Turnovers, and lots of them, did in the University of Jamestown women's basketball team on Saturday. In a top 10 matchup in the NAIA, the Jimmies committed a whopping 35 turnovers and No. 7 Concordia, Neb., pulled away for a 90-72 win at the Civic Center. The Bulldogs entered ranked ninth, but are surely to head north in the polls after beating No. 17 Mayville State Friday and the seventh-ranked Jimmies Saturday. "We're very pleased with the results," said Concordia coach Drew Olson.
The regular season came to an end for the Jimmie volleyball team the same way it's gone pretty much all fall -- with two more wins. The 18th-ranked team in the NAIA made a long weekend haul south, beating Mount Marty College (S.D) on Saturday and Briar Cliff (Iowa) on Sunday. The Jimmies, now 22-6 on the season, will wait for the North Star Athletic Association semifinals on Nov. 12 for their next match. "I thought it was two really nice wins for us against two teams on the rise," said Jamestown head coach Jon Hegerle.
Katie Conlon ran a personal-best time at the New York City Marathon on Sunday. As a result, the former star runner for the Blue Jays, Jimmies and Oregon Ducks finished 21st among all women and 10th among American women in Sunday's race. Conlon's time of 2 hours, 47 minutes and 28 seconds was about three seconds faster than her previous best time of 2:50.10 at the Boston Marathon in April. Jim Clark, Conlon's uncle and cross country and track and field coach while she was an 11-time All-American for the Jimmies, reported Katie ran an almost identical pace in each half of the 26.2-mile marath

Games came fast and furious early in the season for the University of Jamestown men's soccer team. The pace has fallen off down the stretch, which is partially by design and part necessity, said coach Tommy Nienhaus. "There are a number of factors why the schedule is the way it is. It's not perfect, but for the most part it sets up favorably for us," he said. "I like to increase the quality of opponents as the season goes on.
The Blue Jay and Jimmie volleyball teams take their winning ways on the road tonight. Jamestown High School appears locked into the No. 2 spot in the West Region, barring being upset, or having someone other than themselves beat Bismarck Century, which is very unlikely. Century owns a 31-3 mark and Jamestown is the only team to beat the Patriots in a five-set match this season. Tonight, the 24-8 Blue Jays play at Bismarck St.
FARGO -- At the halfway point in the Missouri Valley Football Conference standings, North Dakota State and Illinois State are on a criteria collision course. They share first place at 4-0, but do not play each other this season. If each maintain their winning ways, the league's automatic berth to the FCS playoffs would turn to the league's guidebook to determine the champion. The top tiebreaker in this case would be each team's record against common opponents in the league.
MINNEAPOLIS — Next season will mark Dick Berardino's 48th consecutive year in the Boston Red Sox organization. A former big-league coach and longtime minor-league manager now serving as a player-development consultant, Berardino has seen plenty of managerial prospects rise and fall during his long tenure. Torey Lovullo, however, is the real deal, he says. "I like him a lot," Berardino, 77, said Monday of the Red Sox bench coach. "Personality-wise, he handles himself well with players. He's well respected. He's done just about everything in this game.
Medina-Pingree-Buchanan took the first set and nearly the second from Carrington, but the Cardinals leveled it at 1-1 and took control from there in Class B volleyball on Monday. The Thunder won the opener 25-22 before falling in a hotly-contested second set, 28-26. The Cardinals took the next two sets and the match, 25-18, 25-16. Jordan Thomas banged in 20 kills for the Thunder.
