September 10, 2014

Valley City’s 3-0 (25-18, 25-17, 25-20) loss at Fargo North on Sept. 4 was tough.

Hanna Field is Devin Anderson’s world, and we are all witnesses to the Hi-Liner show.

Anderson ran for two touchdowns, snagged two third-quarter interceptions and returned one of them for six in Valley City junior varsity’s 36-8 Monday night trouncing of Maple Valley/Enderlin.

“Our line stepped up big, and we had Jake Hovland back from a concussion,” said Hi-Liner coach Aaron Heck of the Hi-Liners returning to strength in continuation of last year’s 8-0 season.

Boys Tennis Stacks Up at the Pack

September 5, 2014

Valley City faced all-State talent-laden West Fargo in Thursday’s 7-2 road loss, but such a challenge is just what a youthful team needs.

“Many positives today,” Valley City head coach Matt Nielson said. “We focused on footwork yesterday and we were better today. We preached location on our shots and the players responded. The three pillars were not upheld to our high standard on Tuesday [a 7-2 home win against Wahpeton], but they were today.”

Singles
Dalton Ondracek lost to Brady Ballweber, 6-2, 6-0.
Brandon Miller lost to Kayan Farahmand, 6-0, 6-1.
