Decision season is underway. So far, so good for UND.
Jordan Schmaltz and Zane Gothberg are among the players who have decided that they are returning to UND for their junior seasons, which means the strength of next year’s team will be from the blue line back.
Schmaltz will get the unique opportunity to play with his brother, Nick, who will be a freshman on next year’s team.
Schmaltz’s father, Mike, also had that opportunity at UND. He played football alongside his brother, Marc.
Gothberg had a terrific end to his sophomore season, going 18-5-1 with a .933 save percentage and a 1.72 goals-against average.
Michael Parks also confirmed that he will be back for his senior season. It appears that Rocco Grimaldi is the last remaining player to make a decision.
