Leadership for change WISDOM FOR A LIFETIME The College of Saint Benedict in St. Joseph, Minn., was founded by Benedictine Sisters in 1913. The college was uniquely and specifically formed by women for women. Saint Benedict was the 13th women’s college in the United States and today is one of only 64 women’s colleges in the country. Whether in the classroom, at a sporting event, or living in the residence halls, CSB seeks to incorporate learning experiences inspired by the Catholic and Benedictine tradition. The Saint Benedict experience creates a sense of community rarely seen at other colleges. It provides a safe and comfortable environment ideal for inquiring, learning and growing. Located in the heart of central Minnesota lake country and surrounded by 3,500 acres of pure forests and wholesome prairies, Saint Benedict is just minutes away from the St. Cloud metro area and an hour drive from the Twin Cities of Minneapolis and St. Paul. Students experience the benefits of small town modesty, while enjoying the convenient access of a big city. The College of Saint Benedict has a unique partnership with Saint John’s University, a men’s college located four miles away. The schools are nationally recognized Catholic liberal arts colleges and ranked as two of the top three Catholic colleges in the nation. We share one academic program, and students attend classes together on both campuses. This integrated learning experience combines a challenging academic program with extensive opportunities for international study, leadership, service learning, spiritual growth, and cultural and athletic involvement. Both schools are dedicated to the development of a person as a whole. Offering singlegender and co-educational experiences, each strive to meet the distinct needs of women and men. Another advantage of this partnership is the expansion of resources for both institutions. CSB and SJU provide the education and opportunities of a large university accompanied with the individual attention of a small private college. Saint Benedict strives to present students with opportunities to explore, stretch, and challenge their personal excellence. By developing their intellectual, spiritual, emotional, and physical helath, our goal is to enable every woman to achieve her utmost potential. The College of Saint Benedict’s mission is to foster integrated learning, exceptional leadership for change, and wisdom for a lifetime.

Denny Johnson assistant coach Denny Johnson begins another season as an assistant coach for the College of Saint Benedict basketball team under head coach Mike Durbin. Johnson has played a vital role in the Blazers’ success for the past 26 seasons. His knowledge and insight for the game of basketball has made him a top-notch assistant coach. In his time as an assistant basketball coach, Johnson has been honored as AFLAC’s national assistant coach of the year. “It is extremely rare for a head coach and an assistant coach to be together for 25 years at the Division III level,” head coach Mike Durbin said. “I believe the stability and success of this program is a direct link to the longevity of our staff.” Johnson was born and raised in St. Cloud, Minn. and graduated from St. Cloud Technical High School in 1968. In high school, Johnson participated in football, basketball and baseball. Following high school, Johnson attended St. Cloud State University where he earned his Bachelor of Arts degree in English. While attending St. Cloud State University, Johnson was a member of the Husky basketball program under the direction of Marlowe “Red” Severson and Noel Olson. Johnson’s coaching abilities are not limited to basketball; he also served as CSB’s head softball coach for 26 seasons. He won his 500th game on Apr. 28, 2011 against Carleton. He has coached two Blazer MIAC softball championship teams as well as a pair of berths to the NCAA Division III Central Region Tournament in 1993 and 1994. During the 2007 season Johnson recorded his 450th collegiate career victory as the head coach of the Blazers. This spring, he’ll begin a new role, in his first season as an assistant coach for Blazer softball. Johnson and his wife, Robin, have been married 36 years and live in St. Cloud, Minn. Their two daughters graduated from Saint Benedict in 2006 and 2009.
Steve Howe-Veenstra assistant coach Steve Howe-Veenstra enters his 13th season with the Blazer basketball program as an assistant coach. Coach Howe-Veenstra’s experience, knowledge and insight for the game has brought versatility to the staff. According to head coach Mike Durbin, Howe-Veenstra’s assistance with the team and the athletes have been very valuable. “Steve was asked to help with our post players 12 years ago, and the impact was immediate.” Howe-Veenstra’s experience can be traced back over 37 years to St. Cloud Technical High School, where he coached in the boy’s program. Howe-Veenstra was born and raised in St. Cloud, graduating from St. Cloud Technical High School. After graduating from Tech, Howe-Veenstra enrolled at St. Cloud State University and graduated in 1979. Howe-Veenstra is in his 33nd year of teaching special education for St. Cloud School District 742 and his 10th year of teaching in the Community Options Program based at St. Cloud State University. Howe-Veenstra and his wife, Carol Howe-Veenstra, the Saint Benedict Director of Athletics, have been married for 31 years. Their son, Ryan, is a 2009 graduate of Saint John’s University.

Courageous, strong & bold The 1970’s were a time of change, revolution, and transformation. Increased influence of the women’s movement, heightened concern over the environment, and improved space exploration were just a few of the headlines. Saint Benedict was changing too. In the 1976-77 season, the Saint Benedict volleyball team decided they would like their colors to be red and white. Known as the Bennies of the College of Saint Benedict, they also decided they wanted a new moniker. So, they held a contest to find a new nickname. CSB students were invited to submit ideas, and student-athletes selected the one they liked best. “Blazers,” submitted by first-year student Mary Haffner, was chosen as the official sports name. This was a perfect fit as it flawlessly described the hard work, determination, and success of the trailblazing women who founded the college. These sisters “blazed” their way through a field of uncertainty and unknown land to settle in Minnesota in 1856. They went on to establish the largest Benedictine community in the United States. They also built hundreds of hospitals, schools, orphanages -- and the College of Saint Benedict in 1913. Blazers pays tribute to the courageous, strong, and bold women of the past and gives encouragement and pride to the women of the future.

2011-12 Blazer BASKETBALL Review With an inexperienced roster, key injuries and absences, the 2011-12 season for the Blazers ended 13-12 overall and tied for eighth place in the final MIAC standings with a 10-12 league record.

Nonetheless, the Blazers showed significant improvement in the latter part of the season. Despite the record, one cannot fail to acknowledge that the Blazers improved as the season went along. Senior Cassie Dorschner (Mantorville, Minn./Kasson-Mantorville) said the season was a battle. “The way we played the last part of the season was definitely an improvement. And that’s something the players that are coming back next year can build on.” In their final eight games, the Blazers won five. The streak was highlighted by the 54-50 win against St. Olaf, which was a MIAC playoff team. Coach Durbin hopes to carry over into the 2012-13 season the same efforts and success seen at the end of 2011-12. This goal is entirely possible given the

players include junior Whitney Canton (Pine Island, Minn./Pine Island), who averaged a team-best 10.3 points and 2.9 rebounds per game. Canton was selected to the MIAC AllConference team, and was named MVP for the Blazers.

Junior Jamie Wollin (Litchfield, Minn./Litchfield) averaged 5.8 points and 5.2 rebounds per game.

Return to Prominence
2012-13 Blazer Basketball Outlook
For the Saint Benedict basketball team, putting last season in the rear view and returning to the prominence that the program is accustomed to is the simple goal. To do that, they’ll look to a replenished roster that is finally healthy after suffering a myriad of injuries last season, but also to the experience gained from a core group of young players that earned valuable experience a year ago, filling in as the older players went down. “It comes back to two things, we’re healthier, and we’re more experienced than we were a year ago, because last year we were playing three first-year players pretty significantly on a team that wasn’t very healthy from Christmas on,” head coach Mike Durbin said. Entering his 27th season on the Blazer bench, Durbin has seen it all throughout his tenure. Entering the 2012-13 campaign it’s easy for him to see the advancements the team has made over the last year. “We’re, without question, deeper and more talented. I feel like we have at least 12 players that could help us if we needed them. So it excites me to get a group that, as coaches, we’ll have multiple options to be able to utilize.”

Seniors Morgan Dale and Hannah Hylla return for their final season after missing large parts of last season, while fellow seniors Whitney Canton and Jamie Wollin bring another level of experience after shouldering the load last season. Canton is the leading returning scorer, averaging 10.3 points per game in an All-MIAC junior season, while Wollin added almost six points per game, and the pair brings the most starting experience back from last season. “Having Hannah and Morgan back healthy, just having them back in our program is very much like having experienced recruits,” Durbin said. “So we know they’re both very capable players that are going to play a lot. And then you have an upper class group with those two and then Whitney and Jamie who have played on championship teams and contributed on championship teams. I’m sure they would like to finish their senior year with something similar.” Add to that a pair of dynamic juniors in Tish Alexander and Brianna Barrett, who each played nearly 20 minutes a night last season while appearing in all 25 games, and you have a very solid group with plenty of experience. Barrett scored 10.0 points per game as a sophomore, while Alexander connected on a team-leading 43% of her three-point shots. Experience not just on the floor, but in a new system that had a definite learning curve, will carry over throughout the line-up into this winter. “I think we all took our lumps last year with a couple things offensively, new things we added and implemented,” Durbin said. “Injuries forced us to go younger and less experienced. All that experience that Emily Lueck, Jessica Fischer, and Elena Koch got the last third of the season is just so evident in the way they’re playing in the preseason with their confidence level and their understanding of what we’re trying to accomplish at both ends of the floor.” Part of a deep sophomore class, Lueck, Fischer and Koch all found themselves thrust into major roles in their first year, averaging double-digit minutes by the end of the season. Lueck played in all 25 games, while Fischer and Koch each appeared in the starting line-up throughout the year. Building on the experience gained by the young players, and infusing the retuning talent from the veterans will be what makes the difference this season, as the Blazers look to erase the memory of last season, and return to the top of the MIAC. “Last year I believe was an aberration, but we have to go back that up now,” Durbin said. “We’re in a position - from my perspective - that I can’t wait to play again because I’ve thought enough about last year that I’m ready to get excited about something new and better.”
