The awards banquet for the M State Spartans will be held on Monday, May 6 in Legacy Hall on the Fergus Falls campus.  This banquet honors all of the Spartan athletic teams and the achievements of the M State student athletes during the past year.
 
The banquet is a tradition that has reached 40 years and allows the coaches, the college and the community to recognize the achievements of these student athletes.
 
"This banquet is not only for the athletes and coaches, but for parents, family, faculty and staff, and the loyal supporters of M State that make the campus and the athletic programs unique and successful," said Coach Steve King.
 
The social hour begins at 6:00pm with the program starting at 6:30pm.  A meal featuring bar-b-ques, potato salad, chips, ice cream and a beverage will be served at 7:15pm for a free will donation.  The program will resume at 7:45pm with the presentation of the Female and Male Student Athletes of the Year capping the evening at 8:30pm.

Volunteers Needed for Athletic Republic Run
Karoline Gustafson, Athletic Republic Sports Trainer and volunteer coordinator for the Athletic Republic Run is putting out a call for race day volunteers.
 
"The race is less than two months away and we are still in need of more volunteers," said Gustafson.  "Traffic control is our biggest concern as we need to keep our racers safe.  If you are considering participating in the race you can sign up at http://www.athleticrepublicrun.com.  If you are not racing, come out and give us a hand."
 
The race is on Saturday, June 1 and will take most of the morning depending on where you are positioned along the race route.  Registration for the race is up 300% and Athletic Republic is shooting for about 1,500 racers this year.
 
Races include a half marathon, half marathon relay, 5K, 1 mile run/walk and a combo race (5K and 1 mile).  All proceeds benefit the Lake Region Healthcare Cancer Care and Research Center in Fergus Falls.
 
For more information or to volunteer contact Karoline Gustafson at 218-736-8451 or [email protected].
 
Gustafson and fellow trainer Natalie Knutson are also promoting a couple of programs in conjunction with the Athletic Republic Run. 
 
"Run the Schools is one of the programs," said Knutson.  "The idea behind this is to simply get kids more active and involved.  We know how rewarding the race environment is and thought this would be a cool motivation for the kids.  We received a $1,000 grant from the LRHC foundation to make this program possible.  During the months of April and May, kids will be participating in more cardio/run activities during the PE time, recess time and on their own time in preparation for the Athletic Republic 1 mile or 5K.  The grant has allowed us to fund as many kids, grades 1-6 as possible until our grant money is gone.  In addition to the children racing free, parents/siblings/supporters of that child can race for the cheapest rate possible, so even if they sign up on May 30, they can still register for the 5K at $20.  It's a win/win!  Our hope is that this experience will motivate the families to continue staying active, and the running program itself is somethign we would like to hlep integrate into the schools next Fall."
 
Fergus Falls schools, including Morning Son Christian School, and Underwood schools are all participating in the Run the Schools program.
 
The second aspect that is being promoted are the Awareness Groups.  This is an opportunity for individuals to take part in the race, but for a specific reason. 
 
"Maybe this is a way of taking the 'race' stigma out of the equation and motivating people to get out and active," commented Gustafson.  "Individuals have stepped forward to lead various Awareness Groups within this community.  They are looking for supporters within.  The best support group, distinguishing themselves in some way, will also be awarded a prize.  We have families of people traveling in, so even expanding our networks to outside of Fergus Falls."
 
There is no fund raising needed and all participants have to do is 1) Sign up for the race of their choice, 2) Contact the lead for the awareness group they would like to join, and 3) Show up and participate.
 
Here is a list of the groups available and the contact information for each group.

Spartans to Play Ball in Jackson
After playing nine games over a six day span in Florida in early March and a double header in the Metrodome in mid-March, the Spartan baseball team has been biding their time hoping for a melt and a start to their outdoor season in Minnesota.  That hope is getting somewhat closer to reality as M State will travel to Jackson, Minnesota on Saturday and Sunday to play four games.
 
M State will play Western Wisconsin Tech twice on Saturday with games slated for 4:00pm and 6:00pm.  They will then play Rainy River in a Sunday double header at 11:00am and 1:00pm.
 
The Spartans are scheduled top play a pair of games at Jack Williams Stadium in Fargo, North Dakota on Thursday, April 11 and then to play their first two home games in Fergus Falls on Saturday, April 13 against Southern Division rival Ridgewater.
