Two wins by way of fall propelled Stone to the quarterfinal, where he fell 7-5 to Steven Lawrence of Grand View (Iowa).

Nineteen shots. That's what it took to finally break Watford City goaltender Jeanine Miller. The Dickinson High girls hockey team peppered her throughout the first period to the tune of 16 shots, but she accurately read back-handed attempts and breakaways, including one from close range from North Dakota-leading scorer Taia Klaman. Two minutes and one second into the middle frame, senior forward/defender Kennedy Kuntz put a crack in Watford City's wall.

The Dickinson High boys hockey team won a game in regulation, and while it seems like it shouldn't be, that small feat was exciting. Four of the team's last five games went to overtime, with only one of them finishing in the Midgets' favor.

Five Dickinson High wrestlers competed three times on Friday, but just two won all three matches by way of fall. In the 120-pound weight class, senior Josh Johnson pinned all of his opponents, each in less than a 80 seconds and the fastest coming in 1:08 over Turtle Mountain's Frank Chapman.
Coming off back-to-back conference wins at home last weekend, the Dickinson State women's basketball team was hoping to carry their confidence and success against Valley City State, and in the first half, it did that.

However, committing 14 turnovers while letting up on defense, Dickinson State allowed the Vikings to pull away in the second half, going on to win 75-63 on Friday, Jan. 18 at Scott Gym.
