5-10-22

(DSUAthletics.com) — Dakota State (S.D.) continued its improbable run in the North Star Athletic Association Baseball Postseason Tournament Monday afternoon as the Trojans defeated the Dickinson State Blue Hawks 5-4, on a walk-off RBI single by Walker Hultgren to advance DSU to their first-ever NSAA postseason tournament’s championship game in program history.

Dakota State is set to face the top-seeded and nationally ranked No. 7 Bellevue (Neb.) Tuesday. First pitch is set for 12 p.m.

The Trojans will need to beat the Bruins twice to secure the championship and receive the league’s automatic bid to the NAIA Baseball National Tournament’s Opening Round.
