MOORHEAD—Fargo North sophomore pole vaulter Connor Fuglseth wasn't sure what was going on in the jumping pits toward the end of the event Friday afternoon at Jake Christiansen Stadium during the Shanley Invitational. Fuglseth knew at the very least he had qualified for state, clearing 12-feet, 6 inches, but after he and Fargo South senior Jason Klug failed to clear 13-0, it appeared the winner would be determined by number of misses at the previous heights. The ledger proved the two vaulters were deadlocked and a "jump off" would be needed.

WEST FARGO—Not much was going on at home plate Friday in the opening game of the Eastern Dakota Conference baseball doubleheader between West Fargo and Fargo North at Veterans Memorial Field.
