Tuesday, January 14, 2003
BEMIDJI, MINN. - Junior middle blocker Christel Berube (Fisher, Minn.) and freshman defensive specialist/outside hitter Lindsey Bromenshenkel (Sauk Centre, Minn.) have committed to play volleyball for the 2003 season, said head coach Kim Falkenhagen.

“ Berube will contribute in the middle with not only her skill but her desire to play,” said Falkenhagen.

“Bromenshenkel is going to be one to watch because she practiced with the girls this spring. She works very hard and gives 100% in everything that she does.”

At Northland Community College, Berube played two years of volleyball where she was named NJCAA Division III All-American Honorable Mention as a sophomore. She was recognized on the Minnesota Community College Conference First Team All-Northern Division and All-State First Team in 2002. In 103 games last year, she posted 400 kills, 180 blocks and 24 digs. The two-time MCCC player of the week finished her two year career as Northland’s all-time leader in kills and blocks. At Fisher High School, Berube was a four-year letterwinner in volleyball and an all-state and three-year all-conference performer.

At Sauk Centre High School, Bromenshenkel was part of a volleyball squad that took third in state competition in 2000 and sixth in 1999 for Class 2A. She was a member of the state qualifying softball team for the 1999 season. The valedictorian of the 2001 class was a participant on the volleyball, basketball and softball teams. Her sister, Tara Oberg, was a tennis player at Bemidji State.

Bemidji State opens up 2003 action with a four-game spread at the MSU-Moorhead Tournament, Aug. 29-30 in Moorhead, Minn. BSU is coming off an 11-17 season in which it placed sixth in the Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference with an 8-10 mark.
