Former Wolverine Volkmann Headlines Bemidji State Volleyball Awards

Courtney Volkmann (S, Jr., Wadena, Minn.), Jessica Yost (OH, Fr., Bemidji, Minn.), Kayla DeJong (DS, So., Jefferson, Wis.) and Molly Monahan (OH, So., Hutchinson, Minn.) took home top individual honors as the Bemidji State University volleyball program handed out team awards during its annual alumni weekend, March 21-23. All four players are set to return for the Beavers this fall.

Volkmann and Yost were named the team’s Co-Offensive Player of the Year. Volkmann set career highs in assists (879) and kills (91). She also entered the top 10 all-time at Bemidji State in assists. Volkmann currently sits in tenth place with 1,792 assists and needs just 14 assists to tie former teammate Jessi-Beth McCannell for ninth place.

Yost was the first freshman to lead the Beavers in kills (341) since 2007 when Nicole Olson (294) led the squad. The Bemidji, Minn. native was a two-time Beaver Pride Athlete of the Week in 2013 and led BSU in kills in 22 of 28 matches this season. Yost was also third on the team in digs (214) and blocks (32).

DeJong garnered Defensive Player of the Year accolades to cap off her first season as BSU’s primary libero. DeJong led the Beavers with 407 digs, which averages to 3.95 digs per set. The sophomore also posted a career-high 30 digs versus Quincy Sept. 13. It was the first 30-dig performance since Brie Groskretuz posted 31 digs against Northern State University in 2010. The Jefferson, Wis. native was also second on the team in assists (50) and service aces (22).

Monahan rounded out the honors as the sophomore outside hitter took home the team’s Most Improved Player Award. The Hutchinson, Minn. native worked her way into the starting lineup six times in 2014. Monahan set career highs in all major categories and produced a career-high nine kills against Minnesota State University, Mankato Oct. 4.

The Beavers finished the season with a 6-22 record, including a 2-18 mark in NSIC play. In 2013, Bemidji State did not have a senior on its roster, so it will return all 13 players for 2014.

Local Athletes To Help Lead M-State Softball

According to a press release from the Minnesota College Athletic Association, it appears that the M State-Fergus Falls Women’s Softball team will be counting on a couple players from Sebeka and Verndale this spring.

First-year player Teresa Moenkedick of Verndale is expected to be one of the Spartans’ top pitchers and position (SS) players, while fellow freshman Brett Brockpahler of Sebeka will be the other leading starting pitcher.

“Two potential starters that can throw strikes consistently,” said M State head coach Steve King, when asked to describe the pair. “(We) need weather cooperation to aid the young pitchers. The season playing out as scheduled will be a boost.

Three other first-year players from the area – Logan Redetzke (OF) and Donna Ehnert (2B/OF) both from Sebeka, along with Danielle Pratt (IF) of Eagle Valley are also on the Spartans’ roster this spring.

King stated that all of the freshman will need to adjust to the college game quickly.

The Spartans’ coach also said that the team’s infield will be solid and athletic from corner to corner, while the outfield will be inexperienced, but has good team speed to cover.

Lillquist, Toedter, Walters Earn MIAC Fall Academic All-Conference Honors

ST. PAUL, Minn. -- The Minnesota Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (MIAC) enjoyed a banner season on the field in the fall of 2013 and, with Thursday's announcement of the MIAC Fall 2013 Academic All-Conference Team, it was a record-setting season in the classroom as well. The conference recognized 334 student-athletes who met the combined academic and athletic qualifications, which is a new conference record.

The 334 honorees eclipses the previous record of 330, set just a year ago. The past two record-setting fall seasons have seen a significant surge in the number of honorees. Prior to 2012, the MIAC record was 311 (set in 2011). The fall sports recognized included men's and women's cross country, football, men's and women's golf, men's and women's soccer and volleyball.

Among the honorees are several athletes from this area, including: Jessica Lillquist of Sebeka, Hannah Toedter of Wadena and Paige Walters of Nevis.

Lillquist is a sophomore on the Augsburg College Women’s Volleyball team. Toedter is a senior member of the Women’s Cross Country team at Hamline University. Walters also attends Hamline, where she is a junior on the Piper’s volleyball team.

To earn Academic All-Conference honors, MIAC student-athletes must be a sophomore, junior or senior with a minimum cumulative grade point average (GPA) of 3.5 on a 4.0 scale while also meeting sport-specific athletic requirements, making the award a perfect blend of the balanced excellence championed by the MIAC and NCAA Division III.

Women's soccer led the way in the fall of 2013 with 69 MIAC Academic All-Conference honorees, barely edging out football, which had 67 student-athletes recognized. Women's cross country had 51 selections, men's soccer had 44, men's cross country had 41, volleyball had 39, women's golf had 15 and eight men's golfers were honored this fall. There were 174 women to receive the honor, and 160 men. Out of the 334 honorees, 208 are from Minnesota, four are international students and the other 122 are from other states within the U.S.

Athletically, student-athletes in team sports must compete in 50 percent of their team's regular-season varsity contests. The team sports eligible were football, volleyball, men's soccer and women's soccer. Cross country student-athletes were required to finish in the overall top 100 of their team's top seven at the 2013 MIAC Cross Country Championship. Golfers were required to be a member of the competing team at the 2013 MIAC Golf Championships to qualify athletically for the honor.

MIAC Academic All-Conference teams are announced twice annually, after the completion of both the fall and spring academic semesters.

Lueck Recognized BY MIAC

Mattie Lueck, a sophomore at the College of St. Benedict’s, was recognized when the 2013-14 Minnesota Intercollegiate Athletic Conference Women’s Basketball awards were announced recently.

Lueck, a Pequot Lakes graduate, received All-MIAC Honorable Mention following the season.

The rest of the conference awards are listed in the complete, post-season press release:

Saint Mary's star forward Courtney Euerle capped her tremendous senior season with the MIAC Player-of-the-Year award. Her head coach, Mandy Pearson, was voted the MIAC Coach-of-the-Year by her peers for the second-straight season for her role in the Cardinals' championship. And runner-up Concordia also claimed one of the MIAC's individual honors, as senior center Kelsey Walloch was named the conference's Sixth Player-of-the-Year.

In addition to the top individual honors, the MIAC also announced the MIAC All-Conference, All-Defensive, All-First-Year and All-Conference Honorable Mention teams, and it recognized the Women's Basketball All-MIAC Sportsmanship Team.

Euerle and Pearson were both honored largely for their roles in Saint Mary's milestone season. The Cardinals went 20-2 in conference play to capture the regular-season title, and finished as the runner-up in the MIAC Playoffs. They received an at-large bid to the NCAA Division III Tournament, and will enter the tourney with a 24-3 overall record. SMU will face UW-Oshkosh Friday in Oshkosh, Wis., to open national tournament play.

Euerle's all-around excellence in the paint led to her MIAC Player-of-the-Year honor, as well as her All-MIAC selection and third-straight All-Defensive Team honor. She was an All-Conference Honorable Mention selection a year ago. Euerle averaged 13.4 points, 7.4 rebounds and 2.1 assists per game while shooting 50.3 percent from the floor and 72.8 percent from the free-throw line in overall games.

In conference play, she led Saint Mary's to the MIAC title while averaging 12.9 points per game (ppg), 7.5 rebounds per game (rpg) while shooting 48.9 percent from the floor and 74.3 percent from the line. Euerle ranked third in the conference in field goals (116), fifth in three-throw percentage, sixth in defensive rebounds (124), seventh in blocked shots (27) and eighth in total rebounds (166) and rpg in MIAC contests.

Pearson received her second-straight Coach-of-the-Year award, also earned back-to-back MIAC Player-of-the-Year honors during her playing days at Concordia, and is believed to be the first to win both honors in consecutive seasons. This season, she coached the Cardinals to the conference title, as well as the MIAC Player-of-the-year, two All-Conference selections, two All-Defensive Team picks, two All-First-Year honorees and two All-Conference Honorable Mention selections.

In conference play, Saint Mary's has the league's third-best offense with an average of 68.0 ppg, and the second-ranked defense, as the Cardinals allowed just 57.5 ppg. SMU ranked No. 3 in the MIAC in field-goal percentage (41.3), 3-point percentage (34.8) and steals per game (8.9) and fourth in rebounds (39.8) and assists (13.5) per game and free-throw percentage (72.4).

Walloch was honored with the league's top award for reserves thanks to her contributions to another outstanding season for the Cobbers. Concordia finished 19-3 and tied for second in MIAC play, and 21-5 overall. The Cobbers received their second-straight at-large bid to the NCAA Tournament, where they will open against UW-Whitewater Friday at 5:30 p.m. in St. Paul, Minn., at a four-team regional hosted by MIAC rival St. Thomas.

This season, Walloch was a valuable contributor off the Concordia bench, averaging 7.0 points and 4.7 rebounds per game, while shooting 57.9 percent from the floor and an even 70 percent from the line. She was even better in MIAC play, averaging 7.4 points and 4.7 boards per game, with a 58.1 field goal percentage and a 71.4 mark from the line. She averaged 17.2 minutes per game in conference play, and her points per 40 minutes average was 17.1.

Euerle and St. Thomas' Kelly Brandenburg headlined the All-Defensive Team, with each earning their third-straight such honor. Parupsky was a repeat selection on the All-Defensive Team as well, and Euerle, Parupsky, Concordia's Alexandra Lippert and Saint Mary's Bridget Pethke all received both All-Conference and All-Defensive honors. Standout Bethel rookie Kalli Zimmerman was named to both the All-Conference and All-First-Year Teams for her breakout season.

The conference's top six teams - Saint Mary's, Concordia, St. Thomas, Bethel, St. Olaf and Gustavus - all had two players apiece named to the All-Conference team. Players from Augsburg, Hamline and Saint Benedict claimed the other three All-MIAC spots. The All-Conference team featured eight seniors, two juniors, four sophomores and one first-year player.

As part of a conference-wide sportsmanship initiative, the MIAC also announced the eighth annual All-MIAC Sportsmanship team for women's basketball. Members of the All-MIAC Sportsmanship team are selected by their coaches and teammates as individuals who demonstrate ideals of positive sportsmanship both on and off the field of competition.
