UPDATE: UND Narrows Nickname List to Seven

The list of 15 potential nicknames for UND is being cut down, again.

The UND Nickname Committee met to have a name-by-name discussion about the finalists and cut a few names.

Those still being considered include: Green Hawks, Fighting Hawks, Nodaks, North Dakota, North Stars, Roughriders and Sundogs.

Blaze and Spirit were cut just before nine o’clock.

A score sheet is helping determine if each nickname is unique, promotes a sense of pride and is a unifying symbol for the school.
