When the Going Gets Tough, the Tough Get Going

The timeless Billy Ocean classic "When the Going Gets Tough, the Tough Get Going" was a perfect song choice for this week as only the toughest in the state survive region playoffs, which went on this past week.

Two Bottineau golfers, one boy (Zack Monson), and one girl (Ashley Blue) made it to their respective state tournaments. The Bottineau Braves baseball team is one win away from making it to state and the track and field team is sending 11 athletes down to state in Bismarck this weekend.

It is sure to be an exciting next couple of weeks.

As for pictures this week I have several from region golf in Rugby last Thursday, as well as a few from the Bottineau/Bishop Ryan game on May 14.

Just as an aside for all those who are fans of either the Thunder thugs or Lebron's Heat, there is no chance that the Spurs don't win the title this year. They are playing far too well and are too deep a team to not win the title this year.

As for the NHL playoffs I'm cheering for the Rangers, but if I were to put money on it I'd probably take the Kings.

Pictures this week:

Bottineau senior Justin McCloud hurls a pitch toward home last Monday against Bishop Ryan.
