The Valley City State University cross-country and track & field teams are getting a new coach, and one with plenty of NCAA Division I experience no less.
Ken Frenette, who spent 23 years coaching the mens and womens cross country teams Campbell University in Buies Creek, N.C., was named the Vikings' new head coach in a release Friday.
Entering this season, Maple Valley High School girls basketball coach Jeff Miller was cautiously optimistic.
"I knew we'd be better than last year and I knew we'd be able to surprise some teams," Miller said. "I thought we would maybe get off to a slower start and then start picking it up at the end of the year once they started playing together."
But after beating Griggs County Central 54-31 Tuesday, "better than last year" is a goal the team has already achieved.
