VALLEY CITY, ND – The North Dakota High School Activities Association has given the go ahead for a 3-class system for volleyball. The Board voted on Tuesday to add a third division of volleyball starting in the fall of 2025. Guidelines and classifications for the new three-division volleyball format will be updated throughout the 2023-24 academic year with final Board approval by June 2024. North Dakota will begin a three-class system for basketball this school year and when it was approved last spring it was widely expected that volleyball would follow suit.
CLEVELAND (AP) — Jorge Polanco hit a sacrifice fly and Donovan Solano added a three-run triple in Minnesota’s five-run eighth inning as the Twins pushed their lead in the American League Central to seven games over second-place Cleveland with an 8-3 win over the Guardians on Tuesday night. Polanco hit a shot deep enough to right off Trevor Stephan (6-6) to score pinch-runner Joey Gallo and break a 3-3 tie. Later in the inning, Solano’s liner to center skipped past outfielder Myles Straw and rolled to the wall, clearing the bases. By winning the first two games of the critical three-game series, Minnesota, which has been atop the division since mid-July, moved seven games above .500 for the first time in 2023. More importantly, they probably put away the defending division champion Guardians with just 23 games left. Still, the Twins, who improved 4-1 on this road trip and are playing their best ball this season, aren’t taking anything for granted. Minnesota’s Christian Vázquez, who hit a game-tying homer in the sixth off Guardians reliever Matt Moore, led off the eighth with a single and Willi Castro doubled down the left-field line. Gallo came on for Vázquez and scored easily on Polanco’s fly ahead of Will Brennan’s throw. Stephan’s wild pitch made it 5-3, and the right-hander walked two and hit a batter to set up Solano’s shot — a potential knockout blow for Cleveland. Bo Naylor hit a two-run homer for the Guardians, who were blown out 20-6 in Monday’s series opener. Griffin Jax (6-8) struck out two in one inning after coming on for starter Sonny Gray, who gave up three runs and six hits in six innings. Caleb Thielbar worked the eighth and Emilio Pagán finished up for Minnesota.
The rivals meet for the final time in 2023 this afternoon with Guardians rookie RHP Gavin Williams (1-5, 3.46 ERA) starting against Twins RHP Joe Ryan (10-8, 4.20).
