The North Dakota tournament season hits high gear Thursday. Three tournaments that starts right here in Fargo. One of them is EDC baseball where West Fargo is coming off its first regular season title. The Packers were the preseason pick to win the EDC, but now they have to deal with the added pressure of the postseason.

Andy Young – West Fargo Senior Pitcher: “We have 3 goals. Winning the EDC regular season, that was one of them. We want to get the other ones, want to make it count.”

Brett Peterson – West Fargo Head Coach: “It's very important to be playing good at right time, think we're peaking at the right time, carry into weekend and the following weekend.”

The Packers play Central tomorrow at 5. Some impressive honors for the Bison baseball team, 7 make the All-Summit teams, 2 on the first squad, Tim Colwell and Nick Straka. Five more made the 2nd team, including Zach Wentz and South product Kyle Kingsley.
