Warriors trip Irish in 5

CLINTON — Calamus-Wheatland bounced back from an 0-2 deficit to Prince of Peace to sweep the next three sets, stealing a tight one from the Irish 20-25, 19-25, 25-22, 25-14, 15-8 on Thursday at Central Catholic Auditorium. The Warriors did it behind a slew of tough serving; Stephanie Petersen and Katie Banowetz each had six aces, Sydney Kerr and McKenna Luepker had four apiece, and Cal-Wheat compiled 24 aces as a team.

The Irish’s Sydney Laufenberg posted nine kills, her second-highest total of the season, in spite of the loss. Prince of Peace fell to 1-9, while the Warriors improved to 4-4.

Defensively, Hunter Chapman posted a season-high 35 digs as the Prince of Peace libero. From the service line, Erin Kuehn was 21 of 23 with five aces, leading the team.

Luepker was the big hitter for Cal-Wheat with 13 kills. Kerr led all players with 22 assists.

The Irish travel to Wyoming for a Tri-Rivers Conference match against Midland on Tuesday for their next contest. Meanwhile, the Warriors will play Saturday at the Lisbon Invitational tournament.

Addie Oberman led Northeast with 12 kills while Bailey Parson dug up 18. Northeast also saw a solid blocking performance by Ashley Kruse, who led all players with three despite the loss.

The Rebels fell to 6-7, below .500 for the first time this season, and are 1-3 in the River Valley Conference.

  • 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.
