When Valley City High School volleyball coach Katy Van Dyke entered the season, she set out to change things up.
From the general formula of practice to the way the team runs its 6-2 rotation, the Hi-Liners are building on familiar skills and adding a second defense to its repertoire.

The Hi-Liners open the season today and Saturday with six matches at the Bismarck High/Bismarck Century Crossover tournament in Bismarck.

August 20, 2012

The Valley City State University volleyball team showed glimpses of what its deep front line was capable of in Saturday's season opening losses to Waldorf (Iowa) College and Jamestown College.

The problem, especially in a three game loss to Jamestown, was a back line that struggled to get balls to its setter to run the offense as planned.
