FARGO—North Dakota State dominated the long NCAA Division II series with UND. So far, in the short era of Division I volleyball, it's UND with the upper hand. Not to mention the upper two hands of 6-foot-3 middle hitter Faith Dooley. The Fighting Hawks were tough at the net, and almost every facet of the game for that matter, and UND won for the fifth time in seven tries as D1 schools. The 25-16, 25-19, 30-28 win before 1,289 fans at Bentson Bunker Fieldhouse on Tuesday night was a non-conference match with the mix of league intensity.

The VA now has decided to extend it and hire two full-time Grand Forks counselors, which Heitkamp said "demonstrates that area veterans are using the counseling and readjustment services that they've earned."
