Word from Stephanie Howe on the Cross Country team; “We haven’t had a meet since August. Mandan was cancelled due to weather and so was Becki Wells that was supposed to be today (Sept. 20).  Hopefully we can get some more meets in before regionals!

No one sends out an overall volleyball poll for Class B, although Class A has polls are conducted.  Thanks to Head Beulah Volleyball Coach Brian Filibeck for putting out a Region 7 poll.  I looked at some Class B schools and I believe these three teams could be in the top five state wide,  Oakes 21-1 overall in Region 3, Carrington 8-0 overall in Region 3, and Our Redeemer’s 12-1 overall in Region 6.  Our Redeemer’s only loss as of Sep 23 was to Oakes. 


The elementary football team was 3-0 when they took on Bowman on September 19.  Bowman displayed good defense and an excellent quarterback in Jackson Fischer.  The young Night Hawks were down 26-0 after three quarters but put on a 4th quarter comeback that fell just short as they lost 34-24Coach Kortney Kindsfater commented on the game; “Last weeks loss against Bowman was definitely a “tough loss”.  We were looking forward to the chance of an undefeated season but our team did not play up to their ability and Bowman did.  We took this as a learning opportunity on many levels and allowed this loss to put our young Night Hawks vulnerabilities back into perspective.  Our kids are aware that they need to beat Baker this week so that they get a chance to play Bowman again in Bowman for the title.”  Their final game is at Scranton on Sept. 24 against Baker and the playoffs will be on September 28 at Bowman.
