Since joining the Big Sky Conference in 2012, UND steadily has been inching closer to making a splash at the Big Sky Conference outdoor track and field meet. This season, UND appears to be closer it's ever been in making some noise as the Fighting Hawks could be looking at multiple individual titles during the league's outdoor meet, which begins Thursday at Northern Colorado.

DEVILS LAKE—It's still early in the race season but the Devils Lake Speedway is off and running. And the track will host its first big special of the year Saturday night. The track will hold a $1,000-to-win street stock special, an event that could attract approximately 25 drivers from the area, according to track promoter Nolan Olmstead. Two nights of racing already are in the books at the Speedway, and Olmstead said the car counts and racing have been good.
The Herald's Brad Schlossman has won first place in the Associated Press Sports Editors 2015 contest in beat writing for the 30,000-and-under circulation category. Schlossman won for his portfolio of five stories demonstrating his coverage of college hockey, UND in particular. He will receive his first place award at the 2016 APSE Conference, scheduled June 22-25, in Charlotte, N.C.

And before one of the biggest college baseball crowds in a long, long time, UND was playing its natural rival—North Dakota State. But there was something drastically wrong with this perfect picture. There was little, if any, emotion from UND for a rivalry game played before nearly 1,000 fans on a gorgeous night. NDSU won 4-2 in a game that lacked any drama.
Inside today's Herald is something different and unique. It's a 7,000-word story from the Herald's Brad Schlossman, who covers UND hockey. It's an inside look at how UND players spent April 9—the day UND won its eighth national hockey championship. Newspapers rarely publish 7,000-word stories. The general thought for newspapers is this: Write tight. That means stories between 12 and 15 inches usually are the norm in this business.
It was the season opener at River Cities Speedway on Friday night. Predictably, the weather wasn’t the best. A breeze and temperatures in the low 50s made for a rather...
