Sydney Soulis wasn't happy with her performance in the first game of Tuesday's high school softball doubleheader against Bismarck Legacy at Trapper Field.

But in the nightcap, Soulis was the spark the home team needed offensively. She belted a pair of 2-RBI triples, leading the Blue Jays past the Sabers 8-5 and helping Jamestown improve to 4-2 to start the season.
Rylee Perez hadn't recently been producing the way she'd like at the plate.

She batted a perfect 8-for-8, while driving in seven runs and scoring eight more, helping the Jimmies top the Trojans 15-8 and 10-2 to complete a four-game sweep to open home play.

Strasburg-Zeeland senior star Brody Nieuwsma put a bow on some unfinished business at the Jamestown Civic Center on Thursday.

Nieuwsma and Strasburg-Zeeland are off to next week's state Class B tournament in Minot. They defeated Edgeley-Kulm-Montpelier 49-46.
