GRAND FORKS - Fallyn Freije has been synonymous with North Dakota basketball for the last three years. That will not be the case going forward, as the Edmore native announced Thursday night that she will be transferring. Freije has started each of the past three years, she averaged 13 points a game this past season. The former Miss Basketball finalist missed four games this season because of an injury.
SIOUX FALLS - Will Borgen's last month could fill a book with how busy he's been. The former Moorhead Spud was on the United States Olympic hockey team in Pyeonchang, but Borgen never saw the ice. He returned from South Korea and led his college team, St. Cloud State, to the top ranking in the country and the number one seed in the NCAA Tournament. Now he's hoping the hard lessons he and his team learned a couple years ago with a first round tournament exit can be put to use Friday when the Huskies take on Air Force in the NCAA Tourney opener.
SIOUX FALLS - Will Borgen and Alex Mehnert shared the same blue line when they played together at Moorhead High School. They'll be battling over a blue line Friday in Sioux Falls at the NCAA West Hockey Regional when Borgen's St. Cloud State Huskies face Mehnert's Air Force Falcons. Borgen and Mehnert played together at Moorhead High School, but had different roads to college hockey. Borgen left Moorhead and started playing for the Huskies right away. Mehnert played a couple of years of junior hockey before enrolling at the Air Force Academy this fall.
MOORHEAD - The lights were on at Scheels Field Thursday in Moorhead as the MSU Moorhead football team opened spring ball. Steve Laqua begins his eighth year at the helm of the Dragons with some questions that need answers. Notably on his starting quarterback. That battle will last into the fall. As far as the upperclassmen, there's a definite drive to erase the taste of last year's disappointment of a 5-6 season.
FARGO - The most succesful high school football program in North Dakota history will return to the top class in the state in 2019.

The Deacons have had tremendous success in 2A, winning state championships in 2009, 2010 and 2012 along with appearing in the Dakota Bowl seven of the last nine seasons.
FARGO - North Dakota State opens springs football practice on Wednesday and nearly twenty players will not see the field over the next month because of injuries sustained during the championship winning season.

Klieman said double repititions will continue but there will be less contact during the fifteen practices.

BRECKENRIDGE - The Breckenridge Cowboys will play for a third appearance in the Minnesota State Basketball Tournament in the last four years Thursday night and a big reason why they may get there is getting plenty of college buzz. Junior forward Noah Christensen is one of the hot commodities of the Minnesota Class of 2019 juniors, North Dakota State head coach Dave Richman was in attendance Monday when Christensen racked up 36 points and 15 rebounds against Hawley in the section semifinals.
