Goltz Pitches Six Shutout Innings
Brandon Goltz pitched six shutout innings for the Fargo-Moorhead RedHawks on Wednesday night and the home team went on to record a 4-0 victory over the Gary SouthShore RailCats at Newman Outdoor Field in Fargo.  The game was scoreless when Goltz was taken out so he did not get a win.  Goltz walked one batter and had one strikeout.  Goltz was making his second start for the RedHawks and his third appearance of the season.  With the win Fargo-Moorhead earned its third straight series win and improved their overall record to 10-3 on the season.
 
The ‘Hawks will wrap up their current four-game set with the RailCats (3-10) on Thursday in their first Business Day Special of the year. Todd George (1-0, 1.38) is set to take the mound for Fargo-Moorhead and will face the RailCats’ Josh Habel (1-1, 5.02). The first pitch is scheduled for 12:35 p.m. as the RedHawks close out their seven-game homestand before heading to Kansas City on Friday.
Things are already getting under way for the 2006 Fergus Falls Area Youth Football Association's second season.  The Fergus Falls Otters Football Booster Club and the FFHS Otters High School coaching staff were highly pleased with the FFAYFA's initial season last fall and look forward to an even better 2007.  Sign up for the upcoming season is scheduled for Saturday, June third and Saturday, June 17th from 9:00 to 11:00 a.m. at the Fergus Falls Middle School Cafeteria.  Youngsters entering third through sixth grades are eligible to participate.
 
Last season there were (28) 3rd graders, (35) 4th graders, (47) 5th graders and (44) 6th graders for a total of 154 participants.  Twelve teams competed with six in each division and this year they are expecting an even higher total.  If that happens there will more than likely be two additional teams added in each division, making for a total of sixteen teams.  Teams would be reduced to 9-10 players per team at the 3rd/4th grade level and 10-12 players per team at the 5th/6th grade level.
 
"We are trying to form slightly smaller teams, so we have less kids standing around watching and more playing the game," said co-ordinator Dan Prischmann.  "One thing we definitely want people to be aware of is that this is a Fergus Falls Area program, not just for Fergus Falls students but for students from all around the area.  We had kids from Underwood, Pelican Rapids, Battle Lake, Elbow Lake, Ashby and other areas participating and we hope for more area kids this year."
 
Prischmann and his brother, Carl Prischmann, spent countless hours organizing the program last season and are geared up for another great year.  These guys are so dedicated to providing opportunities to kids in our community and are to be commended for their hard work.  Practices will start the week of August 22nd with the games running from the week of September 4th through October 14th.  If you have any questions on the FFAYFA you can contact Dan at 739-2064.

From Monday, June 5 through Wednesday, June 7 from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 noon, Hillcrest boys basketball coach Gregg Preston will be conducting a basketball camp for any area boys going into fourth through seventh grades.  The camp will be held at the new Hillcrest gym. Registration forms can be picked up at the main office at Hillcrest and the cost is 30 dollars.
 
Members of the Fergus Falls high school and middle school golf teams have the opportunity to participate in the FFHS Golf Camp beginning on June 12 at Pebble Lake Golf Course.  Coach Tufte will be joined by boys coach Ben Jurgens and Pebble Lake Pro Jeff Bass in providing instruction.  The cost is $100.00 and includes summer long individual check-ups with Bass. 
 
"There's a lot to this game and one of the main things we want to stress this summer is teaching the kids how to practice," Tufte said.
 
Interested golfers can contact the pro shop or one of the coaches for more information.
 
Congratulations to sophomore Mike Tuel of the Fergus Falls boys golf team.  Mike qualified for the State Class AA meet with a two-day total of 148 which included a 3-under par 69 on the second day of the tournament at Greystone in Sauk Centre.  Tuel had to pass fifteen golfers on the second day to qualify.  He is the first Otter golfer since John Ouren in 2002 to qualify for the boys state meet.
 
The 4-Person Scramble was held at Pebble Lake Golf Course in Fergus Falls on Saturday.  In the Gross Division, the team of Jere Hansen, Brian Shuck, John Hagge and Chuck Hyslop took first place with a 56 and the team of Charlie Cavanagh, Jay Cavanagh, Mike Cavanagh and Blake Riewer was second with a 57.  In the Net Division, Tom Anderson, Jerry Anderson, Cathy Anderson and James Marley finished first with a score of 56.7 and the team of Mike Murphy, Joe Murphy, John Krogsrude and Paul Albrecht was second with a score of 56.8.
 
Albrecht won the Closest to the Pin Contest on number two, in the category of golfers with a handicap under 10 and Lincoln Kalenberg was the winner in the 10 and over category.  Long Drive on the fifth hole went to Derek Hasselberg in the 10 and under handicap division, while Jesse Schuler won the longest drive competition in the 10 and over handicap division.  The longest putt made on the 18th hole went to Duane Siverson.
 
The second annual Runaway Bride 5K and 1 Mile Run/Walk is coming up on Saturday, June 10 beginning at 5:30 p.m. as a part of Summerfest.  Registration can be done online at www.active.com until June 7 with early discounts available.  Race day registration will be held at the Fergus Falls Senior High School from 4:00 to 5:15 p.m.  For more information you can contact Susan Peterson, the Race Director, at (218) 736-2554 or by e-mail at runawaybride5k@yahoo.com.

Wasiloski Closes Out College Baseball Career
Can it really be true?  Is Troy Wasiloski done with his college baseball career?  Seems like it just started!  What a journey it was!  Even with shoulder problems which led to surgery a couple of years ago, Wasiloski put up some extremely impressive numbers for the Fighting Sioux baseball team and will go down in the UND history books as one of the best hitters of all-time for the Sioux.
 
Wasiloski was named to the All-NCC team for the third consecutive season after compiling a .394 batting average this year, which is the tenth-highest average in Sioux history for a single season.  He also had fifteen doubles, which is good for a four-way tie for seventh. 
 
In his career, he has accumulated a batting average of .363 (196 H, 540 AB), placing him fourth on the all-time list.  Wasiloski is also ranked in many UND career categories such as: tied for fifth in At-Bats (540), third in Hits (196), fifth in Runs (142), tied for seventh in Doubles (33), tied for second in Triples (9), third in Home Runs (32), fourth in Runs Batted In (150) and fifth in Total Bases (341).
 
Wasiloski was fifth in the NCC in batting with his .394 average and his 15 doubles led the conference.  That number is even more impressive when you consider he played in thirteen fewer games than the player ranked second in doubles.
 
Troy has been a three-year starter in the infield for UND, primarily at third base. 
 
Kirby Carr, a junior at Bethel College in St. Paul, and his brother, Brandon Carr, a sophomore at Bethel, were both named to the All-MIAC team.  Kirby led the Royals with eight doubles, seven home runs, 31 RBI and a .703 slugging percentage.  His .405 batting average was second to his little brother.  Brandon hit .468, leading the team in hits (59) and at bats (126).  He also scored a team high 31 runs and stole 18 bases to finish first in that category.  Kirby was also named second team ESPN The Magazine Academic All-District.  Kirby's GPA is 3.48.
 
Two other former Otters also are on the Bethel roster.  Mike Gaustad struggled at the plate this season, finishing at .235, but he played exceptionally in the field, committing only six errors in 37 games at second base.  Mike drove in 14 runs and scored 15.  Jared Bangs served as a back-up catcher and played in nine games for the Royals, batting .258 with 8 hits in 31 at bats.
 
For the first time since 1982 the Valley City State University softball team has qualified for the NAIA National Tournament.  The Lady Vikings won the Region III championship as the number seven seed and is in Decatur, Alabama for the National Tournament this weekend.  Battle Lake High School and MSCTC graduate Kelli Baumgartner is a member of the team.  Baumgartner hit .250, starting 35 of the 37 games this season. She had four doubles, one triple, two home runs, 20 RBI and 25 runs scored.  Her slugging percentage is .357 and she stole 11 bases in 14 attempts. 
 
In the Region III Tournament, Baumgartner drove in the only run of the opening round win over second seeded Dana College to get things rolling for VCSU.  In game two, they recorded a 4-2 win over third-seeded Morningside.  That was followed by a 1-0 win over top-seeded Dickinson State.  Dickinson State came back through the losers' bracket to face the Vikings a second time and Valley City State won the game 3-1 to claim the Region title.
 
Kelli is a great competitor and played three sports, volleyball, basketball and softball at Battle Lake High School and MSCTC.  She is a winner and I'm sure is one of the main contributors to this championship team.  She can play on my team anytime!! 
 
The Fergus Falls Jaycees, along with the Fergus Falls Hurricanes Baseball Team, will host the annual Pitch, Hit and Run competition at American Legion Field at DeLagoon Park in Fergus Falls.  Boys and girls ages 7-14 will participate in a baseball style competition.  Registration begins at 10:00 a.m. with the competition starting at 10:30 a.m.
 
Kellen Shebeck is once again going to coach the American Legion Post 30 baseball team this summer.  First, Kellen will be married on the third of June.  Congratulations Coach Shebeck!  A sign-up form for American Legion baseball is available in the Fergus Falls Senior High School office.  Anyone with any questions can contact Kellen at 218-205-1427.

Brue Adds to Athletic Duties at Hillcrest
Charlie Brue will become a full time Activities Director/Varsity Coach during the 2006-2007 school year at Hillcrest Lutheran Academy in Fergus Falls.  Brue, who coached the Comet football team last fall, has assumed the title of Activities Director and will be moving into an office in the new Student Activities Center.
 
Brue has also been named as the replacement for Darren Rogness, who resigned as Head Girls Basketball Coach at the end of the winter season. 
 
"Charlie is a very organized person and I think he will do a tremendous job in the positions he's been hired to fill," said Hillcrest Assistant Principal Jeff Isaac
 
Brue will continue to teach two computer classes a day and will spend the other five hours on his duties as Activities Director. 
 
The Athletic Director position became available when Pete Campion left earlier this year and the position was expanded to include all extra-curricular activites, becoming an Activities Director position.
 
Emily Benson, who was the assistant girls soccer coach this past fall, will replace Joanna Tysdal as head coach for the 2006 season.  Benson is also a Resident Assistant at Hillcrest and a part time physical education instructor.
 
Isaac said the recently completed HIT Basketball Tournament was a huge success with over 1,500 people attending the championships games at the new gymnasium.  "We were very pleased with the tournament this year," Isaac stated.  "It was very well attended and it was very exciting to have games played on campus in our new facility.  Charlie did a nice job of organizing and running it."
 
Hillcrest also raised around $20,000 at their annual auction this year.  The money is being applied to the 'Save Me a Seat' promotion to help finish installing the seating in the Student Activities Center.  Isaac says 57% of the 996 seats have been sold.  Anyone wishing to donate may give $200.00 toward the program.  All donors will be listed on a large placque that will be on display in the facility.  Principal Steve Brue is the man to talk to to make a donation. He can be reached at the school, (218) 739-3371.
 
The Annual HIT Golf Tournament is scheduled for Wednesday, June 14 at one o'clock at Pebble Lake Golf Course in Fergus Falls.  Charlie Brue is coordinating the event and more information can be obtained by calling the above number.
 
The update from Fort Myers on Justin Arneson is as follows.  Arne is hitting .212 (11-52), with three doubles, a triple, six runs batted in and one run scored in fifteen games.  He has also struck out 14 times.  The Miracle are 17-13 and leading the West Division of the Florida State League by one game.  After playing a few games at second base earlier in the season, Arneson has been playing strictly in the outfield in his most recent games.  He has attempted only one stolen base and was thrown out.  Arneson is a 2000 Fergus Falls High School and 2002 FFCC graduate who was signed by the Twins out of a tryout camp in 2002.
