EMPORIA, Kan. (MSU) – The first-ever trip to the nationals for Minot State freshman Jasiah Hambira provided a successful
finish to a stellar season. Hambira cleared his opening height of 6 feet, 8 inches on Friday, but did not advance any further and finished 14th in the nation to earn 2nd Team All-American honors at the NCAA Division II Outdoor Track & Field Championships hosted by Emporia State. An incredible finish to the year for Hambira who in his debut collegiate season won the NSIC Championship in the high jump earlier this month clearing 7 feet, 0.25 inches and set the all-time outdoor school record in the event at Minot State. That after he set the NCAA Division II-era school record in the indoor high jump during the winter for the Beavers, as well. Hambira was one of just four freshmen to qualify for nationals where four of the qualifiers also failed to clear the opening height of 6-8. Jaivon Harrison from Grand Valley State won the national title in the event by virtue of fewer overall misses as he and Hamdi Ali from West Texas A&M both cleared 7-3.25 in Friday’s competition. Hambira becomes Minot State’s fifth NCAA track and field All-American, joining Leif Nelson who was an All-American in 2022 and 2023, Cody Schmidt in 2015, and Kirk Capdeville in 2014.
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Alex Kirilloff hit a three-run homer in the bottom of the eighth inning to lead the Minnesota Twins to a 5-3 victory over the Texas Rangers on Saturday. Kirilloff, who also hit a go-ahead home run in the Twins’ series-opening victory over the World Series champions on Friday night, drove a 1-0 pitch from David Robertson (2-2) into the bullpen in left-center, helping Minnesota win its fourth straight game. After a 7-for-59 skid dropped his batting average to .202, Kirilloff has rallied the past eight days, going 5 for 16 with three home runs. It was just the second multi-hit game of the season for Kirilloff, who also singled and scored leading off the seventh inning. Cole Sands (2-0) pitched two perfect innings to earn the victory. Jhoan Duran worked a 1-2-3 ninth for his sixth save. Michael Lorenzen pitched six strong innings for the Rangers, who have lost six straight and 12 of their last 14 games. Lorenzen gave up one run on three hits over six innings.
Twins RHP Pablo López (4-4, 4.72) will try to bounce back from his worst start of the season, when he gave up seven earned runs in five innings in a 12-3 loss to the Nationals on May 20. The Rangers have not named a starter.
