When it comes to Class B girls' basketball, the proverbial 1-2 punch has rarely come any better than Carrington's Sierra Rosenau and Emily Thompson. The pair of senior Cardinals highlight this year's Jamestown Sun All-Area Girls' Basketball Team, and is joined on the 2011-12 first-team with Linton-Hazelton-Moffit-Braddock's Kayln Schneider, Napoleon's Sheridon Dewald and Dakota Prairie's Brandy Messner. Looking back at their prep careers, what else is there to say about Rosenau and Thompson? "Over the last four years they gave us 90 wins, two state tournament trips and one state title," Car
Linton-Hazelton-Moffit-Braddock boys' basketball coach Dan Carr has won over 600 games and has three state Class B championships under his belt in his 30-plus years on the sidelines, but he's never had a player like Tanner Purintun. Just ask him. "He is the most fierce competitor I have had in my 33-year coaching career," Carr said. "Tanner is a coach's dream." Purintun, along with Warwick's 2011-12 Mr.
It's a chilly day at the soccer field when everyone in attendance resembles the Unabomber, sans the sunglasses. Alas, the 2012 Jamestown Blue Jay girls' soccer season got underway at Rotary Field against the Mandan Braves on Tuesday night, as the mercury in Jamestown struggled mightily to stay above 40 degrees. "It's hard to believe there was nice weather up until tonight, and all of a sudden here we are," JHS second-year coach Ryan Kleinknecht said.
After winning six straight, the Jimmie women's softball team split a doubleheader with the visiting Mayville State University Comets at McElroy Park on Friday afternoon. The Jimmies' record stands at 16-13 overall and 3-1 in Dakota Athletic Conference play.
All systems were a go for the Jamestown Blue Jay baseball team at Charlie Brown Field in Valley City on Thursday. JHS racked up 21 total hits and pushed 36 runs across the plate, as it was all Blue Jays in a pair of five-inning contests against the Hi-Liners to open the 2012 high school baseball season. The Jays cruised 14-1 in the opener, and went on to a 22-1 victory in the nightcap to start the season 2-0 overall. "Valley City was a little shorthanded today, and we played pretty solid baseball and obviously offensively we did some really good things," JHS coach Cory Anderson.
Even when it appears they may be at odds with one another, the respect those within the local dirt-track racing community have for their peers is admirable. "I've already bought tickets for three of their specials," Jamestown Speedway general manager Joanne Dieterle said, in regards to West Fargo's Red River Valley Speedway moving to Saturday nights this summer, the same night Jamestown Speedway has operated on for decades. "We're not mad at them or anything.
Ask any team and they'll tell you. There's no place like home, and after starting the season with 25 games in places such as Arizona and Iowa, the Jamestown College women's softball team was happy to be back in Jamestown playing in front of their home fans for the first time this season. The Jimmies swept rival Valley City State University at McElroy Park in a doubleheader on Tuesday, in what counted in both the Dakota Athletic Conference and Associated of Independent Institutions (A.I.I) standings. Unlike a year ago, where there was still roughly a foot of snow on the ground at this time,
The Jimmies ran into a buzzsaw at the Apollo Softball Complex in Grand Forks on Wednesday night. The aforementioned power tool was in the form of NCAA Division I University of North Dakota. The Fighting Sioux swept Jamestown College 10-0 and 9-2, dropping the Jimmies' record to 9-10 on the season. Jamestown College will be looking to get back into the winning column this Friday, Saturday and Sunday in Sioux City, Iowa.
Just like the boys, two years as the Linton-Hazleton-Moffit Braddock Lions has produced back-to-back trips to the state Class B basketball tournament for the ladies of Linton-HMB. The Lions upended Napoleon 60-49 in the Region 3 championship game in Napoleon March 8, which also marked two straight region titles for Lady Lions head coach Pat Gerving, who took over the duties for long-tenured Linton girls' coach Brian Flyberg last season. Gerving and the Lions posted a third-place finish last year at the Bismarck Civic Center, and no one should be too surprised if the Lions are able to improve
