Patience Yalartai takes One Last Jump

Patience Yalartai, a senior jumper at St. Cloud State University placed seventh against all competitors to become a NCAA Division II Indoor Track & Field All-American, in the triple jump for the first time in her collegiate career. “It’s a great feeling, I have reached the height of my profession as a Collegiate athlete, and it is absolutely an amazing feeling,” Yalartai said when asked how it felt to be an all American. “Really wanting it contributed to my success. I like my sport and I really wanted to reach that point of All-American status, so I kept at it until I reached it,” she said. When talking about her experience at nationals she commented: “I think my performance at Nationals was good compared to the other times at Nationals. In the past things just didn’t come together and I didn’t perform my best. Yet this time it was all… Keep Reading

Batter up: SCSU’s powerhouse on the diamond

When you think of the powerhouse programs at St. Cloud State University, wrestling and hockey are usually at the top of the list, but there is one squad that is often overlooked, even though they are perennially one of the nation’s best teams. The St. Cloud State baseball team are owners of 171 wins the past four seasons – they have averaged over 42 wins per season. This year has been no different. With the team off to a 18-6 start they are currently third in the NSIC. With one of the most powerful offenses in the nation, it is not hard to see why the team is able to reel off win after win, with a ten game winning streak that saw the Huskies outscore their opponents 144 to 35 runs in those ten games. Now in the midst of another seven game streak with the offense leading them… Keep Reading

Huskies cap off season with optimism

The St. Cloud State Men’s basketball team came into the season with high expectations.  What they got was a rollercoaster of a season. With many ups and downs, this team was one of the most exciting to watch. Senior guard Scottie Stone and sophomore Gage Davis led the Huskies to a winning record 19-14 and third place in the NSIC North on the season that came to a heartbreaking end with an 81-61 loss to Upper Iowa. There is no reason for this team to hang their heads. SCSU started out disappointing with a 0-4 start, but as soon as they came back from the 2016 Sports Anaheim Division II Tip Off Classic, that’s when the team took off – especially when playing on home court. The Huskies put up a 13-4 record when defending their home floor at Halenbeck Hall. Coach Matt Reimer was satisfied with the season overall… Keep Reading

Second place won’t slow down these stars

For the past two years, the Husky wrestling team has walked into the National Championships with the confidence of winners and left with evidence to prove it. This year, visions of a three-peat decorated the walls of the wrestling room and the mind of every wrestler who stepped into it. These lustful visions of victory soon turned mournful after the Huskies found themselves sitting in fifth place after day one, with four of the nine qualifiers not even winning a match. The thirst for victory kept the Huskies fighting on day two, but their struggles in day one prevented them from passing first place Norte Dame of Ohio. A second place finish is impressive, despite not being quite the ending the Huskies were hoping for. There were impressive performances by many Huskies, despite having no first or second place finishers. The team came back to St. Cloud with four All-Americans… Keep Reading

Huskies hockey set to focus on future

The St. Cloud State Men’s Hockey team had their season come to a close in the first round of NCHC playoffs on Saturday, March 11 against North Dakota in Grand Forks, N.D. The team ends their 2016-17 season with an overall record of 16-19-1, and it is the first time in four years the team has not made the NCAA tournament. The Huskies struggled this season on both Saturday game days and overtime losses. SCSU went 2-6-1 in overtime games this season and lost 11 Saturday games during the regular season. Despite setbacks, the team had some big wins throughout the season, defeating not only the top teams in the NCHC conference, but in the nation, including Denver, Minnesota Duluth, and Western Michigan. Throughout the year, glimpses of this team’s full potential appeared, but with such a young roster, many players needed time to adjust to college level play and… Keep Reading

All eyes on Alabama

With the regular season in the rearview mirror of the Husky Wrestling team, the destination of the national tournament is closer than ever. The Huskies finished the regular season with an overall record of 17-1 and a perfect 8-0 conference record. But before the Huskies can click their ticket to nationals in Birmingham, Alabama they have another city in their sights. The number one ranked Huskies headed into regionals in Moorhead, Minnesota this weekend with seven nationally ranked wrestlers, including 2016 125lb National Champion Brett Velasquez and number one ranked 285 lb Austin Goergen among others. After the first day of wrestling the red and black sat in first with 79.5 points, nearly a 20 point lead ahead of their nearest opponent, McKendree. Nine wrestlers advanced into the semifinals including the familiar names of Brett Velasquez, Larry Bomstad, Austin Goergen, and several others. The only loss on the day came… Keep Reading

Huskies Advance After Dominating Second Half

After losing two heart breakers to the top teams in the conference, Northern State and MSU-Moorhead, the Huskies knew they could compete with the best, refusing to hang their heads after the tough losses. “I’m old, but I’m good,” said senior Scottie Stone as he was preparing for Wednesday’s game. It looked dim for the Huskies as soon as the game tipped off. St. Cloud State shot a dull 36.7 percent from the field and nothing seemed to be going right. Driving to the bucket was a lost cause, turnovers, and holes in the defense all caused major problems for SCSU, also translated to the offensive side. “We got to stop letting our offense affect our defense,” said sophomore Gage Davis. Not to mention, the refereeing went from “ticky-tack” to a “let them play” style and then back to “ticky-tack.” But with the Huskies down seven with zero time on… Keep Reading
