Volleyball: Indians and Cardinals 2-0 at Northeast

GOOSE LAKE — Camanche and Maquoketa closed their regular seasons in high school volleyball by winning a pair of matches each Thursday at the Northeast Quadrangular.

Both squads beat Northeast and Monticello.

“Two games tonight is just what we needed,” said Camanche coach Josh Davis, whose team opens Class 3A regional play Monday at Tipton.

Camanche lost its first game of the night, then won four in a row to record a 16-25, 25-14, 15-8 win against Monticello and a 25-14, 25-14 sweep against Northeast.

“We got off to a slow start,” Davis said. “I think sometimes these girls play so many sports they don’t know where they are. They got better, and I would like to play all night the way they were playing at the end.”

Brettan Hilgendorf had eight kills in each match to lead the Indians (17-11), while fellow senior Libby Schnoor had seven kills against Monticello and eight against Northeast. Hilgendorf also was the leader with 30 digs, including 19 against the Rebels.

“It was the best game I have seen her play,” Davis said of Hilgendorf. “You always know you’ll get a good game out of Libby.”

Kylie Vogel led Camanche with 35 assists.

“We started out not passing well at all, then Lindsey Grams stepped up,” Davis said. “If we get balls in the area to Kylie, she’ll set them up.”

Kelsie French and Julia Moore each had three ace serves.

“I can’t say enough about Kelsie French,” Davis said. “It seemed like when we needed points she stepped up to serve and got them out of system. Julia, too, was serving well.”

Maquoketa improved to 14-21 with a 25-16, 25-15 win against Northeast, followed by a 25-15, 25-18 win against Monticello. The Cardinals also open regional play Monday, facing WaMaC Conference rival Central DeWitt in a Class 4A match in DeWitt.

Addie Oberman had six kills in each match for Northeast (10-17), which entertains Monticello on Monday in regional play. Baylie Parson recorded 20 digs to lead the defense, while Breanne Butler had four blocks.

  • 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.
