Low in numbers, the two Jamestown High School golfers playing in the state meet made a big impact on Tuesday. Austin Rene and Nick Stockert each shot 77s to finish in a six-way tie for seventh at Fargo's Edgewood Golf Course. It was a strong day for the two Blue Jays, who each shot two strokes under their season average on a cool, wet and windy day on a challenging course. "Both of them hung tough relative to the field and overall I thought played pretty well," said JHS coach Dean Kraft.
Almost eight years ago, my youngest daughter was born in the NICU at a hospital in Fargo. One of the nurses often caring for her was originally from Jamestown. Occasionally, she'd share recollections of Jamestown. Having moved away after high school she said she'd rarely returned since her family had moved away.
Sean Johnson has lived all over the place. With a father that was in the Navy, and after 30 years working in collegiate athletics, Johnson has seen many parts of the country.

Hewitt, just a sophomore, fired a three-hit shutout as Carrington blanked Lewis & Clark/Parshall 2-0 at the Class B state baseball tournament in Mandan. The Cardinals advance to face No. 1 seed Grafton tonight in the semifinals. "To get a shutout in the state tournament, that was a little unexpected," said Hewitt, who also had the key hit in the game. "Anytime you're on the mound you try to give up as little as possible. ...

Samantha Goff has a busy summer ahead. But her focus was squarely on the 3,000-meter steeplechase at the NAIA national outdoor championships in steamy Gulf Shores, Ala. After posting a personal-best time in the semifinals on Friday, Goff delivered again on Saturday to earn her first individual All-American award. Goff, a steady performer since arriving on campus three years ago, posted a strong seventh-place time of 11 minutes, 3.95 seconds in the 14-person final.

Sam Goff found her groove in Alabama on Friday. Now, she's hoping to do it one more time. The University of Jamestown junior posted a personal-record time of 10 minutes, 58.70 seconds to earn a spot in the steeplechase final at the NAIA outdoor track and field national championships in Gulf Shores, Ala.

Goff advanced to last year's final, but fell early and struggled. Today's race will be chal
