MINOT, N.D. (MSU) – Following a 30-win season that saw the Beavers advance to the NSIC Tournament, five Minot State players earned honors for their all-around efforts as student-athletes. Seniors Jaycie Rostad and Leo Watson, along with juniors Taryn Bennett, Izzy Penner, and Gabi Dawyduk all were named to the 2023 College Sports Communicators Academic All-District Team for their standout performance both on the field and in the classroom for the Beavers. To be eligible for the All-District Team, a player must be in their second year with their respective Minot State team, must be a starter or major contributor for the team who has played in at least half of the team’s games, and must have at least a 3.5 cumulative GPA.
Rostad is a senior catcher and Corporate Fitness and Wellness Management major from Minot, North Dakota who hit .327 with 1 home run and 7 RBIs in 24 games this spring. Bennett is a first baseman and Exercise Science and Rehabilitation major from Sioux Falls, South Dakota who hit .274 with 1 home run and 19 RBIs in 51 games this spring. Watson is a shortstop and English Education major from Orangevale, California who hit .301 with 1 home run and 21 RBIs in 48 games this spring. Penner is an outfielder and Communication Sciences and Disorders major from Blumenort, Manitoba who hit .271 with 12 RBIs in 40 games this spring. Dawyduk is a pitcher and designated player and Communication Sciences and Disorders major from Winnipeg, Manitoba who hit .318 with 15 RBIs and was 3-1 with one save pitching in 16 games this spring. Each is now eligible to be named a CSC Academic All-American. The CSC Academic All-Americans will be named the first week of June.
MINOT, N.D. (MSU) – Coming off a stellar season that saw him lead Minot State’s prolific offense in runs batted in and stolen bases, Beaver second baseman Derek Kay was honored by the National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association (NCBWA) as he was named to the Second Team All-Central Region Team. The honor is the first for Kay, a senior from Prior Lake, Minnesota in his second season with Minot State. Playing in all 48 games for the Beavers this season, Kay hit .355, which was third-highest on the team. He hit 15 home runs, which was second on the team, led Minot State with 59 RBIs, and stolen a team-high 16 bases. He also had 11 doubles and 5 triples, giving him 7 triples for his two-year career which ranks him No. 2 all-time in that category. His 59 RBIs ranks No. 2 all-time for a single season, as do his 5 triples. Along with having a huge offensive impact, Kay also was a star in the field at second base as he had 91 putouts and a team-high 84 assists with just 7 errors all season for a .962 fielding percentage.
PUEBLO, Colo. (MSU) – A stellar year of competition wraps up this weekend and Minot State’s Leif Nelson looks to add one more memorable moment for the Beavers. Nelson heads to Colorado for the NCAA Division II Outdoor Track and Field National Championships, and the 2022 All-American from Devils Lake, North Dakota is poised to make history as he attempts to become Minot State’s NCAA National Champion. Nelson will compete in the javelin at nationals on Saturday, May 27, with the action beginning at 2:45 p.m. (MT). He heads into the championships with the fifth-best throw in the country this spring as he turned in an all-time Minot State record effort of 237 feet, 2 inches. That mark has him just 10 feet, 9 inches behind the national leader, Dejan Mileusnic from Fresno Pacific. A legitimate national title contender, Nelson also is in great position to bring home All-American honors for the second straight season with a strong performance Saturday. While the Beavers have yet to win an NCAA National Championship, they have earned All-American honors several times in track and field with Kirk Capdeville earning the program’s top NCAA finish as he was 5th in the 2014 outdoor pole vault. As for claiming national titles, the Beavers last individual national championship came in 2007 when Genevieve Binsfeld won the NAIA National Championship in the indoor 3,000 meters. The last men’s national champion was recent Minot State Athletic Hall of Fame inductee Travis Hanson who won the 2003 NAIA indoor triple jump National Championship.
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — The San Francisco Giants rallied to beat the Minnesota Twins 4-3 for their seventh win in eight games. Michael Conforto doubled to spark a slow-developing sixth-inning rally and hit the go-ahead two-run homer in the seventh for the Giants against Twins reliever Jorge López. Giants starter Alex Cobb improved to 4-1 by finishing seven innings for the third time in four starts this month. He worked around a two-run home run by Byron Buxton in the first inning and a solo shot by Michael Taylor in the fifth that gave the Twins a 3-0 lead. The Twins, who have been in first place in the AL Central for 53 of 55 days this season, lost for the sixth time in eight games. They have six or fewer hits in 10 of their 20 games in May.
Giants RHP Anthony DeSclafani (3-3, 3.09 ERA) takes the mound in the series finale this afternoon, opposite Twins RHP Joe Ryan (6-1, 2.25 ERA). Ryan, a San Francisco native, has completed at least six innings in all nine starts and allowed a total of five earned runs over his last five turns.
