Fargo, ND - Through four practices, some players are already starting to turn the heads of the Bison coaches. One of those players is sophomore defensive line man Cole Karcz. Karcz appeared in four games last season, before injuring his meniscus, and breaking his hand. This spring, Karcz is back healthy, and moving from defensive end, to a tackle spot, which he says fits his skills well.
Moorhead, MN - Concordia University hosted the Class B Maple River Indoor meet at the Olson Sports Forum Tuesday afternoon. Seven local Class B teams competed in the meet.
Fargo, ND - The sound of the spring sports season has returned to North Dakota and it's louder than it has been in a decade. That's because aluminum bats have returned for North Dakota high school baseball for the upcoming season, ending a ten year run with wooden bats. The decision was made by the High School Association last June, and while it wasn't an overly popular move from the coaches perspective, it now will change games.
Grand Forks, ND - UND reached the halfway point of its spring football practice schedule this morning. For the first time since Bubba Schweigert took over, there are high expectations for the Fighting Hawks. Coming off a Big Sky championship and a first FCS playoff berth and with 18 starters back, Schweigert feels they can right back in the mix. Add in South transfer James Johannesson and there's the potential for something great.
Fargo, ND - NDSU has picked up a late addition for the Class of 2017. Wyoming junior college guard Chris Qualye tweeted out tonight that he's committed to play for the Bison next year. Qualye is a 6'4 combo guard, who just wrapped up his first year at Central Wyoming College. He averaged 10 points a game this past season. He sprouted eight inches late in his high school career and gained 20 pounds. Qualye is the fourth commit for the upcoming year for NDSU.
Pelican Rapids, MN - It's been twenty years since Pelican Rapids stood atop the Minnesota high school football mountain, winning the 2A state championship that fall. The boys basketball team brought home a championship in 2009, but in the years since, success has dwindled. The move down might effect Pelican Rapids the most out here on the football field, where the Vikings haven't won a game in over two seasons.
Breckenridge, MN - The Breckenridge Cowboys ended a 36 year drought when they reached state in 2015. They didn't have to wait nearly as long for a return trip, as they'll play in the Barn tomorrow night. Despite a 26-2 record, they weren't the favorites in Section 8AA. But as Tim Frie tells us they're ready to shock the state this week.
Fargo, ND - NDSU returns to the football field tomorrow morning as the Bison will hold the first of fifteen spring practices. It's the first time since 2011 NDSU goes to work not as the defending champions. This spring will also be the first time Chris Klieman gets a real look at his freshman class of players. The entire class was red-shirted this past season, and some have clearly impressed the staff, led by linebacker Jabril Cox and offensive tackle Dillon Radunz. This spring is about one thing for Klieman; developing quality depth.
Fergus Falls, MN - While tournament season is over in North Dakota, one more tournament remains in Minnesota. This area will be well represented in Minneapolis this week, with three local teams competing. One of those teams is the Fergus Falls Otters. Fergus Falls played for a state championship for the first time in school history last year, only to lose to DeLaSalle in the title game. It's a possibility the two teams could meet gain this year, in the semifinals, and the Otters are hoping for a rematch.
Minot, ND - Hillsboro-Central Valley head coach Elliot Rotvold joined WDAY sports director Dom Izzo to preview the Burros semifinal game against Ellendale.
