We are sad to report that former Crookston Pirate Boys Hockey Coach Mike Lundby passed away at the age of 72.
He grew up in Riverside Park in Grand Forks and graduated from St. James High School in 1969. Mike then attended UND and proudly played hockey for the Fighting Sioux from 1970-1973.

Mike coached in Crookston, Owatanna, and East Grand Forks. Mike taught social studies and coached hockey, football, and golf. He was the founder of the Greenwave girl’s hockey program and served on many boards, including as President of the Minnesota Hockey Coaches Association.

I was fortunate to know Mike and his family well. My dad and Mike were great friends.

He was a great guy and will be missed!

I was in Warroad on Monday and drove by the football field (the site of Hockey Day Minnesota) and noticed the field was being dug up. I was told they are digging up the field to put the rink for Hockey Day Minnesota in that spot, and in the spring, they are going to redo the track and put artificial turf in. I haven’t confirmed that, but the person who told me would know. So, Hockey Day Minnesota in Warroad will not only give the community a big boost, but it will help football, track, and other student-athletes and the community.

We had the Fertile-Beltrami Football playoff games on KROX Radio again this year, and the listenership was awesome!

In the state quarterfinal game vs Goodridge/Grygla we had 3,010 people listening online, the app, or smart speaker.
In the state semi-final game vs Kingsland we had 3,883 people listening online, the app, or a smart speaker.

We like to think we do a good job covering all the games we do, and we thank everyone for tuning in on the radio or online, the app, or smart speaker!!!

Fertile-Beltrami lost to Kingsland in a great game. They lose two seniors, Caiden Swenby and Derek Sorenson. Those two will be impossible to replace, but the good news……EVERYBODY else comes back next year. There is no doubt that the future is bright and a fourth straight trip to the state semi-finals is within reach IF the players keep putting in the time they have for several years.

The Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference (NSIC) Board of Directors approved the addition of the University of Jamestown (UJ) as the league’s 16th full-time member. The Jimmies will become official members of the league on July 1, 2025, pending their acceptance into the NCAA Division II membership process. UJ would participate in 17 of the NSIC’s 18 sponsored sports beginning in the 2025-26 academic year.

“The NSIC is excited to invite the University of Jamestown as the 16th member of the conference starting July 1, 2025,” stated NSIC Commissioner Erin Lind. “Throughout the application process, the strategic work Dr. Peterson and the University of Jamestown engaged in to prepare for the NCAA Division II and NSIC membership transition was evident. The University is well positioned and will be a valuable addition to the conference athletically and academically.”

“The University of Jamestown has strategically developed into a comprehensive institution, including the development of excellent programs and facilities. Concurrently, they have dedicated resources toward the development of competitive athletic programs; for this reason, we feel confident that the University of Jamestown will be a very good addition to the Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference,” said Dr. Tim Downs, President of Minnesota State University Moorhead and Chair of the NSIC Board of Directors.

Located in Jamestown, North Dakota, UJ currently enrolls 1,289 students in 54 undergraduate programs, three graduate programs, seven accelerated certificates, a doctoral program in Physical Therapy, and a PhD program in Clinical Research.

UJ is expected to file its application with the NCAA by the February 1 deadline and then will officially begin its transition into the conference. With a successful NCAA Division II membership application, UJ will enter a three-year transition period before earning NCAA active membership status. The 2024-25 academic year will be the Jimmies’ last in the NAIA.

During its second year of the provisional period (2025-26), UJ will be included in NSIC team schedules, but the Jimmies will not be eligible for NCAA Championships. In the third year of the transition, UJ will be granted provisional membership in NCAA Division II and will continue to play a NSIC conference schedule but will still not be able to compete in the NCAA Championships.

The Jimmies will gain NCAA Division II active member status in the fall of 2027, as long as all benchmarks are met during the transition process, and will be eligible to compete in the NCAA Championships during the 2027-28 academic year.

Speaking of the NSIC. The University of Mary is going to have major upgrades to the athletic facilities and looking to move football, soccer, and track back on campus!

Phase II of the University of Mary’s three-phase $272 million Vision 2030 Capital Campaign that launched in 2015 already got off to a tremendous start in February of 2022 following a hiatus caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. Phase I closed in January of 2019 by surpassing its goal with just over $100 million raised total. Phase II was launched with a $12 million gift from Harold Hamm and Continental Resources, and now through the generosity of others who have come forward with a very significant and generous gift allowing the University of Mary to move forward with plans for a new Athletics Complex on campus.

“In early November we received news about a transformative gift which was the answer to many, many prayers,” announced University of Mary President Monsignor James Shea.

The beginning of Phase II of the Vision 2030 campaign had four pillars and helped establish the new Saint Gianna School of Health Sciences and complete the new Hamm School of Engineering. The final two pillars include plans for an all-new Athletics Complex just east of the fieldhouse that would run parallel with highway 1804 and a Welcome Center on south campus.

Just over a year ago on November 7, 2022, as part of Phase II the University of Mary announced plans for a new Athletics Complex that would bring football, baseball, soccer, and outdoor track competition back to campus for the ultimate student, fan, and scholar-athlete gameday experience.

Meanwhile, the Marauders baseball team will continue to play their home games in town at the beautiful Bismarck Municipal Ballpark sharing it with the baseball community. It is already regarded as one of the best facilities in the Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference (NSIC) and region and is continually updated and renovated with improvements.

A guy walks into a bar and sees a sign hanging over the bar that reads –
Cheese Sandwich – $1.50
Chicken Sandwich – $2.50
Handjobs – $10

Checking his wallet while walking up to the bar, he walks up to the beautiful blonde working behind the bar.  The bartender asks the man if she could help him. He responds yes and asks if she is the one that gives the handjobs. She says yes, I am. The man replies…..well, go wash your hands, I want a cheese sandwich.
