STM celebrates final signings of the school year

RAPID CITY, S.D. –  It was the perfect ending to another successful year for St. Thomas More athletics.

Last week, eight student-athletes announced their plans to compete at the next level.

The eight signings will be split into two segments which will run on Monday and Tuesday.


Jed Sullivan, Mount Marty University, Baseball

Jed Sullivan plans to play baseball at Mount Marty University in Yankton.

Sullivan is still recovering from a knee injury so he won’t be able to play for Post 22 this summer.

But overall, he has a .366 career batting average for the Hardhats.

Once healthy, he plans to play in the outfield for the Lancers.

“I just thought that Mount Marty would be the best decision for me to go play baseball,” said Jed Sullivan. “I was very fortunate enough that they didn’t recruit any other outfielders this year. I was the only one. I’m really happy that I’ll have my shot in a couple of years to start and we’ll see where that goes.”




Carlie Schlosser, Mount Marty University, Track and Field

Carlie Schlosser is also heading to Mount Marty University in Yankton.

She signed a letter of intent to compete in track and field for the Lancers.

Schlosser will specialize in pole vault where she finished sixth last year at the State ‘A’ track championships and recently place sixth at the Black Hills Conference track meet.

“Right away going to Mount Marty, the tour I loved it right away,” said Carlie Schlosser. “I loved the coaching staff and all the opportunities. So it was a pretty easy decision.”



Kellen Weber, South Dakota Mines, Football

Meanwhile, a pair of athletes from STM plan to play football at the college level.

Kellen Weber signed a letter of intent to attend South Dakota Mines.

Weber played several positions for the Cavaliers including running back, linebacker and quarterback.

Weber’s versatility made him a valuable target for the Hardrockers.

“When I was looking for different colleges and stuff that I was going to chose from, one of the things that was important to me was my academics,” said Kellen Weber. “When looking at Mines, they had a great academic program and talking with coach Flohr, he said that I would have an opportunity to come play football with them. So when I had the opportunity to get really strong academics and play for a great football team, it couldn’t be an easier choice.”



Trey Herrboldt, Black Hills State University, Football

Trey Herrboldt will also be playing in the Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference.

He signed a letter of intent to compete in football at Black Hills State University.

The STM wide receiver and defensive back used to live in Spearfish.

So he decided to return to the Northern Hills and play for the Yellow Jackets.

“It took me a little while to choose,” said Trey Herrboldt. “But there was some important factors that went into it. First off, academics. I want to go somewhere where academically I can be stable and everything. For football for the most part, it looked great. They run really good offenses.”
