Team Standings

1. Linn-Mar 34, 2. Jefferson 59, 3. Xavier 80, 4. Kennedy 81, 5. Washington 105, 6. Waterloo East 178.



J-Hawks squash Prairie, 55-37

Last week against fifth-ranked Washington, Jefferson played the Warriors to a 14-14 tie for more than three quarters until fatigue admittedly set in and Washington collected a 27-14 victory.

On Friday night in a game that started late and was prolonged by a series of heat-related cramps on both sides, the J-Hawks never let up and poured it on Prairie, 55-37, on Prairie's home field.

"This was a huge, huge win for us,” fourth-year Jefferson coach Brian Webb said. “It’s been 14 years since we’ve beaten Prairie. And I know we haven’t scored this many points against a Mississippi Valley team since I’ve been here.

“I’m so proud of these kids," he said. "Tonight, they just pushed and pushed and kept pushing.”

Jefferson controlled the ball most of the night, running twice as many plays as Prairie and piling up 28 first downs.



Neumeyer leads Xavier to golf win

IOWA CITY - Matt Neumeyer shot a 2-over-par 38 Thursday to lead Xavier to victory in a four-team MVC boys golf meet at Pleasant Valley Golf Course.

The Saints finished at 163, five shots better than Iowa City High. Jefferson was fourth with a 178. Nile Happel led the J-Hawks with a 39.

TEAM STANDINGS: 1. Xavier 163; 2. Iowa City High 168; 3. Dubuque Hempstead 174; 4. Jefferson 178

XAVIER: Matt Neumeyer 38, Tyler Breitbach 39, Luke Winker 40, Brody Robinson 46, Brad Karpick 46

Kuba will join Indian Hills softball

Cedar Rapids Jefferson senior Erin Kuba plans to continue her softball career at Indian Hills Community College, according to an announcement from the Jefferson softball team's twitter account.

Kuba hit .433 with two home runs and 27 RBIs this season. The J-Hawks placed fourth at the Class 5A state tournament and finished with a 36-9 record.

Kuba was named first team All-Metro and first team All-Mississippi Valley Conference this season. She is an excellent defensive third baseman.


Williams paces Kennedy by J-Hawks

Jessica Williams was a triple-winner Tuesday night as Kennedy topped Jefferson, 124-61, in a Mississippi Valley Conference swimming meet at Jefferson.

Williams won the 500 freestyle and swam on the triumphant 200 medley relay and 200 freestyle relay.

Maddie Bagby, Raquel Green, Alicia Miltner, Kassidy Lovig, MacKinzee Macho and Peyton Ross were double-winners for the Cougars. Macho captured the 100 fly and 100 back.

Jaylee Chung claimed the 50 free and 100 free for Jefferson.



Warriors escape Jeff's upset bid

Cedar Rapids Washington fullback Tavion Stewart had carried the ball only once all day when he took a simple handoff in the fourth quarter and saw nothing but daylight between him and the end zone far away.

He had one thought as he raced 75 yards to paydirt.

"Don't stop running. Keep going. Don't slow down," he said.

Stewart's long gallop snapped a 14-14 tie and helped the Warriors beat Jefferson, 27-14, in the season opener Saturday afternoon at Kingston Stadium.

The cross-town rivals were supposed to play Friday night, but a severe thunderstorm sent everyone home early and made the teams wait another day to knock heads.

Washington was ranked as high as No. 2 in some preseason polls after playing for the Class 4A state title last year, but the Warriors had their hands full for three quarters against a team that finished with a 4-6 record last season.



Xavier cancels game; 3 others postponed

None of the high school football games that were scheduled for the Metro area were played Friday night due to the heavy thunderstorms and lightning that passed through the area.

Xavier High School canceled its home game against Dowling Catholic. The game will not be rescheduled. Dowling is unable to make another round trip from West Des Moines on Saturday for a possible makeup date.

The other three games in the Metro area were postponed until Saturday.

Washington will face Jefferson at 2 p.m. Saturday at Kingston Stadium.

Prairie will play Linn-Mar at 5 p.m. Saturday at Linn-Mar Stadium.

Marion will host Mount Vernon at 7 p.m. Saturday at Thomas Park.


Lindwall leads Warriors to win

IOWA CITY - Frank Lindwall shot a 2-under par 34 to gain medalist honors and lead the Washington boys golf team to top honors in a Mississippi Valley Conference quad meet Thursday at Finkbine Golf Course.

The Warriors edged Iowa City West by one shot to take the team win. Washington scored 155. West finished at 156.

Jefferson, led by Adam Van Oort's 42, finished fourth with a 195.



Penning wins diving for J-Hawks

IOWA CITY - Anna Penning won the diving competition for the Jefferson J-Hawks in their Mississippi Valley Conference swimming meet against Iowa City West on Tuesday.

Iowa City West captured all of the swimming races and won the meet, 134-50.
