The Carrington girls basketball team's standout defense is allowing its offense a chance to find itself early in the season. Carrington didn't allow more than 44 points to any of the three teams it faced during the Stutsman County tournament held at the Jamestown Civic Center over the weekend. Carrington turned up the hustle against Edgeley-Kulm-Montpelier in Saturday's third-place game, and for the most part it kept the Rebels' big two of senior Olivia Anderson and freshman Katie Entzi out of their half-court offense and in check. Meanwhile, Carrington senior Kauri Hochhalter posted a doub
Confidence goes a long way on the basketball court. Once one shot fell for the Midkota Mustangs, it seemed nearly the rest followed against Warwick during the seventh-place game of the Stutsman County girls basketball tournament at the Jamestown Civic Center on Saturday. Sophomore Joslyn Hoyt dropped in four 3-pointers and scored 18 points, while the Mustangs shot 50 percent in the game, and Midkota topped the Warriors 62-49 to win its first game of the season. The Mustangs went 8-of-15 as a team from 3-point range in the contest. "That's what these girls have needed with there outside sho
Motivation wasn't an issue for the Medina-Pingree-Buchanan girls basketball team on Saturday. One year removed from falling to Carrington in the championship game of the Stutsman County tournament, the Thunder made sure a similar fate wouldn't be suffered in the this year's title tilt at the Jamestown Civic Center. Fresh legs and a suffocating full-court press didn't allow the Ellendale Cardinals much of a chance.
Medina-Pingree-Buchanan's Madi Moldenhauer put her team on her back and said, "I got this," at the Jamestown Civic Center on Friday night. The senior forward went 5-of-5 at the free-throw line and scored 13 points — all in the fourth period — to help the Thunder erase a 10-point deficit against Edgeley-Kulm-Montpelier during semifinal night of the Stutsman County tournament. M-P-B outscored E-K-M 21-6 over the final six minutes to storm into tonight's championship game with a 60-55 victory over the Rebels.
Kaitlyn Schimke isn't asked to do a whole lot of scoring, but that doesn't mean she can't step up in big-time spots. The senior Ellendale guard buried a dagger from 3-point land in overtime against the Carrington Cardinals at the Jamestown Civic Center on Friday. It was only her second field goal during semifinal night of the Stutsman County girls basketball tournament, but Ellendale used it to hold on and defeat the defending tourney champs 44-43 in OT. Ellendale faces Medina-Pingree-Buchanan in tonight's championship at 6:30. "It was pretty exciting," Schimke said.
South Border's Kayla Rohr can no longer say she's not known for her scoring. The junior guard erupted for five 3-pointers and 22 points to help spur the South Border Mustangs past the Midkota Mustangs 49-44 in consolation play of the Stutsman County tournament at the Jamestown Civic Center on Friday. "I worked on my 3 this summer a lot, and it came in handy this game," Rohr smiled. "It was fun." Rohr buried four treys and scored 15 of her 22 in the first half. She finished 6-for-8 from the field and 5-for-7 from 3-point range. It was an offensive turnaround on Friday for Midkota.
The Medina-Pingree-Buchanan girls got its season back on track Thursday at the Jamestown Civic Center. The Thunder rattled Midkota into 30 turnovers and cruised to a 53-19 victory to open the Stutsman County Tournament.
Warwick swung its best punch at the defending Stutsman County girls basketball tournament champions on Thursday. But Carrington was able to weather the storm. Junior Maara Nelson scored a game-high 18 points, while swiping five steals and dishing out four assists, helping the Cardinals defeat the Warriors 54-43 in the opening round of the Stutsman County Tournament at the Jamestown Civic Center. Warwick scored the first five points of the game and led Carrington 14-11 after the first period.
Olivia Anderson is ready to make the most of her senior basketball season. The Edgeley-Kulm-Montpelier senior left her mark on Thursday's opening round of the Stutsman County girls basketball tournament at the Jamestown Civic Center. The Rebels' No. 23 scored 23, while also leading her team with 16 rebounds, six blocks and three steals, helping E-K-M defeat South Border 47-35. The Rebels move on to face Medina-Pingree-Buchanan in tonight's semifinals at 6. "We just wanted to come out as strong as we did the first game (against South Border), and I think we did that," Anderson said.
A big change could be coming to Jamestown Speedway. Track officials will be meeting with local WISSOTA Modified drivers tonight to receive feedback regarding a proposed switch from WISSOTA Modifieds to IMCA Modifieds moving forward. The idea of switching sanctioning bodies for Jamestown's A-mod class has been a hot topic of debate the past few years.
