Jake’s take on sports

Spring sports heating up


Posted on 4/16/16

By Jake Kulland

As we write this week, we have finally warmed up enough to get spring sports rolling big time all across the area.  It is a very chaotic time of year, with track, baseball and golf teams heading to many events.  The spring season is very short compared to fall and winter, so the window to get games and meets in gets smaller by the day.  Hopefully the weather will cooperate and everyone can get close to a full season completed.  We have lots to tell you about this week, so let’s get to it.

Langdon ready to host several home track meets

The outdoor track season has started, and Langdon is scheduled to host three meets this year.  The first one is coming on April 19, with the others being May 5 and May 16.  The first two are both varsity and JV meets, while the last one is a varsity only Last Chance Meet.  Langdon-Munich coaches Denny Dinius and Jane Hart wanted us to say that they are looking for volunteers needed for a variety of things to help out with the meets.  If you can lend a hand, please contact either coach or just call the Langdon Area High School at 256-5291.  It is great to see the very nice track facility in Langdon being used a lot, and to do it right they need everyone to come together to make each event the best it can be.

Langdon Country Club set to open for the season

The Langdon Country Club will hold their spring meeting at the clubhouse at 7:30 p.m. on April 19.  All members are welcome, and this will also be the first Tuesday Mens Stag of the season.  There are a few slight changes at the club this year, as Ethen Askvig is taking over as bar and pro shop manager, a position that Sporty’s Bar did last year.  Theresa Stewart will again be running the kitchen on Tuesday and Wednesday nights, and she will also cater for special events at the club. For more information on anything with the club or the course, just call 256-5938.  Also signup is continuing for Tuesday Men’s League, contact Randy Hill to sign up a 2-Man team for either the 3:30 p.m. or 6:00 p.m. shift, or both.  And remember you can keep up with the very latest Langdon County Club news with the club report featuring club president Cody Pengilly and myself every Friday at 1:50 p.m. on KNDK AM 1080.

Summer baseball signup is happening April 20

The Langdon Area Park Board Baseball Committee will hold their annual signup night for all summer baseball and softball programs on April 20.  It will run from 5-7 p.m. at the Langdon American Legion Hall.  This is for Langdon T-Ball, Pee Wee, Little League, Babe Ruth and American Legion baseball, plus girls softball.  Please try and make it on this night, as we need to figure out the numbers and how many teams will have in the different divisions and age groups.

Cardinals home baseball opener April 18

The Langdon-Munich Cardinals high school baseball team will have their first home baseball game of the year on April 18.  They will play at American Legion Field against Park River-Fordville-Lankin on that day.  As of now the forecast looks great for that date, so hopefully everyone can get out and enjoy some hardball and see what the Cardinals have for a squad this year.  The first pitch time is at 4:30 p.m.

“See ya!” next week!
