Sophomore Olson Leads Hi-Liners to EDC Tourney

November 4, 2012

All season long, Valley City High School sophomore Clarissa Olson has provided a bit of hustle to the Hi-Liner volleyball team. Each match, she's among the team's dig leaders and has no problem finding a few kills.
But Friday, when the Hi-Liners beat Devils Lake 20-25, 25-14, 25-21, 25-13 in an Eastern Dakota Conference play-in match, she wanted to step up even more.
"I just decided I might as well go for it tonight," Olson said. "Sometimes your team needs to depend on a person throughout the whole game and it doesn't matter who that person is as long they're doing the right thing."

VCSU Basketball Tipping Off This Weekend

Twisters' Fisher Taking Helm of HS Gymnastics

November 1, 2012

In the past, high school gymnasts have generally had to deal with two sets of coaches — one for the high school season and one for the competitive season.
But starting with the upcoming season, the two coaching staffs will be nearly the same.
The Valley City School Board held a special meeting Thursday afternoon, where they accepted the resignation of VCHS head coach Carina Roehrich and approved hiring Dave Fisher, an assistant coach for the Valley Twisters gymnastics club, to fill the position.

Having racked up more than 2,300 yards on the ground this year, the Valley City High School football team knows the importance of stopping the run.
But when the Hi-Liners lost 20-12 to Grafton in their regular season finale Oct. 16, it all came down to an inability to stop Christian Lunde and the rest of the Spoilers' ground game.

Bestin' the West: VCHS beats Top-Seeded Bishop Ryan in AA Playoffs

October 28, 2012

MINOT — All year long, the Valley City High School football team proved it could play with the best teams in the AA East, losing by only six points to Shanley High School eight points to Grafton, the top two playoff seeds from the East.
For that reason, the team felt pretty confident entering Saturday's quarterfinal playoff game with Bishop Ryan, the top seed in the AA West region.

VCSU Football Gets 2nd Shutout of Season

October 28, 2012

The Valley City State University recovered from last weekend's loss to Jamestown with a 27-0 win over at Lindenwood University — Belleville Saturday in Belleville, Ill.
It was the second shutout of the year for the Vikings, who beat Gustavus Adolphus 16-0 earlier this month.
The Vikings got on the board early following a pass interception at their own 49-yard line. On the ensuing drive, VCSU took the ball 51 yards, losing a few yards early, but making up for it with a 54-yard pass from Tommy Zinke to Colby Lum.

BCN, LMM Lose District Openers

October 26, 2012

ELLENDALE — As the Litchville-Marion/Montpelier volleyball team prepared for the postseason, coach Ryan Nelson decided to change things up and had his team change its coverage of the floor. But in game situations, it can take a bit for the changes to kick it.
When the Rebels opened the Class B District 5 tournament Thursday in Ellendale, there was a bit of delay as the team made the adjustments in its coverage, but once they were comfortable, even a casual observer could have noted the difference.

Denholm's All-Around Effort Leads Hi-Liners Past Bruins

October 24, 2012

On the Valley City High School volleyball roster, junior Jessica Denholm is listed simply as a setter. It's not only her primary position, but one that she's plenty experienced at.
But, as Fargo South found out in the Hi-Liners' 27-25, 25-21, 25-16 win Tuesday at the Hi-Liner Activity Center, labels can be misleading.
Denholm not only put together 28 assists for Valley City but also provided seven kills and 1.5 blocks up front, six aces from the service line, and seven digs around the court.
"How about those blocks she had?" Valley City coach Katy Van Dyke said after the match.
