It looks like Beulah and Shiloh will finish one-two in region play and should be considered the favorites in the upcoming Region 8 baseball tourney at Hettinger, May 20-23. I would consider Hazen a wild card as they have split with Beulah and Heart River and defeated Shiloh twice. The Night Hawks defeated Hazen 12-2 and are scheduled to play them again on May 16. That game should determine who is seeded #3 and #4 at the region tourney. Beulah and Shiloh split their two games. The Night Hawks can’t be counted out as they have three solid pitchers and if their whole team is available and their bats come alive they could create upsets. Heart River has played better ball this season but I don’t think they are ready to challenge for the top spot. I believe Beulah will come out on top.
The two best records in Class B baseball right now are Park River/Fordville-Lankin at 18-0 and Mohall/Lansford/Sherwood (MLS)-Glenburn at 25-2.
The Night Hawks had to cancel out of the Enderlin tourney scheduled for May 10-11 due to having to play a makeup game with Heart River on May 11. That game was rescheduled from May 7 due to weather and then it was cancelled again on May 11 due to Mother Nature.
