Baseball

Baseball has been a sport at North since the 1896-1897 school year.  The Minnestoa State High School League has sponsored a state championship tournament since the 1946-1947 school year.

North has won the conference title 10 times, the first being in 1924-1925 school year.  It seemed that North was building a dynasty, capturing the crown in 1925-1926, 1926-1927, 1927-1928, and 1928-1929 school years.  North took a little time away from the title, but regained its glory in the early 1940’s, capturing consecutive crowns in 1939-1940, 1940-1941, 1941-1942, and 1942-1943.  The Polars next and last conference championship was in the 1957-1958 school year. In the 1950’s, 1960’2 and early 1970’s, the conference was divided into two divisions, a North division and South division.  North captured the North division title in 1951-1952 and 1960-1961, but lost the playoff against the South division champion to claim the Conference Crown.  North has never played in a state tournament.

Recently, with the growth of AAU basketball, many North athletes have shied away from Spring sports in order to focus on basketball.  Because of this, North spent many years in last place winning only 4 games since 2000-2001 season.
