Eye on Southwest ND Sports

It looks like Trinity will be Region 7’s entry in the State Volleyball Tournament scheduled Nov. 16-18 at Fargo.  At this writing they were scheduled to play Heart River in the finals of the Region 7 tourney.  They went 11-0 in region play and they totaled 33 set wins and only lost a total of three sets.  They also went 11-0 in the region during the 2015 and 2016 seasons.

The Night Hawk junior varsity team had a good year with a 14-1 record.  This does not include tournament games where I believe they won one and finished second in another.  Also in non-tournament games the C-squad finished with a 5-7 record.

The Night Hawk wrestling team started their practicing this week so I asked head coach Randy Burwick on how the team looks.  He has 27 wrestlers out and they are looking good.  He feels the team will fill every weight class for the matches.  He also mentioned he is impressed with the younger wrestlers such as Corey Christopherson and Tommy Buckmier to name a couple.

Shiloh avenged their regular season loss to New Salem/Glen Ullin and pulled out a 35-30 win to advance to the 9-Man championship game at the Fargo Dome on Nov. 10.  Junior Canaan Fagerland paced Shiloh’s victory as he carried the ball 48 times for 297 yards and five touchdowns. He also had two interceptions.

Both Lemmon and Harding Co. were one match short of making the South Dakota Class B volleyball sweet 16 tournament.  Harding Co. lost to Timber Lake in four sets and Lemmon lost to Faith in four sets.  Faith went on to defeat Philip in five sets to qualify for the state tourney.
