The Blue Jay girls swimming and diving team hung tough with a deep Fargo Davies squad at the JHS pool on Tuesday. Jamestown won six of 12 events, a number coach Ben Smith was happy with, but the Eagles were ultimately able to clip the Jays 103-83. "We started the meet off really well by winning the first three events, and winning the medley relay really set the tone for the meet," Smith said. "We were right there with them." Jamestown's Kailey Alber, Taylor Bradley, Camille Kawasaki and Madison Mandan kicked off the evening with a winning time of 2:01.67 in the 200-yard medley relay.
It was a disappointing weekend for the University of Jamestown volleyball team at the Grand View tournament in Des Moines, Iowa. After jumping out to a promising start on Friday with a 3-1 win over NSAA conference opponent Bellevue University, the Jimmies ended up dropped their remaining three matches. Jamestown wrapped up the two-day tournament on Saturday with a 3-0 loss to No.
There won't be any sleeping in this morning for the University of Jamestown volleyball team. But the Jimmies should get a good idea of what they're made of, as both the snooze button and the No. 1-ranked Viterbo V-Hawks will be enemies of the orange and black. The Jimmies and V-Hawks square off at 9 a.m. in Des Moines, Iowa, to kick off day No. 2 of the stacked Grand View Tournament. "It's not ideal," University of Jamestown head volleyball coach Jon Hegerle quipped about today's game time. Jamestown, however, could be meeting up with the country's No.
The players and coaches knew it from the start, and now so does everyone else. Medina-Pingree-Buchanan locked up the No. 1 seed for the upcoming District 6 volleyball tournament with a 3-0 sweep over Strasburg-Zeeland in Medina on Tuesday night. It was another brick in the wall for a Thunder team that is clearly in the running to capture the Region 3 crown. The Thunder are currently 26-3 overall, they've ran the District 6 table (5-0) and they're currently 11-0 in head-to-head regular-season matches. "We're playing really well together right now," M-P-B coach Jacie Connell said.
The ball found the back of the net just once at the Jimmie Soccer Field on Friday. University of Jamestown senior forward Jack Humphries got to the 18 behind the opposing defenders and lofted a ball over and past Bellevue's charging goalkeeper Ben Martin with 6 minutes, 55 seconds left in the first half. The only problem for Humphries and the Jimmies, however, was that the referee's flag was in the air. Humphries was offside, and Jamestown and the No.
An early two-goal deficit was too much for the Blue Jay boys soccer team to completely overcome at Rotary Field on Tuesday night. Bismarck Legacy junior midfielder Austin Ellingson whistled in back-to-back goals in the opening six minutes of play, but Jamestown juniors Beau Waldock and Braden Sherfy remained tied for the team lead in goals and helped Jamestown escape with a West Region point Waldock's tally brought the Jays to within one at the half, and Sherfy leveled the score with nine minutes to play as Jamestown tied Legacy 2-2.
The color pink wears well on senior Blue Jay soccer captain Chris Hare. Jamestown donned the brightly-colored kits for the team's breast cancer awareness night at Rotary Field on Thursday, where Hare erupted for a pair of goals and an assist during a dominating 4-0 victory over the Mandan Braves. The performance earned Hare Jamestown's "Man of the Match" honors. "We just came out feeling like we should have this one," Hare said.
A malfunction at the weigh scale caused a whirlwind of confusion last Saturday night at Jamestown Speedway. In the end, the right man was awarded credit for having won the largest race of his career. But the post-win atmosphere was understandably tense for Justin Schempp at the 44th annual Jamestown Speedway Stock Car Stampede. "(Track officials) pulled me around to weigh, like four times, and I weighed light," Schempp said.
Lisbon's Jonny Carter didn't have a WISSOTA 100 to remember, but he can't say that about the Jamestown Speedway Stock Car Stampede. After bending up his No.
