She gets the same reaction every time she says that her daughters enjoy being in the swimming pool. "Imagine that." That's because she is Shelly Ebbighausen, a 23-time All-American swimmer at UND who won three national championships between 1991 and 1993.
Casey Mack has won seven features in his young sprint car racing career. But the East Grand Forks driver is as proud of his runner-up finish last week as any of those previous wins. Mack started the feature at River Cities Speedway in the 21st spot and moved all the way up to second, where he finished behind defending points champion Mark Dobmeier. "We had a really good run," the 20-year-old Mack said. "It was probably one of the best nights ever, to come from 21st to second -- especially doing it in Grand Forks.
With the season looming two months away, the UND men's hockey team made one final change to the roster. Saskatchewan native Graeme Harrington has been added as the team's third goaltender in place of Landon Snider, who the Sioux grabbed off of campus midway through last season. Harrington is expected to start the season behind senior Aaron Walski and fellow rookie Brad Eidsness on the depth chart.
Justin Duberman gained both a degree and hockey experience from his time at UND. Nowadays, he's using both to help current players. The former Sioux forward (1988-92), who played professionally for six seasons, is an agent for Achieve Sports Management, which is based in Chicago. Many of his clients are former Sioux players. This summer, he negotiated contracts for defensemen Matt Jones, David Hale and Robbie Bina. Jones and Hale signed with the Phoenix Coyotes and Bina signed with the Edmonton Oilers' minor league affiliate. "There's a long list of UND guys," Duberman said.
Ralph Engelstad Arena officials say they are "very optimistic" that they will get the World Junior Hockey Championship back to Grand Forks in 2011. The 100-plus page bid they submitted Thursday contains significant money guarantees for USA Hockey, which plans to visit potential sites this fall and announce a winner in December.
Ralph Engelstad Arena has submitted its bid to host the 2011 World Junior Hockey Championship, a tournament that features the best under-20 players in the world. Its proposal calls for the Moorhead Sports Center to be the satellite site. USA Hockey says that 26 entities have expressed interest in hosting the tournament, although it was unsure how many of those would submit bids. Bids are due Friday. USA Hockey will select an undetermined number of finalists this fall and then visit the potential sites. The winning city is expected to be announced in late December. Grand Forks has one big
There was a running joke about Amy Mahlum in the Winona State women's basketball locker room. Mahlum may have been the assistant coach, but players and fellow coaches always said that she still bleeds green. "It's so true," said Mahlum, who was a standout point guard for UND from 2002-06. "And I will forever." Not a lot has changed for Mahlum, who left Grand Forks two years ago. She's still balancing challenging academics with athletic demands. Mahlum enrolled in graduate school at Winona in 2006.

Grafton is on its way to another state tournament. And if the town's resume of winning state titles this year doesn't make the Grafton American Legion baseball team a favorite, its current 18-game winning streak should do the trick. Grafton rallied from a four-run deficit to beat Langdon 10-7 on Friday night at Kraft Field, ending Langdon's two-year reign as Section 4 champions. This year, one in which Grafton has already won state boys basketball and boys hockey championships, it will be the representative for Section 4 at the North Dakota state tournament in LaMoure. As it has done throu
What will happen, Adrienne Thomas wonders, when she truly gets trained for the first time this fall? "I think the possibilities are endless," she says. The University of Minnesota thinks so, too. After asking the recent high school graduate from Adams, N.D., to walk on to the track and field team, the Big 10 school has changed its tune and extended a scholarship to Thomas because of her continuous improvements. Thomas didn't even go out for high school track until she was a junior.
