Triplets Header
The kids are all athletes and have been in sports since they were four years old. Sandy has had to be a traffic controller just figuring out how to get three kids to three different places with two cars. Now that the kids can drive, it makes life a lot easier. Since we are out in Montevideo, we don't see them that often and it is easier to forget how much older they've gotten. Lyle was leaving for home one morning and Taylor came out, said goodbye to him, tossed her hockey stuff in the back of the Jeep, and hopped in the driver's seat and drove off. It was a momentary shock for him.

Justin has been active in hockey and baseball. Allie has been in lacrosse, volleyball, table tennis, and tennis. Taylor has been in hockey and is co-captain of the Eagan hockey team this year. She also is in table tennis, tennis and softball. Eagan has a strict scholastic code and students have 3-4 hours of homework a night. If you have a game the night before and hockey practice at 5 AM, it makes for a short night.

Tennis Awards
Allie and Taylor were encouraged to try out for tennis by the tennis coach in the summer of 2016. He said they needed more players and since the girls had gone to state in table tennis and Allie had volleyball, he thought they would fit in. Turned out they did. After learning to play in August, they made the team and Eagan went on to the state championship where they took second place, their first loss of the tournament.

These are the awards given out at the tennis banquet. Both girls got the Minnesota Academic All State Award and Taylor got conference honorable mention, which is very good since the South Suburban League is a very strong league. Allie unanimously got the Most Improved Player award and, as he presented the award to her, the coach said that had she started a couple of years earlier, she could have been one of the best players in the state.
