Jake’s take on sports

Seeding, and seeding… and seeding


Posted on 6/6/15

Let’s start this week by saying that this has been one long seeding season in Cavalier County.  Some folks are have seeded their land three times (3!), due to killer frosts and freezes.  It’s been a springs work season to forget, but hopefully we are finally out of the woods with nice warm temperatures expected for the next week or so.  We hope that everyone who got things seeded late has everything turn out right, and that we have a late fall weather wise.

Langdon Post 98 Red Sox ready to start their season

The warmer temps come at a perfect time for the start of the American Legion Baseball season.  The Langdon Post 98 Red Sox have very good numbers this year, and they look to build on a great 2014, when they earned a state tournament bid and got to play it in their home park.  There are still so many great memories of the 2014 State B Legion Tournament in Langdon, and hopefully more are on the way for this season. Pitching as always will be a key for Red Sox success, as they lost top pitchers Kalton Agnes (who played Legion baseball for a remarkable six years starting when he was in junior high) and Kade Pengilly from last years club.  Kade has moved on to coach a very talented Langdon Babe Ruth team.  Langdon will have a lot of veteran players on this year’s team, including seniors Dalton Fetsch, Cameron Phillips, Lucas Mikkelsen, Jon Skjerveim, Robb Kuchar, Tayler Belle and Tyler Klein.  Coaching the Red Sox will be Jay Adam, who last coached the team 22 years ago, and he will be assisted by Cole Solseng, who is new to the area and originally from Park River.  The Northeast Region that Langdon will be playing in has expanded this year, with seven other teams in the region from Thompson, Midway-Minto, Harvey, Larimore, Cando, Nelson County and Park River.  It will be a very competitive region, but the Red Sox hope they will be right in the thick of things come postseason time.  Their first game is June 8 at home versus Midway-Minto, and you can find their complete schedule in this weeks paper.

Tournament time comes to Langdon Country Club

June 13 marks the first tournament of the season at the Langdon Country Club.  The annual Cavalier County Memorial Hospital Foundation Charity Golf Tournament will be held June 13, with a shotgun start at 11am.  It is two-person scramble format, and at last report they had room for four more teams, so if you would like to participate, contact Mary Shanker at the Foundation office inside the hospital.  Also the Langdon School District Foundation Tournament is once again coming up on June 27.  This is a four person tourney, and contact Chalmer Dettler to get signed up for that tourney at 256-5431.  One more golf note, the Wednesday Night Womens League will get started this Wednesday, June 10.  It’s not too late to sign up for that, just talk to Jenny Romfo to put in your two-woman team.

“See ya!”  next week!
