Fredrickson and Moenkedick Earn All Division Honors

Katie Fredrickson of the M State Lady softball team has been selected first team All Southern Division for the Minnesota College Athletic Conference (MCAC). Christine Moenkedick received second team All Division honors for her year.

 

Fredrickson, a sophomore from Fergus Falls, played every game for the Lady Spartans at shortstop. Along with being one of the top fielding shortstops in the division, she really compiled some impressive statistics with her bat. In 35 games and 114 at bats, Katie had a batting average of .518 with 29 runs batted in, five homeruns, and 12 doubles. She also scored 32 runs for the season. She was named Southern Division Player of the Week for week five. That week she hit at a .750 clip with 2 homeruns and 9 runs batted in. Katie was a second team selection last year.

 

Christine Moenkedick was honored for her work on the mound. Moenkedick, who was the Lady Spartans only true pitcher, suffered some early season non-divisional losses, but really pitched well in divisional play. She was 11-17 overall, but was 8-8 in a very tough southern division. She led the entire state in innings pitched with 194 and lowered her earned run average to 5.3. Christine is a freshman from Bertha. She was also named Southern Division Pitcher of the Week in back to back weeks for weeks three and four. Both weeks she won three of the four divisional games she started.

Fergus Falls Hires Three New Head Coaches
The Fergus Falls School District has hired three new head coaches for varsity sports teams and the search for a fourth is still in progress.  Beau Krueger (Boys Soccer), Jamie (Huskey) Lill (Girls Tennis) and Mark Kitzman (Boys Cross Country) have all been hired to fill positions being vacated by Lowell Carpenter, Norm Newell and Randy Hansen.
 
Beau Krueger is a 1994 Fergus Falls High School graduate who played soccer for the Otters, then at the club level at both NDSU and MSUM.  He taught sixth grade and coached soccer at the middle school level for six years in the Twin Cities and has been an Otter assistant coach for the past six seasons under both Ben Jurgens and Carpenter.  Beau is married to Jennifer (Carpenter), who also graduated from FFHS in 1994.  They have three children, Owen (8), Ari (5) and Rhys (2).  Beau is currently attending classes at M State and will be starting the RN nursing program in the fall.  "I continue to play soccer with teammates from the Fergus Falls area, including several young men I have coached on the Fergus Falls boys team, in Fargo and Pelican Rapids," said Krueger.  "I look forward each year to an annual reunion with players and friends from college.  We enter one tournament per year, either the Flatlands indoor tournament in Fargo, or now that we are a little more 'experienced' we can play in the over 30 Ancient Rangers tournament in Blaine."
 
Jamie (Huskey) Lill is originally from Fergus Falls and graduated from FFHS in 1999.  She was involved in tennis, basketball and softball for the Otters and attended MSUM where she played Dragon tennis while getting her degree in education.   Jamie, her husband John and their three young girls live in Moorhead.  "I have previously coached varsity volleyball and tennis, and am excited to be coaching the Fergus Falls Otters tennis team," said Lill.
 
Mark Kitzman is a graduate of the University of Wisconsin - LaCrosse where he developed his passion for running.  Mark conducted athletic testing and worked in cardiac rehabilitation during his study of Therapeutic Recreation.  Mark has done extensive reading and is a self coached marathon runner and triathlete.  He has completed 38 marathons in his lifetime and has raced at distances from the mile to the 26.2 mile marathon.  He has assisted in coaching track and cross country in the past as well as swimming and nordic skiing.  Mark currently works as a Recreation Therapy Coordinator at the Minnesota Veterans Home in Fergus Falls.  He lives in Fergus Falls with his wife Sandy.  They have three children, Kelly, Susie and Joe who have all participated in track and cross country at FFHS.
 
The search is continuing for a Head Coach for the Fergus Falls High School Girls Basketball program.  Josh Mohagen resigned that position at the end of the recent season and took the job as Head Coach of the M State Spartans Men's Basketball team.
