Swanville names Johnson, Koetter Athletes of the Month

  Swanville High School chose Austin Johnson and Stephanie Koetter as its February Athletes of the Month.

Johnson is a junior on the Swanville Bulldogs basketball team and is the team’s “utility” player.

“Austin plays all offensive positions, from point guard to center, and is our lock-down defensive player,” said coach Jay Loven. “We put Austin on the best player of the opposing team in order to force other players to handle and shoot the basketball. Austin is also our vocal leader on the team, constantly talking to the other players, keeping them focused on the task at hand.”

Johnson averages 7.7 points per game, 2.8 rebounds per game and 1.7 steals per game.

Koetter is a member of the Swanville Bulldogs girls basketball team and averaged 16.3 points and 10.4 rebounds per game in February.

“Steph has battled injuries this season, but always had a positive attitude when she was able to play,” said coach Aaron Gapinski.
