VC/BC CROP Hunger Walk 2012

April 17, 2012

Organizers of this year’s Valley City/Barnes County CROP Hunger Walk hope this year’s event will be a success and include the traditional walk, said the Rev. Emmy Isaackson of Our Saviors Lutheran Church Monday.

Last year’s walk raised $5,455, but Isaackson said no walk took place in 2011 due to flooding worries in Valley City and around Barnes County.

Isaackson is also a member of the local CROP Walk planning team this year. Many Valley City churches and their congregations are participating in this year’s event, scheduled for Sunday, April 29.

Vikings' woes end with sweep, VCSU digest

April 16, 2012

With their backs against the wall and reeling in an eight game losing streak, the Valley City State University Vikings busted out of their offensive slump and picked up a sweep of visiting Jamestown College.

Timely hitting and big play defense kept the Vikings in the game. After an unearned run in the top of the second gave the Jimmies a 1-0 lead, the Vikings plated two in the home half of the third.
A solo home run for the Jimmies tied it at 2-2.
