The spring sports season was a good one for the UW-Stout Blue Devils.

The baseball team advanced to the WIAC playoffs for the first time since 1999, and the Blue Devils (23-19) made the most of their time, knocking off top-seeded UW-Oshkosh, 9-7, in the first round. The Blue Devils were then eliminated by losses to UW-Stevens Point and UW-Oshkosh. The Blue Devils’ Seth Maier was chosen as WIAC player of the year and named All-American. Joining Maier on the all-WIAC first team were Rob Heller and Erik Johnson.
The Blue Devil men’s track team advanced Ryan Kawski, Ryan Ament, Ryan Carpenter and Derek Gonzenbach to the NCAA Division III outdoor championships. Kawski and Carpenter set school records this season: Kawski in the hammer throw (176-5) and Carpenter in the triple jump (47-5.75). Kawski earned indoor All-American honors in the weight throw. The women’s team advanced freshmen Sam Mayer and Ashlea Peter to the national outdoor championship. Peter was the WIAC outdoor triple jump champion.

Catcher Beth Lloyd of the Blue Devil softball team (16-21) was a first team all-WIAC selection after leading the team in batting (.419).
