No.1 Trojans roll by Warriors

Iowa City West keeps winning state titles, they keep graduating top-notch players and they keep rolling right along with new stars.

Amazing.

The top-ranked Trojans strolled by Cedar Rapids Washington, 68-46, in a Mississippi Valley Conference boys basketball game at Washington Friday night with an impressive display of offense and defense.

Iowa City West has captured three state titles in a row and has a glittering 81-3 record the past four seasons, including a perfect 6-0 mark this year.

The Trojans cruised Friday night with five underclassmen in the starting lineup for Coach Steve Bergman's juggernaut. David DiLeo, a 6-foot-7 senior, is nursing a deep thigh bruise and has played only one game this season while trying to get healthy.

Halupnik sparks Lions by Prairie

There were a lot of smiles on the faces of Linn-Mar's players and coaches as they came out of the locker room Friday night at Prairie.

None were bigger or brighter than the one on the face of senior Lane Halupnik. On a team where guards Jordan Bohannon and Nic Uhlir do the bulk of the scoring, Halupnik is the guy who does the little things.

Against the Hawks, Halupnik did some of the big things as well. He scored 14 points, including a pair of 3-point baskets as part of 14-2 run in the third quarter, and the Lions went on to post a 66-54 win before a near-capacity crowd in the Prairie gym.

"Lane really buys in defensively, he knows that is his role," said Linn-Mar Coach Chris Robertson. "He always guards the best player on the other team.

"It was nice to see tonight that he got a little offense going," added the Lion coach. "We needed that because we weren't moving the ball that well in the first half."

No. 3 J-Hawks slap No. 4 Prairie

Cedar Rapids Jefferson wrestling coach Dick Briggs has all the presents he needs for Christmas now.

The third-ranked J-Hawks put another ornament on their tree Thursday night with a 34-28 victory over fourth-ranked Prairie in a Mississippi Valley Conference showdown at Prairie.

Jefferson has collected victories over No. 4 Prairie, No.5 Iowa City West and No. 7 Linn-Mar this season and the campaign has barely started.

"It feels pretty good," said Briggs. "It's an early Christmas present. But this is a fun team. Hopefully we can keep it rolling throughout the season."

Briggs and Prairie Coach Blake Williams juggled their lineups Thursday, looking for an edge at different weights, and Jefferson prevailed by winning eight of the 14 bouts.

Ollinger leaving Jeff for Linn-Mar

Amanda Ollinger confirmed Wednesday night that she has played her last basketball game at Cedar Rapids Jefferson and will start attending Linn-Mar High School when school resumes in January after the holiday break.

Ollinger, a 6-foot-2 junior, is one of the most decorated two-sport athletes in the state. She has been named all-state in basketball and volleyball and has committed to the University of Iowa for basketball.

Ollinger said the transfer is for "personal reasons" and not related to basketball. Both of her parents, Scott and Bonnie Ollinger, work in Marion and the family will be moving from the Jefferson district to the Linn-Mar district in the coming weeks, making it more convenient for the family.
