Volleyball: Queens earn another MAC sweep

DAVENPORT — Clinton finished off its fifth sweep during Mississippi Athletic Conference play with a 25-16, 25-12, 25-7 victory Monday night at Davenport West. “I think coaches will tell you its a good sign when you sweep in three and the other team scores diminishing points in each game,” Clinton co-coach Mark Massey said.

The win was Clinton’s second against West this season. The other came at the North Scott Invitational.

Erin Wenzel had 19 kills to lead Clinton (18-6, 6-1 MAC), while Elle Tubbs added 10. The River Queens committed just six hitting errors and had a .410 hitting percentage (kills minus errors, with the total then divided by total attacks).

Massey also was pleased with the .974 serving efficiency. Monique Harris served seven aces, Jordan Nelson six.

The River Queens are off until Saturday, when they play in the Bettendorf Invitational that includes No. 1 Bettendorf and No. 2 Ankeny.

  • 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.
