THIEF RIVER FALLS — Rain across Minnesota postponed most outdoor sporting events across the state on Thursday, but Bemidji and Thief River Falls decided to attempt at least one game of their scheduled doubleheader. The teams managed to get five innings in, and in the end it was the Lumberjacks who defeated the Prowlers 14-4 in a messy game — in more ways than one. “The conditions were not very good,” BHS head coach Mike Fogelson said.
BEMIDJI — The Bemidji High School boys tennis team keeps on winning. The Lumberjacks are now a perfect 12-0 in dual meets this season, after beating both Detroit Lakes and East Grand Forks in a triangular meet Tuesday night at BHS. “We had a good, solid day,” BHS head coach Mark Fodness said. “We had a little wind but otherwise it was a great day for us again.” The Lumberjacks beat Detroit Lakes 6-1 then topped East Grand Forks 7-0. And they did it without one of their top players, Garret Atteberry.
BEMIDJI -- Bemidji State’s games against North Dakota are always played to high-energy, capacity crowds, no matter the venue. It’s one of the reasons why BSU head men’s hockey coach Tom Serratore likes playing home-and-home series against that other team in green. “I really like the one-and-ones,” Serratore said Monday. “I like our fans having the ability to watch the game at home and if they want to make the road trip, it’s an easy one-for-one night.”
BEMIDJI — The mood in the dugout in between the games of Bemidji State’s baseball doubleheader against the University of Mary on Friday afternoon was noticeably different than it had been during the Beavers’ recent 14-game losing streak. “Oh yeah, it was really nice,” sophomore pitcher Terry Hadden said. “Everyone was up and happy.
NAPLES, Fla. — In some ways, the Western Collegiate Hockey Association women’s league is the same as it ever was — it boasts a national champion, a national semifinalist and three more 20-win teams. But in other ways, the league led by Aaron Kemp is already very different than the one he inherited as commissioner at this time last year. By the time the 2015-16 season rolls around, five of the eight schools in the league will have new head coaches since Kemp started in April 2014. Bemidji State’s Jim Scanlan and St.
Bemidji State softball player Lyndsey Peterson has been named to the All-NSIC Second Team, announced Wednesday by league officials. Peterson becomes the first BSU player to earn all-conference honors since 2009, when Mara Johnson was named to the All-NSIC Second Team. Peterson led the Beavers in several offensive categories this season including: batting average (.362), home runs (9), on-base percentage (.435), runs (27), RBI (30), doubles (16) and walks (17).
MOORHEAD — Despite losing the last six Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference games and missing out on qualifying for this week’s NSIC tournament, the Bemidji State softball team ended its season on a relative high note Monday, splitting its final two games of the season against Concordia College Moorhead. The Beavers won game one of the nonconference doubleheader 8-2 before the Cobbers rallied to take game two 8-5. BSU finishes with a final record of 18-30 — its best since 1998 when the Beavers won 25 games. The win snapped a six-game losing streak for the Beavers, which had lost both gam
BEMIDJI — It wasn’t quite what he’s used to back home in Arizona, but Bemidji State defensive back Kameel Al-Khouri was enjoying the spring temperatures Thursday night at Chet Anderson Stadium. “It’s actually really nice. I’ve been up here three years and this is by far the most amazing spring,” the junior from Glendale, Ariz., said following BSU’s annual Spring Green and White Game. “There’s usually snow everywhere and freezing, and the lake isn’t even thawed. It’s nice to see water out there this spring.” Al-Khouri, like the rest of his defensive teammates, was in a good mood.
BEMIDJI — Spring football in Bemidji is always an adventure. In 2013 the Bemidji State football team only practiced outside once — the day of its annual Green and White Spring Football game. The next season, the Beavers had plenty of practices outside, thanks to the new FieldTurf at Chet Anderson Stadium. However, a snowstorm on the day of the spring game cancelled the final scrimmage. Barring some natural disaster, that won’t be the case today. The Beavers are scheduled to play their Green and White Game at 7 p.m.
