Travis Hafner’s career goals were pretty basic at the beginning. They blossomed into so much more. Hafner — who was born in Jamestown, raised in Sykeston and went on to...
Halls of fame are ordinarily reserved for athletes and coaches at or near the end of their careers. However, there is nothing ordinary about Jocelyne and Monique Lamoureux. Jocelyne Lamoureux-Davidson and Monique Lamoureux will be inducted into the North Dakota Sports Hall of Fame at the Jamestown Civic Center on Saturday, joining Hank Biesiot and Travis Hafner. The banquet begins at 5 p.m.
Hank Biesiot is the second-winningest NAIA college football coach of all-time. An institution at Dickinson State for 41 years, Biesiot spent 38 as head coach, compiling 257 wins. Only Kevin Donley, who coached at four different universities, won more. Biesiot, meanwhile, was a Blue Hawk for life. But by no means does he consider his coaching success to be his most noteworthy achievement. "Being a teacher is my greatest accomplishment," the always understated Biesiot said.
Tanner Dahl and Landon Uetz have been been named NAIA baseball honorable mention All-Americans. It's rare for players from the Northern tier of the NAIA to earn All-American recognition. Dahl, a starting pitcher, and Uetz, who played multiple positions, are the first Jimmies to earn the award since Jesse Ramirez in 2011. Winning 52 games as the Jimmies did this season and climbing as high as No.
More late-game dramatics capped off a stellar season for the Jamestown High School girls soccer team. Alexa Kudrna scored in the 75th minute to lift the Blue Jays to a 1-0 win over Bismarck St. Mary's in the fifth-place game of the state tournament in Mandan on Saturday. It was the second straight 1-0 win for Jamestown, which finished the season with a record of 12-3-2.
JAMESTOWN—West Fargo pitcher Stephi Dullum said she felt the pressure. No team other than the Packers have won a Class A state softball title in North Dakota. Thanks in large part to the junior Dullum, West Fargo's streak lives on. Dickinson put up a good fight, but the Packers prevailed 6-2 on Saturday night at Trapper Field in Jamestown. It's the 19th straight state title overall for West Fargo and eighth in a row since the sport became officially sanctioned in 2009.
Jamestown's season came to an end early Saturday morning, but there was still much to feel good about. Bismarck finished off its 8-1 win over the Blue Jays in loser-out play of the state softball tournament in a game that finished shortly after 9 a.m. Saturday morning at Trapper Field. Wet weather forced the tournament to be suspended Friday afternoon.

It took more than two full games for Jamestown to score its first goal at the state soccer tournament in Mandan. The wait, although longer than hoped, proved worth it. All-state junior forward Emily Reinte booted home the game-winner two minutes into overtime as the Blue Jays advanced to the fifth-place game with a 1-0 victory over West Fargo on Friday afternoon. "It was very exciting," JHS coach Mike Schulz said. "Once you get to the state tournament, all the teams deserve to be here. Every game is going to be against a strong team.
