September 26th

West reclaims The Spike

IOWA CITY— The Iowa City West High Women of Troy and the City High Little Hawks have battled annually since 1982 for a golden railroad spike on a marble base. Called “The Spike,” the trophy is the Iowa City prep volleyball equivalent to the rival football teams’ “Boot.”
Last year, after three years of residence at West, the Little Hawks prevailed 3-2 to take The Spike away.
This year, the Women of Troy traveled to City High on a mission to bring home the trophy. With a 3-1 victory, The Spike came home and West’s record improved to 19-5-0 for the season thus far.
Individual stats:

CCA Clippers volleyball still on a roll

TIFFIN— The Clear Creek Amana (CCA) Clippers volleyball team brought a 15th- place ranking, believed to be the team’s first such appearance, home last Tuesday night for a showdown with the Vikettes from Vinton-Shellsburg. After four hard-fought games, the Clippers vanquished the Vikettes 3-1.
Brian Bronzynski’s crew has won five of their last seven matches, putting up wins over Williamsburg (WaMaC), Hudson, Alburnett, Monticello (Lisbon tournament), as well as the Vikettes. The wins brought the Clippers to a 15-7-0 record.

J-Hawks get the blues

CEDAR RAPIDS— It was pretty much over at halftime.
To say Iowa City West dominated Cedar Rapids Jefferson Friday night at Kingston Stadium would be an understatement. The Trojans rolled the J-Hawks from the start, scoring on the first possession of the game with a 1-yard run by quarterback Charles Rogers. A Rogers to Dondre Alexander pass followed by a successful two-point play by Anthony Brown gave West a 15-0 lead halfway through the first quarter.

CCA has changing of the guard

OXFORD— The Board of Directors of the Clear Creek Amana school district underwent a major change as four out-going members were replaced with four incoming. Tim Hennes, Betsy Momany, Kathi Huebner and Kevin Kinney all declined to run for re-election in the Sept. 13, school board election, opening the door for Terry Davis, Rick Hergert, Steve Swenka and Bob Broghammer.
“I wouldn’t give it up for anything,” Hennes, the out-going board president, said of his eight years on the board.

Walk as if life depends on it

NORTH LIBERTY– When Bill Nash went to the doctor to have his arm checked out, the last thing he expected was to begin a life-changing battle with cancer. But when doctors told him he had lymphoma, they quickly removed a lymph node tumor in his armpit, and started him on a series of chemotherapy and radiation treatments.
“Your head spins. You’re getting poked and prodded. You’re at the mercy of the doctors,” Bill said. He said it happened so fast, there wasn’t time to think about what to do or how to pay for it.

Our Lord’s Fall Festival

SOLON– It’s a one-stop shop that supports the community.

A major fundraiser for the service-oriented congregation, the Fall Festival centers around a soup luncheon and bake sale, with craft items, a raffle for a hand-stitched quilt and a pie-baking contest thrown in for good measure.
The church, established in 2004, uses funds to support its many community service projects, according to co-chair Marge Knepp.
