There have been a number of hurdles thrown at the University of Jamestown cross country teams this season. Strong performances today at the North Star Athletic Association meet in Dickinson would make up for an up and down season for both squads. Dickinson State and Viterbo are favored in the women's race, while Waldorf is pegged to win on the men's side, although the Jimmies have a handful of runners capable of challenging for a trip to nationals.
The University of Jamestown football team can finish the season with some serious momentum. Riding a two-game winning streak, the Jimmies are in Forest City, Iowa today to face struggling Waldorf at 1 p.m. A win would set up a significant season finale at home against 16th-ranked and playoff-bound Dickinson State. "Our guys are starting to understand what we need to do. I think we're maturing as a football team," UJ coach Josh Kittell said. "We've had a good week. Our players have been locked in."
A little home-cooking is coming at the right time for the University of Jamestown volleyball team. After three long weekends on the road, against top-notch competition, the 23rd-ranked Jimmies took care of Presentation College 3-0 at the Hansen Center on Wednesday night. "Last weekend was kinda like a reality check for us," said senior outside hitter Heather Bachman of the Jimmies' 1-2 road trip. "It showed us where we are and where we need to be to achieve the goals we've set for ourselves.
Dean Stork expected to have a competitive team this season, but this? When the latest ACHA Division I poll was released on Wednesday, the University of Jamestown hockey team rocketed up the rankings to No. 6 nationally. It's been a banner debut campaign for the Jimmies, who are 9-3-0-1 in all competitions and 5-3-1 against ACHA D-I teams. Stork has continually deflected praise about his program's rapid rise, instead choosing to share in the glory.

Win-loss wise the Jimmies won't get any credit for what they did Tuesday night, but it should raise a few eyebrows. Playing an exhibition game in Bismarck, the University of Jamestown routed the NCAA Division II Marauders 80-53. It was an exhibition game for the Jimmies, who would have had to declare prior to the game that it was not in order to get credit for the win.
Tuesday night's exhibition opener was a stiff test for the University of Jamestown men's basketball team. Former NDCAC and DAC-10 conference-mate University of Mary, a final four team in the premier conference in NCAA Division II last season, was at the Jamestown Civic Center as both teams kicked off the new campaign. While the Jimmies struggled offensively, it was still an enjoyable night for the nice crowd on hand to see two former rivals open the season against each other.

Ellendale-Edgeley-Kulm pulled a rabbit out of a hat on Saturday in quarterfinal play of the Class A playoffs. Down 41-28, the Thunder scored two touchdowns in the final five minutes to stun No. 1-ranked Larimore on its home field. "It came down to our kids not quitting," E-E-K coach Jon Schiele said. "They kept rallying and pushing. There's no quit in these boys. They played awesome. We're really proud of what they've been able to do." Larimore entered the game undefeated at 9-0.
