by Sam Herder, Devils Lake Journal Sports

D

uane Schwab

, retired athletic director and head women’s

basketball coach at LRSC, has been inducted into the

Class of 2016 NJCAA Hall of Fame. Duane was LRSC

athletic director from 1990 to 2014. He coached women’s

basketball 1989-2014 where he won 572 games, won 14

Mon-Dak Conference titles, and appeared at nine NCJAA

National Tournaments.

“It’s probably the highest accomplishment he can get as far as

the NJCAA goes,”

Danny Mertens

, who took over the role of

athletic director and head women’s basketball coach, said.

“It’s pretty honoring to click on the website and see your mentor.

I mean, he taught me everything I know. I spent quite a few years

with him and we had some good teams.”

Royals athletes had a great year!

T

he Lady Royals clinched the Region 13

and District D title and made a return

trip to the NJCAA National Tournament

in Lubbock TX. Their season came to an

end in the opening round which featured

#20 Lady Royals taking on #13 Northeast-

ern Oklahoma A&M.

Two golfers also made national appear-

ances.

Eric Gullicks

placed in the Top 5 at

the Region XIII Tournament at Mesabi

Range to advance to the NJCAA National

Tournament held in May at Swan Lake

Kelsey

Schlenk

qualified for nationals for the sec-

ond year in a row. She finished third in the

region to qualify for the national tourna-

ment held in May at the LPGA Interna-

tional in Daytona Beach.

Kelsey’s appearance made her a four-

time national tournament athlete. She was

a part of the Lady Royals basketball team

that advanced to national competition in

2015 and 2016 and has two NJCAA golf

tournament appearances.

“LRSC has never produced a four-time

national competitor before ... ,”

“We have true student

athletes, but I want to thank

faculty and staff for their hard

work and help to make these

student athletes successful off
