High school cross country: Off and running


The top 10 of the freshman/sophomore race was loaded with area runners. Andrew Kilburg, a freshman at Easton Valley, placed eighth (15:57.37), while Northeast’s Colton Galusha (15:59.78) and Connor McDonald (16:10.65) took ninth and 10th.

The Assumption girls showed why they are ranked third in the preseason Class 3A state rankings, as they captured the top five spots, and 10th place, in the girls varsity race.

Kaster broke into a group of three girls from Dubuque Senior, ranked 15th in Class 4A. She took seventh in 16:35.46.

“I just wanted to run faster than last year,” said Kaster, who accomplished that by about a minute and a half. “I think it sets me up quite nicely. I’m excited now.”

Kokjohn exceeded her goal, too, taking 11th in 16:48.21.

“I was trying to get under 17 minutes; that was my goal,” she said. “I thought it was a good time. I got a good start, and I kept up with them good.”


No team scores were kept. Because several runners were not identified, only area runners’ finishes are listed.

  • 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.
