Have you heard the story of Marty Connelly, Bemidji boys basketball, Thief River Falls, and the 1933 Region 8 championship? Thanks to research and writing from the Bemidji Pioneer’s Micah Friez, this long-buried tale has returned to the modern consciousness.

Friez joined High Noon to share how the story was brought to his attention, while also discussing the NHL’s new Seattle Kraken and hopes for the return of high school sports.
