Bemidji State University Head Coach Tom Serratore has been named as a finalist for the 2016-17 Spencer Penrose Award. Now in his 16th season at the helm of the Beaver Hockey program, this marks the sixth time Serratore has been up for the award annually given to the NCAA Division I hockey coach of the year. The reigning WCHA Coach of the Year, Serratore led the Beavers to their first 20-win season since 2009-10 and BSU’s 22nd regular-season conference title. Serratore’s Beavers posted a 22-16-3 overall record in 2016-17 en route to leading the WCHA from wire to wire. BSU recorded a 20-6-2-2 record in league play, including a 13-game WCHA unbeaten streak (11-0-2), to earn possession of the coveted MacNaughton Cup as the WCHA regular-season champion. It marked BSU’s regular-season title since joining the league prior to the 2010-11 campaign.
Today's originally scheduled doubleheader between Bemidji State University and Concordia University-St. Paul baseball has been rescheduled for Thursday, March 30 in an attempt to gain better field conditions. The Beavers (7-13, 4-4 Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference) and Golden Bears (10-10, 4-4 NSIC) will play at 2 and 4 p.m. from BSU Baseball Field.
