May 15, 2012

“Heartbreakers,” she said.
This year, she isn’t approaching the EDC tournament any differently. Same routine, same goal — getting one more trip to Fargo for the state tournament.

Hi-Liners swept by Devils Lake

May 15, 2012

It's not every day that a baseball team is forced to play eight players.
Nor is it a situation that Valley City High School baseball coach Trevar Hansen ever predicted he'd have to play with.
But in a 20-6 loss in the second game of a doubleheader sweep to Devils Lake Monday at Charlie Brown Field, the Hi-Liners caught a stroke of bad luck right as the team seemed on the verge of its first win.
Instead, the Hi-Liners had a game-ending injury to Brett Rockneberg in the second inning that forced the team to play short handed for the final four innings.

The Valley City Area Concert Association had its very last concert Thursday, May 10, and has ended as an organization. “A total decapitation of our executive board combined with a shrinking and aging audience and increasing costs it’s just been harder and harder to make these concerts happen,” explained Wes Anderson, who is a volunteer member of the concert association board.

Their last of many concerts usually held in VCSU’s Vangstad Auditorium or Froemke Auditorium featured “METALES M5,” Mexico’s finest young brass quintet whose members live in and around Mexico City.
