Legion Post 60 Ready for Regionals

July 23, 2014

Valley City Legion Post 60 carry the No. 3 seed into Thursday’s Grafton Regional Tournament after a 3-13 regular season campaign and look to hit their stride starting with an 11 a.m. debut against Harvey.

“There isn’t a team with better players position-by-position,” said Post 60 head coach Kyle Roelfsema of his squad intent on reducing mistakes in key moments that contributed to seven losses of three or fewer runs.

Thursday’s winner faces Wahpeton at 4 p.m. Thursday, the loser the Grafton-Casselton loser at 6:30 p.m Thursday.

Post 60 scored 4.75 runs per contest and gave up 12.1.

Valley City 14U Softball Update

July 18, 2014

Valley City 14U No. 1 split with West Fargo in Casselton, N.D. on Monday, taking the first game 11-10 with Noelle Thompson’s big triple driving in two runs for the lead in the top of the seventh. McKenna Taylor pitched the win.

Kacee White picked up the loss in the second game, a 6-2 loss cut short in the fourth inning because it was too dark. White and Mackenzie Pederson scored in the bottom of the third to cut the deficit to 3-2, but West Fargo pulled away and Valley City’s bats could not get going again.

Valley City 14U is at State in Grand Forks, N.D. this weekend.
