Page 8 SPORTS THE WALSH COUNTY PRESS WEDNESDAY, JUNE 3, 2015 Press By Kevin Skavhaug Hey Remember... From time to time, this weekly column will switch gears. Every now and we can take a little trip back in time, using archives of old Walsh County Press back is- sues to remind everyone of what life was like (in terms of sports anyway) in our area. It used to be called my "Hey Remember" column. So today will be the first look back. Some of you may have a recollection of the events. Some of you will recognize names. Some of you even took part in them. In any case, I do hope it brings back good memories. Hey, remember back in... 1990 when the Park Riv- er-Pisek Volleyball team won their second straight Region III tournament. Sunny Spoonland, Paula Knutson, Christy Robinson, Lisa Fontaine and Karl and Jenny Houser were the mainstays for the Aggies. Donna Gal- loway was their coach. 1978 when the Park Riv- er Aggies girls basketball team defeated the Adams Rockets 31-29 to claim 3rd place in Adams Invitational tournament. Theresa Kachena led the Aggies in scoring for the tournament with 34 points. Cheryl Weisz followed with 20 and Jane Thompson 16. 2001 when the Park Riv- er Aggies Football team de- feated Dakota Prairie 33 to 6 behind the running of Jay Thompson and the throw- ing of Jonathan Berg. 1940 when Kermit Berg of Edinburg won the national Potato Picking contest in Barnesville, Minnesota. Berg picked 1,856 pounds of Po- tatoes in an hour to win the ti- tle. Kermit received $50 for his efforts. 1961 when Eugene Kachena was named Saluta- torian of Pisek High School. Eugene played basketball and baseball at Pisek High and later coached and is still active as a basketball referee and baseball official. 1961 when Grafton de- feated the WCAS Aggies 50- 40 in the Aggies season open- er. Pete Setness led the Spoil- ers with 12. Larry Englerth and Harold Harris each had 12 for Park River. William Galloway was the Aggie head coach and would one day (1974) be enshrined into the ND Officials Hall of Fame. 1974 when Park River de- feated Bismarck High 8-1 in Hockey. Karl Chromy had four goals to lead the Aggie attack. Rick Thompson, Doug Flaten, Don FlaCon and Doug Vavrosky each had one goal. 1977 when the Aggie foot- ball team fell behind 20-0 to Cooperstown but came back to claim a 29-22 win under head coach Larry Houser. Frank Bjornson had three touchdowns and wen Berg one to lead the Aggies to the win. 2009 when number nine ranked Park River boys bas- ketball team defeated Thompson 63-55. Cole Solseng led the Aggies with 13. Max Otto had 13 and Evan Koenig 10 to help the Aggies to a 10-1 record at that point of the season.

Track Recap: Aggie Girls finish 5th at State, boys 24th By Kevin Skavhaug of The Press PARK RIVER, N.D. -- The Park River-Fordville-Lankin Aggies girls track team finished in fifth place at this year&apos;s state high school track meet. Four girls accumulated all 44 points. "It would be great," said Aggie head girls track coach Angie Solseng, "if we could just get a few more girls out for track. I think we could be state champs if we had just a handful of the good girl athletes we have in school." But as it is, the few, the proud, the Aggies girls team came home with a fifth place finish at this year's state meet. The Aggies took seven high school girls to the meet as well as one eighth grader. Behind the two freshmen phe- noms -- Beatrice Kjelland and Elaina Swartz-- the Aggies proved that quality can make up for a shortage of quantity. Kjelland won the 100 and 200 meter dash and Swartz finished thrid in the 300 Me- ter Hurdles (46.07) and seventh in the 100 Meter Hurdles (16.61). The 400 Meter Relay team of Swartz, Julia Johnson, Hannah Swartz and Kjelland finished sec- ond with time of 50.71 seconds. "Our relay team came into state with the second best time behind a very strong Hazen team," said Solseng, "and after the prelims we knew it was going to be a fun final going against competition that was as strong as it was. I'm very proud they came home as the second best relay team in the State." "Individually of course," Solseng continued, "Beatrice and Elaina had a great state meet. They are both so strong and gifted runners and they performed so well; I'm really happy for them." Solseng was quick to point out that it was a total team effort. Solseng said, "As a whole, the team at state tied for an overall fifth place finish which is just an amaz- ing feat given that we only have sev- en members. Since our 4x400 relay team had qualified earlier in the year by time, we were able to take some Kjdland State Track Champion Wins 100 and 200 Meter Dash By Kevin Skavhaug of The Press PARK RIVER, N.D.- Two weeks ago on a mid, wet, windy morning, Beatrice Kjelland scurried from her school bus to the front doors of Park Riv- er Area High School. Carrying a heavily laden backpack in one arm and her jacket in the other, she scooted along, shivering against the cold, north wind, trying not to slip on the wet sidewalk. She covered the distance in ten seconds -- give or take. Judging from her expression, she didn't seem to be enjoying the short jaunt very well. Last Saturday at the state high school track meet however, she was enjoying her short little jaunts quite a bit more. Beatrice cov- ered distances up to ten times that far in much faster fashion. Faster in fact, than any Class B girl sprint- er has ever covered them. Beatrice not only won the state 100-meter dash, she set a new state record in the process. She actu- ally broke the old record twice; once in the prelim- inary round on Friday when she ran a 12.29 and then bested that with a blistering 12.26 sprint on Saturday. An hour or so after she did that, the freshman won the state title in the 200 meter dash in a time of 25.47 seconds. Despite her instant celebrity among those in at- tendance, Beatrice was completely nonchalant about it. Carter Arendt, a Park River senior who was com- peting in the meet as well, was at the finish line for both of Beatrice's races. "She is so relaxed," said able and slrong sprint to the finish line." Head coach Angle Solseng seconded that statement. "Beatrice re- ally nailed the starts," said Solseng, "a couple of the best starts out of the blocks she's had." Boys track coach Robert Gall has also been im- pressed with the performance of this young athlete. "There was a time that I thought I'd never see any- one beat Adriane's (Thomas) school records; until I saw Beatrice run this year. But if she wants to set a goal to be that good, she still has some work to do." Being in company of Adriane is good company in- deed. Thomas won the state 100 meter, 200 and 400 meter dash as a senior. But to anyone's knowledge, there has never been a Park River track athlete that has held a state record in any event, until Beatrice. And keep in mind, she has three more years of high school track. In the 200, Beatrice felt she led from start to fin- ish for the win. "I love starting in lane four, which is what I got in the 200," she added, "I like it when there are people on both sides of you pushing you to go faster." Hazen's Dakota Wood would prove to be her main challenge. "I think I started a little behind Dako- ta in the 100 but in the 2001 had a great start, ran the curve as fast as I have all year and then just pushed it hard right through the finish line". "I think that was my best overall race of the year." Wood, who was named senior athlete of the year in Class B girls Irack, finished second to Beatrice in both races. "Beatrice really handled the pressure well," said Arendt, "that winning those events seemed no more coach Angle Solseng, "and her only being a fresh- of a big deal than runnin a race at ,. .. is r:y,am,f  .! ;don't w  she , , sort of walked away without notice'a:er the race. - the magmtude oiwnatSne Ires just acc0mpllsneo, Arendt added however that "Beatrice is just crazy said Solseng, "being a state champion is a very spe- good!" Beatrice was also the anchor person on both the 400-meter relay and the 800-meter relays. Those two relay teams took second place with times of 50.71 sec- onds and 1:46.56 respectively. Key to Kjelland's performance in both races were her starts. Although she admits she has work to do on her starts, at state they went pretty well. "I had what I would call a great start out of the blocks in the 100," Beatrice said, "and from there I just had a comfort- cial thing and she did it twice this weekend." Now that the track season is over the speedster isn't planning on resting on her laurels. "I plan to do the sports acceleration program this summer, keep working on weights and also try the 400 next year if for no other reason than to work on my endurance. I might ever run a little bit this sum- mer, just for the fun of it." And for Beatrice, running is fun, as long as it takes place on days that are not cold and rainy. kids to fill in as alternates on that re- lay and with Katie Bohn going in javelin, we had all of the high school girls compete at the state meet which was such a special ex- perience. And then for them to all be able to stand up on the podium to get the fifth place trophy was re- ally extra special. They are such a hard working and dedicated group of girls. I can't wait to see what next year brings!" Aggie Boys Finish 24th at State Spencer Rehovsky was a force to be reckoned with on the offensive and defensive lines on this year's state championship football team. On Friday nights Rehovsky would have a field day tossing opposing lineman and running backs around like they were mini kids. Last Sat- urday the Park River junior was hav- ing another good field day, this time throwing javelins around at the state track meet. "Spencer had a super track sea- son," said head track coach Robert Gall, "culminating with great per- formances at regions and again at state." Rehovsky threw a personal best 167-feet which was good enough for a third place finish. Spencer was two feet short of second and seven feet short of the winning mark. "I was real pleased with a third place fmish," said Rehovksy, "I was ranked seventh coming in and to move up four spots at state was very satisfying." Rehovsky also commented on the closeness of the competition at state. "It gets to be a bit nerve racking becaus e at any time someone would throw three inches further than you and then you have to come up with another personal best to beat that." It worked out well for Rehovsky as i his sh got  toepodi for the deremoii. --<'' " ' Like the girls track team, the boys' team at PRFL is very low on numbers. There are a few kids who are dual sport spring athletes but even with that there just aren't enough boys competing to get the Aggies a solid team finish. Besides Rehovsky's third place finish, sophomore Cole Clemetson finished sixth in the shot put with a throw of 46' 1". "That's a pretty good finish for a sophomore," said coach Goll. The Aggies also qualified two re- lay teams, the 4x100 and 4x200 but neither placed in the meet.
