Former Angels girls basketball standout player, Olivia Braun, has made a name for herself at Wester Illinois University.
During her two seasons with the Toledo University women's basketball team, Olivia Braun added some monster numbers to the Rockets' record books, with numbers along the lines of 25 points, 11 assists, or 39 rebounds. However, Toledo simply wasn't a great fit for Braun, who earned third-team Associated Press All-State honors as a senior for St. Catherine's High School in 2013. During her senior year as an Angel, she averaged 12.2 points, 6.7 rebounds, 5.8 assists, 3.3 blocks, and 1.8 steals per game.
The 6-foot-2 forward has a more deliberate and uptempo attack that fits much better with her new team at Western Illinois University. "It just didn't work out fitting in with their program [at Toledo]," said Braun. "And then my AAU coach introduced me to Western Illinois and I knew another player, Morgan Blumer, who was going to Western Illinois. I played with her in AAU."
And what a rewarding journey it has been for her so far. She has moved into the starting lineup for WIU, and even started the game when they defeated IUPUI at Sioux Falls, in the Summit League championship game this past year. It was the first conference championship since WIU's 1994-1995 season. More impressively, the Leathernecks secured their first NCAA Tournament berth in the history of the university.
Braun seems to be the difference since making the starting lineup. "Olivia has been a huge part of this," said Coach J.D. Gravina. "We've always been a good offensive team, but we've always struggled defensively." Braun is definitely a force on the defensive end. She ranks 11th nationally in Division 1 in blocked shots (88) and 17th nationally in blocked shots per game (2.8). She also averages 8.2 points, 5.0 rebounds and 2.5 assists.
Braun will have one more year of eligibility next year, in which she will look to continue to dominate on both ends of the floor. She is playing in her preferred wide-open offense for a team that averages more than 80 points per game, and she is playing for a team that she has helped transform into a winner.
Keep an eye out for Olivia and the WIU Leathernecks during next year's basketball season. She is playing great and making her Angel family proud!
Mara Lake left, and Ethan Letsch.
Wednesday was National Letter of Intent Signing Day for soccer and football high school athletes. St. Catherine's had two of their own Angels sign commitments for the Fall of 2017.
St. Cat's Senior Mara Lake signed her letter to play soccer at Marian University in Fond Du Lac. The Sabres compete in the Northern Collegiate Athletic Conference and finished this past season with a 5-12 record overall and a 3-7 conference record.
The women's soccer season is in the fall at the collegiate level. So Lake will already be in shape once the Angel season is over when she heads to Fond du Lac in the fall.
Lake came up to the varsity squad at the end of her sophomore year when the Angels qualified for the WIAA State Tournament. She has worked very hard during her career over coming two ACL injuries.
Had a strong junior season for the Angels with four goals and 12 assists.
Ethan Letsch, who played on both sides of the football all four seasons for Dan Miller will play for Hillsdale College located in Hillsdale, MI. Letsch will most likely play on the defensive side of the ball for the Chargers.
Letsch was part of three MCC Championship teams in his four seasons with the Angels. This past season he helped lead St. Cat's to an 8-3 overall record and a 6-1 conference mark. The Senior Linebacker led the Angels into Level II of the WIAA Football playoffs where they lost a heartbreaker to eventual state runner-up Cedar Grove 43-40.
This past fall Letsch was named to the All-Metro Classic Conference Defensive Team at Inside Linebacker. He was also recognized as 2nd Team All Racine County at Linebacker.
Letsch, and outstanding student was named to the Wisconsin Football Coaches Association All-Academic Team and also earned the Angels team Sportsmanship Award.
In four years with St. Catherine's Letsch had 146 solo tackles, 117 assisted tackles, 23 tackles for loss, eight sacks, six forced fumbles, five interceptions (two for touchdowns) and one safety.
