Vikings' woes end with sweep, VCSU digest

April 16, 2012

With their backs against the wall and reeling in an eight game losing streak, the Valley City State University Vikings busted out of their offensive slump and picked up a sweep of visiting Jamestown College.
In game one, Viking pitcher Katie McBride limited the Jimmie offense to just three hits and gave up one earned run to pick up the win.
Timely hitting and big play defense kept the Vikings in the game. After an unearned run in the top of the second gave the Jimmies a 1-0 lead, the Vikings plated two in the home half of the third.
A solo home run for the Jimmies tied it at 2-2.

Raising the bar: Viland aims for record breaking senior season

April 16, 2012

Valley City High School senior Paul Viland only has a certain amount of focus on the state track and field meet this early in the season.
He’ll likely make the cut sooner or later.
Instead, the pole vaulter has a number on his mind — 13 feet, 4 inches.
“That will break the school record by an inch,” he said.
It’s the ultimate goal for the senior, who picked up pole vaulting in middle school and is continually breaking his personal best in the event.

Sporadic pitching problems hurt VCSU in sweep to NSU

April 12, 2012

With a big four-game series against Jamestown coming up this weekend, the Valley City State University baseball team used a different pitching strategy than it normally would in a double header sweep to NCAA Division II Northern (S.D.) State University.

Going the distance: Distance runners bring depth, experience to VCHS track

April 11, 2012

When Valley City High School runner Ruth Ihry started with the school’s track and field team, she wasn’t much for distance.
“She used to be a sprinter,” her teammate, Allyson Suhr, said with a friendly, if not slightly accusatory tone. “We converted her.”
Asked why, Ihry thinks for a minute.
“All my friends,” Ihry said.
Now, Ihry has become one of the numerous distance runners on a team that has plenty of depth in the area.
