Most people have heard the terms "home-field advantage" and "home-court advantage." But what term arguably trumps them all? Home-course advantage. If the Carrington boys' golf team can duplicate the 318 they carded during Tuesday's Region 2 individual qualifier at Thursday's Region 2 meet in Mayville, the Cardinals wouldn't just be hosting the state Class B meet this year, they'd be trying to win it. The state Class B boys' golf tournament will be played at Carrington's Crossroads Golf Course on June 1-2, whether the Cards qualify as a team or not.
Jamestown's Jason Grimes picked up right where he left off during Jamestown Speedway's season opener on Saturday night. The WISSOTA Modified driver came from the 10th starting position and stole the lead from defending national points champion Blake Jegtvig with four laps remaining to pick up Modified feature win No. 1 in 2010. Grimes capped off last season by taking home the checkered flag in the season-ending 38th Annual Stock Car Stampede at the speedway, and Grimes' first win of the new season couldn't come soon enough. "It feels good," Grimes said.
All successful baseball teams -- high school, college or professional -- share a couple of things in common: solid pitching and timely hitting. Of course great defense can be thrown into that debate as well, but when a high school, wood-bat baseball team combines to bat at a clip of .280 with a slugging percentage of .312 and an on-base average of .434, plus a pitching staff that has allowed just 9 earned runs in 19 games with a team ERA of 0.56 and 174 strikeouts, then that team is going to be one tough customer to deal with. Enter the 2010 LaMoure-Litchville-Marion Loboes. The Loboes lock
Attention area NASCAR fans: be sure to pencil "Jamestown Speedway, July 31" on a sticky note and slap it on the refrigerator. For the first time in the track's history, a NASCAR veteran will be piloting a car around Jamestown's banked, dirt oval when the United States Modified Touring Series (USMTS) makes a visit to the speedway on July 31. Former NASCAR Sprint Cup regular and fan favorite Ken Schrader will be on hand during a four-track, upper-Midwest swing with USMTS in late July. The touring series will run at Red River Valley Speedway in Fargo on July 28, Casino Speedway in Watertown,
Jamestown College left-handed pitcher Ryan Iliff was awarded Dakota Athletic Conference Player of the Week honors on Monday. Iliff tossed a complete-game shutout in his only outing of the week as the Jimmies deflated Valley City State University 15-0 on Saturday.

Iliff shares DAC Player of the Week honors with Dakota State's Josh Tiede.
Rain and sleet was the demise of Friday's baseball doubleheader between the Jamestown Blue Jays and the Devils Lake Firebirds, but Mother Nature cooperated just enough on Saturday for the Jays to get in a pair of conference games against the Williston Coyotes at Jack Brown Stadium. With a few rain drops falling and the wind howling, the Blue Jays earned a split with the Coyotes winning the first game 3-2. Jamestown starting pitcher Brandon Gange allowed two runs over the first three innings in Game 1, but the Jays charged back with two runs in the bottom of the fourth and tacked on another r
After a seven-hour, indoor marathon at Dickinson High School on Saturday the Jamestown Blue Jay girls' tennis team picked up its first West Region victory of the season. The Jays notched 3 of 6 singles victories over the Midgets, and won 2 of the 3 doubles matches to take down Dickinson 5-4. "We're starting to come together as a team," JHS coach Pat Mullowney said. "We're still short-handed and are missing a couple of girls, but we showed a lot of resiliency out there.
Jamestown High School senior Kara Nygaard qualified for the state meet in the javelin, as the Blue Jay girls' track and field team took 11 of 18 events to win the Hi-Liner Invitational in Valley City on Thursday. Nygaard's winning javelin toss matched the state qualifying standard of 110 feet, and right behind Nygaard was sophomore teammate Kate Roscoe in second place with a toss of 105-1. "Kara qualified in the javelin, and it was only her second time throwing the javelin this year," Blue Jay girls' track and field coach Arnie Falk said. It was a big day for the Jays' underclassmen, with f

Just how hard is it to score 2,190 career points in high school boys' basketball? According to the Hoopster, only 16 players in the history of North Dakota boys' prep ball have scored more career points than Kidder County's Adam Randall, and there's never been a 2,000 career point scorer in the Class A ranks -- Valley City's Jeff Boschee came up 6 points short (1,994).
