Hawkeye wrestlers edge out Minnesota

Hawk Wrestling
The Hawkeyes won five matches, Minnesota won five but Iowa took the meet with a 41-33 advantage in match points Saturday in Minnesota.
The big three– Matt McDonough, Tony Ramos and Derek St. John– led the way with decisions.
It would have been nice for Tony to get one more takedown at 133 to get a major. He won 8-2 but couldn’t get a takedown at the end.
Mark Ballweg had a solid 3-1 win at 141 but it was Nick Moore’s 8-2 decision at 165 that helped put Iowa in front.

IC West confounds CR Kennedy, 77-44

By Chris Umscheid
North Liberty Leader
IOWA CITY– The West High Trojans continued their march to Des Moines, with hopes of defending their Class 4A State Championship, by dismantling the Cedar Rapids Kennedy Cougars 77-44 Tuesday night at home.
The Cougars led briefly, very briefly, at the start of the game by taking a 2-0 lead. After that, it was all West, all the time.
Myzeah Batie-Gaddy scored to tie on his way to an 18-point night. Wyatt Lohaus dropped-in a layup just ahead of the period-ending buzzer, giving the Trojans a 21-7 advantage.

Trojans continue domination on the mat

Iowa City West whips Cedar Rapids Kennedy, Waterloo West

CEDAR RAPIDS– A late December snowstorm only postponed the inevitable for the Cedar Rapids Kennedy and Waterloo West wrestlers. A double-dual meet originally scheduled for Dec. 20 was rescheduled to Thursday night, and for Iowa City West it was worth the wait. Mark Reiland’s Trojans reigned supreme defeating the Kennedy Cougars 60-22 and the Waterloo West Wahawks 68-8.

Chris Street remembered

I doesn’t seem like it was 20 years ago last Saturday that Chris Street died in an auto accident.
The Hawkeyes honored Chris by beating Wisconsin, the only undefeated team left in the Big Ten, 70-66, before a jam-packed, very loud and excited crowd.
I remember that night of the accident 20 years ago as I was sitting at home watching TV around 7:30 p.m.
I got a call from Deanna Slade, who was a neighbor of mine.
Deanna asked me, “Is there a football player named Chris Street?”
I said, “No, he plays basketball.”

Spartans rally against Regina

SOLON– It’s not easy being consistent.
After battling a tough Anamosa team tooth and toenail, Solon’s varsity basketball squad fell prey to the Cardinals of Maquoketa last week, collecting a third loss on the season before surging back against Iowa City Regina the next night.
The Spartans moved to 10-3 overall last week, solidifying their position behind Western Dubuque on the top of the WaMaC East heap.
Solon used a 23-point fourth quarter to push past Anamosa at home last Tuesday, taking a 56-48 victory from a hungry Raider team.
