It was a fitting way for Jade Johnson to go out at home. Same was true for his team, too. Johnson, the University of Jamestown soccer star from West Fargo, scored two goals in his program-record 74th appearance as the Jimmies (13-2) had no trouble with Presentation College 9-0 at Rotary Field. "It's hard to believe this was the last one," Johnson said. "It's been a great ride for me. Great teammates. Great coaches. It's been a blast." There's still bigger fish to fry for the Jimmies, though.
Scoring goals has been an issue for the Jimmies this season. They don't give up many, but hadn't scored many either -- until Wednesday, that is. In an impressive display, the University of Jamestown scored five second-half goals to pull away from Presentation College for a 5-1 win on senior night at Rotary Field. It was an important win for the Jimmies (7-6-2), who still have a shot at the No. 3 seed for next month's conference tournament in Billings, Mont. "We needed this one, so it was good to see us be able to get it done," UJ head coach Nick Becker said.

The Jimmies had shown plenty of positive spurts through the first half of the season. Saturday in Madison, S.D., they put it all together. Behind a big game from junior quarterback Beau Eriksson, the Jimmies never trailed in a 37-29 win over Dakota State. The Trojans (3-4) had nearly upset 18th-ranked Dakota Wesleyan the week before, but the Jimmies' defense was sturdy, and a series of big plays by the offense was the difference. "Dakota State is always a tough place to play," University of Jamestown head football coach Shawn Frank said. "I played there. I've coached there many times.
There haven't been many chinks in the armor for the Jimmie volleyball team this season. One improvement head coach Jon Hegerle wanted is better blocking and he got it Saturday night. The 20th-ranked Jimmies (15-4) had 20 block assists and three solos in a 3-0 road sweep of Mayville State. "We worked a ton on (blocking) in practice this week because I feel like we should be better at blocking," Hegerle said.
Nobody would be surprised if the final four of the Fargo Scheels Invitational met up again in Minot next month at the state tournament. In a warmup of sorts, Fargo Shanley was the last team standing, beating Grand Forks Red River 2-0 in the championship match on Saturday at Fargo North High School. Jamestown, the defending tournament champion, had a tough finish to the festivities. The Blue Jays swept Sioux Falls Lincoln in the quarterfinals, but then lost 2-0 to Red River, unable to overcome some shaky officiating in the first set. The third-place match turned into another dandy between t

It'd certainly be understandable if a sense of frustration began to creep in with the University of Jamestown football team. But head coach Shawn Frank does not feel that at all. "When you're sitting in the locker room after a game, I don't know if frustration is the right word, or disappointment, because we all want the same thing and that's to win. It's a results-orientated business," he said. "Last week, there were too many positives to take a harsh view.
Valley City State again showed improvement, but not enough to upset the Jimmies. The 20th-ranked University of Jamestown volleyball team closed out a four-set win in dominant fashion, taking the...
