Two BBE athletes sign

Two student-athletes who played for Belgrade-Brooten-Elrosa High School teams have signed Letters of Intent to play basketball in the Minnesota College Athletic Conference as Central Lakes College Raiders starting with the 2011-12 season. Brent Koehler (left) and Kevin Kuefler were in Brainerd June 7 to put their signatures on the official document presented by Coach Jim Russell. The pair of 6-4 guard-forward standouts from the state runner-up team of 2011 can expect to see lots of playing time for one of the region's top collegiate squads, a perennial Division powerhouse. Kevin and Brent are both academic honor students as well as multi-sport athletes. Kevin averaged nearly 20 points and earned numerous post-season honors for the 32-1 BBE state contenders. Brent was a starter in his final season at BBE, averaging eight points. Kevin was named to the All-Tournament Team as selected by the state tournament media. Welcome to these former Jaguars who are sure to be fine additions to college-level athletics at CLC.
