River Kings go deep


“Octavio was persistent with his efforts to turn his opponent, getting his third pin in the last four matches,” coach Schoon said. “Blake has the ability to ignite the crowd with his ‘feet to back to pin’ offense.”

Schoon, who moved up from assistant to head coach this season, said the senior class would be missed.

“I’m proud of this group of seniors, their leadership and work ethic,” he said. “I wish they all could have won but know they all went out and competed with pride. They have represented Northeast well and are working hard to reach goals they have set for the season.”

  • 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.
