Johnson Retires as Ashby Volleyball Coach
After 26 years of volleyball coaching in Ashby, Brenda Johnson has retired from the position.  Johnson has also retired after 20 years as the Summer Recreation Director in Ashby and will no longer serve as an assistant Track and Field Coach.  The Ashby school board accepted her retirement from coaching at the February meeting.  She will continue to teach 4th grad in Ashby and is the Head Women's Basketball Coach at M State-Fergus Falls.
 
Johnson also reported that Rhoda Christenson of the lady Spartans was named to the Southern Division 1st team and was named 1st Team All-State in the MCAC.  Alyssa Blair, who has signed a letter of intent to play at Mayville State, was named to the Southern Division 2nd team and was named 2nd Team All-State.  Maria Johnson was an honorable mention All-State selection.
 
In other news from Ashby High School, former Head Football Coach Andy Campbell will be taking over the Des Moines (IA) Lincoln High School football team.  Lincoln High School is the largest high school in the state of Iowa with around 2,200 kids enrolled.
 
"My family and I are very excited and privileged for this opportunity to have been selected to lead an outstanding program in such a dynamic, metropolitan city like Des Moines," said Campbell.  "I have learned quite a bit about people, politics and myself as a coach and educator during my time at Ashby.  I feel I have left the football program in a much better spot than when I took it over two years ago."

Masten Named 2nd Team All American

Fergus Falls High School graduate and Bethel College junior Cristina Masten was recently named a 2013 D-III West Second Team All-American by United States College Hockey Online.

 

Masten was one of just 24 NCAA D-III women's hockey players honored as a first or second team All-American after leading the MIAC in scoring and setting new Bethel records in points (37) and goals scored (24). She is the third Bethel Royal to earn All-American honors and the second straight season the Royals have had an All-American selection after Anna Carlson earned the honors in 2011-12.

Masten's MIAC leading point total ranked seventh in the country and her 24 goals were the third most in the nation. The 24 goals also tied a MIAC record, held by Emily Kearns of Saint Mary's, set in the 2002-03 season.

Masten is set to return for her senior season in 2013-14 and will continue her assault on the Bethel women's hockey record book. She needs 19 points to break the Royals all-time scoring mark of 105 points held by Bethany Murphy-Aultman (2006-09). Masten has already broken the career goal scoring mark of 50 set by Sandra Feltman (2006-09) with 55 goals in her first three seasons. 

 

A total of seven Bethel Royals women's hockey players were honored by the Minnesota Intercollegiate Athletic Conference with the announcement of the 2012-13 women's hockey awards. Three Royals, senior Biz Huss and junior's Lindsay Burman and Cristina Masten, were named to the All-Conference Team. A pair of outstanding freshman, goalie Erika Allen and forward Caroline Kivisto were named to the six person All-Rookie Team while sophomore Kalie Johnson was named All-Conference Honorable Mention. Junior Casie Ecklund was Bethel's representative on the Women's Hockey All-MIAC Sportsmanship Team.

Masten ran away with the MIAC scoring title as she set new Bethel marks in points and goals scored this season in earning her third straight All-Conference selection. It was also the third straight selection for Huss who will leave Bethel in fourth place on the all-time leading scorers list at BU.

Lakeland Hospice Foundation is teaming up with the Harmon Killebrew Family, the Minnesota Twins and KLN Family Brands to create Harmon Killebrew Hospice Day at Target field on Saturday, Ausust 17, 2013.
People remember Harmon Killebrew as a man with a gentle heart and a powerful swing that earned him a place in the National Baseball Hall of Fame.  What many people donít know about Harmon Killebrew was his dedication and love for hospice care.  After two near-death experiences, Harmon found his calling by becoming a hospice volunteer and advocate.  After Harmonís passing in 2011, his wife Nita Killebrew continues her husbandís legacy and love of hospice by sharing their story.  ďIím very stunned by how little people know about the incredible services and comfort hospice provides,Ē states Nita Killebrew.

The Lakeland Hospice Foundation is teaming up with Nita Killebrew, the Minnesota Twins and KLN Family Brands to honor Harmonís passion for hospice care by hosting Harmon Killebrew Hospice Day at Target Field on Saturday, August 17, 2013.  A caravan of business-sponsored buses and fan buses will travel down to the game to show support for hospice care.  There is also an opportunity for motorcycle riders to join in on Harmonís Ride for Hospice that will also take place that day. 

A one-of-a-kind Harmon Killebrew 2013 Road King Harley motorcycle will be raffled off at a pregame ceremony at the August 17 game at Target Field.  Former World Series Twins player, Dan Gladden will ride the Harmon Killebrew Harley onto the field where Nita Killebrew will draw the winning ticket. Raffle tickets are available for $20 each and you do not have to be present to win.
