SCSU Splits with Top Ranked Gophers

SCSU Splits with Top Ranked Gophers

 The State of Hockey features a lot of great rivalries but this weekend may have featured the best of them all. St. Cloud State and Minnesota skated to a split this weekend with the home team winning both matchups. 

Friday featured the best crowd of the year at the National Hockey Center as there was not a seat to be had when the puck dropped at 7:37. It took alomst 15 minutes for the first goal to be scored but when Jonny Brodzinski delivered a perfect pass to Kalle Kossila the scoring opened up for the Huskies. The first period ended with a David Morley rebound goal to push the Huskies lead to 2-0 at the end of the first period and the Huskies would never look back. SCSU got goals from Jonny Brodzinski and Joey Benik to close out the 4-1 win over the top ranked Gophers. 

Saturday was a different story as Minnesota came out and played much better at Mariucci Arena in Minneapolis. The first period featured the Gophers dominating SCSU in the shots department but the game was still scoreless after the first period. After both teams went back and forth in the game, overtime came and the Gophers took advantage by netting the game winning goal just a couple of minutes into overtime. 

The Huskies move to 3-3 on the young season and will play Minnesota-Duluth this weekend in a series at the National Hockey Center.

 Volley-FALL:

St. Cloud State Volleyball opened the season winning 3 of the 4 games at both the Rollins College Tournament and the NSIC Challenge. The 6-2 stretch included sweeps over Minot State (3-0) and the University of Minnesota-Crookston (3-0). The Huskies would then lose in their home opener against the University of Minnesota-Duluth before winning their 7th game of the season against the University of Sioux Falls on November 19th. Since this time, the Huskies have failed to win a single match and over the course of this 14 match losing streak, the Huskies have won only 5 sets (and haven’t forced a fifth set once). As if to illustrate how far the Huskies have plummeted over the course of the past month and a half, the last home stand featured losses to UM-Crookston (0-3), Minot State (0-3) and a University of Mary team that came into the match with a 3-18 record on the year (1-3).

Now why has the team fallen so far from where it began the season? There are many possible reasons, and perhaps no one right answer, but here are a few of the possibilities: Head Coach Michelle Blaeser has been put under investigation by the university for an, as of yet, unknown reason. St. Cloud State also plays in arguably the best conference in Division II Volleyball with perennial powerhouse opponents like 7-time National Champion Concordia University, the University of Minnesota-Duluth, Southwest Minnesota State University, Wayne State, and Augustana College (all of which have been ranked in the top 25 at some point this season). In addition to these reasons, the Huskies have experienced some key injuries over the course of the season. Most notably the injury to sophomore outside hitter Shannon Klink. This left the Huskies to floundering offensively as they tried to find a go-to attacker to assist senior outside hitter Kaitlin Doughty.

Now these aren’t the only factors that could have played a role in the losing streak, but they certainly haven’t helped matters. So how does the team prepare for the rest of the games this season? It certainly won’t be easy (as they will face Augustana, Wayne State, and Southwest Minnesota State University before the seasons end), but there may be some good news on that front. Shannon Klink did return to action on Tuesday against the University of Minnesota-Duluth Bulldogs. Though she only played in one set and didn’t manage any notable stats, it is a good sign to see Klink returning to the lineup. If she can make a full recovery and return to her natural rotation next season it will certainly give the Huskies a lift offensively and defensively (Klink has averaged 2.5 kills/set and 2.3 digs/set this season). Another bright spot is freshman outside hitter Isabella Nelson. Nelson has been given the bulk of the responsibility of filling in for Shannon Klink, and as time has gone on you can see she is getting more comfortable on the court and playing better each match. Lastly, the team is only graduating two seniors at the end of this season. On the downside, both seniors play a key role on the team. Kaitlin Doughty leads the team in kills and Erin Ohlemann has done a masterful job as the setter all season (she has been ranked in the top 10 in the NSIC all year). Over the offseason the Huskies will have to address these losses in order to continue to progress toward contender ship in the NSIC.

One thing that needs to be improved is the defense. Coming into the weekend’s matchups against Augustana and #12 Wayne State, the Huskies are ranked 15th in the NSIC in opponents hitting percentage (.229), 14th in digs (14.6/set), and 14th in blocks (1.63/set). They will need to find replacements at the setter position and a consistent outside hitter to go along with Shannon Klink for next year. And finally, they need to regain the staffing stability that they have had over the past few years before the investigation of Coach Blaeser.

The Huskies will next be in action against Augustana College on Halloween night at 7pm in Halenbeck Hall and against #12 Wayne State College on November 1st at 4pm. The games will be on the KVSC Sports Stream on a tape-delayed basis next week.

Men's Basketball Offseason Review

Men's Basketball Offseason Review

Coming off of back-to-back 20-8 seasons that included post-season victories over USF in 2014 and Concordia in 2013, the Husky Men’s basketball program has certainly got a lot to prove in 2015. However, these expectations don’t come without uncertainty. Redshirt Sophomore Seth Mortag tore his ACL and will be lost for the season. He averaged just less than 4 points and 2 rebounds in 22 games for the Huskies last season. 8 new players have been added since last season and are still working on mastering the offensive and defensive systems. And, finally, Matt Reimer is about to begin his own career as a head coach.

So what can we expect of the three newest additions to the Husky men’s basketball roster? When asked about the former St. Cloud Apollo multi-sport standout (and Division I Transfer from the University of Nebraska-Omaha) Simon Krych, Reimer was excited. “Simon brings us a big body in the post. At 6’8 240, he’s probably our strongest kid in the post. He gives us a big body to bang with and that’s something we were lacking last year. The combination of he and James should give us a pretty formidable defensive presence in the post. Offensively, I think that he’s a very skilled kid. He can step out to 15 or 17 feet and hit a shot. So I think that he’ll do some things there that will really help us.”

Donnell Cegers is a 6’5 forward from Milwaukee, Wisconsin. He transferred from Kishwaukee College over the offseason. At Kishwaukee, Cegers led the team in scoring (16.3ppg) and rebounds (8.6rpg). He shot 53.2% from the field, was named to the All-Arrowhead Conference 1st team, won the All-Arrowhead Conference MVP award, and earned a 3.45 GPA as a sophomore. On the court, Reimer is most excited about Donnell’s glass-eating potential, “Donnell brings some toughness and rebounding that we’re going to need. Losing Matt Craggs last year, who was our best rebounder (hurt us). I think Donnell has the potential to be a guy who’s going to go out there and rebound the ball very well.”

Eddie Alcantara is a 6’4 junior guard from Chicago Hales Franciscan high school. He helped Hales to win the 2A State Championship in Illinois before going on to play at Blinn College. Reimer, like many of Alcantara’s coaches before him, spoke highly of his attitude, “Eddie brings a lot of energy. He’s always upbeat. He plays extremely hard and is a very good athlete. I think that as he gets comfortable with the system and the people he’s playing with, he’s just going to get better and better every day.”

With so many new players joining the system, veteran leadership and production becomes all the more important. Reimer was proud to note that they all spent a lot of time in the gym during the offseason. Here are some of the things to keep an eye on while watching returning stars like Kevin Levandoski, Jordan Poydras, and James Fort: “I think Jordan understands that he needs to be a better defender. He can use his athleticism to create some turnovers for us. I think Kevin knows that he needs to be more consistent with his perimeter shot and be a leader both on and off the court. Connor is trying to be more aggressive, attacking the basket off the bounce. We need him to do that because he’s a great free throw shooter and we need to get him to the foul line. I think that James knows that he needs to be more consistent down in the post area. He can’t have one game of 16 points and 10 rebounds and then the next game have 2 points and 2 rebounds and be in foul trouble. I think that all four of those guys know that they have a lot to prove. We’ve had two good years but I wouldn’t call them great years because we haven’t gotten into the NCAA’s like we’re accustomed to. I think those guys want to end that streak and get back into the playoffs in a big way.”

When asked about the expectations for the upcoming season, Reimer was hopeful, “With all of the new guys and with me being a head coach there’s a lot of uncertainty. We can all be really confident, but until we actually go out there and get something done, we’re just talking right now. I think we have the chance to compete with anybody that we play. Now will we be consistent enough and stay away from injuries? Ultimately that’s what will determine how successful we are at the end of the day. Are we going to be consistent? Are we going to be tough? And are we going to stay away from injuries? If we can do those three things, then I’m not afraid to play anybody.” The Huskies open the season with an exhibition game on November 7th, at Michigan State University and then go on the road for two games in Las Vegas that will have Regional implications. They return to Halenbeck Hall for the home-opener on November 21st at 7 p.m.

 Entering the 2014-15 Men's Hockey campaign, St. Cloud State is facing a ton of expectations. Those expectations were partially answered against Trinity Western on Saturday night as the Huskies dominated in the exhibition contest. 

The Huskies skated evenly with the Spartans in the first period until Joe Rehkamp scored the first of his two goals on the night. The second and third periods featured six other Huskies getting in the scoring column including Jimmy Murray, Garrett Milan, and freshman Patrick Russell. The Huskies eventually went on to grab the exhibition victory 8-0. 

SCSU will face Colgate in a weekend series on Friday and Saturday at the National Hockey Center this weekend.

Husky Grapplers Back To The Grind For Another Season On The Mat

The St. Cloud State University wrestling team is ready for yet another season under the lights of Halenbeck Hall as the Black and Red Classic is slated for November 6.

However, the team has been going after the weights and constantly drilling since school began in September.

19 new faces walked into the wrestling room this September with goals of improving last year's 6th place finish at the National Championships last March. The finish is the lowest Head Coach Steve Costanzo and his crew have seen on the national stage since placing 7th in 2010.

Falling short of the coveted 1st place accolade has not only sparked returning wrestlers but new faces also. Tim Prescott, a JUCO transfer from Neosho County Community College describes the reasons why he picked St. Cloud and how his goals match the Huskies way of wrestling.

Ending his career as a Husky this year will be senior captain and Missouri native Josh Howk. Howk has been an asset to the dual team the last couple of years but has much more planned for his last year on the mat as he tells Broadcast/Social Media Coordinator of Husky Wrestling John O. Peterson.

The Huskies will start off the regular slate November 8 as they travel to the Harold Nichols/Cyclone Open in Ames, Iowa. The annual Black and Red scrimmage dual will be two days before in Halenbeck Hall.

All of the duals will be broadcasted live on the KVSC Sports Stream.

Husky Baseball Adds Two Transfers

Although the cold air is on it's way, St. Cloud State baseball is still striving to return to the top of the NSIC, and the two transfers that will start with the Huskies in 2015 may go a long way to making the Huskies a major threat in the conference. 

SCSU Baseball coach Pat Dolan reached all the way to the Big 10 conference to grab Beau Fandel. Fandel is a catcher who redshirted for the Cornhuskers in 2014 and is also a native of Forest Lake, MN. 

Coach Dolan was also able to reel in Logan Swann to suit up for the red and black of the Huskies next season. Swann played his 2014 campaign for North Dakota State and is a native of Redwood Falls, MN. 

Click here to listen to Coach Dolan talk to KVSC's Ted Leroux about the new transfers as well as Huskies in the Northwoods League and what has been happening in the offseason for Husky baseball.

SCSU Introduces New Secondary Logo

St. Cloud State unveiled a new secondary athletics logo Monday, June 9 at the Famous Dave's Huskies Sportstacular fundraiser.

The announcement ends an in-depth process that started in December. Joe Bosack and David Haney of Joe Bosack & Co., came to campus and gathered input from groups including SCSU students, faculty and staff. A survey was released that provided two choices of potential secondary logos.

SCSU Athletic Media Relations says the new look of the Husky will maintain a visual connection to the global/institutional "St. C" ligature. It replaces the Husky head logo that has existed since the 1999-2000 school year.

The new uniforms will have St. Cloud State or Huskies in a custom font created specifically for the athletic department and will be phased in as part of the uniform replacement process.

This new logo will be used in combination with the primary StC logo. Apparel with the new design will be phased in through the summer. St. Cloud State athletics urges people to use the hashtag #BHuskiesProud to keep tabs on when and where the apparel will be available. 

Many different depictions of the Husky have been used at SCSU over the years, see the history here.
