Thanks for the coverage of the Drakes

On behalf of the Drakes of Blackduck, I would like to tip my cap to The Bemidji Pioneer and The (Blackduck) American for the wonderful coverage our high school baseball team received during our run to the Class A state tournament.

Writers Pat Miller and Jack Hittinger and photographer Monte Draper’s coverage of this big event in Blackduck was greatly appreciated by the players, coaches and fans alike.

A lot of hard work, effort and dedication was put forth by the players and coaching staff of the Drakes to achieve back to back state tournament trips.

It means a lot to all involved that The Pioneer and The American recognized those efforts and provided so much ink and column space to this historic event. You have helped preserve a marvelous and meaningful event for the school and community of Blackduck.

Go Drakes!

Dwight Kalvig

Head coach
