MINNEAPOLIS - Zach Huisken scored 15 points to lead Southwest Minnesota Christian Academy to a 59-41 win against Fosston on Thursday in the opening round of the Minnesota Class A boys basketball tournament at Williams Arena.
Red River’s Kroeplin, Devils Lake’s Mertens land on second team On Wednesday, Red River's Mack Arvidson was one of five players selected to the North Dakota Class A all-state first team as chosen by the North Dakota Associated Press Sportscasters and Sportswriters Association.
Coach says Red River junior became more complete player Grand Forks Red River’s Ellie Ripplinger set the bar high for herself as a sophomore when she led the Roughriders in scoring with an 11.0 points per game average. As a junior this year, though, the 5-foot-5 guard had no problems improving on individual accomplishments. That progression led Ripplinger to be named to the North Dakota Class A girls all-state first team, which is selected by members of the North Dakota Associated Press Sportscasters and Sportswriters Association.

The naysayers have been proven wrong. Fosston is heading to the Minnesota Class A boys basketball tournament for the second consecutive season. The Greyhounds entered last season with high expectations and wound up getting to the state tournament for the first time since 1921. But this season’s Section 8A repeat championship wasn’t as anticipated.
Steve Blehm — the name is legendary in North Dakota Class B boys high school basketball circles. And, on the long list of players named to the first team of the North Dakota Class B boys basketball all-state team since Blehm graduated in 1973, nobody has come closer to the legend than Melvin Langstaff.
This one was a long time coming for Grafton. The Spoilers claimed their first Class B girls high school basketball championship Saturday night. The Spoilers’ defense dominated and their offense clicked as they ran to a 76-54 win against Linton-HMB in the title game at the Bismarck Civic Center.
The fatigue factor got to Lakota/Adams-Edmore. The Raiders were outscored 31-16 in the second half here Saturday in dropping a 51-39 decision to Minot Ryan in the consolation championship of the North Dakota Class B girls high school basketball tournament.
The Runnin’ Bucs ran right into the teeth of the Lions. For the first time all season, absolutely nothing went right for the Beach girls basketball team. Linton-Hazelton-Moffit-Braddock, on the other hand, was crisp with its passing, created easy shots down low, crashed the boards and frustrated the cold-shooting Buccaneers as it cruised to a 47-30 victory in the semifinals of the Class B state tournament Friday night at the Bismarck Civic Center.
Hanna Thompson was a different player in the second half. After getting just five points and one rebound in the first two quarters here Friday, she finished with 18 points and 10 rebounds. The senior point guard, at 5-foot-4 the Spoilers' smallest starter, came up big as Grafton pulled away to a 62-45 win against Shiloh Christian in the semifinals of the North Dakota Class B girls high school basketball tournament.
Yellowjackets win section, return to state With two minutes to play in Friday’s Minnesota Section 8AA championship game, Perham coach Dave Cresap tried to talk to his players during a timeout. By that stage of the game, however, his voice had lost the fight against the constant cheering of the crowd. But in the end his players had understood just enough of what Cresap had to say as the Yellowjackets successfully defended their section crown with a 47-42 victory over Bagley.
Seth Carlin made sure there wasn’t another upset in the Minnesota Section 8A boys basketball tournament. Carlin scored a game-high 19 points to lead Fosston to a 59-47 win over Goodridge-Grygla in the championship game of the section tournament Friday night at Ralph Engelstad Arena.
BISMARCK -- Freshman Fallyn Freije's 21 points and 20 rebounds led Lakota/Adams-Edmore past New Town 55-45 in the consolation semifinals of the North Dakota Class B girls high school basketball tournament here Friday.
BISMARCK -- Hanna Thompson and Samantha DeSautel each scored 14 points, leading Grafton past Lakota/Adams-Edmore 58-49 here Thursday in the quarterfinals of the North Dakota Class B girls high school basketball tournament.
