Hettinger’s Little League and Coach Pitch teams are nearing the end of their season and an excellent season is has been. As of July 8 the Coach Pitch team was undefeated with one game left on July 9 at New England. They will finish their season with the season ending tourney at Killdeer on July 10. The Little League only has one loss and that was to Belfield. Their season ending tourney is at Bowman on July 15-16. Their last game is at New England also on July 9.

Junior Duals was not kind to the North Dakota Blue team as a team finished the tournament 2-6 with wins over Louisiana and Kentucky. But individual success did come in the form of three undefeated wrestlers from ND in Kyle Burwick (Hettinger), Ryan Ripplinger (Bismarck), and Reece Barnhardt (Bismarck). Burwick and Ripplinger went a perfect 8-0 on Team North Dakota’s top “Blue” squad, while Barnhardt was 7-0 wrestling for ND Red. Not only did Burwick go undefeated, the University of Wisconsin commit didn’t give up a single point over the course of two days. Burwick racked up seven technical falls and a pin while holding down the 126 pound weight class. Barnhardt joined Burwick in finishing undefeated in the 126 pound weight class. In total, Burwick and Barnhardt combined to finish 15-0 and outscore opponents 131-0 in matches ended via technical fall. Tate Nordby of New England wrestled for the North Dakota Red team and went 4-1. (Source ND Wrestle)
