Schreiber wins dual; Coppess 2nd at tri

BETTENDORF — To be the best, you have to beat the best. Brittany Coppess came close to doing that Tuesday at Hidden Hills Golf Course in a triangular meet between North Scott, Clinton and Pleasant Valley.

Coppess finished with a nine-hole 42, 5 over par. She turned in three birdies, including one on a par-6. However, she bogeyed the last hole to give meet champion Rachele Miller a chance to win it, and she did.

“She stuck right there with her the whole time,” Clinton coach Dan Sullivan said. “It was a fairly well round for her; we wish she would have ended stronger, but to lose by one to a top-five golfer in the state is nothing to hang your head about.”

Clinton finished third as a team with 235 strokes while Pleasant Valley, led by Miller, won with 176.

Individual results for Clinton were: Hailey Gooch and Amy Fier with 64 strokes and Brittani Moore with 65 shots.

“The next four weeks are going to be a really good test for us,” Sullivan said.

Schreiber prevails

CLINTON — Prince of Peace golfer Sydney Schreiber won the seven-person dual between the Irish and the East Buchanan Buccaneers.

Schreiber won with 55 strokes, while Caitlyn Jacobs turned in a 59. The Buccaneers brought five golfers, and their top golfers were Jordy Meyer (58) and Adrienne Staton (59).

Schreiber ended her day with two bogeys on the final two holes to solidify the dual victory.

Evers ends up 2nd

CLINTON — For the second consecutive day, Prince of Peace junior Conner Evers finished as the runner-up on his home course. This time, it was to East Buchanan’s Chris Cooksley. Cooksley turned in a 38 while Evers shot a 41.

Cooksley birdied the second-to-last hole to finish 2 over par, while Evers went 5 over par that included a bookend of bogeys.

  • 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.
