Jason Herter, the UMD men’s hockey team associate head coach, has had a pretty good spring.
First, in April, his Bulldog team won their second straight national championship. Then last weekend Herter, of Hermantown, and his partner, Kaj Doerring of Chanhassen, Minn., won the City Auto Glass Walleye Classic fishing tournament on Lake Vermilion.
The pair weighed just four fish that totaled 12.51 pounds, but that included the biggest fish of the tournament, a walleye that weighed 9.12 pounds. The team took home the $15,000 first prize.
