The Husky Softball team is staying hot with a solid year, reaching a 22-15 record as they near the end of the season. The Huskies have won seven of their last eight games and currently hold a 7-3-conference record.
The team is coming off sweeps of University of Minnesota Crookston and the University of Sioux Falls, both series being played at the Husky Dome.
SCSU senior catcher Mikayla Hogan was named the NSIC Softball Player of the Week on April 8. Hogan is batting .335 with 10 home runs and a .669 slugging percentage. She leads the team in hits, RBI’s, home runs and doubles.
Hundreds of Husky Hockey supporters gathered for the viewing of the Frozen Four game on Thursday evening in the Atwood Ballroom.
“It’s a great way for us to get together with friends and cheer on the Husky hockey team,” said SCSU student Sarah Rodelius.
There was free food from the House of Pizza, chicken wings, cracker jacks, and beverages provided by Pepsi. Free prizes were given away to those who attended, everything from t-shirts to $50 gift cards.
Fans of all ages lined up in Atwood hours before the doors even opened, and prizes were given out to the loyal hundreds that showed up so early.
The SCSU Husky baseball team is surging this season, putting up a 21-2 record through April 8. The team is currently on a 14-game winning streak with sweeps over University of Sioux Falls, Minot State University, and University of Minnesota Crookston.
The Huskies are 10-0 in the NSIC, which is ranked at the top in the conference. SCSU is ranked fourth in NCBWA poll and fifth in the National DII Baseball News Poll.
Part of the reason for such great success is their pitching. The Huskies currently lead the NCAA DII ranks with a 1.40 ERA. Scott Lieser leads the team with 7 wins followed by Kyle Fischer’s 6 wins.
As the Atwood Ballroom continued to fill, the Husky men’s hockey team took the stage before heading to the airport and their eventual destination — Pittsburgh and the Frozen Four.
The Husky Sports Band and the Cheer Team set the tone for the crowd, which was buzzing with anticipation for a moment never before seen at SCSU. Both the band and the Cheer Team will accompany the hockey team to their first ever Frozen Four appearance.
Cheers of celebration rang through the otherwise empty St. Cloud Regional Airport on Sunday for one reason — the SCSU men’s hockey team is Frozen Four-bound.
The Huskies were welcomed home late Sunday night by a crowd of close to 200 loyal fans, excited to show their appreciation for a team which continues to do things no other SCSU men’s hockey team has done.
“I’ve been waiting for this for 21 years,” said Ryan Allex, SCSU student and member of the Dog Pound.
Senior forward Theo Rothstein will miss the rest of the season with a torn ACL and meniscus according to head coach Kevin Schlagel.
“Theo visited the doctor twice, and it has been confirmed that he has a torn ACL and meniscus,” Schalgel said in an interview over the phone Wednesday afternoon. “He will have surgery next Tuesday and he will face a six to nine month recovery period.”
Rothstein is leading the Huskies in scoring this season, averaging 17 PPG. He also leads the team in steals with 40 on the season.
