Bemidji State University senior softball pitcher Jessica Yost pitched all 14 innings and earned two wins in the circle to help the Beavers (24-15, 14-10 NSIC) sweep University of Minnesota Duluth, Tuesday afternoon.

Yost allowed just one run over both games and tallied 24 strikeouts to improve to 21-5 on the season, becoming the first-ever pitcher in program history to reach the 20-win mark.

The Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference has announced Bemidji State University’s Sarah Stram and Gena Adams to its list of 2017 Honor Student-Athlete and scholarship award winners.  The 16 NSIC member institutions nominate one male and one female student-athlete for the Britton and Kelly Awards. The nominees must meet the following criteria: a grade point average of 3.20 or better (on a 4.0 scale); evidence of academic excellence beyond the minimum grade point average (scholarship prizes and other academic recognition), evidence of participation in the life of the institution, and evidence of participation in at least two-thirds of the varsity events of the individual’s primary sport. The award is voted on by the NSIC Faculty Athletic Representatives.

Bemidji State University men’s golf coach Ekren Miller has announced the addition of Cole Johnson (West Fargo, N.D.), William Moore (Lakeville, Minn.), Brandon Olson (West Fargo, N.D.) and Tanner Sperling (Lakeville, Minn.) for the 2017-18 season. All four made commitments to attend Bemidji State during the NCAA’s regular signing period beginning April 12.

The addition of these four brings the Beavers’ incoming freshmen class to six following Ian Mackenzie-Olson and Aaron Schnathorst, who signed National Letters of Intent during the NCAA’s early signing period, Nov. 9-16.

The Bemidji Lumberjack tennis team traveled to Brainerd yesterday, and lost 7-0.  The Jacks are now 3-4 on the season, and travels to DL on Tuesday.

Miguel Sano was poked and prodded all last season because of his defensive weaknesses in the outfield and at third base, but the 260 pounder is flashing the leather on a much more consistent basis through 16 games this season.

Sano put his leather and arm on display a couple of times in Minnesota’s 8-1 win over the Rangers Tuesday night. He robbed Carlos Gomez of a bunt hit with a barehanded play in the first inning and later took a hit away from Mike Napoli on a diving play to his left.  

Sano made 15 errors in 42 games at third base in 2016 and so far in 2017 he has only two errors. His fielding percentage at the hot corner has gone up considerably, from .896 to .953.

He also went 3-4 at the plate with a double and an estimated 437-foot home run that started the Twins’ seven-run fifth inning.

--------------------------------------------------

After the best season of his career where he put up 69 points, (23 goals, 43 assists) Mikael Granlund was a ghost during the Wild’s first-round matchup with the St. Louis Blues.

Granlund didn’t light the lamp during in any game of the series and finished with just two assists.

On Tuesday, Wild head coach Bruce Boudreau and general manager Chuck Fletcher held a press conference to wrap up the 2016-17 season and Fletcher told reporters that Granlund was playing with a broken hand.

Granlund is a finalist for the Lady Byng Award which goes to the player who “exhibited the best type of sportsmanship and gentlemanly conduct, combined with a high standard of playing ability.”

Other notes from the press conference included Fletcher stating no “wholesale changes” will be coming in the offseason.
