Colton Carlson swam his best 100-yard breaststroke of the season Thursday at the JHS pool, passing teammate Jonas Flann's top time in the process. The two Jamestown High School seniors currently own the state's fourth and fifth best times in the event, with Carlson's 1 minute, 4.63 seconds leading Flann's 1:04.75. But a little friendly competition has been a good thing, according to Blue Jay swimming and diving coach Ben Smith. The Blue Jays fell 135-51 in a dual against Minot, with Carlson winning the breaststroke.
Sometimes the first half of a basketball game can mimic crawling out of the wrong side of bed. The Jimmie men struggled early Tuesday against visiting Trinity Bible College at Harold Newman Arena. The Lions of the Northern Intercollegiate Athletic Conference led by as many as five points and forced six lead changes in the opening 20 minutes, as University of Jamestown rather sheepishly owned a 37-32 advantage at the break.
Some early spring cleaning is underway at Jamestown Gymnastics Club. The Blue Jays no longer need the dusty sign reading "142.3" cluttering up the joint. Jamestown soared to a season-best 142.75 while hosting the four-team Midwinter Invite on Saturday, smashing a goal the Blue Jays set for themselves dating back to last season. But plenty of work remains for the Jays, which possibly includes the construction of a new motivational message.
University of Jamestown women's basketball got back to business Friday in La Crosse, Wisc. Two days after having its 16-game winning streak snapped by 12th-ranked Dakota Wesleyan at Newman Arena, Jamestown moved to 10-0 in North Star Athletic Association conference play with a convincing 90-52 victory over the V-Hawks.
There's never a good time to pick up simultaneous minor penalties in a boys hockey game, especially trailing 4-3 to start the third period. West Fargo Sheyenne took advantage Thursday night against Jamestown High School. A slashing penalty on the Blue Jays' Parker Stockert, plus a two-minute minor on teammate Devin Hofmann for delay of game—both coming just 23 seconds into the final 17 minutes—provided the break the Mustangs needed at John L. Wilson Arena.
Kynedi Cheeseman broke up her team's perfect night at the foul line in the fourth quarter Wednesday at Harold Newman Arena. But after posting a game-high 27 points in knocking off sixth-ranked University of Jamestown on its home court, it's safe to assume Cheeseman's Dakota Wesleyan teammates gave the sophomore guard a pass. The 12th-ranked Tigers sank 30 of 31 shots at the foul line—16 of 17 in the final period—in a come-from-behind, 86-75, victory over the Jimmies.
University of Jamestown women's basketball gets a shot at redemption today at Harold Newman Arena. The sixth-ranked Jimmies play host to 12th-ranked Dakota Wesleyan beginning at 5:30 p.m. The visiting Tigers handed Jamestown one of its only two losses this season, an 87-69 affair, way back on Halloween night in Mitchell, S.D.
Out with what was believed as a possible stress fracture in her right foot, University of Jamestown's Marina Nowak was seen sporting a walking boot on the sidelines in December. Luckily, the 5-foot-11 junior forward from Rogers, Minn., only missed three games and quickly returned to her role as a staple off the bench for head coach Greg Ulland and the sixth-ranked Jimmie women's basketball team.

University of Jamestown senior forward Leighton Sampson put his entire 240-pound frame behind a two-handed dunk Saturday evening at Harold Newman Arena. As the early second-half play was bringing Jimmie basketball fans to their feet, it was simultaneously bringing down the collapsable basketball standard on the west end of the arena. A brief intermission to re-erect the hoop was followed with a dominating 104-88 Jimmie victory over Dakota State University.
