Concordia alum leading college team


Michala Walther

Michala Walther is a sophomore guard on the St. Scholastica women’s basketball team and has assumed the role of the team’s leading scorer this year. That’s not much of a surprise considering the season she had last year as a freshman.

Walther, a 2015 graduate of Concordia Academy, headed into the Christmas break averaging a team-high 12.3 points per game. Her season-high for points in a game this season is 22, which she scored on Dec. 10 against Northland. She has reached double figures in points in nine of the Saints’ 11 games.

Walther is the only Saints player to have started all 11 games thus far and she leads the team in minutes played. She also leads in three-pointers made and steals.

A season ago, Walther was named the team’s rookie of the year after leading in three pointers, assists and minutes. She finished second in scoring, made field goals and steals and was third in free throws made, rebounds and blocks.

At Concordia Academy, Walther was all-state honorable mention as a senior and earned all-conference honors three times. She was a two-time team MVP, finished with more than 1,000 career points and also played volleyball and ran track for the Beacons.
