VCHS Girls Get 1st Loss

January 9, 2013

WEST FARGO — For the first month of the season, the Valley City High School girls basketball team was tested in plenty of ways. Overtime. Large comebacks.

Though the Hi-Liner girls opened the game with a point-for-point run with the Packers, a lack of scoring late in the first half kept Valley City from winning their seventh straight to start the season.
