Historic Husky Baseball Season Ends
Head Coach Pat Dolan guided the Huskies to 54-5 season

The 2015 St. Cloud State baseball season ended last weekend falling to Henderson State University in the NCAA Central Regional Championships at Joe Faber field in St. Cloud. SCSU hosted the regional and were the top seed in the six team double-elimination tournament. On Friday the Huskies fell in the opening game to the Reddies of Henderson State and had to battle back through the losers bracket.


St. Cloud would end up eliminating three teams in route to the regional championship including NSIC rival Minnesota-State Mankato. With the wins SCSU met Henderson State again in the regional championship and needed to beat the Reddies two times to advance to College World Series. Despite taking a 7-2 lead Henderson State chipped away, eventually tying the game in the eighth inning. Mother Nature continued to plague the tournament as the game was delayed in the ninth inning for two hours due to rain and lightning.


In the bottom of the tenth inning, Henderson State would get a leadoff double and then walked it off for the victory securing a birth to the College World Series and ending the Huskies season. With the loss SCSU finished their 2015 season 54-5, setting a school record for wins in a season. It was the fourth time since 2010 SCSU finished runner-up in a regional.

Reese Gregory, Kyle Lieser and Eric Loxtercamp were named to the Central Region All-Tournament team. St. Cloud will graduate nine seniors that were responsible for two conference championships and three regional appearances.

SCSU Men's Basketball Signs Adam Heede-Andersen
SCSU men's basketball head coach Matt Reimer is finding success as a recruiter.

The St. Cloud State men’s basketball recruiting class size just doubled. Matt Reimer announced last week that the team has signed Adam Heede-Andersen of Denmark. Heede-Andersen is a 6’1 180 lbs. graduate of Stenhus Gymnasium in Denmark. He played three seasons at Stenhus and, as a three time co-captain, led his team to the final four in all three seasons.

He played a summer for the Global Squad Golden Dragons and did a post-graduate prep year at West Oaks Academy as a member of the Max My Game program in 2015.

He holds the Golden Dragon’s all-time record for assists in a game with 12 and has the 3rd most career assists (despite playing only one summer) with 96. He also led the team in steals with 25. Heede-Andersen averaged 4.0 assists and 1.0 steals per game with the Golden Dragons.

At West Oaks Academy (a prep school with a reputation for sending their students to D-I programs), Heede-Andersen became the starting point guard in the second half of the season and helped guide the team to a 40-9 overall record while playing a national schedule.

Adam’s award list includes the 2011 Vaerlfse Basketball Klub Male Person of the Year, best player in the ’96 age group of the U18 preseason tournament in Warszawa, Poland, and All-Star award at the Elite Jove summer camp in Solsona, Spain.

According to Reimer, Heede-Andersen’s international and prep school experience will help him to prepare for the competition in the NSIC.

Heede-Andersen joins St. Cloud Cathedral standout Brindley Theisen in the Huskies 2015-16 recruiting class.

Poydras, Cegers, and Krych No Longer On Men's Basketball Roster

Poydras, Cegers, and Krych No Longer On Men's Basketball Roster
Jordan Poydras is looking for a spot on a Division I roster next season.

The St. Cloud State men's basketball program could be in a heap of trouble come next season. Jordan Poydras, Donnell Cegers, and Simon Krych have all left the program.

Poydras is looking to test the waters in Division I college basketball. On April 6th Poydras posted the following quote on his twitter account: "Thank you St. Cloud for all the years of fun. I will be transferring but thank you for the memories and the love. I will never forget it."
 
Poydras led the Huskies in points, assists, steals, and minutes. He also placed third on the team in rebounding and was named to the Darktronics All-Central Region Second Team and the All-NSIC First Team. Though he doesn't know where exactly he will end up transferring, we wish him the best both athletically and beyond.
Donnell Cegers' departure was described by head coach Matt Reimer as a "mutual parting of ways" in his interview with Andy Rennecke for the St. Cloud Times. The junior transfer averaged 10.0 points per game on better than 55% shooting for the Huskies last season.
 
Simon Krych left to put more focus on his academics. He transferred to St. Cloud State from the University of Nebraska-Omaha last season. Though he didn't get a lot of playing time this season he did give a strong outing against Crossroads College (9 points in 14 minutes).
 
With key players like James Fort, Kevin Levandoski, and Connor Niehaus graduating on top of those leaving the program the Huskies will need to have a strong recruiting season to keep pace with the stiff competition in the NSIC.
