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.

goettert kris

Kris Goettert, a 6'6" post from McArthur High School in Florida, known for energy and rebounds, has given a verbal commitment to the Southwestern Men’s Basketball program.  Goettert, who has only been playing organized for three years, is still hitting his potential, but already brings a rebounding presence to the rotation for 2014-15.  Goettert was selected for the Dade-Brevard County All-Star game, and was a member of a district champion this year at McArthur High School.  Goettert plans to study physical therapy in college, and chose Southwestern because he feels it is different and fits his skill set well. 

Head Coach Mike Holmes said, “Kris continues our recruiting theme this year of pursuing guys who have a motor that won’t quit and who are competitive.  I was really impressed when I watched him that he never stops competing for rebounds and loose balls.  He also has a nice touch around the rim and can do things with both hands.”

Jared Theis and Shelby Williams paced Southwestern in their first golf meet of the Spring, held at Mozingo Golf Club in Maryville, MO Friday and Saturday.  The meet featured primarily four-year institutions, so the Spartans were looking to gain experience on a challenging course against top-notched competition.  Riding an eagle in round one, Theis carded an 88, which was the best men’s submission for Southwestern.  After a tough first day, Williams also brought home a solid round of 88 in day two of the event.  Most of the Spartan men and women improved from day one to two, which was the progress for which the team was hoping.  Southwestern will next play Tuesday in Oskaloosa.  They will again see a large field of four-year schools, trying to get ready for conference competition.
