Northeast takes second at RVC meet

GOOSE LAKE — Northeast defended its home track on Thursday night by finishing second in the River Valley Conference girls track and field meet.

Camanche finished fourth in the meet with 61 points; Northeast had 82. Cascade won by a landslide with 161 points.

Aleenah Marcucci swept both the 100- and 400-meter hurdles races. She took the 100 title with a time of 15.22 seconds and won the 400 at 1:08.50. Her 100 time almost became her season best. Back on April 24 during the Drake Relays, Marcucci finished at 15.20.

Brenna Seeser also won a conference title for the Rebels in the shot put. Her winning throw was 36 feet, 7 inches, which two feet farther than the second-place result that belonged to Camanche’s Courtney Schnoor (35-0.5). Seeser’s best throw of the season came Monday when she tossed 36-10.

Northeast’s 800 relay team finished second at 1:50.16 behind Cascade’s 1:48.31. The four who ran for the Rebels were Peyton Gray, Marcucci, Rylee Dickey and Tierra Hildebrandt. Their time was the best of the season even if the hand-held time (1:50.16) were converted to fully automated (1:50.40).

Hildebrandt also finished second in the 100 in 12.38, followed by Bellevue’s Anne Nolting in 12.56 secondsand Camanche’s Addison McDanel in 13.16.

Meanwhile, for Camanche, Libby Schnoor won the high jump with a leap of 4-10. Schnoor also finished second in the 800 at 2:32.42.

  • 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.
