  • Sox make final push

    Nathan Price|Jul 22, 2024

    With only a few games left in the regular season, the New Rockford Post 30 Black Sox have been hard at work gaining momentum before the district tournament. After a solid start to the season, the Sox began to struggle and lost four of their next five games entering a matchup against Park River Post 147 in Fordville on Thursday, July 11. They had scored just two runs in those four losses, and entered that matchup desperately needing to get their bats going. Thankfully for Post 30, they did exactl...

  • District woes

    Nathan Price and Erik Gjovik|Jul 15, 2024

    After taking down Langdon in a thrilling come-from-behind victory, the New Rockford Post 30 Black Sox ran into a few more roadblocks on Tuesday, July 9. Up first was Carrington Post 25, and their pitcher Kael Kovar carried a shutout into the seventh inning, while their offense rode home runs from Grady Shipman and Josh Bickett to take a crucial District 4 win over New Rockford Post 30 at Carrington's City Park Tuesday, July 9. The Redbirds got single tallies in the first, third and fifth...

  • Post 30 stuns Red Sox in Langdon

    Nathan Price|Jul 15, 2024

    On Wednesday, July 3, the Post 30 Black Sox ended a two-game losing skid in the most emphatic way possible. Playing against the Langdon Red Sox in Langdon, Post 30 were looking to get back in the win column and develop some momentum as the postseason approaches. But as Wednesday's game got underway, the Black Sox certainly didn't do themselves many favors. With Keaton Cudworth on the mound, the Red Sox were able to score a run in each of the first two innings courtesy of an RBI single and a...

  • Post 30 takes loss to Rattlers, Babe Ruthers strike Thunder at home

    Nathan Price|Jul 8, 2024

    The Post 30 Black Sox suffered another setback on Thursday, June 27, this time against the Linton-Ashley-Wishek (LAW) Rattlers at home. Much of the struggle for Post 30 of late has been their defense. In their previous loss against LaMoure Post 19 on June 24, the Sox committed eight errors and allowed two unearned runs, spoiling what was a good pitching outing for Keaton Cudworth. Their very next game against LAW was a similar story: six defensive errors and five unearned runs allowed. Another...

  • Shrine Bowl super stars

    Jul 1, 2024

    Four players from the New Rockford-Sheyenne/Maddock Rockets took part in the 50th annual North Dakota Shrine Bowl on Saturday, June 22, in Mayville. Connor Knatterud, DJ Mudgett, Logan Maddock and Macyn Olson represented the Rockets after leading their team on an excellent season. They played for the 9-man east team along with many of the best players in 9-man North Dakota football. The four of them are the first Rockets to compete in the Shrine Bowl since 2021, when Johnny Grann and Hunter...

  • No luck for the Sox

    Nathan Price|Jul 1, 2024

    After their game against Harvey was suddenly postponed on Thursday, June 20, the Post 30 Black Sox had plenty of rest going into their next home game against LaMoure Post 19 on Monday, June 25. Unfortunately for the Sox, however, that extra rest did little to stop LaMoure's excellent pitching and strong defense from outperforming them. Starting on the mound for LaMoure was Owen Lesko, who went on to pitch all seven innings while allowing just three hits, one walk and striking out seven Black...

  • Comin' in clutch

    Nathan Price|Jun 24, 2024

    Keaton Cudworth has pitched another gem, this time throwing a complete game shutout against the Devils Lake B Storm on Monday, June 17. Not only did Cudworth prevent any runner from crossing the plate, he also allowed just a single hit and struck out 10 Devils Lake batters in seven innings. To state the obvious, it doesn't get much better than that, and Cudworth couldn't have picked a better day to remind everyone why he's among the best pitchers in Class B baseball. As Cudworth took care of...

  • State Golf

    Erik Gjovik|Jun 17, 2024

    The elements were the X-factor when the best golfers and teams in Class B converged at CrossRoads Golf Club in Carrington for two days of abbreviated action Wednesday and Thursday, June 5-6. A three-plus-inch downpour several hours before play was supposed to begin on Tuesday, June 4, postponed the entire first day of golf to Wednesday. The original plan was to play an 18-hole one day event that day, but flooding on the southern portion of the course shortened the round to just nine holes. With...

  • Batter up!

    Nathan Price|Jun 17, 2024

    Only days after the Sheyenne-New Rockford Black Sox took on the Class B baseball state tournament, most of the team were back on the diamond for the Legion baseball season. And the Post 30 Black Sox picked up where they left off, getting an impressive comeback win over the Kidder County Wolves on Thursday, June 6 in Steele. The Wolves jumped out to an early lead in the first inning thanks to an RBI double and a sacrifice fly. Keaton Cudworth was the starting pitcher for Post 30, but his first in...

  • Fourth at state

    Nathan Price|Jun 10, 2024

    The Sheyenne-New Rockford Black Sox have finished their spring season with a fourth place finish at their first state tournament appearance in 24 years. Many weren't sure how the Sox would fare after such a strong performance at the Region III Tournament, where they were largely dominant en route to a region championship. Were SNR really among the top eight teams in the state, or did they just happen to have a good few games that weekend? Well, they certainly answered that question with their...

  • Superior at state

    Kyrie Dauenhauer|Jun 3, 2024

    Nathan Price|May 27, 2024

    The Sheyenne-New Rockford Black Sox are region champions for the first time in over two decades! At the Region III Tournament in Steele, N.D., the Sox found themselves the last team standing after playing three days of excellent baseball, and have now punched their ticket to the state tournament in Jamestown. For all three days at the region tournament, the Sox put on an excellent display of pitching, offense and defense on the baseball diamond, and were largely dominant en route to their...

  • Schumacher to tee off at state golf

    Nathan Price|May 27, 2024

    Jackson Schumacher is going back to state. At the Region 2 qualifier in Carrington on Wednesday, May 23, NR-S sophomore Jackson Schumacher had his best meet of the season, and it couldn't have come at a more perfect time. To qualify for the state tournament, golfers need to score a 79 or better in 18 holes. Schumacher had come oh-so close earlier in the season when he scored 80 at Rose Creek on Wednesday, May 8. In Carrington, however, Schumacher wasn't interested in making it close. Instead of...

  • The slipper fits!

    Erik Gjovik|May 27, 2024

    With a few clutch hits, pitches and grit, the Carrington softball team advanced the furthest in the postseason they ever have in their three years of existence as a program. Starting from their inclusion in the South Sub-Region play-in game, the Cardinals went on to win a trio of games in the Region II Tournament, on the doorstep for State B Tournament qualification. The Cards rolled past #5 seed Larimore 23-3 at City Park to begin the tournament on Thursday, May 16, setting up a Saturday...

    Kyrie Dauenhauer|May 20, 2024

    Dang! This kid is on a roll! Which kid you may ask? We're talking about Fort Totten senior, Deng Deng.

    The Sheyenne-New Rockford Black Sox will enter the Region III tournament with momentum, having won two games in a row against the Loboes of LaMoure-Litchville/Marion and the Harvey/Wells County Hornets. First to fall were the Loboes, who hosted the Sox on Saturday, May 11 in LaMoure. On the mound for SNR was Keaton Cudworth, and for six innings on Saturday he and the defense behind him kept the Loboes from scoring a single run. Meanwhile, the Sox offense was steadily building a healthy...

  • Carrington defeats Larimore, H/WC

    Erik Gjovik|May 20, 2024

    Strong efforts in the final regular season softball games for the Carrington Cardinals put them in position for a few program firsts. On Thursday, May 9, the Cards trounced south sub-Region II opponent Larimore, 25-4, to earn a home postseason tournament matchup with those same Polar Bears this past Thursday.
