The winter sports season is coming to a close, and several standout Fergus Falls High School athletes have done some amazing things.

The Daily Journal would like to congratulate senior Abbot Aho for breaking the high school record for most career wins, senior diver Michael Aasness for setting the school’s diving points record, senior basketball player Mike Millard for breaking the career points record and junior basketball player Brianna Rasmussen for reaching 1,000 points and 1,000 career assists, a record.

Record-breaking results like these can only come from hard work and dedication, along with fantastic coaching. While much of the spotlight has been on the players, we would also like to recognize all of the coaches who have guided these players to their achievements.

Otter hockey coach Mike Donaghue recently became the winningest coach in Fergus Falls High School history.

Local sports are important to the community, and it is up to athletes and coaches to ensure we continue a tradition of success in Fergus Falls athletics.
