    Erik Gjovik|May 20, 2024

    In this, her final season on the track as a Cardinal, Madison Johnson has come into her own and established herself as one of the program's legends. Now, it just remains to be seen if those blistering numbers on the stopwatch translate to individual or team glory at the state meet this upcoming Thursday-Saturday in Bismarck. Johnson broke the CHS 800-meter record with a 2:19.34 time at the HWC Invitational in Fessenden Saturday, May 11, the fourth time this spring that she has achieved the top...

    Erik Gjovik|May 13, 2024

    Madison Johnson's pursuit of the Carrington girls' track record books bore dividends for the third time this season. Johnson set a new mark in the 3,200-meter run at the Cards' home Kiwanis/Lions Track meet on Saturday, May 4, running an 11:30.05 time to surpass Ashley Neumiller's 2014 standard of 11:39.64.

  • Cards fall to L-L-M

    Erik Gjovik|May 13, 2024

The Cards fell behind to the...

    Erik Gjovik|May 6, 2024

    Quietly, the South Border Mustangs have inserted themselves into the conversation in the short list of Region 3 contenders one month into the high school baseball season. Wins over LaMoure/Litchville-Marion (11-8) on April 11 and Carrington (4-0) in the second part of the Cards' doubleheader with Langdon/Edmore/Munich on Thursday, April 25, means that the regional picture has become ever more muddied.
