(NEW)  BOYS VARSITY HOCKEY DEFEATS LAKEVILLE SOUTH 

The Boys Varsity Hockey team (8-7-1) earned an impressive 4-3 road win over Lakeville South to avenge their earlier conference loss.  The Lightning jumped out to a quick 2-0 lead on a pair of goals by Ryan Quaintance (Assists to Josh Eernisse (2), Gabe Tritschler, and Caden EspindaBanick).  Josh Eernisse added his 14 goal of the season (Assists to Quaintance and Ben Malloy) as the teams headed into the third period tied 3-3.  Just seven seconds into the final period off the center ice face-off, Josh Eernisse added the eventual game-winning goal on a nifty passing play from EspindaBanick and Malloy.  Bennett Weestrand shut the door down the stretch in goal to preserve the win for the Lightning.  The next tilt for the squad is a key conference game against Burnsville on Thursday at 7pm at the AVSA.  Standing Room Only tickets go on sale one hour prior to puck drop.  #whateverittakes; #17-7-1

 

(NEW) EASTVIEW HIGH SCHOOL GIRLS VARSITY HOCKEY FALLS TO LAKEVILLE SOUTH HIGH SCHOOL 3-2 

The #18 Lightning’s 10 game unbeaten streak ended Saturday night at #13 Lakeville South, 2-3.

The Lightning started strong, controlling much of the first period and outshooting South 13-9. Two South goals in the last minute of the period, however, put the Cougars up 0-2 at the break.

As they have done all season, the Lightning fought back and struck quickly in the second. Natalie Bordson hit Nora Stepan who found Mikayla Kelley in the slot and Kelley ripped the puck into the upper corner to make it 1-2 at 1:29. The Lightning struck again when Betsy Bjerke jumped on a loose puck at the Eastview blue line, went the length of the ice, and put a laser bar-down to tie it 2-2 at 14:59. Unfortunately, South capitalized on a power play and re-took the lead 3-2 just before the end of the period.

The Lightning controlled the action throughout the third, outshooting South 14-6, but a number of great saves by the South goalie kept the Lightning off the board.

The Lightning’s record is now 14-5-2. They are back in action on Tuesday, January 21, at AVSA against #14 Burnsville. It’s Teacher Appreciation Night! Come out to celebrate our seniors’ favorite teachers and cheer the Lightning to victory! JV plays at 5:00 and Varsity at 7:00. #ChallengeAccepted Go, Lightning!

ARTS & ACTIVITIES

(NEW) EASTVIEW DEBATE COMPETES AT STATE TOURNAMENT

Junior Layla Foster won the State Championship in Congressional Debate at the 2020 MSHSL State Debate Tournament.  Eastview also had two Public Forum Debate teams earn State Finalist honors.

Foster, who placed 5th last year, won the State Championship this year after twelve hours of intense debate at the tournament.  Foster is coached by Zach Prax.  Senior Captain Allison Macioch, who also competed at the tournament, was also instrumental in the team’s success.   

Congressional Debate is a relatively new event at the State Tournament.  Students simulate the legislative process and debate a wide variety of bills and resolutions proposed by participating schools.  Eastview has had a full-time Congressional Debate team for only two years.  Coach Prax is recognized for his excellent work in building such a strong team. 

In Public Forum Debate, Eastview was the only school to have two teams advance into the elimination rounds.  Of the 24 2-person teams that compete in the event, only the top eight advance into elimination rounds.  Seniors Pavan Guttipatti and Nikhil Kapur won their quarter-final matchup before falling on a very close 3-2 decision in the semi-finals to Edina.  Senior Anish Dulla and sophomore Isaiah Dalzell advanced to the quarter-finals and lost in that round on a 2-1 decision.  The varsity public forum teams are coached primarily by Todd Hering and Greta Thomas with assistance from Zach Prax, Ryan Henry, and Randy Bailey.
