Backcourt Basketball Registration Approaches
We wrote about the Fergus Fall Hockey Association registration in this column a couple of weeks ago, now it's time for Backcourt Basketball registration.  As the calendar flips to October, plans are well underway for the start of another exciting winter season.
 
Backcourt Basketball registration will be held on Saturday, October 14th from 9:30 a.m. to 12:00 noon in the Fergus Falls High School gymnasium for kindergarten through eighth graders.  
 
The cost is $25 for kindergarten through second grade, $40 for grades 3 through 8.  Third graders receive shorts and a reversible jersey, 4th through 8th graders will receive shorts.  All 7th graders will receive their own leather basketball at their first practice.
 
The dates for backcourt practices will be October 28th through December 9th for Kindergarten through second grade and October 28th through January 27th for grades 3 through 8.
 
The third annual Otter Fan Dance is scheduled for Friday, October 6th, following the Homecoming Football game at the Eagles Ship in Fergus Falls.  Burgers will be available on the Deck and music will be provided by "Night Moves".  All Otter fans 21 or older are welcome.  Five dollar admission wristbands will be sold at the homecoming game on the Northwest end of the Football Field near the concession stand.
 
It's a boy for Niki and Mike Welde!  The Fergus Falls girls cross country and track coach and her husband had their first child on Friday at 12:08 p.m. (a little later than expected)!  He weighed in at 8 pounds, 9 ounces and was 21 inches long.  I haven't heard a name yet!  I was sure the baby would be born on Thursday, since that was the John Hermes Invitational, but I guess I was wrong!  Father reports Mother and Baby are doing fine.  Congratulations Niki and Mike!

Carr's Continue to Lead at Behel
Kirby Carr and Brandon Carr continue to lead the Bethel Royals football team.  This year, Kirby is a senior outside linebacker and Brandon is a junior safety.  The two have played key roles in a 3-0 start by the Royals, which includes a 21-7 MIAC win over Concordia College of Moorhead in their most recent game.
 
Kirby earned the MIAC Defensive Player of the Week honors for his performance in the September 9 game against Simpson College, which was won by Bethel 23-17.  Carr had eight tackles, forced a fumble, broke up one pass play, and returned an interception 58 yards for a touchdowns, which was a turning point in the game.  He also threw a 28-yard pass to brother Brandon on a fake punt, resulting in a key first down.
 
In the win over the Cobbers, Brandon had two interceptions for a total of 55 yards and was in on seven tackles, including three solo's.  Kirby had nine tackles, consisting of one solo and eight assists.
 
Another Fergus Falls High School graduate, Jared Bangs, played an important role in the first two weeks of the season, filling in for Phil Porta, Bethel's outstanding running back, while Porta was injured.  Bangs has carried the ball 60 times for 210 yards, a 3.5 yard per carry average, and leads the Royals in all purpose yardage through the first three games.  Porta is back now, gaining 141 yards against Concordia, but the coaching staff can have confidence in what Bangs is able to do if called upon to fill in for Porta again.
 
Hillcrest and MSCTC grad Luke Hansen has a pair of receptions for 17 yards and has returned a kickoff for 20 yards.  The Fergus Falls football connection has worked very well for the Royals.  I am hoping to get to one of their games this season and the one at St. John's on the eleventh of November, or the homecoming game on September 30th against St. Thomas may be the two chances I have.  That St. John's game will probably be for the MIAC title.
 
Meanwhile, Liz Glesne, a 2004 Underwood High School graduate, is now a junior at Bethel College and an outside hitter on the 8-2 Royals volleyball team.  In a victory over St. Mary's on September 13, Glesne reached the 1,000 career kill mark.  She has a .290 hitting percentage, leads the team with 164 kills, has 16 blocks and 44 digs.
 
Former Hillcrest athlete Abby Scheel is a sophomore middle hitter at Concordia College in Moorhead.  The Cobbers are 9-1 to start the season and Abby is second on the team with 33 blocks and leads the team with 19 solo blocks.  She has recorded 43 kills and has a .238 hitting percentage.
 
Three former Comets, Ty Crabtree, Jake Stroud and Sam Townsend are all members of the Northwestern Eagles football team.  Townsend is a senior defensive lineman, Stroud a sophomore quarterback, and Crabtree a freshman linebacker.  Stroud transfered to Northwestern after a year at St. Olaf College in Northfield.
 
Amanda Jensen, another former Hillcrest athlete, is a senior captain for the Northwestern Women's Soccer team.  She is in her fourth year as a starter and has been a member of the UMAC All-Conference first team for three straight years.
 
Freddy Gill, yet another former HLA athlete, is a junior midfielder for the Northwestern Men's soccer team.  Freddy is from Brazil.
 
South Dakota State University defender Karoline Brause has been named the United Soccer Conference Defensive Player of the Week for her efforts against Drake this past weekend.

Brause, a senior from Fergus Falls, scored the lone goal for South Dakota State in a 3-1 loss to Drake University this past weekend. The goal was Brause’s first career goal as a Jackrabbit.  SDSU, is now 3-3-1 on the season.
