Eye on Southwest ND Sports

According to Tom Mix from NDHSAA; “Class B Girls BB is heading back to the Betty Engelstad Sioux Center next winter. It was previously scheduled to be at the Minot State Dome.


Arena availability played a role in the switch. The Betty had the dates open and since it was an excellent venue this past season our Board thought it would be wise to see how it performs there again next year based on the recommendation of our Tournament Committee. Minot State Dome is undergoing renovations this spring/summer. Minot State Dome will host Class B Girls and Class B Boys Basketball Tournaments in 2021.”
The Night Hawk varsity baseball roster lists 17 players with four experienced pitchers in Warrick Dilse, Jeran Anderson, Ty Warbis and Mason Defoe. I feel Beulah with ten seniors on their roster will be the Region 8 favorite. They finished tied for first in the region last year with Shiloh. Shiloh dropped their two opening games this season, 12-4 to Park River/ Fordville-Lankin and 5-3 to Langdon Area/Edmore/ Munich. Park River was state champs the past two years. The Night Hawks have the potential to be in the hunt for the region title.
Coaching the elementary volleyball teams are Jon Kohler, Brooke Schnider and Carolyn Schultz with the 6th grade. Katrina Johnson along with Briana Sanford and Talia Carter have the fifth grade. Reba Resner and Kaitlin Jahner coach the 4th grade. Also helping out are Ally Schalesky and Anna Havelka.
