According to Brent Bautz, the superintendent of Richardton-Taylor High School, the Richardton-Taylor-Hebron football game with Hettinger-Scranton, originally scheduled for August 28 will be made up on September 22 at Richardton.  The game was postponed after a possible MRSA staph infection was discovered within the school.

The Night Hawk Cross Country team participated in the Bowman Coounty Invite on September 3.  The girls junior varsity had the best results as they came in fourth place.  Sidra Sadowsky was the top finisher for the Night Hawks with a 6th-place finish and a 3K time of 14:17.  Other finishers were Katrina Poss 12th, 14:53.79 and Beth Lien 20th, 16:48.03.  Winning this division was Jana Mischke of Williston with a time of 13:11.39.  Hettinger-Scranton had no entries in the boys Junior Varsity.  Williston also won the boys division.

Girls JV Team results:

(First) Williston 15, Bowman Co. 57, Killdeer 74, Hettinger-Scranton 93, Beulah-Hazen 130, Hebron 139, and Watford City 140

Both the girls and boys varsity teams finished in sixth place in the varsity meets.  The girls had a 4K run while the boys were 5K.  Top finisher for the girls was Rebecca Knutson, 21st, with a time of 20:38.51.  Winning time was 15:57.86.  Top finisher for the boys was Haden Sadowsky, 20th, with a time of 20:09.08.  Winning time was 16:08.35.  Bowman Co. won the girls division while Beulah-Hazen won the boys.

Bowman’s junior high team is off to another good start as they have defeated Mott-Regent 46-14 and Baker, Mont., 40-0.  Their web site shows they have a roster of 24.

Prior to their loss against Lemmon, the Night Hawk football team had received votes in 9-man football poll.  Cavalier was rated No. 1.

In a non-sports related topic, congratulations to a Hettinger High School graduate Sgt. Colin Dunn.  He took top honors in the ND National Guard’s 2015 “Best Warrior” competition recently held at the Camp Grafton Training Center.

The September 6 edition of the Bismarck Tribune had an interesting article on the return of football in Alexander, N.D.  After 27 years without a team, football is back thanks to the oil boom and community support.  They are also fielding a volleyball team.  It is well worth reading.
