Clipper boys out in district semifinal loss to Marion

SOLON– The Clear Creek Amana (CCA) Clippers, under coach Andrew Davis, saw their tumultuous season come to a tough end Friday, July 13, in a Class 3A district semifinal game against the Marion Indians at Solon. The Indians scored in the bottom of the first inning, and then held the Clippers scoreless until Tanner Bandy scored in the top of the fourth.
Marion answered in-kind with their second run in the bottom of the fourth before the game stalemated for the remaining two-and-a-half innings.

West High Trojans shut-out Warriors in substate semifinal

IOWA CITY– The Cedar Rapids Washington Warriors proved to be no match for Charlie Stumpff’s West High Trojans Friday night as West shut-out the Warriors 6-0 in a Class 4A substate semifinal game at home.
The Trojans put up one run in the top of the first inning and five in the third while holding the Warriors scoreless. Reid Bonner and Tyus Adkins had a double each as well as a pair of RBIs. Devin Raffensperger was also credited with an RBI. Bonner, Adkins and Nick Grimsman also had singles in the offensive effort.

Trojans bite Bulldogs

IOWA CITY– While the Women of Troy were battling to go to the state softball tournament Tuesday night, Charlie Stumpff’s Trojans were taking care of business in the next-to-last regular season game against the Bettendorf Bulldogs.
West had a 3-0 lead after four innings with one run in the bottom of the first and two in the third. The Bulldogs put up a run in the top of the fifth, but the Trojans added two more in the bottom of the inning. Bettendorf had three un-answered runs in the sixth but they weren’t enough and the Trojans took the 5-4 win.

There they go again:

OXFORD– Hopefully Jim White isn’t superstitious. When his Clear Creek Amana (CCA) Clippers take the field on Tuesday, July 18, at the Class 4A state softball tournament, it will be Coach White’s 13th time at the helm for the big dance. For CCA, it will be the 33rd state tourney appearance and its fourth consecutive. CCA is technically the defending Class 3A champion, but with realignment to five classes this season by the Iowa Girls High School Athletic Union, the Clippers find themselves in 4A where they are ranked No. 1 in the state.

A new history for Women of Troy

IOWA CITY– What a year for Iowa City West High. State volleyball championship? Check. Girls’ state basketball championship? Check. Boys’ state basketball championship? Check. State softball championship? Stay tuned.
West High’s Women of Troy will get back to you on that as they make their first softball tournament appearance following a 6-0 shut-out of visiting Cedar Rapids Prairie Tuesday night.

Sandwiched in downtown Ely

ELY– For Gary Scott, operating a bistro of his own has been one small step after another. From helping customers behind the counter to running the kitchen, creating his restaurant’s menu and building a following, he has the years of experience and kitchen hands of a professional.
Scott worked in pizza restaurants for years, managing, delivering, baking pies and cleaning up, but always for somebody else.
So after getting out of food service for a brief period when he worked in a Cedar Rapids foundry, he went back to school to learn the hospitality business at Kirkwood Community College.
