DETROIT LAKES — Despite the absence of head coach Nile Relay, the Bemidji boys swimming and diving team did well in the preliminary races of the Section 5A meet Friday in Detroit Lakes. The Lumberjacks had 10 swimmers qualify for today’s finals. “As the girls head coach just hanging out, it looked like they did pretty well,” BHS girls’ swimming coach Woody Leindecker said. Leindecker was helping supervise the team, as Relay is in the hospital after a medical emergency.

The BSU Beavers faltered in the second half once again, as they had a 39-34 lead at halftime. However, Minot (14-12, 9-11 Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference) scored 50 points in the second half, shooting just under 70 percent.

BISMARCK, N.D. — Shane White had 12 points and seven rebounds, leading Bemidji State for each category in the men’s basketball team’s 75-66 loss to the University of Mary on Friday at the McDowell Activity Center. Although the Beavers (8-15 overall, 4-15 Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference) never led the game by more than three points, they hung in with the Marauders until U-Mary took the lead with 15 minutes to go in the game and never looked back. Cody Risseeuw sunk 11 points for Bemidji State, while DJ Anderson contributed 10. Jaycob Velasco put up 22 for the Marauders.
The Bemidji boys swimming and diving team took second place with 427 points in its home invitational Saturday at Bemidji High School.

COLERAINE — The BHS skiing teams traveled to the Mt. Itasca Ski Club in Coleraine on Saturday, with each team coming in third in its respective race. The meet was scheduled to be Bemidji’s invitational, but it was moved due to inadequate snow conditions. “We lost that home-course advantage,” Bemidji coach Mark Walters said, disappointed that the skiers were unable to benefit from their home meet. Jenna Truedson led the BHS girls, coming in second place with a time of 36:34 and contributing 99 of Bemidji’s 385 point total. “Jenna’s been running strong all year,” Walters said.
