BRAINERD — Five Central Lakes College football players and one Raiders volleyball player were named to the Minnesota College Athletic Conference Fall Elite Team Tuesday, Jan. 24.

Brennan Brocket, Joseph Hoeschen, Nicholas Korom, Paul Meyer and Jackson Owens of the CLC football team landed spots along with Megan Rinicker of the volleyball team.

The award recognizes student-athletes who combined academic and athletic performance through the fall 2022 season.

Honorees must have earned MCAC All-Academic honors as well as All-Division, All-Conference, All-Region or All-American honors in the sport of football, men's soccer, women's soccer, golf, or volleyball. There were a total of 60 student-athletes who earned this award.

Our newsroom occasionally reports stories under a byline of "staff." Often, the "staff" byline is used when rewriting basic news briefs that originate from official sources, such as a city press release about a road closure, and which require little or no reporting. At times, this byline is used when a news story includes numerous authors or when the story is formed by aggregating previously reported news from various sources. If outside sources are used, it is noted within the story.

Hi, I'm the Brainerd Dispatch. I started working a few days before Christmas in 1881 and became a daily paper two years later. I've gone through a lot of changes over the years, but what has never changed is my commitment to community and to local journalism. I've got an entire team of dedicated people who work night and day to make sure I go out every morning, whether in print, as an e-edition, via an app or with additional information at News, weather, sports — videos, photos, podcasts and social media — all covering stories from central Minnesota about your neighbors, your lakes, your communities, your challenges and your opportunities. It's all part of the effort to keep people connected and informed. And we couldn't do it without support.
