A grueling week of softball culminated in a pair of much-needed West Region victories for the Jamestown Blue Jays. The Jays strolled into Bismarck on Friday and topped first-year team Bismarck Legacy 5-1 and 8-5.
Jamestown Speedway's winter-long hibernation ends today. The 2015 racing season unofficially begins with its annual test and tune, which will take place from 4 to 8 p.m.
Jamestown senior Kadie Anderson has been a part of the Blue Jay softball team since the very beginning. A beginning that saw the Blue Jays often fall victim to the 10-run mercy rule. But those dues appear to be just about all paid up for the fourth-year varsity program, and it has to be gratifying for Jamestown's top pitcher — Anderson — to see the improvements the Blue Jays have made since her freshman season having an impact on the scoreboard. Jamestown took the West Region's No. 1 and undefeated team to the wire at Lyle Lawrence Field on Thursday.

Managers want their leadoff hitters to be a sparkplug for the team, and the Jamestown softball team has found one in Mariah Wick. The speedy sophomore center fielder wears the same number she bats—No. 1—and was a major catalyst in a pair of victories over Williston at Lyle Lawrence Field on Friday. Wick went 5-for-6 at the plate with three bunt singles, two walks and an incredible seven stolen bases, helping the Jays win 11-1 and 17-4. "When I get on base it just fires everybody else up," Wick said. "We want to be an aggressive team.
Hefty doses of both hard work and efficiency were dealt by the home team at Jamestown High School's Rotary Field on Thursday night. If that trend continues, the Blue Jays will be a soccer team to be reckoned with. Jamestown sophomore forward Alexa Kudrna sent her first goal of the season into the back of the net with 15 minutes, 50 seconds left in the second half against visiting Bismarck Century. The goal ended up being just the third shot of the match sent on goal by the Blue Jays, but it tied the contest at 1-1.
