BEMIDJI -- With under a week to go until its Sept. 5 season opener at Winona State, the Bemidji State football team is still trying to get its depth chart sorted out. The Beavers, who lost quarterback Lance Rongstad to graduation, are still trying to sort out who will be taking snaps when they travel to Winona next Thursday. Last week, senior Alex Hass, redshirt freshman James Shields and transfer junior Adam Ragsdale were the three competing for the starting slot but BSU offensive coordinator Eric Medberry said they had whittled it down to two.

BEMIDJI -- With one full week of practice complete and a full-pads, full-contact scrimmage under their belts, the Bemidji State football team has a slightly better picture of who will be replacing quarterback Lance Rongstad when the season starts Sept. 5 at Winona State. Emphasize on the word "slightly." "Things are starting to sort themselves out," BSU offensive coordinator Eric Medberry said Thursday. "I told the boys, today was separation day. We hope going into the weekend we can get the two-deep formulated and go from there."
The Western Collegiate Hockey Association is changing dramatically next season, losing eight teams and adding six more. With that in mind, The Pioneer will be giving readers an in-depth look at the WCHA this summer so fans can familiarize themselves with the new members (and become reacquainted with the old ones) before the season begins in October. Our series continues this week in Michigan's Upper Peninsula with the Lake Superior State Lakers.
BEMIDJI -- To say the 2012 season disappointed Wayne Chadwick would be an understatement. "Had you told me at this time last year that we would have finished tied for last in the conference, I'd have laughed at you," Chadwick said. "It was pretty disappointing for all of us." The Bemidji State volleyball team won just two matches in the Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference and finished with an overall record of 4-23. Nineteen times last year the Beavers were swept in straight games. At one point they lost 13 straight matches, going more than a month between wins.
BEMIDJI -- Bemidji's first professional sports franchise will have plenty of local flavor. The city's yet-to-be-named Indoor Football League team was officially introduced to the community Wednesday at the Sanford Center. The team will begin play in February. "I may be from out of town, but don't get it wrong, this is Bemidji's team," co-owner and president Chris Kokalis said. "We want to make sure the community is involved in all aspects."
