VCHS Boys Get 1st EDC Win in 2 Seasons

February 13, 2013

Over the last two years, Valley City High School boys basketball coach Scott Hurlimann has watched his team play numerous games where they were close, but couldn't quite put the finishing touches on an Eastern Dakota Conference win.
But Tuesday at the Hi-Liner Activity Center, the team made the hump look more like a speed bump, beating Devils Lake 74-58 in a two-point EDC game. It was the team's first conference win since the 2010-2011 season.

Pressure-based Runs Get Packers Past VCHS Girls

February 13, 2013

The way Valley City High School girls basketball coach Jim McDaniel looked at it, his team had two issues in Tuesday night's 67-46 loss to No. 2 West Fargo.
"Two tough runs," he said, referring to both an 18-0 first half run and a 16-2 run early in the second half. "Against good teams, we can't allow them to have runs like that."
Both runs had a few commonalities. One, they broke open the score to keep Valley City from getting too close. Two, they both started when West Fargo went into a full-court press.

Schlaufman: Many Thanks, Barnes County

So long and farewell

By Scott Schlaufman

A few months ago, I went up to Grafton.
It was a unique trip for many reasons. The Valley City High School football team was playing there in the semifinals of the AA playoffs, the day after a large snow storm hit the area.
The field itself had been plowed early that morning, but only the field, plus about a foot beyond, leaving the bleacher-less Valley City crowd to packed along the sidelines.
As the game went on, one of the girls from the school turns and asks me, "Scott- why aren't you cheering?"

VCHS Gymnastics Finishes Regular Season

Rebekah Fisher led the way with a 35.80 All Around score and placed in all events.

Viking Women Get 20th Win in Free Throw Heavy Contest

February 10, 2013

Once in a while, a team will play a game in which key points are decided on free throws.
But at times in the foul-heavy second half of the Valley City State University womens basketball team's 64-58 win over South Dakota School of Mines and Technology Saturday at W.E. Osmon Fieldhouse, the charity stripe seemed to be the primary method of scoring.
The two teams combined for 45 free throw attempts in the half alone, with the Vikings getting 18 of their 33 second-half points at the line.

Milligen Breaks 1,000 points in VCSU's 20th win

February 10, 2013

Before he took the floor for Saturday's 61-55 win over South Dakota School of Mines and Technology at W.E. Osmon Fieldhouse, Valley City State University guard Sekani Milligen knew he had a chance at two milestones: the 1,000-point mark in his career, and the team's 20th win.
Though the first is quite an accomplishment, especially given that all 1,000 points have been scored in the last two years, his mind was on the team aspect.
