MINOT â€” 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.
The Valley City State University recovered from last weekend's loss to Jamestown with a 27-0 win over at Lindenwood University â€” 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.

A bride should always keep her groom guessing. Donâ€™t you think? Shoot! You donâ€™t even need to be a bride to a groom. Iâ€™ll expand that sentence to declare, â€śA person should always keep the world guessing!â€ť And so I do.

ELLENDALE â€” 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.

The Valley City School District's major campaign to collect food for those in need begins Wednesday, albeit under a new name, â€śStuff The Truck.â€ť
Last year the effort went under the name â€śPack The HAC.â€ť The new name brings the effort full circle, said Cindy Waagen, director of Marketplace Foods.
â€śThat was our original name,â€ť when Marketplace Foods started the effort in 2000, Waagen said Wednesday.
The Valley City School District took over leadership in about 2005, Waagen said. â€śWhen it was done by Marketplace the schools were always involved,â€ť she said.
