“Score points, win, and pin.” Remington Meagher’s plan for the upcoming wrestling season is a simple one. And while the Wolves wrestling program hopes to see plenty of that from him on the mats this winter, the coaches at Minnesota State University Moorhead have high hopes for him as well as the...

  No one knew quite what to expect out of the Tigers football team coming into the season. Fresh off a 10-1 year where they reached the state tournament, they had several skill players back, but needed to replace 12 linemen with players who had zero experience even at the junior varsity level. Not...
