Jake’s Take on Sports

Big tip of the cap to our area linemen

Posted 12/6/18

By Jake Kulland

Let’s start this week by giving a gigantic shout out to all the area power company linemen who have worked some very long hours to keep everyone online with electricity in the past week.  Fog, which brought with it frost, put some tremendous stress on power lines across the region, knocking out power some areas, blinking on and off in others.  We were even broadcasting a hockey game at Dakota Spirit Arena on Dec. 1 that went black for 10 minutes.  But thankfully as we write the hard work of our linemen has every back on line, and even better, the sun is finally back out which should take care a lot of the frost on the line issues.  This time of year especially we take for granted the essential things like lights and heat.  I’m sure I can speak for all of readers by saying we appreciate everyone’s efforts to keep all of those things up and running.  Great job.

Jordyn Worley off to a great start at Lake Region State College

We also need to give a shout out to Munich graduate and former All-State Langdon-Edmore-Munich girls basketball player Jordyn Worley this week.  She has been playing at the college level with Lake Region State College.  Through six games, the Lady Royals guard is leading the team in scoring at 16.9 points per game, while averaging 5 rebounds and three assists per contest.  She is shooting just under 50 percent from the field for the season.  The Royals are on the road for all of December, but if you want to see her play live in Devils Lake they have several home dates in January, starting off Jan. 2 at 6:30 p.m. versus Northland Community College. Thanks Jordyn for making us all very proud and best of luck the rest of the season!

All-State Football team;  First ever Cardinals boys team title?

For several reasons, most being my memory, we keep forgetting to say congratulations to the Langdon-Edmore-Munich Cardinals championship football team on getting four players on the North Dakota Class A 11 Man All-State Football Team.  Simon Romfo was first team at quarterback, and Carter Currey first team  on the defensive line, while Jackson Delvo and Grant Romfo made the second team.  Great work by all, and before we leave this week, let’s give some deep thoughts that someone brought up to me last week.  The Cardinals sports programs have won some team sports in the past, in track and golf.  But both of those sports are played individually. So, this person said that this is the truly team sports that Langdon has won in anything when you consider team games are football, basketball and baseball.  Munich has state titles in basketball and baseball, and Edmore in baseball as well, but if you take team sports into account, this is the first one EVER for Langdon.  Just some cool information to pass along, which makes the Cardinals title even more special.

“See ya!” next week!
