New Rockford-Sheyenne earned 18 of the 19 first-place votes to top the Class 9-man poll this week by the N.D. AP Sportswriters and Sportscasters.

With one more day to go before the American League Division Series between the Minnesota Twins and N.Y. Yankees starts in New York, the injury news is upbeat for the Twins.
Max Kepler, Marwin Gonzalez and Ehire Adrianza all said they would be able to play in Friday’s Game 1.
Twins manager Rocco Baldelli also said he’s optimistic that Luis Arraez would be available during the series the as well. Kepler has missed much of September with a rhomboid strain, Gonzalez sat out the Twins’ series with Kansas City with an oblique injury and Adrianza has also missed time with the same injury.
Arraez is continuing to rehab an injured ankle suffered against the Royals.
The Twins have until 9 a.m. Friday to make a final decision on their ALDS roster.
Minnesota receiver Stefon Diggs missed Wednesday’s practice for the team in what was called a non-football related issue.
Through four games this season Diggs has 13 receptions for 209 yards and one touchdown. Last year through four games Diggs caught 27 balls for 311 yards and two TDs. The Vikings did not comment on Diggs’ status after Wednesday’s practice.
Minnesota plays at the N.Y. Giants at noon on Sunday.
