Jake’s Take on Sports

Ahhhhhh, Spring!

Posted 05/04/2017

By Jake Kulland
We roll this week with the news of absolute gorgeous weather across Cavalier County and the region.  Temps have been and are expected to continue to be right around 70 for the week ahead and possibly much longer.  These are perfect conditions to our farmers to get that crop in, and to get in a number of high school sporting activities.  And the spring sports have been going great for all three — The Cardinals baseball team is on a six game winning streak as of this writing, Sidney Ullyott has qualified for the State Boys Golf Tournament, the Cards Girls Golf team has had a slow start to their season but led by senior Jayden Romfo won their first meet and look for more success in the weeks ahead.  And the Langdon-Edmore-Munich track teams have qualified a number of athletes for state, headed by Chase Peebles on the boys side.  Chase qualified in the 100 and 200 meter dashes, the triple jump and I believe the 400 meter run.  We don’t have official stats on the girls, but it looks like Sydney Ellingson, Madi Hart and Lexus Olson are in plus a few more.  It’s good times for everything these days, and let’s hope that continues.
Rachel Hill honored as a state distinguished student finalist
Langdon junior Rachel Hill was honored in Valley City as a finalist for the NDHSAA/Farmers Union Insurance Distinguished Student Award.  Rachel along with five other kids from across the state were interviewed on May 3 for the top honor.  Hill didn’t not won the top honor, which was given to Anna Holen of LaMoure, but it is still an incredible acheviement just to be named a finalist, and as such Rachel will receive at medallion and a 500 dollar scholarship of her choice.  To be a finalist Rachel was recognized for being one of the top students in her class, and also for being a 3-sport athlete (Volleyball, Basketball and Track), plus being involved in band and numerous other school and community related activities.  We congratulate Rachel for getting this awesome recognition and wish her best of luck in the future.
Langdon Country Club Men’s Signup ongoing
The Langdon Country Club has gotten off to a wonderful start, and things are continuing to ramp up.  A reminder that the deadline to sign up a 2-Man team for Tuesday Mens League is coming fast, on May 15.  Just call or text league secretary Randy Hill at 701-370-1118 to get signed up.  If you need a partner, Randy also might have some ideas for you.  The league is set to get started on May 23.

“See ya!” next week!
