, Page 7 December 25, 2014 Valley News & Views Welcome back to the Laiken and Taylor Col- umn. On December 12'h, the girls' basketball team had a game against Dakota Prarie in Mackville. The 7th graders lost a very heart wrenching game. They went into not double, not triple, but qua- druple overtime! A Titan, Grace Kertz, made a basket that would of won the game, but they called her for traveling (not to sound bitter, but they traveled a whole lot and didn't get called for it much and Grace was actually nudged by the . other team and that's probably why she traveled). They went into sudden death and (after sever- al people traveling, we might add) a girl from Dakota Prairie made a three-pointer to win the game. They played their hearts out, though. The eighth grade won. The JV and Varsity both won by a lot. On December 16th, the girls played North Border in Pembina. The seventh grade won, the eighth grade lost, the JV won by about 50, and Varsity lost by around 20. The boys' basketball team played in Stark- weather on Monday, December 15th. The seventh and eighth grade teams had a conjoined Junior High game, which they lost. The JV won and the Varsity lost. As you know, Christmas is soon. Ms. Gross- man's ninth grade class was asked what they wanted for Christmas, and this is what they said: Laiken Larson: "I would like my own car." Keenan Klubben: "I want my family to be lov- ing and together." Kelsy Woinarowicz: "I would also like my own car, or money to get a car." Ms. Grossman: "I want a WiiU for Christmas." Karin Dahl: "I could always use more clothes." Ariel Deppa: "I want a poster of Megan Fox because she's awesome." Thomas Blawat: "My two front teeth. Also, a pickup." (We were asked to say this was printed for JeffBlawat. Hint, hint.) Zach Johnston: "I don't really want anything." Gaven Prigge: "I want a Polaris Scrambler to ride around."
