SENTINEL TRIBUNE Wednesday, June 15, 2016 Page 9 II [ Fiw Falcons makeAll Conference Team By Carter Ross,. coach Abby Herding won her 3rd consecutive section 3A golf title last week at the Worthington CC. Joining her at this year's state golf meet will be Kyle Kuehl. Both Abby and Kyle placed in the top five individuals after the top teams advanced. This will be Abby's 5th trip to the state tournament and will be looking for a high fmish. She has placed in the top 10 the last 3 years including a 3rd place fm'lsh last year and a runner-up two years ago. Kyle played very well to be the first boy in some time to eam a trip to the state tourna- ment. Both players lead the WWG golf teams to finish runner-up in the sections. They played very well in the 2 day section meet. Their best team scores came during the event. The boys were a little disappointed they let the runner-up trophy slip away at conference and made sure they closed out as the section runner-ups. The girls added a section trophy to the tro- phy case for the first time in program history. They also end the year the 2x defending Red Rock Conference cham- pions. The girls also fmished the year with the best record and most wins in school his- tory (39-3). Furthermore, they shot a school record 183. The boys end the year at 40-10 and keep getting better each time they play. It was a great season for the WWG golf teams. Abby and Kyle participated in the Class 3A State meet on June 14 and 15 at the Becker golf course in Becker, MN.

From 2008 to 2013, the state's Animal Humane Society was called in to investigate conditions of an average of 1,400 horses per year, a 400 percent increase over previous years.

"There have been concerted efforts to respond on many fronts and we're seeing the numbers decrease. Minnesota's equine community is working hard to keep that trend going," says Krishona Martinson, University of Minnesota Extension equine specialist. In addition to the recovering economy, Martinson cited several factors contributing to the improved status of Minnesota horses: * Greater public education through Extension: In addi- tion to educational events, online materials have been widely shared and social media campaigns continue rais- ing awareness. * Emergency help: The Minnesota Hay Bank has raised more than $76,000 and fed more than 600 at-risk horses. * Population control: 122 stallions were castrated at free clinics hosted by the Minnesota Horse Welfare Coalition, which also gave University veterinary students valuable experience with the procedure. * Feeder studies: Extension research found that when a feeder isn't used, up to 57 percent of hay is wasted, a find- ing that's prompted greater innovation in feeder design and feeder use by owners. Extension was awarded a $77,000 grant from the Morris Animal Foundation in 2011 to study horse neglect and develop prevention plans. In addition to its education and outreach, Extension hosted a major horse welfare summit in 2014. When horses are mistreated, emaciated or ill, the costs for their veterinary care, lodging and other needs can run as high as $20,000 per horse. These costs are typically absorbed by the nonprofit sector. Martinson cautioned that to avoid backsliding, a solid understanding about what horse ownership entails is essential. Basic nutrition and health costs for a healthy adult horse costs a minimum of $2,000 a year. "Horses can easily live 25 or 30 years--and they usual- ly get more expensive as they age," she says. "It's tempt- ing to buy a horse, especially at a low cost or when it's presented as an opportunity to rescue the animal. But like any other investment, horse ownership requires calculat- ing the true cost and length of commitment." Her sentiments were echoed by Nancy Turner, presi- dent of This Old Horse, a nonprofit sanctuary for horses in Dakota County, and an advocate for responsible horse ownership. "Education and outreach have made a big difference for many horses in Minnesota," she says. "We need to keep that awareness high." The Extension horse program's online resources (http:// features fact- sheets, webinars, podcasts and a monthly newsletter for horse owners and those considering ownership. It also features mobile phone apps that calculate cost of hay and estimate horse bodyweight.

The fairways are gorgeous and the roughs are exactly as they should be making it a challenge to score if you spend too much of your time in the long grass. Hats off to Dwayne and crew for keeping things in such good shape. The couples tournament was held last Saturday with Gall Smith and son Jordan winning the first flight and Dwayne and Denise Eichner winning the second. The two-person best ball sched- uled for last Sunday was cancelled due to a lack of teams. Both the men and women are entering their second month of play with a few matches to be made up.

The five-lady league is still incomplete. Upcoming events include the Heritage Health Care 9 hole four-person scramble on Friday June 24. This is an event that often fea- tures many people who don't golf often, but want to be included in an enjoy- able fund-raiser for Sanford Westbrook and its wonder- ful facility. The day fea- tures a noon meal along with nine holes of golf. If you are unable to play in the afternoon, arrangements can be made to play in the morning before the meal. Contact the clubhouse or any Foundation board member for more informa- tion. The Couples league has begun with matches played on Monday evenings. Quote of the week: "The PGA tour isn't pres- sure.
