During the past 20 years, Kellie Elliott has spent time in numerous roles in the athletics world across the country. She's been at Yale, San Jose State, Florida State, Stanford, Cal, as a consultant and currently is the deputy athletic director at Texas-San Antonio. Elliott says all of those experiences have prepared her to be the next athletic director at UND. Elliott addressed a crowd of people at an open forum at the Gorecki Alumni Center on Tuesday afternoon. She was the third person to interview for the job.
The highest ticket prices in UND athletics history didn't at all slow down the mad dash of fans trying to find their way into the North Dakota-Minnesota hockey series next month. The rivalry series, being played in Ralph Engelstad Arena for the first time in six seasons, instantly sold out this week, despite record ticket prices of $99 for both adult and youth tickets.
A 19-year-old Arvilla, N.D., man was found guilty of aggravated reckless driving Wednesday in the crash that severely injured UND women's hockey player Lisa Marvin. Tristen Johnson was read the verdict from a six-person jury Wednesday afternoon in District Court in Grand Forks. Johnson will be sentenced on March 23. Aggravated reckless driving is a Class A misdemeanor in North Dakota, punishable by up to a year's imprisonment and/or a $3,000 fine. The accident occurred Nov. 17, when Marvin's pickup ran out of gas on Gateway Drive in Grand Forks.
