We would like to take a moment to recognize our senior baseball athletes. We want to recognize them for their dedication and hard work over the past four years of high school. Each athlete has displayed leadership, hard work, and determination both on and off the field. Being a student-athlete can be tough, but these young athletes have handled it with ease. Good luck to all of our student-athletes. We wish you nothing but the best in all your future endeavors, and we thank you for everything you have done here at Valley R-6 High School.

Parents and grandparents, thank you for your dedication to these young athletes. Without your help over the past four years, none of this would have been possible. 

Congratulations to our 2020–2021 senior athletes:

  • Tyler Courtway (#16) is the son of Tracy and Kristina Courtway. He has played baseball for one year.
