Rebels fall in 7th to Clinton


To keep arms fresh, Howe used five pitchers for two innings or less. He said the Rebels had a tough conference schedule ahead this week and was focused on those battles.

Northeast plays Big East rivals Midland (tonight) and Bellevue (Thursday), both home doubleheaders.

“I’m looking forward to seeing the guys taking care of business,” Howe said. “We have some opportunities this week. If we take care of our business it doesn’t matter what the other team does.”

The same can be said for Clinton, which plays tonight at Bettendorf, then hosts Davenport Assumption in Thursday night MAC play.

“They’re good teams, but I’m hoping we’ll compete and get back in this race for the MAC,” Cunningham said.

Maquoketa impresses at Cal-Wheat invite

CALAMUS — Behind two wins, Maquoketa continued its success during Saturday’s four-team tournament between Maquoketa, Bellevue, North Cedar and host Calamus-Wheatland.

Alex Becker threw seven solid innings in his win over the Warriors. The senior allowed only three hits with eight strikeouts in the 4-1 victory. Justin Alden scored Cal-Wheat’s lone run in the seventh inning behind a double from Austin Houzenga.

Against Bellevue, Maquoketa tallied nine hits in a 5-0 shutout win. Trent Bollman scored twice, going 3-for-3 at the plate with three stolen bases. Tyler Regan batted in three runs with a double to help the Cardinals improve to 8-4. They turn their attention to Dyersville Beckman tonight in a home doubleheader.

Cal-Wheat bounced back with a shutout win of its own against North Cedar, winning 2-0. Austin and Nick Houzenga drove in runs for the Warriors, who travel to Marquette Catholic for tonight’s doubleheader.

Sabers strong at tourney

DENVER — Central DeWitt racked up 23 runs between two games Saturday, taking down tournament host Denver 16-10 and then shutting out North Fayette 7-0.

  • Interest in Ernst rises as his game does, too

    Brady Ernst is having a summer to remember.
    The rising River King senior is spending the summer playing for the Iowa Barnstormers traveling basketball team. This weekend they're playing in the Fab48 tournament in Las Vegas.
    "I'm playing with a great group of guys," Ernst said in a telephone interview. "We lost our last game (Thursday) night, but it's all about getting better."
    River Kings coach Nick Lawrence said Ernst had worked on a few new aspects to his game.
    "What he has worked on and what we would like to see him do is step outside and shoot a little bit more," Lawrence said. "I've watched him play a little bit this summer, and he's made five or six that I've seen."

  • 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.
