SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (MSU) – Two down, two to go. The Minot State softball team continued its march through the NSIC Tournament on Thursday as the Beavers jumped on top early and rolled to a 5-2 upset of 2nd-seeded Concordia, St. Paul. Sophomore Sara Van Wickler recorded two extra-base hits to help lead Minot State (24-18 overall) over the Golden Bears (37-14) for the third time this season. Junior Reegan Floyd (10-8) started in the circle and picked up the win for Minot State. The right-hander went seven innings, giving up two runs, both of them earned, on eight hits, allowing no walks and striking out three. Van Wickler’s two extra-base hits were the highlight of a 2-for-4 day that included two doubles and an RBI. Junior Abby Lohse put together a noteworthy day at the plate as well, going 1-for-4 with a home run and an RBI. Senior Taryn Bennett also contributed for the Beavers, putting together one hit in three trips to the plate while adding a triple. The Beavers got on the scoreboard first, starting in the third inning. Senior Lauryn DeGuzman came across to score the lone run of the inning for Minot State on an error and get the Beavers on the board. The Beavers then held the Golden Bears scoreless before expanding their lead in the fifth inning. The Minot State offense exploded for four runs, highlighted by a one-run home run off the bat of Lohse, which brought the score to 5-0 in favor of the Beavers. DeGuzman, Van Wickler, and Brooklyn Morrison also added an RBI each in the rally. Concordia Saint Paul put two runs on the scoreboard before the game was over, but Minot State still held on for the 5-2 win. With the victory, the Beavers advance to the NSIC Tournament semifinals and will play Minnesota Duluth today at 2:30 p.m. for a spot in the title game, and a shot at an automatic berth to the NCAA National Tournament.
JAMESTOWN, N.D. (NDHSAA) – Zack Volson, a junior at Drake-Anamoose High School was named the 2024-2025 North Dakota High School Activities Association and Farmers Union Insurance Distinguished Student. Interviews were held Wednesday, May 1 at Farmers Union Insurance Headquarters in Jamestown. Martin Bergstedt, of Enderlin High School was chosen runner up. The other finalists interviewed were:
Laela Jensen, Hettinger High School
Brooklyn Hager, Rugby High School
Scout Woods, Wahpeton High School
Sadie Aamodt, Larimore High School
The six finalists were selected from applications sent in by high school principals from across the state. The NDHSAA Distinguished Student program was developed to recognize deserving young people who are the “backbone” of interscholastic activities, not necessarily the leader, but the individual whose participation in high school activities strengthens the program for participants, the school and the community. Applicants are students entering their senior year. The student must be a participant as a player, manager, statistician or other role in at least one NDHSAA sponsored activity. The student must be a good citizen and role model to his/her peers as well as a contributor to his/her school and community.
The NDHSAA Distinguished Student recipient receives a Farmers Union Insurance sponsored $2,000 scholarship to the college of his/her choice. The NDHSAA Distinguished Student recipient will also participate in other activities such as serving as the NDHSAA spokesperson for High School Activities Month, promoting the values of activity programs and participating in awarding of trophies at major NDHSAA state contests. The runner-up will receive a $1,000 scholarship of his/her choice and other recognition in connection with NDHSAA events. The other four finalists receive a $500 scholarship to the college of his/her choice, publication in the NDHSAA Bulletin and other recognition in connection with NDHSAA events. All finalists will be featured in the NDHSAA’s “Parade of Champions” Productions shown on statewide television in March.
MINOT, ND – For the first time since the Minot Minotauros joined the North American Hockey League 13 seasons ago they will face Bismarck in the Central Division Final series. The Tauros and Bobcats have met in two previous playoff series, in 2015 and 2019. In both series the Tauros were the two seed in the Central Division playoff bracket and the Cats were the three seed giving the Tauros home-ice advantage. The Tauros swept both series. This year the Tauros will once again have home-ice advantage, this time as the first seed in the Central Division while the Bobcats finished second. The Tauros were 7-3-1 against Bismarck during the 2023-24 regular season with two of the losses coming on the final weekend of the regular season after the Tauros had clinched the Central Division regular season title. The first two games in the best-of-five series are tonight and Saturday here in Minot. Game three, and if necessary, game four are next weekend in Bismarck. A decisive game five would be here in Minot on Monday, May 13th.
