Every year, the Valley City High School cross country team hosts the Bill Jansen Invitational meet, and one thing never changes — the size.
"It's generally bigger than most of them," Valley City cross country coach Brian Engelhard said.
This year's race takes place 11 a.m. Saturday at the Bjornson Park Golf Course.
Over 500 runners from 30 schools across the state are signed up to race in the event, which runs junior high and junior varsity races as well.

September 14, 2012

MONTPELIER, N.D. — With only a handful of players with significant varsity experience and five with no varsity experience entering the season, it'd be easy to dismiss the Litchville-Marion/Montpelier volleyball team.
But even with an 0-10 record, it's a team that first-year coach Ryan Nelson believes the girls are onto something, even if the record isn't showing it.
"To come out the way we are playing, it's awesome," Nelson said. "We don't have a win yet, but we've gone four sets a couple of times now with teams that are supposed to be top dogs in our district.

Skalicki said seat belts and sober driving would have saved many of the lives lost on North Dakota roads in 2011 and 2012.
