Local Athletes To Help Lead Ridgewater Softball

According to a press release from the Minnesota College Athletic Association, it appears that the Ridgewater College Women’s Softball team will be counting on at least two players from the PheasantCountrySports.com coverage area.

Sophomore Brielle Hauge, a graduate of Kerkhoven-Murdock-Sunburg, will be one of the top returning position players this season. She is expected to catch and play some outfield. Hauge had an outstanding freshman year, batting .415. She was named to the All-Division 1st Team, was All-MCAC and was chosen for the All-Region 13 team in 2013.

Freshman McKenzie Long of Lac qui Parle Valley is also expected to challenge for a starting spot in the Warriors’ outfield.

In his team’s preseason preview, head coach Todd Thorstad said that the outfield will be “an athletic group that can cover a lot of ground.”

Ridgewater College will also have excellent depth on its pitching staff that features four pitchers that all have good control.

The Warriors’ infield is a solid group with arm strength and range.

Ridgewater College was 17-9 last season.

Bornhorst Back To Help Lead Ridgewater

Brandon Bornhorst of Madison should be among the top returning players for the Ridgewater College Men’s Baseball team this spring.

Bornhorst (6’2”/224) is projected to be one of the top pitchers for the Warriors. The second-year player was 2-2 on the hill last spring. Brandon is also expected to see playing time at third base again this season.

Another former Lac qui Parle Valley teammate, Colby Siegert, is also on the Ridgewater roster this spring, along with Bryan Shaw of Hancock.

According to Ridgewater College head coach Dennis Boe, the Warriors’ pitching staff will be made up of six solid starters plus a very good bullpen that should help improve on last year’s record.

Team defense should be much improved as the infield will have good depth at all positions. The outfielders’ average strength should be offset by good overall speed.

As for the Warriors’ offense, “(We) will have better quickness on the bases and improved power from top to bottom,” Boe stated.

For more information, go to the Minnesota College Athletic Association website (www.mcac-sports.com).

M State-Fergus Falls Counting On Former Tigers

A pair of former Morris Area/Chokio-Alberta baseball players are among the top players for M State-Fergus Falls this spring.

Jake Torgergson is projected to be one of the top pitchers for the Spartans, while outfielder Tanner Picht should be one of the top position players.

Outfield Tyler Henrichs of Morris Area/Chokio-Alberta and Luke Schwartz (P/OF) of Benson are also on the Spartans’ 2014 roster.

According to M State head coach Jarrod Asmus, the Spartans’ pitching staff will be young overall, however it will be a talented group to work with.

The outfield should be an athletic group of arms with range, while the infield will be young and inexperienced.

“The offense will be solid top to bottom as many new players with great talent have joined the Spartans program,” Asmus commented.

For more information, go to the Minnesota College Athletic Association website (www.mcac-sports.com).

Holleman Receives NSIC Academic Award

Bree Holleman of Hancock is a recipient of the Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference Myles Brand All-Academic with Distinction Award.

Holleman is currently a senior majoring in Elementary Education at Southwest Minnesota State University. She is a 5’8” guard on the Mustangs’ Women’s Basketball team.

According to the SMWU Athletic Department, Holleman played in 72 games in her career with 46 starts. Bree ranks eighth all-time at SMSU in 3-point field goals made (112), ranks seventh all-time in 3-point field goals attempted (312) and netted her 100th career 3-point field goal on Jan. 5, 2013, versus Upper Iowa.

As a junior in 2012-13, Holleman was named Academic All-NSIC. She appeared in 20 games, making 20 starts before missing the last nine games with an injury. Bree finished the season making 34 3-point field goals, averaged 10.6 points and 3.9 rebounds per game and scored a career-high 26 points versus Missouri Southern on (11/10/12).

During her sophomore season, Holleman was named Academic All-NSIC. She appeared in all 26 games, starting 25, and finished second on the team averaging 10 points and 3.8 rebounds per game. Bree also led the team with 47 3-point field goals, the 10th highest in single-season history, and dished out a team-high 54 assists.

Holleman also appeared in all 26 games during her freshman campaign in 2010-11, averaging 4.8 points per game.

Bree is the daughter of Mark and Jodi Holleman.

NSIC Commissioner Butch Raymond is proud to announce the fifth annual NSIC awards. The honor, named for the late NCAA President Dr. Myles Brand, is bestowed to senior NSIC student-athletes who have a cumulative grade point average of 3.75 or higher, are exhausting their eligibility and are on track to graduate. Each student-athlete will be recognized by the NSIC with a certificate of achievement and a wrist watch. Furthermore, each institution is highly encouraged to have these student-athletes be publicly recognized at a home athletic event. A total of 96 student-athletes from the NSIC's 16 institutions and two affiliated members will receive the award in its fifth year. "Dr. Brand, in his leadership role with the NCAA, always gave strong support to Division II and our dual emphasis on academics and athletics. The NSIC is proud to recognize and honor this elite group of student-athletes in Dr. Brand's honor," said Raymond. Dr. Myles N. Brand, visionary leader, educator and reformer, served as the President of the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) from 2003-2009. He passed away in September 2009 at the age of 67 after a battle with pancreatic cancer. Brand presided over passage of the most comprehensive academic reform package for intercollegiate athletics in recent history - a package that refocused the attention of student-athletes, coaches and administrators on the education of student-athletes. Brand also changed the national dialog on college sports to emphasize the educational value of athletics participation and the integration of intercollegiate athletics with the academic mission of higher education. His impact on Division II ran deep by implementing an identity campaign and a strategic-positioning platform tied to specific divisional attributes. He challenged Division II to continue its game-environment and community-engagement focus, and improve academic success rates.

The NSIC is a 16-team, 18-sport, NCAA Division II Conference with teams located in Iowa, Minnesota, Nebraska, North Dakota and South Dakota. 2014 NSIC Myles Brand All-Academic with Distinction Award Honorees
