Emma Hillerud and Sydney Fisher have been competing in gymnastics since they were toddlers. The pair are the only seniors on this season's Blue Jay gymnastics team roster.

Olivia Sorlie put her name on the map as one of the best golfers in the West Region Tuesday.

Sorlie, a junior for the Blue Jay golf team, carded an 86 to tie her best round of the year and crack into the top-10 at the Bismarck Legacy invite.

The Jays placed seventh out of 10 competing teams with a score of 380. Only two strokes separated the Jays from sixth place and three from the fifth spot. The collective 380 was the Jays' best score of the season by eight strokes.

Bismarck Century won the invite, carding a 337 while Mandan wasn't far behind with a 340. Mandan's Anna Huettl won her second-straight meet with a four-over 76.

Mylee Michel turned in the Jays' third best score of the day with a career low of 97, a score that just missed teammate Isabel LeFevre who carded a 96. Belle Sjostrom and McKenna Nieswaag completed the 6-man roster with scores of 118 and 123.


The Jays have a 10 day break ahead of them but on Sept. 8, they will be back in action at Dickinson's Heart River Course. Dickinson's Invite is slated to begin at 10 a.m.
