FAIRBANKS, Alaska (KTVF) - The Monroe Catholic Rams are in their second season since being elevated to 4A in Mid Alaska Conference. The Rams began conference play of the 2022-23 visiting the West Valley Wolfpack.

Stewart Erhart led the way for West Valley scoring 22 points. The reigning Alaska Gatorade Player of the Year dropped 10 of those 22 in the third quarter. Erhart was the only West Valley player to score double figures. Gannon Young was the second-highest scorer with nine.

The Wolfpack defense seemingly suffocated the Rams offense. Only four Rams members recorded points. Jett McCullough led Monroe with 13.

After West Valley’s 57-54 overtime loss to Dimond, the Wolfpack have returned to their winning ways with back to back double digit wins.

“I feel like we’ve responded great,” Erhart stated after suffering their only loss of the season. “I feel like we got exposed on some things, and we’re working on that every day at practice. We work hard every day, and we’re trying to make those weaknesses into strengths for state.”

The Rams will go for their first conference win, Friday, at Lathrop. The Wolfpack will have some significant time off before their next game, February 10th, hosting Thunder Mountain.
