Joe Coleman of Hopkins has been selected as the Minnesota Associated Press Player of the Year for boys high school basketball.
Julie Friend has had the skills and the fundamentals of playing goalie down for a few years. Minding the net can be a mentally demanding experience, though, a process that required some self-discovery and a sharpened focus for Friend to reach an elite level.
