Slow starts at tournaments have been a problem for the Jimmie volleyball team this season. The issue arose again, although not unexpectedly. Seventh-ranked Northwestern College, a seasoned national tournament team, swept the University of Jamestown in the program's debut match at nationals in Sioux City, Iowa, on Tuesday night. The Jimmies struggled early, put up a fight in the third, but fell 25-19, 25-14, 25-23. "Am I surprised at what happened? No, this has kind of been our M.O.," Jamestown head coach Jon Hegerle said. "Northwestern is a very good team.

Happy just to be there? No, that's not the approach the University of Jamestown volleyball team is taking on its first ever trip to the NAIA national tournament. The 18th-ranked Jimmies begin pool play today against seventh-ranked Northwestern College, Iowa (31-3) at 5:45 p.m., with designs of staying beyond Thursday. "Our goal is to get out of pool play. That's important to us, but we know it will take a lot of doing," said junior standout Alaina Brown. "It's great to get this far, but I definitely feel like we don't have a sense of just being happy getting to go.
FARGO -- South Dakota State is still blue and gold and North Dakota State is still green and gold. The Jackrabbits haven't changed their offense in several years and neither has NDSU. SDSU will try to get Zach Zenner some rushing yards Saturday in the Division I FCS second-round playoff game at Gate City Bank Field at the Fargodome.
Once-beaten Northern State slowly pulled away from a game effort from the University of Jamestown on Monday night in Aberdeen. The 6-1 Wolves shot 56.7 percent, making 34 of their 60 shots en route to an 88-71 win. It was an exhibition game for the Jimmies, meaning it did not count in the standings.

There haven't been many scabs to pick at for the University of Jamestown volleyball team this season. But if you had to dig deep, slow starts against top-notch competition might be the only area of concern. That's of particular importance as the 18th-ranked Jimmies prepare for the NAIA national tournament final site next week in Sioux City, Iowa. The Jimmies (25-6) play No. 7 Northwestern, Iowa (31-3) at 5:45 on Tuesday, No. 6 Missouri Baptist (34-3) at 8 p.m. on Wednesday and 19th-ranked Indiana Wesleyan (33-7) at 8 p.m.
