Lennon went 9-of-14 from the field and a perfect 9-of-9 from the line, while helping the Packers hold a 41-27 rebounding edge. He wasn't the only source of offense, as four other Packers scored in double figures. Matt Miller scored 17, Hunter Lyman had 15, Carson Hegerle 14 and Carter Birrenkott 10.

FARGO — Adam Palczewski takes pride in having one of the most well-conditioned boys basketball teams in the state. For the second-straight postseason game, the pace in which he and West Fargo played made life miserable for an East Region opponent. Carson Hegerle kick-started an 18-2 run with six straight points late in the second half, and the second-seeded Packers ran away from No. 6 Devils Lake 71-57 win in the semifinals of the East Region Tournament at the Sanford Health Athletic Center's Scheels Center on the North Dakota State campus.

FARGO — Both early and late in its state semifinal matchup with Fargo North-South, West Fargo had to deal with one of the most unwelcome sights a high school girls hockey team can face.

FARGO — As soon as it ended, the Fargo Davies girls hockey team knew it wanted another crack at Bismarck following a disappointing finish in the regular-season finale.
