Building on experience: VCHS softball returns plenty of players from last year's state contenders

April 3, 2012

Valley City High School softball coach Jason Lindgren is the first to admit that his team is plenty young.
With only five seniors, there are numerous freshmen and sophomores that contribute to the Hi-Liners’ success.
But what the team may lack in age, the girls make up for in experience.
“You’re counting on a lot of younger people but they, the sophomores for example, have been playing a lot since they were 8th graders, they saw time when they were 7th graders, so they’ve got a lot of varsity experience,” coach Jason Lindgren said. “It’s not new to them.”

Some protest was heard over the impending Ninth Avenue Northwest reconstruction project Monday night, and the Valley City City Commission vowed to do what they could to make it right.

“I think the assessment is unfair,” Ninth Avenue homeowner Mike Bresnahan told the commission. “In my case, the amount being assessed is about $21,000. The amounts are ridiculous relative to the values of the homes.”

“It’s a little hard because you’ve put so much into it,” Schwehr said of the closing. “It’s tough. They’ve been good to us around here, the community’s supported us well. We’ve been thanking everybody for everything they’ve done over the years.”
