Any other result on a near-perfect Saturday afternoon for college softball would have been unacceptable for UND. With a good-sized crowd in attendance, UND downed Southern Utah 6-0 at Apollo, a win that allowed the Fighting Hawks to take the Big Sky Conference weekend series against the Thunderbirds. More important, the win gave UND some momentum heading into this week's Big Sky tournament in Ogden, Utah.
No driver has dominated River Cities Speedway in recent seasons more than Mark Dobmeier. Surprisingly, there has been one sprint feature win that has eluded him in recent years—the season opener. But Dobmeier had no problems Friday night, dominating the 25-lap sprint feature during the season opener at The Bullring.

In a battle of the top two teams in the Dakota Premier Lacrosse League, the Sioux Falls Spark downed the Grand Forks Predators 8-7 on Saturday morning at Cushman Field. Conditions for the day were ideal. "It's a beautiful day for lacrosse," said Brent Lindstrom, the president of the Grand Forks Lacrosse Association. The day, in many respects, matched the progression of the sport in Grand Forks and East Grand Forks the past few years.
Austin Reitan took up boxing less than two years ago. But the 21-year-old has managed to enjoy success early in his career. The Grand Forks boxer has qualified for next week's National Golden Gloves tournament in Lafayette, La. He's scheduled to have his first bout at nationals on Monday. Reitan went 2-0 at last week's Upper Midwest Golden Gloves tournament in Walker, Minn. "It's been going pretty well for me," said Reitan, who will box at 178 pounds. "The sport has been pretty good to me so far." Reitan is 10-2 since he took up the sport.
MANVEL, N.D. — Mike Maidenberg and Mike Jacobs, like thousands of other Grand Forks and East Grand Forks residents, couldn't predict when the Red River would crest during the devastating 1997 flood. But the Grand Forks Herald publisher and editor accurately predicted one thing after the rising, unforgiving Red River of the North forced them from their homes. "Come Hell and High Water," the Grand Forks Herald wouldn't miss a day of publication during the newspaper's most trying time in its 138-year history.

Young basketball players were everywhere in Grand Forks on Saturday, thanks to the Junior Grand Am tournament sponsored by the Fast Break Club. And Minnesota Lynx star Lindsay Whalen enjoyed every minute of the day. She was in town to conduct a youth basketball clinic sponsored by The Timberwolves and Lynx Basketball Academy. For roughly 90 minutes, campers ran through drills at Red River High School before having the chance for autographs and pictures with Whalen—one of the top players in the WNBA.

For Midco, it will be its first live broadcast of motorsports.The night of racing will be available to viewers in North Dakota, South Dakota, Minnesota and Wisconsin.
