Valley Cityâ€™s first win of the season, Tuesdayâ€™s 7-2 home defeat of Wahpeton, will really help them feel at home when Regionals rolls around.
â€śAfter a strong showing in Doubles, the Singles had me worried,â€ť Hi-Liner head coach Matt Nielson said. â€śNo. 1 and No. 3 Singles were both blowouts, but every other match had spots where the match could go either way. This is a big win for us as it gives us an opportunity to get out of the play-in match and guarantees us home court advantage in case we are in the play-in match.â€ť

â€śWe have three new players to tennis this year who are playing Varsity: Riley Miller, Collin White and Hunter Burchill,â€ť Valley City head coach Matt Nielson said. â€ś[In] each match, these three played their best match to date. Iâ€™m impressed with all threeâ€™s attitudes, coachability and belief that they can win the next point.â€ť

If you thought Valley City was in trouble at Dickinson on Friday night, you havenâ€™t met these Hi-Liners.
Down 14-0 in the second quarter of a game delayed by bus trouble, Valley City scored three times in the second half off three Midget fumbles and held for the upset at Dickinson Stateâ€™s Fisher Field.
â€śIt was guts, especially with a 2A team playing a 3A team,â€ť Hi-Liner head coach Scott Roehrich said. â€śThey manhandled us last year [a 48-0 Midget opener at Hanna Field], but these were not the same two teams playing as last year.â€ť
