Jamestown plays Minot in a state-qualifer at approximately 1:30 p.m. today. "We had a good effort out of everybody," Jamestown coach Matt Stockert said.

Paxton Mewes guaranteed himself a sixth-place finish at the Class A state wrestling tournament on Thursday, but his goals are much higher. The Jamestown High School junior, seeded second at 160, took care of both of his first-day opponents to punch his ticket to the state semifinals at the Fargodome. Mewes opened the day by pinning Brett Doeden of Williston in 1 minute, 13 seconds to earn a spot in the quarterfinals.
Another West Region hockey tournament, another gut-wrenching loss for Jamestown.

Fourth-seeded Jamestown, which fell to 1-3 in one-goal games at the West Region tournament the past three years, plays ninth-seeded Williston at 11 a.m. today in a loser-out game.
The Jamestown girls hockey team didn't have a season like this in mind when they dropped the puck in the season opener. The Blue Jays, with just two seniors, haven't been able to replicate the same end-of-season success they had last season. Still, Jamestown coach Justin Connell said he's pleased with the way his Jays have clawed and scratched their way through games, despite the losses. "They've battled every game -- they've never quit," Connell said. Jamestown's two wins both came over Devils Lake, and they hope to steal at least one more when they wrap up their season at home this weeke
