Bauman Named MCCC Player of the Week
Spartan Post Man Bill Bauman has been named the Minnesota Community College Conference Southern Division Player of the Week.
Bauman, a sophomore at MSCTC-Fergus Falls, averaged 24.5 points, 6.5 rebounds, and shot 74% from the field for the week.  He is a 6'7" Post from Prior Lake.  Bauman is averaging 18 points, 8 rebounds, while shooting 59% from the field on the season for the 12-7 Spartans.

"It's a very well deserved honor," mentioned Head Coach Jason Retzlaff.  "Not only did Bill have an outstanding week, he has had a great season as well.  He has been a force for us on the inside."
 
Former Spartan Olufemi Solaja is enjoying an outstanding senior season at Augsburg College, even if his team is struggling to earn victories (5-11).  Solaja leads the MIAC in field goal percentage (60.5%), hitting 92-of-152 shots.  He is also first in offensive rebounds (61), second in defensive rebounds (118) and second in total rebounds (179), averaging 11.2 boards per game.  Solaja is also scoring 13 points per game, 20th in the MIAC, and has recorded 15 blocked shots.
 
Earlier this season, Duane Siverson, the long time men's basketball coach at Concordia College in Moorhead, announced that he would be stepping down at the end of the season.  Now, another head coach, Steve Baumgartner of the men's hockey team, has decided to resign at the completion of the 2007-2008 season.  Baumgartner has been the head men's hockey coach at Concordia since 1986-87 and is in his 22nd year in the position.
 
Terri Strom, Head Coach of the Lady Spartans volleyball team, has announced that the Spartans will be hosting a volleyball camp from June 23-26.  There will be two sessions with grades 9-12 going from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 noon and grades 6-8 meeting from 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. each day.  The cost will be $80.00 per participant.  Conducting the camp will be Coach Strom and assistant Coach Renae Rasmusson, along with the Spartan volleyball players.
 
"The staff will work hard to provide opportunities to develop and refine individual skills and team play," said Strom. "There will also be a one hour session on health and nutrition."
 
Registration forms will be mailed out to local head coach in the next few weeks.  If players do not receive a form by the end of February, or need more information on the camp they can call 320-834-4517.  Forms will also be available at the main desk at the college.

Stebe Honored
MSCTC-Fergus Falls Sophomore Guard Scott Stebe has been named the MCCC (Minnesota Community College Conference) Southern Division Player of the week. 
 
Stebe, the 5'11" Guard from Gonvick, MN, averaged 22 points and 3 assists while shooting 57% from three point range as the Spartans went 1-1 during the week with a win over Ridgewater and a loss to Minneapolis.  He also broke the Spartans single game three point record by converting on nine three point field goals against Ridgewater College.  On the season, Stebe is currently averaging 19 points, 4 assists and 4 rebounds per game, while shooting 44% on 3's for the 11-5 Spartans.

"It's a great honor for Scott," noted Spartan Head Coach Jason Retzlaff.  "He is one of the best shooters our program has ever had and he is having an outstanding season."
 
Stebe also moved into third place in career three-point field goals with 122, one behind Dustin Monsebroten.  He went past Coach Retzlaff, Aaron Austin and Brett Inniger in his game with Minnesota West.  Andy Parochka is the career leader with 181 3-point field goals.

Post Season FB Honors and 2,000 Point Club

Seven Minnesota Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (MIAC) football student-athletes have been named to the ninth annual D3football.com All-America Team. Of those seven, Bethel University senior safety Brandon Carr (Fergus Falls, Minn.) was the only First Team All-American. 

Carr was a key member of Bethelís defense this past season, leading the team and the MIAC with seven pass interceptions and 15 pass break-ups. He also had 69 tackles (40 solo, 29 assists) including two for a loss, as well as a forced fumble. His poise and leadership were the cornerstones of a pass and rush defense that ranked second in the conference and held opponents to less than 20 points per game in six of Bethelís last eight games, including the playoffs. Carr was twice named MIAC Defensive Player of the Week and earned a spot on the All-Conference First Team Defense for the second year in a row.

 

Saint John's Nick Gunderson and Augsburg's Royce Winford were second team selections, while St. Olaf's Horace Gant was a third team choice. Saint John's Andrew Salvato, St. Thomas' P.J. Theisen, and Concordia's Grant Weller were honorable mention picks.

 

Carr was also named to the Associated Press Little All-American Team as a second team selection.

 

When Fergus Falls senior Hannah Draxten reached the 2,000 career point mark last week it prompted some questions about that milestone.  How many players have reached that mark in Minnesota girls basketball history?  How many have scored 3,000 plus?  Where will Hannah likely wind up on the all time state list?

 

Well my research reveals that Hannah is the 62nd player to accomplish that feat. 

 

Five players have scored over 3,000 points, led by Katie Ohm of Elgin-Millville with 3,694 points.  She is followed by Megan Taylor of Roseau with 3,300, Janet Karvonen of New York Mills with 3,129, Susan King from Academy of Holy Angels with 3,037, and Kierah Kimbrough of Badger-Greenbush-Middle River with 3,036. Fosstonís Kayla Bagaason (2,824) and Kelly Roysland (2,811) are the closest to 3,000 without reaching that mark.

 

If she averages 20 points per game the rest of the season, including a generous playoff run of games, she could finish with as many as 2,400-plus points and would be in the top 20, possibly as high as sixteenth all-time.  Thatís a projection based on her staying healthy and the Otters playing well in the post season.

 

Ashley Samuelson, a 2005 Underwood High School graduate is 12th all-time with 2,695 points.  Ashley is also third all-time in free throws made (633) and free throws attempted (848), and second in career steals (688).  Samuelson is also 33rd in rebounds with 1,166.  Samuelson, who transferred to NDSU from Colorado State after her first year of college eligibility, is re-habbing a knee injury and is being red-shirted this season.

 

Other notable 2,000 point scorers from around the area include Rhonda Birch from Wadena-Deer Creek with 2,524, Jenny Brenden from Sauk Rapids-Rice with 2,279, Janessa Wolff of Park Rapids Area with 2,116, Lindsey Schultz of Ulen-Hitterdal with 2,070, Courtney Brewer of Hancock with 2,054 and Shannon Francis of Mahnomen with 2,037.  Former Gopher great Lindsay Whalen from Hutchinson just missed the milestone, ending her high school career with 1,996 points.
