Lentch says they're just 3-tenths of a point ahead... and, he adds the competition only get's tougher from here.  But, he says they're "veteran" performers and, can handle it.  Lentch says Jamestown finished 24th at this competition last year... and, was the runner-up in 1981.  He says if they win the competition... it will be their first.  The competition is taking place at four venues... including the University of Dayton... and, Xavier University in Cinncinati.  The semi-finals are this afternoon... with Jamestown performing at about 3:50 p.m.  The finals are tonight from 7 to 9 p.m.  Final results won't be known until about 11 to 11:30.
