VCHS Bowling Goes 2-1 at Red River
Strong leadership by senior and co-captain Jared Swanberg and strong performances by teammates Levi Nix and Brett Hejtmanek led the Valley City High School bowling team to an easy win over Fargo North as the team went 2-1 in its opening matches of the season.
In the second match, Valley City was pinned against a strong Fargo South team dropping all 5 games. Swanberg had a strong showing with an 84% fill percentage and Hejtmanek at 80%.
Valley City got behind a strong performance by Nix in the third match, in which the team beat West Fargo.
Levi Nix had an errorless match with a 100% fill percentage. Swanberg, Hejtmanek, and Austin Lura
all had strong performances and showed great teamwork.

Valley City Junior Varsity dropped their first match of the season to Griggs County. First year member Austen Dahl lead the JV with a 60% fill percentage. Match two: JV bowlers claimed an easy victory over Fargo South, winning all five games. Dahl again led the team with a 90% fill percentage. In the third match West Fargo proved to be too much for the JV team only allowing one win in the five games. The lack of converted spares was costly to the team.
