Jamestown High School's inaugural Blue Jay Athletic Hall of Fame class is a who's who of JHS athletics. The 20-member group will be enshrined this week during homecoming, starting with a recognition ceremony planned for Friday's pep rally at 10 a.m. at the high school. Jamestown High School activities director Jim Roaldson explained the time for a Blue Jay hall of fame had finally come.
Austin Rene fired a 4-under par 68 at Jamestown Country Club on Monday, leading the University of Jamestown at the annual Jimmie Fall Classic. The tournament's low round placed Rene, a sophomore from Jamestown, in a three-way tie for medalist honors at 144 with the Jimmies' Benji Miller and University of Manitoba's Aaron McIntyre after two rounds.
Cole Sonstebo was at the heart of last season's success under former University of Jamestown head hockey coach Dean Stork. The defenseman tallied seven goals and 10 assists, helping the Jimmies win 20 games and soar as high as No. 6 in the ACHA Division I hockey rankings. It was surreal success for a first-year program. But after one season of competition, Stork is now gone and his returning skaters have set nationals as the goal with new coach Cole Bell behind the boards. The Jimmies open the season Friday at Midland University (Neb.).
Jamestown freshman cross country runner Meghan Ford won Saturday's Devils Lake Invite at Grahams Island. Ford highlighted second-place finishes by both the Blue Jay boys and girls teams. Carrington's Payton Smith won the boys' 5K race. "It was the first time they've hosted a cross country meet in Devils Lake in over 30 years," Jamestown coach Ken Gardner said. "Meghan went out conservatively early on and she ended up winning the race by a minute."
Phoebe Edwards has been doing her homework. The University of Jamestown soccer sophomore from South Australia has found herself in the thick of the Jimmie women's offense this season. Being moved from central defender to center forward has a tendency to do that. "It's been quite weird," Edwards explained. "Play center back all my life and then this season coach decided that I'm a 9.

Three straight losses to a few of the best the NAIA has to offer this season hasn't got the Jimmie football team singing the blues.
Defense has to turn it up when conditions turn south. Jamestown High School's Carter Moser came up with two of the Blue Jays' three second-half interceptions Friday at Ernie Gates Field, preserving a 14-0 win over visiting Turtle Mountain. The game, which had its start delayed by around 45 minutes due to lightning, was played in driving rain throughout. "We watched film a lot and they were passing quite a bit, so we expected it," said Moser, a junior defensive back. "Our defense played great. We just play hard."
