Maple Valley girls keep it simple in win over Firebirds

January 31, 2012

With the season's end approaching rapidly, the Maple Valley girls basketball team got a little experimental in Monday's 55-29 home win over Central Prairie.
Rather than playing their normal 2-3 zone, the Raiders switched over to a 1-3-1 instead.
Though coach Jeff Miller said he was pleased with the results of the defense, it was the second half, when the defense got back to basics, the Raiders thrived.
In the third quarter, Maple Valley outscored the Firebirds 20-2 to take a 47-20 lead.

Valley City teams win championships at local youth tournament

January 30, 2012

Valley City teams don't get a chance to play many tournaments in front of a home-town crowd, so Saturday offered a change of pace.
Rather than hitting the road, three local youth teams — the 6th grade B boys, 6th grade girls and 4th grade B boys — were among 42 teams in seven divisions that took the court at the Valley City Parks and Recreation District Youth Basketball Tournament Saturday.
The tournaments were played on courts spanning from the Recreation Center and City Auditorium buildings to the W.E. Osmon Fieldhouse at Valley City State University.

Twins Manager Gardenhire updates VC fans on Morneau, Mauer, free agents

January 18, 2012

During Tuesday's stop in Valley City, Minnesota Twins hitting coach Joe Vavra emphasized the value of having veteran leaders on the team.
"You've got to have those guys in the clubhouse to take control of the people they're dressing with," Vavra told an audience of about 60 people at Trestle's Bar and Grill Tuesday. "We're off to the side, we're promoting, obviously, what they're supposed to get done on the field, but you've got to have a leader step up," he said. "You've got to have a voice, somebody they can relate to when times are down."

Lemnus comes through in Hi-Liners' win over Fargo South

January 18, 2012

The Valley City High School wrestling team isn't exactly known for its lower weight wrestlers.
Once you get to 138-pound class, you get into the state contenders, but the 106 to 132 pounders tend to be more inexperienced.
"We're really young down there," Valley City coach Brandon Larson said. "We've got some junior high kids going out there."
But in Tuesday's 40-33 dual win over Fargo South at the Hi-Liner Activity Center, it was a younger wrestler who came through.

VCSU women start slow, beat Wildcats

January 16, 2012

The Valley City State University womens basketball team had a slower start than coach Jill DeVries would have liked.

But, DeVries said, the intentions were good.

Milligen hurt, but Viking men beat Johnson & Wales

January 16, 2012

The Valley City State University mens basketball team didn't have the best looking win Sunday against Johnson and Wales (Colo.) University.
After leading the game by 17 points at halftime, the Vikings were outscored 30-17 in the second half, primarily because of cold shooting.
The Vikings still finished ahead with a 57-47 score and VCSU coach Jeff Kaminsky was pleased nonetheless. It was the team's second win in as many days.

Barnes County North takes 4th, LMM 7th in BCT consolation games

January 16, 2012

The Barnes County North girls basketball may have lost 61-41 to Northern Cass in the third place game of the Barnes County Tournament, but coach Randy Hooey felt looks could be deceiving.
"This was not a 20 point game, at all," he said. "It was a lot better game than that."
Early, the Bison held their own and even had an 11-2 lead midway through the first quarter.
The rest of the half, the two teams went back and forth, with Northern Cass going on a run and BCN catching up. In the final two minutes, BCN's Calby Hanson had five points to narrow the Jaguars' lead to 28-25 by halftime.

There are some losses that just don’t sit well with a team.
For the Maple Valley girls, it was their lone loss of the year, 63-57 in overtime at home against Valley City Jan. 3.

Saturday at the W.E. Osmon Fieldhouse, the Raiders got their rematch with Hi-Liners and made sure the sequel turned out differently. This time, Maple Valley got the 52-46 win and took home the Barnes County Tournament championship.
