Jake’s take on sports

Getting rolling into fall sports


Posted on 8/13/16

Well, we are back in the saddle after a week off in Williston.  And we jump headfirst into fall sports, some of which get underway this week. Nine Man Football starts its season this coming Friday, August 19. North Border will host St. John in Walhalla (A game that you can hear on KNDK 1080), and Cavalier heads to Crosby to play Divide County on the same night.  We say the same thing every year, but it’s crazy that the season is starting already, but here we go.  Also the first Cross Country meet of the year is set for Aug. 20 in Jamestown.  The Langdon boys and girls teams, under the direction of Langdon Elementary principal Todd Hetler, plan on participating in that event.  Langdon-Munich does not have their first football game until Aug. 26, when they host Belcourt.

Volleyball practice starts up Aug. 15

The last shoe to drop fall practice wise is Girls Volleyball, which will begin on Aug. 15.  The Langdon-Edmore-Munich Cardinals (Note the new name!) will have their first practice that day with girls in grades 9-12 going from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m., and the junior high starting at 1:00 p.m.  As we said last week, Rich Olson, Tami Flink and Britney Feil are coaching the high school program, and Jane Hart and Alli Podhadsky will run the junior high squad.  The Lady Cards first action of the year will be at the Northern Cass tourney Aug. 27, with their first regular season match Sept. 1 at Thompson.  Their first home match is versus Cavalier on Sept. 6.  They also will play one home match in Edmore this season, against Dakota Prairie on Oct. 11.  The Cardinals will look to defend their Region 4 title, as they finished second in the state last year.

Langdon Country Club leagues come to and end

The Langdon Country Club will slow down a little, but will still continue to have some events happening.  Tuesday Night Men’s League has come to and end, but Tuesday Men’s Stag Nights will continue well into October.  Anyone can come out now and golf Tuesday’s with a different game featured each week.  This Tuesday it’s a 2-Man Scramble.  Meanwhile the Wednesday Night Women’s League has also ended, but they will have their annual Fun Night this Wednesday, with a potluck supper after golf in the clubhouse.  The board wants us to thank everyone that played in both leagues this year, and we should be able to tell you who made the Men’s League playoffs next time we visit.

“See ya!” next week!
