Andrea (Ellanson) Carlson, Kelly Gleave, Brad Huse and his 2002-03 men’s basketball team will be inducted into the Jamestown College Athletic Hall of Fame as part of homecoming weekend on Saturday.
The ceremony will be held at 9 a.m. as part of the Homecoming Athletic Hall of Fame breakfast in Level Two of the Nafus Center. The event is open to the public. Cost is $8 at the door.
Huse led the Jimmies to five Dakota Athletic Championships during his tenure at the school, compiling a 184-60 mark in his eight years from 1997-2004. He was also the school’s athletic director from 2000-04.
The Jimmies went to the NAIA national tournament four times under Huse, who was named the DAC Coach of the Year three times.
He is currently the head coach at Division I Montana State.
Members of the 2002-03 team, which won the DAC title that season, include Jonathan Castillo, Benny Fragela, Eric Holmstadt, Charles Jones, Chris Jorgensen, Clyde Keith, Boe Meredith, Randy Randle, Imran Sufi, Jeremy Wallner, Brian White, Eddrin Williams and national player of the year Brandon Wilkens.
Assistant coaches were Jim Zimmerman and Chad Frandson.
Carlson, a 1994 graduate, still stands as the all-time leading scorer for the Jimmie women’s cross country team. She earned all-conference, all-district and an All-American honors during her career. She also ranks in the top 10 in school history in the 3,000, 5,000 and 10,000 meter runs for JC track.
She presently lives in St. Michael, Minn., and is a first and second grade teacher at Hanover Elementary School.
Gleave, a 1973 graduate, was a multi-sport standout at JC. He started for three years as the Jimmies’ starting quarterback, four years as a point guard on the basketball team and three years as a second baseman for the baseball team.
Gleave has taught math at Stanley High School for 30 years, coaching football, basketball and Legion baseball during that time.
