The MSUM wrestling team has excelled this year, but one teammate in particular stood out. Blake Bosch is a senior here at MSUM and he has been put on quite a few good matches this year at the NCAA Championships. He took 2nd place at the Championship this year and won the All-American Honors for the third year in a row. He will be graduate this year, and he leaves a great legacy as a student athlete at MSUM. He is leaving with the second best record in MSUM history (115-35).
The men’s basketball team also has a good season. This was their 4th consecutive 20+ win season, with a record of 24-6. In addition to the that streak, they won their fourth straight NSIC North Division Championship and a third straight NCAA Tournament!
The Women’s Basketball team had a great season this year finishing at 24-5. They won the NSIC Conference Tournament against Southwest State, but sadly lost the NCAA regionals to Central Missouri. This was the team’s first time making it to regionals since 2009. Dragon Women’s Basketball Head Coach, Carla Nelson, celebrated a feat this year. Coach Nelson achieved her 300th team win as a head college basketball coach. Both Men’s and Women’s Basketball had great seasons and we look forward to next year!
The Women’s tennis team is off to a good start with a record of 9-5. Their next match will be at Bemidji State on April 1st. Be sure to show your support by cheering them on!
Dragon Softball season started Tuesday the 28th with the first conference game against Northern State. The team fell to its opponents, but takes on Bemidji State this Saturday in an away game.
