Queens go 2-2 at North Scott


Camanche opened the invitational with a blowout win over Easton Valley 21-8, 21-18. Schnoor led the way with 10 kills on 14 attempts to go along with 15 digs. Libero Lindsey Grams added 14 digs.

Meanwhile, the Rebels opened the tournament slowly, falling 2-0 to both Bellevue and Mediapolis. Camanche followed with a three-set win over the Bulldogs. The Indians dropped Set 1 21-17 but responded with tight 21-18, 15-9 victories during pool play. Schnoor again led the team with 10 kills, but the difference to Davis was his team’s play defensively.

Schnoor, Grams, Hilgendorf and Jordan Goldbeck combined for 36 digs, allowing Vogel to dish out 20 assists. Two matches later, in the championship against Mediapolis, Schnoor and Grams dug up 20 and 28, respectively, helping Vogel to 23 assists in a 25-17, 25-22 sweep. The Indians also combined for 11 blocks — Schnoor with four, and Morgan Peasley and Julia Moore with three each.

  • 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.
