Sports Notebook for January 26
Woodbury alumnae Emily Klatt and Julia Curry each had standout weeks for their respective college teams, while Kassey Kallman earned another honor for her work as a senior on the Woodbury girls soccer team last fall.
Klatt named MIAC Player of the Week
Woodbury High School alumnae Emily Klatt, a sophomore goaltender for the Gustavus Adolphus College women's hockey team, was named the Minnesota Intercollegiate Athletic Conference Women's Player of the Week after helping the Gusties go 2-0 last week.
The former five-year starting goaltender for Woodbury gave up one goal and made 30 saves combined in 90 minutes of play as Gustavus Adolphus upset No. 5-ranked University of Wisconsin-River Falls, 2-1, on Tuesday, Jan. 19, then topped Saint Mary's, 1-0, five nights later.
Klatt has given up seven goals on the season with a .915 save percentage and a 2-1-2 record through the Saint Mary's contest.
Curry has career day at Wirth
Woodbury High School alumnae Julia Curry, a junior on the College of St. Scholastica women's Nordic ski team, landed a personal and program-best finish in placing eighth at the Central Collegiate Ski Association (CCSA) competition at Theodore Wirth Park in Minneapolis on Sunday, Jan. 24.
Kallman an ESPN All-American
Woodbury girls soccer player Kassey Kallman was named an All-American player by ESPN Rise Magazine.
The Royals senior, who has committed to play collegiately for Florida State, had previously been named the Class AA Miss Soccer honoree by the state coaches association.
Curry led a groundbreaking performance not only personally in a program-best individual finish in CCSA competition in a time of 31:34.3 seconds, but she also led the Saints women off of a program-best fifth place team finish Saturday to a fourth place high-water mark for the program.
Curry recently had a career-best ninth place finish in CCSA competition in the women's 20-kilometer classic in Anchorage.
