Viking Alum Tony Piccalo New Assistant Football Coach

June 19, 2014

Tony Piccalo is a new Valley City State assistant football coach, Viking head coach Dennis McCulloch announced Thursday.

Piccalo, a 2002 Valley City State graduate, was Cocoa Beach High School (Fla.)’s head coach for the last nine years. From 1998-2001, Piccalo’s undergraduate years, Piccalo was a Viking student assistant coach.

“I had an outstanding time during my four years at VCSU,” Piccalo said. “We had the highest of highs and the lowest of lows, and I really grew as a coach. The university and community have been a big part of my life.”

Babe Ruth Rallies for Sweep at Lisbon

June 16, 2014

Valley City Babe Ruth beat Lisbon twice on the road Thursday night, coming back from a 9-5 fourth-inning deficit for a nine-inning 12-9 District win and surviving a three-run third frame in the 6-3 non-District finisher.

“We didn’t come out playing our best,” Valley City head coach Lance Lukes said. “We were just kind of going through the motions and not putting anything really into it. We left too many runners on base and didn’t execute some of the little things that we need to be doing.”

Valley City led 2-0 after two District innings on Justin Manson’s inside-

Carrington Takes Pizza Corner Crown

June 16, 2014

Drew Oberlander’s third-inning single had Valley City Babe Ruth up 3-2 in Sunday’s Pizza Corner Classic championship, but Carrington’s two-run single in the fourth sparked an 8-4 trophy triumph.

“We didn’t play our best baseball and, when you’re playing a good team like Carrington, if you don’t play well, you won’t beat a good team,” Valley City head coach Lance Lukes said. “We made too many mistakes
out there: fielding errors, throwing errors, pitching errors, and Carrington, being the good team they are, took advantage of them.”

Jenson, Babe Ruth Blank Edgeley, 18-0

June 11, 2014

Sam Jenson pitched Valley City Babe Ruth’s second no-hitter in as many games and led the offense in Tuesday night’s 18-0, 19-hit District win over host Edgeley.

“Again we had another great pitching performance,” Valley City head coach Lance Lukes said. “Jenson improved from his last outing and found some things that worked and kept up with them. Our offense came out little sluggish in the first two innings; we talked and changed our approach and rattled off base hit after base hit. It’s always nice to put up that many hits in a game.”
