2011-12 Season

The most successful season in Jamestown College women’s basketball history took place during the 2011-12 season. The record breaking season was capped off by a Sweet 16 appearance in the NAIA National Tournament and finished up with a final national rating of No. 12 in the country. The Jimmies ended the season with a record of 27-5, the most wins and best record ever in program history. In the process, the Jimmies won the Dakota Athletic Conference tournament and the DAC regular season title, going undefeated throughout the conference schedule. The Jimmies look to continue their tradition of success in the upcoming season.

The Program

Along with their high octane offense, the Jimmies pride themselves on pressure defense, hard work, and a family atmosphere. “Our goal each year is going to be to win the National Tournament,” Coach Ulland said. “More importantly, though, all of our athletes will graduate with a degree in their hands. I feel you will receive one of the best educations at Jamestown College. This is one of the finest colleges, academically and athletically, in the Midwest.” Each of the last two years, the team has been honored as an NAIA Academic All-American Team.

The Players

Among the many accolades the Jimmies have received the past two years, Junior Bridget Schuneman was named an NAIA All-American along with being named DAC MVP and First Team All-AII. Sophomore Hannah Steele and Junior Amber Ramlo also garnered post season awards which included First Team All-DAC and All-AII, respectively.  The Jimmies will have to find a way to replace Kellie Schuneman’s successful career after she graduated.  Kellie was a first team all-DAC performer, scored 1079 career points, and was a two time Daktronics-NAIA Scholar-Athlete.
