Paynesville Press - January 18, 2006

Glenz playing at Northern St.

By Michael Jacobson

amandaAmanda Glenz, a 2004 PAHS graduate, is a sophomore forward this winter on the Northern State University's women's basketball team. The Wolves won their first six games this season and are currently 9-3 overall and 1-1 in the Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference.

Glenz, a 5' 11" forward, has played in six games for the Wolves and is averaging 4.7 points per game despite playing only eight minutes per game on average. Twice in November she scored nine points in a game: first in a 75-53 victory over Dakota Wesleyan and then in an 82-39 victory over Iowa Wesleyan. So far, she has made 10 of 15 shots from the field.

Glenz, the daughter of Brad and Debbie Glenz of Paynesville, will travel with the Wolves this weekend to play at Concordia-St. Paul in St. Paul, Minn., on Saturday, Jan. 21, at 6 p.m. This is their closest game to Paynesville this season.

Glenz is majoring in elementary education at Northern State with a minor in special education.

Northern State competes in the NCAA Division II. It is located in Aberdeen, S.D.

Two other PAHS graduates also are members on Northern State athletic teams.

Adam Kampsen, also a 2004 PAHS grad, is a sophomore third baseman on Wolves baseball team. After leading the team in homeruns (13) and RBIs (45) last year, Kampsen, the son of Liza Kampsen of Paynesville, is a captain this year. The Wolves baseball team (19-24 last year) will start their 2006 season in March.

Brittany Lieser, a 2005 PAHS grad, is a 5' 7" outside hitter on the Wolves volleyball team, which went 15-16 this fall. Lieser, a first-year student at Northern State, redshirted this fall. She is the daughter of Bob and Diane Lieser of Paynesville and is majoring in criminal justice.
