After a perfect season ended with a state championship, Cavalier has placed four players on the North Dakota 9-man high school all-state football team.
Cavalier, which went 11-0, landed Ryan Chrest at defensive back, Jeff Stith at offensive line and Brock Robbins at running back on the first team and lineman Justin Gibson on the second team.
For the second straight week, Noah Krebs was in the right place at the right time. Krebs delivered a booming tackle on a two-point conversion to preserve Bismarck St. Mary’s 24-22 North Dakota Class 2A state championship win over Wahpeton during Friday’s Dakota Bowl at the Fargodome.

They call themselves the Tornadoes. Little wonder the Cavalier football team plays well in high winds. Playing in strong northwesterly winds of 22 mph gusting to 32, Cavalier delivered a knockout blow to Napoleon-Gackle-Streeter.
Trevor Haugo is making up for lost time. In his second game back in the lineup Saturday, the senior was a workhorse as the Indians beat Upsala-Swanville 28-12 in the quarterfinals of the Minnesota Class A high school football playoffs.
