BEMIDJI -- Former Bemidji State football coach Jeff Tesch will retire this spring. Tesch and the university released a joint statement on Monday afternoon, stating they “have resolved their differences amicably and satisfactorily.” Tesch was removed from his head coaching job just before the 2016 season and put on a leave of absence after reports surfaced that he had used a racial slur during practice.
BEMIDJI -- All weekend, the Bemidji State baseball team found itself right there with Minnesota State Mankato during their Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference series. The Beavers had played well against the No. 19-ranked Mavericks on Friday, losing 2-1 and 11-6 in a doubleheader.
BEMIDJI -- The Bemidji State baseball team had prime chances to hand No. 19 Minnesota State an upset in their Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference twinbill Friday afternoon. In both games, the Beavers were tied with the Mavericks late. But in both games, the NSIC’s top team showed exactly why they’re nationally-ranked. The Mavericks beat the Beavers 2-1 and 11-6 to complete the two-game sweep in their doubleheader at the BSU baseball diamond.
BEMIDJI—Pitching has, at times, been a challenge for the Bemidji State baseball team this season, but that wasn't the case in Wednesday's Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference doubleheader against Minot State. Although neither of BSU's starters earned the win on the mound, BSU's pitching staff did enough to keep both games close and earn the series split. Minot won game one 5-2, but the Beavers took the nightcap 5-4.
BEMIDJI -- Spring games generally aren’t super-physical -- players and coaches usually don’t want to see anyone getting hurt. But the Bemidji State football team might take a slightly different philosophy when they play their annual Green and White spring game at 1 p.m. today at Chet Anderson Stadium.
BEMIDJI -- On the penultimate day of the college hockey season, members of the Bemidji State men’s hockey team got to take one final (metaphorical) victory lap for their successful 2016-17 campaign. Junior goaltender Michael Bitzer continued to rack up more awards, while senior forward Brendan Harms closed out his BSU career with one last one. On Friday, Bitzer was named a first-team All-American by the American Hockey Coaches Association while Harms won the 2017 Senior CLASS Award.
BEMIDJI—Tim Bellew will be glad to finally have a weekend off. Bemidji State's baseball coach has seen his team play almost non-stop since the season started in March. The Beavers made a long road trip, first to Missouri then Minneapolis, Texas, Oklahoma and Kansas before Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference play began. Since then, BSU has played nine conference doubleheaders in a two-and-a-half week span.
BEMIDJI -- The Bemidji State baseball team was disappointed after Thursday’s home opener against Concordia-St. Paul. The Beavers scored just five runs over the course of those games and lost 6-3 and 13-2. On Saturday, BSU didn’t let that offensive slump continue.
When news that North Dakota was dropping its women’s hockey program was announced Wednesday afternoon in Grand Forks, N.D., it hit the hockey community hard.
BEMIDJI -- The weather, much like Jess Yost’s game one pitching performance on Thursday afternoon, could be described in a word: Perfect. With temperatures in the mid-50s and sunny skies above her, Yost threw her first-ever perfect game in the opener of Bemidji State’s doubleheader against Minnesota Crookston. BSU won 8-0 in the five-inning first game and 3-1 in the nightcap as the Beavers swept the Golden Eagles in their Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference openers for both teams.
