Indians sweep CHS meet

CLINTON — Cody Mensinger left two pins standing on his final roll, and his 298 highlighted a successful day for the Camanche High School bowling teams Saturday at the Clinton Kings and Queens Invitational at Plaza Bowl.

The Indians won both the boys and girls varsity and junior varsity titles in Class 1A in the annual tournament.

He finished with a two-game total of 501, 12 pins behind the 513 day’s-best varsity effort by Zach Swisher of West Central (Ill.).

  • 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.
