Sussenguth to play at Southwest Minnesota State


After three years on the Willmar Cardinal varsity and two with the Ridgewater College Warriors, Casey Sussenguth leaves town next fall to attend Southwest Minnesota State University.

"I really wanted to play at the next level," said Sussenguth, who averaged 20.6 points, 9.6 rebounds and 4.0 assists this season. "It's a great conference (the NSIC is Division II), and I know it will be a challenge, but I'm looking forward to it."
