The Dickinson High volleyball team has grown accustomed to winning in recent years. That mindset and those expectations aren't changing this year as the Midgets have four senior returning starters taking the floor. "We have six seniors, who are going to see a lot of playing time," Dickinson head coach Jay Schobinger said. "They've gone out and proven themselves.
My time at The Dickinson Press has just passed a year in mid-July and I've had many different experiences in that time, but not quite like the experience I had last Thursday night. I've always been a night owl and being a sports and outdoors reporter is exactly the job to use my goofy sleeping schedule to my advantage. After working late Thursday night putting together the final touches on the football preview with my sports editor, Dustin Monke, I stayed later reading through the preview three or four times and didn't arrive home until 1:30 a.m. I knew when I pulled up to my house I was go
In her first year as Dickinson Trinity's head volleyball coach, Rayma Braaten inherited a senior heavy lineup. In her second year, Braaten has one returning starter and a lineup full of unknowns. However, she said with a smile, "Teams might not be afraid of us, but they should be." The Titans return senior starter Alyson Schieno, who was one of top hitters in Region 7 last season, juniors Katelyn Grinsteinner and Gretchen Weir and sophomore Katelyn Dockter, who came off the bench last year. "Right now I have one starter from last year," Braaten said.
The regular season opener for elk is nearly a month away, but an unknown mystery is already taking shape. The North Dakota Game and Fish Department had to euthanize an elk near the Slope and Billings county border this past week, because of unknown circumstances. "An owner from southern Slope County said there was a bull elk laying off the road a couple hundred yards," NDGF Department big game supervisor Bruce Stillings said.
The first time Dickinson and Omaha (Neb.) PI Midwest met each other in the Central Plains Regional Tournament, the Nebraska state champions put on a 10-run thumping. Oh, what three days and three wins did for the surprising Roughriders American Legion baseball team. Dickinson battled until the end, but didn't have enough firepower as Omaha took a 7-3 win in the second meeting between the two teams of the tournament in the play-in to the championship game Monday on Astoria Field at Southside Ballpark. The loss ended the host team's remarkable run to the final day of the tournament despite en
All throughout the season, Dickinson Roughriders head coach Cory Hansen said he had a special team. It was an American Legion baseball team that never gave up, fought to the end and climbed out of early deficits. But, they could never get over the hump and accomplish something special. It turns out, Hansen was right. On Sunday night, something special finally happened.
Two things can happen when Minnesota American Legion baseball teams as familiar as Eden Prairie and Edina play each other. It will either be a pitching duel or a hitting parade. This time it was an offensive showdown at the Central Plains Regional Tournament. "Eden Prairie is in our district, they are coached very well and they are a very good hitting team," Edina head coach Nick Kennedy said.
The Dickinson Roughriders' Cinderella story continues at the Central Plains Regional Tournament. Led by Korey Kallenbach's magnificent performance on the mound, the Roughriders claimed a 5-1 victory over Papillion (Neb.) Pinnacle Bank in the loser-out round of the American Legion baseball tournament on Saturday afternoon on Astoria Field at Southside Ballpark. "I felt great," Kallenbach said with a smile. "I had all my off-speed pitches working perfectly.
Eden Prairie's Cameron Mingo and Omaha PI Midwest's Jeff Albrecht were locked into a pitcher's duel for the first six innings. That was until Albrecht and Mingo were replaced by relief pitchers and the show was taken over by an Eden Prairie bench player.
Dickinson didn't want to recreate its one-hit, 10-run loss experience from Thursday night. In fact, the American Legion baseball team didn't want to stop playing at all. "(On Thursday), we had one hit and we just weren't ready to play," Dickinson shortstop Dylan Skabo said.
