GRAND FORKS, N.D. (AP) - The University of North Dakota is unveiling its Fighting Hawks gear.

The breakout comes about two months after the school approved the logo that depicts a white hawk head with black shading and a black eye, atop the angular letters “ND” in green.

UND retired its Fighting Sioux nickname in 2012. The Fighting Hawks moniker was selected in a vote of alumni, students and staff. It beat out Roughriders, Nodaks, Sundogs and North Stars, and has been in use since late last year.

The merchandise will go on sale at the UND bookstore beginning at 9 a.m. Saturday. It is the first time that the gear will be available.
