KMS boys hoping for breakout year

Pictured above are the senior captains for the KMS boys basketball team, Brandon Rasmusson (left) and Josh Peterson, along with head coach Matt Fragodt.

The KMS boys basketball team is set to open up the season Friday, Dec. 1 at home against Belgrade-Brooten-Elrosa.  The table appears set this year for the Saints to have a breakout year.  The Saints return all but two players from last year’s team, which went 5-22 overall.

The 2017-18 team will feature the return of four of five players who scored at least 199 points last year, and the top three rebounders.

Among the returning players is senior Josh Peterson, who was named the MVP from last year’s team after leading the Saints in scoring with 333 points and third in rebounding with 136 boards.

KMS, which had won just four games in the previous four seasons combined before last year, ended last season with three wins over the last seven games.

KMS hoping to get back to state for third-straight year

Pictured are the captains and coach of the KMS wrestling team.  From left to right are Dylan Rudningen, Caleb Collins, Will Magaard, Jon Tostenson, and coach Wes Haglund.  Not pictured, captain Ryan Torkelson.

The KMS wrestling team is hoping for another section title after winning the Section 5A team championship last year and earning a berth at state.

The Saints lost 10 wrestlers from last year’s team, including five or six starters, but KMS should be strong again led by three wrestlers who have already reached 100 career wins and another who should reach that milestone sometime late this season.

KMS was 16-5 overall last year, losing to Litchfield (36-30), Willmar (50-24), and West Central Area (39-18) during the season, and to Pierz (44-19) and Kenyon-Wanamingo (37-19) at state.  Four of those teams competed in the state tournament.

The Saints, who have reached state four times in the last nine years, including the last two-straight tournaments, also had six wrestles earn berths at state, including Derek Krieger who placed sixth, and Will Magaard and Dylan Rudningen, who both placed seventh.
