Pirates of the Week are submitted by the coaches. See Wednesday's Times for color photos of the Pirates.

Alex Boone - Boys' Basketball
Head coach Greg Garmen says, “‘Booner,’ as he is called, has put together a few nice games and has really stepped up his play. He had a few sequences in the last two games in which he was  all over the place making things happen, hitting shots, defending, rebounding, diving for loose balls...he received an ‘A’ for effort...”

Kenzie Klatt - Girls' Basketball
Head coach Lon Boike says, “McKenzie, a sophomore, has been playing very good basketball. She is seeing the court very well and has made some great passes for assists. In addition, Kenzie has been shooting the basketball from three-point range very well! We look forward to her continued good play as we near the playoffs!”

Luke Edlund - Wrestling
Head coach Chad Hitchen says, “Luke is sophomore and has had a great week of wrestling going 5-2 and placing second in the Larimore tournament. Luke is a team player for this year's squad, many times I have asked him to go up a weight class to help the team and does it without any hesitation. Many times he is giving up 15 to 20 pounds!  Luke will do very well as the year draws near.”

Leah Trostad - Girls' Hockey
Assistant coach Jaclyn Martin says, “Leah is a freshman for the Pirates this year. She had a great game Tuesday, hustling to the puck, winning battles and never giving up. Leah has great speed and stick-handling ability. She is also one of our best backcheckers. Leah will be one of those players that can make a huge impact in the postseason if she keeps working as hard as she has been.”

John Oien & Mikey Hajostek - Boys' Hockey
Head coach Jon Bittner says, “Johnny plays the game of hockey with a lot of desire and passion. His hard work on the ice is infectious with his teammates. He is a quiet leader in the locker room and is developing his game with his hard work and doing things the right way.

“Mikey is a rock on defense for our JV team. He attends both JV and varsity practices, works hard at his game and is developing as a player in this his sophomore year. Mikey is a tireless soldier who also does things the right way in and out of the locker room and ice rink.”
