Miron Selected For USA Volleyball Collegiate National Team

North Dakota State freshman middle blocker Emily Miron was one of 36 athletes selected by USA Volleyball to participate in this summer's U.S. Collegiate National Team program.

The U.S. Collegiate National Team (CNT) program will train and compete in conjunction with the USA Volleyball Girls' Junior National Championships from June 22 to July 1 in Minneapolis.

"This is a great opportunity for Emily to continue her development as a player and to play against some of the best in the nation at this level," said NDSU head volleyball coach Kari Thompson.

Miron is a 2012 graduate of Wadena-Deer Creek High School. She was a three-time all-conference selection and two-time all-state performer at middle blocker for the Wolverines. W-DC went 33-0 and won the Minnesota state Class AA title with Miron as a sophomore in 2010. She was named to the all-tournament team at state as a junior in 2011. Emily was also a four-time all-conference performer in basketball, scoring over 1,500 career points and received All-State Honorable Mention in basketball following her senior season in 2012.

Miron is planning to major in pharmacy. She is the daughter of Richard and Jaquelyn Miron.

The CNT program will be instructed by lead coaches Mike Hebert and Bill Neville, who are both retired college head coaches. Both Hebert and Neville have extensive coaching experience not only at the collegiate level, but also at the international level. Neville has served as head coach for both the men's and women's U.S. National Teams as well as assistant on the U.S. Men's National Team. Hebert has contributed to the U.S. Women's National Team as an assistant coach.

For the third consecutive year, USA Volleyball will have its U.S. Collegiate National Team program (formerly known as U.S. Women's National A2 Team) represented at the USAV Girls' Junior National Championships.   After the training portion of the program, the 36 athletes will be divided into three equal teams which will compete in a round-robin event June 27-30. The round-robin event may add an international team to increase the field to four teams that would compete June 26-30. This program is considered a second tryout for the U.S. Women's National Team.

Athlete selections for the U.S. Collegiate National Team programs are determined based on evaluations from the U.S. Women's National Team open tryouts held Feb. 21-23 in Colorado Springs, Colo., or based on past performances within the CNT program.

Gallant Named Sub-Section 24 A.D. of the Year

Wadena-Deer Creek High School Activity Director Norm Gallant has been honored as the Minnesota Interscholastic Athletic Administrators Association’s (MnIAA) “Sub-Section 24 Athletic Director of the Year.”

Gallant received the prestigious award March 25 while attending the MnIAAA regional meeting in St. Cloud.  Gallant was nominated by his peers at the Region 6A meeting and was recognized at the MnIAA convention in St. Cloud.

“It was nice to be recognized by my peers,” said Gallant. “The other activity directors have been great to work with. I’ve learned a lot from them and really enjoy working with them.” 

Gallant is quick to credit his activities assistant, Mary Fix, for helping him run the Student Activities Department at WDC High School. She’s been with WDC since 1984 and brings a wealth experience to the department, Gallant said.

“This is a nice award that reflects on our whole department. I can’t give enough credit to Mary. She is the best person I could ask for to work with. She is great at what she does. She has been awesome for a long time in this role,” Gallant said.

Gallant is in his fourth year as Wadena-Deer Creek’s activities director after replacing Brian Silbernick, who accepted a principal position at Holdingford Schools. Gallant officially took over on June 15, 2010. Two days later, an EF4 tornado ripped through the WDC High School campus.  Gallant worked tirelessly that summer to ensure fall sports started on time. Then, that fall, Gallant, along with the rest of the school and the community, celebrated the sweet success of the volleyball team winning a state title. Over the next two years, high school sports played their games in the renovated elementary gymnasium while the new high school was built.

Since the new middle/high school opened the fall of 2012, Gallant has helped host two section wrestling tournaments, as well as a slew of sub-section and section volleyball, basketball and baseball tournament games.

Gallant currently serves as the head wrestling coach, a position he’s held for the past nine years. Before accepting the A.D. position, he was an elementary teacher for 11 years at WDC Elementary. He also coached football from 1998 to 2010, as well as baseball during the 2001-02 seasons at WDC.

WDC Superintendent Lee Westrum believes Gallant understands that a well-rounded education includes extracurricular activities as well as academic coursework.

“Norm Gallant is very deserving of the Sub-Section A.D. of the Year Award and though I have only worked with Norm for a year, it is easy to tell that he cares deeply about the student-athletes at Wadena-Deer Creek.”
