Special Achievement Awards

Posted: Updated:

The North Dakota Sportscasters & Sportswriters Association begins awards week with its biggest honor, the Special Achievement Award.

Golfer Amy Anderson set a new Division I career victories record passing Julie Inkste, the Century girls won a ton of state titles and Ed Kringstad, the former Bismarck State wrestling coach and athletic director, recently passed away.

"I think the work ethic part of it is what we take away from Ed. We're a small department so you pitch in, not everybody has just one job you do the whole job combined and Ed was a mentor to both of us," says Dee Bertsch.

What a year the Century girls had. The Patriots won state championships in basketball, volleyball, track and soccer. Plus, the Blizzard won the state hockey title.

"We have a lot of girls who are multi-sport kids, and we have a lot of girls who have put a lot of time and effort in the off-season to make themselves a lot better in their sport. And we have girls who are very competitive and want to do well for their school and their team," says Nick Walker, Century track and basketball.

Tomorrow, the Non-School and Dakota Awards will be announced.
