Hegerle, Struble honored by GPAC
University of Jamestown athletes Kalli Hegerle and Claire Struble have both earned Great Plains Athletic Conference players of the week honors.
Hegerle, a junior right-side hitter for Jimmie women's volleyball from West Fargo, was named the GPAC's attacker of the week. Hegerle hit .397 in helping Jamestown to a 3-1 victory at Hastings College and a 3-0 sweep at Doane University, swatting 28 kills on 63 attempts with just three errors.
Struble, a junior center forward on the Jimmie women's soccer team from Murrieta, California, was named the GPAC's offensive player of the week in the sport. Struble recorded her first collegiate hat trick in a 3-0 win at Dakota Wesleyan, while also helping the Jimmies defeat College of Saint Mary 1-0 at home.
Oakes cancels playoff game
The football season is over for the fourth-ranked and 7-1 Oakes Tornadoes.
Oakes was forced to forfeit this Saturday's Class A quarterfinal at top-ranked Langdon/Edmore/Munich due to COVID-19. The two-time defending state champion Cardinals advance in the postseason over the Tornadoes and will host a Nov. 7 semifinal against either fifth-ranked Bishop Ryan (8-2) or Shiloh Christian (7-2).
Oakes defeated Carrington 36-0 at home last Saturday in the opening round of the Class A state playoffs.
