After finishing the fall 2011 MRL season in second place, the U18 SSM girls set a goal to win the spring 2012 MRL season. As a team this meant to finish undefeated and untied. So over the course of four weekends playing 9 games the U18 girls accomplished their goal of finishing the MRL season 9-0-0 and Champions. The first weekend (March 24-25) was a long bus ride to Lexington, KY to play three games in less than 24 hours. Game 1 SSM 4:1 Lexington with 4 goals from Darian Powell. Game 2 SSM 4:0 Indiana Fever with goals from Darian Powell (2) and Karina Fredette (2). The shutout was earned by Skyllar Hughes. Game 3 SSM 2:0 Greater Toledo with goals from Darian Powell and Karina Fredette. Stos Behle and Skyllar Hughes shared the shutout. Game 4 was a rare single game weekend at home (March 31) with SSM defeating Pacesetters of Ohio 3:0. Goals were scored by Amanda Goulet, Karina Fredette and Kaelyn Korte. Stos Behle and Skyllar Hughes again shared the shutout. The second weekend of (April 13-14) was another rare weekend of home MRL games. Game 5 on Friday the 13 th SSM defeated Dakota Rev 4-1. After going down 0-1 in the 16 th minute of the game, the Sabres fought back scoring four unanswered goals – Powell on the stroke of half-time and Civanni Moss, Powell and Patterson finished in the second half. In game 6 SSM then defeated Eagan Wave 3:0 with three second half goals from Fredette, Patterson and Powell. The final weekend (April 21-22) of the season was a trip to Hebron, IN. On a cool breezy Saturday morning Game 7 was SSM 3:1 Ohio Elite. All goals were scored in the first half by Darian Powell, Kennedy Ulrich and Ashley Boitz. Game 8 which was the second game of the day SSM 6:0 Evansville SC saw another 4 goal performance this time from Kennedy Ulrich. Moss and Powell rounded out the scoring. Game 9 was a very early 7:30 am start on a cold and breezy morning. SSM’s opponent St. Francis Fusion (IN) came into the game fresh not having played the day before. St. Francis proved to be the strongest opponent during the spring campaign. SSM went up 1:0 in the 22 nd minute on a Justy Linton header from a Civanni Moss corner kick. The joy was short lived though as St. Francis equalized 3 minutes later from an indirect free kick from 12 yards out. Karina Fredette scored the winning goal from a solo run in the 68 th minute. For the last 20 minutes of the game SSM’s superior play and fitness proved too much as they created several additional chances to put the game out of reach. “It was great to finish the spring MRL season as undefeated champions” exclaimed Head Coach David Linenberger. “The girls really rose to the occasion in this last game and showed we are a class above the rest. Their attitude and play was outstanding this whole campaign!” “This is the momentum we need to carry us into our State Cup run” said an excited captain Dani Patterson. “We’re going all the way this year!”

The luck of the Irish was with Brianna Decker ’09 on St. Patrick’s Day when she was awarded the top women’s college hockey award in the nation. Anyone familiar with Brianna and her work ethic would say luck had very little to do with such an honor. The numbers don’t lie. Brianna was the top goal-earner in the nation with 37 for the season and had 82 points. She was an outstanding player while at SSM, having played on the Girls Prep team four years. With another year at the Unviersity of Wisconsin, Brianna would like to see her team win a another national title and she could be just the second player ever to receive the Kazmaier Award twice. Former Sabre, Jocelyn Lamoureaux ’08, who plays for Unviversity of North Dakota, was also a finalist for this honor.

Both the U18 and the U17 Shattuck St. Mary’s Girls teams departed school earlier this week for their participation in the Jefferson Cup in Richmond, Virginia. The players and coaches came back early from their spring break to have a few training sessions before their 24 hour bus ride. The teams departed on Tuesday evening in order to get to Virginia with enough time to recover before their first game on Friday afternoon. Coach David Linenberger said “Traditionally we are a bit rusty coming off of our schools three week long spring break, but we always improve with each game at the Jefferson Cup.” The Jefferson Cup is a great event for the girls program, “last year we did very well as U17’s, so I hope that it will be the same this year.” This tournament holds even more importance because it is the first step in the preparation for State Cup in May. Despite the long bus ride, traveling to the Jefferson Cup gives the Shattuck teams the opportunity to face opponents outside of Minnesota and the surrounding area. According to Coach Linenberger, it is always a plus for the players to see the level of play through out the country from teams in different states. The coaching staff is excited to see where they are at this point in the year and how they stack up against the teams in the Jefferson Cup. Jefferson Cup U18 schedule: Group A 3/16/12: (4:20pm) SSM vs. Jersey United Spartans White (NJ) 3/17/12: (1:00pm) SSM vs. Arundel Vipers (MD) 3/18/12: (11:20am) SSM vs. Oakwood (CT) Jefferson Cup U17 schedule: Group B 3/16/12: (12:40pm) Ashburn SC Premier Gold (VA) vs. SSM 3/17/12: (2:40pm) Bethesda SC Storm (MD) vs. SSM 3/18/12: (9:30am) South Central Premier Select (CT) vs. SSM

Girls Travel to Virginia for Jefferson Cup
Golfers wrapped up in Palm Desert, CA with many positives coming from the trip out west. The two-day tournament had weather conditions at each end of the spectrum. The first day was absolutely perfect with temperatures near 75 degrees and no breeze at all. The second round was a lot different with temperatures not getting over 60 degrees and the wind gusting in upwards of 40 mph. Nathan Zhao continued his strong play after coming off a victory in his last tournament this past December with a 2nd place finish in the Boys 13-15 age group. Zhao was tied with two other golfers for 2nd place after the first round and was only one shot off of the leader. He shot a 2nd round 84 that was good enough for sole possession of second place after completion of the tournament and two shots back of the leader. The Classic Club can be known for its tough playing conditions as it used to be a host course for the Bob Hope Classic but the brutally tough conditions caused the PGA Tour to reconsider and move to another location.
In the Boys 16-19 age group Jake Curwin made a considerable jump on the leader board during the second round. He started out the final day in 34th position with an opening round 83 but was able to keep his focus and come out hot on the final day. Curwin posted the 3rd lowest score of the day out of the 100 junior golfers that took to the course with a 79 in the brutally tough conditions. With that great final round he was able to jump 20+ positions on the leader board and finish in 13th place. Phillip Baumberger also moved up on the leader board on the final day with a round of 86 after an opening round 87 which put him in 33rd place overall.
Sydney Brickey finished in 13th place in the Girls 13-18 age group after fighting hard and holding her composure. She had an opening round 93 then followed that up with a final round 102.
