Scott Bintz is fast on four wheels, but he's also pretty speedy on two feet. The Jamestown WISSOTA Midwest Modified driver sprinted to turn No. 2 at Jamestown Speedway on Saturday night to check on his 16-year-old son, Cameron. Cameron Bintz rolled his IMCA Modified off the track during heat-race action, after contact had broken something underneath the rookie's machine. The younger Bintz was attempting to complete just his fifth night of A-mod racing.

Amanda Roesler has struggled with her swing at times this season. But the Kindred-Richland sophomore delivered the decisive blow for the Vikings on Friday in the semifinals of the state Class B softball tournament. Roesler laced an RBI double down the left-field line in the first inning against Watford City, clearing the bases and giving the Vikings a 3-0 lead at Trapper Field.
FARGO—It was so far the best save of Breanna Nelson's young soccer career. Fargo Davies' freshman goalkeeper denied all-state senior striker Emily Reiten in the 42nd minute of Thursday's state tournament quarterfinals at Fargo Shanley's Sid Cichy Stadium. Nelson's diving effort preserved at 1-0 Eagles' victory over previously unbeaten Jamestown. Davies will face Fargo North in tonight's semifinals. Both of the tournament's top seeds fell, as Bismarck St. Mary's stunned West Fargo Sheyenne 3-2.
Jamestown High School teams don't often flirt with the type of rarefied air currently surrounding the girls soccer program. If the Blue Jays can run the table this weekend at the state soccer tournament in Fargo, they'll join the 1974 girls basketball team (18-0) and the 1933 football team (8-0) by capping a perfect season with a state championship. Jamestown (14-0-0), the tournament's only unbeaten team, faces Fargo Davies (9-4-3) in today's quarterfinals at Fargo Shanley High School's Sid Cichy Stadium. The game is scheduled to begin at 4:30 p.m.
A poignant, changing of the guard-type moment ended Jamestown High School's softball season on Saturday at Trapper Field. Eighth-graders Ella Roaldson and Payton Gall were on first and second with two outs, while seventh-grader Jenna Fischer—batting ninth—stood in the batter's box. Jamestown was trailing Minot Bishop Ryan 12-10 in the seventh inning of a state-qualifying game of the West Region tournament.
Alex Nihill wanted the ball back in her hand on Friday at Trapper Field, and the Jamestown High School freshman got the opportunity. Nihill's six innings of relief work and game-changing, two-RBI single in the fifth sparked the Blue Jays to an 11-10 victory over Bismarck Legacy in loser-out play of the West Region softball tournament. The clutch performance came one day after a mislocated pitch from Nihill cost Jamestown three runs in its quarterfinal loss to Bismarck Century. The Blue Jays face Minot Bishop Ryan in a state-qualifier today at 1 p.m.
Emily Reiten was unable to hide the happiness Thursday night at Rotary Field. The talented goal scorer and her seven Jamestown High School senior teammates helped the Blue Jays shutout Bismarck Legacy 5-0 in the final home soccer match of their careers. If there were any mixed emotions after it was all over, Reiten didn't show them. "It's been an exciting run," Reiten smiled. "I played as hard as I could all year, and the past five years."
Sophie McClean is having the time of her life on the soccer field. The Jamestown High School eighth-grader was the only back-line underclassman starting for the undefeated Blue Jays on Tuesday at Rotary Field, and McClean's soaking up the experience like a sponge. Jamestown struck in the first minute against Mandan and cruised to victory No. 13 on the spring—a new Blue Jay record—by the final of 4-0. The West Region champions have a chance to wrap up a perfect regular season on Thursday hosting Bismarck Legacy.
