The accuracy of coaches’ polls will be put to the test today.
Grand Forks hosts the Eastern Dakota Conference cross country meet, beginning at 1 p.m. at Lincoln Park. According to the latest coaches’ polls, Fargo Davies and Grand Forks Central are top contenders.

Nelson County had a solid core group for its American Legion baseball team. Seven starters from the Dakota Prairie team that finished seventh in last month’s North Dakota Class B high school baseball tournament are on its roster. But the Legion team could be even stronger with some additions.
Roseau opened the baseball season with five consecutive losses, scoring a total of 14 runs and no more than four in any game. Since that slow start, Roseau has improved to 8-6. On its current 8-1 run, the Rams have averaged 9.9 runs per game, scoring five or more in every outing.
