Jake’s take on sports

The Big Warm Up is coming


Posted on 4/9/16

By Jake Kulland

It’s been an interesting start to spring, but our chilly, icky, snowy days should be coming to an end this week.  Temps are going to ramp up in the 50s and hopefully 60s by the middle of the week ahead.  That comes at a perfect time, as our area spring sports are ready to roll outdoors.  For area schools this is one of the busiest times of the year, as track, baseball and golf all will be heading in different directions shortly.  Let’s hope the great weather that is coming won’t be another teaser and will stay here for good.  And of course that should mean spring planting won’t be far behind.

Langdon-Munich home opener “scheduled” for April 11

Before we get to that warmup we will have a couple of more cold, damp days to get through.  The Langdon-Munich high school baseball team already had one game cancelled at Lakota-Edmore on April 7, and their opener is in doubt as well.  The Cards are scheduled to play Grafton at American Legion Field at 4:30 p.m. on April 11, but at the time of this typing the forecast is for just 31 degrees for a high temperature that day, so we will see if that game happens.  The Cardinals will play at Midway-Minto on April 14, then there next home game is April 18 versus Park River-Fordville-Lankin.  Keep it tuned to KNDK 1080 for any schedule changes or weather related sports announcements.

Langdon-Munich Sports Boosters to celebrate their first anniversary

Hard to believe that the Langdon-Munich Sports Boosters have already been around for a year, but it is true and they have a fun night planned.  April 15 they will have a get together at the Langdon Eagles Club.  This is open to anyone, especially families to come in on the Eagles Burger Night from 5-8 p.m.  All proceeds from the meals that night will be graciously donated by the Eagles to the Sports Boosters, and the boosters will have some raffles and several giveaways throughout the evening.  Again everyone is welcome no matter what the age to celebrate the first year of what’s been a very helpful organization to all Langdon-Munich school sports, in all seasons.  The Sports Boosters would like to thank Eagles Aerie 3454 for their generous donation and for hosting the event.

Langdon Country Club gearing up to open for the season

The weather has hindered the opening of the Langdon Country Club for the 2016 season.  That should be changing as week progresses, with very nice temps forecast.  Again the Spring Meeting of the club will be held April 19 at 7:30 p.m. in the clubhouse, which will also be the first Stage Night.  And sign up now is ongoing for the 3:30 p.m. or 6:00 p.m. shifts of Tuesday Men’s League.  Just contact Randy Hill, league secretary to get your 2-Man team in for the year.  They are looking forward to another big season at the club, and you can hear the Langdon Country Club report every Friday throughout the golf season with myself and club president Cody Pengilly at 1:50 p.m. on KNDK 1080.

Summer Baseball sign up is coming

We will leave you this week by saying the Sign Up Night for all summer baseball and softball programs will be April 20 from 5-7 p.m. at the Langdon American Legion Hall, located right across from the Langdon Motor Inn.  This is for summer T-Ball, Pee Wee, Little League, Babe Ruth and American Legion Baseball, plus Girls Softball.  Make sure you save the date, as this the night they need to know how many numbers to expect for the teams this year.

“See ya!” next week!
