So long and farewell
By Scott Schlaufman
A few months ago, I went up to Grafton.
It was a unique trip for many reasons. The Valley City High School football team was playing there in the semifinals of the AA playoffs, the day after a large snow storm hit the area.
The field itself had been plowed early that morning, but only the field, plus about a foot beyond, leaving the bleacher-less Valley City crowd to packed along the sidelines.
As the game went on, one of the girls from the school turns and asks me, "Scott- why aren't you cheering?"
The Valley City High School gymnastics team finished the regular season last Thursday, taking third in a meet in Jamestown.
The Hi-Liners earned their highest team score of the season despite having Sara Gilbertson, one of the team's most consistent vaulters and a strong beam performer, out with a sore ankle.
Rebekah Fisher led the way with a 35.80 All Around score and placed in all events.
