Metro right on FLC’s preseason heels

Skyhawks’ Schreibvogel is named RMAC Preseason Player of the Year
Dana Schreibvogel, who helped the Fort Lewis College women’s basketball program to its first ever RMAC Tournament title last year, was named the RMAC Preseason Player of the Year on Tuesday. Her team was picked to win the RMAC.
Matt Morris was the Skyhawks’ lone representative on the All-RMAC Preseason Team. He’ll guide an FLC men’s basketball team with seven newcomers this season.

One thing left for Kellogg ...

In six years, Mark Kellogg is one goal shy of accomplishing just about everything possible on the Division II landscape.
RMAC regular-season titles?
He’s got three of those from the now-defunct West Division, and he’s won the Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference outright three times.
RMAC Shootout titles?
He’s got one of those, his first tournament title coming last year.
Central Region titles?
He’s got one of those, too, in 2009-10.
NCAA Division II titles?
That’s the missing link, but he has taken the Skyhawks to that promise land, only to finish runner-up two years ago.
In his first head coaching job, Kellogg is 147-41 overall (.782), 97-20 in the RMAC and has taken FLC to the postseason four consecutive years.
This year, his Skyhawks start the season ranked nationally in at least two major publications: fifth in the Women’s Division II Bulletin and sixth in the USA Today/ESPN Division II Top 25 Poll.
