Steamers' title run ends

SPRING VALLEY, Ill. — Kewanee ended Fulton’s four-year run as Three Rivers Conference golf champion Tuesday, claiming the title by eight strokes over runner-up Princeton at Spring Creek Golf Course.

The Boilermakers, who finished third behind Fulton and Morrison last year and weren’t even in the conference when the Steamers started their title run in 2009, shot a combined 332-stroke total. Five of Kewanee’s six golfers who competed in the tournament a year ago returned this fall.

Princeton, one of six schools that joined the league this season, finished with a 340 total. Riverdale and Peru St. Bede tied for third at 342, while Fulton was fifth with a 348. Morrison (358) took seventh, Erie (390) was 12th and Prophetstown (421) took 15th.

Jake Tysma of Riverdale defeated Tyler Nelson of Kewanee in a playoff for medalist honors after each shot a 5-over-par 77. Griffin Kozel of Amboy was the only repeat finisher in the top five. He took fourth with an 81, one spot lower than his 2012 finish.

Fulton put a pair of golfers in the top 10. Brett Terrock placed sixth with an 83, while Matt Dail took 10th with an 85.

Ben Tegeler led Morrison’s contingent with an 87, Koby Kuhnen shot an 89 to lead Erie and Grant Ames had a 97 for Prophetstown.

  • 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.
