When it appeared the wheels were about to fall off the cart, Ellendale needed a boost of calming reassurance. They received it from the player who's taken pride in fulfilling that role. Ellendale sophomore guard Brennen Vance buried a jump shot from the right wing, halting the Carrington Cardinals' 7-0 run to start the fourth period of Saturday's championship game of the Stutsman County boys basketball tournament. Ellendale's composure was restored, and the southern Cardinals went on to knock off the two-time defending tournament champion northern Cardinals 48-39.
Now a month into the season, the experience the Edgeley-Kulm-Montpelier boys basketball team has gained is starting to show. The Rebels were able to turn the tables on Kidder County during the quarterfinals of the Stutsman County tournament on Friday. Having lost to the Pirates 50-35 back on Dec.
Sophomore Hunter White had a big first half, while brother — and more prominently known — Adam White helped put the game away after halftime at the Jamestown Civic Center on Friday night.

The Ellendale Cardinals (4-0) will take on the Medina-Pingree-Buchanan Thunder (3-0) at 7:30, but only one of the two teams can keep its early-season record unblemished and move forward to Friday's semifinals. A game in which they're most likely considered to be the underdog, the Thunder have planned to focus squarely on one key task.
The Strasburg-Zeeland boys basketball team is keeping things in perspective. On the cusp of earning a date to the state tournament one year ago, the ambition to make a similar run in 2015 was certainly palpable around the team at the Jamestown Civic Center on Friday.
After a lackluster opening 16 minutes against Oakes, Park Christian put together a winning plan in the locker room at the half on Friday at the Jamestown Civic Center. It was simple.

Santa plans ahead when giving gifts to dirt-track drivers. New helmets, tear-offs and fire suits are common items unwrapped each holiday season, but, locally, the recipients will have to patiently wait another 135 days before they can finally put them to use. That's when Jamestown Speedway will kick off the 2015 season on May 9.
