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.
West Fargo, ND - Some surprising news out of West Fargo this afternoon, as sourses confirmed to WDAY that West Fargo head boys basketball coach Josh Downey has resigned from the position. Downey coached the Packers for just two seasons, advancing to the title game a year ago, before losing in the first round this year. The Packers were 44-10 in his two seasons.
Salt Lake City, Utah - Right now, you can bet the nerves are high as ever for the UND Men's basketball team. Arizona on the other hand is a team who's been there done that before when it comes to the big dance. Mark Pearson is in Salt Lake City and gives us some insight on how these two teams match up against each other.
Hillsboro, ND - It seems fitting forty years after one of the greatest wins in North Dakota basketball history, Hillsboro makes its return to the North Dakota State B tournament. The Burros are now a co-op with Central Valley, but make no mistake, they are fully aware of their history. H-CV enters as the three seed, with a 21-3 record. This is a senior laden group that has played a tough schedule and believe that has them ready to bring a fifth title back to Hillsboro.
Devils Lake, ND - Tronis McKay scored a game high 23 points to lead Four Winds-Minnewaukan to a 64-55 win over St. John in the Region 4 championship game.

St. Paul, MN - Back in 2005, Moorhead senior Jon Ammerman took the ice at the Xcel Energy Center with his teammates in search of the program's first state title. Now 12 years later, Ammerman is once again back at the X, with another chance to hang the first banner. This time though he'll be behind the bench as the Spuds head coach. WDAY's Joel Sipper is in St. Paul, and spoke with Ammerman about tonight's opportunity.

Sheyenne knows it's defense will be tested, but is looking forward to the test.
