BEMIDJI -- Sara Titera of Bagley placed 10th during Tuesday's Section 8A tournament at the Bemidji Town and Country Club and the sophomore punched her ticket to the state meet. In the team chase, Kittson County Central claimed the boys title while Badger-Greenbush-Middle River won the girls championship. BGMR shot 359 to take the crown, nipping Fosston by four shots.
BEMIDJI -- Most knowledgeable sports fans agree that the toughest professional championship to win is the Stanley Cup. After a rigorous 82-game regular season, 16 teams qualify for the playoffs but just making it into the postseason is not the goal. Players can take satisfaction in advancing deep into the postseason but unless you win four grueling series and hoist the Cup, the season ended in disappointment. A pair of NHL players with Bemidji ties have completed that journey and earned the right to have their names etched onto the Stanley Cup.

BEMIDJI -- During the past week the Bemidji baseball team improved from seventh place in Section 8-3A to second, as determined by the computer-generated QRF figures. Owning a top-four position in the final seedings is vital for a successful post-season run as the teams that hold those spots will earn a first-round bye, will be assured of a home game during Monday's action and will automatically advance to the double-elimination portion of the section tournament. "Right now we're seeded second and we want to stay where we are," said BHS coach Mike Fogelson. Monday at the BSU diamond the Lumb

BEMIDJI -- After playing well past 11 p.m. Friday in a 10-0 victory over Roseau the Bemidji baseball team had a relatively early wake-up call Saturday for the final game of the 15th annual Des Sagedahl Wooden Bat Classic. The Lumberjacks had to be at the field by mid-morning in order to be prepared for their 12:30 p.m. contest against Duluth East. The players arrived at the BSU diamond on time but when the game began coach Mike Fogelson could tell that they weren't at 100 percent efficiency.
BEMIDJI -- Thomas Revering has played baseball with Ryan Hirt since the classmates were 12 years old, and this spring the teammates have combined to give the Lumberjacks a solid battery. Friday night at the BSU diamond in the Des Sagedahl Wooden Bat tournament Hirt made his second home pitching appearance of the season and Revering had a ringside seat behind the plate. And Revering enjoyed what he was seeing as BHS downed the Greyhounds 4-1 and improved its overall record to 11-2. Hirt tossed a 3-hitter and Dan Johnson paced the offense with a triple and two singles as the Jacks dominated D
