EV-W-K girls' and boys' track teams brilliant at B-B-E meet By Pat Garry, Staff writer Each placing second in the Belgrade-Brooten-Elrosa Lions 7-team invitational track meet Tuesday night, April 30, the Eden Valley-Watkins-Kimball boys' and girls' track teams are starting the new season on the right "feet". The athletes took to the great outdoors and the competition in Belgrade was exciting. Boys' coach Jason Mortenson is very pleased with the squad's improvement. "Our relays are starting to take shape and our individuals are pretty much in place. Right now we are working on our depth and trying to find strong second and third participants in events, to help our team score, as we head to our CMC meet in two weeks. Maple Lake is incredibly tough, but we are going to get as tough as we can to com- pete with them and see what hap- pens." The relay teams consist of Austin Marx, DJ Stewart, Bran- don Faber and Shadly Callahan in the 4x800; Tommy Lochen, Torey Rohloff, Cole Denn and Deshaun James in the 4x200; Alex Shoen- wetter, Torey Rohloff, Cole Denn and John Salzl in the 4x100; and Shadley Callahan, Austin Marx, Torey Rohloff and Austin Pelkey in the 4x400. Girls' coach Gordy Schlangen was impressed by his team's effort. "It was a very good meet with great effort by all the girls. Our times are getting better. Our throw- ers, disc and shot, were outstand- ing last night. Our mid-distance, 300H and 400, were very good. And our 800 times are improving. Field events are continuing to get their footwork and forms together. It was good competition, and we came quite close to first place Maple Lake, which is a very strong team."

Maple Lake hitters jumped out of the dugout and swiped a 4-0 first-inning lead. En-route to the rainbow's end, the Irish found gold as they ral- lied for six more runs in the third, behind Dustin Strub's perfect 3 for 3 efforts. The ambush culminated in a 10-hit 10-run massacre by Maple Lake in game one. Landon Caughey picked up the win, allow- ing just three hits, while fanning six. Eagles coach Mike Tomsche is optimistic and realistic. "It was  a tough night. We are playing hard but not playing at the level we need to. We were short on pitching last Game 1: EV-W Eagles (0) at Maple Lake Irish (10) night which didn't help either. Our goal is to keep playing hard, improve each week and hopefully pick up some wins in our upcom- ing games." The Eagles managed just three hits, sending a mere 19 hitters to the plate. EV-W's Austin Schlangen and Nick Pauly shared the pitching duties in game two, but it didn't seem to matter how many differ- ert pitchers the Maple Lake hitters faced in the 8-1 shellacking. There was no luck involved in the Irish numbers, rallying for 7 earned runs, while collecting 7 hits, and earning 7 walks. Dylan Kotilinek took the complete game win, fac- ing only 27 men, surrendering 1 run on 3 hits and striking out 8.
