Jamestown College is the 2011-2012 recipient of the Dakota Athletic Conference Scholars award, presented annually to the school with the highest percentage of athletes honored as scholar-athletes. The school had 42 percent of its athletes honored for academic achievements.
A successful season for Jamestown College athletics was capped with a Cup.
The final DAC Commissioner’s Cup, awarded to the school with the best overall record in conference competition, was presented to Jamestown College on Friday. It capped a season in which JC teams captured seven conference titles, which totaled out to 42 points, easily more than runner-up Dickinson State’s 33.5.

After Tuesday night’s memorable Dakota Athletic Conference women’s championship game at the Bubble in Valley City, an avid Jamestown sports fan said to me, “You know, something like this may never happen again.”
I was thinking the exact same thing most of the night.
Conference games are a different animal.
Thursday night, the Jimmies found a way to tame it.
Up 13 deep into the second half, then down three late in the game, Jamestown College hit a three and four late free throws down the stretch to hold off Dickinson State Thursday night in the Dakota Athletic Conference opener for both teams.
The Jimmies, who stretched their winning streak to seven, appeared in control for 20 minutes, but the Blue Hawks nearly stole it late — just another night in the DAC.
Tevin Hurd had told Dickinson State coach Ty Orton he was done shooting threes.
Luckily for the Blue Hawks, he took one more.
The junior from Fairfield, Calif., buried the go-ahead triple with 7.5 seconds left as the Blue Hawks got out of Jamestown with a hard-earned 56-55 DAC victory Thursday night at the Civic Center.
Hillcrest Golf Course will host the Dakota Athletic Conference cross country meet today.
Black Hills State is the favorite in both the men’s and women’s races.
The Yellow Jacket women have won five straight conference titles and are ranked ninth in the latest NAIA top 25 — the only DAC team ranked.
Jamestown College will host Mayville State at 7 p.m. Saturday night in the opening round of the Dakota Athletic Conference playoffs at the Hansen Center.
The Jimmies, the three-time defending regular-season conference champions, have not lost a set at home in DAC matches and are 27-3 at the Hansen Center the last three seasons.
