When UND 7-foot sophomore center Carson Shanks heard the school was planning to cut the baseball program, he called his dad and put himself in the spikes of the baseball players. "I just remember talking about how I couldn't imagine losing my sport like that," Shanks said. So when Shanks found out the university was allowing the baseball program a chance to fundraise to save the sport, he took action into his own hands.
A windy, rainy Sunday afternoon was fitting for the UND baseball team, a program awaiting to hear its fate after the school announced plans to cut the program only to later allow it an opportunity at a fundraising effort. As the university keeps the baseball program in limbo, the Fighting Hawks struggled to throw strikes in a 14-2 Grand Canyon win during Western Athletic Conference play at Kraft Field. UND dropped to 0-7 since the school announced April 12 it would cut the program to assist in the university's budget deficit.

Team USA used a little advice from North Dakota men's hockey coach Brad Berry on Saturday afternoon. American coach Danton Cole said his temporary office had the words "attack mentality" still written and left from UND's run to a national championship last weekend. "We didn't take that down for a purpose," Cole said. "We wanted to stay on the attack." The emphasis provided results against Sweden as six different players scored en route to Team USA's 6-1 win in pool play of the IIHF World Under-18 Championship at Ralph Engelstad Arena.
With reports of a doping scandal, the Russians sent primarily their Under-17 team to the IIHF World Under-18 Championship at Ralph Engelstad Arena. The young Russians faced their first test against a tournament favorite—the Americans—on Thursday night on the opening day of the event. The result? A mixed bag. The Russians held their own, but only for half of the game. Team USA pulled away for an 8-2 win Thursday night at REA behind four points from Kailer Yamamoto (two goals, two assists) and three points from Clayton Keller (two goals, assist).
An email offering fundraising help to the UND baseball program from former pitcher Andrew Thome to Athletic Director Brian Faison on Sept. 3, 2015, never received a response. On Tuesday, UND announced it will be cutting baseball and men's golf after this season in order to assist with the university's nearly $10 million budget deficit. Thome, who now pitches for the Class A affiliate of the Houston Astros, started the email thanking Faison for adding full cost of attendance scholarships.

TAMPA, Fla.—Whether they're soaking up the sun on the sandy Florida beaches or mulling around by Amalie Arena, UND hockey fans who made the trip to the Frozen Four are relishing Friday's break between the national semifinals and the championship game. The throng of UND hockey fans, who haven't been able to enjoy Friday like this since 2005, ate up a good portion of the 18,000-plus in attendance during Thursday night's 4-2 win over the University of Denver. But those fans back in Grand Forks also made a big impression on the UND hockey team, players said Friday.
