Afterwards, Minot head coach Scott DeLorme was pleased with his club’s all-around in the seventh shutout win of the season.
“We went on the road and got a nice victory over a scrappy Bismarck High team,” DeLorme told The Minot Daily News. “Our top four continue to be very solid for us and are setting the tone for us early on. We also got solid efforts from Sienna Ronning and Sidney Ressler at 5 and 6. In addition, we know we have some depth as our junior varsity team improved to 4-0 on the year as well.”
Next on the schedule, Minot plans to host a tournament against multiple schools at Hammond Park on Friday starting at 9 a.m. The round-robin style tournament was originally scheduled for April 17.
