Peter Ragen (league MVP) was the only senior on the Dubuque squad.  Of course, you never know who might not return next year.

Peter Ragen (league MVP) was the only senior on the Dubuque squad.  Of course, you never know who might not return next year.

Ragen was a fifth year senior so his departure was pretty much of a foregone conclusion.
It will probably be awhile before the plans of all the (regular) fourth year seniors on the various teams, who are eligible to return due to the Covid year waiver, are known. Lots of variables—cost of an additional year of school, number of credit hours needed, or whether or not a school has graduate programs are some—can effect a decision.
Dubuque is lucky because Ragen was the only either fourth or fifth year senior on the team. Every other player is still eligible to return next year, even without having to use the Covid year waiver/extension.

Early indications are that everyone is back next year.   Great season for Sparty--was a couple of possessions from beating Case Western, a team who now finds itself in the sweet 16.   UD should obviously be the ARC favorite in 22-23..

So, with some uncertainty, what I have heard about the following significant ARC players who are done: BV- Demers (played 5 years) and  Thompson.    Loras-  Navigato and McGowan  both fifth year seniors.    Coe- Kruse and possibly Robertson, Thrapp, Niemeier and Auen. 

Wartburg  no info but Olson, John, Roquet all fourth year seniors this year, would have Covid year.  NWU  young team, Gilder only 4th year senior.   Central loses its best player in Mauck, fifth year senior.

Evidently, first team All-Conference player Peter Lash of Nebraska Wesleyan decided to enter the transfer portal back in late April. However, upon reconsideration, he has now decided he will return to NWU to complete his degree and athletic eligibility.

Anybody know how Lash found his way from Charlotte, North Carolina to Lincoln in the first place?

15 years or so ago it was less common to see kids from many other parts of the country on conference rosters. Now days it seems normal to see kids from all over the place in our conference.  Would be  interesting to hear the story for Mr. Lash and his journey to Nebraska.

Back in the Dark Ages when I played at NWU, we had sizeable groups of kids from the suburbs of both Chicago and Denver as well as a nice amount from the Boston burbs. However, we had zero from North Carolina or anywhere close, and probably not more than 5 or so from the entire South/Southeast.

Dubuque, back in the late 80's and early 90's had a good chunk from about 50 miles east/west of the Mississippi of Iowa and Illinois kids as well as a good size of the roster from the Chicagoland area.  And they also had a recruiting hotspot in the New Orleans area.  Dave Crawford, among other New Orleans recruits stands out.  Dave was a 2 time conference MVP.

In the Dark Ages no one tweeted open letters that they were deciding to stay at their D3 school for another year either.  Times change.
