Jake’s take on sports

I finally made the front page

We have to start this week by thanking everyone at the Republican for the front page story about me winning North Dakota Sportscaster of the Year. I’m not one who likes to blow his own horn believe it not, but I’m still very appreciative of the story they did. This column usually gets pushed back in page eight or nine (just teasing), so I guess we finally made the back time in the Republican. All kidding aside, thanks again to everyone for the kind words and thanks to everyone for their great help over the years.

The 100

That’s actually the name of a semi popular TV show, but it’s now also the highest point total that a Langdon or Munich girls basketball team has ever scored in a game. It happened when the Lady Cards beat Dunseith 100-45 in a game in Munich on Jan. 26. At least we think it’s the most points they have scored in a game. Dennis “Scoop” Throndset is researching this feat and will give in the information next week. And for those who maybe thought the Lady Cards were running up the score, all 11 players scored on the roster, with every girls getting at least one basket. And Dunseith kept their pressure on for the entire game, which led to some very easy late baskets. We will let you know if 100 points have ever been scored in a game next week.

The winter sports postseason begins this week

We will leave you by saying February brings the postseason to many winter sports, starting with wrestling. Pembina County North will participate in the Region 2 Dual Tournament in Central Cass Feb. 6, followed by the Region 2 Individual Tournament in Carrington Feb. 13. Also the District 8 Girls Basketball Tournament will be held in Rolla Feb. 12-15. It’s Tournament Time folks, get out and enjoy it!

“See ya!” next week!
