Sarah Azure took a few moments to reflect following Tuesday's conclusion of the Class A state girls golf meet. The Jamestown High School junior finished ninth individually for a second straight year, helping lead the Blue Jays to eighth out of 12 teams at Mandan's Prairie West Golf Course. The performance brought mixed emotions for the Blue Jays—who return everyone in 2017—after posting back-to-back state runner-up finishes in 2014 and 2015.
Jamestown High School tuned up for this weekend's West Region cross country meet at Saturday's Rugby Booster Club Invitational. The Blue Jay girls captured second out of 27 teams, while the boys placed fifth out of 30 teams. Blue Jay coach Ken Gardner explained getting out and running against different competition in the mostly Class B field in Rugby is always a good thing. The West Region meet is scheduled for Saturday in Bismarck. "It was a nice meet for us to get up to and compete against a lot of different runners," Gardner said. "Our runners overall ran well."
Its back was squarely against the wall at the Hansen Center on Friday night, but the University of Jamestown volleyball team had been there before. Down 13-10 in the deciding fifth set to 18th-ranked Bellevue University, the 22nd-ranked Jimmies erupted to score six of the final seven points en route to upsetting the Bruins 16-14 in thrilling fashion. The Jimmies pulled off nearly an identical feat almost one year ago to the day. Jamestown took down No. 14 Dordt 15-13 after trailing 13-9 in the final frame at the Hansen Center on Oct. 1, 2015.
Stopping a shot from striking the net from 12 yards out is no easy task. But Jamestown High School's Adam Reiten is starting to make it look old hat. The senior goalkeeper denied a second penalty kick for the second straight match at Rotary Field on Thursday, and the Blue Jays qualified for the Class A state soccer tournament with a 4-0 victory over Mandan.
Jamestown began the night in command of the No. 2 spot in the West Region boys soccer standings over Bismarck High. The Blue Jays remained there following Tuesday's 2-2 draw against the Demons at Rotary field. Austin Shafer scored twice for the Jays in the first 40 minutes, but Bismarck stormed back with a pair of second-half goals to avoid losing three crucial conference points to Jamestown with just a pair of regular season matches left to play.
Conditions were far from ideal for the Jimmies on Monday in Minnesota, but the entire field was in the same boat. A saturated Wedgewood Cove Golf Course in Albert Lee played long, and high winds added to the difficulty during the opening round of the North Star Athletic Association conference tournament. University of Jamestown's Jacob Rice and Nathan Kapaun each fired a six-over par 78 and are tied for fourth, just two shots off the lead. The Jimmie men are currently in third, nine shots off Bellevue University's team score of 308.
The Blue Jays accomplished what they set out to achieve on Monday at Mandan's Prairie West Golf Course. Jamestown's girls golf team is headed back to the Class A state tournament. Kaitlin Mullowney tied for sixth overall, firing a team-best 88, and the Blue Jays locked up sixth as a team—the final qualifying position—with a round of 387. The Jays edged out Turtle Mountain by four strokes, and finished just three shots behind Bismarck Century in fifth.
