Roseville/Bulletin People: July 2, 2017


RAHS Class of 2017 graduates Sam Hamerski and Maia Peterson, coached by Bret Hemmerlin, competed in Duo Interpretation and earned third place after 13 rounds and four days of competition. They performed their final round at the Birmingham-Jefferson Convention Center to a crowd of more than 4,000 people. The NSDA Nationals was their second national finalist finish this year, the first being the National Individual Events Tournament of Champions in May where they earned fourth place. Sophomore Vakare Bartkaitis, coached by Jessica Fedje, advanced to the quarterfinals (top 30, eight rounds) in Humorous Interpretation, her qualifying event. After not advancing to the semifinals, she competed in Storytelling, a consolation event, and performed an additional six rounds before earning fourth place out of more than 300 contestants. She, like Sam and Maia, is a national finalist. Sophomore Jason Sobieck, coached by Hemmerlin, advanced to the octofinals (top 60, six rounds) in Dramatic Interpretation, his qualifying event. Dramatic Interpretation had nearly 300 entries in it this year.

June marks the summer solstice and the Alzheimer’s Association’s The Longest Day. On June 21, teams were created across the country to do an activity they love — or an activity loved by someone affected by Alzheimer’s — to help end Alzheimer’s. The Mudcats, a rookie Roseville youth baseball team, stepped up to the plate to join the cause. Several players on the team have family members who have been affected by Alzheimer’s, including 6-year-old twins, whose grandfather has the disease. On The Longest Day, they chose to cheer on the Minnesota Twins and create memories they hope to never forget. The Mudcats have raised $110, which funds the care, support and research efforts of the Alzheimer’s Association. June was Alzheimer’s & Brain Awareness Month. Support Team Mudcats at www.act.alz.org/goto/mudcats and get information and resources from the Alzheimer’s Association at www.alz.org or by calling 800-272-3900.
