Former Major Leaguer Travis Hafner and Olympic silver medalists Monique and Jocelyne Lamoureux are among the 2016 inductees into the North Dakota Sports Hall of Fame.
Former Dickinson State University football coach Hank Bieslot will also be inducted at the North Dakota Sports Hall of Fame banquet being held on June 11th in Jamestown, according to Valley News Live.
