Senior Danica Dutt has been a staple on the West Fargo swim team for several years, but she took her first step toward the next level on Thursday morning, signing a letter of intent to swim for the University of North Dakota. “It is a good distance from home, and the team is very welcoming,” Dutt said. “I would be in the middle there, so I will have people to push me, and I can push others.
