VCSU baseball team ready to start "second season"

March 29, 2012

As anyone in Valley City will tell you, winter doesn’t always treat springs sports teams well.
But as this last winter progressed in a mild fashion, Valley City State University baseball coach Casey Olney and his coaching counterparts at Dickinson State University and Jamestown College kicked around the idea of moving the Dakota Athletic Conference preseason tournament from sites in South Dakota to local fields.
But even those talks were done with a hint of caution as coaches waited to see whether their fields would be playable.

Vikings split softball series with Bemidji

March 28, 2012

On a cold and windy day, the Valley City State University Vikings dropped the opening game at NCAA Division II opponent Bemidji (Minn.) State 2-0 before rebounding in the second game to salvage a split with a 6-2 victory.
Game one flew by as both pitchers worked quickly and limited each team’s offenses. The Beavers gave pitcher Courtney Anderson a 1-0 lead in the bottom of the first and it was all the room she needed as Anderson held the Viking bats to just three hits in seven innings.

Following familiar footsteps: Casey Englehard among youth of VCHS track and field team

March 27, 2012

FARGO — Those who have followed the Valley City High School track and field team probably recognize the name “Engelhard.”
After all, Wayne Engelhard was a state champion in the 800 meter run, and more recently has been a two-time qualifier for the NAIA national meet at Valley City State University.
But this year, there’s a different Engelhard looking to make a difference for the Hi-Liners. Wayne’s brother, Casey, has been among the younger athletes to find his footing as part of the VCHS track and field team early in the season.

VC 4th graders win title at Spring Shootout tournament

March 26, 2012

Although nearly all the tournaments at the Valley City Parks and Recreation Spring Shootout basketball tournament were played in a round-robin format, there were times where it seemed to work out otherwise.
Take, for instance, the 4th grade boys tournament.
There was no bracket, but the championship still came down to one final game at the end of the day.
In the final game, the Valley City Lightning did what it needed in a 30-28 win over Devils Lake. It was the second time in as many weeks that the teams played for a tournament championship. Both times, Valley City came out on top.

VCHS track team hopes to return seniors to state

March 22, 2012

By the casual runner’s standards, the low 70 degree temperatures at Shelly Ellig Field Wednesday would have been a bit much.
But just before 4:30 p.m., the Valley City High School boys and girls track and field teams went out in full force.
On the turf in the football field’s sidelines, the distance runners finished another run and took a quick breather, watching the sprinters do quick laps around the track. Off in the distance, the field athletes are taking turns throwing.
