Jake’s Take on Sports

Things are beginning to roll

 We start this week by telling that spring activities are finally getting going for all three high school sports.  Of course, as we say this there is actually a chance of snow for our area in the first part of the week ahead, but we will take what we are getting.  Spring’s work is also starting to roll, although it may be short lived depending on the weather that is forecast.  Although it is going to be a little chilly, there were still going through with a track meet in Langdon on April 27 beginning at 11am.  And the the Langdon-Edmore-Munich high school baseball team is scheduled to have their home opener versus Grafton on April 29, which will hopefully happen.  The Cardinals will look to get some hits off the Spoilers this time around, as Grafton pitcher Brady Gunderson threw a perfect game against them on April 23.  The Cards got some awful news on of their teams leaders, Simon Romfo, broke the tip of the ring finger of his left hand in a farm accident over the Easter Weekend.  We hope Simon heals and can come back to the team at 100 percent, but time will determine if that is possible.

Langdon Country Club Spring Meeting April 30

  The Langdon Country Club will hold it’s spring meeting on April 30 at 6:30pm in the clubhouse.  Many items dealing with the upcoming golf season will be discussed, and all members are welcome to attend.  The course officially opened last week, and we are told everything, especially the greens came through the winter in tremendous shape.  One golfer explained to me that the course is in late fall shape already, which means very good things, as that is usually when the course looks and plays its best.  Tuesday Men’s League Golf is continuing its signup, and to get a 2-Man team registered, simply call or text Randy Hill at 701-370-1118 for either the early 3:30pm or late 6pm shift.  The club has already hosted a boys high school meet on April 26, and more are on the way.

Summer Baseball signup deadline is May 1

  We will leave with a reminder that if you have not signed you kids for summer Girls Softball, T-Ball, Pee Wee, Little League, Babe Ruth or American Legion Baseball, please do so by May 1 to avoid a late fee.  They really need to get the number figured out for how many teams they are going have and how many coaches will be needed.  Forms are available at all schools in Cavalier County if you have not received one yet.  So far the numbers are fantastic in all divisions, but they want to make sure no one gets left out, so get your child signed up as soon as possible.

“See ya!” next week!
