Introducing the Inside 1401 Sports Blog’s weekly NMU Sports Three Stars

January 7, 2013 - Matt Wellens

MARQUETTE — So the Inside 1401 Sports Blog started out fairly strong in its infancy this season, however, a variety of factors — like me having to also run the Mining Journal Sports department — have taken my attention away from the blog.

One of my 2013 Mining Journal resolutions is to be more active on the blog here through little features. The first I’m introducing is the NMU Sports Three Stars of the Week.

The feature 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.

I’ll try and post the three stars every Monday during the NMU sports seasons, but don’t be surprised if it occasionally gets delayed until Tuesday.

So here’s is the first round of the NMU Sports Three Stars. Congrats to the victors on such a prestigious award, which is chosen by such a prestigious panel — me.

NMU Sports Three Stars

Dec. 31-Jan. 6

Third star

Rosie Frankowski, women’s Nordic skiing — The junior from Minneapolis led the women’s ski team in both the freestyle and classic races at the 2013 U.S. Cross Country Ski Championships in Solidier Hollow, Utah. In Friday’s 10K freestyle, she finished 30th overall and 12th in U23 with a time of 32 minutes, 28.4 seconds. In Sunday’s 20K classic, she finished 10th overall in 1:09.34.3.

Second star

Quinten Calloway, men’s basketball — The sophomore point guard from Milwaukee led the Wildcats in scoring in a pair of GLIAC victories last week at the Berry Events Center. Calloway posted 15 points in a 73-66 win over Ashland on Thursday and 16 in a 66-52 win over Lake Erie College.

First star

Reed Seckel, men's hockey — The sophomore forward from downstate Melvin scored three goals and an assist in a nonconference road sweep of St. Cloud State. Seckel had two goals in a 6-2 victory on Friday, the added a goal and assist in the 2-1 win on Saturday. Seckel, who eight goals and seven assists, leads NMU in goals scored and is a point back of senior Matt Thurber for the team-high in points.
