Jake’s take on sports

Cardinals football season comes to and end


Posted on 10/17/15

We start this week by saying that the Langdon-Munich Cardinals football season has come to an end with their game at home versus Lakota-Edmore-Dakota Prairie on Oct. 16.  Actually it was the game for both teams this season, as each team was trying to finish their season with a win.  Park River-Fordville-Lankin, Larimore and Rugby were the teams that looked they were heading to the playoffs out of Region 2A.  For the Cardinals they will say goodbye to two seniors in linemen Jesse Lein and Ryan Wells, and also to Tristen Klingenberg, who we’re told is out of eligibility after this season.  Losing those three will put a few holes in the line for next year, but the Cards will return a good number of kids with a lot of varsity experience, and the coaching staff thinks they should make a big jump going into next season.  Hats off to Jesse, Ryan and Tristen for their dedication to the Cardinals program, as always it has been watching all of you play.  We also wish the best of luck to both North Border and Cavalier, who are entering the 9 Man Football Playoffs on Oct. 17.

Cross Country reaches the postseason

The fall Cross Country season has reached its postseason, as the Class B East Region Meet is scheduled to be held in Cooperstown, at their country club on Oct. 17.  The Langdon-Munich team has been led all season by Madison Gapp on the girls side, and Ben Lagein for the boys.  They are both returning All-Region runners, and both will be trying to get into the State Cross Country Meet, which will be held in Lincoln Park on Oct. 24.  We all our area runners the best of luck in these postseason meets.

Fall Meeting of the Langdon Country Club coming Oct. 20

The Langdon Country Club will have their end of the season fall meeting on Oct. 20.  Many different issues will be discussed, along with planning a few things for next season.  The meeting will start promptly at 6:30 p.m. in the clubhouse, and all club members are encouraged to attend.  End of the year things like shutting down the clubhouse for the year and blowing out water lines will also begin later next week.  However the course will remain open for golfers until freeze up, so hopefully their will be a week or two left for you to get out and swing the clubs a couple more times.  Again, everyone is encouraged to attend the fall meeting of the club next Tuesday evening.

“See ya!”  next week!
