Cross country runs tough in Valley City

Brooklyn Nygaard was in a tight race for most of her 21-minute race at Valley City's Bjornsons Golf Course.

"She ran a really tough race -- it came down to the last 150 to 100 meters," JHS head cross country coach Ken Gardner said. "She was with two other runners and one of them was going to crack the top-10 and she turned on the jets and beat the other two for 10th place."

Nygaard was the top-finisher for the Jays at the Hi-Liners Blue and White Invitational Sept. 18. A second-year runner for the Blue Jays, Nygaard crossed the finish line at 20:52. 42 seconds separated Saturday's top-10 girl runners.

As a team, the Blue Jays placed seventh out of 12 competing teams. The Blue Jay boys squad also finished in 7th, recording a team score of 179. There were 15 boys teams competing in Saturday's races.

Gardner said Nygaard was about eight seconds shy of her season 5k PR -- a great place to be headed into the second half of the season. The Jays' No. 2 girl runner, was seventh-grader Layna Hoffer. Hoffer clocked in at 21:37, good enough for a 17th place finish.

Madison Rick, Jera Truax and eighth-grader Emma Flieth rounded out the Jays' top-five runners. Gardner said Jays are starting to see consistency from the young batch of runners.

Greta Goven of Valley City earned top honors pacing out a 20:10 race. Hunter McHenry of Grand Forks Red River won the boys 5k crossing the line at 16:22.

Cullen Flieth was the top Blue Jay boys runner, finishing the course in a time of 18:11 -- good enough to crack the top-20. Gardner said Flieth's time was a little slower from the Jays' meet last week, but added that times can vary depending on the course. Flieth has been the top finisher for the boys at every meet he has competed in.

Sam Anteau and Caleb Fabian also nabbed spots in the top-40, turning in times of 19:06 and 19:07.

The Jays are scheduled to be back in action on Sept. 25 at their own Parkhurst Recreation Area. The action featuring the 23 registered teams is slated to begin at 11 a.m.

Stockert back on the field for soccer squad

The Bue Jay soccer team got one of its three starters back Saturday in Williston.

Ashton Stockert, a junior forward, was back in action for the Jays against Williston after being out for the last few weeks with a broken toe.

It's a good thing too since Stockert was at least partly responsible for helping the Jays get their first tie of the season.

The Jays tied the Coyotes 3-3 and are now the seventh-best team in the conference standings at 3-9-1. Williston is still winless at 0-9-3. The Jays will be back on their home field on Tuesday hosting Dickinson at 7:30 p.m.

Down 2-0, Stockert passed the ball up to Jarrett Zalumskis to make it a one-goal game. The junior forward kept the momentum going, putting one in off a corner kick with three minutes gone in the second half.

Cullin Bennet gave the Jays the lead with 30 minutes left to play, finding the goal off an assist from Jack Paulson. Williston's Kai Thomas tied the game in the 63rd minute but the Jays' defense was able to fend off the rest of the Coyotes' shots on goal.

Blue Jay goalkeeper Ryan Larson made four saves for the Jays.

Varsity newbies shoot impressive rounds

Varsity golf team newcomers Aspen Humes and Mylee Michel cracked into the Blue Jays' top-four Friday at Minot's Vardon Golf Course.

The Jamestown High School girls golf team placed ninth out of 10 competing teams at the Minot Invite. Sophomore Olivia Sorlie and senior Bria Nieswaag once again earned the Jays' top-two positions carding a 96 and 97. While Humes' and Michel's scores didn't crack the 100-mark, they were still nice surprises.

Humes finished her round with 108 while Michel, an eighth-grader, ended with a 110.

Bismarck Century took the team title with a four-golfers score of 330. Leah Herbel of Bismarck Century racked up individual honors with a three-under-69.
