Jake’s take on sports

Spring sports winding down with a whirlwind week

Posted on 5/10/14

Let’s begin this week by attempting to inform you about several local sporting events coming in the week ahead.  The Langdon-Munich high school baseball team has a very busy week upcoming.  They will try to get in four league games in the three days, playing at St. Thomas at 4:30pm May 12, at home versus Pembina County North (a new co-op between Cavalier and North Border) for a league doubleheader May 13 at 4:30, then a makeup game at Park River-Fordville-Lankin May 14 in PR at 2:00pm.  The Cardinals will play compete in the Region 4 High School Baseball Tournament starting May 16, with the site yet to be determined. Meanwhile the Langdon track team will have a last chance meet on Monday, then will go to the Region 2 Meet in Larimore May 17, while the State Track Meet to follow the next week in Bismarck.  And high school golf has their regional meets this week, with the girls in Larimore May 12, and the boys in Park River May 13.  Talk about a week of controlled chaos.  And as Langdon athletic director Rich Rogers told us, if all these events get in without any weather problems it would be the first week that has happened all year.  Wow.

Girls golfers win qualifying meet — by a lot

We need to give another well deserved shout out the Langdon girls golf team once again this week.  At a region qualifying meet in Cando May 5, the Cards took first place — by 54 shots!!  That is just stunning.  Brynn Fischer led the way for the Cards taking third and shooting a 89, followed by Krystal Ratzlaff with a 95, Jayden Romfo 96, Shea Ormiston 99 and Andria Hart 107.  Congratulations to all these girls and best of luck to them in the postseason which starts this week.

Country Club board to remain the same

At the spring meeting of the Langdon Country Club May 6, Jeff Fisk agreed to stay on as club president for another year, and the rest of the board will stay the same with Chalmer Dettler, Jeff Howatt, Anthony Roy, Kyle Rollness, Cody Pengilly and Delores Johnson fill out the board, with Pengilly filling the role as vice president.  It’s a good group and they all want the best for the course and it’s members.
