The Night Hawk baseball team lost a tough one to Washburn-Wilton-Center-Stanton (WWCS) on May 5 at Washburn.  Holding a 2-0 lead going into the bottom of the seventh, as they say, the wheels fell off.  WWCS struck for nine runs with a combination of key hits, a couple of walks and some errors by the Night Hawks.  That game counted in the Region standings.  In the 5-inning non-region second game the Night Hawks came out on top 8-1 behind the 2-hit pitching of Brett Christopherson.  Jaxon Mellmer and Mack Buckmier each had three hits for the Night Hawks.

The Night Hawk home baseball game versus Hazen scheduled for May 9 was cancelled due to weather.  It will be rescheduled to May 16 and WWCS will be here on May 17.  That will conclude the regular season and the regional will start on May 23 at Shiloh.

Congrats to the Emily Ehlis, New England High School and Mikayla Bartholomay , Bowman County High Sschool.  They were honored as their school’s 2016-2017 Distinguished Student and submitted to the NDHSAA for consideration as the State Distinguished Student.
