Camanche falls 7-2 to Davenport Assumption

CAMANCHE — Tanner Atkinson was a double winner for Camanche, but Davenport Assumption won the other seven matches Friday for a 7-2 victory in high school boys tennis rescheduled from Tuesday.

Atkinson beat Sean Baldwin 10-7 at No. 2 singles and teamed with Seth Boysen for a 10-4 victory at No. 1 doubles.

The Indians (2-2) play for the third consecutive day today at the Clinton Invitational.

Close ones cost CHS

CLINTON — Davenport Central won three close singles matches to make the difference in a 5-4 win against Clinton on Senior NIght on Thursday at the Ashford Tennis Center.

The Blue Devils won the matches at Nos. 3, 4 and 5 singles by a total of seven game to spoil the meet that was moved indoors because of the weather.

“Senior night is always emotional and makes everyone reflect on themselves and the team,” Clinton coach Jonathan Mitchell said. “I hope when this group of seniors reflects on their career, they remember the integrity that they showed on the courts. It is very tough for young men to lose 4-5 in a meet like we had tonight, when both teams’ emotions are high, but our character and integrity never waived.”

Evan Hood and Colin Nelson led the River Kings, winning in both singles and doubles.

“Colin Nelson stole the show tonight,” Mitchell said. “In doubles, Sameer (Ansari) and Colin were down the entire match, but they stayed mentally focused and won the last three games, winning 10-8. In singles, Colin played like a man on a mission coming from behind to win 11-10, 7-3 in the tiebreaker.”

The River Kings host the Clinton Invitational today, starting at 9 a.m. at Max Lynn Courts.

  • 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.
