Prophets, Hoffman in top 20 at state golf

BLOOMINGTON, Ill. — Morrison’s Reid Hoffman was tied for 17th place Friday after first-round play at the Illinois boys golf state tournament.

Hoffman, a senior, shot 39s on both sides for a 78 total on the par-72 Prairie Vista Golf Course layout. He made birdie-3s on Nos. 1 and 6 but also had a triple-bogey 8 on No. 7 as he tied five other players at the midway point.

Nick McCall of Winnetka North Shore Country Day made five birdies, four on the back nine, as he fired a 2-under 70 to take a one-stroke lead in the medalist race.

Fulton senior Logan Rascher had a rough day in his first state-meet competition.

Rascher shot a 55-49—104 and was tied for 107th place out of 110 golfers. Rascher made a pair of pars on the back side but also had two 10s on the front.

The tournament concludes with 18 holes today.

Prophets girls 11th

DECATUR, Ill. — Led by Annie Sandrock, one of five seniors on the squad, Prophetstown shot a 399 and was in 11th place Friday after the first round of the Class 1A Illinois girls golf state tournament.

Sandrock was in an eight-way tie for 49th place after shooting an opening-round 90 at the par-72 Red Tail Run Golf Course. She had three pars on each side as she shot 43 on the front nine and 47 on the back side.

  • 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.
