FARGO — The Fargo Force have narrowed their search for a head coach down to three candidates. "We're very close," Force president Jon Kram said Wednesday. "We'd like to have this done before the (United States Hockey League) draft." Kram would not comment on who the three candidates brought in for interviews were. The USHL draft is from May 4-5. The Force have an opening at head coach after John Marks retired after the last game of the 2014-15 regular season.
MOORHEAD — Moorhead freshman baseball player Sam Haiby pushes both feet into the dirt and kicks it back into the wind with the right foot when stepping to the plate. Two taps of the left side of the plate, a couple twirls forward of the bat overhead and few back and forth beneath the knees. From there, Haiby's eyes are locked into the pitcher. The stance resembles no baseball player, just as Haiby resembles no teammate or opponent. "I've never modeled my stance off of anyone," Haiby said. "I just go up there and do my own thing." Haiby's "own thing" is something that is unique.

DILWORTH — Perham junior Dylan Perrine yelled at Yellowjackets baseball coach Hans Hanson that he was not hitless in 11 at-bats coming into Friday's Minnesota Class 2A baseball matchup against Dilworth-Glyndon-Felton. "Hanson, I had one hit," Perrine yelled. "We counted that as a hit?" Hanson snapped back. Considering each went over 320 feet, there was no doubt whether his two hits Friday counted, as Perrine homered twice to keep No. 7-ranked Perham undefeated with a 6-5 win over D-G-F.
