Watford City’s varsity track team came up just a little short on the scoreboard as the Wolves took second place at the Northwest Conference Indoor Track Meet last Tuesday in Minot.
The Wolves ended the meet with 120 points to trail New Town, which won the meet with 128 points. Des Lacs-Burlington/Lewis & Clark took third with 105 points, while Trenton-Trinity Christian was fourth with 62.  Also competing was Glenburn, fifth, 57; Mohall-Lansford-Sherwood, sixth, 23; Stanley-Powers Lake and Surrey, tie for seventh, 19.
“We ended up a little short on the team points,” stated Dave Gumke, Wolves’ head coach. “We were missing a few individuals that would have helped us score enough to win the meet, but the guys that were there performed very well. This meet gives us an idea of where we stand in the region.”
