BUFFALO HIGH SCHOOL - FEMALE ATHLETE OF THE YEAR

Montplaisir showcases all-around skills

By Rob LaPlante

Sports Editor

There were plenty of worthy candidates to choose from when selecting the 2017-18 Female Athlete of the Year at Buffalo High School.

Danika Tweten was a rare three-sport female athlete to compete with the boys. She was a shutdown defender in girls' soccer and lacrosse, but made most her headlines as the primary kicker the past two seasons on the football team. 

Future Gopher, Emily Hansen specialized in one sport, but produced a special season this past spring where she tied the state record with 16 home runs, and was recently named Ms. Softball, as the top player in the state.

Other D-I talents include: Alex Zeiss (Wisconsin) in diving; Kari Zumach (Creighton) for volleyball; Sarah Hudson (Villanova) and Morgan DeMarais (South Dakota State) are both softball recruits and Sydney Johnson (North Dakota State) in soccer.

"It seems to be more challenging each year to single out any particular athlete for this award," said BHS Activities Director Tom Bauman. "There are many hard working, deserving athletes at BHS that deserve recognition. We are so proud of all of them."

Emerging to the top of a talented senior class was another three-sport athlete, Amanda Montplaisir, who achieved the rare feat of qualifying for state in cross country, gymnastics and track.

Montplaisir excelled not only on the competition field, but the classroom as well. She made the A-honor roll all four quarters her senior season, and helped lead the gymnastics team the past two years as academic champions of Section 8AA.

"This award means a lot to me, especially considering the number of elite-level athletes in this graduating class," said Montplaisir, who takes great pride in being a multi-sport athlete.

"I remember last year when Autumn Senger was chosen, and the year before it was Rachel Bertram – both were well-rounded athletes, and I love that we are recognized for that," she said. "Rachel and I used to compete together on the same club gymnastics team, so it's cool to look back on that and realize how far we have come, excelling in our other sports as well."

Montplaisir not only is talented, but she's also a leader. She was voted team captain of all three sports she competed in her senior season.

She qualified for her third career individual state tourney last fall in cross country. She also qualified for her third career individual state tourney last winter in gymnastics, where she finished eighth in Class AA in all-around competition.

Last June, she qualified for her first-career state track meet, where she medaled in the 1600-meter run and 4x400 relay.

Montplaisir says each sport has brought its own special thrills, but she credits a lot of her success to coaches Dave Knutsen and Jill Hansen, who gave her an opportunity to succeed at a very young age.

 "I give a lot of credit to Jill and Dave for bringing me up in eighth grade to run on the varsity girls' cross country team," Montplaisir said. "My first cross country sections race was held at Buffalo Heights Golf Course, and I remember after a slightly disappointing performance telling one of my teammates that I wanted to make it to state the next season. Thinking about that now just shows how far a single goal can take someone. If it hadn't been for my coaches' decision to let me run with the older girls, I wouldn't have had that early exposure to high-level running, and I wouldn't have made a goal that five years later led me to not one, but seven state tournaments."

As years have passed, Montplaisir also credits today's younger athletes, who she says has motivated her to keep performing at the highest level.

"I have always looked up to my younger teammates. My greatest and probably my favorite competition, has always come from the younger girls," Montplaisir said. "I look up to all of my teammates, but especially Alexis O'Malley, Emily Kern, Erica O'Borsky, Lauren Feddema, and Madi Peters."

"In gymnastics, Madi and I would go back and forth all the time, whether it was getting a new skill or placing in a meet. Whenever she got an upgrade, I wanted to upgrade, and when I added a tenth of bonus points, all of a sudden she had another tenth of a bonus. It was so fun always having someone there to push me, and I am so excited to see what her next three years have in store for her," Montplaisir said. "On the running side of things, a team's lineup changes all the time. Erica and I ran well together in our first season of cross country and track, and props to her for always being an amazing competitor. Within the last year, I have been inspired by Alexis, Emily, and Lauren because of their desire and drive to succeed in what they love. Whether I was racing the 400-meter dash or a 5-kilometer race, I always had someone there to keep me accountable, and I am grateful for that. I look up to all of my coaches and I would like to thank them, along with my teammates, family, and friends for always believing in me and supporting me in all of my activities."

Ironically, two years ago it was Amanda's older brother, Matt, who was named the 2016 Male Athlete of the Year.

Matt will be a junior this fall at Gustavus Adolphus College in St. Peter, where he competes in both track and field, as well as football.

"I remember how cool it was when Matthew won this award two years ago," Amanda said. "He has always been a leader for me, and from what I have seen, his teams as well."

Amanda went on to say that she is nothing like her brother when it comes to leadership.

"In a way we're similar, but also very different in how we show our leadership," she said. "He is much more vocal than I am, and that is something I've always lacked. At practices, I was never the one to vocally lead warm-ups. Instead, I was able to lead by example and show what had to be done at practice to perform at a high level. I think our differences in personalities shows that anyone can be a leader, no matter their gender, what sport they play, or the level they are able to compete at."

Amanda will continue her education and running career about 15 miles south of her older brother when she attends Minnesota State University-Mankato in the fall. She will run both track and cross country, and plans on studying dietetics and sports medicine.

"It is humbling to know that in both of our classes, we were chosen for this award," Amanda said. "It is a very special and unique circumstance that we are both appreciative of."

 


LEGION BASEBALL

Post 270 finishes third in Central Lakes Classic

Brings leads offense in three wins

By Rob LaPlante

Sports Editor

Deuces were wild in three wins for the Buffalo Post 270 American Legion baseball team during last weekend's Central Lakes Classic in Brainerd.

A 9-8 victory over the Superior Reds (Wisc.) in Sunday's third-place game capped off a 3-2 weekend in the tournament for Buffalo.

Post 270 trailed Superior 8-6, but rallied to score three times in their final at-bat of the seventh inning. Nathan Buscher's hit by pitch with the bases loaded scored the winning run.

"The pitch barely brushed his uniform, but the home plate umpire said it hit him," said head coach Jack Strong. "I guess you take a win any way you can get it."

Buffalo's two losses in the tournament were 8-2 in last Friday's opening round of pool play to Apple Valley, and 5-3 to Brainerd in Sunday's semifinal round of bracket play.

Brainerd won the tournament championship with a 4-2 win in Sunday's title game against Apple Valley.

"We had one bad inning against Apple Valley where we didn't field the ball and things kind of folded from there," Strong said. "We had our chances against Brainerd, but couldn't get the big hits. We left too many runners on base, which cost us."

Buffalo's offense was on fire in two wins in pool play on Saturday.

They scored in every inning in an 11-1 victory in six innings over Brainerd's VFW team.

Christian Johnson allowed just two hits and struck out 10 in the victory. Buffalo led 1-0 after one inning, and tacked on two runs in each of the final five innings for the 10-run mercy rule win.

Luke Brings led the way offensively with two doubles and two RBI.

Later that day, Buffalo continued to put crooked numbers on the board in a 12-7 victory over Becker.

Buffalo scored two runs in the first, third, and fourth innings to build a 6-0 advantage. Becker spoiled the shutout bid with a run in the fourth inning off starting pitcher Micah Rassat, who was one of a few players called up from the Bison VFW team, who were idle this past weekend.

Both teams scored two runs in the sixth and four more in the seventh for the 12-7 final.

"We really wanted to give Rassat a complete game, but he just ran out of gas towards the end," Strong said.

With pitching at a premium, Buffalo catcher Jacob Strong took off his mask and recorded the final two outs to secure the win.

The tournament was extra special this past weekend for both Strong and Josh Fussy, who are teammates on the Central Lake College men's baseball team. They will be joined next season by former Bison teammate Bailey Erickson, who suffered his first loss of the season in Sunday's 5-3 loss to Brainerd.

"I think most teams ran out of pitching come Sunday," said Jack Strong, who pulled his ace to save his arm after tossing just 41 pitches in three scoreless innings in the opening-game loss to Apple Valley.

Tyler Brown allowed just one hit and one run in Sunday's win against Superior, but Michael Weber picked up the win, despite allowing seven runs over three innings. Only one of Weber's seven runs was earned, thanks to four Buffalo errors.

"We played two tourneys this summer and finished first in one (Alexandria Tournament) and third in another, so we have nothing to be ashamed of," Strong said. "The next two weeks will be a good test for us and a chance to get our pitching lined up for the playoffs."

BUFFALO HIGH SCHOOL - MALE ATHLETE OF THE YEAR

Scherber pins name onto impressive list

By Rob LaPlante

Sports Editor

Jacob Scherber's state runner-up at 195 pounds in last winter's Class 3A individual state wrestling tournament in St. Paul helped land him a heavyweight award this spring in Buffalo.

Announced in late June, Scherber is this year's recipient of the 2017-18 Male Athlete of the Year for Buffalo High School.

This award recognizes great achievements, in and out of the classroom, by a student-athlete who competed during their senior year.

Scherber was one of a number of top-senior athletes emerging from his class. Some of the other top candidates included: Ryan Kluver, a Division-I football recruit at South Dakota State. Parker Kabe qualified for his first-career state tournament last February in three different events in swimming. Ben Ruhr was a three-sport athlete in track and field, soccer and wrestling. 

Scherber is just one of the recent multi-talented male athletes to win the award.

Last year's winner, Nick Hanson, was a three-sport star in track and field, soccer and hockey. Matt Montplaisir was the winner in 2016, where he starred in track and field, football and basketball. Previous winners also include multi-sport athletes such as Jake Ramsey and Jason Senger.

"There are a lot of other great names on this list, and it's really special to know that mine will be added to it," Scherber said. "I was surrounded by so many amazing athletes in my time at BHS, so it's an honor to have been chosen. Getting an award like this is nice, because it shows that people recognize all the time and work I put in to make myself better."

Scherber's hard work and determination was displayed both on the field and off.

On the gridiron, he spent the past three seasons playing both as an offensive and defensive lineman. 

His biggest achievement in sports came this past winter when he landed on the second-place podium (195 pounds) at the Class 3A individual state wrestling tournament in St. Paul.

He's also been a regular fixture on either the A or B honor rolls throughout his high-school career.

"These student-athletes epitomize what this award is all about," said BHS Activities Director Tom Bauman.

The Scherber family has deep roots when it comes to wrestling. His father, Jason, owned a 94-16 career mark as a former wrestler at BHS. Jacob's younger brother, Ryan, is already one step ahead of his older brother after qualifying for his first-career state tournament this past March as a freshman.

Jacob first qualified for state during his sophomore season. He won his first-career match at state during his junior year. He didn't place either of those two years, but just making state his junior season was an achievement in itself. Just nine months prior to the 2017 state tournament he had reconstructive knee surgery for a torn ACL and meniscus.

Having experienced the injury was a mini blessing in disguise for Scherber.

"My injury was definitely a setback," he said. "But it taught me so much, and I know that I am a better person because of it."

Scherber's education and wrestling career will continue this fall when he attends St. John's University in Collegeville. He plans on pursuing a degree in biology.

"I'm excited to see where my future takes me," Scherber said.

While he looks forward to his future, the high school memories are something he says he will cherish a lifetime.

"One of the best things about BHS is all the amazing staff and coaches that put so much of their time into helping students grow and succeed," he said. "I've always been surrounded by people who lead by example and have given me a model of what it means to be a leader."

As for wrestling, he says he will miss the spotlight matches the most.

"One thing that I'm going to miss is being able to run out to the center of the wrestling mat at out home duals – with the spotlight hanging down, and all my teammates there supporting me," Scherber said. "It was really an amazing experience that will stay with me for a long time."

 

Homecoming

According to Bauman, work is in order to try and unite as many of the past winners – male and female, for a gathering on the field during their homecoming football game on Sept. 28 against Monticello.

 


AMATEUR BASEBALL

Bulldogs hand Maple Lake first loss

Vogt's arm, O'Donnell's bat leads Dogs to three wins in three days

By Rob LaPlante

Sports Editor

At least 2-3 freight trains can be heard steamrolling past Irish Stadium during Maple Lake Laker home baseball games.

On Monday night, a freight train from Buffalo was witnessed inside Irish Stadium, where the red-hot Bulldogs handed the Lakers a 6-1 defeat.

The Bulldogs benefited from six Maple Lake errors and smashed out 14 hits to hand Laker ace Mitch Wurm his first defeat (4-1) of the season.

The victory was Buffalo's third-straight, a streak that also included a 21-2 home win on June 28 over Maple Plain, and 15-6 road victory last Sunday at Litchfield.

The loss was the first time out of 15 league games that the Lakers have tasted defeat (14-1 North Star League, 15-4 overall). Buffalo improved to 9-4 in league play and 12-6-1 overall.

"Top to bottom in the North Star League is strong, so you know you're going to play somebody good most the time," said Carter Vogt, who improved to 3-2 with a complete-game win. "When you play a team like this, who is in first place and undefeated, you like to think you have a little extra motivation and bring a little more to the table."

Vogt did just that. He escaped a first-inning jam without allowing a run, despite two defensive errors and one Maple Lake hit.

The score remained 0-0 until Luke Merz cracked an RBI double with one out in the fourth. Jason Senger made it 2-0 when Laker shortstop Brock Fobbe dropped a fly ball in short leftfield.

Fobbe struggled big-time on defense as a replacement for starting shortstop Luke Fobbe, who was out ill. Brock committed four of his team's six total errors.

"Defense has been huge for us all season," said Wurm, who wiggled out of a bases-loaded jam in the sixth inning to keep the score 2-0. "Our shortstop was sick, but we have to have younger guys step up, because when it comes down to crunch time, you need guys stepping up."

Buffalo doubled its lead in the top of the seventh when Brett Renshaw made it 3-0 on sacrifice fly that scored Jake Duske. JD O'Donnell made it 4-0 with an RBI double that scored Colton Haight.

"Our middle of the order, when they get going, it's fun to watch," said Bulldog manager Joe Pokorney. "JD has been on fire and Renshaw is back where he needs to be. Right now, we're getting good at bats all the way through the lineup."

Pinch-hitter Tommy Eckstein singled to lead off the eighth for Buffalo. Pinch-runner Hunter Brings would score when Senger ended the night for Wurm with an RBI triple to make it 5-0. Buffalo added a sixth run in the ninth on an RBI single by Corey Braun.

O'Donnell and Vega Jr. led the Bulldog hit parade, each finishing 3-for-5. O'Donnell had two doubles and Vega had one.

Vogt lost his shutout bid with one out in the bottom of the ninth on an infield ground out by Riley Decker that scored Brian Goedker from third base. The run was unearned, as Maple Lake's Greg Giebenhain reached safely on a catcher's interference call earlier in the inning.

Vogt allowed just six hits, walked four and struck out eight over nine innings.

Although he threw 142 total pitches, Vogt's arm felt just fine afterwards. He credits the offense for making life easy of late for the pitchers.

"Going out with a 1-0 or 2-0 lead, your mentality doesn't necessarily change, but the pressure pitches is totally different," said Vogt, who will have plenty of time to rest as he prepares for his upcoming wedding this Saturday. "There's a big difference when you have high pressured pitches. You may only be able to go 6-7 innings, opposed to a non-pressured game, where you can nine."

Vogt emerged last season as one of the premier pitchers in amateur baseball. His performance at Maple Lake proves just that.

"That was just a gutty performance. He got himself locked in and when he gets to where he was tonight, he's really fun to watch," Pokorney said. "He's pitching – not throwing. Luke (Merz) and Carter work really well together."

"He was attacking hitters every pitch. He was mixing things up well, and keeping our hitters off-balance" Wurm said. "He threw a hell of a game. Tip of the cap to him."

 

Rally in Litchfield

Buffalo's 15-6 win last Sunday at Litchfield was anything but a laugher.

The Bulldogs trailed the hometown Blues 4-1 early. Duske tied the score 4-4 in the top of the fourth on a three-run homer, but Litchfield brought a 6-4 lead into the seventh, before Buffalo's bats really caught on fire.

Eckstein made it 6-5 with an RBI single. Haight's pinch-hit single proved to be the eventual game-winning RBI when Renshaw and Eckstein both scored on the play.

Renshaw's two-run homer in the eighth gave the Bulldogs a 9-6 advantage. Buffalo added six more in the ninth, sparked by a pair of 2-RBI doubles by Renshaw and Eckstein. Renshaw ended the night 4-4 with three runs, five RBI, two doubles, and a homer. O'Donnell also had three hits and Duske drove in four.

 

Walk-off win

Buffalo's win streak was extended to four straight with a 5-4 home victory Tuesday night over Dassel-Cokato.

JD O'Donnell's RBI double scored Hunter Brings for the walk-off win in the bottom of the ninth. O'Donnell has four doubles in his last eight at-bats. Jon Euerle pitched the final 1-1/3 innings in relief to record the victory.

The Bulldogs are next in action with a 7:30 p.m. road game on Friday, July 13 at Dassel-Cokato.

STMA senior receives TruStone scholarship

The TruStone Financial Foundation recently awarded $12,000 in scholarships last May to nine Class of 2018 high school seniors.

Receiving a $1,000 scholarship was St. Michael-Albertville senior Aubrey Hamilton, presented to her on May 14 at TruStone Credit Union in Rogers.

The scholarship recipients were scored on the academic merit, extra-curricular activities, work experience and essay response regarding financial management.

"We are proud to award these nine deserving students a scholarship to pursue their secondary education," said Steve Bohlig, Chairman of the TruStone Financial Foundation. "Their pursuit of education and dedication to their community are values the TruStone Financial Foundation holds high in regard. On behalf of the board of directors, we wish all our scholarship recipients the very best."

Hamilton will attend the University of North Dakota this fall.
