Seattle is finally getting a professional hockey team next season in the @SeattleKraken. As the @NHL looks to introduce a new franchise, some restructuring is in order to balance the league and add some extra drama.

 

.@NAUWomensSoccer took on .@UNC_BearsSoccer Saturday in a battle of two teams who came into the match undefeated in Big Sky play. It lived up to the hype as the Bears rallied from a 2-0 deficit to force a 2-2 draw against NAU, with a rematch Monday.

This season, @NAUBasketball suffered two COVID-19 delays and lacked an offseason. However, this team still picked up the school’s first win in the Big Sky Tournament since 2015. There'd be much to be optimistic about with NAU hoops moving forward.

 

.@NAUWomensSoccer’s first half was enough to see them past @IdahoStateSoccr on Sunday. @tarynbenham set a new school record with the 22nd shutout of her career.

After falling behind early, @NAU_Football came back to take the lead in the fourth quarter against @weberstatefb. Unfortunately, a 50-yard Hail Mary touchdown with two seconds left was their downfall.

.@NAUSwimDive won their eighth conference championship in a row … eight! This feat didn’t come easy. Despite COVID-19 sweeping through, the team remained focused on their goals.

 

With @drewbrees retiring at the end of the 2020 season, discussion has swirled around him and his status among the top quarterbacks in NFL history. By looking at his play, stats and overall accomplishments, Brees is easily a top-five all-time quarterback.

 

.@NAUWomensSoccer cleaned up the Southern Utah Thunderbirds on Sunday. The match was completely run by the Lumberjacks by keeping possession and scoring efficiently as they took the win.

#Springtraining may be a little different this season, but that hasn't stopped the joy or the love of the game for fans. New protocol and new hubs for teams have allowed for this fan favorite tradition to continue.

 

The 2021 NFL Draft is fast approaching. The pool of names is full of high-profile quarterbacks in prospects Trevor Lawrence and Justin Fields, among others. However, a North Dakota State passer is just as deserving of attention.

It’s hard to believe that Covid-19 touched down on the world of sports exactly one year ago. Let’s reminisce on how the sports world was brought to its knees a year ago.
