Let’s start this time around by letting you know that an all new organization call the Langdon-Munich Sports Boosters is being put together.  Lane Christianson is spearheading the group, which has not been around for at least 15 years.  Their first organizational meeting will be held Monday, March 30 at 7:00 p.m. in the meeting room of the Langdon Eagles Club.  They are looking for people to show up for the meeting who are interested in promoting and helping all Langdon school sports programs.  This means football, cross country, volleyball, basketball, track, golf and baseball for all ages.  It’s basically everything except hockey and summer baseball and softball, which are privately funded. So if you have a boy or girl that is already or will be participating in Langdon-Munich sports, we very much encourage you to come to this meeting.  It’s not just a fundraising club, but it will also be a group that will put on team and individual camps and other sorts of things all for the benefit and betterment of Cardinals sports.  For more information, you can call Christianson at 256-3205.

Spring sports slowly getting going

This past week saw weather that has not been very conducive to outdoor activities.  A couple touches of snow has slowed things down dramatically.  We put out the hopeful thoughts the course at the Langdon Country Club may be opening soon, but the past week has most likely put that on hold for awhile.  The Cardinals along with many area track teams will be competing in the State Indoor Track Meet in Fargo March 28, and then the Pembina County Indoor in Grand Forks March 30.  Outdoor meets don’t look they will starting until after Easter or perhaps the middle of April.  We still have not received a golf schedule at press time, but should have something for you next week.  And the first game for the Cardinals high school baseball team is set for April 9 at Lakota-Edmore.

Area girls make the Class B All-State team

Speaking of Lakota-Edmore, we need to give a shout out this week to Lady Raiders senior Fallyn Freije, who was named to the first team of the 2015 North Dakota Class B All-State Girls Basketball team.  Fallyn was named to the first team for the fourth straight year, which is incredible.  She finished her career with 2,511 points scored, and of course will be moving on to play college basketball at UND.  Two other area girls also made the second team, seniors Alli Vandal from Rolla and Helen Schuster from Midway-Minto.  Vandal scored 1,811 points in her fine career and will be playing college ball at Valley City State.  Congratulations to all three girls for representing our are extremely well, and we wish them the best of luck in the future.

Highway 5 Pool League end of the year tourney is March 29

For those who get this paper on Saturdays, we will let you know one more time that the end of the season Highway 5 Pool League Tournament is March 29, At the Hop Bar & Grill in Langdon. Registration will begin at noon, with the tournament beginning at 1 p.m.  This tourney is open to all league members.  We thought we would be able to give you a list of league team and individual winners, but they were still compiling the stats as we write these words.  We hope to have that for you next time around.

“See ya!” next week!
