Ely Wheel Park event set for May 20

The Ely Wheel Park project is moving forward. Ely students have created the design with help from a professional, and their fundraising efforts are steadily building toward “breaking ground.” The original plans for the Ely Recreation Center included a skate park to replace the previous Lincoln Park facility. Students have worked to raise money for it since 2014. The design features a “pump track,” which is the most versatile type of skate/BMX bike obstacle course. It’s a series of linked rollers and steeply bermed corners that offer fun and fitness for young and old on skateboards, scooters, inline skates, and bikes. The Ely Wheel Park has the potential to be the first poured concrete pump track in the United States.

Pitching key to Ely’s success

by Tom Coombe
Pitching is part of the core of success for any baseball team, and the Ely Timberwolves rode the efforts of a dominant senior pitcher last spring all the way to the state tournament.
This spring, pitching takes on an even larger focus, both for the Timberwolves and in high school baseball as a whole.
New rules, governing the number of pitches that pitchers may throw, cast an imposing shadow over a 2017 season that started Friday, when the Wolves hosted Two Harbors in one of the earliest-ever season-openers at Veterans Memorial Field.
Ely has won three of the last five Section 7A titles, including in 2016 when Patrick Huisman picked up three pitching wins and two saves during the Wolves’ section tournament run.
But Huisman has graduated, and the new rules make it impossible for anyone to step in and even attempt to match that performance this spring.
