Jake’s take on sports

Time to turn the page once again

As we come to you this week, we are going through serious withdrawl symptoms as another winter sports season has come to an end. Congratulations to the Lakota-Edmore girls basketball team on their fifth place finish at the State B Tournament in Fargo. And congrats to Fallyn Freije of the Lady Raiders for making the all-tournament team. That tournament put to another long but fun year of winter activities. It’s always crazy how we go from broadcasting five games a week and then everything comes to screeching halt. When you get into a routine of being on the road night after night, then there’s nothing, believe it or not we miss it badly for the next week or so. It’s kind of being released from prison, and now we have to adjust living in the real world. Not saying we hate our job, we love doing what we do without question, it’s just always the strangest feeling, when all of the hustle and bustle comes to and end. I’m sure we will cope with it somehow.

Spring sports waiting to get outside

All three spring sports have now gotten underway with indoor practices, as track, baseball and golf are just waiting for things to warm up. It’s appears that wait will be a little longer, as the long range forecast calls for still unspring like temperatures until at least the first weekend of April. This weekend marks the State Indoor Track Meet in Fargo that the Langdon Area team will participate in March 29, along with some upcoming meets in Grand Forks in April. Hopefully the season will not be the same as last year, when it was wickedly short.

Two Langdon athletes sign with Mayville State

We need to throw a shout out to two Langdon-Munich football players for signing on to play college football at Mayville State University. Austin Messner and Kade Pengilly have both committted to play football for Mayville State University. They are two of 37 players that signed from across the Midwest. Austin is listed as a defensive lineman, while Pengilly is slotted in at tight end. Also Jesse Schurman from North Border also is going to play on the Mayville gridiron, as he is listed as a defensive back. Best of luck to all three on what we hope will be successful college football careers.

Highway 5 Pool League to have end of the year bash

The Highway 5 Pool League completed their season March 27, and now the annual tournament and get together is set for April 6 at the Langdon Eagles Club. Registration is at noon, with the tourney to begin at one. There were over 160 players in the league this year, and all are welcome to play. Refreshments and great food will also be part of the day.

“See ya!” next week!
