The pressure is off Maggie Powell. And the Grand Forks Central senior can thank teammate Karly Ackley for that. Powell goes into today's Class A East Region track meet in...
Spencer Rehovsky and Cole Clemetson were part of the team concept that took an undefeated Park River/Fordville-Lankin football team all the way to a second straight North Dakota Class A high school football championship last fall.
THIEF RIVER FALLS -- The new football coach is the old football coach at Thief River Falls High School. It was announced Thursday that Jeff Mumm will be the Prowlers' head coach in 2016. He replaces Aric Attig, whose coaching contract was not renewed by the Thief River Falls school board.
When Grand Forks Red River has had its full boys track lineup, only once in six outdoor meets this season has an East Region opponent defeated the Roughriders. That means very little to Roughriders coach Jeff Bakke heading into the East Region meet, to be held Saturday beginning at 1 p.m. at West Fargo. The top six finishers in each event, as well as all entrants who meet state-qualifying standards, advance to next week's state meet in Bismarck.
THIEF RIVER FALLS -- Running the 800 is an experience Meleah Biermaier is glad she won't be doing again this spring. The Thief River Falls High School hurdles standout not only ran the 800 on Tuesday at the Section 8AA true team track meet. Biermaier won the race. But she didn't enjoy the race.
Maddie Makovsky doesn't mind finishing what others start. The Grand Forks Red River senior pitcher picked up a save and a complete-game win Thursday as the Roughriders swept Grand Forks Central High School in a fastpitch softball doubleheader at Apollo. Red River won the opener 3-1 and the second game 11-6.
Blaise Monette has pitched his way into a more prominent role on the Grand Forks Central baseball team. The junior right-hander picked up his second win of the season Monday,...
Ben Hanson wasn't conceding anything, even though his team was down 4-0 and was hitless through five innings. "I still felt we could come back,'' Hanson, the Red Lake Falls High School softball coach, said. "We scored four runs on them before. I told the girls we could do it again.'' Red Lake Falls took advantage of miscues to score six unearned runs and claim a 6-5 road win Thursday against East Grand Forks Sacred Heart in a matchup of two of the top teams in Section 8A.
In winning seven of its previous nine games, Grand Forks Central averaged 9.4 runs per game. The red-hot Knights offense was cooled down Friday by Hannah Reimer. The senior allowed only three hits, striking out 12 while walking none, as East Grand Forks Sacred Heart beat the visiting Knights 10-0 in high school softball. The game was called after six innings by the 10-run rule.
Through four innings, Brock Reller didn't allow a hit Thursday. That didn't have the Grand Forks Central pitcher thinking no-hitter. "I never did,'' the junior left-hander said. "I was too much into the zone, focused on the batters, to think about that.''
