The menu of live sports remained the same this past week with summer high school baseball and dirt-track racing continuing to be a pair of the few shows going on the local scene.
As is the case even in non-coronavirus times, awards season is in full swing in June and there was plenty of local flavor to keep tabs on for fans.
UND football recruiting, in-depth hockey coverage and other university odds and ends helped dot the Herald coverage.
Hopefully, in this section, you can find what you like to look for in one easy-to-consume place.
1. UND hockey gets defensive
Herald hockey writer Brad Schlossman took an in-depth look at the UND program's defensive corps.
UND has gone from a school with a reputation for big-bodied, physical D-men to a program with a new reputation for skilled, high-scoring blueliners.
This week, look for more on the topic as the Herald dives into the success of college hockey d-men at the pro level.
2. Corcoran no stranger to checkered flag
Corcoran led from start to finish in winning the 20-lap late model feature before nearly 2,000 fans.
In the sprints, Jade Hastings continues to dominate.
3. Memorial Stadium coming down?
The Herald has told fans this was coming in previous coverage but this knocks down one hoop on the schedule.
The UND football coaching staff is taking up residence in nearby Starcher Hall, while the team is setting up shop at Hyslop Sports Center.
The dream is for a mixed-use public-private partnership to set up housing and office space in what is now the Memorial Stadium space.
UND officials have said that setup could help the school better finance High Performance Center Phase 2 -- a priority for athletic director Bill Chaves.
4. Red River thrower makes it a hat trick
Any time you're in the North Dakota track and field company of Fargo South's Laura Roesler, you're in good standing.
Roesler won the award three times, as well, before becoming a national champion at Oregon.
Frank is headed to the University of Minnesota late this summer.
5. The first step back
A UND spokesman said the school won't have the information on whether positive tests come from regular students, athletes, faculty or staff.
That's an encouraging starting point for the university as it tries to ramp up fall efforts on many fronts.
6. LaMoine, LaDouceur receive honors
Grand Forks Red River coaches Greg LaDouceur (tennis) and Mike LaMoine (hockey) received honors from the North Dakota Associated Press Sportscasters and Sportswriters Association.
LaMoine, a principal at Kelly Elementary School, was named the Male High School Coach of the Year for leading Grand Forks Red River to a surprise state hockey championship in his first season behind the bench.
LaDouceur received the Special Achievement Award after retiring this year. He coached tennis in Grand Forks for 30 years, first at Grand Forks Central and then at Red River. He won 21 state team championships between the girls and boys programs.
7. UND QB room gets a little older
UND's quarterback situation in 2020 is full of youth.
The projected starter is redshirt freshman Tommy Schuster and the challengers are true freshmen Quincy Vaughn and Reid Neal.
Ethan Postler is a walk-on, who wants to get into coaching. Seems like a perfect fit for a scout team quarterback role, with potential upside down the road.
8. Blue Devils wrap up homestand
The Blue Devils end the homestand at 7-2 and now head to Williston and Dickinson.
Coach Kelvin Ziegler is interested in learning how his team handles the road trip. With coronavirus concerns, players will be driving themselves out west rather than taking a team bus.
