When the Valley City High School gymnastics teams had its first home meet of the week Tuesday, Taylor Johnson and Rebekah Fisher kept their scores close.
Thursday, as the Hi-Liners hosted their final home meet of the regular season, a triangular with Fargo and Davies, it wasn't much different.
Johnson got the better score in the floor, Fisher narrowly had the better score on the beam and vault. The two even finished the day with a tie on the bars, scoring 8.2 each.
The big game is once again upon us. Which means tons of parties and food. If youâ€™re like me, you hate serving all your guest the same old boring appetizers. I have looked for new recipes that are simple, quick and of course delicious. I have picked a couple of my favorites to share with you. If hot and spicy is what your crowd likes, then they will love this first recipe. It is so fast an easy to make and will have your guests screaming for more.

Currently, the activities director position is a part-time position held by junior high principal Dan Larson.

Good evening everyone,
There are times I like to send information from a school board meeting when there are topics of importance to our district. Last night's meeting had several of those topics on the agenda and I would like to share some information with you.
Entering the first day of the 2012 Barnes County Girls Basketball Tournament at W.E. Osmon Fieldhouse, Valley City High School coach Jim McDaniel had his team focus heavily on both fundamentals and staying consistent with them throughout the game.
By the end of the Hi-Linersâ€™ 62-22 tournament opening win over Barnes County North, he was pleased.
â€śI thought all four quarters, we offensively did what we were supposed to do. We ran our offenses,â€ť McDaniel said. â€śDefensively, I thought we did a nice job pressuring the ball, making it hard for them to make it for them to get good, easy looks.â€ť
