The Beulah Miners had a short season with mostly unfavorable playing conditions. Both the girls and boys teams qualified for the state championship in rainy conditions at the regional championship but neither won a region championship.
The Miners looked poised to make a return to the state tournament after going through the regular season with one loss and no regional losses. At the regional tournament the Miners gave up one run and scored 18, least to say the reigning state champions dominance continued.
The Beulah Miners had a successful day at the Southwest Regional Track Meet. The Miners had some athletes qualify for the state meet and had several season best times from other athletes. Overall the long trip to Beach was well worth the trek for the Miners.
The Beulah Miners had a little bit of an unusual meet. Last week the Miners competed in two meets in the same facility. On May 7 Richardton-Taylor hosted a meet at the Henry Biesiot Activities Center, then on Saturday the Dickinson Town Crier meet was held there.
The boys and girls track teams were in two track meets last week. The Miners participated in the Badlands Conference meet and the New Salem Invite. The boys finished ninth at the New Salem Invite and fifth at the Badlands Conference meet. The girls finished 18th at New Salem and 13th at the Badlands Conference.
This year has been a frustrating game of hide and seek for local spring sports like baseball, track and golf. The sun and nice weather went into hiding, which made every spring coach and athlete go out to seek it on game day. The only problem was that the sun never showed any of its rays until the coaches and athletes went back inside.
