Storm trio made scoring a habit in 2012-2013

The Storm boys hockey team certainly saved its best for last this year.  MBA closed out the 2012-2013 season with a 17-10 overall record and 6-4 mark within the Southwest Conference.

The Storm started off 0-3 and 3-6 before turning the season around with an 11-4 victory over Worthington, Jan. 5, the first day of the new year.

Prior to that, MBA had given up 10 or more goals in four of the first nine games, but only gave up that many one time over the last 18 games.

The Storm had a 14-4 record during the 2013 portion of their schedule, including a 4-2 win over league-champion Luverne.  MBA ended up losing 5-4 to  Marshall one game later, preventing the Storm from contending for the Southwest Conference title.

Abby Fragodt and Emily Auch, both of Benson, were key members of the UM-Morris women’s basketball team, which won its fourth-straight UMAC regular-season title during the 2012-2013 season.

In addition, Fragodt earned three postseason honors as she was named to the 17-member All-Conference team, 5-player UMAC All-Defensive team, and 8-member Sportsmanship Team, one from each team and selected by team members.
Two UM-Morris teammates earned placement on the All-UMAC first team, including UMAC Player of the Year, Emily Mehr, while Fragodt was named to the seven-person honorable mention team.  

Fragodt, a starting junior forward, was first on the team in rebounds (10.4 per game), minutes played (29.6 per game), and blocks (2.3 per game), was second in steals, third in assists, and fifth in scoring (5.6 per game).

City of Benson needs volunteers

A few good citizens willing to give as little as one hour a month to make the City of Benson a better place to live and work, ensure its economic vitality, and make it a more attractive community are being sought.  They are needed to fill vacancies on the city’s boards and commissions, vacancies that in some case have existed for months.

Benson’s boards and commissions keep an eye on a wide variety of city operations, taking citizen input and making recommendations for improvements to the city council.  For the five-member Benson City Council to keep on top of all that is going on in the community and all that needs to be done, and how it should be done, is a daunting task.
