MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - The Minnesota Twins are relieved that prized center field prospect Byron Buxton only has a concussion following a violent outfield collision with a teammate.
 
     In Buxton's first game for Double-A New Britain on Wednesday, Buxton suffered a head injury bad enough to knock him unconscious for about 10 minutes. He ran into right fielder Mike Kvasnicka after both of them ran full speed for a fly ball in the fifth inning.
 
     Twins general manager Terry Ryan said on Thursday that the scary situation "turned out about as good as you could ever hope." Ryan happened to be at the game and visited Buxton in the hospital after he was taken there for further evaluation.

ELMHURST, Ill. - The North Dakota State University women's soccer team has been picked to finish third in The Summit League's preseason poll released yesterday by the league office. Reigning league champion Denver was selected as the preseason favorite in a vote of the league's nine head coaches.

The Bison return nine starters from last year's team that posted a 9-10 overall record and advanced to The Summit League tournament championship match. Three all-league honorees return to the pitch for NDSU including Freshman of the Year, Lauren Miller. Miller was second in The Summit League with 11 points and five goals in seven league matches. Anisha Kinnarath had 21 points last season, including eight in league contests, while goalkeeper Sierra Bonham posted a 0.84 goals-against average (GAA) vs. league opponents.

South Dakota State was picked second after finishing with a 6-1-0 league mark last season. A pair of all-league performers return for the Jackrabbits in goalie Nicole Inskeep and defender Dani Patterson. Inskeep was second in the league with a 0.57 GAA against league opposition while Patterson led a backline that produced nine shutouts.

CHARLESTON, S.C. - North Dakota State's John Crockett was named to the 2014 College Football Performance Awards (CFPA) watch list for all-purpose backs announced yesterday.

Crockett, a senior from Minneapolis, ranked fifth in the Missouri Valley Football Conference with 106.6 all-purpose yards per game last season.  He was NDSU's primary kick returner the second half of the season and averaged 26.2 yards over 11 kickoff returns including a career-long of 52 yards against Illinois State.

Crockett has charted back-to-back 1,000-yard rushing seasons in his first two years at North Dakota State.  He ran for 1,277 yards and 11 touchdowns while averaging 6.7 yards per carry in 15 games last year.  He led the Bison with 1,599 all-purpose yards including six pass receptions for 34 yards.

Crockett is also on the CFPA Running Back Watch List. The goal of College Football Performance Awards is to provide the most scientifically rigorous conferments in college football. Recipients are selected exclusively based upon objective scientific rankings of the extent to which individual players increase the overall effectiveness of their teams. Twenty-eight CFPA winners have been first-round NFL Draft selections.

The Minot State University football team reported to campus Wednesday afternoon to begin preseason camp today.

After a day to get situated that included multiple meetings and the team's media day, the players and coaches got out onto the practice field for the first time this year.

Despite multiple changes occurring in the team's offseason, the group is optimistic of what's to come during camp and the season.

Much of the excitement and energy the program and players have heading into camp can be credited to Coach Hughes and the coaching staff around him. And while there may be many new faces out on the practice field, Hughes said one thing will remain constant as the team moves forward into camp and even further in the future: learning fundamentals.
