SECTION ELLIG SPORTS DESCRIPTION COMPLEX

C

ompleted in the spring of 1997 at a cost of $2.3 million, the Ellig Sports Complex includes two soccer fields, four softball fields, and the Schlanser Track. The complex is named for Renola and Sheldon Ellig, who were driving forces in getting the facility built. The track is named in memory of Fred Schlanser Sr. Seating capacity for soccer is 3,500 at the Ellig Sports Complex, where the NDSU soccer team plays its home games on a natural grass surface. Bleacher seating was transplanted from Dacotah Field, the former home field of the Bison football team. A restroom and concession stand building was completed in 2003 near the northwest corner of the field. The facility has an enclosed press box atop the east grandstand that can hold about 20 media members and game day staff. A separate practice area is available on the west side of the complex. The Bison hold a 91-25-5 all-time record at home, including a .757 mark at the Ellig Sports Complex where the Bison are 80-24-5 since its 1997 opening. NDSU had its best home campaign in 1996, one year before moving into The Ellig, when it went 8-0 at the Cardinal Muench Seminary grounds in north Fargo. The Bison also posted a perfect home record in 2005 when they went 7-0 at the Ellig Sports Complex. Over the last three seasons, the Bison have gone 13-0 at home in Summit League games. Overall, the team has a record of 22-2-1 the past three years at home and carries a 14-game unbeaten streak into the 2012 season. The Ellig Sports Complex has also hosted the North Dakota Special Olympics, NCAA softball regionals, and professional soccer exhibitions. The soccer team also has access to the new Dacotah Field, which has been redone with SprinTurf. The field is regulation size and can be used for practices.

2012 PREVIEW First-year North Dakota State head soccer coach Mark Cook shouldn't have to worry about upsetting the apple cart with new schemes, new tactics, or a new way of conducting day-to-day business. When half of the team and all the coaches are new, everybody is bound to learn something. North Dakota State has 11 newcomers including 10 freshmen on its 22-player roster. Only four starters return from last year's team that went 15-4-2 overall and placed second in The Summit League with a 7-1-1 record before falling to Oakland in the league championship game. This is the first collegiate job for Cook, who spent the last 11 years as the director of coaching for the Minnesota Thunder Academy. But he says his style won't change just because he's in the college game now. In fact, that might be the easy part. "Where I came from, you had nine months to develop a team," Cook said. "The big transition is here you have 22 kids and you've got a very short season to mold them into a team, get them prepared, get them buying into your system, and you have three months to perform." And Cook knows performance matters. Where the club game is about development over time, college soccer is about wins and losses and making a run at the postseason. But it's going to be a step-by-step process.

"We know we're young, we know we're inexperienced," Cook said. "I want to make sure we're an intelligent team. I want them to learn the system, learn the style of game we want to play, and understand our defensive principles." Two of North Dakota State's returning starters are All-Summit League senior midfielder Holly Christian and junior forward Katie Tallas, who is NDSU's top returning scorer with six goals a year ago. Sophomore forward Tristyn Walczak and sophomore defender Taylor Stainbrook have both been out of training due to knee injuries. Cook says those two losses, plus two incoming freshmen with knee injuries, have slowed the development of the team. "I think if you put a new head coach into a situation and said 'here's the worst possible scenario' as far as health goes, I think we've had it to be honest," Cook said. "It's been an adventure. We haven't been able to play 11 aside, which is an important part of preparation for games." Because NDSU's roster essentially is whittled down to 16 position players plus two goalkeepers entering the first weekend of play at Boise State, Cook says they've prepared accordingly. It will be a tough physical test with temperatures in the upper 90s and playing at elevation with a short bench. "We've talked all week about being smart defensively, not conserving energy but using energy when we need to. If we can't win a ball, don't make a 40-yard run just chasing it for the sake of chasing it," he said. That smart, conservative style is in line with Cook's principles for the team. He says it's important to build a style that is based on the players.

NORTH DAKOTA STATE UNIVERSITY SOCCER


"You have to play to your strength," Cook said. "We're probably not the quickest team, so we have to be more possession orientated. We're not going to be a team that runs up and down the field a hundred miles an hour. We have to be organized defensively getting numbers behind the ball." One of the biggest question marks for North Dakota State entering the season was goalkeeping with freshman Katie McCormick and redshirt freshman Sierra Bonham contending for the open spot. Bonham has a slight edge with a year of collegiate training under her belt, but Cook says both are good shot-stoppers and showed well during the exhibition game with Creighton. "Each came up with big saves, but more importantly they directed their team, they controlled their box, they did the little things well," Cook said. "When you have inexperienced keepers they tend to be a little more hesitant, maybe not as aggressive, and I thought that was the biggest plus. They were willing to risk their body and come off the line." North Dakota State turns to a pair of senior veterans to anchor the back line in Brooklyn Dyce and Shannon Brooks, while junior Sheri Fitzsimmons and freshman Meghan Johnston are the outside backs. Cook says the biggest question in the backfield is finding depth and the rotation might include Walczak, who has the speed to match a fast opposing forward. "We ask them to be intelligent defenders," Cook said. "We have to give up some territory, keep the game in front of us, and then know when we have opportunities to step and know when to drop." The Bison return junior Steph Jacobson and sophomore Anisha Kinnarath, a Summit League All-Freshman selection last year, to the midfield position, and Cook says the Bison will rely heavily on the 5-foot-11 Christian not only for her ability to disrupt opponents in passing lanes, but also for her leadership.

"We're hoping Katie can do a lot for us being our leading returning scorer," Cook said, "but it's probably a little less familiar for her in the new system because she's asked to defend a little more. She's a good ball-striker, she has good speed, and it's going to be her job to try and stretch our opponent. Jaclyn has the same role on the other side." The Bison have a tough non-conference schedule which has them playing eight of their first nine games on the road. The home opener is Sept. 7 against Bemidji State and Summit League play begins Sept. 29 with a home game against South Dakota State. "The non-conference schedule will be a big learning curve for us," Cook said. "Our goal is to get better every game so when we get to The Summit League we have a good idea where we stand, we've solved a lot of our problems, and now we can come out and be really competitive." The Bison were picked to finish fourth in the nine-team Summit League. Oakland and South Dakota State were first and second in a close vote, and Kansas City was third. The top four teams in the regular season standings advance to the Summit League tournament Nov. 2-4 at South Dakota State where the winner moves on to the NCAA playoffs. "Oakland is very good. South Dakota State is very good. I think you could put the other teams into a hat and it could be any one of us," Cook said. "But if you get in the top four and have played teams once already, I think as a coaching staff and players we can give ourselves a pretty good chance of winning the Summit League tournament."

"Holly's a good ball-winner and we certainly ask her to win everything we can in the air," he said. "And she's a fifth-year senior, so her leadership is critical both on and off the field." The Bison also gained some valuable experience with the addition of Jordyn Wallenborn, who transferred from Minnesota State Moorhead. "We didn't know what to expect coming in with her," Cook said. "She's good technically and she's an intelligent player." Two of NDSU's faster players up front are Tallas and fellow sophomore Jaclyn Scanlan. Cook says they will play a hybrid forward/midfield position on the outsides with redshirt freshman Mary Krambeer as the main target forward.

NCAA PLAYOFFS

2010 NCAA DIVISION I TOURNAMENT NDSU makes first appearance after winning Summit League title

Senior Quin Ryan scored the game-tying goal in the 75th minute.

ST. PAUL, Minn. – North Dakota State fell to No. 9 Texas A&M in a penalty shootout, 4-3, after a 1-1 draw in double overtime in the first round of the NCAA Women’s Soccer Championship Friday, Nov. 12, at Elizabeth Lyle Robbie Stadium. The Bison finished the season 12-5-6. “We played tremendous tonight,” said head coach Pete Cuadrado. “It was a really great team effort. Penalties are always a tough way to lose, but I’m very proud of our team and how they played tonight.” The Aggies took a 1-0 lead in the seventh minute as Rachel Shipley scored on a penalty kick after a Texas A&M player was taken down in the box. The Bison responded well after going down early, marching back down the field to earn two corner kicks. The team was unable to get a shot off though. With 11 minutes left in the half, a Quin Ryan cross started a spell of Bison possession at the top of the box, but they were again unable to put the ball on goal. Texas A&M held a 4-0 lead in shots on goal in the first half and Bertsch made three saves for the Bison. The Aggies had the first chance of the second half, but Meritt Mathias’ free kick was sent high. Junior Michelle Gaffaney tallied NDSU’s first shot on goal in the 51st minute after junior Abbey Stratton sent a free kick into the middle of the box. Texas A&M came close to a second goal in the 53rd minute, but Megan Majewski’s header hit the post off a corner kick before the Bison were able to clear the ball out of danger. Texas A&M came back with three close-range chances. Bertsch came up big to keep out the first attempt and the Bison defense blocked the next two. Senior Quin Ryan almost equalized for the Bison in the 61st minute, but her shot was deflected up onto the crossbar and out for a corner after Stratton’s initial shot was blocked.

Ryan tied the game at 1-1 in the 75th minute. After receiving a long pass from Gaffaney, she beat her defender to the inside and unleashed a cracking shot into the upper right corner from the left edge of the penalty area. It was her team-leading seventh goal of the season. Sophomore Brooklyn Dyce notched the final chance in regulation, but Aggie goalie Kristin Arnold came up with the save. The Bison outshot the Aggies, 3-1, in the first overtime period with Ryan notching all three attempts. In the second overtime, Shipley hit the crossbar for the Aggies on a looping shot from the top of the box, but that was the only dangerous look at goal for either team in the period. In the penalty shootout, senior Marissa Wolfgram stepped up and gave the Bison an early lead, sinking her shot in the lower left corner. Bertsch again came up big for the Bison, diving left to save the Aggies opening spot kick from Mary Grace Schmidt. Michelle Gaffaney put the Bison up 2-0 with a shot into the lower right corner. Rachel Shipley pulled one back for Texas A&M, sending her shot into the lower left. Ryan gave the Bison a 3-1 lead when she sent her shot down the middle as goalie Kelly Dyer dove right. Catalina Clavijo’s shot was tipped by Bertsch, but hit the post and rolled into the goal to cut the deficit to one. Sophomore Holly Christian’s attempt was saved by Dyer and Rachel Lenz tied the shootout at 3-3 with a shot into the right side of the net. Stratton’s penalty shot went wide and Merritt Mathias clinched the win for Texas A&M after making her spot kick. Bertsch made eight saves for the Bison. Texas A&M outshot NDSU, 23-11, and held a 9-4 edge in shots on goal. The Aggies advanced to play Minnesota in the second round.

THE SUMMIT LEAGUE “Ascending” and “improving” are adjectives frequently used in media coverage of The Summit League as it continues a renaissance on the playing field and in the classroom. As The Summit League celebrates its 30th anniversary season as an NCAA Division I athletics conference, the level of performance and achievement among the 11 member institutions and over 3,000 student-athletes in 19 championship sports continues to grow. Headlining The Summit League’s most recent history were the additions of the University of South Dakota and the University of Nebraska Omaha to its membership. USD joined in 2009 and the 2011-12 academic year marks its first full year of league competition. UNO’s membership took effect on July 1, 2011, and it will begin league competition in 2012-13. Originally formed in 1982 as the Association of Mid-Continent Universities and later known as the Mid-Continent Conference, The Summit League is in its fifth year of rebranding that followed its 25th anniversary and coincided with the Summit Plan, a strategic plan that places a renewed emphasis on improving the academic and athletic performances of all league student-athletes. The Summit League has a combined enrollment of more than 135,000 at 11 universities: IPFW (Indiana University-Purdue University Fort Wayne), IUPUI (Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis), UMKC (University of Missouri-Kansas City), the University of Nebraska-Omaha, North Dakota State University, Oakland University, Oral Roberts University, the University of South Dakota, South Dakota State University, Southern Utah University and Western Illinois University. The league has one other associate member, Eastern Illinois University, which competes in swimming and diving. Southern Utah University will leave for the Big Sky Conference after the 2011-12 year. These member institutions pride themselves on providing quality athletic, academic and social experiences for their student-athletes. The Summit League sponsors 19 championship sports, which include: baseball, men’s and women’s basketball, men’s and women’s cross country, men’s and women’s golf, men’s and women’s soccer, softball, men’s and women’s swimming and diving, men’s and women’s indoor track and field, men’s and women’s outdoor track and field, men’s and women’s tennis, and volleyball. The league champion receives automatic bids to the NCAA tournament in all applicable sports. Since its inception in 1982, The Summit League has had several transcendent moments on the national stage. In 1986, Cleveland State upset thirdseeded Indiana in the first round of the NCAA men’s basketball tournament

on its way to the Sweet 16. A decade later, Valparaiso captured the nation’s attention when Bryce Drew hit “the shot” to defeat No. 4 seed Mississippi in an NCAA first-round game and spark its Sweet 16 run. More recently, the Oral Roberts baseball program finished the 2004 campaign with a national ranking and became the first Summit League school to reach the NCAA Super Regionals in 2006. The league has produced five NCAA champions, four Olympic athletes, and several All-Americans in the sports of track and field, swimming and diving, and cross country. Numerous professionals and several draft choices have come directly from The Summit League, including three Major League Baseball first-round picks, a pair of NBA first-rounders and one WNBA selection. Former Summit Leaguers Kevin Duckworth (NBA) and Kevin Seitzer (MLB) each were two-time all-stars during their professional careers. Recent and historical success coupled with an increased growth among its membership base gives The Summit League a promising future on the landscape of college athletics.

NORTH DAKOTA STATE UNIVERSITY SOCCER


NORTH DAKOTA STATE UNIVERSITY

North Dakota State University is a shining example of a successful studentfocused, land-grant, research institution. With 80,000 living alumni, NDSU commands a powerful niche in higher education and the rest of the nation is noticing its accomplishments. The Carnegie Commission on Higher Education named NDSU to the elite “Research University/Very High Research” category, which represents the 108 most successful private and public universities in the United States. The classification is convincing recognition of NDSU’s position as a national research institution. “We have a strong sense of community and campus pride at NDSU. We are dedicated to the land-grant mission of quality education, leading research and outstanding service,” said President Dean L. Bresciani. “NDSU clearly makes a difference in the lives of students and the vitality of our community, state, region and nation.” Success comes from all sectors of this energized, vibrant university. NDSU enrolled 14,399 students during the fall 2011 semester in undergraduate and graduate programs, including about 2,150 graduate and professional students.

More than 1,200 international students from 80 countries attend classes. NDSU’s student-to-faculty ratio stands at 18:1. NDSU continues to excel in areas of innovative and technology-driven research, with more than $110 million in annual research expenditures. NDSU is listed in the top 40 research universities without a medical school in the United States, based on research expenditures reported to the National Science Foundation. NDSU consistently ranks in the top 100 research universities in the country in the areas of physical sciences, chemistry, social sciences and agricultural sciences. Bresciani, who was named NDSU’s 14th president on May 24, 2010, by the State Board of Higher Education, says a rare “window of opportunity” exists in North Dakota, and he has challenged the campus community to imagine how NDSU can help shape the state during the next century.

NDSU: yesterday and today

The state’s first land grant university was established as North Dakota Agricultural College on March 8, 1890, and organized for educational work on Oct. 15, 1890. President Horace E. Stockbridge and a five-member faculty welcomed the first class of 30 students as they took a winter agricultural course. Old Main, the campus’ landmark building, was completed in 1892. Renamed in 1960 as North Dakota State University of Agriculture and Applied Science, the institution educates students for a multitude of career opportunities. The university is comprised of the College of Agriculture, Food Systems, and Natural Resources; College of Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences; College of Business; College of Engineering and Architecture; College of Human Development and Education; College of Pharmacy, Nursing, and Allied Sciences; College of Science and Mathematics; College of University Studies; and College of Graduate and Interdisciplinary Studies. NDSU’s outstanding academic departments offer 102 bachelor degree programs, 67 master’s degree programs, 45 doctoral programs, an educational specialist degree and nine graduate certificate programs. Students work closely with NDSU’s chemists, engineers, architects, musicians, pharmacists, writers and other respected faculty who frequently are on the leading edge of research in their chosen areas. During fall 2010, NDSU had 720 ranked faculty and lecturers, program administrators and coaches, along with 180 part-time academic staff and 827 graduate assistants and fellows, according to the Office of Institutional Research and Analysis. The NDSU campus in Fargo consists of 119 buildings on approximately 42 square blocks or 258 acres. The university also has state-of-the-art facilities in downtown Fargo. In all, NDSU is located on 18,746 acres of North Dakota land, which includes the main Agricultural Experiment Station at Fargo. There are 53 local Extension offices and eight research Extension centers across the state. Dedicated to outreach efforts, the NDSU Extension Service conducts a rigorous education program in agriculture, human development, nutrition and youth and community development through its county, area and state staff. The NDSU Extension Service had more than 500,000 face-to-face contacts across the state during this past fiscal year, including 21,000 youth who participated in 4-H Club activities, day camp and after school programs. Members of NCAA Division I, the talented Bison athletic teams have enjoyed a long tradition of excellence. The student-athletes compete in first-class facilities – the Fargodome, Newman Outdoor Field, Ellig Sports Complex and Bison Sports Arena.

An energetic student body

The NDSU student body is a talented, dedicated and enthusiastic blend of international and ethnic backgrounds. More than 1,200 international students from 80 countries attend classes. NDSU has bilateral student exchange agreements with institutions in Australia, Chile, Denmark, France, Germany, India, Italy, Korea, Latvia, Mexico, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Spain, Sweden and the United Kingdom. There also are memorandums of understanding with other countries such as Belize, China, Malaysia, Sri Lanka and Thailand. NDSU students find it is easy to make friends and get involved with campus life. They can participate in more than 200 student organizations to develop personal and social relationships, explore new ideas, learn about people from around the world and augment their course work. The groups focus on academics, special interests, service, performing and visual arts, religion and recreation. There also are intercultural groups, honor societies, fraternities and sororities.

Fargo: a great place to live, work and study

The home of NDSU, Fargo is a bustling metropolitan area that is often listed as one of the best places to live in the country. Named an All-American City by the National Civic League in 2000, Fargo-Moorhead is the largest community between Minneapolis and Seattle. About 200,000 people make their home in Cass and Clay Counties.

As President Bresciani says, “The future of North Dakota is at a point of awakening – and our imagination is the only limit to the future. We at NDSU are poised to help make that future a reality. The best is yet to come.”

ATHLETIC DEPARTMENT Gene Taylor, athletic director When he came to North Dakota State University in the summer of 2001, Gene Taylor inherited a department surrounded by a whirlwind of questions. In his first year as the director of athletics at North Dakota State, Taylor was asked to spearhead a comprehensive study and evaluation of the Bison athletic department. He has guided the athletics program through the unpredictable waters of reclassification to NCAA Division I from Division II. One of most important pieces of the transition was securing conference affiliations for all 16 sports. The Bison are currently members of The Summit League, Missouri Valley Football Conference and Western Wrestling Conference. Taylor also played an instrumental part of forming the Great West Football Conference in February 2004, an affiliation that gave the Bison football program an immediate home in Division I. He served as chair of the coaches committee. The Bison football team won the 2011 FCS National Championship in their second playoff appearance. The NDSU men’s basketball, women’s volleyball and softball programs have qualified for NCAA national tournaments capped off by softball advancing to the 2009 Super Regional. Individuals representing the Bison women’s golf, track and field, and wrestling teams have competed at NCAA championships Also on the reclassification checklist: fundraising. The NDSU athletics budget has tripled from $5 million in Taylor’s first year to $15 million, while the scholarship endowment has grown to $11.2 million, and Team Makers booster club support has went from $750,000 to $2.3 million. The athletics program is two-thirds of the way in the $32 million Building the Competitive Edge campaign to construct the Sanford Health Athletic Complex. Twice Taylor has been recognized for his success by the National Association of Collegiate Directors of Athletics. He was selected as the FCS Central Region AD of the Year in June 2008 and June 2012. Taylor received the Blue Key Honor Society Doctor of Service Award, one of the most prestigious honors a NDSU faculty member can be bestowed in April 2012. A student assistant to the associate athletic director in his undergraduate days at Arizona State University, Taylor came to NDSU after a 15-year stint at Navy (1986-2001) as an administrative assistant, assistant ticket manager, ticket manager, assistant athletic director for tickets and operations, and associate athletic director. Taylor is a 1980 business management graduate of Arizona State, and he received his master’s degree in sports administration in 1985 from St. Thomas University in Florida. He worked in the ticket office at Southern Methodist University in 1985-86 directly before joining the Naval Academy and was in the private restaurant business before that for five years. His tenure at Navy included serving as the commissioner of the five-team Collegiate Sprint Football League that includes Army, Navy, Penn, Princeton and Cornell. Taylor and his wife, Cathy, are the parents of a daughter, Casey, and a son, Jared.

STUDENT-ATHLETE SUPPORT The NDSU athletic programs strive to provide personalized support for all student-athletes. The administrators, coaches and staff at NDSU have made a commitment to ensure that the needs of the student-athlete come first.

ACE: Academic collegiate enhancement

Intercollegiate athletics, in cooperation with Orientation and Student Success, offers an academic enhancement program designed to assist all student-athletes. Tutors are on site and assist student-athletes by providing one-on-one or small group assistance. Each head coach has specific academic criteria for admission into the program. In cooperation with various services and units available for students at NDSU, the ACE program includes: • Academic orientations • Helping student-athletes improve study skills for academic success • Identifying university resources to assist student-athletes • Coordinating structured study and tutorial programs • Monitoring semester and yearly academic progress

Residence life

Living on campus is an important part of the college experience. It’s a way to make new friends and join a variety of educational, cultural, social and recreational activities. National studies show students living on campus are more likely to persist in their education and earn higher GPAs than their off-campus peers. The Department of Residence Life offers a variety of options for on-campus living, from traditional men’s and women’s halls to four-bedroom apartments. The goal is to provide NDSU students a clean, safe, comfortable and affordable environment where academic success is encouraged and supported. On-campus living offers the opportunity to become part of a learning community.

Strength and conditioning

NDSU takes a comprehensive approach to the physical development of the student-athlete. Strength training, speed development, plyometrics, agility and conditioning programs are based on the specific movements and physiological demands of each sport. Under the supervision of NDSU’s four full-time strength and conditioning coaches, Bison student-athletes follow year-round training programs that increase each student-athlete’s level of strength, power, speed, agility, conditioning and flexibility.

Sports medicine

Student-athletes at NDSU receive outstanding care for athletic-related injuries. The athletic training staff has access to fully equipped facilities at the Bison Sports Arena, Bentson Bunker Fieldhouse, Fargodome and Newman Outdoor Field. Scott Woken, director of sports medicine, heads a staff of 10 certified athletic trainers who attend all practices and competitions, home and away. Plus, several talented and skilled Fargo-Moorhead area medical specialists assist in the diagnosis and treatment of Bison student-athletes.

Media coverage

The media spotlight shines on NDSU’s athletic teams from the opening of fall camps into the summer months. With four network television stations, three sports talk radio hosts, and the state’s largest daily newspaper all headquartered in Fargo, the Bison are continually a hot topic locally and in the region. Along with regular television news coverage on ABC, NBC, CBS and FOX affiliates, the Bison receive expanded regional and national coverage of select regular-season games and championship events on ESPN, Fox Sports Net, CBS College Sports, and other regional carriers.

GoBison.com

NORTH DAKOTA The Peace Garden State

One trip to North Dakota and you’ll understand why it’s known as the friendliest and safest state to visit. In fact, from agricultural products to quality of life, North Dakota is often at the top of the charts. Discover the spirit of North Dakota and unlock the fascinating stories from the state’s legendary past.The glow of the breathtaking Northern Lights shines brightly on the paths taken by historical legends George Armstrong Custer, Theodore Roosevelt, Sitting Bull, Meriwether Lewis, William Clark and Sakakawea along with the state’s contemporary heroes, Lawrence Welk, Peggy Lee, Roger Maris, Phil Jackson, Virgil Hill, Rick Helling, Darin Erstad and Travis Hafner. From the settlers of the past to the farmers of the present, agriculture always has been and will continue to be the strength of North Dakota. The state is home to some of the richest soil in the world. North Dakota is a prime exporter of agricultural products, taking the trophy in production of several crops. North Dakota ranks first in the production of flaxseed, canola, durum wheat, all dry edible beans, all dry edible peas, spring wheat, honey, lentils, sunflowers, barley and oats. About 10 percent of North Dakota’s area, the band of rich soil 40 miles west of the Red River, is often called the “Breadbasket of the World.” Livestock production is second only to wheat in North Dakota’s agricultural economy. It is most important in western North Dakota where the land is less suited for grain crops. The main livestock are beef, dairy cattle and hogs. The importance of cattle ranching has been challenged in recent years by the development of North Dakota’s tremendous oil and coal reserves. North Dakota’s oil reserves - known as the Bakken and the Three Forks Formations - have been making headlines for their size and viability. Some reports estimate the Bakken Formation could boost the U.S.’s oil reserves by 10x. Currently, an average of 218,000 barrels of oil are pumped from wells in North Dakota each day. In 2008, oil production became the #2 industry in North Dakota, which is the fourth largest oil producing state in the U.S. Gas was first discovered in North Dakota in 1907. Today more of the state’s natural gas is a by-product of oil production. More than 92-million cubic feet of natural gas is captured annually in North Dakota. Among coal-producing states, North Dakota ranks ninth and produces 3 percent of the nation’s output. North Dakota has one of the world’s largest deposits of lignite coal. Quality of life in the heartland is rarely matched. In its annual crime survey, CQ Press has ranked North Dakota the safest state in the nation in 11 of the last 15 years. There’s a little bit of something for everyone in North Dakota. The state is home to a variety of cultures, including Scandinavian, Ukrainian, German, Germans from Russia, and Native American. North Dakota’s 14 state parks and recreation areas are nestled in the shadows of historic forts and sprawled among the stunning Badlands. From primitive campsites to cabin rentals, evening programs in outdoor amphitheaters to guided interpretive trails, you’ll find quite joys and great adventures. North Dakota’s invigorating winter days, plentiful snowfall and varied terrain have made it a winter playground. Activities such as snowmobiling, downhill and cross-country skiing, ice fishing, sledding and skating are favorite pastimes. —Information and photos from the North Dakota Tourism Division

FARGO-MOORHEAD An All-American City

Less than ten thousand years ago, the area that is now Fargo-Moorhead was 200 feet below the surface of Lake Agassiz, a huge inland sea formed at the end of the last iceage. Over centuries the waters receded, leaving six feet of rich, black soil that today make the Red River Valley one of the world’s most fertile farmlands, with Fargo and Moorhead as its center. Located in the center of North America, the Red River Valley is a 30-40 mile wide strip of land that gently rises westward from the Red River running northward between North Dakota and Minnesota, extending into Canada. Rich, black soil produces an abundance of crops such as potatoes, sunflowers, sugar beets, wheat, corn, soybeans, alfalfa, oats, and lentils. Industry and agriculture are closely related in Fargo-Moorhead. With two meat-packaging plants, sugar and sunflower processing plants, creameries and a malting barley plant, the metro area processes most of its own products. When you visit Fargo-Moorhead, you will find yourself in one of the most warm-hearted communities in the entire nation. Our community is currently the largest shopping destination between Minneapolis, Minnesota, and Spokane, Washington. We are home to a vibrant economy, unique attractions and numerous dining establishments of every kind and flavor. The two cities are divided by the Red River of the North which also serves as the border between the states of North Dakota and Minnesota. The river itself is unique as it flows north to eventually drain into Lake Winnipeg. The city of Fargo was named for one of the owners of the Wells-Fargo Express Company, William G. Fargo. In 1885, the existence of many lawyers in Fargo and easy divorce laws prompted thousands of unhappy married people to apply for the “Ten-Minute Divorce.” Also in Fargo’s history is the Great Fire of 1893, started when Mrs. Rosa Herzman discarded ashes behind her grocery store. They were ignited, and fire spread from what is now Main Avenue to the north. By the end of the day, downtown Fargo was devastated. The city of Moorhead was named after William G. Moorhead, an executive of the Northern Pacific Railway. In fact, the Northern Pacific Railway had a profound impact on both the economy and population of the area. Originally settled by Scandinavian and European immigrants, Fargo and Moorhead became boomtowns with the arrival of the NP in 1871. When the Northern Pacific Railroad was selecting its crossing site over the Red River, eager land speculators spared no effort to learn of the location. Railroad officials marked a false route a few miles north of Moorhead, Minnesota to throw speculators off the trail. This area, now Oakport Township, was known for years as “Bogusville.” Under the Homestead Act, settlers were given 160 acres in exchange for living on the land and farming part of it for at least five years. Suddenly

Fargo-Moorhead became a mecca for hopeful refugees from the overcrowded east. The railroad brought a constant stream of settlers seeking a new life on America’s newest frontier. Today the population of the Fargo-Moorhead metropolitan area is more than 200,000, and there seems to be no end in sight to the persistent prosperity and growth. While agriculture is still prominent in the local economy, Fargo-Moorhead has also become an important focal point for other professions, including government, education, medicine, retailing and manufacturing. From dance to theater to music, Fargo-Moorhead is rich with cultural arts. The local attractions are mostly reflective of the roots of our original settlers. The Heritage Hjemkomst Interpretive Center and Bonanzaville, USA are two sites filled with pioneer spirit and old-time hospitality. The area park districts maintain more than 3,000 acres of parkland and recreational facilities. Fargo-Moorhead takes pride in its cultural park, Trollwood, as well as its all-year indoor skating and hockey arenas. Several swimming pools, numerous ball diamonds and winter-summer playgrounds and picnic grounds bring the great outdoors to all the people regardless of the weather. In addition to the popular NCAA Division I athletic events at North Dakota State University, Fargo-Moorhead is also home to the F-M RedHawks professional baseball team of the American Association, and the USHL’s Fargo Force hockey team. —Information from the Fargo-Moorhead Convention and Vistitors Bureau

NCAA COMPLIANCE

N

orth Dakota State University’s athletics program is rich in tradition. Its storied history includes national, regional, and conference championships and champions. On top of these athletic achievements are numerous academic championships earned by our student-athletes. As we strive to continue the championship tradition of Bison Athletics, we must always seek the highest of ethical conduct. North Dakota State University is unconditionally committed to NCAA rules and regulations. As an NCAA member institution, we must be responsible for ensuring that everyone abides by those rules. There is no margin for unethical behavior.

ARE YOU A REPRESENTATIVE OF NDSU’S ATHLETICS INTERESTS? You are a representative of NDSU’s athletics interests, more commonly known as a “booster”, if you meet any of the following conditions: — You have been or are a member of any organization that promotes NDSU’s athletics program (e.g., NDSU Foundation, Team Makers). — You have made a financial contribution to the NDSU athletics department or its booster organization. — You have ever assisted in the recruitment of prospects for NDSU. — You have provided benefits (e.g. summer jobs or occasional family meals) to enrolled student-athletes. — You have arranged for or provided employment for enrolled student-athletes, or assisted in providing any benefit to enrolled student-athletes or their families. — You have ever, in any way, promoted the athletics program at NDSU. NOTE: Please remember that once you become a booster, you retain that identity indefinitely.

WHO IS A PROSPECTIVE STUDENT-ATHLETE? A prospective student-athlete, commonly known as a “prospect,” is any individual who has started classes for the 9th grade. In addition, student-athletes enrolled in preparatory school or two-year colleges are considered prospects. Ultimately, a student remains a prospect until enrollment at a four-year collegiate institution. It is possible for a younger student-athlete to be a prospect so it is a good idea to treat all athletes as prospects until they enroll.

WHO CAN RECRUIT FOR NORTH DAKOTA STATE UNIVERSITY? Only North Dakota State University coaches who successfully complete the annual NCAA Coaches Certificate Exam, which tests their knowledge of NCAA recruitment legislation, are permitted to be involved in the recruiting process. As a booster, you are specifically prohibited from: — Making any recruiting contacts with prospects or their relatives. This includes telephone calls, letters, emails, and facsimiles, along with any face-to-face contact either on or off campus.

46

With your assistance and cooperation, we believe we can continue to represent the university with integrity, the highest of ethical standards, and the belief in doing what is right. Whether you are an alum, donor, booster, or friend of Bison Athletics, the university is grateful for your support. Together we can accomplish the common goal of ensuring a positive experience for all student-athletes. NDSU is subject to penalties for all violations committed by any alum, donor, booster or friend. Please contact the NDSU Compliance Office at (701) 231-5696 if you need a specific NCAA rule interpretation.

— Assisting NDSU coaches by picking up transcripts, films, or any other information pertaining to a prospect’s ability from the prospect’s educational institution. — Providing a benefit to high school, prep school or community college coaches.

NCAA RULES REGARDING THE INTERNET The internet is considered similar to email, telephone calls, or general correspondence. Therefore, it should not be used by boosters to contact prospects, their families, or their coaches. Participation in “chat rooms” with prospects is strictly prohibited.

NCAA RULES REGARDING BOOSTER INVOLVEMENT WITH PROSPECTS — You may not provide financial aid or benefit of any kind (e.g., clothing, special discounts, lodging, meals, transportation, tickets, loans of money) to prospects or their relatives. — You may not contact a prospective student-athlete to congratulate him/her on signing a National Letter of Intent to attend NDSU. — You may not provide transportation or arrange for payment of transportation costs for a prospect or his/ her relatives or friends to visit campus. — You may not earmark funds nor pay for specific prospects to attend an NDSU summer camp. — You may not employ or arrange for employment of a prospect before the completion of his/her senior year. After graduation, a booster may employ a prospect as long as compensation is for work actually performed and at a rate commensurate with experience and the going rate. — You may not provide anything to a prospect or the prospect’s family or friends without prior approval from the Compliance Office.

NCAA RULES REGARDING BOOSTER INVOLVEMENT WITH ENROLLED STUDENT-ATHLETES — You may not pay for or arrange for payment of room, board, or any type of transportation at any time for currently enrolled student-athletes, their relatives, or their friends. — You may not provide student-athletes with any sort of extra benefit, which refers to any special arrangement provided a student-athlete or his/her relatives or friends with the benefit unavailable to the general student population.

— You may not provide student-athletes with any special discounts, payment arrangements (e.g., cosigning a loan), credits on a purchase (e.g., airline ticket, clothing), or services (e.g., dry cleaning, transportation). — You may not allow student-athletes to use your telephone or make free calls. — You may not provide awards or gifts to studentathletes for any reason. This also prohibits honorariums for speaking engagements. All awards to student-athletes must meet all NCAA legislation and be approved by the Compliance Office. — You may not entertain student-athletes or their families and friends. You may not even buy them a cup of coffee or a can of soda. The only exception to this is that you may, on an occasional basis, provide a student-athlete or team (not family members or friends) with a meal. The meal can be catered, but it must be in your home. — You may not use the name or picture of a studentathlete to advertise a commercial product. — You may not purchase complimentary admissions from a current student-athlete. — You may not provide an honorarium to a studentathlete for speaking engagement. NOTE: These rules apply throughout the studentathlete’s entire enrollment at NDSU.

WHAT CAN YOU DO? — Forward information about prospects to the appropriate NDSU coaching staff member. n View a prospect’s athletics contest on your own initiative, provided you do not contact the prospect or his/her relatives, coach, principal, or counselor in an attempt to evaluate the academic or athletic abilities of the prospect. You are responsible for all incurred costs or fees at a contest. — Speak to a prospect on the telephone ONLY if the prospect initiates the call. You are not permitted to have a recruiting conversation, but you may exhibit normal civility. Under such circumstances, you must refer questions about the athletics program to the athletics department staff. — Employ a prospect or student-athlete, provided permission has been granted by the athletics department. The student-athlete will ask you to provide employment information to the athletics department prior to employment.
