Opening a final chapter to one of the most important civil rights episodes in American history, Alabama lawmakers voted Thursday to allow posthumous pardons for the "Scottsboro Boys": nine black teens who were wrongly convicted of raping two white women more than 80 years ago.
With their seasons on the line, both Jamestown basketball teams stepped up.
After the Bismarck boys and girls took care of Jamestown on Thursday in the opening round of the West Region tournament, the Blue Jays bounced back to earn victories on Friday to keep their seasons alive.
The Jamestown boys overcame a 15-point second-half deficit to defeat St. Mary’s 66-64, while the Blue Jay girls used a 13-0 run late in the first half to run away from Dickinson 59-46.
GRAND FORKS — In the final minute of the first period, Jamestown High School’s Ben Sorenson crashed the net for a rebound for a chance to tie the game at 2-all going into the first intermission.
Instead, Grand Forks Red River goalie Bryan Nies made the stickside save and 20 seconds later Casey Fugleberg was celebrating his second goal of the game as the Roughriders took a two-goal lead into the second period.
Goals against Bismarck have been hard to come by for the Blue Jays, but they will get one more chance.
The Demons defeated Jamestown 3-1 on Thursday night at the VFW Sports Arena in what amounted to a West Region Tournament preview. The two teams will meet again Thursday in the second opening-round game of the day at 1:30 p.m. Bismarck blanked the Blue Jays here 4-0 early in the season.

Sargent Central scored 41 points in the second half to overcome a three-point halftime deficit and defeat Oakes 62-55 Friday night in Oakes.
Cam Enderson had a game-high 19 points and was one of three Sargent Central scorers to eclipse double digits. Teammate Justin Arp finished with 16 and Jared Huckell had 12.
Jamestown High School swept Dickinson out of town Friday night.
The Blue Jay girls led big early, then took control late to snap a four-game skid, while a furious late rally by the JHS boys overcame a monster night by Midget ace Joe Hanstad as Jamestown won its third straight game.
The Blue Jays had not played since Dec. 21, but the wait was well worth it.
They’re back at home today when Williston comes to town. In between games they’ll dedicate the gym floor to N.D. Sports Hall of Fame inductee and former coach Jerry Meyer.
The last time Jamestown and Bottineau faced off against each other the Blue Jays had a brief lead vanish after the Braves scored three straight goals to close out the game.
And on Friday, when Jamestown hosted Bottineau, not much was different.
The Blue Jays took a 2-1 lead midway through the second period before Bottineau scored three unanswered goals to close out the period and eventually defeat Jamestown 5-3 at Wilson Arena.
The Jamestown Blue Jay boys’ tennis team took a giant leap in the right direction in Bismarck on Thursday night.
Tied 3-3 with the Demons after all the singles matches were in the books, the Jays went on to take 2 of 3 doubles matches to earn the 5-4 victory.
The win was a big one, to say the least for the Jays, who didn’t earn a dual victory all of last season.
Tournament-host Mandan went down to the wire in its Class A State-tournament opener, but the Braves got it done in the end.
Dwight Mack drove in Brett Byran in the fifth inning to break a scoreless tie and eventually lift Mandan to a 1-0 victory over Grand Forks Red River Thursday in Mandan.
Jamestown High School senior Kara Nygaard qualified for the state meet in the javelin, as the Blue Jay girls’ track and field team took 11 of 18 events to win the Hi-Liner Invitational in Valley City on Thursday.
The Jamestown High School boys’ basketball, boys’ swimming and diving and girls’ basketball teams have been named recipients of the North Dakota High School Activities Association Team Scholar Award.
