JC softball sweeps Mayville State

Jamestown College swept a Dakota Athletic Conference softball doubleheader at Mayville State on Wednesday.

Kate Street threw a complete-game, three-hit shutout in the opener, a 9-0 Jimmie win.

Sarah Heinemann had an RBI single and Courtney Wong a two-run double in a three-run first inning for JC.

Amy Shadinger went 3-for-4 for the Jimmies, who had 15 hits in the game. Heinemann was 2-for-4 with two runs and two RBI, Wong was 2-for-4 with a run and two RBI, Kimberly Smith was 2-for-4 and scored two runs and Jessica Dupont had two hits.

The Jimmies scored twice in the top of the seventh to win the second game 5-4.

Kayla Price was 3-for-4 with two doubles and a solo homer leading off the fifth (her third of the season). Smith and Heinemann each went 2-for-4.

Heinemann got the win in relief, while Street struck out the final batter of the game to record a save. Street had started the game and pitched the first four innings.

The Jimmies (23-16, 11-7 DAC) will host Black Hills State and Dickinson State on Saturday and Sunday at McElroy Park in the final regular-season DAC games. JC will play Black Hills at 1 p.m. and Dickinson at 5 p.m. each day. The Jackets and Hawks will square off at 3 p.m. each day.

S.D. defender signs with JC soccer

Jessica Olstad of Spearfish, S.D., has signed a Dakota Athletic Conference letter of intent to play soccer at Jamestown College.

A senior defender/midfielder at Spearfish High School, Olstad is a five-year letter winner. She helped her high school team to a second-place finish in the 2004 state tournament. She has also played for the Rushmore Soccer Club club team.

"Jessica is a great addition to our soccer program," Jimmie soccer coach Phillip Bohn said. "She has good size and athleticism and has the ability to play in the midfield or defense, which will be of great benefit to the team."
