Jake’s Take on Sports

Moving into the postseason for spring sports

Posted 5/9/19

By Jake Kulland

As we get into mid-May already this week, the postseason is upon us for high school spring sports.  The week ahead will feature regional boys and girls golf meets, and on May 17 it’s the Northeast Region Track Meet coming to Larimore.  For high school baseball, the Region 4 Tournament will go on May 20 in Park River and Grafton.  It’s an exciting time of year, and the weather in the week ahead looks very good to get all of these of events in.  We have lots more to tell you about this week, so let’s get on it:

Lady Cards girls golfers lose first regular season meet in seven years

Something a little shocking happened at a high school girls golf meet in Grafton on May 6.  The Langdon-Edmore-Munich girls golf team lost a regular season meet to Grafton by two shots.  The shocking part of this story is that this is the first time a Lady Cards team has lost a meet in the regular season in seven years (!!).  The couple of years the Cardinals girls haven’t just been winning, but they had been doing it by like 40 shots of better as a team.  They hope this is just a bump in the road as they get ready to defend their Region 3 title this week.  We congratulate Savannah Ullyott and Greta Haslekaas for qualifying for the State Meet, and more Cardinals should be also getting in after the regional meet is completed.  A streak has been broken, but they hope a new one will begin.

Cardinals track has two more State Qualifiers;  Ramberg breaks a 36 year school record

The Langdon-Edmore-Munich track teams have qualified two more athletes for the state meet coming up in a few weeks.  Carter Currey has made it in the boys discus, and in very exciting news, Elise Ramberg broke a school record in the 2-Mile run (Now called the 3200 meters), breaking the record set by Cindy Fetsch Agnes way back in 1983!  Langdon had some very strong track teams back in the eighties, so breaking a record like this is a really big deal.  Congrats to Elise, Carter and the rest of the team as they try to get more athletes to state in the week ahead.

Tuesday Men’s League Golf still signing up teams;  Deadline is May 15

Randy Hill, secretary of the Tuesday Men’s Golf League at the Langdon Country Club, tells us that he still not heard from several teams planning on golfing in the league this year.  He needs to get the schedule together since it all begins on May 21, so please get in touch with him if you plan on golfing by calling or texting him at 701-370-1118.  If you have no idea what I’m talking about (Which happens now and then), Tuesday Mens League consists of 2-Man team, and there are two shifts at 3:30 p.m. and 6 p.m.  By the way, Wednesday Womens League will begin on June 5, and Jenny Romfo is the contact person for that league.

Baseball in Munich on May 13

We will leave you by saying we will in Munich to broadcast and cover some high school baseball on May 13.  The Langdon-Edmore-Munich Cardinals team plays one game a year at Edgar Westphal Field, and Monday is that day it will happen when they host Pembina County North.  I have so many great memories of being at that park, so it will be fun getting back there and enjoying what looks to be a beautiful day for baseball.  We hope you all can attend!

“See ya!” next week!
