The Valiants’ three best players are all sisters. Jessica, Taylor and Kennedy Henningsgard have led Central Valley to state for the first time since 1997 and now want to add another chapter to what's already been a great story.

Jessica Henningsgard - Central Valley Sr. Guard: “It gets a little more intense when you're facing off against your sister, because you know it's your sister.”

Taylor Henningsgard - Central Valley Sophomore Guard – “Like we'll push each other more because we know how each will react to it. We've talked about this since we were little kids and now we are going in Jess' last year.”

Central Valley faces Linton HMB at 6:30; Central Cass plays the following game against Watford City.
