The Bemidji State University tennis team's 2017 season came to an end Saturday, falling to Winona State University, 5-2, in the quarterfinal round of the  Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference Tournament. The Beavers' end their season with a program record 12 wins (12-6) and went 6-5 in league play.

Despite opening a 2-1 lead in doubles play, the Beavers saw Winona State  take the first four singles matches to steal the match 5-2, and move on to face St. Cloud State University in the semifinal round.

After the tandem of Ariadna Lopez-Simo and Hannah Alme topped their doubles contest, 8-3, in the No. 2 slot, BSU's Breann Walsh and Sabrina Okeson posted an 8-4 win in the No. 3 match and Morgan Opp and Zoe Lindren earned an 8-6 victory at No. 1 to give the Beavers a 2-1 advantage.

As singles play got underway, Opp lost 6-4, 6-3 to the Warriors' No. 1 singles player, Kaisey Skibba.

WSU took a 3-2 lead when Kendra Kappes defeated Alme in the No. 4 position, 6-1, 6-2, and put the Beavers on the ropes as Tayla Card earned a No. 5 singles win over Claudia Bellew.

The Warriors clinched the victory with a win at No. 6 singles. Katie Scruggs posted a 6-3, 6-2 victory over Brooke Mimmack to give WSU five of nine possible points.

Junior Katy Woelfel fired a seven-over-par 79 Sunday to finish the Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference Championships with 83-78-79--240 (+24) and place ninth individually. Bemidji State University placed 10th in the tournament.

Woelfel led the Beavers form wire to wire and her 79 was part of a team effort that trimmed 19 strokes from its round two score (373) and finish the final day of competition with a 354, climbing over Minnesota State University Moorhead, which posted a 376 Sunday, and into 10th place.


Senior Alex Coleman broke a four-year-old triple jump mark to lead the Bemidji State University track and field team at the Lyle Hokanson Classic.

Coleman stretch the tape to 36 feet, 6.5 inches to surpass Kaneeshia Johnson's 2013 (34-4 1/4) record and place eighth in the meet. The jump extended the multi-event athlete's season best by more than five inches and ranks her 14th among her NSIC outdoor counterparts.

Coleman also placed ninth in the 200-meter dash with a season-best time of 60.67 and teamed up with Christa Benson, Madison Kealy and Kristen Petron to place seventh in the 4x400-meter relay. The quartet posted a time of 4:26.37.

Benson was the only other BSU participant to record a top ten finish. The sophomore clocked a 68:06 in the 400-meter hurdles, finishing just shy of her best race of the season.

The BSU Track and Field Team will be back in action tomorrow when it travels to Moorhead, Minn. to compete in the Cobber Twilight. Events are set to begin at 3 p.m.

Despite having the second-best record in the Western Conference and home-ice advantage, the Wild’s season ended prematurely on Saturday with a 4-3 loss to the St. Louis Blues.

After being fired by the Wild last season, Mike Yeo got his revenge against his former team, bouncing Minnesota in five games.

St. Louis came out firing on all cylinders, scoring two-goals in the first ten-minutes of play. Ryan Suter netted a power-play goal towards the end of the first period to make it a one-goal game.

The Blues regained their two-goal lead in the third period but Mikko Koivu netted another goal on the power play, cutting the deficit to one.

With just five remaining in regulation, Jason Zucker tied it up and sent the game to overtime.

Finally midway through overtime, Magnus Paajarvi netted the game-winning goal for St. Louis.

St. Louis will play the Nashville Predators in the next round of the playoffs.


Alex Avila hit a two-run homer and three Tigers finished with three hits to back right-hander Michael Fulmer and lead Detroit to a 13-4 win over the Twins on Sunday at Target Field.
