With Fenske in the lineup, the Coyotes won three North Central Conference championships, two North Central Regional titles and a national championship in 1997. South Dakota placed third at nationals in 1998 and finished no lower than ninth during Fenske’s four seasons. Individually, Fenske placed in the top 25 at all four national meets. His best finish was seventh in 1997.

    Dr. Fenske attended USD for five years. He graduated from Northwestern Health Sciences University in 2003. He is the owner of Kingsway Chiropractic in Lakeville, Minn.

    Jim Glogowski, football (1992-95)

As a senior in 1995, he was named North Central Conference Most Valuable Linebacker after leading the Coyotes with 91 tackles including 21 for loss and an 8-3 record. Glogowski was a four-year starter at USD. He played strong safety as an underclassman before transitioning to linebacker as a junior.

The conference title ended North Dakota State’s 13-year reign on top of the standings. Senior Matt Hoyt was named NCAA Division II Male Athlete of the Year for Outdoor Track after placing in the top four in three distance events at nationals.
