Jays ready for Red River


Jamestown volleyball coach Sara Hegerle considered going to a Grand Forks Red River match earlier this season, but talked herself out of it.

Now, she’s shaking her head.

The only Class A team in the entire state that Hegerle has not watched in person will be the Blue Jays’ opening-round opponent at the state tournament. Jamestown (32-4) meets Red River in the quarterfinals at 2 p.m. Thursday at the Minot State Dome.
