Jake’s take on sports

Feeling hot, hot, hot


Posted on 5/7/16

As we begin this time around the temperature outside is 90 degrees… That’s right, 90, on May 5.  It’s been a wild ride of a spring, with one day you turn on the air conditioner, and the next day the furnace.  That’s North Dakota weather for ya, you just never know.  We have had a very nice stretch of days for everyone to get the crop in though.  And the forecast for the weekend doesn’t look too bad either.  Should be good times for getting many spring sports events in, along with the spring seeding season.

Tuesday Men’s League Golf beginning to fill up

Randy Hill, Secretary of the Tuesday Mens Golf League at the Langdon Country Club, tells us that both shifts for the league are getting close to filling up.  Currently the early 3:30 p.m. shift has 28 teams signed up, and the late 6:00 p.m. shift has 33.  It’s not too late to sign up your 2-Man team, just get in touch with Randy and he will put you in.   He also said they are putting in a deadline of May 16 to get involved with either shift, so we encourage you to contact Randy today.  The league will officially get started on May 24.  Randy’s phone number is 256-3267, and please leave a message is there is no answer.

Spring activities moving right along

As we said earlier, spring sports are hustling by at a pretty good clip.  The Langdon-Munich Cardinals high school baseball team will have their last regular season home game of the year on May 12 against Pembina County North.  At the time of this writing the Cards were right in the mix for one of the top two spots in the league with a conference record of 4-2.  Meanwhile both the Cardinals track and golf teams have been competing very well, with the Cards tracksters qualifying a number of athletes for the state track meet recently.  You can find results for both track and golf in the Republican throughout both teams seasons.  Next week we will talk up postseason tournaments, which are coming up fast.

Langdon Area Baseball still looking for more kids to sign up

As we say goodbye this week, we need to say that the Langdon Area Baseball boosters are still inviting kids of all ages to get signed up for the summer season.  T-Ball, Pee Wee, Little League, Babe Ruth and American Legion Baseball, and of course Girls Softball. Registration forms are available at any Cavalier County school and at Langdon City Hall.  And please get your child signed up this week if possible.  Also there is still an opening for American Legion Baseball coach for this summer.  Get in touch with any of the board members including myself, Randy Hill, Jay Adam, Marty Tetrault, Daryl Kempel, Tyler Feist, Ethen Askvig, Holly Lyons, Tom Beauchamp or Jacy Borgen for more information.

“See ya!”  next week!
