FARGO, ND – Rosters have been announced for the Optimist All-Star Volleyball series. Coaches changed the way the teams are determined this year. The process is designed to make the teams as equitable as possible while keeping the number of Class A and Class B players evenly distributed on each team. This results in a Red Team and a Blue team (replacing the East/West of the past). Players are placed on teams by position rather than location of their high school in the state.
Eden Olson from Our Redeemer’s was chosen as setter for the Red Team with Sydney Upton of Bishop Ryan and Riley Hauf of Drake-Anamoose as outside hitters. Kenmare coach Tim Wallstrum is one of the coaches for the Red Team. The Blue Team includes Emily Degree of Des Lacs-Burlington at middle hitter, and Alissa Haugland of Divide County and Kinsey Zuroff of Beulah at outside hitter.
The Optimist All Star matches will be held at Fargo Shanley on June 13 and at Bismarck High on June 14.

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Byron Buxton and Luis Arraez each had three hits and Dylan Bundy earned his first win in a Twins uniform as Minnesota won its series finale against the Seattle Mariners 4-0 on Monday night. The Twins, who hit six home runs Sunday, entered the day leading the majors with nine. Minnesota didn’t go deep for the first time all season but scored enough runs anyway as it split the four-game series. After Jorge Polanco doubled in Buxton for the first run in the first inning, the Twins scored on three straight singles in the fifth. Arraez, Polanco and Gio Urshela all picked up RBI singles as Minnesota built a 4-0 lead. That was enough run support for Bundy, who tossed five scoreless innings to win his Twins debut. The right-hander allowed just one hit, a two-out double in the second. He struck out two and walked one in 67 pitches.
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Minnesota Timberwolves head coach Chris Finch signed a multi-year contract extension on Monday, after guiding the team to seventh place in the Western Conference and a play-in game berth. Terms of the deal were not disclosed. The Timberwolves also announced contract extensions for Finch’s assistants, the day before they host the Los Angeles Clippers for a spot in the playoffs. Finch has a 62-61 record for the second-best winning percentage (.504) by a head coach in Timberwolves history. The late Flip Saunders (.521) is first. Minnesota went 46-36 this season, the second-best record for the long-languishing franchise over the past 18 years. The 52-year-old Finch has been an assistant with Toronto, New Orleans, Denver and Houston. The Timberwolves led the NBA in scoring this season at 115.9 points per game, a first in franchise history. Their defense also forced a league-leading average of 16.3 turnovers per game.
