Fred Fox Jr., Chace Hale, Scotty Hale, Jeff Hall, Dewayne Howling Wolf and Savannah Crows Brest all won individual titles to propel the Parshall club its first-place finish among the eight teams competing. A total of 11 fighters out of the Bob Walsh Club competed against teams from Grafton, Minot, Mandan, New Town, Fort Yates, Spirit Lake and Grand Forks.
In addition to the team title, Fox, 8 years old, was presented with the most promising boxer award.
