My name is Jake McNeal and I am your new Times-Record sports editor.
I come to Valley City from Portland, Ore., having found a great new opportunity.
But why Valley?
Because Valley City presents a new sports writing adventure, and I wanted to be the sports guy in a small town.
My wish most certainly came true.
Litchville native Tate Smith has organized the 2nd Annual Ride the Hide Bull Bash, to be followed by the Andrea "Annie" Arbuckle Memorial Shootout, on Aug. 24 in Litchville.
A street dance, sponsored by Uncle Dean's Tavern and the Bull Bash, and featuring the Dickinson-based band Outlaw Sippin', will follow the shootout. The Bull Bach will also feature a silent auction for the benefit of the Sauer family.
The late August sun hung over the northwest corner of Shelly Ellig Field for Valley City State's Red-vs.-White, open two-quarter running-clock scrimmage on Aug. 22.
Scores were left uncounted because the scrimmage was to be a showcase of Viking talent.
Freshman Kurtis Walls came in first at quarterback for the White team.
