Aleece Durbin - Sr. OH
“She is one of our seniors that is stepping up. She has done a great job with her leadership role on and off the court. The last few matches, she has really shown heart, grit and tenacity and brought the team together as a whole.” - Head Coach Ashley Stopa
Logan Wardner - Jr. GK
"He’s had solid performances in games and has helped us keep it close, if not ahead in all games so far. He’s smart with the ball and gets it out to the midfielders quickly so we can get a counterattack going."- Head Coach Don Cox
Thea Oman - Jr.
"Thea is one of our captains and leaders on the team. She is a driven and hard working person which shows with her success in the water. Thea had a great meet on Thursday in Thief River Falls finishing 1st in all four of her events and having great times in both her 200 freestyle and her 50 free. Thea is a very goal driven athlete and works herself at every practice, challenging herself to be the best competitor she can be. She is also a person that is team driven, she works hard to ensure that our team is working together, getting along and having fun. She leads by example and supports everyone on the team." - Head Coach Marley Melbye
Ally Tiedemann - Sr. 1st Singles
"Ally is a senior who is playing in her 6th year of varsity tennis. Ally is 10-2 this year playing the number one spot in our lineup, she is also one of the top players in the section. Ally works hard in the off season and during the season. She is one of our captains and team leaders. Ally will be one of the key players for our team during the season and postseason." - Head Coach Mike Geffre
Bailey Folkers - Sr. F
"Senior, captain has had a rock solid start to the season. She scored two goals against Mesabi East in our 3-0 win at home. In our two away games she has played in a variety of positions. She is a hard worker at practice and games. Folkers is field smart, aggressive and poised at just the right time to leave a memorable impact. We love her leadership and positive, go-getter attitude." - Head Coach Sarah Reese
Colton Wieland - Sr. RB/LB
