Zach Gabbard Is Critically Stable At U of M
According to our sister-site LakesAreaSports.com, Perham junior Zach Gabbard had to have emergency heart surgery this week while hospitalized at the University of Minnesota in Minneapolis.
 
The Gabbaard family posted the following message on their CaringBridge website Friday evening:
 
Early this morning (Friday), Zach was taken to the OR for emergency heart surgery. We were told by doctors the surgery could last up to 10 hours. After 3 hours his surgeon came out of the operating room to tell us he was finished. The surgery was successful and Zach's vital signs were stable. He is still critical and heavily sedated. As long as you keep praying, Zach will keep fighting.
 
The family posted an update Saturday evening:
 
Another day has passed which means it's time for another journal update. I wish I could type that Zach is 100% himself; unfortunately, I cannot. This past week has felt like 6 weeks. I can tell you that Zach has remained critically stable throughout today and it has been a day of rest for him (and us, somewhat). We are so thankful that he is still with us. We have seen very tiny baby steps towards his recovery, but know that the road ahead of us is very long.
 
Gabbard, 17, collapsed halfway into the first half of the Perham boys' basketball game game at Dilworth-Glyndon-Felton High School on Thursday, January 20.
 
After receiving emergency medical procedures, he was taken to Sanford Medical Center in Fargo, where open heart surgery was performed. Once stable, Zach was moved to the University of Minnesota on Sunday, January 23 for more specialized care.
 
A fund has been set up at United Community Bank in Perham to help his family defray medical costs.  Donations can be made at any UCB location in the name of the Zach Gabbard Fund.
 
They can also be sent to:
 
United Community Bank
155 Second Street SW
Perham, MN  56573
 
You may also purchase a t-shirt that you can wear to show your support to Zach and his family.  All proceeds raised from the sale of these t-shirts will help defray medical expenses incurred by the Gabbards.  For more information, go to One Clap For Zach.

Wadena High School Alum To Host Benefit Softball Camp
After seeing the destruction of the June 17 tornado that hit her hometown of Wadena, Jen Walter was inspired to organize a benefit softball camp and coaches' clinic for area student-athletes and coaches in February.
 
Walter is a successful head softball coach at the College of St. Scholastic-Duluth and a 1981 graduate of Wadena High School. Walter was a standout athlete while attending Wadena High School, competing in both softball and basketball.
 
Although her family moved away from Wadena while Walter was in college, she has maintained contact with friends and classmates.
 
"I have many fond memories of my time in Wadena," said Walter, who now lives in Duluth. After the June 17 tornado, Walter said she followed the recovery progress through the media. It wasn't until October before Walter traveled to Wadena to see the storm's destruction in Wadena. She was especially affected by the damage to the high school and County Stadium, both of which held special memories for Walter.
 
It was then, she said, that the idea of organizing a benefit softball camp and clinic started to take shape. She is also grateful to W-DC head softball coach, Craig Klawitter; W-DC activities director, Norm Gallant; and the W-DC Letter Winners Club for allowing Walter to organize this event to benefit student-athletes, coaches and Wadena-Deer Creek softball.
 
"“My hope is to share some of the softball knowledge I have gained over the years, along with my passion for the game, to help out a softball program that sowed the seeds for my future," said Walter.
 
 Walter is entering her 12th season as the head softball coach at the College of St. Scholastica. She has had eight winning seasons, including five with 30-plus victories. Last season, Walter became the second-fastest coach in College of St. Scholastica history to reach the 300-win milestone.
 
After graduating from WHS as a two-time All-State softball honoree, Walter attended Golden Valley Lutheran College in Minneapolis and Augustana (S.D.) College where she has continued her impressive career as a catcher.
 
This past summer, Walter was inducted into the Minnesota Fast Pitch Coaches’ Association Hall of Fame as a player.
 
Klawitter is looking forward to Walter sharing her softball expertise with student-athletes and coaches.
 
"Jen Walter was one of the first athletes I had the privilege to work with. Many of our local athletes have played for Jen at St. Scholastica," said Klawitter, who has coached girls’ softball for 31 years. "I have had the great pleasure to hear Jen at our Minnesota Fast Pitch Coaches clinic; she does an awesome job. We are so very lucky and grateful to her and her players for putting on this clinic."
 
The coaches' clinic will be held on Friday, February 18 from 6 to 9 p.m. in Wadena Memorial Auditorium.
 
The softball camp is open to area teams and players and will be held on Saturday, February 19 starting at 8:30 a.m. and concluding at 5 p.m. in the Wadena-Deer Creek Elementary Gym.
 
There will be a fee charged to attend the camp and coaches' clinic. Proceeds from the camp and clinic will go directly to the Wadena-Deer Creek girls' softball program to help replace equipment, uniforms and other items lost or damaged from the June 17, 2010 tornado.
 
The camp is being co-sponsored by the W-DC Letter Winners Club and Greg Larson Sports.
 
To download a registration form, go to the Wadena-Deer Creek School website at www.wdc2155.k12.mn.us or contact Jen Walter by email at jwalter@css.edu.
