Camanche falls in 3

STANWOOD -- Camanche lost by a combined seven points while being swept by North Cedar in River Valley Conference volleyball Tuesday, giving the 13th-ranked (Class 3A) Indians their sixth loss of the season. After playing extra points in the opening set, Camanche fell 28-26, followed by a 25-23 loss in Set 2 and 25-22 in Set 3.

Libby Schnoor continued her prominent front-row performance, leading the team with 19 kills. Kylie Vogel had 28 assists and Julia Moore had eight kills. Brettan Hilgendorf led the team with three aces alongside six kills.

It was an offnight defensively for the Indians, who tallied only 23 digs combined as a team. Schnoor led all passers with 11 digs.

Midland sweeps Irish

WYOMING -- Despite racking up 26 points in Set 2, Prince of Peace couldn’t avoid the sweep, losing 25-18, 28-26, 25-18 Tuesday at Midland in the Tri-Rivers Conference.

The loss dropped the Irish to 1-10 on the year.

Sydney Laufenberg took 39 swings for hits, landing 13 of them for kills. However, the Irish were a combined minus-.200 hitting for the match, with the next closest hitter, Rebecca Divarco, converting three kills. Erin Kuehn led the team with nine assists, while Krista Atkinson had a team-high 19 digs. Atkinson was followed by libero Hunter Chapman with 18.

Laufenberg also racked up five blocks, following solid net play by Miranda Schnier, who had seven.

Set 2 -- the closest Prince of Peace came to avoiding the sweep -- was the only game in which the Irish didn’t hit in the negative. Otherwise, the team tallied 26 hitting errors against 17 kills.

Rebels lose lead

GOOSE LAKE -- Northeast halted the Panthers through two sets Tuesday at home. But, after the Rebels dropped a tight 25-22 Set 3, a three-game turnaround for Monticello was under way.

The Rebels fell in five to Monticello 19-25, 22-25, 25-22, 25-23, 15-5, dropping Northeast to 6-8. Libero Baylie Parson had another breakout performance with 23 digs and Kelsey Carder added 12. Addie Oberman, Breanne Butler and Peyton Gray tied for the team lead with five kills apiece, with Butler also dishing out six assists.

  • 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.
