Jake’s take on sports

Area athletes shine at the Shrine Bowl, Legion season over for Langdon Red Sox, & Tournament time coming to Langdon Country Club

Posted July 29, 2013

By Jake Kulland

Let’s begin this week by applauding the efforts of our area football players that competed in the 2013 Shrine Bowl, held in Grand Forks July 20. Langdon-Munich had two players on this years team, Colter Pritchard and Austin Winnegge. Pritchard had a fine game, catching five passes for 62 yards, while Winnegge had a great day on the line. Colter is planning to walk on at NDSU, while Austin is signed to play at Moorhead State University. Their east lost to the west in the game 42-41. Also we say congrats to North Border’s Tyler Stockton, who completed 10 out of 14 passes in the nine man game for 215 yards. Tyler is heading for school at Mayville State University. His east team crushed the west 47-6. And Cardinals coach Josh Krivarchka was one of the coaches for the east 11 man team. All around great job by all involved and kudos in representing our area very well.

Legion season over for Langdon Red Sox

The Langdon Red Sox American Legion baseball team closed their season with a win over Cando 7-1 July 22. That game put a cap on a frustrating year for the team, with the worst being unable to compete in postseason play due to a gigantic mix up with the American Legion. While this year was unbelievably rough for almost everyone involved, now that steps are already being taken to make this never happens again. The 2014 State B Legion Tournament will still be held in Langdon July 30-Aug. 3 next year. And work is about to be done at American Legion Field to redo the entire infield. Thanks to an anonymous generous donor for helping out with this project, which is scheduled to be done in August. As we talked about last week, the Langdon Park Board Baseball Committee thanks everyone who donated their time to help out in all aspects of the program this year.

Tournament time coming to Langdon Country Club

Let’s talk up a number of tournaments coming in August to the Langdon Country Club. Aug. 4 is the Men’s City Tournament, Aug. 10 is the Men’s Miller Lite, Aug. 11 is the Ladies City Tournament, and Aug. 16 is the annual Mixed Glo-Ball tourney. Signup for all four tournaments can be taken care of at the clubhouse or by calling 256-5938. These tourneys come fast and furious, and August is generally the busiest time at the course. This week will also be Tuesday Night Men’s and Stag Night plus Wednesday Night Women’s league as usual at the course.

Langdon 12U Girls Softball Team wins state title

We will leave you this week by saying congratulations the Langdon Green girls softball team, who won the 12U State Tournament held in Jamestown July 20. Now, there wasn’t the deepest field involved in this years tourney, but a state title is a state title. Congrats to the girls on a fantastic season. One of winningest programs of any sport in Langdon has been girls softball. And this year it has without a doubt had the most participation of any sport, no matter what the time of year. Here’s to continued success next summer!


“See ya!” next week!
