Hi-Liners swept by Devils Lake

May 15, 2012

It's not every day that a baseball team is forced to play eight players.
Nor is it a situation that Valley City High School baseball coach Trevar Hansen ever predicted he'd have to play with.
But in a 20-6 loss in the second game of a doubleheader sweep to Devils Lake Monday at Charlie Brown Field, the Hi-Liners caught a stroke of bad luck right as the team seemed on the verge of its first win.
Instead, the Hi-Liners had a game-ending injury to Brett Rockneberg in the second inning that forced the team to play short handed for the final four innings.

Home-field advantage: Jr. High baseball team wins consolation title in home tourney

May 14, 2012

For the most part, the Valley City Junior High School baseball team has played its home games away from Charlie Brown Field, instead, playing their games at Hi-Line Park.
It's a park that plays differently than it's counterpart to the direct north.
Most notably, there is a distinct lack of fences separating the play from the soccer nets and backstops in the distance.

Strong from the start: 3-run first inning helps Hi-Liners beat Fargo North

May 14, 2012

For better or worse, the first inning has made the difference for the Valley City High School softball team recently.
Against West Fargo Tuesday, the Hi-Liners struggled out of the gate and couldn’t catch up to the top-ranked Class A team in the state.
But in Thursday’s 7-4 win over No. 4 Fargo North, it was a different story.
The Hi-Liners opened the game by getting North’s first three batters out in succession, then came back and scored three of their first five batters to take a 3-0 lead that the team never gave up.

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — The Minnesota Vikings moved to within a governor's signature of getting a new $975 million stadium on Thursday after the state Senate approved a plan that relies heavily on public financing.
