FARGO -- UND football will not lack for experience when the fall season arrives. Seven seniors announcing today they'll be back for next season. Five of those were starters during the spring season: cornerback Evan Holm, safeties Jordan Canady and Hayden Galvin, and linebackers Jaxson Turner and Ray Haas.

Additionally, senior kicker Adam Stage, backup linebacker Ty Shannon, and transfer wide receiver Jake Richter are all returning as well.

It's been a year of milestones for Moorhead boys Lacrosse. First winning season, first postseason win, and now a first trip to the state tournament.


The Spuds knew those times would come, just not this soon.

"Feels like a trail-blazer, like we can set the culture and tradition for the lacrosse program and it feels really great," said senior attack Kenny Bohney.

"It's crazy, I feel like we just went at warp speed through the channels," said head coach Andrew Law. "This is unprecedented territory for us."
