Soeken is also a key member of the Prairie volleyball team that is ranked No. 10 in Class 5A.


Prairie tops Lions for L-M title

The 10th-ranked Cedar Rapids Prairie volleyball team bumped off No. 7 Linn-Mar, 21-12, 21-19, in the championship match of the Linn-Mar Invitational Saturday.

Prairie reached the finals with victories over Davenport Assumption and Hempstead. Linn-Mar advanced with triumphs over Pleasant Valley and Marion

The Marion Indians, who are ranked No. 2 in Class 4A, topped Solon in the quarterfinals before losing to Linn-Mar.


Rima stars as Prairie falls to Rams

Here’s how Prairie, after dropping two straight at home, can win football games:

Make sure senior speed demon and escape artist Jalen Rima gets the pigskin.

In Prairie's 42-28 second-half shootout loss to Dubuque Senior on Friday night, Rima touched the ball 11 times and accounted for 249 yards. He had five pass receptions for 116 yards, three carries for 50 yards and three kickoff returns for 83 more.

The state champion 400-meter sprinter also scored two of Prairie’s four touchdowns.

"He’s a big-time player, a big-time athlete,” said Prairie quarterback Tyler Nunemaker. “Every time he gets the ball, he comes up big.”

But scoring points doesn’t seem to be the Hawks’ problem after starting the season with a win over Linn-Mar before losing last week to Jefferson. They’ve averaged 32 points a game.
