The girls were tied with Mandan for third place but won the tie-breaker. Winning the top two trophies were Bismarck and Sidney. Other teams competing were from Dickinson, Minot, Miles City and Glendive.
In Level 4, Paige Inion once again did an excellent job, as she won both the uneven bars and the balance beam, out of 37 gymnasts, who competed on Saturday, Dec. 6. She was second for her all-around score, sixth on floor and was tied for 15th on vault.
EMG’s Level 3 gymnasts also did well in their individual events and competed in the second session of Level 3’s with 32 gymnasts.

The girls began their meet on vault where Ferdina was tied for second and Nagle was tied for tenth. On bars, Nagle was tied for third, Cheyenne Clinton was tied for eighth and Beery was tied for eleventh. The girls had some very nice beam routines, with Nagle tied for second, Ferdina at fifth and Beery at seventh. The girls finished their meet with some great floor routines which earned them the top team score on the floor, out of the eight teams. Beery led the way with her second place routine and was followed by Ferdina at third and Nagle at sixth. Kirsten Wagner continued to improve and had her best finish on the beam, where she was tied for 23rd.

The Lady Wolves sent the little terriers back to Glasgow with their tails between their legs with a 56-27 blowout win, Saturday, Jan. 17, putting the Wolf Point [4-1, 7-2] solidly in second place in District 2B.
The Wolves couldn’t erase the second half against the Scotties. Wolf Point played a close first half against Glasgow, leading at times, but ended up losing 61-44. The Wolves are now 4-1, 6-3, and remain in second place behind undefeated Glasgow.
The Wolves won 45-29 at Plentywood, Friday, Jan. 16. The Lady Wolves beat Plentywood 54-45.
Lady Wolves 56, Glasgow 27
The Lady Wolves controlled all four quarters, leading 7-4 at the end of the first stanza and 22-9 at halftime. Wolf Point scored seven unanswered points before Glasgow finally got on the board with two point with just 1:25 remaining in the first quarter. Glasgow did not score in the second quarter until the final minute of clock time.
After half time, the Lady Wolves scored 19 third-quarter points to just 11 by Glasgow. The fourth quarter scoring was 15-7.
“I’d say, definitely, that’s the best game we have played,” head coach Jeff Neubauer said.
“It was a great win. I’m really happy. That’s the thing I’ve been looking for,” he said.
Neubauer said despite the 54-45 win at Plentywood, each team shot 34 of 68 from the free throw line.
“It’s hard to get into rhythm,” he said.
“As a coach, you hope things will come like that and they did tonight,” Neubauer said.
Emma [Gourneau] is doing really well. Jessica [Bauer] had a great game,” he said.
Gourneau posted a game-high 16 points against Glasgow. Shelby Hanks registered 10 points and Bauer recorded 9.
No Glasgow player scored over six points.
“My role is scoring and being a leader as a senior,” Gourneau said.
“I was expecting to win by 20 at Plentywood,” she said.
“We played really good,” Gourneau said.
“I thought we’re playing a lot more as a team together,” Hanks said.
“Our run and jump is coming together as a team,” she said.
Glasgow 61, Wolves 44
The Wolves held several leads during the first two periods, trailed the Scotties by just two points at the first quarter break and were tied 20-20 at halftime.
That was as good as it was going to get for the Wolves as the tempo shifted in Glasgow’s favor after the intermission. The Scotties held a 9-point lead at the final quarter break, led by as much as 20 points in the fourth quarter and won by 17.
Tyson Bridges led the Wolves, posting 15 points.
Glasgow’s Jake Kolstad led with a game-high 16 points.
Head coach Kelly Nieskens said the Wolves hit a stall offensively in the third quarter.
He also cited the Scotties defense that held Bridges to just 15 points.
“That what teams will do. They’ll start keying on Tyson,” Nieskens said.
He said he’s looking for some better outcomes from upcoming games.
The Wolves played at Sidney Tuesday, Jan. 20, and the Lady Wolves hosted Sidney. Those games were played after The Herald-News went to press. WPHS hosts Poplar, Friday, Jan. 23 and Harlem, Saturday, Jan. 24. Varsity games will be at 6 and 7:30 p.m.

The Wolf Point Junior High girls beat Plentywood and Glasgow at the Poplar jamboree, Saturday, Dec. 6.
WP 41, Plentywood 22
The Lady Wolves led 16-13 at the half and beat Plentywood 41-22.
Hailey Brunelle led the attack, notching 14 points, followed by Imani Bighorn, 8, Semarah Wells, 6, Alyssa Archdale, 5, and Mary Bighorn, Laresa Dale, Cheryl Eagle and Abby Juve, 2 points each.
WP 42, Glasgow 12
The Lady Wolves also put the Scotties in the doghouse with a 42-12 win. Wolf Point led 21-9 at the half and held Glasgow to just three second half points.
Hailey Brunelle recorded a team-high 12 points and Bighorn registered 10. The remainder of Wolf Point scoring was Kassie Kirkaldie, 6, Juve, 4, Archdale and Eagle, 3 each, and Dale and Wells, 2 each.
Coach Melissa Cromwell credited Brunelle as the top offensive player with 28 total points and Wells as the top defensive player with four steals.
Bighorn led nine rebounds and Sky Johnstone had six. Eagle recorded six assists and Wells four steals.
“A slow start for the Wolves in game one vs. the Wildcats. We were not executing on the offensive end and the Wildcats seemed to score on all of their offensive plays. We were close at the half with just a three-point difference. After regrouping at halftime the girls exploded for a big 25 points while running a better offense. Cheryl Eagle and Hailey Brunelle teamed up for several quick buckets from some great passing from Eagle. We continue to work on better blocking out,” Cromwell said.
“In game two, the Wolves dominated from buzzer to buzzer. We held the Scotties to just 12 total points with some very hard fought defense. The girls worked hard with many of them hitting the floor to scramble for a lose ball. We shot four for six from the line but sent the Scotties to the line 15 times. We need to work on moving our feet and not reaching so much,” she said.
The Wolf Point girls wrap up their season in Plentywood, Saturday, Dec. 13.
