Jays struggle at region meet
Jamestown North Dakota 121 3rd St NW 58401

After several strong meets in a row, the Jamestown High School gymnastics team slipped back on Friday.

The Blue Jays placed fifth at the West Region meet in Dickinson, narrowly missing out on third, but were off in general.

“The last several meets if it could go right it did, but (Friday) was one of those where scoring was a little low to begin with and we weren’t as sharp and it was a bad combination,” said coach Dave Tews. “Yet despite that, we were still close to Century and Bismarck. So, hopefully we can bounce back next week.”

Erin Hillerud had a steady 35.1 all around, which was 11th overall.

“She was a little off, but was still over 35,” Tews said.

Kaiann Arellano, fighting an ankle injury, posted a solid 33.025.

“She performed well considering her ankle is still bothering her. We didn’t know if she’d be able to go, but all things considered she gave us a really good effort,” Tews said.

Maggie Ridley (33.05) also was near her normal range of scoring, but the rest of the team dipped slightly.

“We were a little off across the board where as in the past meets when someone was off somebody else would step up and that just didn’t happen,” Tews said.

Hillerud was seventh on beam (9.0). Her top score of 9.225 on floor was 10th. Ridley tied for 14th on vault (8.95).

Bismarck Century (136.4) and Bismarck (135.775) came in third and fourth ahead of Jamestown’s 134.775. Minot (147.175) and Dickinson (146.525) separated from the pack.

The Blue Jays are qualified as a team and will still have as many as 10 competing individually at state.

“I would think next week that gap should close up a little bit,” Tews said. “Century, Bismarck and us probably all feel like we can do a little better.”

The state meet begins Friday in Minot and wraps up Saturday.
