ROGERS — On paper, the final scores in the Barnes County North volleyball team's 3-0 loss to LaMoure were pretty rough.
But given the youth of the team, Bison coach Lauren Ressler wasn't too bothered by the 25-8, 25-16, 25-6 outcome.
"It's tough when the score doesn't show that there are good things happening out there," Ressler said. "I am seeing progress every day, it's just that by the time the game comes, everything has to be fitting together."

VCHS Volleyball loses to Shanley

September 7, 2012

So far this season, Valley City High School volleyball coach Katy Van Dyke has put the emphasis on defense.
After Tuesday's 25-23, 25-8, 25-18 home loss to Fargo Shanley to open Eastern Dakota Conference play, she's expecting to change that emphasis.
Though the Hi-Liners had plenty of success digging balls and keeping them alive, they struggled at times with getting spikes to land in-bounds.

The Maple Valley Raiders volleyball team won its season and home opener to the Barnes County North Bison Thursday.
The Raiders started their season with a 3-0 win, heavily leading in points throughout the match.
Short and and out-of-bounds serves by BCN gave the Raiders some points in the first game, and a scoring streak by senior Cassie Pautz serving produced more points as BCN struggled to respond.
Maple Valley started off the first game with four points in the first couple minutes.
BCN redeemed themselves with four points, but not for long as Maple Valley scored five more.

Blonde on the Prairie: Wake Up to What’s Going on Around You

September 7, 2012

I struggle with typing this story to you. I want not for this to be about me. It is anything but. Know I am aware that by sharing it I am shining a light on my own ego. I fought with myself internally before deciding the end lesson must be told despite the fact some of you may misread this and think I am bragging or asking for praise. Hear me. No praise. Hear me. I usually wouldn’t share what happened today. I do it often but today was different.

David Shea, of the USDA’s Farm Service Agency office in Valley City, said the declaration is based on the county’s drought level and drought conditions, and opens the door for area farmers to apply for low-interest loans through the FSA’s farm loan program.
