Mabel-Canton Cougars

Head Coach: Lonnie Morken

2012 Record: 31-6 (SEC champions, Sub-Section 1A East runner’s-up)

Class Breakdown: 6 seniors, 4 juniors, 2 freshmen, 1 8th grader (13 total)

Seniors: Belle Sand (5’7” OH, reigning SEC POY, All-Conference, All-State HM), Carly McCabe (5’4” S, All-Conference), Lydia Geving (5’8” OH, All-Conference), Christine Lee (5’4” L), Sara Lind (6’0” OH), Kourtney Coyle (5’6” RH).

Other Key Returnees: Sara Vettleson-Trutza (5’9 Jr. OH), Coranda Vickerman (5’6” Fr S), Hannah Nolte (5’8” Jr. MH)

Comments from Coach Morken (relating to the possible impending battle/re-match of M-C and FC for the Sub-Section title): “We’re playing it day-by-day. We got a lot of kids returning. On paper, you would think that us and Fillmore Central are the favorites (in Sub-Section 1A), but everybody keeps forgetting about Goodhue. They’re super-athletic. The last few years they’ve been ravaged with injuries. They have not had a full team the last two years. And Wabasha will be good. They have three very good attackers. We have played them over the summer, are very familiar with them. But you would think, on paper, Fillmore Central and us, based on returning players, and past success (last season). But…we’re still playing it day-by-day, because our setter (Carly McCabe) has been gone all summer (for basic training). So a younger girl, Coranda Vickerman set all summer…and did phenomenal. She’ll be in the mix somewhere. Don’t know if we’ll change positions and Carly will step right back into the setter position when she comes back (imminently). We’ll see. It’s nice to have a little bit of depth and a little bit of competition. We feel that we should be fairly strong. We’re fairly experienced. Size will be an issue, no doubt about it. And then our depth. We have some younger kids coming up, but they’re certainly not gonna be ready at the start of the season.” As for the conference: “We start with LeRoy-Ostrander and Spring Grove, which is great, cause they’re probably the (other) top two teams.”
