Senior High in fourth
BEMIDJI - East Grand Forks Senior High’s Nate Deziel shot a 79 to lead the Green Wave on Monday in the first day of the Section 8AA tournament at the Bemidji Town and Country Club.
Bauer Brown shot an 82 for the Wave.
“It was misty, cold and windy; not a great day,” said Senior High coach Jay Frydenlund. “And it was on a tough course. It was more or less a survival.
“Both Nate and Bauer golfed steady enough to give themselves a shot tomorrow.”
The tournament wraps up today.
The Roseau Athletic Hall of Fame Committee has announced its 2016 inductees.
This year’s group includes 1968 U.S. Olympian Larry Stordahl; Sue Roadfeldt, who played volleyball at Columbia University; Norb Pastir, a longtime Roseau baseball coach; the late Bruce Olson, who led Roseau to a state high school hockey championship in 1999; and Dan Fabian, a former Roseau track coach who led the 1999 Rams girls team to a state title.
Stordahl was a three-sport (football, hockey and baseball) athlete at Roseau High School. He later played college hockey at the University of Minnesota, and in three World Tournaments with the U.S. National Hockey team.
Roadfeldt had a four-year volleyball career at Columbia. She twice was named to the All-Ivy League conference volleyball honors squad, and was one of sixteen volleyball players named to the Ivy League Silver Anniversary Honor Roll (recognizing 25 years of women’s athletics in that conference).
Pastir was the Topps/US Baseball Federation Minnesota Amateur Baseball Coach of the Year in 1990, and was inducted in the Minnesota High School Baseball Coaches Association Hall of Fame in 2008.
Olson played college hockey at Minnesota-Duluth and later was the head women’s hockey coach at both UND and Bemidji State University.
Fabian coached track and field and cross country at Roseau for 35 years. His 1999 state title team also will be inducted into the hall of fame.
Clarke, Evers honored
The Big Sky Conference announced its 2015-16 Scholar Athlete Award winners Monday, including UND’s Jimmy Evers and Lauren Clarke.
The league honors a male and female student-athlete from each league institution. The award winners were selected by their respective institutions based upon athletic and academic performance during the 2015-16 school year.
As a senior, Clarke became just the fifth UND volleyball player to garner CoSIDA Academic All-America honors when she was named to the third team. She completed her undergraduate degree in chemical engineering this past May.
The Naperville, Ill., native played in 133 career matches for North Dakota and registered 1,626 career digs, which is the third-highest total in program history. This past season, Clarke finished with 304 digs and had 14 double-digit dig efforts during UND's 21-win campaign.
Evers finished his degree in physics this past May and will start medical school at UND in the fall.
This past season, Evers advanced to the NCAA Division I Outdoor West Preliminaries in the 110-meter hurdles. He took third place at the Big Sky Championship, earning all-conference honors after tying a 16-year old school record with a time of 14.27. During the indoor season, Evers broke the 60-meter hurdle school record with a time of 8.11 seconds and took second at the Big Sky Championship.
To qualify for the Big Sky Scholar Athlete Award, a student-athlete must have a minimum cumulative grade point average of 3.2 (on a 4.0 scale), be a member of the graduating class and/or have completed their last year of intercollegiate athletic eligibility, have completed at least two years of intercollegiate competition at the institution, and be a letterwinner.
