Playing an increased role as the season progresses, Brianna Hersom has been solid when in goal all season for the Stillwater girls’ hockey team.

The junior turned away 17 shots in Stillwater’s 6-0 Suburban East Conference victory over Woodbury on Friday night. In addition to her shutout against the Royals, Hersom has allowed one goal in three other games and improved to 5-1 on the season after stopping 20 shots in Tuesday’s 8-3 victory over red-hot Forest Lake, which had won seven of its eight past games before falling to the Ponies.

Stillwater (9-4-0 SEC, 11-8-1) travel to Mounds View to face the conference front-runner on Saturday.

The Stillwater wrestling team showed signs of progress while placing second at Saturday’s Pony Stampede at Stillwater Area High School and Sebastian Dingle was one of five Ponies who went undefeated in three matches during the tourney.

Competing at 182 pounds, Dingle pinned all three of his opponents, a list that includes Sam Fryer of Chatfield, Luke Coutier of Bloomington Kennedy and Jason Carlson of North St. Paul. Christian Bahl, Austin Jordan, Grant Wohlwend and heavyweight Ryan Peltier were the other Ponies to post 3-0 records on Saturday to help the Ponies to a second-place showing behind Chatfield.

The Ponies (3-0 SEC, 8-13) travel to Park for an SEC dual meet tonight.
