Congratulations to our Hardware Hank “Nuts & Bolts” Athletes of the Week: Ashley Boen, senior, Thief River Falls volleyball and Nick Frandsen, senior, Totino-Grace football.
Name: Ashley Boen
School: Thief River Falls
Information: Ashley was an outside hitter for the past two seasons and was put at libero for the majority of her senior year to help her team. She now owns the Minnesota State High School Leagues record for most digs in a season with 907. She also holds the career digs record for Thief River Falls High School.
Name: Nick Frandsen
Information: Frandsen took advantage of the moment...or should we say both moments. He caught two tipped passes in the fourth quarter in the Eagles 28-21 win over St. Thomas Academy in the Class 4A Semifinals. The first was on defense as he intercepted a Cadets pass. The second, on the ensuing drive, was in the end zone and came from his own quarterback, which turned out to be the game-winning TD. He caught five passes for 111 yards and 2TD on the day.
