Regional track is what most teams gear their season around. Most teams hope to get to the regional meet and place a few athletes in the state meet. For Hazen and Carrington the only goal is to top each other in total points at the end of the meet.
The Hazen girls track team continues to compete at a high level. Last week the Bison participated in two meets placing first in the Badlands Conference meet and second in the New Salem Invite. The Bison had 27 varsity placers in the meets combined and five JV placers.
Delays are annoying. No one likes to be told stop and wait untill things get better. For the Bison all of the waiting paid off with a successful day. The Bison boys’ track team took first place at the Sakakawea Country Classic and the girls team took second place.
At the region tournament the Hazen Bison girls basketball team faced three teams that they had lost to before the region tournament started. The Bison gained a small nugget of retribution in the first round of the Region 7 tournament but couldn’t end their season with retribution victories over Beach and Bowman County.
The Hazen Bison girls’ basketball team accomplished the easy part of their basketball goal, earning a Region 7 tournament birth, but found themselves sitting when the district championship was supposed to be played on Monday evening. Their District 14 championship game against Dickinson Trinity was delayed until Tuesday because of inclement weather.
