Krejcik, Rogowski earn MJHL honors

TRAVERSE CITY — Traverse City goalie David Krejcik and forward Patrick Rogowski have earned Player of the Week honors in the Midwest Junior Hockey League.

Krejcik was named Goaltender of the Week for the third time after posting two shutouts last weekend over Detroit. On Friday night, Krejcik turned aside 33 shots and then kicked out 32 the following evening for his third and fourth shutouts of the season. The 19-year-old Czech Republic native leads all goaltenders with a 10-2-0-2 record, a 1.27 goals-against average and a .952 save percentage.

Rogowski, an 18-year-old forward from Pinckney, was selected Rookie of the Week after putting up a goal and three assists in last weekend’s two-game sweep of Detroit. Rogowski registered two assists Friday night and then added a goal and an assist in Saturday night’s game. He has nine goals and 19 points over 18 games.

Players of the week are voted on by league staff, coaches and general managers.

 

Volunteers needed for Turkey Trot

TRAVERSE CITY — Volunteers are needed to serve as road marshals for the sixth annual Traverse City Turkey Trot for Charities on Thanksgiving day.

Volunteer road marshals are asked be at Thirlby Field at 7:30 a.m. on Thanksgiving for a short instructional meeting, and then they will be directed to a designated intersection along the 5K and 5-mile race routes. Traverse City officials have provided maps and locations for barricades that will be put in place by the volunteers just before the race begins and then taken down and loaded onto a truck after the last runners finish. Race marshals’ duties will be completed by approximately 11 a.m.

For more information email volunteer@evugo.com.

The 5K run/walk and 5-mile flier races start and finish on Thirlby Field at 9 a.m. The courses run through downtown Traverse City. A year ago, 2,366 runners and walkers took part. This year’s field could be part of a Guinness World Record for the most runners competing at the same time. The record, titled “Most Participants in a Multi-venue Race,” will feature 20 races across 12 states. The combined number of participants will have to exceed 116,086 to break the record, currently held by Malaysia.
