VCHS Football ready to start season, again

August 29, 2012

As bad weather rolled into Carrington Friday night, the Valley City High School football team found itself in the rarest of circumstances — a cancelled football game.
With 3:53 left in the first half, VCHS coach Scott Roehrich said the game was cancelled amidst a heavy downpour and plenty of lightening in the area.
"There's nothing you can do about it," he said. "They did the right thing that night for the safety of the kids and the spectators."

VCHS runners seeing benefit of off-season work

August 29, 2012

Every summer, Valley City High School cross country coach Brian Englehard encourages the runners on his team to keep in shape over the summer using both the weight room and, of course, running.
This summer was no different, except for one little thing — the milage he recommended got bumped up a little further than the norm.
It's a change that the runners see as a good thing.
"You can see an improvement, a big improvement," said Ruth Ihry, a senior on the girls team.
"In lots of people," sophomore April Berntson adds.

VCSU XC hosting rare home meet Friday

August 29, 2012

In nearly every sport, there's a benefit to hosting a event.
Cross country running is no exception.
"You train on it, you get to learn it," said Valley City State University cross country coach Ken Frenette. "You're comfortable with the footing, you're comfortable with the turns.
"A lot of times, even in road races, if you don't know the course you're thinking about where you're going or you're following people, so if you know it, it just eases your mind a little bit."

Even if the season's still young, the girls on the Valley City High School volleyball team have already proven one thing — there isn't a bit of quit in them.
When the team opened up its non-tournament schedule with a 25-14, 25-20, 23-25, 21-25, 15-10 loss to Carrington at the Hi-Liner Activity Center, the Hi-Liners came back after losing the first two games, pushing it to a full five-game match when all was said and done.

VCHS Tennis Loses Home Opener

August 29, 2012

In one of the earlier matches of Valley City High School's 9-0 loss to Grand Forks Central, the No. 1 singles team of Dustin Miller and Ricky Paulson showed its true potential.
Playing against Brenden Sailor, a returning state doubles runner-up, and Andrew Thompson, Miller and Paulson won their first set 6-4 against the duo.
"Our confidence was up, we played as a team, we believed in that first set," Valley City coach Matt Nielson said.
But from there, it was all downhill as the Hi-Liners dropped the next two sets 6-1, 6-1.
