Jake’s take on sports

Here comes spring, well sort of

As we visit with you all this week, we have been at a remarkable 40 below windchill on Jan. 12.  School has been called off for that day, and so have activities.  One that we can mention is that the Cavalier at Langdon-Edmore-Munich boys basketball game was postponed and now moved to Feb. 17 in Langdon.  Also girls basketball North Border at Larimore was moved to Jan. 27.  Now hopefully the weather will turn around for us, and it looks like it will be a couple of days anyway.  Some forecasts are actually for rain late this week and into the weekend.  That would be pretty bizarre for January in the Tundra, but it has been a bizarre winter to say the least.  We will look forward to some “Wintertan” weather that’s for sure.

Langdon Student Council selling Cardinals gear and trying to rev up school spirit

The Langdon Student Council group has started a fundraising effort for all Cardinals home basketball games in January.  They will have a booth at each game and will be selling Cards T-Shirts, Sweatshirts and Beanies.  All proceeds go to support several upcoming Student Council events.  They are planning different themes for each Cardinals home game.  And their are two in the week ahead — A “Red Out” is planning for the boys game Jan. 17 against Dunseith (Meaning wear something red), and western clothing is the theme for the Lady Cards game with Cavalier the afternoon of Jan. 21.  We will have information on themes for upcoming games later in the month next week.

Tournament time for the Langdon Blades teams

The Langdon junior gold hockey team is at the point of their schedule when they are traveling to some invitational tournaments.  The Blades will play in Morden, MB for three games Jan. 12-14, then head to Grand Forks to a big tourney Jan. 20-22.  Also the Blades bantam team will host a jamboree on Jan. 21, with Northwood and Hazen (Yes, that Hazen) coming up to play round robin style.  It’s always great to see any kind of tournaments or jamborees coming to Dakota Spirit Arena.  The bantam team also has a tournament in Grand Forks Jan. 12-14.

Dennis Karsky, Hall of Famer

We will leave you this week by teasing an upcoming news story by our Melissa Anderson about Dennis Karsky and some other members of the Moonlighters Snowmobile Club that were honored at the Snowmobile North Dakota convention held in Bottineau in early December.  Oops, I probably let the cat out of the bag on some of it as you can see above.  Look for much more on that next time around.

“See ya!” next week!
