River Kings light up the Day


Marquis Robinson, Eric Maddasion, Chamberlan and Quavon Jones won the 1,600 relay in 3:32.17, while the Kings also took second in the 400 relay and third in the 800 and sprint medley relays.

“Nathan Harden threw well again and improved both his shot put and discus, and he will earn a trip to Drake in both,” Smith said. “Delante Chamberlain and Stephen Baca had great nights running the hurdles and lowering their times. Marquis Robinson ran well in the open 200 and 400, while Eric Maddasion, Barrion Collins and Quavon Jones helped the relays.

“We scored in all the running events and a lot of times scoring two people in some events.”

The River Kings have a big week next week, hosting the 94th annual Gateway Classic on Tuesday before heading to Drake later in the week.

“We still have some work to do, and we have to keep focused on the end-of-the-year goals and getting better,” Smith said. “We qualified for the Drake Relays in the 100, shot put, discus, four-by-100, four-by-200 and four-by-400 relays. It will be nice to take a lot of kids to see a great sporting event in the Drake Relays.”

River Queens take 6th

DAVENPORT -- Kim Kaster led the Clinton girls to a sixth-place finish at the Jesse Day Relays by winning the 1,500-meter run in 5:12.42. The River Queens scored 52 points in the nine-team meet that was won by Davenport Assumption with 141.

Kaster also finished second in the 3,000. Assumption’s Elizabeth Mallon won the race in 10:59.45, with Kaster right behind at 11:01.78. The third-place runner was more than 16 seconds behind Kaster.

The River Queens scored 21 of their points in the field events, earning points in all four of them.

Erika Hammond was fourth in the shot put (36-8.25) and fifth in the discus (105-2), Elle Tubbs claimed fourth in the high jump (4-10), Raven Jones took fifth in the long jump (15-6.5) and Alayna Geronzin was sixth in the discus (98-1).
