Blue Jays Roundup: Swimming hosts, loses to West Fargo Tuesday

Jan. 23—JAMESTOWN — Members of the Jamestown High School swimming and diving team had two days to rest before they had to get back down to business.

The Jays hosted West Fargo in a non-conference dual on Tuesday evening. The Packers won the contest 106-73. Jamestown's next meet on the schedule is slated for Jan. 30 at West Fargo Sheyenne.

While muscles might have been tired after the Jamestown Octagon contest last weekend, the Jays put on their caps and went to work on Tuesday.

In the 200 yard medley relay, the Blues Jays' 'A' squad finished in second place with a time of 1:46.94. Jamestown also found success in the 200 and 400 freestyle relays, finishing in second in both events.

The Blue Jays won three of the 12 events. Finn Moser won the 200 and 500 freestyle races clocking times of 1:54.02 and 5:12.99 respectively. Bodi Haglund won the 100 breaststroke, touching the wall at 1:08.84.

Bismarck High beat Bismarck Century last week and on Tuesday, the Blue Jays had to pay for the loss.

"It's never nice to come into someone's house after they've had a rough loss especially when it's Century and they've lost four games in three years," JHS head boys basketball coach Jason Carroll said. "It would have been nice to be a little bit closer but that's a good basketball team. They did some really nice things tonight."

Century wound up outscoring the Jays 94-50 to advance to 7-1 in the West Region and 11-1 overall. With the loss, the Jays now sit at 1-7 in the conference and 3-10 overall.

"Our effort was pretty good," Carroll said. "We struggled a little bit early in the game to take care of the ball and that gave them an early lead and once a team like that has an early lead, any mistake you make they are going to take advantage of it and that's what they did."

Century was led by Isaiah Schafer who scored 24 of Century's 94 points. Kale Schommer chipped in another 16 while Drew Kempel contributed 10 to the Patriots' team score.

Jamestown was led by Dalton Lamp and Noah Meissner who combined for one more point than Schafer scored. Ryan Larson pitched in another 10 points.

Carroll and the Jays will be back on the court Friday hosting Mandan. The Braves are the one WDA team the Jays have beaten so far this season. Carroll and company sunk Mandan 90-78 back on Dec. 15.

"We know we can have success against Mandan — we've proved it already this year," Carroll said. "We had some good vibes that night in Mandan and hopefully some of that will carry over to Friday and we can get some positive things going here."
