JCC's Jessica Christoffer (right) with WEM/JWP’s Tierney Winter, Esko’s Kailee Kiminski and
Gov. Mark Dayton Friday.

Jackson County Central freshman Jessica Christoffer was one of three student athletes honored by Governor Mark Dayton Friday for their outstanding sportsmanship at the state Class A girls cross country meet earlier this month.

Governor Dayton welcomed Christoffer, as well as Kailee Kiminski, a senior from Esko High School and Tierney Winter, a junior from Waterville-Elysian-Morristown, to the Governor’s Residence for lunch. They were joined by their coaches and families.

“Like their parents and coaches, I am very proud of these three tremendous young women,” said Governor Dayton. “Their outstanding character, integrity, and sportsmanship are an example for all athletes, and all Minnesotans.”

At the state meet, Winter and Kiminski saw Christoffer fall to the ground about 100 yards from the finish line. The two stopped to help Christoffer up and began to run, arm in arm once she was on her feet.

The three crossed the finish line together in an outstanding display of character and good sportsmanship.

Due to national rules that prohibit competitors from assisting other runners, the athletes were disqualified, but that does not diminish from their tremendous act of sportsmanship. A meet official, who was with Jessica in case medical assistance was needed, informed the other runners that offering aid would violate the rules, yet they didn’t hesitate to assist Jessica in finishing the race.

All cross country coaches are aware that athletes cannot assist others physically during races, whether teammates or opponents. This rule is based on fairness and the belief that each competitor must complete the course on their own, with no physical assistance.

history and went on to win the NJCAA Region XI championship earning a trip to the NJCAA Division II national tournament.

The Laker softball program has a notable history and tradition that Christopher believes he can rebuild.

“I am happy to have the opportunity to bring this program back to relevance in the Iowa Community College Athletic Conference,” Christopher said. “I look forward to the challenges that lie ahead. My goal is to build a program where our athletes find excellence on the field as well as in the classroom.”

Iowa Lakes softball has most recently been at the top of the ICCAC in 2010 when they finished third in the national tournament while compiling a 61-11 record. The Lakers averaged more than 50 wins per season from 2004-2010. Since 2006, Iowa Lakes Softball has had 19 All-Americans.

“We are excited to add Corey to our staff as the head softball coach,” commented Larson. “He brings a wealth of knowledge of the sport of softball. He is also an outstanding recruiter. He cares about student athletes and getting the right ones on campus. I’m anxious to see the improvement in our softball program.”

Christopher obtained a master’s degree in Exercise and Sport Psychology from Minnesota State University, Mankato. He received his undergraduate degree from Southwest Minnesota State University in 1993 with a Bachelor of Science in Language Arts Education and Coaching.

Christopher will also be serving in the role of Sports Information Marketing for Iowa Lakes.
