Farmers feeling ‘blessed’ despite wild weather
Seth Jovaag
Unifed Newspaper Group
After last year’s drought
pushed farmers to the brink,
record-setting rains in 2013
have posed a whole new set
of challenges.
But several Verona-area
farmers said last week that,
so far at least, crops are
weathering the storm.
“Speaking for myself, our
crops look fantastic,” said
Tom Duerst, who, with his
brother Mike, grows soy-
beans, corn and other crops
on roughly 625 acres near
the border of the towns of
Montrose and Verona. “In
our case, we were fortunate
early on (this summer), a lot
of the big rains just missed
“But you don’t have to go
very far away and there’s
some (crop) damage,” he
Capped off by heavy rains
at the end of June, the first
six months of 2013 were
the wettest on record in the
Madison area, with the city
recording nearly 31 inches
of rain from January through
June, nearly 15 inches above
normal, according to Madi- In 2012, the total
was just 11.39 inches.
That’s made farming tough
in Dane County and other
parts of the state. Crops in
low-lying fields can die out
if they sit in standing water
more than 24 hours, and dry
spells that last long enough
to allow farmers to bale hay
have been scarce, said Heidi
Johnson, crops and soil agent
with Dane County’s UW
Extension office.
Johnson said the southwest
portion of Dane County has
struggled with pooling water
farmers said
last week
that, so far
at least,
crops are

Plans for another hotel
on West Verona Avenue
moved ahead Monday
as the Common Council
approved a general devel-
opment plan for a 91-unit
Fairfield Inn and Suites.
The plan was well-
received by council mem-
bers, and there were no
objections by staff or Plan
Commission members to
the five exceptions sought
be developer Terrance Wall
and builder Lee Fischl, said
city planner Adam Sayre.
The property sits on the
corner of West Verona
Avenue, Nine Mound Road
and Half Mile Road. Its
shape poses a challenge for
development, Sayre said,
which is why some exemp-
tions were sought.
“This site is a challeng-
ing site since it’s bounded
by three roads,” Sayre said.
“The Plan Commission did
have a good discussion on
it … and recommended
approval on it. … In gener-
al, the exemptions are rela-
tively minor.”

Verona Area School District

Verona schools are in
line for a big boost in state
aid this year, which should
make local taxpayers hap-
State aid to the Verona
Area School District for
the 2013-14 school year is
set to rise $3.3 million – or
16 percent – according to
estimates released by the
state Department of Public
Instruction last week.
That spike – the largest
in Dane County and 12th
highest statewide – could
help reduce tax rates about
3 percent for local property
owners, district officials
Tax rates rose last year
but are projected to fall
from $12.78 to $12.39
per $1,000 of equalized
assessed value. That’s just
a hair higher than 2011 lev-
As a result, the owner of
a $250,000 home will pay
about $3,097.50 – or $97.50
less than last year – for the
school district’s portion of
their end-of-year property
tax bills, according to pre-
liminary budget figures.
The final budget won’t
be approved until Octo-
ber, however, and tax rates
could change between now
and then.
Verona’s boost in state
aid was no surprise. The
district added a 4-year-old

kindergarten program last
school year, and the subse-
quent spike in enrollment
meant more aid was coming.
State aid and local prop-
erty taxes make up the lion’s
share of the district’s bud-
get, which is projected to
increase 5 percent to $60.7
million next year.
Local officials put together
a preliminary budget in June
but provided revised figures
last week in light of the new
state aid estimates and after
Gov. Scott Walker signed
the 2013-15 state budget into
law June 30.
Earlier this spring, local
officials slammed Walker’s
proposal to freeze spending
limits for public school dis-
tricts. But Walker eventu-
ally increased spending lim-
its by $75 per pupil, which
amounts to about $375,000
more spending authority in
Verona. And he signed off
on a separate $75 per pupil
increase in categorical aid –
which includes special edu-
cation, transportation and
other programs – that should
also push taxes down.
Under the state’s funding
formula for schools, Vero-
na’s spending limits are also
set to rise after enrollment in
grades K-12 spiked by 112
students last year to 5,140,
explained business manager
Chris Murphy.
Also driving the 5 per-
cent budget hike was a deci-
sion earlier this spring by the
Verona Area school board to
spend roughly $1.8 million
next year on maintenance
projects, much of which are
expected to be paid back in
the form of lower utility bills
in years to come.
That spending hike was
partially offset by a 32 percent
drop in debt
p a y me n t s
next year, to
about $2.8
million, as
some former
loans have
been pai d
The di s-
t r i c t a l s o

it will have
to pay about
$ 4 3 , 0 0 0
more t han
a nt i c i pa t -
ed for employee’s pension
plans and that a 5.25 percent
increase in health premiums
will cost about $50,000 more
than an anticipated 4.75 per-
cent hike. Still, VASD’s
heal t h i nsur ance cost s
increased less than many area
districts that experienced dou-
ble-digit hikes, Murphy said.
The preliminary budget
carries some big unknowns.
It assumes the district will
add 57 students next year and
that the total value of taxable
property within the district
won’t increase. Those figures
won’t be known until the fall.
Overall, however, next
year’s budget continues a
recent trend of avoiding cuts
to staff or programs that were
commonplace a few years
Statewide, more than half
of Wisconsin’s 424 districts
are expected to receive less
state aid next year, though
total aid is up $46 million, or
1.1 percent, to $4.22 billion,
according to a July 1 news
release from the state Depart-
ment of Public Instruction.
Another $122 million in aid
will go to charter and vouch-
er programs in Racine and
in fields more than in other
parts of the county. Soggy
fields have also prevented
some farmers from driving
equipment in to spray for
Craig Rhiner, who farms
roughly 250 acres of soy-
beans and corn off Riverside
Road in the Town of Vero-
na, said he had to postpone
spraying his soybeans until
last Tuesday. As a result,
the weeds got “a little out of
control,” which could damp-
en yields in the fall. He also
lost much of his small, first
crop of hay.
But Rhiner, like oth-
ers, said his farm didn’t get
socked with the massive
rainfall totals that some near-
by communities like Brook-
lyn or Belleville saw last
month. And most of his corn
was hip- or chest-high by the
Fourth of July.
Wet weather has hit cen-
tral Wisconsin the hardest,
with many farmers unable to
plant cash crops in May or
even June. The U.S. Depart-
ment of Agriculture last
week designated 24 of the
state’s 72 counties as disaster
areas. Dane County wasn’t
on the list.
Dwindling hay supplies
have forced prices sky high,
too, making times tough for
farmers needing feed for
cattle. A baled ton of alfalfa
cost $275 in Wisconsin last
month, more than double
what it was a year earlier,
according to a report from
the National Agricultural
Statistics Service.
Patty Halverson said that,
fortunately, she and her
husband, Roger, had “just
enough hay” stored away
after last year’s drought to
feed their roughly 50 dairy
cattle on their farm near
Shady Oak Lane in the
Town of Verona. They also
squeaked in one cutting of
hay in June between rain-
storms and, if the weather
stays dry, could replenish
their supply this week.
“We know how blessed
we are,” Halverson said. “A
lot of our fellow farmers are
having a tough time.”
Kevin McCarthy, a Wau-
nakee resident who raises
crops on roughly 700 acres
of rented land around Vero-
na, also said his hay and corn
crops are “looking good,” all
things considered, and that
yields should be better than
last year.
Johnson said countywide
statistics about how many
acres of crops have been lost
are not yet compiled. Based
on her observations, she
thinks less than 5 percent of
crops in the eastern part of
Dane County will be lost,
but it could be worse in the
southwestern portions.
Meanwhile, following
last year’s drought and this
year’s rains, local farmers
are hoping for conditions to
normalize, though Rhiner’s
not holding his breath.
“I don’t even know what
normal is anymore,” he said.

An Eagle Scout project
located near walking trails
in an east side neighbor-
hood was vandalized July
Jackson Pundt’s infor-
mat i onal prai ri e si gns,
which contained a variety
of information, including a
map of local hiking trails,
plants and animals in the
prairie, were discovered
ripped from their posts on
Tuesday, only a day after
the installation of the six-
month project near his fam-
ily’s home on Glacier Edge
Pundt, a junior at Verona
Area High School, said he
built frames for the four
signs, so they received very
little damage. He plans to
rework the signs, aiming
to make them more vandal
proof. He hopes to have
them back up before school
starts in the fall.
Pundt’s father, Jon, was
the project manager for
another scout’s Eagle proj-
ect about a year ago that
was also vandalized. They
had created benches to go in
a rest area in the prairie but
the benches were so heavily
damaged that they had to be
completely rebuilt.
The project was Pundt’s
final task in earning his
Eagle Scout award. The
idea stemmed from wanting
to improve the prairie loop.
“I know people often
want to know how to get
to various trails, and that’s
where the map came from,”
he said. “I made the others
because I thought it would
make the trail look nicer.”
In order to attain the rank
of Eagle Scout, the highest
rank in scouting, a mem-
ber must plan, organize
and lead a service project
to benefit the community.
Pundt planned and orga-
nized the project, which
was approved by the city in
February, from inception to
completion, estimating that
it “required about 70 man
hours of work.”
He was not the only one
with investments into the
project. Pundt employed the
help of several friends and
other scouts in the build-
ing and installation, with
his parents and the City of
Verona donating supplies,
whi l e Par k
Printing printed and donat-
ed the signs.

What: Boys and Girls Club
bike ride fundraiser
When: Saturday, July 20
Where: Departs from
Edgewood College, some routes
travel through Verona and
drive – the pantry’s largest annual
source of donations – in Novem-
ber, said Yurs, pastor at Salem
United Church of Christ.
“We would love to be in place
by late fall,” Yurs said. “I don’t
know if we’re going to be able
make that or not.”
Last fall, VANN kicked off a fun-
draising campaign for the project,
which would more than double the
space of the current pantry and add
office space, a waiting room and
better refrigeration and restroom
Initially, the group estimated it
would need to raise $400,000 to
get the job done. But after receiving
favorable bids earlier this year, the
pricetag is “just under $300,000,”
Yurs said. Madison-based J.F. Fin-
dorff was picked as the general con-
So far, the group has received
about $50,000 in cash donations and
another $50,000 in shelving sup-
plies and other “in-kind” donations,
Yurs said. The group intends to take
out a loan to pay for the work while
continuing fundraising, he said.
The food pantry opened in 1986
and served about 75 families in its
first year. Now it serves up to 700
families a month who hail from
within the Verona Area School
District boundaries. From 2005 to
2011 alone, the number of individ-
ual visits to the pantry rose 80 per-
cent, from 5,000 a year to 9,000.
The pantry is housed in a
1,500-square-foot spot in the Sugar
River UMC basement that is drab,
lacks restrooms and needs more
space for storing and refrigerating
food, organizers said last fall in a
letter seeking donations.
The new space would be on the
west side
of the St.
Vi ncent
t h r i f t
store that
o p e n e d
i n Sep-
tember 2011. Rent would be free
under a five-year lease agreement
with St. Vincent’s, and VANN
would remain a separate entity.
The new spot could evolve into a
headquarters for a variety of social
programs, organizers have said,
perhaps by offering free immuni-
zation clinics or office space for a
staffer from Dane County’s Joining
Forces for Families initiative that
aims to help families in need.
Yurs took over as chair of
VANN last month after for-
mer chair Jake Closson resigned
because he and his family are mov-
ing out of state, Yurs said. Planning
for new fundraisers should crystal-
lize when a new fundraising chair
is selected in the coming weeks.
Another goal among VANN
leaders is to strengthen connections
to Fitchburg, Yurs said. The major-
ity of food pantry users are from
Fitchburg, but no one from that city
is on the seven-member board of

Rules of reciprocity are universal. Every society has both implicit
and explicit rules about giving back to those who have given to
us. We don’t usually notice these rules until we encounter dif-
ferent rules from other cultures, or when someone violates the
rules. The duty to reciprocate explains why we feel uncomfortable
at Christmas if someone has given us a gift and we don’t have
one for them. We’re likely to go out and buy something for them
in this case. Rules of reciprocity apply also to justice in punish-
ment, and the lex talionis or “eye for an eye” rule was probably
instituted as an attempt to limit our murderous impulses for
revenge. We shouldn’t always demand justice; sometimes mercy
is the more loving response. We also shouldn’t expect reciproc-
ity in giving in many cases as well. Parents give to their young
children knowing that their children don’t have the wherewithal to
reciprocate and sometimes we give anonymously knowing that
the other person would feel uncomfortably indebted if they knew
who gave to them. So, we should give generously, especially to
those in need, keeping in mind how our gift is likely to make the
other person feel.
“Do to others as you would have them do to you.”

210 S. Main Street, Verona
Occupation: Early Childhood
special education assistant,
VASD, 1987-2004; pastoral
associate and adult faith coor-
dinator, St. Christopher Parish,
Verona and Paoli, 2004-2010.
Family: husband, Bill; three
sons, Pat, Bob, and Dan;
daughters-in-law Amber and
Rese; grandchildren, Madeline
and Gabriel.
Address: 403 Melody Lane
How long have you lived
in the area? Born on family
dairy farm on Seminole Hwy,
Fitchburg. Moved to Verona on
our wedding day, July 1, 1972.
What organizations are
you/have you been involved
in? During the years my
children were growing up, I
served on the Country View
Elementary School council,
VAHS parent advisory council,
as a catechist at St. Andrew
Church and with the Maple
Grove Lads and Lassies 4-H
Club as a project and organiza-
tional leader. For several years
I was a representative for our
parish with the Joining Forces
for Families organization.
My present focus has been
in volunteering at my par-
ish in pastoral care. When I
retired from the staff at St.
Christopher Parish, I wanted
to continue to be active in
providing spiritual care for our
parishioners who are home-
bound, in assisted living facili-
ties, nursing homes, at Badger
Prairie Health Care Facility, in
the hospital or under hospice
care. I take communion to
and visit and pray with our
parishioners who are not able
to be physically present with
our faith community due to ill-
ness or other incapacity. Grief
ministry is another area I have
become involved in at our par-
ish. We offer a grief support
series at our parish each year
and other support for those
who have lost loved ones. I am
also a certified spiritual direc-
tor and offer spiritual guidance
in my home office.
How else are you active in
the community?
For the last several years
I have been on the Board of
Directors of the Fitchburg
Historical Society and am cur-
rently president.
What do you like best about
your community?
The schools have been fan-
tastic. Our sons received an
excellent foundational educa-
tion in the Verona Area School
District that enabled them to
pursue advanced education
and find careers in teaching,
engineering, and researching
that have fulfilled their pas-
sions and contributed to their
own communities.
How do you help make a
difference in your commu-
We all have an obligation to
give back to our community
from the many gifts we have
received, whether those are
skills and talents, financial suc-
cess, creativity, or an ability to
envision how things could be
better. Each of us has unique
abilities to be used for the
common good. I love people
and have been given the abil-
ity to be with them in times of
sorrow, loss, pain, suffering,
or questioning. It is an enor-
mous privilege to sit with oth-
ers, listen to their stories and
uncover how God is present in
their lives.
What personal satisfaction
do you get from serving?
It is always a joy to let people
know that they are not alone. I
also enjoy working with oth-
ers on teams and committees,
consulting and coming up with
greater vision and wisdom
than I would have on my own.
But most importantly, being
with others as they are strug-
gling or being challenged in
life shows me the strength and
endurance of the human spirit
and continues to deepen and
broaden my own spiritual life.
If money were no object,
what would you “gift” your
I would invest in our chil-
dren with the best teachers
and resources available for our
public schools so that all chil-
dren regardless of background
would have access to the best
education possible.
What are your hobbies,
Reading, especially books
on historical figures and theol-
ogy/spirituality. Bicycle riding,
walking, and traveling to dis-
tant and foreign lands.
Occupation: I have been a
science teacher for 19 years
and have been at VAHS for
the past 13. I am the head
coach of the girls’ cross coun-
try team and an assistant
girls’ track coach at VAHS. I
have a bachelor’s degree from
UW-Madison and a master’s
degree in sports management
from the United States Sports
Family: wife Kelly, son, Ben,
16, and daughter, Rachel, 13
Where do you live: Verona
(Glacier Edge Area)
How long have you lived in
the area? 13 years
What organizations have
you been involved in?
I’m a member of the
WCCCA (Wisc. Cross Country
Assoc.), WISTCA (Wisc. Track
Coaches Assoc.) and The St.
Christopher Parish Council.
How else are you active in
the community?
At some point during the
year, I work with children
through grades K-12. Besides
teaching and coaching at
VAHS, I am the director of
Camp Invention, a weeklong
summer enrichment program
for kids who have completed
grades K-5. I am a facilitator
for the Camp Badger Exploring
Engineering Program, a week-
long resident camp at the
UW-Madison and UW-River
Falls for students entering 8th
grade. I am the coordinator
for of the VAHS Girls Track
Camp, and a coordinator for
the Twilight Cross Country
Clinic held during the summer
in Verona.
What do you like best
about your community?
Verona is a very vibrant
community filled with many
intellectually and athletically
talented people. I especially
enjoy the access to the wide
array of state-wide sporting
events that take place in our
city that range from triathlons
to soccer and baseball tourna-
ments to the mud run.
How do you help make a
difference in your commu-
I feel like I get to know
a large number of the kids
in our community. It is really
fun to see kids around town
and be able to recognize many
of them through one of the
programs that serve youth of
which I am a part.
What personal satisfaction
do you get from serving?
The kids in our community
are our future. Giving kids a
positive experience that can
build their confidence either
through academics or athletics
is very fulfilling.

I have shared with many

What are your hobbies and
I enjoy running and occa-
sionally competing in road
races. I always tell my cross
country runners that I don’t
have to get faster in order to
start winning races, I just need
to get older so that I can win
my age group. One of my hob-
bies is investing in the stock
market. I enjoy tossing around
investing ideas with friends and
teaching colleagues. I believe
that kids should take an inter-
est in the market at a young
age to lay the groundwork for
a solid financial future.
Occupation: My family and
I moved to Verona in the sum-
mer of 1982 and established
Reinen Chiropractic Office. Our
first location was a home office
combination where Culvers
parking lot is now. Verona
has been good to us the past
31 years and I am proud of
the fact we have helped over
10,000 patients.
Family: My wife Karen and
I have been married for 42
years. We have 3 children.
Shawna owns Sojo Blau Salon
in downtown Verona and she
and her husband, Todd have
3 children. My oldest son,
Jason, is a registered nurse
and he loves living in Seattle,
Wash. Trevor was adopted
from Paraguay at the age of
two. He works at Badger Ridge
Middle School and McDonalds.
It seems like everybody knows
Trevor wherever we go.
What organizations have
you been involved with?
At one time I was more
involved in community activi-
ties than I am now. I’ve held
office in the Verona Optimists
Club, Verona Chamber of
Commerce, Police and Fire
Commission and also served
on the Board of Directors of
the Bank of Verona for ten
years. One of the most chal-
lenging and satisfying things
was organizing the Hometown
Days parade. My son, Trevor,
has special needs and so
eventually I curtailed a lot of
those commitments in order
to spend more time with him.
How else are you active in
the community?
Presently I would like
to become more involved
with the Verona Area Needs
Network. We recently opened
our chiropractic office on a
Saturday morning and donated
100% of the service rendered
to the VANN. We will do this
again more times yet this year.
It’s not much, but my son,
Trevor, and I recently started
picking up the trash along Nine
Mound Rd. where the traffic
has become so heavy.
What do you like best about
your community?
For a small town I believe
Verona is the total package
when it comes to living the
“Good Life”. We have an excel-
lent school system, senior
center and library. There are
recreational opportunities for
people of all ages. Ron Rieder
and his crew really keep our
community clean and attrac-
tive. The amenities of larger
cities are nearby and pastoral
settings are at our doorstep.
How do you help make a
difference in the community?
By virtue of my occupation
I like to think I help people
live healthier lives and l try to
personally set a good example
in that regard. I like to pro-
mote Verona and recommend
its businesses and neighbor-
hoods to outsiders. My family
and l participate in many of
the local functions such as the
upcoming National Night Out
Against Crime which is spon-
sored by the Police Department
and local businesses.
What personal satisfaction
do you get from serving?
By nature I’m a people per-
son and l derive great satisfac-
tion from getting to know and
helping people. Perhaps part
of the success of our chiro-
practic practice has been that
my staff and I take a special
interest in our patients and go
the extra mile to help them in
many ways. I fully believe God
provides and He Often does
that through the time and tal-
ents shared by others.
If money were no object,
what would you “gift” your
I would purchase a stand
alone building to house the
Verona Area Needs Network.
It would have offices, adequate
storage for food and clothing
and a large room for fellowship
and education. Also, a sum of
money would be set aside the
interest of which would sus-
tain the cost of operations for
many years to come. All dona-
tions would go 100% towards
supplying people’s needs.
What are your hobbies and
I exercise a lot, mostly run-
ning. I’ve run a half marathon
in 28 states and hope to have
all 50 in the next 4-5 years.
Probably should have started
the conquest a long time ago.
Classic cars and sports cars
interest me a great deal and I
have several that Trevor and I
take to car shows throughout
south central Wisconsin.

A baserunning mistake
and a mental error on a
potential out at home plate
quelled a comeback attempt
f or t he Ver ona Seni or
Legion squad Monday in
an 8-3 loss to Middleton at
Stampfl Field.
Verona trailed by five in
the bottom of the fourth but
put the tying runs on the
corners with one out.
However, on a st ol en
base attempt, the runner at
third was caught in a run-
down and put out at third
I n t he next i nni ng,
Middleton put runners on
second and third when a
grounder came t o t hi rd
base. The runner goi ng
home looked to be an easy
out, but the throw went to
first instead as Middleton
scored and added two more
runs in the inning.
“It is a learning process,”
head coach Fred Volker
said. “A lot of these guys
don’t have a lot of var-
sity experience. ... We are
preaching that we have
t o come ready t o pl ay
and ever night and do the
little things right. When
we don’t, we suffer, and
tonight, I think we had a
lack of energy.”
The Hitmen came to the
plate in the fourth down
5-0, but the bats lit up.
Catcher Ben Rortvedt tri-
pled and scored on an RBI
single to left field by John
Moynihan. Jake Armstrong
then singled and stole sec-
ond, and Ryan Pynnonen
followed with a 2-run dou-
ble to left-center to make it
After Pynnonen reached
third on a passed ball, Con-
nor Volker walked and took
off for second base. While
Volker easily took second,
Pynnonen was caught off
guard and found himself in
a rundown.
Verona failed to score
another run in the game,
and Middleton came back
with three runs in the fifth
“We just fell asleep, ”
Fred Vol ker sai d. “We
made a mistake, and they
took advantage of it. ... I
think Pynnonen was being
a little overly aggressive
after we scored three runs
and had a little extra ener-
Middleton, which scored
four runs in the second and
added another in the fourth,
is also ahead of Verona
(6-4) in the playoff race.
That makes this loss a
setback for a summer post-
season, but Volker said the
teams still has life with
three conference games
“We have a shot, and that
is the goal,” Volker said.
“It is a group that just has
to learn that it is OK to
Pynnonen took the loss.
He went four innings and
allowed four earned runs
on six hits, He struck out
three and walked three.
One of the high points
was t he pl ay of Ror t -
vedt, who finished 2-for-3
with two triples and a run
“The kid can play and
that is all I can say about
him,” Volker said. “He has
a bright future. He is only
going to be a sophomore,
but he is going to have to
take on a leadership role
based on his skill set.
“That is tough to do for a
younger player, but I think
he has the mentality to do

Sun Prairie 6, Verona 4
The Hitmen held a 4-2 on
July 2 against Sun Prairie,
but the Cardinals were able
to string some hits together
and come back for the 6-4
Pynnonen had seven
strikeouts through 6 1/3
innings before walking two
of four total batters in the
seventh, forcing Volker to
bring in Toby Whitehead
for relief.
That is when Sun Prai-
rie collected four hits and
reached base on two walks
to take the lead for good.
Verona grabbed a 4-0
lead in the bottom of the
sixth, including an RBI
double by Rortvedt and an
RBI single by Moynihan.
Whitehead took the loss,
allowing four earned runs
on four hits. He struck out
a batter.
Pynnonen allowed two
earned runs on a hit.
Verona 6, Memorial 5
Verona came back last
Friday to win 6-5 at Madi-
son Memorial.
Pynnonen picked up two
RBIs, and Jake Toman add-
ed another.
Toman also earned the
win, allowing three earned

struck out five.

Cavs pound Argyle in rematch
Jeremy Jones
Sports editor
Justin Scanlon drove in
five runs and Ben Wallace
scattered eighth hits over
seven innings as the Verona
Cavaliers rallied from a two-
run deficit to avenge a 2-1
loss at Argyle nine days ear-
Scanlon was one of four
starters gone when the Cava-
liers saw their year-long win
streak come to an end June
28, but the shortstop more
than did his part to help
Verona start a new winning
streak with the 13-6 victory
last week.
“No one on this team
likes to lose,” said Scan-
lon, who finished 4-for-5
at the plate with a pair of
doubles. “I think everyone
was pretty upset last Friday.
It’s baseball, you run into
one of those games, but we
regrouped and we’ll start a
new streak now.”
Derek Burgenske’s two-
run home run in the bottom
of the fourth gave Verona
its first lead since back-to-
back RBIs by Scanlon on a
hit-and-run and a sacrifice
fly by Matt Peetz in the first
inning. The Cavaliers lead
was short-lived, though, as
an RBI single by Justin Crot-
ty knotted the score at 6-all
in the fifth.
“Derek’s home run really
gave us a lift,” manager Dale
Burgenske said. “We were
really depressed that last time
we played them because we
had so many guys missing
and it’s very seldom we only
score one run.”
Verona finally took the
lead for good on back-to-
back walks to Danny Koss
and Kyle Jenkins and a
single to shallow center by
Klayton Brandt loaded the
bases in the bottom of the
fifth before Derek Burgenske
was hit by a pitch to plate the
go-ahead run.
Lucas Yapp and Koss
knocked two runs in the sixth
with back-to-back sac flies.
Zach Spencer’s one out
double in the seventh was
followed by an RBI single
from Scanlon and Peetz.
Scanlon doubled in two
runs off the center field fence
following lead-off walks to
Brandt and David Lund in
the bottom of the eighth.
Klayton Brandt went
2-for-3 as the team’s No. 8
hitter. Six different hitters
drove in a run for the Cava-
“Our lineup is so tough
from top to bottom,” Scan-
lon said. “It’s tough to stop
all the hitters in our lineup as
you can see with 13 runs in
eighth innings.”
Verona scored in every
inning, but the second where
Ben Wallace quickly found
himself in trouble, walking
two of the first three bat-
ters he saw before desig-
nated hitter Bryan Ritschard
hit an RBI single to center.
Drew Nafzger followed one
out later, driving a two-out
single past short. A hit-and-
run base knock over second
by Dylan Schwitz pushed
the Beavers ahead before an
error extended Argyle’s lead
to 4-2.
“There’s no panic on this
team,” Scanlon said. “Every-
one has confidence in Ben,
no matter what the situation.
There’s no one I’d rather
have on the mound for us.”
