Grand Forks Red River pinned its winning streak of 116 duals on its singles players Thursday afternoon. Freshman Erik Johnson, among others, came through for the Roughriders. Johnson's 6-3, 6-4 win over Fargo South's Parker Lawley at No.
Minnesota Wild coach Jacques Lemaire said the atmosphere in Grand Forks and in Ralph Engelstad Arena is better than what the team has had in the past for training camp. Danny Irmen certainly agrees. The former Grand Forks Red River standout opened NHL training camp Saturday by scoring the first goal of the first scrimmage in Ralph Engelstad Arena. The opening four days of camp are being held in UND's home rink as the Wild's usual home, Xcel Energy Center, is being reconstructed after hosting the Republican National Convention earlier this month. The change of venue (it's the first time the
Bryan Lundbohm and Danny Irmen both left college a year early to pursue professional hockey careers, hoping they would eventually land in the NHL. It hasn't happened yet, but this year's preseason audition will have a different feel for both. The Minnesota Wild are opening training camp Saturday in Grand Forks' Ralph Engelstad Arena. The Wild's home rink, the Xcel Energy Center, is being rebuilt after hosting the Republican National Convention earlier this month. The camp will be held in UND's home rink for the first four days before returning to St.
Midway through the third quarter, the lights went out on East Grand Forks Senior High -- figuratively and literally. In between a pair of touchdowns that put Pequot Lakes up 24-0 in the second half, a failure in a block of lights appropriately dimmed Senior High Field as the Green Wave dropped their 12th straight football game since the start of the 2007 season. Pequot Lakes running back Matt Michaelson ran for 172 yards on 16 carries -- highlighted by a pair of 52-yard runs -- to lead the Patriots to an easy 31-0 win Friday. It was the first victory of the season for the Patriots, who used
In June, UND lost a top 1992-born defenseman recruit to the Canadian major junior ranks. It only took about three months for the Sioux to land another one. Duluth East junior defenseman Derek Forbort verbally committed to UND this week, giving the Sioux one of the top blue liners in Minnesota. Forbort also made recruiting visits and received scholarship offers to Minnesota, Wisconsin, Notre Dame and his hometown University of Minnesota-Duluth. "It was a really tough decision," said Forbort, who will arrive on campus in 2010 or 2011. "It came down to UMD, Minnesota and North Dakota.
After losing to East Grand Forks Senior High four times last season and once again to start 2008, the Crookston girls soccer team finally has proof that it can play with the top teams in the section. Kalie Persson scored with 4 minutes, 23 seconds left in regulation to lift the Pirates to a 2-2 tie with Senior High on Tuesday afternoon. Senior High, the section runner-up a year ago, appeared to be the class of the north subsection again this season after it hammered Crookston 4-0 a couple of weeks ago. But the Pirates (5-3-1) are on a five-game unbeaten streak, while Senior High (4-3-1) is
The late-summer coaching switch hasn't hurt the UND volleyball team. Two weeks into the season, the Sioux are on the verge of the best start in school history. They are 8-0 after trips to California and Texas and with a win today at home against Mayville State, UND could set a new standard. UND's 8-0 start in 2002 under then-coach Maria Bruggeman ranks as the program's best start to a season. That could change under interim coach Kari Peterson, who took over for her twin sister a month ago. "I think the girls are definitely excited about our start," Peterson said.

Duluth East junior defenseman Derek Forbort verbally committed to UND this week, giving the Sioux one of the top blue liners in the state of Minnesota. Forbort made recruiting visits and received scholarship offers to Minnesota, Wisconsin, Notre Dame and his hometown Duluth Bulldogs, but he ended up choosing Grand Forks. "It was a really tough decision," said Forbort, who will arrive on campus in 2010 or 2011.
Kyle Radke, Taylor Chorney and Robbie Bina are about to go to their first professional training camp. After this week, the former UND defensemen will have a pretty good idea of what to expect. Brad Berry, a former Sioux player and assistant coach, is running a pro camp in Ralph Engelstad Arena's Olympic Ice Center that is designed to prepare players for their teams' training camps. Among players in town for the weeklong event, which started Sunday, are pros Matt Greene, Matt Jones, David Hale, Jonathan Toews, Bryan Lundbohm, Karl Goehring, Andy Schneider, Rylan Kaip and Jean-Philippe Lamour
The first time Dan Frei saw Chivas Beaudoin play golf, she made a big impression. Just a high school sophomore in 2005, Beaudoin won the North Dakota state girls tournament at Grand Forks' King's Walk, becoming the first Dickinson golfer ever to do so. The next three years, Frei says, she was arguably the best female player in the state. "She can be a legitimate No.
