VC's John Halgrimson athletically influenced by brother Joey

April 27, 2012

When it comes to his choices in athletics, Valley City Junior High School’s John Halgrimson is quick to point fingers. But not in a bad way.
In many cases, he’s just following the example set by his older brother, VCHS senior Joey Halgrimson.
“Most sports that I do are because my brother was in them,” Halgrimson said.  “I like doing what my brother does.”
Thursday at Lokken Field,  Halgrimson was among the top athletes at the Valley City Junior High Track Meet at Lokken Field.

Amanda Tangen had a leadoff walk in the third inning, then stole second and was driven in by Dierra Diegel to take a 4-0 lead.
