10 YEARS AGO (2010): For a 25-year-old, Jim Petrik has coached in a lot of places. But his fifth stop in as many seasons feels like home. Petrik has been named the new girls basketball coach at Shiloh Christian, returning to the school he helped to third place in the 2003 Class B state boys tournament. Since 2006, Petrik has been the head coach for the Wing-Tuttle-Robinson boys, the Wing girls and the Beulah girls. Last season he was a Century boys assistant.

20 YEARS AGO (2000): Bismarck High School goalie Layne Sedevie has been chosen to play for the United States under-18 national select team. He is believed to be the first North Dakotan to make the select team. The U.S. team will play in a tournament in Russia in August. Sedevie will begin his senior year at BHS in the fall. He is a two-time all-state selection.

50 YEARS AGO (1970): Dickinson scored four runs in the first three innings, but ragged defensive play and a lack of offense proved costly. Hettinger came back from a slow start to pin a 9-4 American Legion baseball loss on home-standing Dickinson. Winning pitcher Tim Smith went the distance for Hettinger, allowing six hits and four runs, all of which were unearned.


R.A. Dickey (2012) and Jake Arrieta (2015) won N.L. Cy Young Awards for the New York Mets and Chicago Cubs, respectively.
