Senior trio first team nod

CLINTON — The first team of the All-River Valley Conference North has some great talent, including three area young ladies who close their careers with all-conference honors.

The three who made the North’s first team in the area are Northeast’s Addie Oberman, Camanche’s Kylie Vogel and Ali Reeg from Bellevue. All three girls are seniors.

All three closed their careers with the best years of their high school careers in which Reeg and Oberman scored more than 1,000 points in their careers while Vogel was six points shy of joining that group.

Much alike the other two who made the first team, Reeg meant so much to her team. Comets coach Tim Roth couldn’t give enough compliments to Reeg, who will go to this year’s Iowa Conference champion Loras College to continue her playing career.

“She was a real contributor to our team,” Roth said. “She had a huge sophomore season, and she had a good senior season. She shot the ball better, and she knew she had to step up and score more for us to succeed.”

Reeg was the leading scorer for Bellevue by scoring 13 points per game and scoring just under 300 points this season. Reeg led the team with 45 3-pointers, which was third-best in the entire conference behind Vogel and Camanche’s Lindsey Grams.

The 14 points a game for Reeg was second-best in the conference behind Oberman.

Roth believes Reeg’s best quality that she will take with her to the Iowa Conference is her vision.

“She can see the floor really well and create plays,” Roth said. “She didn’t do that as much this year, because she had to score, but she will play that role really well for Loras.”

Oberman, meanwhile, certainly had the ability to score as the conference’s top scorer with just under 18 points a game. That average was good for ninth-best in Class 3A along with the likes of Ms. Basketball 2014 Alexis Conaway from MOC-Floyd Valley, who led all 3A players 21 points a game.

  • 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.
