Upper weights power Sabers


“One opportunity closed, but another opened up for Feldpausch to help as a coach and another opened for Lucas,” Vance said.

Enyeart pinned Dylan Wagner in 1 minute, 29 seconds to get things rolling for the Sabers. They lost the next match before reeling off five wins in a row, three of them forfeits. Schroeder’s 12-2 major decision at 170 pounds cut the deficit to 25-19.

Central DeWitt pulled even when Chase Kraklio won by forfeit at 182, then took the lead on a forfeit win by Lucas Franzen at 195. Senior Riley McDowell then sealed the team victory with a pin at 220.

The story for Camanche is almost the complete opposite of Central DeWitt. The Indians are loaded with talent in the lower weights but injuries and eligibility issues have thinned out the upper weights, although coach Brent Carstensen said there still is a possibility the Indians could fill all but one weight by the sectional meet.

The Indians got a key win off the mat before they took on Central DeWitt. They won the coin flip before the match that determines which team sends out a wrestler first. By winning that they were able to insert Dawson Sally to take a forfeit at 113 against the Sabers and move up Jeremy Sorem from 113 to 120, Noah Everson from 120 to 126, Brice Everson from 126 to 132 and Jimmy Zhang from 132 to 138.

“We were trying to get all eight of our wrestlers involved,” Carstensen said.

It also gave Brice Everson, Camanche’s lone ranked wrestler, another chance to step up a weight and go against bigger competition. He came through with a 10-1 victory against Central DeWitt’s Ryeland Doolittle at 132.

“That really gives me an edge so when I wrestle stronger kids at 126 I can handle them,” said Everson, who also moved up Tuesday in a 3-2 loss to Northeast’s top wrestler, Tyler Schoon.

  • 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.
