10 years ago this week….


This is a look back at some of the people and teams making news in the St. Croix Valley 10 years ago, as reported in the Stillwater Gazette.


Girls golf — Whitney Windmiller earns medalist honors after shooting an even-par 37 in Stillwater’s runner-up finish in a Suburban East Conference meet at White Bear Yacht Club.


Baseball — Joe Zauner delivers an RBI single in the bottom of the seventh inning to provide the game-winner in Stillwater’s 2-1 victory over Woodbury. Ryan Larson improves to 6-0 on the season with a complete game six-hitter.


Softball — Kari Boughten’s one-hitter propels the Ponies to a 2-1 softball victory over Hastings and a solo second-place finish in the Suburban East Conference standings with a 10-4 record (15-5 overall). Stillwater is able to overcome the loss of starting shortstop Tara Hayner after breaking the ring finger on her glove hand during a physical education class.


SAHS — Colleen Rooney (female robin division), Dustin Dahlblom (157-pound), Alex Cadwell (220) and Tom Nickerson (super heavyweight) capture individual titles at the 26th Annual Pony Power Lift competition at Stillwater Area High School. Cadwell’s winning total of 610 pounds is the highest in any division.
