Eye on South West ND Sports

For the Record

Hettinger-Scranton defeated Beulah on Sept. 7 in three sets, 25-19, 25-9, 25-21. Molly Holt led the Night Hawks in kills with nine, Abbie Kludt had two blocks, Carolyn Schultz had 14 digs and Callie Anderson added 17 assists. The C squad lost two out of three while the junior varsity won.

Reba Resner informed me that the C squad finished last in pool play in the Sept. 9 Bowman volleyball tourney. But they did win one set from Trinity, Mott and Lemmon! She added, “It was a great learning experience and we grew and improved through the day!”

The Night Hawk Varsity volleyball team took their annual trip to Casselton for the “Volley in the Valley” tournament. They finished fourth in the Silver Division falling to Park River/Fordville Lankin, 22-25, 26-24, 15-11. Central Cass was the overall winner defeating Milnor, 25-11, 25-11 in the Gold Division Championship match.

New Town again looks to be the favorite in boys Class B cross country as they finished first in the Cross Country Kiwanis meet at Mandan. They had the top three runners in 1. Jalen Chase, 16:06.36 (5K), 2. Jaiven Hale, 16:21.45 and 3. Robert White, 16:22.30. 29. Andrew Miller was the highest finisher for Bowman Co. finishing 29th at 17:43.35, and Cale Schalesky was the top Night Hawk finisher at 65th, 19:33.39. 66. There were 23 teams involved with Bismarck Legacy finishing in second place, Bowman Co. finished eighth and the Night Hawks 20th.

I was incorrect last week when I wrote that Bowman County’s football win over Trinity was their first game back in 11-man. It was actually their second game as the defeated New Town in their opening game. Bowman did lose to a very good Killdeer team last Friday by a score of 24-14.

The Hettinger-Scranton elementary football team won their last two games. They defeated New England 14-7 and Heart River 8-6.
