Freshmen-laden Men's Basketball Team

Maybe in Jim Russell's first year at Central Lakes College in 1997-98 did the Raiders' head coach have so few returning players.

Sixteen years later, only sophomore Alex Koch returns from last year's Raider team that went 17-13 and finished fourth in the MCAC state/Region 13 tournament. 

"It's all fresh," Russell said. "We usually have between 5-6 guys back. Twelve of the 14 guys who played for us last year are enrolled somewhere else and are going to school. They either transferred or graduated. Four of the six freshmen last year graduated with their AA degree and are playing ball somewhere."

New Basketball Coach Trying to Rebuild Program

During her high school basketball career at Pequot Lakes, Cassie (Evenson) Carey developed a reputation as an aggressive, scrappy player, one who took the ball to the rim, dove for loose balls, blocked out on the boards and tried to cause turnovers.

She strived to be the kind of player the opposition didn't want to face.

Carey, who begins her first season as head coach of the Central Lakes College Raiders, hopes to instill some of those attributes in her first Raider team.
