ATHLETICS (6/7/2018)



Here are the latest updates: 

Girls Lacrosse: On Tuesday evening the Girls Lax team had the unenviable task of taking on the undefeated, #1 team in the State from Prior Lake in the Section Semis.  A year ago the Lightning season ended with a 19-1 loss to this same Laker team and earlier this year were defeated 15-4.  Our EV team has had a great season and shown great improvement, but this was a tall task.  When the Lightning fell behind 6-0 in the first half many felt it would be a similar result, but this team showed incredible heart and had the Lakers on their heels when they cut the lead to 13-10 in the second half before eventually falling 16-11.  It was a great example of being able to walk away satisfied knowing you had given it your absolute best possible effort.


Boys Tennis: The Boys Tennis team wrapped up the team portion of the State Tournament with another thrilling match.  Unfortunately the team came up on the short end of another 4-3 score, this time to Orono and finished 6th as a team.  The team had an extremely successful year finishing as the SSC Champion, the Section 3AA Champion and 6th place at the State Tournament.  The Individual portion of the State Tourney starts tomorrow morning at 8:00 and the Lightning will be represented in Singles by Gavin Young and in Doubles by the team of Nisal Liyanage and Sourabh Terakanambi.  The first two rounds are tomorrow and the final rounds are on Friday at Baseline Tennis Center.


Baseball: The Eastview Baseball team is certainly learning how to win low scoring, one run ballgames lately, but it doesn’t make it easy on coaches, fans, parents or athletic directors! J  By virtue of their undefeated record in the Section Tournament the Lightning were in the driver’s seat as Apple Valley would need to beat them twice to advance to state.  After jumping out to a three run lead behind extra base hits from Owen Dauk and Logan Tollefson and with an incredible performance by Ryan Fering on the mound it seemed like this one was going to be filled with a little less drama than the previous two games, but no such luck.  Apple Valley rallied in the 7th to score two runs and cut the lead to 3-2.  They ended up with the bases loaded with two outs before Nic Nelson came in and got a strikeout to end the game!  With the win the Lightning advance to the State Tournament to be played next Thursday-Friday-Saturday.  The Class AAAA Quarterfinals are all played Thursday at CHS Field in St. Paul.  The game time and opponent will be determined at the tournament seeding meeting this weekend.  Tickets will be available at CHS and are $9 adults and $6 students.  Here is a link to the state tournament bracket for those interested (no teams filled in yet)




The day after Eastview's first ever state win as a team against Brainerd, the boys tennis team was back on court for their consolation final against Orono. Orono got out to a 3-0 lead taking wins at 2,3 and 4 singles. But the Lightning got wins from Gavin Young at 1 singles and Nisal Liyanage/Karin Young at 1 doubles. The three would finish undefeated in state team play. The Lightning also got a win from Davis Carlson/Sourabh Terakanambi to tie the match at 3-3. The match would come down to No. 3 doubles, where the Lightning would ultimately lose 10-5 in a tiebreaker. The Lightning finished post season play with a record of 4-2, and an overall record of 14-11. Eastview will lose seniors Pranav Nair and Jacob Porras, but look to be an even bigger threat next year. The Individual State Tournament will be played on Thursday and Friday, with Gavin Young competing in singles, and Nisal Liyanage and Sourabh Terakanmbi competing in doubles.
