Tom Hager's boys were ready to rake Tuesday, Feb. 27, in Baldwin City, Kan. University of Jamestown jumped all over Northwestern College (Iowa) to open its spring portion of the NAIA college baseball season. The Jimmies scored seven runs on six hits in the top of the first inning, cruising to a 15-5, seven-inning victory over the Red Raiders. Jamestown wrapped up the day with a 6-3 win in seven innings over Baker (Kan.), improving to a perfect 9-0. The Jimmies went 7-0 in the fall.
Halle Uehran has memories of past North Dakota Class B state basketball tournaments, just none of her own. Some aren't even memories of the sport she plays. "I remember in 2006 when our boys went," said the Medina-Pingree-Buchanan girls basketball senior post, referring to Pingree-Buchanan-Kensal's sixth-place finish 12 years ago at the state 'B' boys tourney. "I was 6 years old, but I was still pumped."
Kennedy Henningsgard's final seven minutes Sunday, Feb. 25, at Harold Newman Arena made the difference. The Valley City State University senior guard converted 7 of 7 at the foul line and produced nine of the final 12 points scored by the Vikings in the championship game of the North Star Athletic Association women's basketball conference tournament. Valley City State won the NSAA tournament title 63-57 over rival University of Jamestown. "Lot's of emotions right now. I'm so happy how our team performed," Henningsgard said. "We came and did what we were supposed to do.
University of Jamestown women's basketball flexed its depth yet again during the semifinals of the North Star Athletic Association conference tournament. Freshman forward Mackenzie Sparby led three Jimmies off the bench in double-digit scoring Saturday, Feb. 24, at Harold Newman Arena. The 6-foot Sparby just missed a double-double with 12 points and nine rebounds, helping Jamestown defeat Mayville State 80-61 at Harold Newman Arena and tie a single-season Jimmie record with the team's 29th win.
JAMESTOWN—There's bittersweet moments, and then there's what Hannah Schiele experienced to end her high school gymnastics career. Immediately after watching her freshman sister Rachel Schiele fall off the balance beam, Hannah was up to perform her final floor exercise as a Jamestown Blue Jay. Rachel Schiele was attempting to defend her title as beam champion Saturday, Feb. 24, during the individual competition of the state gymnastics meet at Jerry Meyer Arena. "I kept watching her, and she started crying," the senior Schiele said. "My heart was broke in two."
Jamestown gymnastics coach Dave Tews was nothing but proud of his team Friday night at Jerry Meyer Arena. The Blue Jays were shooting for silver, but bronze ain't bad. Dickinson ran away in capturing its third-straight North Dakota high school state gymnastics team championship, while Bismarck—just like at the West Region competition—slipped past the Blue Jays for second. Today's individual state competition begins at 1 p.m.
LaMoure-Litchville-Marion's Jamison Kramer left three points at the foul line in the fourth quarter Friday at the Jamestown Civic Center. But luckily the Loboes didn't need them facing Oakes in the quarterfinals of the District 5 boys basketball tournament. Kramer posted a double-double of 24 points and 12 rebounds, while teammate Shay Ness poured 20 through the hoop, helping the Loboes cruise 69-56 over the Tornadoes. L-L-M will play eighth-ranked Carrington in Saturday's semifinals at 6 p.m.
Much has been said of Medina-Pingree-Buchanan's 6-foot senior trio this season in North Dakota Class B girls basketball. But sophomore guard Megan Moser and junior wing Amanda Allen were going to have to step up Thursday in order for the Thunder to get past Carrington for the Region 3 championship at the Jamestown Civic Center. The underclassmen delivered. Moser scored 15 points in the opening three quarters, and Allen buried four 3-pointers on five shots from beyond the arc to help lift second-ranked M-P-B to a 59-50 victory over the fourth-ranked Cardinals.
Edgeley-Kulm-Montpelier is hoping to crash the Class B boys basketball party this postseason. A team just two seasons removed from winning 20 games and advancing all the way to the Region 3 title tilt, E-K-M has won 10 of it's last 12 contests and has to be liking its chances heading into tomorrow's District 5 tournament quarterfinals at the Jamestown Civic Center.
University of Jamestown women's basketball would have made a school of piranha proud Wednesday night at Harold Newman Arena. The seventh-ranked Jimmies weren't playing around in a 100-39 victory over Waldorf University in the quarterfinals of the North Star Athletic Association conference tournament. Jimmie senior guard McKayla Orr led the charge, scoring 12 points and collecting four steals in a game that witnessed the home team clobbering the visitor 28-4 after one quarter. Orr said ample motivation had been provided earlier this week in practice.
