Records are meant to be broken. Everyone has heard that statement but few have actually enjoyed breaking it. The 2012 Hazen Bison football team enjoyed breaking seven Dakota bowl records during their Class A state championship victory.
Time is a hard thing to manage; It’s always with or against us. In last year’s state Class A semifinal game, time was against the Bison when they fell by one point to the Stanley Bluejays. Father time was on Hazen’s side in this year’s Class A state semifinal game.
Briar Bornemann will never be the biggest player on a football field but he will always attract attention. Despite the attention Lewis and Clark gave Bornemann he still maneuvered for five touchdowns in Hazen’s Class A opening round playoff win.
The announcer of the Glen Ullin and Hazen volleyball game made birthday announcements to two crowd members in the stands. But even birthday wishes failed to lift the Bison to victory in the Oct. 2 match. The Bison were swept in three closely contested sets.
A rivalry game is supposed to have it all: close calls, high intensity, and of course fully invested fans. The Beulah Miners and Hazen Bison battled in a good ole’ fashion Coal Country volleyball rivalry showdown. Hazen won the first battle in this year’s war.
