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.

Lady Wolves Down Glasgow, Plentywood At Poplar

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.
