THREE FORKS — The Three Forks girls basketball team is no stranger to success, and it’s showing that this season. The Wolves finished third at the Class B state tournament in 2017 and are yet to lose a game this winter.

After a tight win in the closing moments on Saturday against then-unbeaten Townsend, the girls completed a sweep of their first round of District 5B tests. The Wolves have won their games by an average of 22 points, but that tight win was the biggest to-date.

“After beating everyone else in conference and then having this as our last game for the first round of conference play, it definitely puts a little bit of pressure (on us),” said guard Shainy Mack.

The handling of that pressure on the road made the win even more impressive.

With the win column growing and the loss column remaining at zero, that pressure will increase every time the girls take the floor.

“I’d say we have some pretty high expectations,” said guard Kyle Olson. “I know last week, we were ranked pretty high in the standings. We have a lot of pressure on our backs, but we can step up to it.”

The Wolves stepped up Saturday and look ready to step up again.
