UND adds pair
UND has announced the additions of Dakotah Sparrman, a transfer from Arkansas Little Rock, and Aaliyah Danielson, a recruited walk-on. The pair will join the team for the 2014 fall season.
“Dakotah Sparrman is going to be a great addition to our attack and Aaliyah Danielson is a great kid and a great competitor,” UND coach Matt Kellogg said. “Sparrman has the ability to score from distance as well as in close; we are very excited to have her with us. Danielson is a very physical and aggressive player. She will immediately boost our team’s athleticism and add to our competitive environment.”
Sparrman played in 15 of 18 games as a reserve last year for UALR.
UND drops two in home opener
The University of North Dakota opened its home schedule Friday by dropping a doubleheader to Northern Colorado at Apollo Park.
UND lost to the Bears 10-6 in game one and 10-2 in the second.

Mikayla Duffy led the Bears in game one going 3-for-4 and 3 RBI. UND was led by D Jantzer who went 3-for-4 with two runs and an RBI. Shortstop Caralyn Chewning also went 3-for-4 for UND.
Duffy also led Northern Colorado in game two, going 3-for-4 with 5 RBI and two runs. Janzter and Chewning each went 2-for-3 for UND.
