  • LumberKings get first win in a week

    Bring out the rally...opossum?

    After a delay that involved the opossum making itself at home at Modern Woodmen Park, the LumberKings (14-24, 44-62) found a new rally animal to drive its first win in a week. It took a ninth inning foul out sacrifice fly by left fielder Chantz Mack to defeat the hometown Quad Cities River Bandits 6-5.

    The win snapped a six game losing streak for Clinton and a four game winning streak for Quad Cities.

  • 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.
