Several Wolves’ football players are All-State and All-Conference selections for the 2014 season.
The recent season was the best Wolf Point football season in several years.
The Wolves finished the season in third-place in the Northern 2B district with a 2-2 conference record and 4-5 overall. There were several previous dismal seasons with 1-7 finishes in 2012 and 2013.
Three of the 2014 losses were to Northern 2B rival Glasgow, which went undefeated until the third round of the playoffs, and non-conference losses to powerhouses Baker and Forsyth.
Freshman Jeremiah Paine made school history as the first Wolf Point player to be voted All Conference as a freshman. He made second team kicker for Special Teams All-Conference.
Senior Cameron Quincy is the first Wolf Point player in 14 years to earn All-State accolades.
Named All-Conference offense and defense both were: Tyson Bridges, senior, first team wide receiver [unanimous selection] and first team defensive end; David Knerr III, junior, second team running back and first team linebacker [unanimous selection]; and Quincy, first team offensive line, first team defensive tackle [both selections were unanimous].
Named All-Conference offense: Dalton Hafner, senior, second team quarterback; and Austyn Juve, junior, second team offensive line.
Named All-Conference defense: Aaron D’Ambrosio, senior, second team defensive back; and Ty Nygard, sophomore, second team defensive tackle.
Quincy is a three-year all conference player, Bridges and Knerr are two-year all conference players.
Quincy and Bridges were both selected to play in the Class B All-Star game in Billings in June and Hafner and D’Ambrosio were selected as alternates.
Unanimous selections are players who receive a first place vote from all of the head coaches from the other conference teams.
“The Wolves earned 11 spots on the all-league team and five of the positions are underclassmen, so it will give the Wolves a good nucleus for next season,” head coach Bruce Knerr said.

Wolf Point led Poplar 27-2 at the half and won 54-10.
Alyssa Archdale and Hailey Brunelle led Wolf Point scoring with 11 and 10 points respectively. Other Lady Wolves were: Imani Bighorn, 9, Cheryl Eagle, 6, Semarah Wells, 6,  Mary Bighorn, 4, Abby Juve, 4, Kassie Kirkaldie, 2, Laressa Dale, 2.
WPJH 40, Plentywood 21
Wolf Point led Plentywood 22-8 at the half and won 40-21.
Archdale led Wolf Point with 8 points, followed by Mary Bighorn with 7, Brunelle, 6, Imani Bighorn, 6, Wells, 4, Dale, 3, Kirkal-die, 2, Eagle, 2, and Paisley Ferdina, 2.
Wolf Point coach Melissa Cromwell said Wells was the top offensive player and Imani Bighorn was the top defensive player with seven blocked shots and four rebounds. Mary Bighorn had three rebounds. Wells had three assists and Archdale five steals.
“The girls did a great job controlling their offense against the Poplar squad. We had a ton of opportunities to get set up and pass and reverse pass before attacking the basket,” Cromwell said.
“The Wildcats came out battling hard and put a full-court press on us mid-quarter. The girls did not adjust well and gave up several baskets off of Plentywood steals. A quick timeout and some reminders on press breaker and we were back in the game. The girls never looked back keeping up an intense half court defense and holding the Wildcats to 21 points,” she said.
The next jamboree will be at Poplar Saturday, Dec. 6.
