The Watford City Wolves girls basketball team is eager for another season. This will be their fifth with Tom Dwyer as head coach and their fifth in Class A. Coach Dwyer said, “I have a big checklist for the first two weeks and we never get to spend enough time doing every little thing that we want to do. We need a lot of fundamental work, especially with our freshmen. Fundamentals and working on certain plays right now are the main focus in our first two weeks of practice.”
The Wolves have a young roster this year. There are two seniors, Gracen Breitbach and Audrey Fowler; two juniors, Jessica Mogen and Jordyn Pedersen; everyone else on the roster is a sophomore or younger. The Wolves have a lot of familiar faces on this year’s team, but they will definitely miss Madison Spacher. She is now a freshman at Valley City State and is already averaging 14 minutes and five points per game. Adi Schaff and Bailey Mattson both played significant minutes last year and will be asked to play an even bigger role this year.
