Jimmie women victorious in opener


Getting off to a good start was a priority for the Jimmie women’s soccer team.

They accomplished that on Friday.

Freshman Connie Contreras scored early in the second half for the game’s only goal in a 1-0 University of Jamestown win over Morningside College.

“There’s always anxiety with a team in getting that first win. The last couple of years we started out 0-2, so to get that first one out of the way is pretty gratifying,” UJ head coach Nick Becker said.
