SDSU joins list of schools to snub Sioux

May 2, 2012

FARGO, N.D. (AP) — The leader of University of North Dakota’s alumni on Tuesday kicked off a campaign to dump the school’s Fighting Sioux nickname by reeling off a list of schools that will no longer schedule UND in certain athletics until the issue is resolved.
Tim O’Keefe, CEO of the UND Alumni Association and Foundation, said neighboring South Dakota State has joined an increasing number of schools to snub the Grand Forks college because of the nickname. Other schools include Minnesota, Wisconsin, Iowa and Minnesota-Morris.

Seniors Willson, Jacob lead Hi-Liner sprinters

May 2, 2012

Entering her senior season, Valley City High School sprinter Molly Willson knew that her older sister, Morgen, was quite the athlete during her time at VCHS.
What Molly didn’t realize, though, was that Morgen held the school record in the 200 meter dash.
“I didn’t know she held the record until this year,” Molly said.
So when she found out, she made it her goal to make the record her own, a task she hopes to achieve by the end of the season.
