Ruud Shatters School Scoring Record

Coming into a key SEC match-up between two of the three teams in the conference with winning records, Lanesboro (11-2, 13-6) and Mabel-Canton (10-3, 11-8), Kole Ruud needed 23 points to break Braden Hanson’s all-time Burro scoring record (1,430 points) set just two seasons ago. In true Ruud fashion, it took the scorer-extraordinaire less than a half to do so. The 6’0” senior did most of his work at the free throw. He hit a whopping 14 of 15 first half freebies. It was free throw ten that tied the mark, eleven that broke it. By halftime, Ruud already was close to his season average (27) with 26!

As for the game, it was close early, but M-C lost their leading scorer/playmaker, Justin Ward, to a recurring shoulder injury. Lanesboro led 27-23 at the time. By halftime, the Burros built a 44-35 lead. Fellow Lanesboro scoring stand-out, Luke Rogers, established himself in the post in the second half. The Cougars didn’t have an answer defensively for the terrific duo, nor could they keep up offensively. Lanesboro got the win 80-57.

Ruud was ridiculous in scoring 41 (16-18 FT’s, 10-16 FG’s, 5-7 three’s), a new personal best (he had 40 versus Lewiston-Altura last season). It took Ruud 73 games to get to 1,430, it took Hanson 102; a testament to Ruud’s (mostly) two-year scoring proficiency. Rogers finished with 18 (pts), 10 (rebs), and 4 (assists). For M-C, Hunter Johnson (17 pts, 6 rebs) and Noah Manning (17 pts, 6 rebs, 5 assists) did their best to keep up, to make up for Ward’s absence. It came down to shooting, and Lanesboro held all the edges, on three’s (6 of 14/43%; 2 of 15/13%), FG’s (25 of 49/51%; 22 of 58/38%), and FT’s (24 of 31/77%; 11 of 21/52%).

Rogers Tops 1,000

Career Points

Coming into the week of Monday the 3rd, Luke Rogers needed 34 points to join Ruud as having notched 1,000 for his career this season. After 18 versus M-C, Rogers needed 16 versus Glenville-Emmons to reach the ballyhooed milestone. The 6’2” senior G/F got it. He scored 13 in the first half, and then, with his second bucket of the second half (a rebound put-back), he was at 1,001. He finished with 19 and 8 rebounds. Of course, Ruud victimized the Wolverines to the tone of 27 (6 of 9 trifectas). The Burros took care of business with a 76-47 victory. Lanesboro then made it a perfect three for three on the week with a 62-45 win over Hope Lutheran. Ruud was Ruud (31 pts, 6-8 three’s, 11-18 FG’s). Garret Boggs chipped in 10 points and 5 rebounds. The Burros are now 14-2 in the SEC. They are 16-6 overall. They’ll take second in the league behind Spring Grove (17-0, 22-3).

Cougar Girls Avenge Guys

A few nights after the M-C boys fell to Lanesboro, the Cougar girls extracted a bit of revenge on the Burros. Early on, M-C got interior players Hannah Nolte and Sara Lind going. They scored the Coug’s first 12 points. Carly McCabe then got in on the act. She had 9 points and 8 rebounds in the first half. M-C led most of the stanza enroot to a 29-21 lead at the break.

In the second half, M-C’s leading scorer Lydia Geving started putting the ball in the bucket. Lanesboro never went away though. Olivia Haug, a 6’0” junior center, was always a physical interior scoring force (until fouls put her on the bench). M-C got the lead to double digits (37-27), only for the Burros to cut it to three (39-36). M-C immediately responded with an 11-0 run, to lead 50-36. Lanesboro then got as close as seven (53-46) inside two minutes.

M-C staved off Lanesboro’s best advances and prevailed 57-48. The game was about offensive options, and M-C had more. Geving (16 pts, 13 in the second half, 5 rebs, 4 stls), Lind (14 pts), Nolte (12 pts, 7 rebs), and McCabe (10 pts, 10 rebs, 5 assists, 4 stls) all reached double figures. Only Haug (15 pts, 11 rebs, 3 assists, 3 stls) did so for Lanesboro. Heather Boyum helped out (9 pts, 4 rebs, 3 assists).

LARP, FCLMC Square Off

A couple wrestling programs with similar records, L-A/R-P (10-12) and FCLMC (8-11), hooked up for each’s regular season finale. As could be expected, it was a competitive affair. The Wolves spotted the Screamin’ Eagles 106 and 113 (forfeits). Pins by Josh Doerr (120) and Sam Puetz (126), a 20-8 major decision by #7 in AA at 126 McCoy Tekautz (132), had LARP off to a 28-0 start. But the Wolves then won three in a row, 138 (forfeit), 145 (Andy Love 6-4 decision over Sam Riebel), and 152 (Gabe Decker 5-2 decision over Justin Grindland). One-sixty was double-forfeited. LARP’s Jackson Riebel (pin) won 170, only for FCLMC to run off three more victories, 182 (#1 Niko Anderson 15-5 MD), 195 (new #7 Monty Holm pin), and 220 (Walker Ward pin). Heading to heavyweight, LARP led 34-28. The Wolves had a chance at the tie, but S-Eagle senior Cale Stensgard squished those ideas with a pin at 285, giving his team the 40-28 win. The squads will head to the post-season, 8-seed LARP having a date with 9-seed Byron (for the right to take on #1 Kasson-Mantorville) in the Section 1AA. In Section 1A wrestling, 7-seed FCLMC will face 10-seed W-K (for a right to take on 2-seed Chatfield).

Hot Shots

With a couple dual meet wins, the #7 Chatfield Gopher wrestling team finishes the year undefeated in conference (8-0), as dominating 3-Rivers champions. They are 21-1 on the season, the 2-seed in Section 1A’s wrestling tourney (Kenyon-Wanamingo is the 1-seed). Chatfield’s third-ranked girls b-ball team tacked on a couple more wins, getting a season high 20 from senior Sidney Irish versus W-K. They are still undefeated (13-0, 16-0) heading to some ‘showdown’ games. Kendra Crawford had 20 in an R-P win over Cotter, then 15 and 11 steals in a victory over L-A. The wins moved the Lady Trojans’ records’ to 12-3, 16-3. Crawford has been in double figures every game.

The 5th-ranked R-P boys ripped off three more wins, everyone getting playing time, to move to 16-1, 21-1 on the season. They lead the 3-Rivers-South, as #8 Caledonia (15-2, 21-2) fell to P-E-M. Houston’s Abbey Loken had the game of her career (36 pts, 20 rebs) in a win over Hope Lutheran. FC’s girls gave 16-0 #5 in Class A Lyle/Pacelli a run for their money. The game was tied at the half, FC led by as many as nine in the second before falling 56-50. It was the Athletics’ closest game of the season, by far (80-54 versus Southland). M-C’s girls went 2-0 on the week, getting four in double figures each game. The Cougar Ladies are 10-3, 11-7; second place in the SEC East behind SG (14-0, 15-5). Lanesboro’s Olivia Haug played four games and had four double-doubles.
