The Prowlers ended Minnesota Section 8A play undefeated in 10 tries on the season with a 3-1 win over East Grand Forks Senior High on Tuesday night.
“This was a big win,” said Bergland, whose team improved to 18-4-2.
Senior High came out swinging.
Last year, East Grand Forks Senior High propelled to home ice off the skates of Leah Jensen, a current redshirt for the UND women’s hockey program, who led the team with 65 points during the regular season.
This year, a number of new players are filling the gap in talent.
The Grand Forks Red River boys basketball team isn’t a two-man show.
The Roughriders demonstrated Tuesday night they’re feared for reasons beyond the standout backcourt of Mack Arvidson and Mac Kroeplin.
Red River center John Hoplin led the Riders for the second-straight game with 16 points in a 64-40 road win over East Grand Forks Senior High.
For the past few seasons, Grand Forks Central’s girls basketball team could build around the talents of Caitlin Farroh. Likewise, East Grand Forks Senior High had a force in its backcourt in Chelsey Frydenlund.
Both were all-staters last season. Both graduated last spring. And now both programs are adapting to life without their stars.
Following the game, East Grand Forks Senior High senior Frankie Vargas took a running start. After a 10-yard sprint, Vargas sprawled out in the mud turning Senior High field into his own gridiron Slip ‘n Slide.
Finding a way for the East Grand Forks Senior High volleyball team to top last season would be difficult under any circumstances. The fact that the Green Wave return only three players from last year’s team that was one win away from the Minnesota state tournament makes the chances of a repeat trip to the Section 8AA championship match that much harder.
