Following the conclusion of the District 5 boys’ basketball tournament at the Jamestown Civic Center on Monday, all-district honors were handed out to athletes who stood out over the course of the 2009-10 season.
The last time the Jamestown Civic Center was as loud as it was on Monday night, the 70s rock group KISS was in town.
Litchville-Marion-Montpelier had to have recruited just about every available body within its school system to compete with the high-numbered, boisterous Valley City fans.
The respective noise levels were a tie. The game, however, wasn’t.
Few would have tabbed Litchville-Marion-Montpelier to be in the final game of this season’s District 5 Boys’ Basketball Tournament. But as the saying goes: that’s why they play the games.
After falling to Ellendale 54-47 in the regular season, the No. 3-seeded Rebels picked up the win that mattered most by defeating the No. 2-seeded Cardinals 56-46 in the semifinals on Saturday at the Jamestown Civic Center.
It was predicted that Valley City held the tools to shake up District 5 boys’ basketball right out of the gate in its first year competing in Class B, and those predictions rang true.
The Hi-Liner’s rolled up a successful 14-5 record over the course of the regular season and enter today’s District 5 Boys’ Basketball Tournament as the No. 1 seed with a district mark of 6-1.
This was the game the Ellendale Cardinals were waiting for, and when the opportunity presented itself the Cards didn’t disappoint.
Ellendale’s Kinsey Holm scored 8 points in the first half and 9 more in the second, igniting the Cardinals to their first District 5 girls’ basketball title in over a decade against the three-time defending champion Litchville-Marion-Montpelier Rebels 47-41 on Monday night at the Jamestown Civic Center.
Barnes County North played the spoiler on Thursday night during the quarterfinal round of the District 5 girls’ basketball tournament at the Jamestown Civic Center.
The No. 5-seeded Lady Bison came from behind to upend the No. 4-seeded Edgeley-Kulm Rebels 39-34 in the closing seconds.
The rest of the opening round all went as planned.
The Ellendale Cardinals will be attempting to dethrone three-time defending champion Litchville-Marion-Montpelier when the girls’ District 5 basketball tournament tips off this afternoon at the Jamestown Civic Center.
The Central Prairie faithful were hoping and praying the entire game for someone to make a shot, and boy did they get their wish.
Trailing the Ellendale Cardinals 62-57 with 55 seconds to play in the District 5 championship game at the Civic Center on Monday night, hope was quickly fading for the tourney’s No. 1 seed.
In order to win in the postseason, teams need players to step up in the clutch.
That’s exactly what the Ellendale Cardinals received in Saturday’s District 5 boys’ basketball semifinals against Litchville-Marion-Montpelier at the Jamestown Civic Center.
Apparently, the cure for Edgeley-Kulm’s shooting woes was the Jamestown Civic Center.
At least it seemed that way for the first eight minutes on Friday.
The No. 4-seeded Rebels opened the Class B District 5 tournament with a 56-43 victory over No. 5 seed LaMoure.

Following the conclusion of the District 5 girls’ basketball tournament in Jamestown on Saturday, the 2008-09 all-district players were announced.
The all-district team was selected prior to last week’s tournament. The players that were named to the team earned the achievement based on season-long accomplishments.
Chalk up a third straight District 5 girls’ basketball tournament championship for the Litchville-Marion-Montpelier Rebels.
In the title game on Saturday at the Civic Center, the Rebels rode on 66.7 percent shooting in the first half to go up by 15 at the break over the Rebels of Pingree-Buchanan-Kensal.
