Someone forgot to tell Jackson Schauer to take it easy on his buddy Tuesday night at Harold Newman Arena. Schauer wrapped up a 16-1 technical fall over freshman Dylan Kislia to end the first period at 165 pounds. The effort helped University of Jamestown men's wrestling to a 29-15 dual victory over the Itasca Community College Vikings of Grand Rapids, Minn. Schauer, a sophomore for the Jimmies, and Kislia know each other well. "Actually, the kid I wrestled tonight was my high school teammate," said Schauer, a native of Grand Rapids. "So that was kinda cool."
Jamestown boys hockey is starting to find its stride after Christmas break. After taking wins over both Bottineau-Rugby and Dickinson this past weekend, the Blue Jays kept plugging away Tuesday night in Mandan with an 8-3 victory over the Braves. The win gave Jamestown three more points in the West Region, currently tying it with Bismarck Century for the lead in conference points at 15. Senior forward Devin Hofmann posted a hat trick and tallied five total points. Hofmann leads the Blue Jays in both goals scored (16) and points (24).
Brett Harris and University of Jamestown men's hockey put a solid start to the new year to bed Sunday afternoon at John L. Wilson Arena. The sophomore forward's hat trick led the Jimmies in dismantling ACHA Division II Williston State College 10-1 to complete the weekend sweep. Jamestown defeated the Tetons 8-3, also at Wilson, on Saturday.
Seth Nelson has grown into quite a basketball player since last winter. The Carrington sophomore sprouted from 5-foot-11 in stature to 6-3 and into the Cardinals' starting lineup. Nelson buried five 3-pointers Saturday night at the Jamestown Civic Center, part of a 20-point, 11-rebound performance in the championship game of the Stutsman County boys basketball tournament. Carrington defended its Stutsman title, defeating Edgeley-Kulm-Montpelier 72-58.
Lane Hanson bricked a dunk in transition Thursday at the Jamestown Civic Center. His Edgeley-Kulm-Montpelier Rebels still defeated South Border 55-38 in the opening round of the Stutsman County boys basketball tournament, but the 6-foot-5 Northern State University football recruit wasn't going to make the same mistake Friday against Napoleon-Gackle-Streeter in the semifinals.
The defending state balance beam champion had both judges in agreement Friday during the annual KC Invite at Jamestown Gymnastics Club. Jamestown High School freshman Rachel Schiele dazzled during her best event, setting what Blue Jay gymnastics coach Dave Tews believes will probably be the top beam score in the state this season. The paddle read 9.7 shortly after Schiele's routine.
Carrington boys basketball rid itself of a bad tasting, two-game skid Thursday at the Jamestown Civic Center. The Cardinals handled Medina-Pingree-Buchanan 83-38 in the opening round of the Stutsman County Tournament and will face Kidder County in tonight's semifinals at 7:30. Carrington's two losses coming in dropped a talented Cardinal team (4-2) out of the state's top 10 rankings in Class B. But senior guard Jayden Shipman believes the polls haven't seen the last of his Cardinals.
Colten Jangula plays more of a defensive role this season for Napoleon-Gackle-Streeter boys basketball. So when his shot from halfcourt ripped through the net to end the first quarter Thursday against Midkota at the Jamestown Civic Center, the sophomore forward was just as startled as everyone else. "I was honestly surprised," Jangula said. "When I looked up right away, I thought it was an airball."
Carrington boys basketball coach Tim Ranum is still looking for four quarters of basketball out of the Cardinals. He's hoping he finds it starting today in Jamestown. Carrington (3-2) plays Medina-Pingree-Buchanan (1-3) this evening at 6 p.m. in the third quarterfinal game of the annual Stutsman County Tournament at the Civic Center. "We're a little disappointed with the way we've been playing the last couple games," Ranum said. "We just want to play better. We want to prove something and play to our potential."
Lofton Klabunde and the fifth-ranked Minot Magicians had their hands full Tuesday night at Jamestown's Jerry Meyer Arena. Klabunde capped a 12-4 Minot run with a 3-pointer late in the second half, flipping a 55-54 Jamestown advantage to a 66-59 Minot lead with close to 2 minutes remaining in regulation. The 6-foot-3 senior forward filled the stat sheet with 19 points, six rebounds, three assists and three steals, helping Minot escape Jamestown with a 73-66 victory.
