The last time the Jamestown Civic Center was as loud as it was on Monday night, the 70s rock group KISS was in town. Litchville-Marion-Montpelier had to have recruited just about every available body within its school system to compete with the high-numbered, boisterous Valley City fans. The respective noise levels were a tie.
JAMESTOWN - Valley City's Anthony Van Dyke knocked down a pair of three-pointers in the fourth period, breaking up a back-and-forth battle for the lead, and led the Hi-Liner's past Litchville-Marion-Montpelier 55-45 this evening in the championship game of the District 5 boys' basketball tournament. Van Dyke finished the game with 11 points in the game, while the Hi-Liner's were paced by Wayne Engelhard with 14 points. Van Dyke's first three-pointer of the final 8 minutes came with 6:37 left that put the Hi-Liner's up 40-36.
JAMESTOWN - The LaMoure Loboes are heading back to a pretty familiar place. The Loboes' Gaige Dunn scored a game-high 15 points, and LaMoure has advanced to its 11th straight Region 3 boys' basketball tournament with a 48-36 win over Barnes County North in the second region qualifier this evening in the District 5 boys' basketball tournament. An Aaron Stemen three-pointer with 5:09 left in the first capped a 9-0 run by LaMoure to start the game.
JAMESTOWN - Ellendale's Tanner White scored 25 points and dropped in the game-winning bucket as time expired to hand the Cardinals a 59-57 victory over the Central Prairie Firebirds this evening in the first of two Region 3 qualifiers at the District 5 boys' basketball tournament. The Firebirds led 47-40 heading into the fourth period, but three straight Central Prairie turnovers and two missed free throws by the Firebirds' Nic Moser translated into a 54-53 Ellendale lead with 1:32 left in the game. Central Prairie's Brock Knodel tied the game at 57-57 with a big jump shot with 25 seconds t
The LaMoure Loboes decided that District 5 didn't need a back-to-back boys' basketball champion. LaMoure controlled the tempo offensively throughout and held the defending champion Firebirds to just 37 percent shooting from the field (0 of 10 from three-point range) to knock off Central Prairie 39-32 on Friday night at the Civic Center. "One thing we talked about all week long, and it sounds cliché, we wanted to break it down into possessions," LaMoure coach Darren Thielges said.
The defending state champs are back in the big dance. For the third time this season, the Linton Lions were unable to find an answer for Eli Benz and the Kidder County Pirates.
It was predicted that Valley City held the tools to shake up District 5 boys' basketball right out of the gate in its first year competing in Class B, and those predictions rang true. The Hi-Liner's rolled up a successful 14-5 record over the course of the regular season and enter today's District 5 Boys' Basketball Tournament as the No. 1 seed with a district mark of 6-1. The tournament kicks off today at 3 p.m. inside the Jamestown Civic Center. "This was our goal at the start of the year. We wanted to win the regular season and come in as the No.
The District 5 girls' basketball season was brought to a grinding halt in Hazelton on Monday. The girls from District 6 made it a clean sweep during the quarterfinals of the Region 3 Girls' Basketball Tournament, as Hazelton-Moffit-Braddock, Linton, Napoleon and Kidder County all convincingly marched into today's semifinals. District 5's best shot at surviving Day 1 was dashed when H-M-B recovered from a 23-8 first-period deficit against Ellendale to win 52-42 in the first game of the afternoon.
The Blue Jay girls' hockey team had already secured its place at this year's state tournament by last weekend, but the Williston Coyotes had not. Trying to out-dual Dickinson for the eighth and final state tournament seed, the Coyotes rolled into Jamestown on Saturday willing to lay it all on the line. An early third-period goal by Williston's Amanda Nelson put the Coyotes out front 1-0, but Jamestown's Amber Schaack got the equalizer four minutes later and after an extra overtime period Williston got what they needed. The two teams skated off the ice in a 1-1 tie, giving Williston the poin
The Jimmie women are off to a flying start after Day 1 of the 2010 Dakota Athletic Conference Indoor Track and Field Championships in Spearfish, S.D. The Jimmies are currently just 5 points behind the host team, Black Hills State, after racking up 54 points. Black Hills State tops the leaderboard with 59 points, while Dickinson State (25), Minot State (25), Dakota State (22) and South Dakota Mines (9) round out the remainder of the field. Jamestown College's Sarah Skipper keeps adding to her memorable junior season with her second straight championship in the women's pentathlon.
