Jimmie women's basketball squad relies on seniors.
Opening-round games at the NAIA national tournament have not been a problem for the University of Jamestown women's basketball team. The 10th-ranked Jimmies (24-6) have won four straight openers in Sioux City, Iowa. Round 2, or the Sweet 16, has been the issue. But to have another shot at clearing the second-round hurdle, the Jimmies need to beat 22nd-ranked St. Thomas, Fla., Thursday morning at 8:30 a.m. A rematch with fifth-ranked Cardinal-Stritch, Wis. (27-4) likely awaits on Friday -- a game the Jimmies desperately want.
The University of Jamestown baseball team heads into its off day in Arizona with some momentum. The Jimmies swept Dordt College, Iowa on Tuesday, 5-4 and 13-6 to improve to 4-2 at the Tucson Games. The Jimmies pounded out 25 hits in 13 innings on Tuesday. Late Monday night, the Jimmies split with Olivet Nazarene, Ill., winning 11-5 and dropping a tight 2-1 contest. "We've seen a lot of good things through six games and some things we have to get better at, which is what we expected," said UJ head coach Tom Hager.
Strong pitching carried the Jimmies to a sweep on Tuesday in Tucson, Ariz. The University of Jamestown improved to 6-6 on the season by beating Concordia, Neb., 6-2 and Viterbo, Wis., 5-0. Today, the Jimmies face Dordt, Iowa, and Baldwin-Wallace, Ohio. UJ 6, CU 2 Brittany Rheault went all seven in the circle in the opener for the Jimmies. The freshman from West Fargo allowed just one earned run on eight hits with four strikeouts. Rylee Perez went 3-for-4 with three RBI and a double. Emma Keller also had three hits and scored twice.
