Old High School Rivalries

Recommended Posts

Kenmare Honkers, Carpio Cardinals, Donnybrook Hi-Liners, Tolley Tigers, Sherwood Wildcats, Lansford Cubs, Glenburn Panthers, and Mohall Yellowjackets. Only Kenmare, Glenburn, and Mohall survive today

Are the others co-ops now or did they simply close?

Old District 29 in Region 8:

Golva Tigers

Beach Buccaneers

Belfield Bantams

South Heart Eagles

New England Tigers

New England St Mary's Saints

Golva closed in the late 1980's/early 1990's...students now go to Beach. NESM closed sometime in the mid 1990's...Belfield and South Heart High Schools remain separate but co-op as the Heart River Cougars. Beach and New England remain.

Carpio, Donnybrook, and Tolley closed.  Mohall, Lansford, and Sherwood consolidated to form the M-L-S Mavericks, but I don't believe they use the schools in Lansford or Sherwood.

Maybe the oil boom out west will bring the "good old days" back?  That would be sweet.

 

It is saving school districts like Grenora and Alexander.   Williston District #8 might even build a high school.  They now have a K-8, and send the HS students to Williston (District 1).

I was in the area there around 5-10 years ago and incorrectly assumed that Alexander must have closed. I was surprised to see it still open.

Looks like Alexander will be one of the bigger Class B towns if things keep going:

Watford City just missed the Class A cutoff this year.  Their planning for 800 HS student now in a few years.

 Old district 32 in region 8:

 Bowman Bulldogs

 Rhame Pirates

Hettinger Black Devils

Scranton Miners

Regent Rangers

Mott Cardinals

Reeder Rockets

 

 The last year that this district existed was 1990. in 1991 the number of districts in the state was reduced to 24 and the New England Tigers and the New England St. Mary’s Saints were added to this group to form District 24.  I believe this district only existed for one year and the entire state reduced districts and restructured again in 1992

Some good memories from facing those schools...I remember Scranton fans storming the court after the Miners beat Belfield in the 86-87 season.  Coach Schroeder was less than pleased on the bus ride home.
