A new boxing club that has only been in operation five months proved that determination pays off when it nailed down a state title last weekend in Bismarck.
The Bob Walsh Boxing Club of Parshall took the team title over the Young Guns Boxing Club of Fort Yates and named six individual champions in the North Dakota State Golden Gloves Tournament.
Teams from Grand Forks, Spirit Lake Reservation, Fort Yates, Parshall, New Town, Mandan, Minot and Grafton competed in the two-day tournament that featured more than 100 fighters.
Fred Fox Jr., Chace Hale, Scotty Hale, Jeff Hall, Dewayne Howling Wolf and Savannah Crows Brest all won titles in their individual weight classes and Fox, 8 years old, was named most promising boxer.
Fox and Chace Hale both won at 65 pounds, Scotty Hale at 75 pounds, Hall won at 95 pounds, Howling Wolf took the title at 112 and Crows Brest was the state titlist at 150 pounds.
The Parshall club won a total of eight fights with Hall winning three individually.
Other fighters who competed for Parshall included Jaiven Hale, Amelio Thunder, Pete Deane, Daniel Hunt and Waylon Gardner.
