Dan Carr of Linton took teams to State 11 times in his first 32 years (1981-87; 1989-2014) at Linton, which is over 34% of the time.
Linton won back-to-back State titles the first two times (1984 and 1985), and another in 2009. Linton placed 2nd in 1987, 7th in 1994, 5th in 2003, 3rd in 2004, 5th in 2005, 7th in 2011 and 2012, and 4th in 2014.
His record at Linton is 684-195 (.778) in 35 years, and his teams have made the region tournament in 34 of the 35 years he has been there (1998-99 was the only exception).
He needs five more wins to pass Coach Beyer on the all-time victory list for North Dakota, but Carr coached three years in Minnesota and has 720 victories overall.

I figured Carr was right in there too....sounds like he looked up to Eddie....Carr grew up in Mayville ND

Published 1:26 p.m. CT Jan. 11, 2016 | Updated 6:24 p.m. CT Jan. 11, 2016

The North Dakota high school basketball community has lost a legend.

Eddie Beyer, longtime Hillsboro coach, died Sunday night at a hospital in Fargo. He was 77.

Beyer retired from coaching in 1997 after 37 years at the Burros’ helm. His 688 career wins stood as a state record until Linton-HMB’s own hall of fame coach, Dan Carr, surpassed the mark last week.

“I always considered him a good friend and mentor. He was the standard-bearer for all of us younger coaches — the role model,” Carr said. “If Eddie Beyer did it, everybody else was going to do it. Tried to emulate everything he did.”

Carr grew up Mayville, N.D., 20 minutes northwest of Hillsboro, and was thusly familiar with Beyer — who had established himself in the 1970s first as a winner but also as a snappy dresser.

“Very flamboyant dresser,” Carr said, “He’d have a white belt and white shoes in the ‘70s, with maybe a bright sport coat to go with them.”

Beyer also left an imprint on the court with a style known as the “delay game” — where his offenses would hold onto late-game leads by protecting the ball and milking clock.


Before North Dakota adopted the shot clock in 2012, Beyer’s “delay game” — or some variation of it — was as much a part of the coaching toolkit as the full-court press. For good reason, as Beyer’s teams won state titles in 1973-74, ’77 and ’81. The final crown capped an undefeated season.

“They weren’t very popular because they were good,” Carr said. “Often times people cheered against them because they were.”

One of Beyer’s star players from the Burros’ championship team in ’77 was Dave Nelson, who in short order would become the legendary coach’s son-in-law. Dave Nelson later established himself as a premier coach, but for rival co-op Mayville-Portland-Clifford-Galesburg. Beyer traded in Burro blue and white for Mayville red.

Basketball had become a full-on family affair, with Beyer as the patriarch. Beyer’s grandson, Craig Nelson (Dave’s son), was also an accomplished player and went on to a successful career under Don Meyer at Northern State in Aberdeen.

With Dave as coach and Craig at point guard, the Nelsons won state titles in 2002-03. Craig Nelson unsurprisingly joined the coaching ranks after college, and appears to be cut from the same mold. Last year, Nelson led Sioux Falls Washington to an 18-2 regular season mark and runner-up finish at the state tournament.

“Nobody who ever knew Ed or knew of his teams will ever forget him,” Carr said.

Beyer was inducted into the North Dakota Sports Hall of Fame in 2012. The Appleton, Minn., native earned 11 varsity letters in football, basketball and baseball from Concordia-Moorhead, where he graduated in 1960.

That article must have confused some information. Dan Carr is a native of Verndale, Minn., and graduated from high school there. He went to Mayville State in the mid-70’s, and that is probably where he encountered Coach Beyer.

Carr and Beyer’s teams met just one time on the court. That was in the semi-finals of the 1984 State Tournament when #1 Hillsboro (25-0) and #2 Linton (25-0) squared off. Linton won the game, 45-41, and went on to capture its first state title.

Before that, the only time Beyer played Linton was in the third place game of the 1980 State Tournament. Both teams came into the tournament undefeated at 26-0, but Linton lost to Berthold, 51-38, and Hillsboro lost to New Town, 46-44 in ot, in the semi-finals. Linton won the third place game, 49-44. Ironically, Del Kessler was the head coach at Linton that year, and he coached one more season at Linton before he moved on to coach at Mayville-Portland after the 1981 season. Kessler and Beyer would meet at least twice annually over the next 16 seasons until Beyer retired in 1997. Kessler’s 1983 Mayville-Portland team took second (to Hettinger) in the 1983 State Tournament, but his teams would win State titles in 1987, 1996 and 1997.

Carr took over for Kessler before the 1981-82 season, and the only time they ever faced each other was in the 1987 State Tournament title game, where Mayville-Portland defeated Linton, 72-61. Carr took a leave of absence to earn his Masters degree at NDSU for the 1987-88 season, but he returned to Linton in the fall of 1988 and has coached there ever since.

1968: Casselton, Wolford, Hillsboro, New England St. Mary's, Underwood, Langdon, Kenmare,


Yes I believe that run was just prior to the influx of people connected with the missile site being built in Nekoma. The 66 and 67 teams were led by coach Ken Towers who would later go on to coach at GF Red River. I am not sure if he was still in Langdon in 68. A couple of key players on the 66 and 67 teams were Kent Krom, whom I believe was a first team all-stater in 67 (back when All State was combined A and B) and Gene Manson who went on to a very successful coaching career, most notably at Minot High with stops in St. Thomas and Devils Lake along the way I believe. Interestingly he is still on the bench as an assistant for his son Bart at Fargo Davies. Also on 66 and 67 teams was Dennis Throndset who coached the Langdon girls to a 6 consecutive state class A girls tournament appearances from 74-79.

I met Ken Towers before (Italian moon GF ND)....played for Alsen on some Class C Championship teams with the Herbels in the 50's I believe...
didn't know Gene was in Langdon...I knew of his teaching coaching in St. Thomas

also some very good History/trivia :)

Hillsboro was not unbeaten coming into the 1980 State Tournament. They came into that tournament with a 24-1 record. Otherwise great info!

I believe the '57 and '58 Alsen state championship trophies are displayed at the Italian Moon. Those teams both went 34-0 and were part of the state record 79-game winning streak. The only other Class C team to go undefeated in a season was 27-0 Mapleton in 1963.

Wilbur wrote:Whoever asked the question which teams went into the championship game undefeated and lost. Off the top of my head, Newburg lost to Linton in both 1984 and 1985, Grenora lost to Carrington in 1995, Dickinson Trinity lost to Leeds in 1999, North Star lost to Beulah in 2012. The following are a guess, so someone correct me if they are wrong: Cando in 2001, Mayville-Portland/C-G in 2006, Rugby in 2014.

The teams I can think of that lost their first game in the Region final were LaMoure (Fullerton) in 1975, Glen Ullin (Belfield) and Page (Oak Grove) in 1986, North Star (Carrington) in 2010 and St. John (FW/M) in 2017.

Another question would be how many teams suffered their first loss of the season in the opening round at State. Again, off the top of my head, New Town (Hillsboro) in 1981, Beulah (Hillsboro) and Lankin-Adams (Glen Ullin) in 1984, Glen Ullin (Mayville-Portland) and Dunseith (Leeds) in 1987, Watford City (Munich) in 1992, Litchville-Marion-Montpelier (Minot Bishop Ryan) in 2000, New Rockford-Sheyenne (Dickinson Trinity) in 2004, Pingree-Buchanan-Kensal (Mayville-Portland) in 2006, and Central Cass (Beulah) in 2012.


LaMoure went 23-2 in 1975 so the region championship game was not their first loss: Other schools that I can think of that lost their first game in the region final:

Page (1988): The year after Brian Buhr graduated. Lost by one to Hankinson in the regional final on a late free throw by Dean Lingen. Lingen tragically died in a car accident that following summer. With the 1986 Panthers losing to Oak Grove, that was two unbeaten Page teams in three years that lost a region championship game by a single point. They did reach state in 1987 however, finishing 3rd.

Ray (1988): Lost to Divide County by 1 on a long three pointer at the buzzer. This was an epic game between two talented teams. Monty Lund and Jerys Enget from Ray were an outstanding backcourt and I believe both went on to play at Minot State.

Hankinson (1989): Lost 64-60 to Cass Valley North in the Region 1 title game.

May-Port in 1989 lost its first game in the region semifinals 59-47 to Northwood. The next night Hillsboro beat Northwood 45-44 to reach the state tournament. May-Port had beaten Hillsboro three times by double figures in the regular season and district tournament that year. This was current Northern Iowa head coach Ben Jacobson's senior year with the Patriots.

Beulah (2013): lost to Dickinson Trinity in the region final, ending a 39-game winning streak.

A few more teams that were unbeaten and lost in the first round of the state tournament:

Jud (1969 and 1970): The Trojans came into the tournament unbeaten both years, but lost their first two games at state both years as well.

Richardton (1973): Lost to eventual state champion Hillsboro 52-49. Richardton finished 28-1 that season.

McClusky (1974): Lost to Zeeland 49-48 in the first round and then lost 52-50 to Richardton in the consolation bracket.

A team I have seen missing from the list of those that lost their first game in the state championship was New Town in 1976. Finished the year 28-1 after losing to LaMoure.

A few interesting Class B trivia questions:

What year did 7 of the 8 region champions fail to win their district tournaments?

What year were the semifinalists at the state tournament the 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th ranked teams?

There was a Class B team that entered the district tournament two years in a row with a 17-1 record and failed to make the region tournament both years. Name the team and years.

B Historian, I guess my memory failed me. I thought Linton and Hillsboro were the only unbeaten teams who entered the 1980 State Tournament. Do you know who they lost to before the State Tournament? I know Linton was unbeaten, and New Town and Berthold each had one loss, as did Hillsboro. So that will be my answer to your second question. I think New Town, Berthold, Linton and Hillsboro were the top four teams in the final rankings, but I can’t remember the order of ranking, even though I believe Berthold was ranked number one. Berthold beat Glenfield-Sutton, Linton beat Edmore, New Town beat Oakes and Hillsboro beat Belfield in the opening round.

On the LaMoure 1975 team that I stated was unbeaten coming into the Region I championship. I was corrected on that, too. That was before my time, but I thought I had seen that on a special on the Class B Tournament a few years ago. When they were talking about LaMoure’s 1976 team, I thought they said that they were unbeaten until the 1975 Region I Championship Game, but I must have mistaken that for the fact that they simply lost in the 1975 region finals.

This one is interesting to me. Would love to know the answer.

Was the team that entered districts with only one loss two years in a row Hillsboro? I know they were one of the top teams in 98 and they didn't make regions.

Hillsboro was 17-1 in both '82 and '83 and lost in the semifinals of the district tournament both years. Hillsboro was also 19-0 in '85 when they lost the district championship game to Mayville-Portland.

Good call! 1980 was the year that the four semifinalists were the top four ranked teams. Berthold, Hillsboro, Linton and New Town were ranked in that order.

after they beat Epping in 1977 everybody knew Hillsboro
Good stuff B historian!

in 82 Crosby Divide won State
in 83 Henninger won State

who beat hillsboro in the semis at districts? and what district and Region was it then?

I have three questions for this post. Should be pretty easy for any Class B guru.

1. What school has the most State Class B Tournament appearances, including whether or not they were part of a co-op?

2. Which school has the most State Class B Tournament appearances WITHOUT a co-op?

3. Which is the only school to qualify for the State Class B Tournament (with or without a co-op) at least once in each decade since the first State Class B Tournament in 1932-33?

I believe Linton would be the answer to both number 1 and 2 because they had more appearances when they were not combined then Kenmare.

1. Linton
2. Kenmare
3. I'll say Beulah, even though I don't think they went in the 60's or 2000's

Good call! 1980 was the year that the four semifinalists were the top four ranked teams. Berthold, Hillsboro, Linton and New Town were ranked in that order.


Some names I recall from those teams. I think most were juniors in '80:
Berthold - Jim Royce. Hillsboro - Kyle Meyer, Bob Beach, Chris Vettel, Stewart? Linton - Brian Ternes? New Town - Perry White Owl, Val Finley.

Those were my same answers for the first two, but I'm going with Mayville for the last one.

Some players I remember (I was pretty young) from the 1980 semi-final teams were Val Finley and Perry White Owl of New Town; Steve Hall, Bruce DeBilt, Kerry Ulberg and Jim Roise of Berthold; Lenny Ohlhauser, Brian Sauter, Rich Deis and Bryan Ternes of Linton; and Kyle Meyer, Chris Vettel, Bob Beach and Jim Haugen of Hillsboro.

I think it was 1984 state tournament that had at least 4 unbeaten teams starting the state tournament. But I don't remember how that state tournament went other than Linton won the state.
