Last weekend, was the first big weekend of high school sports of the school year. Every Wednesday throughout the school year, we will look back at some of the top performers from the past weekend.


Cooper Olson, Mon-Dak Thunder

ESPN awards sticker helmets for the top performances from the day in college football each Saturday night. If it were possible to award them for high school performances, Mon-Dak’s Cooper Olson would be in the running for one.

Olson completed 22 of 34 passes for 360 yards and eight touchdowns in the Thunder’s 62-12 win.

Isaac Jacobs, Divide County

Jacobs rushed 13 times for 188 yards Friday night as the Maroons defeated Drake-Anamoose 50-6. The Divde County senior also completed two passes for 47 yards.

He scored on runs of 7 and 93 yards, while returning an interception 40 yards for a third touchdown.

Daniel Marmon and Brandon Allex, Watford City

The pair of Watford City running backs combined to rush for 171 yards on 22 carries in the Wolves’ 35-14 win over Bismarck Century JV team Saturday. Allex scored on runs of 16 and 37 yards, while Marmon added a 17-yard scoring run. Marmon also added a 80-yard touchdown reception.


Shelby Njos, Williston

The Williston outside hitter finished last weekend with 15 kills and 24 digs. She had 16 digs in Williston’s five-game win over Mandan on Friday.

Emily Lysne, Williston

The Williston senior posted 15 kills in the two home weekend matches. Lysne added five aces along with nine kills in the home win over Mandan.
