The Beulah Cyclones seem to always struggle late in the legion season. The struggle tends to run from July to the end of the regular season. Last year the Cyclones were undefeated for most of the season until they dropped five games towards the end of the season. Two of the losses were to the Hazen Astros in Hazen.
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.
