Jim Russell, Central Lakes College men's basketball coach, welcomed two recruits for the 2012-13 season at the Brainerd school. Alex Stafford (left) from Henry Sibley High School, St. Paul, was an all-conference performer who averaged 10 points and seven rebounds. John Jedneak is a Princeton product with all-conference credentials and averages of 12 points and eight rebounds last season. CLC finished fourth in the NJCAA Division III tournament and went 29-4 last year, while winning the Minnesota College Athletic Conference crown. Division III is non-athletic scholarship but provides a proving ground for student athletes aspiring to earn NCAA opportunities.
