Bryce Edland and the Carrington Cardinals had to hold sixth-ranked Linton-HMB scoreless for 12.5 seconds on Tuesday night at the Jamestown Civic Center. Finding out what legendary Linton coach Dan Carr would pull out of his bag of tricks had to feel like an eternity. But the Cardinals didn't buckle under the pressure. A bank shot by the Lions' Jared Baumiller from the right block rimmed in and out, Carrington's Trey Rosenau grabbed the rebound, and the Cardinals defeated the Lions 53-52 in the Region 3 tournament semifinals.
He's known as "G-Money" to his Carrington High School teammates and fans. Garrett Bickett lived up to the moniker on Monday at the Jamestown Civic Center. G-Money's strong third quarter put to bed Carrington's quarterfinal of the Region 3 boys basketball tournament against Strasburg-Zeeland. Bickett nailed a 3-pointer, sank 6-of-6 shots at the foul line and scored 13 of his game-high 22 points in the third. Carrington cruised into tonight's semifinals with a 73-48 victory.
Napoleon-Gackle-Streeter's Ethan Kleppe didn't play in last year's Region 3 tournament at the Jamestown Civic Center. But that doesn't mean the sophomore guard wasn't paying attention. Kleppe's 3-pointer broke a 54-all tie with Edgeley-Kulm-Montpelier late in the fourth quarter of Monday's 62-60 win over the Rebels. In last year's first round, the Rebels ended the Imperials' season 47-45. N-G-S moves on to face Ellendale in tonight's semifinals at 7:30.
GRAND FORKS, N.D.—Edgeley-Kulm-Montpelier and its two seniors walked off the court winners on Saturday at the Alerus Center. The Rebels' Allison Geisler and Tabby Kinzler scored the final five points in the seventh-place game of the state Class B girls basketball tournament against Glen Ullin-Hebron. The Rebels rolled 46-35 over the Bearcats. "I didn't even realize that until somebody told me," Kinzler said. "It's a great way to go out, with the two seniors coming up big and scoring."
Midkota boys basketball coach Ross Florhaug and the Mustangs wrapped up what had to be an interesting week of practice Sunday morning. They've had seven days to prepare for a game, and a tournament, nobody outside the team's circle thought they'd be playing in. The Mustangs (3-18) open today's Region 3 tournament quarterfinals facing sixth-ranked Linton-HMB (19-2) at 3 p.m. inside the Jamestown Civic Center.
GRAND FORKS, N.D.—Katie Entzi nearly willed Edgeley-Kulm-Montpelier to victory in the second half on Friday at the Alerus Center. The sophomore standout scored six straight points and assisted on four more, helping the Rebels rally to tie Park River-Fordville-Lankin at 26-all with a minute left in the third quarter of state Class B tournament consolation play.
GRAND FORKS, N.D.—Taylor Mathern and Edgeley-Kulm-Montpelier kept pace for a quarter on Thursday at the Alerus Center. But the undefeated Kindred Vikings caught fire in the second period against the Rebels in the opening round of the Class B state tournament. Kindred used three players to hit four 3-pointers during a 17-1 run to close the first half. Kindred led 31-19 at the break and coasted to a 56-41 victory over E-K-M. The Rebels will play Park River-Fordville-Lankin (23-2) in consolation play today at 1 p.m.
KULM, N.D.—Tabitha Kinzler understands the importance of everyone doing their part. Coming off the bench for Edgeley-Kulm-Montpelier's girls basketball team, the senior guard never knows exactly when she'll be needed or for how long. But whenever coach Megan Cleveland has called for No. 11 this season, Kinzler has been ready to roll. The Class B state girls basketball tournament begins today at the Alerus Center in Grand Forks. E-K-M plays Kindred at 1 p.m.
Mackenzie Clark is taking her volleyball skills to the next level. The Jamestown High School senior signed a letter of intent on Monday with North Dakota State College of Science. The National Junior College Athletic Association Division II Wildcats went 27-12 last season, en route to the team's third straight Region 13 title. "At the end of last year, I saw my improvements and it really came to mind that I only had one more season and I didn't want it to end," Clark said. "I worked really hard to try and make it to this point."
Jamestown High School will have two all-staters back on the ice in boys hockey next season. Junior defenseman Connor Fuchs and junior goalie Matthew Schneider were both recently voted all-state by the coaches. Jamestown High School's Haley Hillstrom was also an all-state selection on the girls team. Fuchs, standing at 6-foot-5 without skates, was tied for third in scoring for the Blue Jays this winter with five goals and 13 assists. He blew past his sophomore numbers of two goals and a pair of assists, helping Jamestown to nine victories.
