Kamin takes CRANDIC golf with 77

MJ Kamin is naturally excited about joining the women's golf team at Iowa State next year, but she's not ready to be tugged toward Ames just yet.

Kamin wants to enjoy her final season at Cedar Rapids Washington and take a shot at winning the Class 5A state title in June.

She's off to a good start.

Kamin fired a 5-over-par 77 on a gray, blustery day at Twin Pines Wednesday to win the CRANDIC championship by two strokes over Maddie Bertsch of Xavier.



Skidding Kernels fall under .500

PEORIA, Ill. - The Peoria Chiefs did not collect their first hit until the seventh inning Wednesday, but they found a way to blank the Cedar Rapids Kernels, 2-0, before 4,758 fans at Dozer Park.

The Chiefs (11-7) scored single runs in the seventh and eighth innings for the victory, despite getting only three hits in the game.

The Kernels saw their record dip under the .500 mark at 9-10. The Kernels began the season with an 8-3 record, but have lost seven of their last eight games.



Furnish shines at MVC golf meet

SPRINGFIELD, Ill. - Cedar Rapids Jefferson graduate Megan Furnish placed sixth for Missouri State University at the Missouri Valley Conference women's golf tournament Tuesday at the Panther Creek Country Club in Springfield, Ill.

Furnish fired rounds of 76, 73 and 73 to finish at 6-over 222 for the 54-hole tournament. She had the lowest score for her team.

Danielle Lemek of Bradley won the event at 4-under 212.

Furnish, a sophomore at Missouri State, was named the school's Student-Athlete of the Week for her performance. She set new career-bests for a single round (73), 54-hole tournament (222) and overall finish (sixth).


Coe softball team splits with Central

PELLA - The Coe softball team split an Iowa Conference doubleheader with Central College in Pella Tuesday to retain a one-game league in the league standings.

Coe won the first game, 5-3.

Central took the nightcap, 2-1, on a walk-off home run by Katie Canney in the bottom of the seventh inning.

The split left the ninth-ranked Kohawks with a 9-3 record in the Iowa Conference. Central, Luther, Dubuque and Simpson are all tied for second place at 8-4.


Rams snap 16-game slide against Coe

Seth Wing grew up in Maquoketa, so he jumped at the opportunity to come "home" and become the new baseball coach at Cornell College three years ago even though the Rams had nearly hit rock-bottom as a program.

Wing obviously knew what he was doing.

Cornell took another big step in the right direction Tuesday with a 10-8 victory over Coe at Veterans Memorial Stadium, snapping a 16-game losing streak against the Kohawks.

"It's a big win for our program," said Wing. "It kind of shows that we are turning the corner and can finally compete with them. It's been a long time."

The Rams had not beaten the Kohawks since 2008.
