The Northern State University softball team earned a berth into the Northern Sun Intercollegiate Tournament (NSIC) for the second consecutive year.
NSU finished regular season action with an overall record of 24-30, going 14-16 in the NSIC. The No. 9 seeded Wolves will take on No. 8 seed Bemidji State University in the opening round.
Northern State received a spot in the tournament going 3-1 on the weekend, sweeping Bemidji State and splitting with Minnesota Crookston in a pair of double-headers. Seniors Kelsey Gale and Kalie Maiden each led the team offensively as Gale went 5-8 with two RBIs and two runs scored against the Beavers and Maiden collected three hits versus the Golden Eagles.
From the mound, freshman Jamie Fisher recorded two of the team’s three victories, holding the two teams to just two earned runs in 14 innings of work.
The Wolves face Bemidji State April 28 from Sherman Park in Sioux Falls, SD.
