Yost leads Bemidji St. at Northern Michigan tournament
MARQUETTE, Mich. — Jess Yost of the Bemidji State volleyball team was named to the Superior Open All-Tournament team after helping the Beavers compile a 2-2 record during last weekend’s event.
Yost, a freshman from Bemidji High School, led the Beavers in kills for the tournament with 42. Yost’s impact was felt in all four matches, but probably none more so than the final match, a 25-17, 26-24, 28-26 win over Lake Superior State.
Yost led the team with 15 kills, had an attacking percentage of .484 while committing no attacking errors. She also had 24 digs in BSU’s four tournament matches. Yost leads the team in kills with 88 with 2.93 kills per game and is fourth on the team in digs with 60.
After losing to Northern Michigan and defeating Quincy (Ill.) on Friday the Beavers split Saturday’s action.
Michigan Tech downed BSU 25-16, 25-16, 27-25 in the morning session but the Beavers bounced back to spill Lake Superior State.
Bemidji State compiled a 4-4 record during its 2013 non-conference schedule. The Beavers will open their NSIC action Thursday at St. Cloud (6-2). The home opener will be 4 p.m. Saturday against UMD (8-0).
Soccer remains unbeaten
MARQUETTE, Mich. — Abby Nyquist, Mary O’Brien and Bayley Ertl all scored in the first half and the defense made those goals stand up as the Beavers improved to 4-0 Sunday with a 3-1 win over Northern Michigan.
Sonja Barr stopped eight shots in the BSU net to post the victory.
O’Brien opened the scoring 13 minutes into the game when she converted a pass from Jessie Voeller.
At the 30-minute mark Nyquist notched her second of the season and with three minutes to play in the half Ertl found the net from just outside the crease.
Bemidji State will continue its NSIC campaign 1 p.m. Saturday when it hosts Minnesota St. at Chet Anderson Stadium.

GLYNDON — Emily Turner placed 25th during Friday’s women’s cross country meet hosted by MSU-Moorhead at the Ponderosa Golf Club.
