Jake’s Take on Sports

November bringing on the cold

Posted 10/31/19

By Jake Kulland

As most of you read these words, we are expecting a decent start weather wise into the month of November, but don’t expect to last very long, as it appears that 20 degree high temperatures are in store for us at least the first half of the month.  The cold and freezing temperatures has at least helped farmers continue what seems like an endless harvest.  It looks to very a little chilly for a possible playoff football game in Langdon on Nov. 9, which would be for the right for the Cardinals to advance to their third straight Dakota Bowl at the Fargodome.  But before any of that, the Cards need to get by a talented Oakes squad on Nov. 2.  We wish them the best of luck on what has been another fantastic high school football season.

Senior Night for Lady Cards Volleyball Nov. 4

The last home match of the season for the Langdon-Edmore-Munich Cardinals volleyball team is coming on Nov. 4 when they host the North Star Bearcats.  Five seniors — Callie Ronningen, Calyn Crockett, Kaitlynn Scherr, Brooke Bakke and McKenna Belle will be recognized before the match along with their parents for their great dedication to the Lady Cards program.  Their opponent that night will be on of the more tougher teams that they have played as of late, as the Bearcats are led by sophomore hitter Danielle Hagler.  But the Cardinals have been playing some great volleyball as of late, and they should be up for the challenge, as it will be a fun match to watch.  After this match, the Cards will get ready for the Region 4 Volleyball Tournament, which will be held in Devils Lake Nov. 11-14.  Hopefully you can get and see their last match at home this season on Nov. 4.

Cross Country season comes to an end

The State Cross Country Meet was held in Minot on Oct. 26.  The Langdon-Edmore-Munich Cardinals boys and girls teams both finished in the top 10 of their respective divisions, with seniors Elise Ramberg and Blaine Perry each making the all-state team by finishing in the top 20 individually.

We congratulate both teams, especially the seniors mentioned above plus two more elder classmen in Arik Christianson and Logan Harder.  It was a banner year for Coach Todd Hetler and his teams, which finished the best they have at state in several years.  Congrats to all.

November mean things are cooking at Dakota Spirit Arena

Practices have begun for all levels of Langdon Blades hockey.  They actually began the last week of October, but the month November means things really start happening.  It’s just practicing for now, but games will start rolling the weekend of Nov. 16.  In the week ahead, there is a board meeting on Nov. 4 at 6:00pm, and a referee seminar at the arena on Nov. 7 at 6:00pm.  The Langdon Skate Club has also begun, and for more information on anything going on at the arena call 701-256-5242, or check out their website at

“See ya!” next week!
