2021-22 ND Class A Boys Basketball Season Preview

Let the battle begin! I don’t know how it’ll all shake out in the end, but I feel like this season has a chance to be one of the most competitive years in Class A boys basketball in quite some time.

2021 ND High School Volleyball Season Preview

After the 2020 season brought us a double dose of perfection, I’m curious what 2021 has in store. Bismarck Century enters the year on a 22-match win streak after winning its fifth title in six years. Linton-HMB finished off a perfect season by sweeping Langdon-Edmore-Munich for the state championship last fall.

2021 ND Class 11AA Football Season Preview

From sixteen teams to ten. That’s the change taking place at the division featuring the biggest enrollments in North Dakota high school football. As if that change isn’t enough, there will be an imbalance in the class with six teams from the western side of the state and only four from the east.

Take a look at my preview that includes top teams and players in the 11AA division.

2021 ND Class 11A Football Season Preview

The new 11A class is another difficult one to predict because we’re about to see a lot of programs compete against one another for either the first time or the first time in a long time. Fargo North, Fargo South, Grand Forks Red River, Grand Forks Central and Dickinson have always competed in the same division as the biggest schools, but this year they’ll be in the second tier for the Class A schools. It’s a change that’ll take a lot of getting used to, but ultimately, I’m looking forward to seeing how it plays out. Read on to find out who I think will be the top competition in 11A this fall.
