News, notes and comments from Herald reporter Brad Elliott Schlossman.
In what has become a fall tradition the last three years, Chris Porter won UND's Ironman competition again.
UND coaches have to be pleased Porter once again showed up to camp in very good condition. He will need to be a key part of the team's offense this season.
A freshman, Hunter Bishop, took second, which is pretty impressive. People in the Vernon Vipers organization (Bishop's previous team) said that he was an incredibly hard worker and will do whatever it takes to reach his ultimate goal (make the NHL). I'm guessing that work ethic is a major reason UND decided to bring him in this fall, even though he didn't have a monster year in the BCHL.
