Jamestown High School's Austin Shafer would probably trade in his latest accolade for one more win. The senior midfielder and the Blue Jays fell one match shy of playing in a second straight state boys soccer tournament this fall. On Tuesday, Shafer was one of six West Region players selected to the all-state first team. "I'd have liked to go to state my senior year, but I thought we had a pretty good season," said Shafer, who was named to the all-state second team as a junior. "We had a young team and I was really impressed with the guys.
DEVILS LAKE, N.D.—Spencer Frith had a nose for the football Saturday at Roller Field. The Devils Lake senior linebacker recovered a fumble, intercepted a pass, and his second of two successful extra points booted through the goalposts sealed Jamestown's fate. The fourth-ranked Firebirds prevailed 14-13 over the second-ranked Blue Jays in a late-season Class AA showdown.
A trio of third-place finishes paced the Blue Jay girls swimming and diving team Saturday during the Marney Shirley Invite at the JHS pool. Jamestown High finished third out of five teams with 491 points one day after splitting with Williston and Dickinson. Minot took top team honors, piling up 650.5 points. "It was a solid performance," Jamestown coach Ben Smith said. "We schedule these meets back-to-back so we can kind of simulate what state is going to be like, swimming on Friday and then having to swim again on Saturday.
Bryn Woodside limped to the sideline a minute into the second period Friday night at Harold Newman Arena. Just one quarter into the new season and hosting University of Manitoba, University of Jamestown fans were holding their collective breath. “I had the worst dead leg,” Woodside laughed. “(Manitoba’s) big was setting a screen and I just got a knee right to my quad. “Ice and stretch. It’ll be fine.”
It was an emotional opening night at Harold Newman Arena for University of Jamestown senior forward Sam Johnson. After sinking 6-of-8 shots from 3-point range and helping lead the Jimmies to a 103-85 victory over Brandon University, Johnson paid tribute to a fallen former Jimmie basketball player shortly after the victory bells rang out in the background Friday night.
Connor Mullowney plans to remain calm and confident this morning in Grand Forks. Jamestown High School's senior captain has a shot at the singles consolation title today at the state boys tennis tournament. Mullowney needs to win out, starting at 10 a.m. against Fargo Davies freshman Kareem Kamel. "He's an unconventional player, but a very good player," Mullowney said of Kamel, who defeated Mullowney earlier this season. "I'm going to look to attack when I can and not be too fancy."
Jamestown had a tough draw to open the team portion of the state high school boys tennis tournament Thursday in Grand Forks. The Blue Jays fell 4-1 to juggernaut Grand Forks Red River, but Jamestown coach Ryan Iliff praised the effort. Jamestown's team tournament ultimately came to end falling to Minot 4-1 in a loser-out match. "The way we competed all the way through that match, I was happy with," Iliff said of the Jays' battle with the Roughriders. "We came out strong and we liked the position we were in."
Jamestown High School put hosting a playoff football game near the top of its list this fall. The second-ranked Blue Jays can meet that goal Saturday with a win over the fourth-ranked Firebirds in Devils Lake. A victory secures the Blue Jays the third seed for the upcoming Class 2A state playoffs, which will mean hosting an opening-round contest at Ernie Gates Field on Oct. 28. "The dangling carrot is not a bad thing," Jamestown coach Bill Nelson said. "We're not there yet, but there's a lot of hungry individuals in this locker room."
Friday's first men's basketball game at Harold Newman Arena should prove to be rather fitting. A new-look Jimmie team will take the court of its brand-new facility against Brandon University. Jamestown is replacing three senior starters with two new senior transfers and homecoming king Sam Johnson. Tip-off tomorrow follows the Jimmie women vs. University of Manitoba at approximately 7:30.
