The Culbertson Oilers finished the 2014 Babe Ruth baseball season at the Hi-Line District Tournament Friday through Sunday, June 20-22, at Burke Field in Wolf Point.
The six-team, double-elimination tournament included Culbertson and teams from Wolf Point, Scobey, Plentywood and two from Glasgow.

Culbertson lost to Plentywood 10-9 Friday, in a game where the Oilers had led early in the game and lost in the seventh inning, and to Glasgow Coke 13-3 in the losers bracket.
“We struggled with pitching and too many errors,” Culbertson head coach Gordon Oelkers said.
“We’re a young team,” he said.
“[This season is] the first time we have had Babe Ruth in three years. It was a learning experience for the kids,” Oelkers said.
“On every level, it comes down to pitching,” he said.
Culbertson finishes the season with four 15-year-olds, who will be ineligible to play next year due to age limits.

Chadwick Fun Run/Walk Held


The Chadwick Strong Fun Run/Walk was a huge success. About 150 friends and family joined to support the Chadwick family.
Following the walk, family and friends all gathered at the Froid Community Center for a barbecue.
The Chadwick family was very appreciative and touched by the support of this community that they called “home” for nearly five years.
The efforts are appreciated of all who donated time, food, supplies and money to make this event possible. We could not have done this without the support of the community and local and area businesses.
T-shirts and wrist bands are still available by texting Andrea at 765-7920.
