Jake’s Take on Sports

Spring Sports come to an end

Posted 5/30/19

By Jake Kulland

As we roll this time around, we are doing the transition from spring sports into summer.  The State Class B High School Baseball Tournament is underway in Fargo, and as a matter of fact we just got done broadcasting the first game of the tourney as we write with Thompson scratching out a one run win over North Star 5-4.  It’s the first time ever in the Bearcats co-op history to make to state in baseball, and they just missed making it a successful one.  North Star lost the Region 5 title three years in a row before finally making it to the Big Dance.  That’s something the Langdon-Edmore-Munich Cardinals team will look forward to next year, as they lost for the third straight year in the Region 4 championship to Park River-Fordville-Lankin, getting as close as two outs away to the title.  The Cardinals will have almost the entire team back for next year, losing only talented senior Ethan Sampson.  On the track side, Langdon-Edmore-Munich took third in the girls portion of the state tournament in Bismarck, which is a fantastic feat being all of their place winners are underclassmen.  They have a very bright future.  You can find a feature story on the Lady Cards track team in this week’s Republican. State Golf was just completed at the time of this writing, and we will have complete coverage for that next week.  Let’s move on and talk up some summer events now:

Langdon Post 98 Red Sox to begin Legion ball this week

Right on the heels of spring sports is the American Legion baseball season.  Tanner Groth is coaching the Langdon Red Sox team once again this season, and they are scheduled to play at home versus Park River on June 6, although it may be moved to Park River at press time.  Meanwhile, the Langdon Babe Ruth baseball program has a new coaching regime, as Dave Hein and Kalton Agnes are taking over for Kade Pengilly and Logan Waslaski.  Their first game is June 4 at Minto.  Both teams have a lot of talent this year and should be very fun to watch.  We hope to have a complete Legion schedule in next week’s paper.

Langdon Country Club begins tournament season;  Wednesday Womens league to begin June 5

We will leave you this week with lots of good news from the Langdon Country Club.  Tuesday morning and Wednesday women’s leagues are beginning this week, on June 4-5 respectively.  For the Wednesday league contact Jenny Romfo to sign up your 2-Woman team by calling or texting her at 701-370-0098.  Also the first tournament of the season on the course is coming June 8, the Cavalier County Memorial Hospital Foundation Tourney.  This year’s event will be a tribute to long-time foundation director Mary Shankar, who sadly past away a few months ago.  She put in a lot of hard work for this tournament, which is now in its 25th year.  McKinzie Sivertson is the new foundation director, and she tells us that 75 golfers are signed up, but they will take more in this two person scramble event.  To get involved just contact her at the foundation office.  We will talk up more upcoming tourneys the next time we visit.

“See ya!” next week!
