Camanche tops Clinton in non-conference girls basketball

CAMANCHE — After a slow start, Camanche revved up its offense in the second half and defeated Clinton 48-30 in a non-conference girls basketball game Saturday.

Limited to one 3-point basket in the first half, Kylie Vogel exploded in the second half. She made three more 3-pointers and went 8-for-10 from the free-throw line to finish with 20 points.

The Indians trailed 13-12 at the half but opened the second half with back-to-back 3-pointers to take the lead that they never lost.

“Both teams came out focused on defense,” Clinton coach Mike Halac said. “Only allowing 12 points was because of a very focused defensive effort. We started off the second half with a basket to go up 15-12, but from there we really struggled offensively.”

Erin Wenzel led Clinton with 12 points and 17 rebounds, nine offensive.

Irish girls win

ALBURNETT — Andrea Aquilani popped in five 3-pointers and Karlie Atkinson scored eight of her 10 points in the first half to help Prince of Peace get off to a strong start in a 51-39 win against Alburnett in a Tri-Rivers Conference game Saturday.

Aquilani hit a pair of treys in the second quarter, when Prince of Peace expanded a 13-0 lead to 29-15.

  • 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.
