Carrier is a state champ


“I mainly focused on myself and fed off what my teammates were bowling,” she said. “I didn’t have any idea what other girls were shooting.”

Carrier followed up with a 220, and although five other players scored higher, none scored well enough to get any closer than 27 pins behind Carrier.

The successful day already have Carrier and her teammates looking for a top-two team finish next year. All six girls in the lineup Monday will be back.

“It’s a young team still,” Perdieu said. “They’re looking forward to it already. It was a great day out there.”

  • Jones leaves UNO program

    Jalen Jones is done with basketball — for now, anyway.
    The 6-foot-5 Clinton High grad who had committed to play for Nebraska-Omaha, has left the program, and according to his Facebook page, has enrolled at Kirkwood Community College in Cedar Rapids.
    The enrollment office at the community college confirmed that Jones was registered for classes this fall at Kirkwood. Kirkwood coach Bryan Petersen, a Clinton High graduate, declined to comment and gave no indication that Jones would play basketball for the Eagles this winter.
    "College basketball isn't for everybody," Clinton coach Nick Lawrence said. "A little time away might do him some good."
    Jones came home to Clinton after spending just a few days with the Mavericks, and enrolled to Kirkwood shortly thereafter.
    Jones, the Herald's Player of the Year, averaged 19 points a game for the River Kings in his senior season and finished with the second-most rebounds with 160.
    He shot 41 percent on the floor and 28 percent from 3-point territory. He committed to Omaha before last season started in October.
