GRAND FORKS, N.D. (AP) — Preliminary work is under way for the demolition of the old Ralph Engelstad Arena on the University of North Dakota campus.

The hockey arena site eventually will house an indoor practice and competition facility for the school's football, baseball, softball and track programs.

Demolition of the old arena is to wrap up by late summer, with construction of the new facility starting in the fall.

The UND hockey team played in the arena from 1972 to 2001, before moving into the new Engelstad Arena.
