Prairie High School - Cedar Rapids, Iowa

VanDraska powers Prairie to title

DUBUQUE - Tysen VanDraska ran away with top honors and led Cedar Rapids Prairie to a convincing victory at the Mississippi Division cross country meet Thursday at the Dubuque Soccer Complex.

VanDraska toured the 5K race in 15 minutes, 29.5 seconds. He defeated teammate Cam Steffens by 29.3 seconds.

The Prairie Hawks also finished 5th, 8th and 9th with Chris Oehlert, Jake Moore and Colton LaGrange to end the meet with 25 points.

Steve Culpepper of Xavier placed seventh. Samuel Eck of Washington was 10th.



Gorman nipped for Mississippi title

DUBUQUE - Reagan Gorman of Cedar Rapids Washington finished second at the Mississippi Division cross country meet Thursday at the Dubuque Soccer Complex.

Mary Arch of Iowa City High won the 5K race in 18 minutes, 27.3 seconds. She edged Gorman, a freshman, by 1.5 seconds.

Jenny Dickes of Xavier finished sixth in 19:25.7.

Iowa City High won the team championship.



Rima plans to face Muscatine Friday

Cedar Rapids Prairie football star Jalen Rima said Wednesday night that he plans to play Friday night when the Hawks host Muscatine in a Class 4A district game at John Wall Field.

Rima strained a ligament in his left knee during a 28-21 loss to Iowa City High Oct. 2. The original diagnosis was that Rima would miss two or three weeks, but it appears he'll miss only one game before returning to action.

Rima said he's been practicing all week and is working to strengthen his leg. He leads Prairie with nine touchdowns and has scored in four different ways this season.

Soph QB sparks No. 6 Warriors

Cedar Rapids Washington’s star players came through as always in Thursday night’s 39-14 Kingston Stadium romp over Prairie.

But who would have thought the game-breakers would end up being a 5-foot-7 linebacker who scored his third touchdown in two weeks and a novice quarterback who warmed up by throwing five touchdown passes earlier in the evening in the sophomore game.

Bryan Kunde played only the first half in the sixth-ranked Warriors' one-sided win in the sophomore contest but ran for one touchdown besides throwing for five. He was then called into duty for the varsity early in the second quarter when starting signal-caller Andrew Dostal was knocked out of the game with a hit to the stomach on a hard tackle.

(Dostal himself was subbing for TJ Vogel, who was in a brace after hurting his knee last week against Ottumwa.)
