Cross Country: Prince of Peace shines in Tri Rivers


"We talked about trying a few things," he said. "The last couple of meets we've finally figured out what we need to do in the races. As a team, I think all of us are coming together. We're starting to peak at the right time."

Jankowski's journey to the finish line was especially difficult — midway through the race, the junior runner lost his shoe and finished the last two miles in his sock. Howard said the team "will have to double-knot those shoe laces" for next week's race.

Sabers' Marti 2nd

CENTER POINT — Central DeWitt's Kyle Marti finished second behind Center Point-Urbana's Josh Yeager during the WaMaC conference meet Thursday. Marti led the Sabers to a 11th-place overall finish in the boys race. Maquoketa was 12th overall, led by Cale Gent's 28th-best time.

For the WaMaC girls, DeWitt placed seventh behind Mikayla Coyle's 28th-best finish. The Cardinals were 13th, led by Janie Saunders' 52nd-place run. More than 250 runners competed in both races.

  • 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.
