Emily Reiten was in top form on Saturday in Mandan. The senior striker's hat trick led Jamestown High School past the Braves 3-0 in girls soccer. The Blue Jays improved to 9-0 overall and travel to face Bismarck St. Mary's (4-3-1) on Tuesday. Reiten's first two tallies were both assisted by senior Ligia Schulz. Her third score, and seventh overall this season, came via a second-half penalty kick. Jamestown notched its seventh shutout in nine matches. The Jays and senior goalie Haley Hillstrom have allowed just two goals all spring.
Lucas Rodin couldn't have asked for a better start to the season. Two nights under the lights have produced two victories for the Marion, N.D., man known as The Nightmare. Rodin pedaled his WISSOTA Midwest Modified to victory in Fergus Falls, Minn., on Friday, and on Saturday he captured the IMCA Modifieds checkered flag during Jamestown Speedway's season opener. It was only Rodin's third full night of A-mod racing.
Just one game separates the University of Jamestown softball team and an automatic bid to the opening round of the NAIA national tournament. The Jimmies will play 23rd-ranked Bellevue University today at 2:30 p.m. (central time) in Dickinson to determine the champion of the NSAA conference tournament. A win would give the Jimmies their first national appearance in softball since 1992. Jamestown and Bellevue split the first two games of a best-of-three series on Sunday at Dickinson's North Softball Complex, setting up today's conference title finale.
University of Jamestown had yet to hand the ball over to Brad Bennett this postseason. The senior ace got the call on Sunday and turned in a gem, keeping the Jimmies' season alive at Charlie Brown Field in Valley City. Bennett tossed nine innings of one-run baseball against the nation's second-ranked team, en route to a 6-1 Jimmie victory over Bellevue University in the NSAA baseball tournament. The Jimmies and the Bruins play again today at 11 a.m. The winner moves on to face either Valley City State or Mayville State in the conference championship game at 5 p.m.

The Blue Jay softball team opened its weekend in Minnesota with a split on Friday in Little Falls. Jamestown topped the host team 4-1, but fell to a solid Albany team 11-1. Albany, a Class AA high school, improved to 12-1 overall. Albany plated seven runs in the first inning against the Jays.
Megan Gaffaney and Emily Reiten connected late in Minot to keep the Blue Jays' undefeated soccer season intact. Gaffaney's team-leading sixth assist was directed off the head of Reiten and into the net in the 76th minute of Friday's West Region match against the Majettes. Jamestown High School escaped the turf field at Minot State University with a huge 1-0 victory, improving to 8-0 overall. Minot was coming off a 2-0 victory over Bismarck Century on Tuesday. Jamestown has handed Minot (4-2-2 overall) its only two losses of the spring.
Hanna Dunnigan saved her best for last. The left-handed ace has largely dominated her senior softball season for the University of Jamestown. She'll graduate later this month with her name littered all over the Jimmies' record book, but the Canadian isn't quite finished competing for the orange and black. Dunnigan and the Jimmies open postseason play facing Presentation College on Friday in the opening round of the North Star Athletic Association's conference tournament in Dickinson. The Jimmies (36-18 overall) are seeded second.

Maggie Ridley scored back-to-back goals early in the first half on Tuesday in Bismarck, and Jamestown High School was off to the races. The Blue Jays soared to a perfect 7-0, defeating Bismarck Legacy 6-1. "Overall, we came out and took care of business," Blue Jay coach Mike Schulz said. "Legacy played a lot better than what their record would suggest."
