Not many teams beat Minot. In fact, Jamestown gymnastics coach Dave Tews couldn't remember the last time his team did it, but they pulled it off Friday night. The Blue Jays finished behind only the state's other gymnastics powerhouse — Dickinson — at a six-team meet at the Jamestown Gymnastics Club. The Blue Jays' 140.15 was a season-high, beating Minot (137.425) by a comfortable margin. "It was one of those where we performed well and (Minot) was a little off," Tews said. "We did a lot of things really well. It wasn't a fluke. Our kids were solid."
Pins were the primary method of victory in Minot's win over Jamestown on Thursday night. But the home team still had its own highlights against the No. 5 team in the state. Noah Braun started off the dual with a major decision, while win-machine Paxton Mewes and heavyweight Jason Schulte notched six-point victories to top the night for the Blue Jays. The veteran Magicians left with a 57-19 win in a dual held at the middle school.
Makenzie Bebo might be shooting her way into some more playing time. Already a key reserve off the bench for the 10th-ranked University of Jamestown women's basketball team, the junior from St. Michael, Minn., entered Monday's matinee at the Civic Center as the team's leading long-range shooter. Bebo only helped her sparkling 3-point percentage against Ashford Univeristy of Iowa. After missing her first attempt from deep, Bebo drained her next six en route to 21 points in a 72-46 victory.
FARGO—Josh Kittell was playing quarterback the last time the Jimmie football team had a winning record. That was in 2008. Now, Kittell is in charge of bringing his alma mater back to that level. A 2008 graduate, Kittell was announced as new head coach of the University of Jamestown on Tuesday at a press conference at the school's physical therapy building in south Fargo.
Best to anyone's knowledge, head gymnastics coach Dave Tews has never missed a meet in his more than 35 years of coaching. Tuesday night, the show went on without the JHS legend, who was out sick with the flu. His team did him proud in hosting the annual Christmas meet as the Blue Jays prevailed over Fargo Davies, Aberdeen and Fargo with a score of 137.3 points.

Just a few miles from lots of fun, the Jimmies treated their time on the court as a business trip. After a hard-fought 79-70 win over Menlo College on Saturday, the 10th-ranked University of Jamestown women's basketball rolled to a California sweep on Sunday with an 83-60 victory over CSU-Maritime in Vallejo. Today, the Jimmies will tour notable sites in San Francisco like the Golden Gate Bridge and Alcatraz and it'll be well earned, said head coach Greg Ulland. "The one thing from the weekend is how they handled everything — all the travel we've had, having finals last week, gettin
Perennially among the deepest teams in the state, few can match Minot in quantity. But Thursday night at the JHS pool, the Blue Jays proved they can compete with the Magicians in quality. Jamestown won seven of the 12 events in their season debut against Minot to provide plenty of optimism right out of the chute. "It was really exciting to be able to compete like that against a powerhouse team like Minot," JHS coach Ben Smith said. "It was a really positive performance for us."
It's been a quick turnaround for the Valley City State men's basketball team this season. After a rough 2014-15 season, coach Jeff Kaminsky overhauled the roster and the results so far can not be disputed. At 11-2 heading into tonight's exhibition game against UND at Grand Forks, the Vikings are just one win away from matching last season's entire total. "I think when you have good players who are committed to playing hard and playing together, that's usually a good combination," Kaminsky said. "I liked the guys we had last year, but it just wasn't the right mix.
It's been a season of bus rides for the University of Jamestown women's basketball team — long bus rides. Coach Greg Ulland's 10th-ranked Jimmies have already logged nearly 2,000 miles on the road. This weekend, however, they'll take a step up in means of transportation as they fly to northern California for two games. It'll be the third long trip during Ulland's six-year tenure.
