Strong pitching carried the University of Jamestown to an unblemished mark in Aberdeen. Brittany Rheault fired 14 strong innings and Hanna Dunnigan tossed 11 as the Jimmie softball team won twice on Saturday and Sunday. The Jimmies (6-2) defeated Waldorf (Iowa) 6-1 and Dakota Wesleyan (S.D.) 5-3 on Saturday before beating Minnesota-Crookston 5-2 and Waldorf 3-1 on Sunday. Over two complete games, Rheault allowed just six hits and four runs combined, while striking out 16 over 14 innings.
A pair of two-point games ended in a split for the Jimmie basketball teams on Saturday at Mayville State. The No. 8-ranked University of Jamestown women overcame an 18-point halftime deficit to cap off a perfect regular season in the North Star Athletic Association. The Jimmies (12-0 NSAA, 26-4 overall) trailed 43-25 at halftime, but erased the whole thing with a 35-point third quarter before pulling out a 81-79 victory.
Everything came together for the University of Jamestown women's indoor track and field team on Saturday. The Jimmies had 10 first-place performances en route to a repeat championship at the North Star Athletic Association meet in Brookings, S.D. The Jimmies, led by triple-winner Samantha VanHeuveln, amassed 179 points, 24 more than runner-up Viterbo. It was a come-from-behind win of sorts as at one point Viterbo led the team standings by 25 points.

Medina-Pingree-Buchanan made it tough for another team to score. This time it ended in a district championship. The Thunder improved to 17-4 on the season with a 36-23 win over Kidder County in the District 6 championship game in Ashley on Tuesday night. "It's not just about playing defense, it's about playing smart defense," M-P-B coach Brett Thielges said. "We've never lost a game because of our defense. Sometimes offense comes and goes, but we feel like our defense will give us a chance to win any game we play."
Jamison Gray finished strong on Monday and turned it into a pair of points for the Jimmies. The University of Jamestown sophomore from Dickinson moved from eighth to fifth in the North Star Athletic Association heptathlon. The fifth-place finish was worth two points for the Jimmies that will count toward their total at the conference meet in Brookings, S.D., on Saturday. The key to the jump was placing fourth in the 1,000-meter run in a time of 2:54.89. Gray ran cross country in the fall for the Jimmies before being sidelined by a severe ankle injury.
Kaiann Arellano earned a trip to the NAIA national indoor track and field meet on Saturday in Fargo. The University of Jamestown sophomore, and a JHS grad, cleared 5 feet, 4 1/4 inches at the Thundering Herd Classic. Arellano joins distance runner Samantha VanHeuveln in earning a trip to Johnson City, Tenn., next month. VanHeuveln qualified for her second event at nationals during the NDSU meet, running a career-best 5:08.66 in the mile. She finished third.
