La Crosse defenseman Frerks makes NCAA commitment
April 16, 2018
The La Crosse Freeze of the NA3HL are pleased to announce that defenseman Josh Frerks has committed to play NCAA Division III hockey for Becker College.
Frerks, 20, just completed his final season of junior hockey, which was cut short to a season-ending injury after appearing in just two games during the 2017-18 season.
The 6’2/195 lbs. native of Rochester, Minnesota, appeared in 20 games during the 2016-17 season and recorded 9 points.
Prior to playing junior hockey in the NA3HL, Frerks was a standout defenseman for three seasons with Rochester John Marshall High School in Minnesota
“Josh has overcome massive adversity this season with his injury. I am very excited to see him get this opportunity with a great college program and look forward to watching next season,” said Freeze head coach Jon Vaillancourt.
“We're extremely excited that Josh has chosen Becker to continue his hockey career as a student-athlete. Coach Valliancourt, the LaCrosse Freeze, and the North American league deserve all the credit in preparing him for the next level. We're looking forward to seeing Josh come to Becker this fall healthy and ready to contribute not only to our lineup, but our campus next season and years to come,” said Dale Adams, Becker College Assistant Coach.
