WILLMAR -- Ridgewater College women's basketball coach Carrie Ogdahl said she is hopeful she'll be able to attend the NJCAA Division III Tournament in Utica, N.Y., next week after giving birth to her third child, a boy, at 6 p.m. Thursday at Rice Memorial Hospital.
Landon weighed seven pounds, five ounces, and was 19½ inches long, his mother said.
The Lady Warriors leave Monday by bus for the national tournament. Ogdahl said she and her husband, Darrin, would fly out Wednesday if she and the baby feel up to it.
The Lady Warriors made their last national appearance in 2001 (also in New York) when the head coach was five months pregnant with her second child, Dalton.
Retired Warriors' baseball and basketball coach Mike Johnson, Carrie's father, will accompany the team to New York and act as head coach if his daughter is unable to make the trip.
Assistant coach Jennie Revier will also be with the team.
The NJCAA Division III tournament runs Thursday through Saturday.
