BEMIDJI — They come into this weekend’s North Star College Cup tournament as the underdogs. They’re the only unranked team in the four-team field, and are the only one that doesn’t have a winning record. Maybe it’s daunting, but the Bemidji State men’s hockey team has been here before. The Beavers were in virtually the same situation in last year’s tournament — unranked, more unheralded underdogs — but ended up winning the tournament anyway.
BEMIDJI — The Bemidji State men’s basketball team heads into this weekend looking for something it hasn’t achieved all season: a weekend sweep in conference play. BSU will face off with Winona State and Upper Iowa, its first meeting with each Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference foe this season. And while the Beavers haven’t earned a sweep yet this year, they believe that this could be the weekend that it happens.
DULUTH—The Bemidji State women's hockey team made some history this weekend. The Beavers' 2-0 win over Minnesota Duluth on Saturday afternoon not only gave them the two-game series sweep over the Bulldogs. It also gave them the overall season sweep over UMD for the first time ever. The Beavers (9-16-1, 6-13-1 WCHA) won all four games against the Bulldogs (17-7-2, 12-7-1 WCHA) this season, and have won five in a row dating back to last season's WCHA playoffs.
BEMIDJI — For Bemidji State hockey fans, the Ferris State Bulldogs are an awfully familiar sight to see at the Sanford Center. Perhaps painfully so. In each of the last two seasons since the WCHA realigned, the Beavers and the Bulldogs have faced one another in a first-round playoff series. And in each of those series, the Bulldogs bested the Beavers in two games — but not before a lengthy overtime session in the second game.
BEMIDJI — Even in the dead of winter, Bemidji-area natives are wild about the Minnesota Twins. That was evident Tuesday, as hundreds of them gathered at the Bemidji High School commons to see Twins manager Paul Molitor, rookie outfielder Byron Buxton, relief pitcher Casey Fien and television broadcaster Dick Bremer as part of the team’s annual Winter Caravan.
BEMIDJI—Bemidji State's Emeline Sevila and Ciara Brewster's first place finishes highlighted several strong performances for the Beavers as they hosted the Super 8 Open at the Gillett Recreation-Fitness Center on Saturday afternoon. Sevila, a junior transfer from Nimes, France, finished first in the long jump, leaping 17-01 1/2 inches for the win. Sevila also finished in second place in the 60-meter hurdles with a time of 9.72 seconds—a personal best.
BEMIDJI — After a 10-day, two-weekend road trip to Alaska, the Bemidji State men's hockey team might have been excused for allowing itself at least a period to shake off some rust. The Beavers had taken seven of eight conference points, and with a nonconference series against Division I newcomers Arizona State on the docket, it was unclear how BSU would respond. It didn't take long for them to find out that they meant business.
BEMIDJI — It gets cold in Northern Minnesota. Of course, Greg Powers and the rest of the Arizona State hockey team know that — who doesn’t? — but people around Tempe have been joking about it all week. Likely while wearing shorts and a polo shirt outdoors. “We’ve been laughing about that one for about a week now, once we saw the forecast,” Powers said, referring to the balmy highs of four degrees above and nine degrees below that await his team on the days of their games against Bemidji State today and Saturday, respectively.
BEMIDJI — The nonconference season is over for the Bemidji State women’s hockey team. The Beavers finished 5-0-1 in against out-of-conference opponents, capped by last week’s sweep of Lindenwood on Wednesday and Thursday. But the competition gets just a little steeper this weekend, as the No. 6-ranked Beavers host No. 2 Wisconsin to start up WCHA play again today and Saturday. The puck is set to drop at 2:07 p.m. both days at the Sanford Center.
BEMIDJI — The scoreline might not have indicated it, but the Bemidji High School wrestling team wasn’t so far behind Frazee on Tuesday night at BHS. Although the Hornets, the No. 3 team in Class A, defeated the Lumberjacks 44-16 during their dual meet, the quality of the matches doesn’t exactly match what ended up being a fairly lopsided final score. “I thought we wrestled very well,” BSH head coach Rance Bahr said. “There were a couple of matches where we were close but our guys got caught out of position. And a team like that will take advantage of your mistakes.
