Adam McDermott commits to North Dakota

Another member of the McDermott clan will be playing Division I college basketball next year.

Adam McDermott, a 6-foot-4 senior at Xavier High School who averaged 16.5 points last season, committed to the University of North Dakota Monday night after taking an official visit to the school in Grand Fork, N.D., this past weekend.

If Adam McDermott has half the success in college as his cousin - former Creighton All-American Doug McDermott - he'll have a great career.

"He's a big role model for me," McDermott said Tuesday. "It's crazy to think where he's come from and what he's done."



2 young RoughRiders headed to all-star game

Erik Foley and Ryan Larkin are just 17 years old, but they've already reached the Tier I level of junior hockey with the Cedar Rapids RoughRiders and they've already been selected for a prestigious all-star game.

Foley and Larkin, who both turned 17 in June, will play in the All-American Prospects Game in Buffalo, N.Y., this Thursday night before making their debut with the RoughRiders in the season opener Saturday night at the Cedar Rapids Ice Arena against Dubuque.

The All-American Prospects Game will feature 42 of the top American-born prospects who are eligible for the 2015 NHL draft. The game will be played at the First Niagara Center, home of the NHL's Buffalo Sabers.


Sarah Renner wins Metro Spotlight Award

Linn-Mar senior Sarah Renner is the winner of the Metro Spotlight Award for high school girls this week, the Metro Sports Report announced Sunday.

Renner is an outstanding student-athlete at Linn-Mar who excels in volleyball, track and the classroom, where she carries a 4.1 GPA with a heavy load of Advanced Placement courses.

Renner, 5-foot-11, has been a three-year starter on the Linn-Mar volleyball team. She has contributed to a balanced attack with 55 kills, 163 assists, 67 digs, 42 blocks, five aces and a 94.2 percentage on her serves (81 of 86). The Lions are enjoying a successful season with a 14-5 record.


Sean Murphy wins Metro Spotlight Award

Xavier junior Sean Murphy has won the Metro Spotlight Award for high school boys this week, the Metro Sports Report announced Sunday.

Murphy, a 5-foot-9 junior, returned two kickoffs for a touchdowns Friday night as the Class 3A top-ranked Saints defeated DeWitt Central, 59-3, in a district game in DeWitt.

Murphy raced 96 yards for a touchdown with the opening kickoff. He was untouched behind a bevy of blockers for Xavier, which has a tradition of successful special teams.


Warriors jump to top in 4A football

The people who vote in the high school football polls have been keeping a keen eye on the Washington Warriors all season.

The Warriors began the year in the No.3 spot in the Class 4A poll in the Des Moines Register rankings. Then they climbed to No. 2 and now they're sitting all alone at the top of the poll after demolishing then-No. 9 Linn-Mar, 43-3, Friday night.

Washington got some help in the rankings Friday night from the Lombardi family. Rocky Lombardi, the son of former Washington coach Tony Lombardi, passed for 206 yards and two touchdowns as West Des Moines Valley upset Dowling Catholic, 24-21, an outcome that knocked Dowling out of the No. 1 spot in the poll and opened the door for the Warriors.
