There's an old adage "sharing is caring." The adage is relevant as hunters are urged to share their deer heads for Chronic Wasting Disease surveillance efforts by the North Dakota Game and Fish Department taking place on the western side of the state. "The first thing you need to do with Chronic Wasting Disease is to monitor to know if it exists in the population," said Randy Kreil, NDGF Department wildlife supervisor. "It's hard to monitor the entire state every year, so we split the state into thirds.
Midway through the second quarter, the final score came over the airwaves that Carrington had beat Rugby by 9 points. By that time, Beulah's Karson Hintz had scored his third touchdown of the game. And the senior running back wasn't even done yet. Hintz rushed for 157 yards and five touchdowns in the first half to lead the No. 4-ranked Miners past Trinity 42-6 in a Class 2A, West Region game on Tuesday at the Biesiot Activities Center. "He (Hintz) had a good game," Beulah head coach Jim Dooley said. "Up front, we did a nice job. We didn't have to throw the ball a whole lot.
The Dickinson State volleyball team was within striking distance to tie the match in the second set after a Melissa Avila kill. Montana Tech's Mikayla Sullivan didn't let that happen. The freshman middle hitter struck down back-to-back kills and Sydney Norris finished off the set with an ace as the Orediggers swept the Blue Hawks 25-20, 26-24, 25-22 in a Frontier Conference match on Saturday at Scott Gymnasium. "We were fortunate to stick around in the second set," Montana Tech first-year head coach Brian Solomon said. "They just had a couple big plays at the end.
At the beginning of the season, the Dickinson High boys and girls cross country teams had two dates in mind: today and Saturday, Oct. 27. The West Region meet begins at noon today in Jamestown. In two weeks, Dickinson hosts the Class A and B state meets. "It's exciting to know that everything that we've worked for is finally here," Dickinson senior Shelby Stoltz said. "We know that we have to put everything we've done in the last couple months to use." The process of becoming a solid cross country team hasn't come overnight.
Dickinson High School senior Madi Steier, middle right, reacts to winning homecoming queen on Friday at the Biesiot Activities Center. Gabe Dschaak, left, won homecoming king. Austin Mack, the cardboard cutout, was unable to attend the homecoming ceremonies because he's playing in the Class A state soccer as part of the Bismarck Century team.
Dickinson High senior Jordan Krieg isn't bashful about saying football isn't his favorite sport. However, Krieg knows playing football is beneficial to be a better athlete in every other sport. "The training for football helps you in all your sports," Krieg said. "The countless hours in the weight room is not only going to make you a better football player, but it's going to help you in other sports. "There's the mental toughness needed to get through practices. The mental toughness needed to finish out the season and play a game for all four quarters.
The Dickinson Trinity football team didn't have much success this year playing at the Badlands Activities Center. But the Titans are perfect at the newly renamed Biesiot Activities Center. Trinity scored one touchdown in all four quarters to defeat Bottineau 28-13 on Thursday in a Class 2A, West Region game. "We needed to win and it was the biggest game of the year," Trinity head coach Randy Gordon said. "Bottineau is a great team. They played Beulah right to the end." With the win, the Titans (5-3, 4-2 West) inch closer to nabbing a playoff spot.
The 100-mile trip from Dickinson to Bismarck for soccer practice or games never gets any closer for Austin Mack. But it has all been worth it. Last weekend, the Dickinson High senior was named West Region Senior Athlete of the Year as the lone boys soccer player in the school's co-op with Bismarck Century, which has been in place since his freshman year. "Soccer has always been my passion," Mack said.
Heart River head coach Dave Hendrickson knows his team has a long road ahead of them before the season is over. The No. 3-ranked Cougars host New Salem-Almont-Glen Ullin at 7 p.m. on Friday in a Class 1A, Region 4 game. Though Heart River has already sealed a playoff berth, the team isn't looking past the Holsteins. "Our players aren't looking past this one," Hendrickson said. "We haven't lost a home game in two years. It's a big game for us." Since the 29-27 loss against Killdeer on Sept. 28, the Cougars have earned back-to-back wins over region opponents.
As for the only moose he saw, Dickinson's Nathan Ingman's moose turned out to a record breaker. Ingman downed a Canadian Moose, whose antlers width measure 57 inches and the Pope and Young score marked at 181, a couple miles north of the Columbus. "Nothing really full hit until I got him loaded up in my pickup," Ingman said. The previous high Pope and Young score for a Canadian Moose was 162-3/8 set back in 1994. "I thought it was incredible that I got one," Ingman said. "There are guys who have hunted for moose and not even seen any.
