FARGO -- A day after ending NDSU's Summit League tournament dominance, UND softball couldn't continue its postseason magic against second seeded Omaha. The Mavericks shut the Fighting Hawks out on Thursday, 5-0. With the loss, UND moves onto the loser-out game against the top seed SDSU.

Less than 48 hours from the Walleye opener in Minnesota, anglers are getting last minute preparations finished up. That means fishers are getting the newest and latest equipment for the start of the 2021 season. Scheels fishing manager Matt Schneider says this year, he's seen more people trying fishing out for the first time, or returning after a long time away.

"I've started to see the customer that hasn't fished for 30-40 years," Schneider said. "They're starting to get back into it with everything that's happening with the pandemic."
