In a story in this weeks paper, you will see that the Langdon-Edmore-Munich football, Callie Ronningen and Rob Scherr all received honors. This is not the first time this has happened, as we look back at the history of the awards and found that Karla Beck was named Best Female Athlete in 2004, Phil Farris got Best Male Athlete in 1977, Cadyn Schwabe Best Male Athlete in 2019, and two Cavalier County coaches, Jack DeMaine and the late great Roger Snortland, won Coach of the Year awards in 1983 and 1985 respectively. These awards are unique in the fact that it encompasses all high school sports for both Class A and B. So if you win, it's really saying something. Congrats to all winners past and present.

Major League Baseball set to come back July 23
We will leave you this week with some kind of happy news that Major League Baseball has finally agreed to begin their season on July 23-24. It will be a 60 game schedule, with a full postseason, including the World Series. The Minnesota Twins will begin training for the season at Target Field on July 1 (Although it has been recently reported that several of their players have tested positive for the corona virus). The Twins will play 40 games against their American League Central rivals, and 20 games versus NL Central clubs (The schedule wasn't out yet at press time). Even though it will be a short season, their is a lot of excitement for this years Twins team, as they added All-Star infielder Josh Donaldson to an already potent lineup in the off season, while also trying to address their pitching issues. For baseball fans like myself, seeing the majors get back in action is something we have all been thristing for all summer. Let's hope they are able to play when July 23 comes around.
"See ya!" next week!
