Dragons By Pat Garry, StaffWriter The girls took to the road last Tuesday, Sept. 13, and dropped a tough-fought match to Litchfield, 3-1. Set scores were 25-23, 20-25, 20-25, and 23-25. It was a good, close battle all night, as both teams scored at least 20 points in each of the sets. "We struggled to find con- sistency in our play. We had too many service and hitting errors, while still missing one of our set- ters and one of our liberoes," said Coach Tabitha Mortenson. Match highlights include Madi Hurrle with 10 kills and Kenzie Leither with 9 kills. Madi Hurrle had 4 blocks as did Caitlin O'Brien. Emma Kuechle had 15 set assists.

Sept. 15 win against Eden Valley- High school juniors sought for Capitol page program By Rep. ]eff Howe The application deadline is Dec. 2 for high school juniors interested in gaining hands-on experience with Minnesota's state government by serving as a page at the Capitol in St. Paul during the 2017 legislative session. The House of Representatives page program has been in place since 1975 and is one of only a select few programs in the nation to provide young people with such an in-depth look into state govern- ment. High school pages attend meetings with legislators, assist members during the session, par- ticipate in mock committee ses- sions and more. There are 10 four- day sessions available in 2017, from early February until late April. "This is one of those opportuni- ties for local students to take what they have learned in the classroom and see it in action," said Rep. Jeff Howe, R-Rockville. "There really is no better way than the page pro- gram for a young student to get an up-close look at our state govern- ment. I hope we have some local students at the Capitol during the 2017 session." Program participants are selected in the fall of each year based on a formal process which includes an application, faculty recommendation and an essay. Stipends are available to defray expenses. More information is available by logging on to www. house.ran and clicking the "High School Page Program" link near the bottom of the site, or by calling (651) 296-7452. Local schools also can provide further guidance.
