Wolves are state tournament bound

Appearing at the State Class B Girls Softball Tournament has become a tradition for the Watford City Wolves softball team. The Wolves, who have made it to State the last five years, will be making their sixth, and final, journey to the “Big Show” this week as they prepare to leave the ranks of Class B girls fastpitch softball.
Watford City made its first trip to the state tournament in 2013, the first year that the Wolves had a girls high school softball team, where they finished in eighth place. The Wolves would take eighth place in their return trips to State in 2014 and 2015 before taking fifth place in 2016.
In 2017, the Wolves took fourth at State.
“It is was a huge win for us to beat Wilton-Wing in the state qualifying game in the West Region Tournament,” stated Devin Langerud, who has coached the Wolves since their inception. “Making it back to State in our final year of playing Class B softball means a lot to me and to our team.”
But Watford City’s final trip to State was anything but easy this year.
