Rebels, Indians each score 39

CASCADE — Northeast’s Tyler Schoon opened the dual with a key victory, but Camanche took advantage of a string of late forfeits to earn a 39-39 tie with the Rebels on Tuesday in a River Valley Conference wrestling triangular.

Schoon, Northeast’s lone returning state qualifier, edged Camanche’s Brice Everson 3-2 at 132 pounds. Everson, ranked seventh in the state at 120 pounds, bumped up two weights for the dual.

Octavio Cruz (138 pounds) and Ryan Livesay (145) followed with pins — the only falls of the meet — to give the Rebels a 15-0 lead.

Forfeits were the story the rest of the match — with one key exception for the Indians. At 182 pounds, Camanche’s Damian Sweely beat Eric Eggers 6-4 in overtime.

Northeast earned forfeits in the next three matches to go up 39-15, but Camanche picked up forfeits in the final four weights to pull even.

Cascade, which hosted the meet, defeated both teams in its duals. The Cougars beat Camanche 42-21 in the first dual of the night, then closed the evening with a 46-29 win against Northeast.

“Our team showed improvement tonight in several areas that we worked on in practice,” Northeast coach Ken Schoon said. “Octavio Cruz had a fine night as he worked aggressively to get pins in both matches. Ryan Livesay also did well, as he got a pin his first match and worked real hard not to get pinned, thus saving team points in his loss.”

Alleman tops Fulton

FULTON, Ill. — Each team won five contested matches, but Rock Island Alleman took advantage of four pins to beat Fulton 39-28 in a high school wrestling meet postponed from last Tuesday.

Adam Hodge (138 pounds) and Zach Jenkins (195) recorded falls for Fulton, while Mike Pidde (160) earned a major decision and Jake Hoffman (126) and Steven Balk (285) also won their matches.

  • 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.
