As the engines roar through the evening each Monday night, Lincoln Korynta can only think one thing.

"I like racing," he exclaims.

It's easy to see why the seven-year-old novice driver, along with his five-year-old brother River, look forward to raceday for six nights a week.

The sport runs in their family, starting with their grandfather, Scott Zwetzig.

"I raced in the 80s, early 90s," he said. "Raced through Lisbon, Grand Forks. I had my wife race one year before we got married."

Lincoln and River's dad, Ryan, was just like them growing up.

"I went to the races every Friday night," he said. "I would have definitely drove if I had the opportunity."

It would only be a matter of time before the brothers would join the club. >>> Full story here.

Fargo Davies rising senior Oliver Lucht believed he had NCAA Division I football potential and that proved to be an accurate assessment of his talent.

Lucht verbally committed to North Dakota State, he announced Tuesday, July 26, via social media.

“You bet on yourself all the time,” Lucht said. “I’ve always thought I had the capability to be a Division I player.”

The 6-foot-1, 200-pound Lucht is projected to play inside linebacker for the Bison. He had multiple Division I offers, including North Dakota and St. Thomas. Lucht also had multiple Division II offers, including Minnesota State Moorhead.

“It’s finally good to get (the recruiting process) done with and focus on the high school season and hopefully get a state championship,” said Lucht, who was a North Dakota Class 11AA first-team, all-state defensive selection as a junior at Davies. >>> Full story here.

On Sunday, that meant scoreless performances from Cody Stashak, who followed Paddack and threw 2⅔ innings, Caleb Thielbar, who struck out all three batters he faced, Joe Smith, Tyler Duffey and Emilio Pagán, who locked down the save after allowing a pair of baserunners in the ninth.
