Preps of the Week

The Sloan Brothers

In southeast Minnesota, many people saw the Grand Meadow Superlarks win their 3rd-straight state championship last Friday—but this championship was a little more special for head coach Gary Sloan.

  • Savanna Cordle

    The Hayfield Vikings volleyball team, once again, has gone deep into the Section 1A playoffs--and they have a chance to advance to their first state tournament in school history because of their senior middle hitter.

  • Christina Wentz and Brenna Sharp

    The John Marshall Rockets girls swimming team is right in the thick of the Big 9 Conference race, but what makes them successful is their team chemistry—and that’s thanks to their senior captains, Christina Wentz and Brenna Sharp.

  • Colton Lampert

    With their 7-0 record and dominance on the field, the Caledonia Warriors are the likely favorites to win the Class AA state title this year—and part of the reason is thanks to their sure-handed senior wide receiver, Colton Lampert.

  • Clare Palen

    (ABC 6 News) – For Rochester Lourdes, they’ve had a lot going for them recently—their baseball team nearly pulled off an undefeated season in Spring, and the football team hasn’t lost a game since 2013. With so much success, it can be easy to overlook their girls tennis team, which is off to a 13-1 start this season.

  • Ben Colvin and Brennan Gustafson

    One may not think of cross country as a sport that relies so heavily on the team. But for the Triton/Kasson-Mantorville boys, their success so far this season is a product of their depth as a whole.

  • Mitaya Johnson

    A setter runs the court for her volleyball team and holds the offense in her hands. Mitaya Johnson of the Byron Bears has been doing it since her Freshman year.

  • Michael Otomo

    (ABC 6 News) – The Dover-Eyota Eagles were a confident group heading into the 2015 football season—and they’ve backed it up by winning each of their last three games by an average of 35.6 points, matching their 2014 win total in the process.

  • Alejandro Garcia and Noah Karge

    (ABC 6 News) – The Albert Lea Tigers boys soccer team (3-2-2 overall, 1-2-1 conference) have hung around in the Big 9, sitting three points behind Mankato West and Northfield for third place in the conference—and it’s thanks to a pair of Tigers.

  • Samantha McMillen

    Kasson-Mantorville volleyball is undefeated in the HVL and is ranked fifth in the state in class AA. That is in part, thanks to the consistency of their senior middle hitter.

  • Kate Holtan

    The Mayo Spartans volleyball team is off to a perfect 3-0 start. Part of their success so far has been led by their Junior libero-turned outside hitter.

  • Mason Carstens

    (ABC 6 News) – The Rochester Lourdes Eagles’ football team came into the season with a big target on their backs—but the defending state champions are running by everyone in the first few weeks of the season, thanks to their senior running back, Mason Carstens.

  • Brittney Gruszynski

    (ABC 6 News) – For the Rochester Lourdes Eagles’ girls soccer team, Brittney Gruszynski isn’t your typical soccer player.

  • Brandon Hoth

    Stewartville football lost some key players from their 2014 success, but that’s something the Tigers don’t need to worry about because of the way certain Seniors are stepping up. One of those is your ABC 6 Male Prep Athlete of the Week.
