CCA girls 22nd at State Co-Ed

DES MOINES– Clear Creek Amana’s (CCA) girls’ track and field team put up 10 team points over the past weekend in the Class 3A State Co-Ed Track and Field Meet in Des Moines at Drake University.
The Clippers were ranked 22nd in team points. Dubuque Wahlert won the team title with 90 points. Solon was third with 59, Mount Vernon-Lisbon finished 18th with a dozen and Williamsburg was 14th with 17 team points.

Lions’ lament

CORALVILLE— Iowa City West coach Brad Stiles found himself wondering at times if the Linn Mar goalkeeper had magnets or something else in his gloves. The keeper managed to grab almost every Trojan ball that made it into his box.
“We just couldn’t find the back of the net” Stiles said.
Fortunately, senior Alex Troester did. Twice. Troester’s goals (one in the first half, the other in the second) gave the Trojans a 2-0 win and set them up for a Saturday, May 26, Class 4A final round match at home against Cedar Rapids Kennedy.

Women of Troy eighth at state co-ed meet

DES MOINES– The West High Women of Troy amassed 37 points over the weekend to place eighth as a team in the 4A State Co-Ed Track and Field Meet held at Drake University in Des Moines.
McKennan Cronbaugh leapt 18 feet, 3 inches to win the Class 4A girls’ long jump contest.
Results provided by the Iowa Girls High School Athletic Union. Finals only.
Discus: 19, Jenny Hanson, 108 feet, 9 inches. 21, Abby Brayton, 106 feet, 4 inches.
3000 meter run: 6, Ashlynn Yokom, 10:37.55. 18, Sofia Mendoza, 11:21.93.

Balancing act

By Lori Lindner
North Liberty Leader
CORALVILLE– Jared Kiebel really wanted the Escalade, but he couldn’t make his budget stretch far enough.
“It costs a lot of money,” Kiebel said. “Eight hundred and sixteen dollars a month. And that’s without the gas.”
Kiebel’s observation might seem common sense for someone who has worked for a living, paid monthly bills and made car payments.
For a middle school student, though, it’s more like a revelation, the discovery that one’s spending ability really does depend on income.

Solon picks girls' hoops coach

The Solon Community School District has hired Tony Nicol as middle school counselor and head varsity girl’s basketball coach (pending school board approval).

May 21st

Food For Thought

Recent reminiscences brought back vivid memories of some of the revelations that I encountered in junior high school. I think those years (in our day, sixth, seventh and eighth grades) were more enlightening and certainly more exciting than any other period until college. It was in junior high that we learned about Shakespeare.
