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.

Normally it takes until early June before the Minnesota Twins start to disappoint me. Thanks a heap, Ervin Santana, for possibly putting us all out of our misery before the first pitch of 2015 was even thrown.

Landon Ostlie didn't exactly realize how far his sport of choice would eventually take him. It could be argued the water itself should be given credit for finding the former Jamestown High School standout swimmer over a decade ago. But however the meeting occurred, the match has proved to be perfect. Ostlie's college career came to a close on Feb. 21. The St.

BISMARCK -- LaMoure-Litchville-Marion didn't have any easy task in front of it on Saturday at the Bismarck Event Center. After competing tirelessly in back-to-back, emotionally-charged games, the Loboes still had one more contest to complete before wrapping up the Class B state boys basketball tournament. Facing last year's state champions -- the Fargo Oak Grove Grovers -- didn't make matters any more easy. Mr.
BISMARCK -- Friday night nearly became a "Did I just see that?" moment for the Class B basketball fans assembled inside the Bismarck Event Center. Unseeded LaMoure-Litchville-Marion Loboes pushed No. 1-seeded Four Winds-Minnewaukan all the way to the breaking point, but just not past it. Six-foot-three Trayvon McKay shined under the bright lights late in the game, burying three fourth-quarter 3-pointers and scoring a team-high 17 points in Four Winds-Minnewaukan's 51-47 win. "He got hot, you know, and those were deep 3s," L-L-M coach Darren Thielges said of McKay.
