The North Dakota state girls tennis tournament will be different this year. That's not just because the entire team portion will be played in one day for the first time ever. It's also different because Grand Forks Red River, winner of the past 14 state tournaments, can't be penciled in as the champion. In fact, the Roughriders might not even be the favorite. They lost their last time out, ending a string of 203 consecutive team victories over the span of 15 years.

College hockey coaches continue to shoot down proposals to make overtime policies uniform across the country's six conferences. Currently, when games are tied at the end of regulation, a five-minute, 5-on-5 overtime is played in each league. After that, conferences are open to hold a 3-on-3 session or a shootout, even though those games still go down as a tie for NCAA tournament, RPI and Pairwise formulas. The 3-on-3 or shootout count solely for conference points.
Ethan Knudson had no idea that his two-and-a-half-foot putt on the final hole Monday afternoon was for a lot more than a birdie. The junior golfer sank the putt and soon discovered that it gave Grand Forks Central its first victory in a boys golf meet in at least 20 years. Central finished with a team total of 306—one stroke ahead of Fargo Davies and Fargo Shanley at the Fargo Country Club. Neither current coach Josh Cichy nor former coach Sue Ann Lund remembered exactly when the Knights last won a boys golf meet, but it wasn't during their time as coach.

The sun peeks over the horizon at dawn on Mount Kenya. Andrew Towne is already four hours into his climb. His leather construction boots and corduroy pants are a dead giveaway that he has minimal hiking experience and has never climbed a mountain. He feels fine, but that's about to change. The sun sheds light on the mountain for the first time. Towne looks down and sees a 400-foot ice-packed slope. If I fall, it's going to be a long, fast ride down and I'm going to hit something hard. It could be a terrible death.
The singles final featured Shaelyn Johnson and Monti Knewtson. Get used to reading that phrase. Saturday afternoon's East Region singles championship was a showdown of eighth-graders who are capable of dominating the North Dakota tennis scene for years to come. Johnson won this matchup 6-4, 6-4 to capture the region crown. It was their second meeting of the weekend and fourth of the season. The season series is tied 2-2. They split the two matches in Choice Health and Fitness over the weekend.

Knewtson, last year's state runner-up, will take on junior Jenna Forknell of Fargo Davies in the semifinals this morning at Choice Health and Fitness. Johnson will take on Fargo Shanley's Olivia Keelin, a MSU-Moorhead recruit, in the other semifinal.
