    PAULSEN asked and was given permission to address the House for 1 minute and to revise and extend his remarks.) Mr. PAULSEN. Mr. Speaker, I rise to congratulate the Eden Prairie Boys Nordic Ski Team for becoming State champions this year. For the first time in nearly 30 years, the Eagles' boys team claimed the State Nordic ski championship title after an excellent performance in the Nordic competition at Giants Ridge earlier this month. The team had an outstanding season and proved their ability and determination in the finals.

    Seniors Tom Bye and Ryan Stewart both finished in the top 10, and Henry Zurn and Jay Grootwassink also attained all-State honors. Also deserving of praise, Mr. Speaker, are the coaches, including Coach Doug Boonstra, also known as ``Boonie,'' whose leadership and unwavering support helped motivate these student athletes.

    Congratulations to the students, their parents, the coaching staff, and to everybody who helped contribute to the success of the Eagles team.
