"We thought we could do some things with our post players because we're probably a litle quicker," DeVries said.
So as the Blue Hawks trapped Valley City's guards, leaving post players open, the Vikings capitalized, getting 29 combined points from Brittany Lehner and Kelsey Hunter in an 81-59 win at W.E. Osmon Fieldhouse in the teams' first encounter this season.

Valley City State University President Steven Shirley had little trouble acknowledging the schoolâs recent success Monday, when he addressed students, faculty and community members during his annual State of the University address at Vangstad Auditorium. But that didnât keep him from looking to the near future.
âTo use the term âcrossroadsâ too often becomes cliche,â he told the crowd. âHowever, I sincerely believe we are at a crossroads at Valley City State University, and with this crossroad, we have a unique opportunity to transform our educational offerings.â
