FARGO — The North Dakota State University football team finished the 2011 season on the best note imaginable when it beat Sam Houston State 17-6 to win its first national championship since moving to the NCAA Division 1 Football Championship Subdivision.

After losing eight straight games to start the season, it would have been seemingly easy to write off the Valley City Post 60 American Legion baseball team.
But Saturday in Lidgerwood, the team finished second in the Section 1 tournament with a 28-1 loss to Wahpeton in the championship game.
"We started season 0-8 and not a lot of people expected us to be in this championship game, and we made a run and we got here," Valley City coach Jason Beilke said.

Post 60 No-Hit by Wahpeton

July 27, 2012

LIDGERWOOD, N.D. — Prior to Thursday, it had been awhile since the Valley City Post 60 American Legion baseball team had to hit off Wahpeton pitcher Jeremy Bontjes. By Post 60 coach Jason Beilke's count, It had been roughly two years since he pitched against Valley City at the Sectional tournament in 2010.
So much for getting reacquainted.
Bontjes threw a no hitter in Wahpeton's 11-0, five inning win over Post 60 in the semifinals of the Section 1 tournament in Lidgerwood.

"I figured I'd come in here, have some confidence, just throw strikes," Carpenter said.

Babe Ruth ends season with 1-0 loss to Oakes

July 24, 2012

STEELE, N.D. — As members of the Valley City Babe Ruth baseball team walked off the field following a 1-0 season-ending loss to Oakes Tuesday in the District 6 championship, the players' faces seemed to match the gray skies that loomed over the field during the game.
There was a bit of sadness and a hint of frustration after Valley City lost by the slimmest margin possible to a team it had pushed to the limit numerous times this summer.
