roebuck brenen signing

Brenen Roebuck, a high-energy guard from Ralston, NE, signed a National Letter of Intent with Southwestern yesterday.  Roebuck caught the eye of head coach Mike Holmes with his understanding of the game, especially on the defensive end of the floor, and his consistent hustle.  Roebuck is a guard who can get to the basket, handle the ball, and hit the outside shot on occasion.  Despite several verbal commitments, Roebuck is the first official signing for the Spartans.  He will join eight incoming freshmen in this year’s recruiting class.

Shelby Williams brought home tournament-champion hardware last weekend at Otter Creek in Ankeny by carding an 88 and 84 to beat 28 other competitors.  The Spartan men and women all played as individual players since several team members had previous commitments.  Other notable individual efforts were by two players who improved dramatically from Day one to Day two.  Konnor Griffith shaved 15 strokes and Courtney Hackett knocked off 12.  Southwestern will next play in team competition Monday, April 14, at Fort Dodge.
