Lady Hi-Liners Defend Osmon Fieldhouse on National Guard Night

Lady Hi-Liner basketball hosted Eastern Dakota Conference rival Wahpeton on North Dakota National Guard Night at Valley City State’s W.E. Osmon Fieldhouse, a site agreed upon with savvy scheduling adjustments, on Tuesday night and rode a strong second half to a 54-38 win.

“We rescheduled with Wahpeton to make the dates work,” Hi-Liner head coach Waylan Starr said. “VCSU has a bigger floor and a quality court, and it’s good for us because we’ll see neutral courts in the regional tourney. They contacted us about honoring the National Guard on Nov. 1, and the girls didn’t know until today. They were happy to show their appreciation, wore their uniforms in school and we bought the camouflage socks for them. My brother and my dad were in the service, and we’re showing respect to honor all those involved.”
