Optimist Club announces honors

The Jamestown Optimist Club released their athletes of the week on Tuesday.

Sophomore Jadee Lange and freshman Alexa Kudrna were both honored for the high school girls award. Lange went 3-for-5 with two triples and pitched the Blue Jays to a win over Minot, her first conference win. Kudrna scored two goals against Grand Forks Central for a 3-1 victory, Jamestown’s first girls soccer win since 2010.

Taylor Orr was the high school boys winner, placing eighth out of 66 runners in the 300-meter hurdles at the Howard Wood Relays in Sioux Falls, S.D. He ran a state-qualifying time of 41.38 seconds.

The college female honor went to Ashley Barnhart, who shot an 82 for seventh place to earn first-team all-conference at the conference qualifying tournament in Omaha, Neb. She was the top finisher from the North Star Athletic Association.

Paul Sitkowski was also honored, batting 6-for-8 with three doubles and five runs batted in as the No. 25 Jimmies won the conference tournament and earned a trip to nationals over the weekend.
