JAMESTOWN — The North Dakota High School Activities Association has officially announced that the 2023-24 and 2024-25 Class B girls basketball state tournaments will be held at the Jamestown Civic Center.

“We think it’s an incredible opportunity for Jamestown,” said Pam Fosse, Jamestown Civic Center director. “We’ve had previous state tournaments and I think the community and organizations involved always step forward and provide everyone with a wonderful experience.”

The Civic Center seats up to 6,500 people and has 1,000 portable seats, according to the Civic Center's website.

The 2023-24 state tournament will look different from previous years after a three-class system was recently approved. Some local high school teams that have a chance to participate in the state tournament include Kidder County, Linton/Hazelton-Moffit-Braddock, Medina/Pingree-Buchanan and Edgeley/Kulm-Montpelier.

“I think Class B fans are one of the biggest supporters of our teams,” Fosse said. “So, I look forward to a massive tournament and we hope to host it for years to come.”


As of April 18, girls basketball won't be the only state tournament that will be held in Jamestown over the next two years as there will also be the cross country tournament, the 2024-25 gymnastics championships, the 2024-25 class B boys golf tournament and the 2023-24 class B baseball tournament.
