Sophomore Emily Asche's emergence has given Grand Forks Red River two strong Asche hitters. Emily, whose sister Holly is a senior middle hitter, had a team-high seven kills to lead the Roughriders to a sweep over Wahpeton on Tuesday.
In last weekend's Fargo tournament, Emily and Holly both had four kills to spark Red River to third place in the gold division. The Roughriders, who are 19-4, are in second place in the East Region.
After missing four weeks due to a broken wrist on his left hand, Dinius has been an impact player in the Cardinals backfield since his return. Dinius rushed for 266 yards on 37 carries Friday, scoring two touchdowns in a 38-36 win against Park River/Fordville-Lankin. In his three games since returning to action, the junior rushed for 206 and 167 yards prior to his career-best outburst Friday.
Ness is only a sophomore, but she's already claimed two Minnesota Section 8A tennis singles titles. She won her second straight championship last week, rallying to beat Crookston's Hayley Myrold 1-6, 6-1, 6-3 in the 8A final. She plays first singles for the Rams team that won the 8A dual title. Ness will take a 22-6 record to next week's state tournament.
