    PAULSEN asked and was given permission to address the House for 1 minute and to revise and extend his remarks.) Mr. PAULSEN. Madam Speaker, I want to congratulate the Minnetonka High School girls hockey team who recently won the Minnesota State High School Hockey Tournament, the first girls hockey team to win three consecutive State championships.



    The path to achieving greatness is never uncontested, as the girls found out. The night before the championship, Madam Speaker, the Minnetonka girls played Lakeville North in a 4-hour, 17-minute marathon semifinal game that finally ended in a Minnetonka win after a goal from Amy Peterson in the sixth overtime period.

    The hard work of this impressive team exemplifies what it means to be great student athletes who excel both on the ice and in the classroom. All the players and their coaches deserve great praise for their determination this season. It's an honor to represent, and recognize, such all-star athletes.

    Congratulations, and go Skippers.
