Jake’s Take on Sports

Weather issues make for some interesting schedule changes

More cold, wind and snow hit our area in the past week.  It has forced things to be moved around once again.  The Langdon-Edmore-Munich Cardinals girls basketball team, with the blessing of the Langdon Ministerial Association, played a rare Wednesday game on Feb. 6 at Warwick.  This was the only day they could squeeze it in before the girls postseason begins, and Warwick did not want to lose the game because it was their Parents Night.  Another round a cold and wind hit on Feb. 6, forcing the Cardinals boys basketball game to be postponed to the afternoon of Feb. 9, which is also semifinal night of the District 8 Girls Basketball Tournament.  So, we are going to attempt to cover everything including an hour of Coaches Corner on our KNDK stations.  It should be a very wild experience.  The week ahead offers a little warmup, but hopefully no more winter stormy weather, as I think we have all had quite enough (Although it has been worse in years past).  A reminder that Senior Night for the Cardinals boys basketball team will held on Feb. 12 when they entertain Midkota.

State Wrestling Tournament coming Feb. 14-16

The winter sports postseason rolls on with the State A & B Wrestling Tournament being held at the Fargodome Feb. 14-16.  The Pembina County North team just missed getting in the State Dual portion of the tourney, but they hoped to qualify a number of wrestlers individually in several weight classes.  We wish all area grapplers good luck at state.  The next big tournament is the Region 4 Girls Tourney in Devils Lake Feb. 18-21, immediately followed by the District 8 Boys Basketball Tournament which will be held in Langdon-Edmore Feb. 22-25.

Happy 80th Birthday to my Mom

We are running out of time (And room) for the column this week, but I need to give a huge shout out to my Mom, Ellen Kulland who will celebrate her 80th birthday this week.  She is the sweetest person I know, and to prove that, she was born on Valentine’s Day.  Despite all of the anxiety and craziness that her youngest child (That would be me) has caused over these many years, she has always been 100 percent supportive and has been just awesome.  If it was not for my Mom, I would never have found music, and most likely would never have found a niche in playing in bands which has been a passion of mine for like ever.  So Happy Birthday Mom, I love you and thank you for all that you have down for me and Sister Jan!

“See ya!” Next week!
