Sorenson to golf at VCSU
Valley City High School golfer Ben Sorensen has signed a letter of intent to attend Valley City State University and join the Viking golf team, VCSU coach Nathan Stover announced Wednesday night.

Our Outdoors: Helping you gives glimpse at future fishers

April 20, 2012

For the past two weeks, I’ve been instructing a course on fly tying and lure making combined with a Fishing 102 of sorts for area youth age 12 to 15 which introduced them to light tackle fishing and the basics of the fly rod. After seeing the world that this generation has grown up in (and I know I’m starting to sound old) with cell phones, Xboxes, and a multitude of other distractions, I had my concerns that it would be tough to hold their attention. After all, sometimes it takes me, with my short attention span, an entire winter just to decide what lures to make in April.

North Dakota Outdoors: Easing concerns over an early fishing season

April 20, 2012

Each week I close my column with my contact email information. Later, when the inbox dings to signal a new message has arrived, I’m never certain what the pretense for the email is, but I do enjoy the electronic communication.
 Recently a reader took issue with an explanation I previously provided regarding harvest of big fish in the spring prior to the time that either walleyes or northern pike have spawned for the year.

VCHS softball gets a sweep
The Valley City High School softball team got a good all-around effort in a sweep of Fargo South Tuesday in Fargo.
The Hi-Liners won 13-0 and 12-0 against the Bruins, combining for 19 hits, while their pitchers allowed two.
Keely Fogarty pitched eight of the ten innings played in the two games, allowing two hits the first game and none in the second. Jessica Denholm relieved her in the second game and kept the no-hitter going.

Solid start ends in 23-1 loss for Hi-Liner baseball team

April 18, 2012

Amidst the numerous high scoring losses the Valley City High School baseball team has faced this season, the attitude at Charlie Brown Memorial Field can be a little off at times.
But early in the second game of a sweep to Fargo South, things perked up momentarily.
“The kids were excited,” coach Trevar Hansen said. “They played harder and more excited. I thought it was way different.”
It didn’t last long, as the Hi-Liners lost 23-1 to the Bruins, but the feeling was there.
