It all came down to the very last play Monday night in Bismarck

Despite outhitting Bismarck High 9-8 in the West Region Tournament play-in game, the Jays ended up falling 6-5 to the Demons, bringing their roller-coaster season to an end.

While the game ended in a loss, the Jays didn't waste any time firing up the offense. The Jays racked up five runs and kept the lead until the bottom of the seventh when Lucas Schell drove in a run on a single.

Jacoby Nold was on the mound for the Jays and gave up eight hits and six runs over his 6 1/3 innings. The senior struck out five at the plate and gave up just one walk.

Gage Orr led the Blue Jays in the batter's box going 2-for-3 with a double and a pair of RBI. Jackson Walters was batting .500 posting a double and an RBI.


The WDA tourney is slated to be held this weekend in Dickinson. The tourney is scheduled to be held Thursday through Saturday.

Golf fifth at Williston Invite

Jamestown High School's Easton Romsdahl broke into the top three Monday at the Williston Invite, helping the Blue Jay boys golf team to a fifth-place finish to wrap up the regular season.

Demons down tennis in Bismarck

The Jamestown High School girls tennis team's season came to an end Monday evening.

The Blue Jays got outplayed by Bismarck High in the capital city and have missed out on representing JHS as a team at the West Region tournament. The Jays ended the season at 3-13 overall and 0-9 in conference play.


Jamestown is this year's WDA tournament host site. The matches are scheduled to be held at Bolinger Courts and Jamestown's Two River Activities Center (TRAC). Matches are slated to begin Thursday and will conclude Saturday.

"I’m obviously disappointed to lose the match, but we have made a lot of improvement as a team over the course of a short season," JHS head tennis coach Paul Olson said. "All the girls played hard, but we came up just a little short. We’ll be back at practice tomorrow getting ready for the individual singles and doubles tournament here at home starting Friday."

Phoebe Olson will be a force in which to be reckoned in singles. The Blue Jay junior has consistently racked up wins at the Jays' No. 1 spot. Olson accounted for one of the Jays' wins Monday easily defeating Ashtin Roller 6-1, 6-0.

Senior Cora Wolsky along with Mya Henderson defeated the Demons' No. 2 doubles team in three sets. Wolsky and Henderson topped the Demon duo 6-4, fell 6-3 then fought to earn a 7-6 win in the final frame. Olson said that the WDA tournament should provide spectators and competitors with competitive matchups.

"The WDA is stacked this year and anyone with even a fleeting interest in tennis should come to TRAC and Bolinger Friday and Saturday to watch the girls play," Olson said. "There will be a lot of future college players on the court. Anybody who makes it to state out of the West will have earned it."
