FARGO—A group's two-year mission to move the North Dakota high school girls soccer season from the spring to the fall continues. And the group asked to make the change continues to play the waiting game. The tug-of-war match doesn't appear to be ending soon. Both sides are waiting to see what the U.S. Office of Civil Rights has to say about a grievance filed back in 2016 claiming the North Dakota High School Activities Association is violating the Title IX sexual-discrimination law by forcing girls soccer to compete in the spring while boys play in the fall.
FARGO—For the second straight year, a lower-seeded Bismarck Legacy knocked off a higher-seeded Fargo Davies in the opening round of the North Dakota Class A state girls basketball tournament. Last year's overtime win may have come as a surprise to some, but Thursday, March 8's, 68-38 win was a margin of victory no one was expecting at the Fargodome.
FARGO—When West Fargo Sheyenne sharpshooter Maggie Manson put up her first shot of Thursday, March 8's, North Dakota Class A state girls basketball tournament game, it was blocked by Bismarck Century's Lauren Ware. Welcome to playing against a 6-foot-4 sophomore center who is already being recruited by Division I schools. Welcome to playing against a Century team that has lost only once this season. Welcome to playing in your school's first state tournament in the Fargodome—where Sheyenne lost 66-42 to a Century team playing in its 34th state tournament.
FARGO—It was not the way Paul Miller, A.J. Jacobson and Spencer Eliason wanted to end their last basketball game in the Scheels Center. And it was not the way North Dakota State's men's basketball team wanted to be playing heading into the last week of the regular season. But it was the way Fort Wayne wanted to play, finally finding a way to win a road game with an 84-72 Summit League win before 3,348 fans who said good-bye to seniors like Miller and Jacobson, and Eliason , a junior who has opted to end his playing career.
FARGO—Laken Boese, who earlier on Friday got upset in the individual semifinals, made up for his loss by knocking off the wrestler who beat him and sparking Bismarck to a 32-20 win over Mandan to claim the North Dakota Class B dual team state championship in the Fargodome. Boese, the top seed at 120 pounds, got pinned by No. 5 seed Corey Hooker. So a few hours later, Boese made sure not to get pinned this time. His 2-1 win ended a rally in which Minot had cut Bismarck's lead to 19-14.
FORT WAYNE, Ind.—Bryson Scott scored a game-high 31 points to lead Fort Wayne to a 92-88 victory against North Dakota State on Saturday in Summit League men's basketball at Memorial Coliseum. The Bison led by as many as 15 points late in the first half before the Mastodons rallied for victory. Fort Wayne used a 10-0 run in the final four minutes to overcome NDSU. Paul Miller paced the Bison with 21 points, nine rebounds and five assists. AJ Jacobson added 21 points, including 5-for-7 shooting from 3-point range.
Q: If you could have one super power, what would it be? A: Oh man, this is something that I have thought about forever. Because I want to be a super hero so bad. It would just have to be super strength. Right away, I can be faster and that is something that I am bad it. Super strong, you can help so many people like that. Whenever I think of super strength, I think of the Hulk, and I love that. Q: What is the most embarrassing song on your phone or iPod? A: 'A Thousand Miles', Vanessa Carleton.

Q: If you could have one super power, what would it be? A: Breath under water, for sure. If I could have a super power, that's what it would be. I scuba dive a lot. So I just love it. It's a totally different world under there. Q: What is the most embarrassing song on your phone or iPod? A: Boy, that's a good one ... it would probably be "Fireflies" by Owl City. That's an oldie. Q: Where do you see yourself in five years?
Q: If you could have one super power, what would it be? A: I would probably have to say flying. That's something that I've always wanted to do. Airplanes really intrigue.

Probably 'She Thinks My Tractor's Sexy." Q: Where do you see yourself in five years?
