Grace is love. But love of a special sort…which is kind to the unkind and generous to the ungrateful and undeserving.

    MINOT, ND - Former Bishop Ryan standout Hannah Stewart has won the Dakota Award from the North Dakota Associated Press Sportscasters and Sportswriters Association. The Dakota Award is given to a North Dakota native who excels in sports outside of the state.

    The Association also handed out their post season awards in the Non-School Categories. The Minot State Men's Hockey Team won Non-School Team of the Year. Brady Schwab of the Thompson American Legion Baseball team won Non-School Coach of the Year. Shelby Frank of Grand Forks won the Non-School Athlete of the Year.

DAKOTA AWARD: Hannah Stewart, Minot

    Stewart was a part of a very successful University of Iowa women's basketball team. As a senior this winter, Stewart started all 36 games for a Hawkeyes team that won the Big 10 tournament. The team's season ended with a loss in the NCAA Elite Eight to eventual national champion Baylor.

    Stewart, a standout at Minot Bishop Ryan High School, was third on the Hawkeyes in scoring (11.1 ppg), second in rebounding (6.7 rpg), averaged 2.3 assists and shot 56 percent from the field. She was named to the Big 10 all-tournament team.

    Stewart recently signed a professional contract to play with a team in Australia.

    Other finalists: Britta Curl, Bismarck, Wisconsin women's hockey; Amy Olson, Oxbow, LPGA golfer.


NON-SCHOOL TEAM: Minot State University Men's Hockey

    The Beavers entered the ACHA Divsion 1 national tournament in March as the No. 6 seed. They ended up winning the program's second national title. The Beavers beat No. 3 seed and defending national champion Adrian College in the national quarterfinals, No. 1 seed Lindenwood University in the semifinals and No. 5 seed Iowa State 3-1 in the championship. That capped a season-closing 16-1 run for Minot State. The Beavers finished 34-8-1, after starting the year 6-6, then going 28-2-1 the rest of the way.

    Other finalists: Fargo Little League baseball, West Fargo American Legion baseball.


NON-SCHOOL COACH: Brady Schwab, Thompson American Legion baseball

    Schwab's Thompson team won its second consecutive Class B American Legion baseball championship last summer. His fundamentally-sound team dominated the opposition in all phases of the game in the postseason.

    Schwab's team went 9-0 in the region and state tournaments. Thompson outscored its opponents 91-15, out-hit its opponents 95-36 and committed just eight errors in the nine games.

    Thompson shut out four opponents in the postseason and only once allowed more than three runs in a game.

    Other finalist: Wade Regier, Minot State hockey.

NON-SCHOOL ATHLETE: Shelby Frank, Grand Forks

    Shelby Frank became just the fourth athlete in North Dakota high school track history this spring to win four consecutive Class A state girls discus titles. The Grand Forks Red River High School senior-to-be has dominated the sport not only in-state, but nationally.

    Last July, Frank won the discus title in the age 15-16 division for the second consecutive year at the USA Track and Field Junior Olympics in Greensboro, N.C. Frank had a winning throw of 157 feet, 8 inches to beat the field by more than 13 feet. Frank's throw would have been good for second place in the 17-18 age group, only a foot behind the winner. Frank also finished fifth in the shot put in her age group.

    Frank, who has thrown a personal-record 169-1 this summer, is tied with Grand Forks throwing legends Patti Purpur and Dani Parkos and Erika Schroeder of Bismarck Century as the only throwers to win the A discus title four straight seasons.

    Other finalists for the non-school athlete award are: Jake Faircloth, West Fargo American Legion baseball; Donny Schatz, racing.

    MINOT, ND - Luke Quick hit a sacrifice fly to bring in Jace Edwards as the Souris Valley Sabre Dogs defeat the Wheat City Whiskey Jacks 6-5 in 11 innings last night at Corbett Field. The teams meet again tonight at 7:05 pm in game two of the three-game series.



     MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Eddie Rosario had four hits, Willians Astudillo added three hits and the Minnesota Twins extended Blake Snell's troubles in a 9-4 win against the Tampa Bay Rays on Tuesday night.
     Jonathan Schoop and C.J. Cron hit solo homers for Minnesota, which got to Snell (4-7) for seven runs and 11 hits in just 3 1/3 innings.
     Kyle Gibson (8-4) allowed four runs and seven hits in seven innings as the Twins won for the third time in four games.
     Snell was coming off a disastrous six-run outing at the New York Yankees in which he only retired one batter. He started this one with a clean first inning, but Astudillo got Minnesota started with an RBI single in the second.
     The Twins scored three runs in each of the third and fourth innings to chase Snell, with Rosario tallying an RBI single in each.
     Snell has won once in his last nine starts. In five starts in June, the the reigning American League Cy Young winner has a 12.11 ERA and has given up six or more runs three times.
     Rays pitchers have allowed 101 runs in 209 2/3 innings in the month, raising their once majors-best ERA from 2.83 to 4.33.
     Willy Adames had two hits, including a solo homer for Tampa Bay, which has lost six of eight and is 10-14 since the start of June.
     Twins: OF Max Kepler left the game with a right elbow contusion after being hit in the arm by a pitch from Hunter Wood. ... INF Ehire Adrianza is nearing a return from abdominal issues, according to manager Rocco Baldelli. . OF Marwin Gonzalez is progressing from a right hamstring strain and ran at 75% before the game. ... Baldelli downplayed any concern over the blister developed by RHP Jose Berrios in his last start.
     UP NEXT
     Two of the AL's top pitchers in ERA match up tonight. Tampa Bay's Charlie Morton (8-1) leads the league in ERA at 2.31 and Jake Odorizzi (10-3) starts for Minnesota against his former team. Odorizzi is third in the AL - behind Texas' Mike Minor - with a 2.58 ERA. Odorizzi stumbled a bit in his past two starts, giving up eight runs in 10 innings in two games against Kansas City, but he threw six scoreless innings against Tampa Bay on June 2. Morton allowed two runs in seven innings in a win against the Twins on May 30.


     INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - Odyssey Sims scored 25 points, including two free throws with 29.1 seconds left, and the Minnesota Lynx held off the Indiana Fever 78-74 on Tuesday night despite blowing a 22-point lead.
     Minnesota was ahead 43-23 at halftime until Indiana scored 24 of the next 30 points to tie it at 60. Kelsey Mitchell sank a fade-away 3-pointer with 6:07 remaining in the fourth quarter for the Fever's first lead, 63-61, since a 5-4 advantage.
     But Indiana did not score again until the 1:58 mark as Minnesota had 10 straight points, capped by Damiris Dantas' 3-pointer, to rebuild its lead to 71-63. The Fever did not get closer than three points the rest of the way.
     Napheesa Collier added 16 points and Sylvia Fowles had nine points and 11 rebounds for Minnesota (6-5). Sims also had seven rebounds, seven assists and five steals.
     Mitchell scored 17 points and Erica Wheeler added 13 for Indiana (5-7), which would have set a team record for largest comeback with a victory.
     Indiana was coming off a three-game road swing, ending with travel woes returning home. Mechanical issues with a plane in Seattle forced Indiana to miss its connecting flight in Atlanta and after alternative travel options were exhausted, the 18-member traveling party embarked on an 8  1/2-hour bus trip from Georgia to Indiana. The Fever begin a three-game road swing on Friday at Phoenix.



     UNDATED (AP) - The New York Yankees have set a major league record by homering for the 28th consecutive game. They needed each of their home runs on Tuesday to beat the Toronto Blue Jays.

     DJ LeMahieu, Aaron Judge, Gleyber Torres and Edwin Encarnacion provided the longballs as the Yanks beat the Blue Jays, 4-3. LeMahieu led off the bottom of the first with a blast, allowing New York to break the consecutive games mark set by the 2002 Rangers. Judge went deep one batter later, Torres homered in the second and Encarnacion gave the Yankees a 4-2 cushion in the eighth.

     Rookie left-hander Nestor Cortes Jr. pitched 4 1/3 solid innings in relief of opener Chad Green to pick up the win.

     The AL East leaders have won nine of their last 10 and are 8-1 on a 10-game homestand that wraps up Wednesday.
