Wolves’ Runner Birdhat Earns Cross Country, Track Scholarship

Wolf Point High School cross country and track distance runner Christian “Chris” Birdhat signed a letter of intent earlier this month for an athletic scholarship to the Minot State University Track And Field Program.

Birdhat, a 2020 WPHS graduate, will further his running at MSU while majoring in entrepreneurship.

“I’d like to thank my [WPHS cross country] coach, John Wetsit, for believing in me and pushing me to train harder and be mentally tougher,” he said.

Birdhat finished 12th at the Poplar invitational cross country meet in 2019 and finished 102nd in the Class B state cross country meet in October 2019.

The MSU Beavers are a NCAA Division II program.

Birdhat will work with MSU coach Mark Del Monaco.
