MSU’s Dixon named Central Region POY

Minot State University junior Jen Dixon was voted the Daktronics Central Region Player of the Year on Monday.

The left fielder finished the season with a .447 batting average, an .880 slugging percentage, a .530 on-base percentage and 12 home runs.

MSU seniors Mandy Greenberg and Tiffany Friesen were also voted to the all-Central Region first team.

Greenberg went 25-5 in the circle with a 1.12 ERA and 258 strikeouts. Friesen batted .378 and led the Beavers with a school-record 16 home runs and 62 RBIs. Friesen also finished 13-6 with a 2.09 ERA as the Beavers’ No. 2 pitcher.

Each of MSU’s all-region selections will automatically be on the ballot for the Daktronics All-America team.

MSU finished 41-11 in its first season in Division II and qualified for the Central Region tournament. The Beavers were eliminated from the field by top-seeded Fort Hays State (Kan.) on Saturday.
