Camanche falls in 3


The loss marked the seventh in nine matches for the Rebels, whose last non-tournament win came in the season-opener against Bellevue. On Saturday, they’ll travel west for the Anamosa Invitational.

Warriors win see-saw

MILES -- A back-and-forth affair took place Tuesday at Easton Valley. By the end, Calamus-Wheatland found itself on top.

The Warriors and River Hawks traded the first four sets before Cal-Wheat clinched the decider, winning in five -- 15-25, 25-17, 21-25, 25-16, 15-8. The winners amassed 16 aces while digging up 78 balls in the win.

Tessa Kauffmann led the back row defensively with 22 digs, while Katie Banowetz and McKenna Luepker each had 13. Stephanie Petersen led the offense with nine kills, followed by six each from Banowetz and Bailey Moellenbeck.

Cardinals fall in four

MOUNT VERNON -- Maquoketa pulled it together in Set 3 after getting blown out in Sets 1 and 2. Mount Vernon put its game back together, taking Tuesday’s match 25-16, 25-8, 23-25, 25-11.

The Mustangs, ranked eighth in Class 4A, were led by Hannah Whitley’s 14 kills, with teammate Wynne Vandersall racking up seven aces.

Cougars top Comets

BELLEVUE -- Ali Reeg dug up 25 to lead Bellevue on Tuesday, but it wasn’t enough to overcome Cascade at home. Bellevue was swept 25-15, 25-21, 25-19.

Maddie Hiland added 18 digs for the Comets to go along with her team-high eight kills. Ashley Gisemann chipped in seven kills and 11 digs.

  • 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.
