Everyone's heard the phrase, "There's no 'I' in team." Well, coincidentally or not, there's no "I" in "LaMoure Loboes," either. An unselfish blend of both under and upperclassmen are leading the Loboes back to the Class B state volleyball tournament this week in Minot. LaMoure kicks off its second state tournament appearance in three years on Thursday, facing Finley-Sharon-Hope-Page at 8 p.m. inside the Minot State Dome. LaMoure rolled all the way to the state championship match in 2013, where it fell to Northern Cass 3-1.
The University of Jamestown volleyball team stands one match away from earning a second straight NAIA national tournament berth. The Jimmies upended Bellevue University 3-2 in the North Star Athletic Association Final Four in La Crosse, Wisc., on Friday. Jamestown now faces third-ranked and tournament host Viterbo University (35-4) this evening at 5:30 in the NSAA tournament championship match. The Jimmies (20-10) were swept 3-0 by Viterbo on Oct. 17 at the Grand View tournament in Des Moines, Iowa.
This year's district volleyball tournaments were an accurate measuring stick when it came to evaluating the strength of Region 3. The LaMoure Loboes, the champions of District 5, face the South Border Mustangs, the champions of District 6, in the Region 3 title match on Thursday at Napoleon High School. LaMoure was forced to sweat out a 3-2 victory over the Medina-Pingree-Buchanan Thunder in Tuesday's semifinals, while South Border swept the Carrington Cardinals 3-0. LaMoure (34-3-1) rallied back from a 2-1 match deficit to defeat the Thunder.
Ben Smith and the Blue Jay girls swimming and diving team know the meet that matters most comes this weekend. Jamestown battled to a fifth-place team finish at the West Region meet in Williston on Saturday, putting up 199 points in the eight-team meet. But all eyes have shifted to state, which will be held this Friday and Saturday at the BSC Aquatics and Wellness Center in Bismarck. The Blue Jays are sending 12 athletes to state this weekend after adding one more in Williston.
Logan Brown is taking his newfound success within the Jimmie offense in stride. The junior guard from Roseville, Minn., has taken on a large chunk of the scoring duties of late, and it's been paying huge dividends for the University of Jamestown men's basketball team. Brown's 20 points led the Jimmies past 13th-ranked Dordt College 82-73 at the Jamestown Civic Center on Friday night. Brown connected for a team-leading, and career-high, 21 points during the Jimmie's 80-69 win over No.
Near Leal, N.D. — LaMoure has five starters on its high school volleyball team listed at either 5-foot-5 or shorter. Defensive specialist Alayna Jordahl, one of the Loboes' five seniors, measures in the smallest at 4-11. Be that as it may, the Loboes play big-time volleyball. LaMoure won its third consecutive District 5 championship on Monday, topping the Carrington Cardinals 3-2 in the title match at Barnes County North High School. "It's hard when you're my height, I guess. I get made fun of a lot," Jordahl laughed.
CARRINGTON -- It didn't take Walker Carr long to get back into the swing of things at Stadium 76. The senior linebacker returned an interception 65 yards for a Carrington touchdown in the second half to put Saturday's Class A state quarterfinal playoff game against Larimore out of reach. It was one of eight combined turnovers by the two teams as Carrington held on for a 28-14 victory on a blustery Halloween afternoon. Carr showed no ill-effects from a thigh injury that kept him sidelined for Carrington's final three games of the regular season.
There aren't a whole lot of tricks surrounding the undefeated Carrington football team. In Cardinal country, an abundance of treats put together a regular season that was as dominating as they come, and it's a luxury that's about to become sweeter just in time for Halloween. Senior running back Walker Carr will be back in the mix this afternoon for the second-ranked Cardinals, as Carrington (8-0) hosts fourth-ranked Larimore (8-1) in the Class A state quarterfinals at Stadium 76.
Alaina Brown is leaving it all on the court as her senior season with the Jimmie volleyball team is nearing the end of the line. Leading the visiting Clarke University Crusaders two games to zero on Friday night, Brown sprung and collided with the Hansen Center floor attempting to dig a Crusader shot that reached the back row. It's simply an instilled reaction after years of playing competitively. Brown, an outside hitter, along with fellow senior Kaia Buck, will be recognized tonight when the Jimmies face Dakota State at 7 p.m.
