North Dakota Girls A




4. Fargo Davies  

5.Fargo Shanley  

Bismarck Century took care of business on a recent trip to Wyoming beating Campbell Co WY 51-45, Rock Springs WY 58-47, and Pueblo South, CO 54-45.  Jordyn Jossart and Macy Lynch combined for 30 points in the final game on Saturday against Pueblo South. Bismarck moves up to number two with an early season win against Minot 77-63. West Fargo gave up 35 points to Sarah Jacobson but fought their way to a victory. Cassidy Thorson and Akealy Moton lead West Fargo in scoring. Fargo Davies looks like a contender after a 3-0 start, but their schedule ramps up with games against the Grand Forks schools, then South and Shanley. Fargo Shanley took an early season loss, Alivia Fraase fouled out of the West Fargo game and they still played the Packers tough. That loss set them back but the Deacons will be there this season.

North Dakota Girls B

1. Bishop Ryan
2. Thompson
3. Beach 
4. Shiloh Christian 
5. Maple Valley 


Bishop Ryan had the unfamiliar feeling of trailing at half time against Thompson, but they fought their way back to a 60-45 win in their opener. Thompson stays at number two despite that loss as they bounced back with a win against New Town (71-33) and then beating a tough Lakota-Edmore 46-40.
