Some of Gillian Brouillard (114) was the Press By Kevin Skavhaug So, where were we? Oh yes, we were dis- cussing the proposal to tran- sition volleyball from a win- ter sport to a fall sport. Well, ok, maybe it wasn't that long ago that I was working for the Walsh County Press and writ- ing this weekly column but a few years have certainly passed since I was last keep- ing pace with the Press Sports reports. So I'm back. And excited to be once again taking over the Sports section of the Walsh County Press. The plan is to once again start local coverage of our own hometown sports teams right here in the Press. There will be weekly sports reports on the games, meets, or matches. We will be bringing back the weekly col- umn entitled Full Court Press that will touch on local issues pertinent to sports. From time to time there will be room for a look back in the annuals of time and see who did what-when, where, and how. And I hope we get the opportunity to feature new and unique stories about people, places and things as feature stories from right here in Park River or the sur- rounding area. For those of you old, or new to Park River (and there are many of he latter), I hope that the Walsh County Press will be able to provide you with all of the things I've mentioned above and more. I believe that a big part of the heart and soul of any small community is it's youth and how those youth are fair- ing in their sporting and ath- letic events ranks high on the interest of many people. So that will be my primary fo- cus, to shine a light (to go along with Larry's photogra- phy) on our local athletes and our sports teams. A look into the great outdoors has and always will be a passion of mine so stories with that genre will be seen within these pages occasionally as well. So there you have it. The Press will take on a new di- mension in the next few weeks that we hope will have readers excited to join in. As for me, I am excited to come back home so to speak. We've got some things to fill you in about. the girls on this year's team weren't even born yet. But the Aggies will be heading to Jamestown next week to com- pete as a team for the first time since 1999. TheAggies finished third in the region tournament which is good enough to make the tournament. "I'm excited for the second lowest and the two earned top 10 honors and a region play- er medallion. Other team members were Kylie Jacobsen 122, Kaitlyn Nel- son 123 and Claire Welch 124. Langdon won the meet with a team score of 395. North Star was second with a 444. Right:.

Boys Golfers puac00. at Regionals Arendt Player of the Year By Kevin Skavhaug of The Press LARIMORE, N.D. -- For Carter Arendt and Spencer Re- hovsky, Friday started early and ended late. The two double sport athletes pulled double duty with a region golf meet in the morning and a region track meet that went late into the night. Despite the hec- tic day, things turned out quite well for both. Arendt and Rehovsky each shot an 88 on an unforgiving Lari- more course as they lead the Ag- gies to a second place finish and a birth in next week's State Class B Golf tournament. Arendt, who was hitting warm up balls at 6:15 Friday morning, ended the day ten hours later as a member of the region champion 4x100 meter relay team. (See sto- ry on Page 10) Weather issues over the past few days forced area sporting events to find a day when it was- n't raining. Friday looked to be the best bet to get both events in without rain. The decision was perfect. The Aggies shot a team 364 to finish 18 strokes behind eventual region champion Hatton North- wood Thompson. Larimore was a close third with a 366. Arendt, who was voted Re- gion player of the year, was quick to point out that the demands of the day were a little taxing on every- one. "It was a pretty demandingly crazy day," said Arendt. "By the end of it I was pretty much done." Others factoring into the team score were Jordan Johnson (93) and Josh Ruzicka (95). Spencer Skavhaug (100) and Daniel Onstad (104) also will advance to the state tournament as members of the Aggie team. It was the fifth straight year the Aggies have made it to state. Last year the Ag- gies finished 13th of 18 teams. "Overall we didn't play our best golf today, but when you play at Larimore, you take what you get and we'll take the second place finish and live to play an- other day." That other day will be at Car- rington beginning a week from to- day. Arendt was named senior play- er of the year for Region 3. Arendt won five of seven meets this year and was the defending region champion.
