When the Jamestown High School gymnastics team opens the season today in Aberdeen, assistant coach Andrea Bitz will be attempting to fill some pretty big shoes. Longtime head coach Dave Tews is currently away from the program for a medical leave of absence, but there is good news on the horizon. "We're hoping around Christmas he'll get back in there," said Bitz, who has been busy with a bumper crop of gymnasts. "We have a lot of numbers, probably more so at the JV level, but it's great to see a lot of kids involved."

Being young in the West Region in wrestling is a difficult deal. That's the challenge facing the Blue Jays this season and head coach Larry Eslick. However, they aren't going to use being green as a crutch. "We're not going to use that as an excuse any day of the week," Eslick said. "Our kids want to do it right. They want to go out and battle. "Technically, they're learning things now that when they become upperclassmen are going to pay off."
