Jurgella, Huskies Dominate on Senior Weekend

It seems that all the St. Cloud State baseball team does is win, and people are okay with that. The Huskies were in action over this past weekend as they took on the Minot State Beavers for Senior Weekend at Joe Faber Field. 

Reese Gregory took the mound for the Huskies on Saturday and delivered a gem with a complete game shutout featuring 10 strikeouts. He was able to get support from Zach Hoffman, who had 2 RBI, as well as Michael Jurgella, who also had 2 RBI. All the scoring was done within the first 5 innings as the Huskies cruise to a 6-0 win.

Game 2 on Saturday was all about the offense. The Husky bats were going and there were bases to be had. Seniors Eric Loxtercamp and Michael Jurgella led the way for the Huskies with Loxtercamp scoring 4 runs on 2 hits as well as Jurgella producing 6 RBI. Kevin Bolder was on the mound for the Huskies, and he answered with 4 strikeouts to go with 7 hits in 6 innings. Huskies take game 2, 11-1.

Game 1 on Sunday featured another gem of a pitching performance, this time by Sheldon Miks, who delivered a complete game shutout with 2 hits and 7 strikeouts. The story of the game was the Husky batters though, as they continually played mind games with Beavers pitcher Josh Larsen, who seemed uneasy whenever there was a runner on the bases. This allowed for erratic pitching that the Huskies were able to capitalize off of. Huskies cruise to an easy 7-0 win.

The final game of the weekend would be all about the seniors. Eric Loxtercamp and Mike Jurgella would each have 3 hits and score 2 runs to power a Husky offense that put up 12 runs. Karsen Forsman would contribute to the final out of the day for Minot as he would strike out Minot's Cameron Johnson. Huskies win big 12-2 and are now 41-3 on the season.

St. Cloud State Softball Wins 3 of 4 In Final Weekend Of Season; Face Sioux Falls In NSIC Tournament
Kelly Franks pitched a perfect game against the University of Mary with 17 strikeouts.

The St. Cloud State softball team came into the weekend eyeing an NSIC Tournament spot. To do so they needed to win three of their four games over the weekend.

The weekend started off strong with the Huskies picking up the 3-2 victory over Minot State. Jessica Goerger hit a homer in the 4th inning to give the Huskies the win. However, the Beavers responded with three home runs in the second game of the double-header to gain the 6-5 win.

The standings were still very tight coming into Sunday’s double-header, but the Huskies knew that if they could get a sweep over the University of Mary they would assure themselves a slot in the NSIC Tournament.

St. Cloud State overwhelmed the Marauders in game one of the double-header behind a perfect game thrown by Kelly Franks. Franks pitched in all seven innings and recorded 17 strikeouts without surrendering a hit. The run support was also strong for the Huskies and they coasted to the 7-0 shutout victory.

Game two picked up right where game one left off with the Huskies getting three hits in their first three at bats to set up Jessica Goerger’s grand slam. The Husky defense only allowed four hits by the Marauders as they completed their sweep with a 5-1 victory.

St. Cloud State is the 8th seed in the NSIC Tournament and will face the University of Sioux Falls on Thursday, April 30th. First pitch is set for 10 a.m. at Sherman Park in Sioux Falls, South Dakota.

SCSU Men's Basketball Signs Adam Heede-Andersen
SCSU men's basketball head coach Matt Reimer is finding success as a recruiter.

The St. Cloud State men’s basketball recruiting class size just doubled. Matt Reimer announced last week that the team has signed Adam Heede-Andersen of Denmark. Heede-Andersen is a 6’1 180 lbs. graduate of Stenhus Gymnasium in Denmark. He played three seasons at Stenhus and, as a three time co-captain, led his team to the final four in all three seasons.

He played a summer for the Global Squad Golden Dragons and did a post-graduate prep year at West Oaks Academy as a member of the Max My Game program in 2015.

He holds the Golden Dragon’s all-time record for assists in a game with 12 and has the 3rd most career assists (despite playing only one summer) with 96. He also led the team in steals with 25. Heede-Andersen averaged 4.0 assists and 1.0 steals per game with the Golden Dragons.

At West Oaks Academy (a prep school with a reputation for sending their students to D-I programs), Heede-Andersen became the starting point guard in the second half of the season and helped guide the team to a 40-9 overall record while playing a national schedule.

Adam’s award list includes the 2011 Vaerlfse Basketball Klub Male Person of the Year, best player in the ’96 age group of the U18 preseason tournament in Warszawa, Poland, and All-Star award at the Elite Jove summer camp in Solsona, Spain.

According to Reimer, Heede-Andersen’s international and prep school experience will help him to prepare for the competition in the NSIC.

Heede-Andersen joins St. Cloud Cathedral standout Brindley Theisen in the Huskies 2015-16 recruiting class.

SCSU Baseball Takes 3 of 4 from Mustangs

 The St. Cloud State Baseball team was in action over the weekend as they were Joe Faber Field looking to defend their #2 in the country ranking. They would play host to the Southwest Minnesota State Mustangs. The first game on Friday was one for the bats as there would be a combined 6 home runs in the game, including 2 by SCSU by Mike Jurgella and Kyle Leiser. The Mustangs would jump out to a quick 4-1 lead in the top of the 3rd inning, only to have the Huskies respond with 6 of their own in the bottom of the 4th. In the top of the 5th inning, the Mustangs would add 3 more runs to tie the game at 7. Both teams would get 2 runs in the 6th and in the top of the 7th and final inning, the Mustangs would score 4 runs off Nick Denny and the Huskies suffer just their third loss of the season, 13-9. 

In game 2 on Saturday, the tables turned as it had less fireworks, but still fireworks aplenty. SCSU would jump out to a quick 1-0 lead as Eric Loxtercamp would reach on an error. In the 3rd and 4th innings, Southwest would respond with 2 runs in each, but then the Husky bats came alive in the bottom of the 5th as they would score 5 and cruise to the win, 6-4, despite being outhit by Southwest. 

Sunday's affairs were nothing like Saturday's in the fact that the games were moved early due to the threat of inclimate weather. Someone may have wanted to tell Southwest that as the Huskies were able to pile up 33 hits and 16 runs including a grand slam by Eric Loxtercamp. Huskies pick up 2 more wins, 12-0 and 14-6 to improve to 33-3 on the season. 

Poydras, Cegers, and Krych No Longer On Men's Basketball Roster

Poydras, Cegers, and Krych No Longer On Men's Basketball Roster
Jordan Poydras is looking for a spot on a Division I roster next season.

The St. Cloud State men's basketball program could be in a heap of trouble come next season. Jordan Poydras, Donnell Cegers, and Simon Krych have all left the program.

Poydras is looking to test the waters in Division I college basketball. On April 6th Poydras posted the following quote on his twitter account: "Thank you St. Cloud for all the years of fun. I will be transferring but thank you for the memories and the love. I will never forget it."
 
Poydras led the Huskies in points, assists, steals, and minutes. He also placed third on the team in rebounding and was named to the Darktronics All-Central Region Second Team and the All-NSIC First Team. Though he doesn't know where exactly he will end up transferring, we wish him the best both athletically and beyond.
Donnell Cegers' departure was described by head coach Matt Reimer as a "mutual parting of ways" in his interview with Andy Rennecke for the St. Cloud Times. The junior transfer averaged 10.0 points per game on better than 55% shooting for the Huskies last season.
 
Simon Krych left to put more focus on his academics. He transferred to St. Cloud State from the University of Nebraska-Omaha last season. Though he didn't get a lot of playing time this season he did give a strong outing against Crossroads College (9 points in 14 minutes).
 
With key players like James Fort, Kevin Levandoski, and Connor Niehaus graduating on top of those leaving the program the Huskies will need to have a strong recruiting season to keep pace with the stiff competition in the NSIC.

Husky Baseball Continues to Roll
Michael Jurgella

The St. Cloud State Baseball team came into last weekend ranked 2nd in the nation with a record of 24-2. This weekend, they helped their case as one of the best teams in the nation. Friday, they hosted Wayne State College at Joe Faber Field for their home opener. Garrett Harrison pitched 6 innings, allowing 3 hits and earning 7 strikeouts. Michael Jurgella continued his strong season, belting a 3-run homerun and the Huskies would take game 1. In Game 2, Sheldon Miks would take the mound and would earn a complete game 2-hit shutout, striking out 8 batters. That, coupled with an Eric Loxtercamp home run would give the huskies a 5-0 win. 

Saturday, the bats came out hot for the Huskies as they would belt out 18 runs, including a Zak Hoffman homer and 3 runs a piece by him, Brandon Arnold and Karl Sorenson. Wayne State would get the first run of the game and their only run on a Nathan Ackerman home run. The finale on Saturday would prove to be much tougher as it was a back and forth game that ended up going to extra innings. The Huskies would take a 2-0 lead on a Zach Hoffman homerun, but Wayne would take the lead in the 7th. The Huskies would tie it in the 9th inning though as Kyle Lieser would score Jackson Goplen. The game would go into extra innings where Zach Hoffman would hit a double to score Micheal Jurgella. Huskies win in a walk off 4-3 to complete the weekend sweep.
