Moore and Peterson to Become Lady Spartans
Deveny Moore (Fergus Falls) and Ashley Peterson (Underwood) will both become Lady Spartans in the fall.  MSCTC Head Womens Basketball Coach Ann Williams is excited to have both players committed and first year Head Volleyball Coach Teri Strom will also benefit from their presence on campus as both are also volleyball players.
 
Moore, a captain for the Otters, was named the Defensive Player of the Year and was also an Academic All-State selection.  Peterson, averaged 15 points per game as one of the top scorers in the Little Eight conference.  She was also a team captain and an Academic All-State selection.  Williams anticipates more announcements in the very near future.
 
The Spartan baseball team has clinched a berth in the MCCC State Tournament which will be played at the beautiful complex in St. Cloud which includes Dick Putz Field and Joe Faber Field.  The tournament bracket will be announced Monday.  Under Kent Bothwell the Spartans have won three state titles, in 2002, 2204 and 2005.  They also won the Region XIII title in 2004, making their first appearance in the Divison III NJCAA College Baseball World Series.
 
The Lady Spartans will participate in the MCCC State Tournament in Brainerd on Saturday and Sunday.  They are not eligible to advance to further tournament play following the state event.
 
The first golf tournament of the season was held on Sunday at Pebble Lake Golf Club in Fergus Falls as the 2-Man Bestball event was played on a beautiful spring day.  The team of Chuck Lundeen and Brian Shuck won the 1st Place Gross Division title with a score of 67, while John Hagge and Jere Hansen took second place with a 71 and the team of Wade Jyrkas and Dan Madsen wound up third with a 72.  Jake Cook and Adrian Smith won the Net Division championship with a 61, two strokes ahead of Shane Eastman and Michael Eastman and three in front of the third place team of Jim DeBoer and Dave Thacker
 
The low individual gross score was a 74 by Shuck, with Erik Johnson shooting a 75.  The low individual net score was a 73 from Dave Conzemius, Jr. and Shane Eastman.  Conzemius won the tie-breaker.
 
Contest winners were Wade Jyrkas for longest drive, Gene Hebl for Closest to the Pin and Lonny Duenow for the longest putt.

Kolle and Walters Post Victories
Andy 'Kaos' Kolle and Zach 'Jungle Boy' Walters were both winners in the ring on Saturday night at the Fargo Civic Center. 
 
Kolle won the main event by disqualification in his middleweight fight with Rodrigues Moungo.  Moungo was disqualified after delivering several low blows and receiving two warnings from the referee.  The first low blow came in the second round and brought a chorus of boos from the 1,500 fans in attendance.   Kolle easily won every round as the southpaw was able to keep Moungo off balance througout the night.  The win puts Kolle, a student at NDSU, at 13-1 in his pro career.
 
In the co-feature, Walters won a six-round unanimous decision over Jeffrey Osborne, Jr., from Iowa.  Walters complimented Osborne's style saying, "He put constant pressure on me, coming over the top and then coming in to get me when we clenched.  He had a great game plan."
 
Walters is now 18-2 in his professional career.  His next fight will be on May 4th at the Wessman Arena in Superior, Wisconsin.  He will be featured in Superior Showdown III.  His opponent hasn't been announced.

Rumble on the Red
Two boxers who got their start in Fergus Falls will headline the card for the 'Rumble on the Red' Saturday night at the Fargo Civic Center.  The doors open at seven o'clock and the fights begin at eight p.m.
 
Andy 'Kaos' Kolle, 24, currently a student at NDSU, will be facing Rodrigues Moungo, 34, in the main event.  Kolle is 12-1 with 10 ko's and Moungo is 12-13 with 9 ko's.  Kolle is a Super Middleweight.
 
Zach 'Jungle Boy' Walters, 26, a graduate of UMD, will battle Jeffrey Osborne, Jr. (4-3-2, 1 ko), 28, an Iowa native in the other featured bout.  Walters (17-2-0, 13 ko's) is the Minnesota State Light Heavyweight Champion and will in the ring for his fifth fight since September. 
 
Both fighters are managed by Chuck 'Sharky' Horton and box out of Horton's Gym in Duluth.
 
The Fergus Falls High School Alumni Basketball Tournament has been canceled.  Five teams needed to be registered in advance of the event which was scheduled to be held on Saturday, but just two full teams and a partial team had signed up.  Organizers say the District 544 Alumni Foundation will try again next year.
 
Registration for the Fergus Falls Adult Softball Leagues is underway.  Teams can sign up through April 20th at the Parks and Recreation office on South Peck Street.  Team fees are $525 and league play begins the week of May 14th.  For more information call 739-3205.
 
A Minnesota Twins Baseball Clinic will be hosted by the Fergus Falls Parks and Recreation Department at American Legion Field at DeLagoon Park.  The clinic will be held on Friday, June 8th from 12:00 to 3:00 p.m.  It's free for all boys and girls between the ages of five and sixteen.  The clinic staff consists of former players, coaches and scouts.
 
Frustrating is the best word I can think of to describe what's happening this spring.  Spring sports teams are having events postponed or canceled on a daily basis and not all of them will be able to be rescheduled.  Indoor practice gets very old for outdoor sports and for the sake of the players and coaches I sure hope the weather breaks soon so they can start practice for real and get the games rolling.  Kent Bothwell of the Spartan baseball team told me that their state tournament is set for May fifth through the seventh.  That's not going to leave them much time to get their season played.  The Spartans have already lost 19 games to the weather.
 
Dustin Johnson, a former Barnesville High School student who played American Legion baseball for Post 153, is now pitching for Waldorf College in Forest City, Iowa.  His first appearance came at the Metrodome on March 21st against Central College from Pella, Iowa.  Dustin started the game, pitched four innings, allowed four hits and nor runs.  He didn't issue any walks and didn't have a strikeout.  Waldorf wound up winning the game 5-4.  On March 27th he threw 1 2/3 innings, gave up four runs and struck out a batter as he took the loss against Northwestern putting his record at 1-1.  Waldorf is 5-12 on the year under their new Head Coach Chad Gassman.
