Jamestown's Erin Hillerud was the definition of a leader in Mandan on Thursday night. The senior gymnast has been battling injury all season, but she shined during a dual against the Braves. She won all four events and cruised to the all-around title with a score of 36.75. It was just the second time this season Hillerud had competed in the all-around. The Blue Jays sailed to the team victory, defeating Mandan 139.3 to 125.35.

\IMCA officials say they're excited to be coming to the Buffalo City full-time in 2016. Brett Root, IMCA's president, and Jim Stannard, the organization's vice president of operations, were both in Jamestown on Thursday to discuss IMCA's future with Jamestown Speedway. The track announced in December that IMCA Modifieds will be replacing WISSOTA Modifieds as its weekly main attraction starting this spring. Root and Stannard, along with track officials, met with area modified drivers during a meeting held at Jamestown's Quality Inn & Suites.
The Ellendale Cardinals had big shoes to fill this season, following the graduation of all-state athlete Adam White and his 22-plus points and 11 rebounds per night. But for the second consecutive year the Cardinals walked out of the Jamestown Civic Center with a perfect 7-0 record and holding the Stutsman County boys basketball tournament championship plaque. One man who certainly wasn't surprised was Ellendale veteran coach Brian Vance. His Cardinals just outlasted Edgeley-Kulm-Montpelier 43-42 in the title game on Saturday.
South Border's Hunter Pinke showed what it means to be a leader during the third-place game of the Stutsman County boys basketball tournament. After aggravating his left hamstring in the first half against the Carrington Cardinals, exiting Saturday's contest inside the Jamestown Civic Center never appeared to be an option. The 6-foot-5 University of North Dakota football recruit forged on to play all 32 minutes, and his 13 points and seven rebounds helped the Mustangs top the Cardinals 44-32.
Ellendale senior center Logan Schumacher said Friday's game plan against the South Border Mustangs was pretty cut and dry. "Stop Hunter Pinke," the 6-foot-5 Schumacher said. "He'll push you and foul you. It's almost like playing football."
Edgeley-Kulm-Montpelier's Connor Entzi was held scoreless in the third period on Friday night against the Carrington Cardinals. But not the fourth. The 6-foot-5 senior standout poured in nine of his game-high 19 points over the final eight minutes, and also finished with 11 rebounds to help lift the Rebels past the Cardinals 39-37 during the semifinals of the Stutsman County boys basketball tournament at the Jamestown Civic Center. The perfect 7-0 Rebels will face the Ellendale Cardinals in tonight's championship game at 6:30.
Ellendale's Brennen Vance found his stroke early on the big court at the Jamestown Civic Center on Thursday. The junior guard splashed in a pair of 3-pointers and scored 10 of his game-high 12 points in the first period, helping the Cardinals take down Medina-Pingree-Buchanan 68-34 in the opening round of the Stutsman County boys basketball tournament. Ellendale, the defending tournament champion, improved to 5-0 to start the season and faces South Border tonight at 6 in the semifinals.
It's not how they drew it up, but sometimes that doesn't matter. A designed miss at the free-throw line Thursday night at the Jamestown Civic Center was supposed to find the hands of Carrington's Bryce Edland with 1.8 seconds left in regulation against Napoleon-Gackle-Streeter in the opening round of the Stutsman County boys basketball tournament.
