There haven't been many chinks in the armor for the Jimmie volleyball team this season. One improvement head coach Jon Hegerle wanted is better blocking and he got it Saturday night. The 20th-ranked Jimmies (15-4) had 20 block assists and three solos in a 3-0 road sweep of Mayville State. "We worked a ton on (blocking) in practice this week because I feel like we should be better at blocking," Hegerle said.
Nobody would be surprised if the final four of the Fargo Scheels Invitational met up again in Minot next month at the state tournament. In a warmup of sorts, Fargo Shanley was the last team standing, beating Grand Forks Red River 2-0 in the championship match on Saturday at Fargo North High School. Jamestown, the defending tournament champion, had a tough finish to the festivities. The Blue Jays swept Sioux Falls Lincoln in the quarterfinals, but then lost 2-0 to Red River, unable to overcome some shaky officiating in the first set. The third-place match turned into another dandy between t

"When you're sitting in the locker room after a game, I don't know if frustration is the right word, or disappointment, because we all want the same thing and that's to win. It's a results-orientated business," he said. "Last week, there were too many positives to take a harsh view.
Valley City State again showed improvement, but not enough to upset the Jimmies. The 20th-ranked University of Jamestown volleyball team closed out a four-set win in dominant fashion, taking the...
There are a number of reasons the University of Jamestown soccer team gives up so few goals. Good players, sound defensive system, or as Kody Duncan put it: "We hate giving up goals almost more than we hate losing." Duncan and the Jimmies haven't experienced much of either this season. Through 12 games, the 11-1 Jimmies have scored 42 goals and conceded eight. Duncan, one of the starting back four for the Jimmies, capsulized it into the three Cs. "Commitment, communication, chemistry. ... We have those things and we work well together," the senior from West Fargo said.
Fearnside leads Jimmie wrestlers Amy Fearnside placed first at 116 pounds at the Warrior Open on Saturday. Fearnside, a junior on the University of Jamestown women's wrestling team, beat four Oklahoma City University wrestlers, giving up just four points in three matches. Kim Cardenas (101), Shai Mason (143), Anna Naylor (155) and Kay Ci-Bele (170) each went 2-1 and placed third for the Jimmies. Rosie Guzman (109), Dajan Treder (130), Adrena Ng (155) and Renee Samano (170) all placed third. Rebekah Johnson (123) and Alicia Soto (130) were fourth. Kelsey Gray went 1-2 at 116.
