WEST FARGO - The West Fargo School District has a major vote today to address the rapid population growth in that city and it directly affects athletics. The 106.9 million dollar bond referendum package includes not only a new high school and new middle school - along with millions in security upgrades at several schools, along with field turf for West Fargo, Sheyenne and the new high school. Sheyenne's football field is just four years old, but is used for everything from ninth grade to varsity games. West Fargo's may be used by even more teams.
WEST FARGO - It's been a one sided affair when the Packers and Mustang have met on the football field. West Fargo has outscored Sheyenne 139-28 over the last four meetings, but this year's Sheyenne seniors are ready to change history. The Mustangs know this series has been ugly, but think they can change it all Friday night. Sheyenne enters this weekend's game on a high note after blitzing Legacy 47-7. Meanwhile the Packers have had trouble finding the endzone, scoring just eight points in two games.
SPORTS SUNDAY - It was a run that had many in the state of North Dakota watching, hoping and cheering for the Fargo little league team to make history at the Little League World Series. While the boys didn't secure a spot in Williamsport, they went farther than any little league team in the state ever has. Dom Izzo sits down with head coach Mike Rerik, discussing what this successful season has been like.
FARGO - One night after Brennan Metzger became a viral sensation for his antics after being ejected in the F-M RedHawks win over Chicago, the Dogs were going to get their day.
FARGO - Brent Vigen isn't a man who needs the spotlight. He shies away from attention and adulation, it's just not the type of guy he is. But this week will be hard for the Buxton, N.D., native to avoid the spotlight. In fact, he'll be right in the heart of the national sports discussion. That's thanks to the NFL Draft beginning on Thursday, April 26, in Dallas. Vigen's former quarterback at the University of Wyoming, Josh Allen, is the projected number one overall pick to the Cleveland Browns.
North Dakota State had two players leave its men’s basketball program recently as Dylan Miller and Nnamdi Van Dulm will not return to Fargo for the fall of 2018. Those moves put the spotlight even larger on Dave Richman and his staff to find some size over the next couple of months either in a transfer or JUCO player. The Bison will not sign any players today as the late signing period opens for the next month. This historically has been a successful period for the school, Taylor Braun, Lawrence Alexander and Kory Brown signed in April.
North Dakota State began the fourth week of spring football earlier this morning at the Dacotah Field Bubble with eyes fixed on next Friday’s Green and Gold game.
