Ty's Take: Legion two weeks from postseason
Just when it feels like the American Legion baseball season got rolling, already the end is in sight. In two weeks, both West Fargo's 19-and-under...

Ty's Take: WF girls soccer season ends
The West Fargo girls soccer team's chance at defending their first-ever state title will not happen this year. Last Friday, the Packers (6-5-3) duked it out with Fargo North and were nearly matched step for step. The result was a 0-0 tie that bumped West Fargo from a State Tournament...

Ty's Take: Packers shining brightly
Packers of all sorts finally got rolling last week. Well, better late than never. The strong spring winds brought the change sports fans...

Ty's Take: At the point of no return
It's getting ridiculous; this spring, I mean. Or at least what we are forced to perceive as spring. But if the green grass in my yard is any indication, we should be past the worst of our seemingly everlasting winter. The damage on the local sports scene, however, has already been...

Ty's Take: Spring finally shines on area sports
Did 60 degrees really just happen? After what seemed like 10 months of misery, excuse me if I'm a bit skeptical about the thought of winter finally being over. But after taking the pooch for a run around town Monday night, all signs point to spring finally deciding to show up...

Ty's Take: Slow melt means sports forced to scramble
Just last week I wrote a Ty's Take column that included important dates and times for this year's spring sports schedule. "Timely information," I thought, whilst typing it up. You can ignore it. If you haven't noticed, and regardless of what the calendar says (is it really April?)...

Ty's Take: Sprung spring sports, dates you should know
Although spring itself seems to be recoiling instead of springing, the coinciding sports are moving forward, regardless. The West Fargo boys and girls track and field indoor season kicked off March 19. Consider them the robins of the athletic scene. The Packers likely will get really...

Ty's Take: A bit on basketball
Now that wrestling and hockey have wrapped up their seasons, only half of the winter sports remain. Besides the state boys swimming meet, which runs Friday-Saturday in Grand Forks, basketball will take center stage during March. And while we don't have a ton of space to thoroughly...

It's not like the West Fargo girls hockey team never loses, because they do. Albeit infrequently. When the Packers drop a game, it's an...

Ty's Take: Bumpier week than normal
While pretty much all of Packer-dom is enjoying a strong winter athletic season, a few specific sports hit bumps last week. And while coaches, players and fans may have hard feelings about a loss, the most important thing to remember is that what happens after a loss matters more...

Ty's Take: Boys basketball wins opener; boys, girls hockey split; wrestling takes second in GF
Just as absurdly cold weather grips the area, West Fargo sports are beginning to heat up. Last week saw the Packers hit full stride in all winter athletic fields, meaning fans have a plethora of possibilities when it comes to high school events. Here's the first winter-season...
