SAMANTHA ZOPFI


PROVIDENCE ACADEMY  GIRLS' TRACK


From 1,000-point scorer on the girls' basketball team to a member of two state title-winning relay teams, Zopfi, a senior, has had a very successful high school sports career. After recovering from an ACL injury as a sophomore, Zopfi recovered in time to return to basketball just one season later. She also helped the girls' track team win its first-ever Class A state title by finishing second in the 100 and leading the 4x100 and 4x200 relay teams to wins as well.

TORY AHMANN


EDEN PRAIRIE  GIRLS' SYNCHRONIZED SWIMMING


It's not a sport that is well known, but Ahmann is an athlete who has given synchronized swimming some serious recognition in Minnesota. The senior and three-time state champion teamed up with Wayzata sophomore Sarah Urke at the 2009 Speedo Junior Synchronized Swimming Championships to finish 11th in the duet draw, competing for the Minnesota Synchronettes. Ahmann and Urke were the only two competitors from the state at the event.

HUDSON CARPENTER


STILLWATER  BOYS' GOLF


At the prestigious Tri-State Invitational golf tournament on April 18, Carpenter trailed leader Max Tylke of Eastview by two strokes with three holes remaining, even though the two had been tied after the first round with matching rounds of 70 on the par 71 course. But the junior put together a remarkable run to make up the late deficit. Carpenter birdied his final three holes to finish at even par, beating Tylke by one stroke.
