Sautbine and Campbell garner Beaver Pride Athlete of the Week honors

BEMIDJI, Minn. -- Bemidji State University’s Taylor Sautbine (Jr., Tamarack, Minn.) and Miles Campbell (So., RHP, Eden Prairie, Minn.) have been named Beaver Pride Athletes of the Week after recording outstanding athletic performances during the week of April 16-22.
Sautbine, a junior multi-event athlete, placed among the top 10 in three events at the Holst Invitational in St. Paul, Minn. Saturday. She turned in a career-best time (12.71) in the 100-meter dash to finish second and recorded a fourth-place finish in the 100-meter hurdles clocking a season-best time of 15:72.  In addition she took 10th in the long jump with a leap of 15 feet, 0.50 inches (15-00.50).

This week’s Beaver Pride Athlete of the Week selection marks the first of the season for Sautbine and the fourth for the BSU track and field squad. Sautbine joins teammates Kirsten Maras (Sr., Ramsey, Minn.), who garnered the award Feb. 1 and two-time recipient (Feb. 8 and 29) Ashley Larva (Jr., Floodwood, Minn.).    

Campbell threw 15.0 innings for the BSU baseball team and recorded a 2.40 ERA, a .323 opponent batting average in two starts last week.  He posted a 1-0 record with 11 strikeouts and allowed only two walks. He earned a win against Minnesota, Crookston April 18 after a seven inning outing where he allowed two runs (one earned) on 11 hits with five strikeouts. Campbell pitched eight complete innings and one batter versus No. 8 Minnesota State April 23. He allowed five runs on nine hits with six K’s in a no decision. After allowing four runs on five hits in his first two innings of work, Campbell settled in and allowed just one run on five hits in his final six innings. He also totaled four putouts and four assists in the two games.

This week’s Beaver Pride Athlete of the Week marks the first time Campbell has been honored by the organization, while it is the fifth of 2012 for the BSU baseball team. He follows last week’s winner Mauricio Gomez (Sr., INF, Caracus, Venezuela), the March 21 selection Jaryd Marks (Jr., RHP/1B, Cottage Grove, Minn.), Logan Kalis (1B/RHP/OF, Jr., Little Falls, Minn.), who earned the award March 28 and Phil Bray (Jr., LHP, Chatfield, Minn.), who was honored April 11.

Bemidji State track and field will return to action this weekend as it travels south to compete in the Simpson Open and the Drake relays in Indianola and Des Moines, Iowa, respectively.

The BSU baseball team (17-21, 10-14 NSIC) concludes an eight-game road streak at University of Mary today before closing the home schedule with six-straight contests beginning with Winona State University April 28-29.
