit her stride as one of the top goalies in the state. She is one of the big reasons the Cougars are 11-0, SSC conference champions and ranked #3 in the state. She is currently #6 in the state for save percentages, #4 in goal percentages and tied for first in wins with 11. In her most recent game, she was able to hold a very powerful Lakeville North team to 4 first half goals on her way to a 10-9 win.
