Sport Spotlight: Reece Vorachek


BISMARCK, ND (KFYR) — When Reece Vorachek was younger, she was part of the Olympic development program. Now she’s a senior at BHS and Vorachek is one of the top athletes on the court night after night.

Soccer was one of the many sports Reece Vorachek of Bismarck High tried as a child, but it was one that had a lasting impact early on.

“I’ve been playing soccer since I was five years old and I’ve loved it ever since. It was just natural, it became natural to me, and my parents saw it, so they put me in it. A bunch of programs, a bunch of practices, and I naturally grew to love it too,” said Reece Voracheck, Senior BHS.

BHS Girls Soccer head coach Michelle Brown said: “The first year as a rookie she only had a few goals but we also had a lot of older staff behind her but she still contributed a lot of points this way. Junior and senior year, she took off. She was our number one goalscorer and our number one assistant. Points leader for our teams and showed it statewide.

Through 13 games this spring, Vorachek leads the West with 20 points. His ability starts with confidence against his opponents.

Vorachek said: “You have to be confident on the pitch. These players on the pitch know who you are, they know what you can do, so you have to be confident in your ability to beat them.

And that confidence stayed with Reece throughout his four years of college experience.

“It’s great to see young players come through and keep going all the way because sometimes they burn out. So to be able to get through the four years in high school and continue to college is awesome,” Brown said.

College football is next for Vorachek, and it was an opportunity that presented itself while competing in the state tournament last season.

“So last year we decided to say who was in Grand Forks, and Chris, the UND coach saw me play, and he liked the way I was playing. He contacted Michelle so that I come to one of his camps, and there he asked me to be part of his program,” Vorachek said.

His next steps in football are as a Fighting Hawk, but Vorachek won’t soon forget his experiences as a demon.

Vorachek said: “Being part of the Bismarck Demons program meant a lot to me. It brought me so many opportunities. The chance to pay off with some of my best friends who I’ve been playing with since I started playing the football. It’s great, and it was great to play at a competitive level and do well with these girls.

Reece and the Demons earned an automatic bid to declare after finishing second in the regular season and entering the WDA Tournament this week.
