In their final year of competing at the Class B level, Watford City’s boys and girls track teams went out on top as the Wolves claimed the region crowns in the Northwest Region Track Meet on Saturday in Minot.
For Greg Brown, girls head coach, it was a fantastic way for the Wolves girls team to wrap up their season as they head to state this next weekend in Bismarck.
“We had an excellent day on Saturday at the Northwest Regions,” stated Brown. “The girls ended up winning the meet, which gave us our 13th Region title in a row. It was also the first time in many years that we placed someone in all 19 events. It was an exciting day all over the track and field.”
And Watford City’s boys team also left its mark in their final appearance at the Northwest Region Meet as Braedon Gumke broke his own outdoor school record and region meet record with a vault of 13’9”. His previous outdoor school record was 13’7” and his previous region meet record from last year was 13’0”. He is a three-time Region Champion in the pole vault.
