Q: If you could have one super power, what would it be? A: It would be to fly. To go anywhere you want. I've always been interested in traveling the world. Just get up and go wherever you want. Q: What is the most embarrassing song on your phone or iPod? A: I don't the name of it but it sounds like .... (singing) "taking my way downtown." ... I think it's a 'Million miles' or 'Miles away.' I have that on my phone and my teammates think that's pretty funny. Q: Where do you see yourself in five years?
Q: If you could have one super power, what would it be? A: I would want to fly, for sure. No question about it. I've always thought about it. Q: What is the most embarrassing song on your phone or iPod? A: Sadly, it's probably something from 'One Direction.' They might be a guilty pleasure of mine. Q: Where do you see yourself in five years? A: I would hope to have locked down a career in either the agricultural industry or something in the business world. Location? Not sure. Maybe around Fargo or maybe back home in Kansas City.

FARGO—Brock Reller picked the right time to strike out the most batters he ever has. In a do-or-die play-in game at the Class AA American Legion state baseball tournament, the lefthanded Reller fanned 15 Jamestown batters to lift Grand Forks to a 5-0 win Tuesday at Jack Williams Stadium. "You could say I was in a groove ... for most of the time anyway," said Reller, who in eight innings of work allowed only two hits and walked only one batter. His previous high strikeout count was 13 two summers ago.
Dickinson, the team with the most success in North Dakota Class A baseball, showed West Fargo Sheyenne, the team with the least Class A experience, how to play in a state championship game. Ripping the ball for 13 hits, Dickinson claimed an 8-1 victory in the Class A state championship Saturday, June 4, at Jack Brown Stadium. The Midgets, appearing in their 12th state tournament, claimed their fifth state title. No other Class A team has more than two titles. Meanwhile, Sheyenne's hopes for a first state crown in its first year as a varsity program fell short.
FARG -- Seniors Walker Carr, Billy Holtan and Riley Lura--the "Big Three" of Carrington--captured their state titles, as expected. And Carrington, as expected, won its second straight individual team championship, scoring 237 points to break the record it set last year by four points. But when freshman teammate Lucas Geiszler joined the fun with a 120-pound state championship, they couldn't help but smile. "I knew he could do it all along," Holtan said of Geiszler. "I wrestled against him in practice, so I know how good he is."
FRISCO, Texas - North Dakota State football fans roared for Brock Jensen on Friday night. But this time, Jensen was not wearing a football uniform. Jensen, the quarterback who guided NDSU to its last three national championships, took to the stage during the NDSU pep fest at Allen Event Center.
As North Dakota State’s athletic department prepares to leave its home at the Bison Sports Arena, it announced Wednesday that the men’s basketball team will play its home games for the next two years off campus at Scheels Arena. NDSU and Scheels Arena announced a two-year agreement to play Bison men’s basketball games at the venue located in southwest Fargo, about 8½ miles from campus. It’s one part of a major transition NDSU athletics will endure during the renovation of the Bison Sports Arena — which will be named Scheels Center at the Sanford Health Athletic Complex when completed in the
FARGO — It was only 17 days ago when Saul Phillips was the head coach of a North Dakota State men’s basketball team that had just knocked off Oklahoma in the NCAA Tournament. Equally as refreshing as NDSU’s upset win was Phillips’ comedic relief during one of the press conferences held in Spokane, Wash. Phillips, never one to shy away from loosening up a crowd of media hounds, mentioned an online poll ranking the 68 NCAA Tournament coaches according to their college playing careers. Phillips ranked 52nd.
Dane Fife, an assistant coach for the Michigan State men’s basketball team that will be playing for an NCAA Division I tournament Sweet 16 appearance today in Spokane Arena, knows Saul Phillips.
