June 13, 2012

FARGO, N.D. (AP) — North Dakota voters decided Tuesday to let the state’s flagship university dump a controversial Fighting Sioux nickname that sparked threats of NCAA sanctions, ending — at least temporarily — a dispute simmering for decades that divided sports fans, alumni and even tribes.
The matter boiled over seven years ago when the University of North Dakota was placed on a list of schools with American Indian nicknames that the NCAA deemed hostile and abusive. Those colleges were told to dump the names or risk penalties against their athletic teams.

The Valley City Babe Ruth baseball team had its offense clicking on all cylinders in a double-header sweep of Edgeley Tuesday at Charlie Brown Memorial Field.
In two games that lasted a combined eight innings, Valley City scored 41 runs and had 28 hits. The day started with a 29-2 win in five innings in the first game and concluded with a 12-3 win in a three-inning second game.
“Its nice to see our offense continue to go like it has, and for the most part we haven’t been relying on walks, we have been aggressive and collecting hits,” Valley City coach Lance Lukes said.
