CARRINGTON, N.D. -- No motion was made on a recommendation by the Carrington High School administration to place wrestling coach Mark Pazdernik on administrative leave through the remainder of the 2010-11 high school wrestling season during Tuesday's open school board meeting. As a result, Pazdernik retained his current head coaching position with the Cardinals after allowing a handful of his wrestlers to capture and transport a raccoon during a team bus trip from Carrington to Grafton on Feb.
Carrington school board president Scott Fetch said he assumes the board will discuss Saturday's incident concerning the Carrington wrestling team stowing a raccoon on its team bus at today's regular school board meeting scheduled for 5 p.m. at the high school. "I'm assuming it will come up.
Jamestown High School senior Brett Mittleider etched his name into the Blue Jay wrestling record books on Friday night. Mittleider's 24-9 technical fall over the Firebirds' Tommy Good in Devils Lake marked his 100th career prep wrestling victory, as the Blue Jays defeated Devils Lake for the third time this season, 57-18. The feat was no small task for Mittleider, as he is just the 12th Blue Jay wrestler to reach the 100-win plateau since the school's wrestling program was established in 1960. Last year, Jamestown's Johnny Schmitz reached the elite 100-win club. "He finally got No. 100.
There isn't very many prep sports where a team calls on a seventh-grader to go out and try to earn his team a victory, but that's the nature of high school wrestling. It all came down to Jamestown seventh-grader Keith Shahin during Thursday night's dual between the Blue Jays and the Valley City Hi-Liners at Jamestown High School. With his team leading 33-27, Shahin just needed to stay off his back at 119 pounds to lift the Jays to the win.
Just how hard is it to beat a boys' basketball team from Linton High School? It was 2001 the last time the Napoleon Imperials defeated a Dan Carr-coached Linton program, but after 10 years of trying the Imperials finally put an end to the drought on Tuesday night in Napoleon. The Imperials limited the newly formed and No.
The Bismarck Century boys' hockey team was undefeated in the West Region when the day started, and it stayed that way with a 4-0 victory over the visiting Jamestown Blue Jays in Bismarck on Tuesday. The Patriots scored three straight goals in the span of 64 seconds in the first period, and Jamestown struggled to find the back of the net on the power play for the second straight night. "We didn't play our best in the first period," JHS hockey coach Matt Stockert said.
The Jamestown Blue Jay boys' swimming and diving team made a 30-point gain on the Williston Coyotes since the two teams faced each other one week ago in Williston, but the Coyotes still got the better of the Jays on Friday at the JHS pool. Williston defeated Jamestown 108-75 last Friday and changes made to the Blue Jay lineup by coach Marney Shirley, combined with a solid effort by her athletes this time around nearly got Jamestown the victory. In the end, however, Williston escaped Jamestown with a narrow 94-91 dual win. "We put together the best lineup that I could think of, but we just c
The Jamestown Blue Jay wrestling team has put together a solid month of January on the mat, and they were hoping to carry that momentum into Thursday night's West Region dual against the Mandan Braves in Jamestown. But when you're sick, you're sick. The Braves rifled off three straight pins to open the dual, and later picked up a technical fall and a major decision to beat Jamestown 39-26 in the Jays' final dual of the month. "On Monday night I had eight kids at practice, the rest were at home sick and throwing up," JHS coach Greg White said.
Ding dong the streak is dead. In what had seemed like an eternity, the smiles were finally back on the faces of the Central Prairie girls' basketball team in Jamestown on Tuesday night. Behind 25 points from senior forward Alecia Krapp, and 19 more from sophomore guard Jordan Spitzer, an enormous weight was lifted as the Firebirds won their first game since the 2008-09 season with a convincing 57-44 victory over Strasburg-Zeeland during the Jamestown Civic Center Jamboree. "I was so sick of losing," Krapp said. "I feel like a champion.
Linton-Hazelton-Moffit-Braddock boys' basketball coach Dan Carr isn't one to point the spotlight on himself. So the explanation he gave after reaching his latest career coaching milestone of 600 wins was one those around him have grown to expect. "It means I've had an awful lot of good basketball players," Carr said. "You have to have a lot of good athletes and parents to support you, and I've been very fortunate to be in Linton, North Dakota for the past 29 years." The No.
