“We finished off the Wahpeton match very well,” Valley City coach Matthew Nielson said. “The Doubles came out and dominated the rest of their matches and we rolled right into Singles, where we took care of business.

May 7, 2014

20 Hi-Liner Track & Field Personal Records at Packer Invite

May 6, 2014

Hi-Liner track and field set 20 new personal bests and placed in three events at Friday’s Packer Relays Invitational in West Fargo.

“It was a good meet for a lot of kids,” Valley City head coach Trevor Bakalar said. “I knew we had a few [personal bests], but I didn’t think so many. The older kids were gone for the New York Trip, so we went with sophomores and juniors. It’s a real indication of where we may fit for Regionals [May 17 at Cushman Field in Grand Forks, N.D.]: where can we get personal bests, where can they best qualify, and where can they help us out the most?”
