The Valley City High School baseball team closed out its second consecutive winless season with a double header Saturday against Grand Forks Central at Charlie Brown Memorial Field in Valley City.
Though the Hi-Liners dropped the second game 16-2, it was a 6-2 loss in game one, one of the teamâ€™s best efforts of the year, that impressed coach Trevar Hansen.
â€śThat was a way better game,â€ť he said. â€śWe pitched pretty well, played pretty good defense and we hit the ball okay. Thatâ€™s obviously baseball, but I mean thatâ€™s kind of what we havenâ€™t done a ton of out here.â€ť
Valley City High School senior Kierstin Lorenz (pictured) ended her senior season as the Hi-Linerâ€™s only member of the All-Eastern Dakota Conference team.

The Hi-Liners lost 5-0 to West Fargo and 3-2 to Fargo South in the team tournament. The Hi-Liners pulled plenty of upsets in the individual tournament, including consecutive upset wins by Sara Gilbertson and Sam Coit over Red Riverâ€™s top singles player, Katie Sween.
