NSIC D2 College Baseball Regular Season Ends


The Northern Sun Conference’s D2 college baseball regular season ended yesterday with excitement in Sioux Falls and disappointment in St. Cloud.

  • St. Cloud State needed to sweep its pair of games against the Conference’s #2 team, Minnesota State, in order to preserve 6th place in the standings and a spot in the NSIC post-season Tournament.  They got the game 1 win (7-0) but couldn’t close it out and lost the back end 6-4 to fall to 7th place.  That said, it was a record breaking year for the Huskies who look to be on the upswing in the future.  St. Cloud Season Ends
  • Augustana was the lucky dog as they easily swept away last place Northern State by scores of 10-2 & 16-2 and took over 6th place.  They will head to the NSIC Tournament on Thursday in St. Cloud with a first round game against Wayne State who they played tough against during the year.  Augies Make NSIC Tourney
  • Upper Iowa averted what could have been a difficult collapse by beating up Minnesota Duluth early and often.  They swept the Bulldogs by scores of 14-6 & 12-4 to maintain 5th place in the standings.  Peacocks Sweep – Claim 5th Place
  • Wayne State swept Minnesota Crookston and in the process won their 6th straight Northern Sun regular season championship AND Coach John Manganaro got his 500th win as head coach of the Wildcats.  Congrats to Coach Mags and Wayne State on another great year!  WSC – 6th Straight NSIC Title & Mags 500th Win
  • Concordia got a little measure of satisfaction by sweeping the leagues #3 team, Winona State, by scores of 8-7 and 6-0.  The wins helped them pass Duluth for 8th spot in the standings and gave them an above .500 record in Conference.  That said, for a team picked by the coaches to finish 3rd it was a tough finish and the Golden Bears lose a number of seniors that were a big part of their primary contributors.  CU Sweeps Warriors To Win Series
  • Southwest Minnesota State again could manage just a split against the University of Mary.  In the process they did secure win #348 for head coach Paul Blanchard who becomes the winningest coach in school history.  The Mustangs finish the season in 4th place.  SMSU Splits – Blanchard Sets Record
  • Bemidji State’s season ended on Sunday with a split against Montana State – Billings Bemidji Splits w/ Billings
