Vallivue Cross Country

The Vallivue Cross Country team was in Pocatello on Oct. 28 at the Portneuf Wellness Complex. The Boys team placed 14th overall with junior Braxton Hofhines leading the way, getting 30th with a time of 17:00.94. The race was cold and fast with some slight winds. Hofhines qualified individually the week before and he says that he felt accomplished and like he hit his goals. Individual senior Abigail Mills placed 98th overall, running a time of 23:01. Mills says that the race was fun and fast. She felt like she didn’t have to try hard and was just running for fun. She also qualified as an individual the week before and was the only member of the girls team to compete at state. She set a personal best at districts running a time of 22:18. Mills said that it felt surreal to make it to state and it didn’t really hit her that she made it until she was there at the race. Junior Dutton Yearsley says his goal for next season is to do summer training and make it back to state. The Vallivue Cross Country team’s next race is NXR at Eagle Island State Park on Nov. 11.

Vallivue Volleyball

The Vallivue Volleyball team was in Coeur D’Alene, Idaho on Oct. 27 at Post Falls High School. The Lady Falcons faced off against the number one ranked team in the tournament’s first round, the Bonneville Bees. The Falcons sadly lost this game in three sets. They lost their second game against the 5th seed, Skyline High School, in three sets as well.

This team beat the odds by making it to state even though they came into districts with a record of 3-13. When the volleyball team made it to state, senior Adelina Alfonso said she was very surprised. She also felt relief saying, “It would have sucked to make it to the final game just to lose.” Alfonso felt like their team wanted it the most, bringing up such a hard rally at the end. Senior Kaitlyn Rine also says making it to state felt like a dream because it was so unexpected. Rine says the reason behind the rally was the seniors coming to a realization that they didn’t want their season to be over yet, and she feels like they played as a team more than individually. Junior Densie Childs says that the volleyball team plans on building a stronger back row and coming into the next season with the same attitude they did this season.

About the Contributor
Jordan Poulsen, Staff Writer
I joined journalism because I have a dream to become a sports analyst and that requires journalism techniques to be the most successful. I love to write stories about people and just real life. I feel like the realest things are the most important things to be published. If I was writing a story I would love for it to be in the athletics department because that’s where I have the most knowledge. The biggest thing that I want to learn in journalism is the best way to interview people to get the best possible answers out of them. This will give my stories a natural flow which is what I want.
