Pa e 8 THE WALSH COUNTY PRESS ° WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 29, 2017 By Kevin Skavhaug Black Friday, Cyber Monday .... Let the spending begin. So yes, by now many of you have gotten a good start on your Christmas shopping. I wish I could say the same but we still have plenty of time left. I won'¢ do the Black Friday thing any- more; tried it once and that was the end of that. But the question remains, who's on your gift list this year and what to get them? I can't speak for the women out there but here's some sug- gestiorLs for the men. Sportsmen (or sportswomen) in particular. You can never have too many fishing rod-- Ice or regular. It doesn't matter. If ice fishing is a passion, there are hundreds of nifty gadgets to make it more enjoyable• You know where to look• The shooting sports? This one gets a little trickier but like everything else, there are all kinds of neat little items de- signed to make those sports more convenient and enjoy- able. Does he have a Muzzle- loader?How about an electronic predator caller? If we switch gears a bit and wander down the road of fash- ion. Any true sportsman would love a new flannel shirt, long underwear, or wool socks. In- sulated jeans are pretty slick too. I suppose you can consider golfers "sportsman," despite the argument whether or not it's really a sport. But golf was de- signed for gift givers. Pretty much anything long or round or colorful fits the bill• Is he a truck guy, ATV guy or snowmobiler? The lines aren't too terribly long at the dealerships, so that's a big plus if you're short on time• Acces- sorize is the key here. If you're really in a bind, you can't go wrongwith a Carson Wentz jersey or at least an Ea- gles beanie. I suppose the same can be said for Adam Thielen or something purple. So let your giving begin. No matter what the passion, giving gifts to an outdoorsman is al- most a slam dunk. .... : - • ii:¸ L .~ • i:i iI Photos: larry Bid T0P Left: Keeping his eye on the puck, GratlorW Rk, er g0alie h ew l.ars0n n ke a big save aga The Spoilers fell to the Blue Jays 5-2 in Grafton The game was a lot d0ser than the score would indicate as the Blue Jays scored two empty net goals.

The Aggies will play New Town and Minot Ryan to open their season. The Aggies play in what is called the Super Region 2. Drayton/Valley-Edinburg Titans Last year the Aggies went 25-2 taking fifth at the state tour- ' The Titans will be big, strong and fast. Oh yeah, and ex- nament with a senior-laden team. This year's team can prob- ably be summed up with one word; young. Throw inex- perienced in there, too. Park River/Fordville-Lankin will have just one senior on their roster this year in Gretchen Brummond. Four jun- iors will hit the floor this year in Bailey Schroeder, Amy Seim, Sydney Beneda and Hannah Gordon• Sophomores will include Josie Brodina, Gigi Brouillard, Sydney Porter, Juli Sveen, Cheyenne Gillespie and Jaylie Woods• Scoring could be the Achilles heel for the Aggies this year. Athleticism will get them by on the defensive end of things but losing 99.9% of their scorers from last year will force the young Aggies to develop scoring in a hurry this year. If they can find enough inside and outside scoring, the Aggies could finish in the top five, otherwise look for the Aggies to finish in the middle of the* 13 team region. The Aggies are coached by Jon Berg and Danny Han- son. perienced. This could be the year the Titans explode with wins and if things fall their way, a finish that could begin with the letter O. Meaning One. But the Titans will have some heavy competition to go through first• We'll get to that later. The Titans finished 15-7 last year but like I mentioned, last year's team is back and another year older• Taylor Reil- ly, Taylor Stegman, Laiken Larson, and Amber Gemmill. Juniors will include Bailey Phelps and Lindsey iverson. Sophomores hitting the floor will be Maria Myrdal, Grace Kertz, Emily Reilly and Kaylee Pastorek. This team has been playing together since they were in fifth grade and know each other well. That team chemistry will mean a lot as the season progresses and the competi- tion heats up. Coached by Wayne Stegman (assisted by Guy Phelps and Kerri Stegman), the Titans will look to play up tempo but perhaps the strength of this team will be the game played inside the paint. With a pair of girls pushing 6' (Tay- lor Reilly and Laiken Larson) there won't be many teams that will match up inside very well. Rebounding and shot blocking will play a big part of the Titans defensive strengths this year. The question mark for this team as with all teams will be scoring. If the Titans can utilize and strong outside/in- side game on offense, there could be no stopping this team this season• Look for the Titans to finish 1, 2 or 3 with Grafton and Thompson joining the trifecta of Super Region 2 powers this season. : ReaCh all of North Dakota with I IYour classified ad will appear inal190 North Dakota daily and weekly newspapers • for only Callyour newspaper : f0rdetails HELP WANTED DIRECTOR OF STUDENT Serv- ices, Lake Region State College - Devils Lake, ND.
