NMU Sports Three Stars (Feb. 4-10)
February 12, 2013 - Matt Wellens
MARQUETTE — The Northern Michigan University Nordic ski team was off last weekend, meaning no hogging of the NMU Sports Three Stars for Sten Fjeldheim’s crew.
The NMU Sports Three Stars works just like three stars in hockey with the third star being the third best performance and first star being the top performer of the week. All NMU varsity NCAA teams are eligible — from hockey to skiing to golf — and a week will be considered Monday through Sunday.
Note that I have the option to add an honorable mention if I see fit. This week, I don’t see the need. Sorry.
Here are the honorees from last week. Congrats to the victors on such a prestigious award, which is chosen by such a prestigious panel — me.
Crystal Bennet, women’s swimming and diving — The freshman won a GLIAC title in the 100-yard butterfly on Friday at the conference championship meet in Canton, Ohio. Her time of 55.57 seconds is new NMU record.
Jared Coreau, men’s hockey — The junior goaltender finished with a complete game shutout for only the second time in his collegiate career and first this season in the Wildcats 3-0 win on Saturday against Ferris State. Coreau only needed to make 19 saves Saturday for the shutout after stopping 15 of 17 shots the night before in a 3-1 defeat.
Madisen Sechena, women’s swimming and diving — The sophomore finished with two third-place finishes and a first at the GLIAC Championship meet in Canton. Sechena won the 400-yard individual medley in an NMU-record-time of 4:27.61. She also placed third in the 200 breaststroke and 200 IM.
