HS Sports Year in Review


Mon, Jun 29th, 2015
Posted in All Sports

The 2014-2015 high school sports season is over. Another group of seniors moves on to the next big stage of their lives. Many left behind major sports fingerprints. Rushford-Peterson had its champions. Fillmore Central had its best overall sports season in some time, maybe ever. Chatfield couldn’t replicate their amazing 2013-2014 sports season, but Gopher teams were perpetually ranked and they won a lot of games. Lanesboro, Houston, Mabel-Canton, and Kingsland all had their moments. For the six ‘original’ county schools covered by the Journal’s sports (save Houston), it’s the end of an era. Every graduate’s four-year high school career was fully covered under the FCJ Sports umbrella. It’s the Journal’s first fully covered graduating class. It’ll be the only ‘first’ graduating class. The Journal says goodbye to a number of special athletes who spent a ton of time in the limelight.

Tro-Champions

In Rushford and Peterson, the year was, as always, chiefly about basketball. The banner is ordered. It’ll be big and say ‘State Champions’. Led by the ACC-connection of guards Alex Vix, Cole Kingsley, and Charlie Krambeer, and of course, Mr. Thomas Vix and his assistants, R-P boys basketball brought home the county’s only team state title of the year. Winning a school record 32 games and losing just once, they brought home all the hardware they could, the TRC-East championship, the 1A East championship, the 1A championship, and the state Class A championship, R-P’s third basketball state title. The ACC era ends where many thought it would, it ends fittingly; on top. The squad will go down as one of the best, if not the best Trojan groups, ever. Krambeer went over 1,000 career points and earned a Third Team All-State designation. He and Vix were each two-time All-Conference. Kingsley was three-time All-Conference and got the honor of playing in the post-season All-Star series. That trio was a part of an amazing four-year run. Trojan backers then watched basketball player Noah Carlson run his sophomore season state title count to three in the spring. Carlson leapt his way to a pair of state track and field titles in the Long Jump and Triple Jump. Basketball teammate Matt Culhane took second in the Discus while Ashley Agrimson finished fifth in the Long Jump. Girls track was one of the top teams in the TRC. On the links, Krambeer ran his career state participation total to five with a second straight golf qu .....
