The Wolves (4-3, 3-0 5B) finished the 2023 portion of their schedule with conference wins over Jefferson, Ennis, and Townsend.
Head Coach Terry Hauser said it feels great to be 3-0 in conference play.
“We had some tough non-conference matchups with Fairfield, Malta, and Manhattan Christian, which are our three losses, but I told the kids it’s just to prepare us for conference play because right now that’s what matters, winning another conference title. We spoke a lot about being prepared as best as we could and working hard for when the conference started, and the kids and our coaching staff stepped up to the challenge,” he said.
The Wolves returned to practice on December 27 after a six-day break.
“I think it’s important to take time off, when possible, especially with an opportunity to spend time with family. I am excited and ready to go, hoping the kids are refreshed and ready to go. This next week and a half or so is critical to our growth. We need to be locked in and ready to improve. I have always said the break is time to separate yourselves and make that gap a little bigger between us and our opponents.”

“They are undefeated thus far, so it’s exciting to know they have to come to Three Forks, which we know isn’t an easy place to get a win, and we have a good chance to give them their first loss of the season,” Hauser said.
