Thursday's girls tennis match between Jamestown High School and Bismarck Century went down to the wire at Bolinger Tennis Courts.

The Blue Jays' doubles team of Lauryn Hibl and Phoebe Olson rallied from a set down to comeback and win 6-7, 6-3, 7-5 and give Jamestown a 5-4 victory over Bismarck Century. The Blue Jays claimed their first win of the year and sit at 1-5, while the Patriots moved to 3-3.

"It was a close match from the beginning," said Jamestown coach Paul Olson. "We were down about 5-4 in the third set and we went out and put together three good games in a row. Phoebe had a good service game, we broke their serve and (Hibl) had her best service game of the night to get us the win."

The Blue Jays split the first six single matches with the Patriots, as Olson, Courtney Peterson and Cora Wolsky picked up victories.

"We had good performances. Phoebe played good, especially on the singles side," Olson said. "Courtney was vintage Courtney.

"Cory Wolsky picked up a big win at No. 5 singles. She went out and played a Century girl that has a ton of upside. The first set slipped away then put together the best two sets of her singles career."

Jamestown kept the pressure on Century as Peterson and Annie Johnson gave the Blue Jays back the lead at 4-3. But Century won at No. 3 singles, leaving it up to Hibl and Olson.

"They asked about who won (the other matches) and we didn't tell them so they could focus on their match," Olson said. "They figured out that they would decide it. For a freshman and sophomore, they stepped up big time."

Olson added about Hibl: "Lauryn lost a heart-breaking singles match. She took about 15 minutes off after playing a 2-hour, 40-minute match and played three sets of doubles. For her to gut it through and step up big time, she deserves a ton of credit."

Jamestown travels to West Fargo Sheyenne on Friday (April 26) for a dual with the Mustangs at 5 p.m.

Ford, Kallenbach state qualify

Jamestown High School sophomore Meghan Ford (3,200 meter) and senior Abby Kallenbach (triple jump, long jump) qualified for the Class A state track and field meet in their respective events Thursday at the Fargo Shanley Invitational at Concordia College in Moorhead, Minn.

Ford won the girls 3,200 by 1 minutes, 26 seconds with a time of 10:54.41. She is now qualified in the 800, 1600 and 3200, raches she ran last spring at state.

Kallenbach leaped 34 feet, 10.75 inches in the triple jump and a 16-8.5 in the long jump to punch her ticket to state in the events. Amanda Sargeant won the pole vault with a leap of 8-9, which was six inches better than second place.
