THEWALSH COUNTY PRESS WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER I 6 2016 , Pa e 7 By Kevin Skavhaug Full Circle .. Last Tuesday was a tough day. It started like any other day. The alarm clock reading 6:00 fol- lowed by a gingerly walk down a darkened stair well. Within seconds after reaching the bottom ;:of the stairs, I stubbed my toe on the dog gate and :'stumble into the kitchen. Within :30 seconds a stuck flapper on the toilet kept the water running in. Then a nick to the lip while trimming my beard. All of this within the first five minutes of my day. I. reached school around 6:30 and like usual, put on a pot of cof- fee in my office. But I got busy making a flyer for the upcoming staff Christmas party (Kelli G . and the Hook putting on the show this year BTW) and in my haste forgot to put the pot on the burner part. So, after hearing a sizzle I discovered coffee "running everywhere over ,,my end ,table. A quick,run,- tO a nearby janitor's rooin to get some toweling only to return to find my office door has locked behind me with my keys some- where inside. Ever had one of these days? But I borrowed a key and got in, cleaned up the coffee and finished the flyer with only enough time to post one or two before I had to get to my bus route. All going well until my first stop. No one is coming out. Willow, the Kjelland's dog, is the only one to climb aboard as I wait for the two little ones to amble on out. But no one shows. Seems they did call in and can- cel, but since I was a few minutes late getting to my bus I missed the radio call telling me not to stop there. So, I get Willow off the bus and brush her golden retriever hair that's all over my pant legs onto the floor and head to stop number two. So, some days do that to a guy. You just hope it turns at some point. And it did. Hillary didn't win so in that sense my day ended on a better note than it started. By Kevin Skavhaug of The Press MAYVILLE, N.D. -- Park River/ Fordville-Lankin came into the Region 2 vol- leyball tournament with a volleyball sized chip on their shoulders. By the time they left Mayville late Thursday night, that chip had been replaced by a Region Championship Trophy The Aggies ran roughshod through the tournament field and in exciting fashion, ex- acting revenge from the number one seeded Finley-Sharon/Hope-Page in the champi- onship match. The Aggies defeated the Spar- tans three games to one to reverse the tables from last year's championship match. The Spartans were one of just two region teams to defeat the Aggies in the regular season. But the Aggies came to play Thursday. "I am so proud of these girls," said Aggie head coach Sheny Cunie, "they really came here ready to battle and nothing was going to stop them." Ready they were. By the time the first set was five minutes old. it was apparent to every- - one in the Lewy Lee Fieldhouse on the cam- pus of Mayvitle State University that there was a "wow" factor going on with the black and cold tonighti "They were a detemlined group ofwamors tomght, added Cume, '1t was just fun to sit back and watch how hard they were playing." The Aggies never slipped. Despite drop- ping the second game of the match, the Ag- gies were on their game the entire night. Us- ing the many weapons they have on offense and a defense that was everywhere and any- where (including the bleachers), the Aggies played like champions. "Everything we worked on for our game plan the girls exe- cuted beautifully," said Currie. "They fought for it and they had it in their heads that noth- ing was going to stop them." The Aggics hope to take that enthusiasm and tenacity into tomorrow's first round state tournament match when they face offin the final game of the opening.round against Kindred. "Our tournament mantra was to "never ;~i~ii;~!~ Photos: Larry Bid give up'" Coach Currie said, "and if they go Above: The Aggies played their hearts out to capture the Region 2 Championship Trophy. 3enna Zavalney,(I-r) and Taylor Dalbey show beyond just talking about it and doing it like their affection for the trophy and Bailey (middle) displays the fact that yes the A0gies are number 1 in Region 2 and have earned we did last night, it's going to beafun tour- a trip to the State Volleyball Toumament in Fargo.
