12-20-14 Panthers Beyond
Hesston College (Kansas) freshman guard Alyssa Graber, a 2014 Wolford School graduate, has helped the Larks to a 9-6 record through Dec. 6.
The team is off until Jan. 10. Hesston College, a two-year Mennonite school, plays in the Kansas Jayhawk Community College Conference of the National Junior College Athletic Association.
Graber has appeared in 12 games, averaging 8.2 minutes. She has seven points and 12 rebounds.
Dakota College at Bottineau freshman forward Mattie Schmitt continues to excel in her first season of college basketball.
Schmitt is averaging 12.3 points through 11 games played and the team is 11-2. She started 10 of those. Schmitt is fourth on the team in scoring, but leads the Lady Jacks with 8.6 rebounds per game. She also leads the team at 0.9 blocks per game.
Bobcats moving up
The Bismarck Bobcats have won four of the last five games and are up to third in the North American Hockey League Central Division standings.
The Bobcats are 15-4-1 and in third place in the Central Division with 31 points. Minot (18-8-3) leads the division with 39 points, one point ahead of Austin (Minn.).
Former Bottineau-Rugby stars Harrison Aide and Cody Longie continue to play big roles for the junior league team.
Aide is tied with one other for sixth on the team in total points with 16. He has six goals and 10 assists and is fourth on the team with 59 shots. Longie, a defenseman, has a goal and 8 assists. The duo’s line has struggled though as both players are -6 on the season. Discipline is serving both players well, each serving only four penalty minutes all season.
Aide scored twice last week, including a third-period goal in a 5-4 win over Aberdeen (S.D.) on Dec. 12. Aide scored again the following night in a 5-4 loss to Bismarck.
