Kyley Elmblad (women’s basketball – Ripon College)

  • Why Kyley Chose Ripon College“I chose Ripon College because of the opportunities provided both academically and athletically. Ripon allows me to pursue a degree in Electrical Engineering while continuing my basketball career. The tradition, community support, success of the program, and teacher involvement at Ripon is beyond none other. Throughout the recruiting process both the team and coaching staff welcomed me. Within one visit, Coach Lauren was able to explain to both my parents and I, all of my strengths and weaknesses, and what I could bring to the team. After the meeting it was pretty clear that both the team’s goals and mine aligned. Without my parents and coaches supporting me and helping me strive to be the best I can be, I wouldn’t be fulfilling my dream of playing basketball in college. In conclusion I am thankful for every person who has helped me throughout my journey. I am excited to become a Red Hawk and continue growing as both a person and player.”

Ian Kangas (cycling – King University)

  • Why Ian Chose King University“I chose King University for many reasons. First, being the small school feel. With King having a smaller campus and student body, I won’t feel overwhelmed by the number of people I’ll be around. The cycling coaches at King, Coach Sparks and Coach Erin, saw my passion for the sport of cycling through my social media and reached out. After meeting with them and being offered a roster spot, I was told I’d be able to participate from day one, meaning I’d have my dream of racing bikes collegiately come true. Also, the cycling team has a strong bond and is close knitted as a family would be. I am very excited to move south and be part of King’s cycling team, reaching the next level in my cycling career.”

 

Nick Pantti (baseball – Lakeland University)

  • Why Nick Chose Lakeland University“I chose Lakeland University because the people and places on campus made it feel like I was already a great fit and already at home. Lakeland provides me with everything I’m looking for educationally and athletically. Continuing my baseball career at the college level is something I have wanted to do since I was a little kid. In addition to playing baseball I look forward to furthering my education, hopefully leading to a job through their amazing Sports Management and Leadership program. Overall, Lakeland will be a fresh start for me and I look forward to seeing what I can make of the opportunity I’ve been given and where it takes me. Thank you to my parents, coaches and teammates who have all supported me during this process and made it possible for me in the end.”                                                                                                                                                               

Isaac Sarles (baseball – St. Norbert College)

  • Why Isaac Chose St. Norbert College:  I chose St. Norbert College because of the beautiful school and thriving athletic program. I’ve always had an interest in attending St. Norbert while also having the goal of continuing my baseball career at the school. When I went to the campus visit, I knew that was where I wanted to spend the next four years. Along with the athletic aspect of college, I was very pleased with the professors and their willingness to help. This is a dream come true and I would like to thank my parents and coaches, teammates and the Marquette Baseball family who have helped me along the way to be able to achieve this opportunity. Go Green Knights!”

Julia Ott, Baux Truckey and Logan Peterson Selected As April Student-Athletes Of The Month

Julia Ott, Baux Truckey and Logan Peterson Selected As April Student-Athletes Of The Month

Marquette Senior High School, along with Superiorland Kiwanis, are proud to announce that Julia Ott (girls track & field), Baux Truckey (girls track & field) and Logan Peterson (baseball) have been named as the Student-Athletes of the Month for April 2023.

Julia Ott is a member of the Senior Class of 2023 at MSHS and is in the process of finishing a four-year career as a member of the MSHS Girls Track & Field Team.

In the team’s two completed meets so far this season, she has racked up five total first place event finishes, including four at last week’s multi-team meet in Escanaba. Julia’s success as a track & field student-athlete has her as a three-time MHSAA U.P. Division 1 Champion (2022 800M Relay; 2021 High Jump; 2021 800M Relay) and eight-time medalist at the MHSAA U.P. Track & Field Finals. The time turned in by her 800M Relay team in 2021 (50.11) still stands as an MSHS School and MHSAA U.P. Finals Meet Record.

Julia is a two-sport athlete at MSHS having also been a four-year member of the Girls Basketball Team. Her senior season on the court was also filled with accolades as she was named to the All-Great Northern Conference Second Team and received All-U.P. Honorable Mention honors. In addition, Julia was selected as a recipient of the Outstanding Senior Student-Athlete Award by the Basketball Coaches Association of Michigan (BCAM) and also received the BCAM “Team First” Award for having demonstrated putting team before self, teamwork, commitment, service and sacrifice.

In the classroom, Julia owns a 4.14 cumulative GPA which has her included on the MSHS Honor Roll and holding membership in the National Honor Society. Outside of school, Julia volunteers time at Redeemer Lutheran Church, Camp Luther and with the Marquette Junior Wildcats Youth Basketball program.

In December 2022, Julia signed a National Letter of Intent to attend and participate in the women’s track & field program at Davenport University beginning in Fall 2023. While at Davenport, she intends on majoring in Sports Management.

Baux Truckey is a soon-to-be graduating Senior his year and is wrapping-up a remarkable a four-year career as a member of the MSHS Girls Track & Field Team.

Although just two meets into her final track & field season, Baux is off to another strong start with three first place event finishes so far. During her sophomore (2021) and junior (2022) seasons, Baux accomplished the rare feat of earning four first place event finishes at the MHSAA U.P. Track & Field Finals by having claimed titles in the 100M Dash, 200M Dash, 400M Relay and 800M Relay in each of the past two seasons. Her 400M Relay team’s mark of 50.11 at the 2021 Finals Meet set both MSHS and MHSAA U.P. Finals Meet Records.

Baux’s success extends into the classroom, where she owns a 3.74 cumulative GPA. Her marks have her as a member of both the MSHS Honor Roll and the National Honor Society. In addition to track & field, Baux participates in several other extra-curricular activities at MSHS including Cross Country, Marching Band, Jazz Band and HOSA. Outside of these activities, Baux still finds time to volunteer time with the MSHS 8th Grade Orientation and NMU Theatre-for-All programs.

This spring, Baux signed a National Letter of Intent to attend and participate in the women’s track & field program at Northern Michigan University beginning in Fall 2023. While at NMU, she will major in the Athletic Training and Exercise Science program.

Logan Peterson is of senior class standing at MSHS this year and is in the midst of his final season as a member of the MSHS Varsity Baseball Team.

In the team’s nine games played this season, Logan leads the group in Batting Average (.524), Hits (11), Runs (13) and Walks (6). He also has 5 RBIs so far on the year.  Logan’s experience, dedication, commitment and work ethic have been invaluable to this year’s varsity team and is very much leaned on to provide the squad with senior leadership. After having received All-Great Northern Conference First Team accolades as a junior, it is without question that Logan will find more success at his senior year continues.

In addition to his time spent on the field, Logan has also been a two-year member of the MSHS Varsity Boys Basketball Team. In both seasons, Logan brought a grit and energy to both the offensive and defensive ends of the floor that were instrumental to the team’s success. Upon the conclusion of his junior season, Logan was selected as a recipient of the “Team First” Award by the Basketball Coaches Association of Michigan (BCAM) for having demonstrated putting team before self, teamwork, commitment, service and sacrifice.

Academically, Logan owns a 3.83 cumulative GPA to have him as a member of both the MSHS Honor Roll and National Honor Society. He is also a four-year member of the Redmen Chorale. Earlier this year, Logan was selected by teachers as MSHS “Student of the Week” and also served as a school representative at the MHSAA Sportsmanship Summit.

Upon his graduation from MSHS this spring, Logan has plans to continue his education and baseball career at Bay College. He has not yet decided on a program of study.
