10 YEARS AGO (2009): Mott-Regent's strong finish was enough to earn a 3-2 volleyball victory at Scranton. The Cardinals closed with a 15-8 fifth-game win after taking the first two sets and dropping the next two. Shelby Miller and Jill Zimmerman led the Mott-Regent attack with 13 and 12 kills, respectively. Taylor Kelner tallied eight kills for Scranton.

20 YEARS AGO (1999): Missy Miller of Bismarck bowled a perfect 300 game at Midway Lanes on the way to an incredible 846 series. She started with a 267, followed that with a 279 and finished with a 300. She rolled 33 strikes out of a possible 36. Her 846 is believed to be a state record.

50 YEARS AGO (1969): Lee DeForest shot a one-over par 71 to lead a field of 40 golfers who doggedly battled cold, gusty weather in the City Championship golf tournament at Tom O'Leary golf course. Runner-up Jim Kanthack shot a 75.
