Jake’s take on sports

Postseason spring sports continue


Posted on 5/21/16

By Jake Kulland

As we wind down the school year this week, high school spring sports are rolling to a conclusion as well.  The Region 4 High School Baseball Tournament will run in both Grafton and Park River on May 23-25.  The Langdon-Munich Cardinals are the third seed in the tourney, and they will play sixth seeded Midway-Minto at 3:30pm in Park River on May 23.  If they win that game, they will play second seeded Park River-Fordville-Lankin the same day at around 5:30pm.  The tournament is played two sites the first day, then at Grafton the last two.  The winner of the tournament advances to the State B High School Baseball Tournament at Newman Outdoor Field (Redhawks Stadium) in Fargo June 2-4.  Also this week is the State A & B Track Meet, which will again be held at the Community Bowl in Bismarck May 27-28.  Langdon-Munich has several athletes that have qualified for state, and we wish them well in the Capital City.  And last but not least the State Class B Girls and Boys Golf Tournaments will be held May 31-June 1.  The girls tourney is in Carrington, with the boys at Jamestown.  Both the Cardinals girls and boys teams have a great chance to do well at state.

Langdon Legion, Babe Ruth coaches named

The Langdon Park Board Baseball Committee met recently and named the coaches for American Legion and Babe Ruth Baseball for the summer.  Jay Adam has accepted the coaching position for the Post 98 Red Sox.  This will be Jay’s eighth year coaching the team, including last year and stints in the 80s and 90s.  Kade Pengilly will helm the Babe Ruth team, for his second straight season.  Both teams have a lot of talent this year and should be a lot of fun to watch.  The Red Sox will have their first game of the season at home against Park River at 6:00pm on June 6.  We will print a complete Legion schedule next week.

Tuesday League Golf to begin

We will leave you with a reminder that Tuesday League Golf will officially get started May 24 at the Langdon Country Club.  There are close to 30 teams in the early 3:30 p.m. shift, and around 40 in the 6:00 p.m. shift.  If you would like to be a sub for the league, you can sign up and get on a list at the clubhouse.  Wednesday Night Women’s league is scheduled to begin with a fun night to get things going on June 1.  Jenny Romfo is once again running that league this year.

“See ya!’ next week!
