Headline Story: KANSAS CITY, Kan. — The Kansas City Monarchs were crowned kings of American Association baseball Monday night at Legends Field.
Kansas City scored the game’s first three runs and got a stellar start from right-hander Keyvius Sampson. The Monarchs used that combination to score an 8-1 victory against the Fargo-Moorhead RedHawks in Game 3 of the league’s championships series. The game’s start was delayed nearly 70 minutes due to rain.
Kansas City earned a 3-0 sweep in the best-of-5 championship series. The Monarchs won all six of their playoff games to cruise to the American Association title. They had a 69-31 record in the regular season that was tops in the league. The RedHawks were trying to win their first league championship since a Northern League title in 2010, and their first American Association crown.

The high school football season is moving in full swing as September begins to reach its end.
What hasn’t reached its end is Langdon Area-Edmore-Munich’s dominance. On Friday, the Cardinals extended their winning streak to 43 games in a row, and a big reason why was the play of Carter Tetrault. The junior running back collected 206 yards of total offense and scored four times against Thompson, helping Langdon cruised to a 38-18 win.
