The Royals may be playing catch-up with Mother Nature, but they're holding their own against Suburban East Conference competition. Woodbury improved to 4-1 in SEC following wins last week over Hastings and White Bear Lake. The Royals' lone conference loss came Thursday, May 2, against unbeaten SEC leader Mounds View. "I'm happy with where we are right now," said Woodbury tennis coach Michael Moran. Woodbury started off the week on April 29 with a 6-1 home win over Hastings. Once again, the Royals' singles players dominated each of their games. No.
Talk about a rebound performance. One week removed from a double-header where Woodbury gave up a combined 27 runs, the Royals bounced back and built a 5-3 record behind big wins over Roseville and Mounds View. Woodbury began the week on April 29 with a double-header - the second of many the Royals will play this spring, due to a long stretch of inclement weather that barred play - at home against Mounds View. Woodbury won the first game 8-5 behind a strong outing from junior pitcher Caitlin Balsimo, who allowed five on the way to her second win of the season.
Woodbury junior pitcher Ben Meyer walked a tight rope on the mound at times Thursday against Tartan at Midway Stadium in St. Paul, but Meyer battled back from jams to help lead the Royals to a 6-3 victory. Meyer allowed nine hits, struck out five and walked one in a complete-game effort and worked out of a third inning jam to prevent the Titans from taking the lead. Woodbury led 1-0 heading into the bottom of the third inning when Tartan loaded the bases after three consecutive hitters reached base with one out.
East Ridge senior pitcher Chris Richardson threw six innings of three-hit ball Thursday in a 4-1 victory over White Bear Lake in White Bear Lake. Richardson's only blemish came in the first inning when he gave up one run that gave the Bears a quick 1-0 lead, but it was smooth sailing after that.
There is something special about being first. That is what drew Hans Horning to apply for the East Ridge wrestling coaching position four years ago. Starting a program from scratch, setting the traditions, initiating the work ethic, getting a youth program going, dedicating the enormous amount of time to get it all off the ground, Horning said. "All of those things interested me," Horning said.
In the Minnesota Sting's first game of the 2013 season, offensive coordinator Bryan Wrich didn't know what to expect from the team's opponent - the Carlton County Stampede, an expansion team from the Duluth-Superior area.

We're nearing the end of the 2013 legislative session in St. Paul, but we still face some tough decisions on spending over the next month. I would like to provide you with a general overview from the Legislature as well as some specific issues I have been working on for you this year. I am first and foremost concerned that proposals this year to raise taxes and fees by nearly $3 billion, coupled with the bonding proposals that increase our debt, create a deadly combination that will jeopardize our economic progress.
