Grimm makes strong bid with Eagles

Kirkwood Coach Todd Rima has looked at seven different outfielders this season, trying to find the right combination of offense, defense and overall talent.

Based on what happened during Tuesday's doubleheader against Marshalltown, freshman Bryce Grimm of Xavier High School could be moving toward the front of the pack.

Grimm played a key role as the Eagles defeated Marshalltown, 16-7, in the second game of their non-conference doubleheader on a gorgeous 70-degree afternoon at the Kirkwood Field.

Kirkwood also won the first game, 10-0, in five innings.

Jenks ran the fastest times in the state this year in both events. She also ranks No. 1 in the state in the 3000.

Iowa City West nipped Linn-Mar for the team championship, 146 to 145. Prairie placed third, Kennedy fifth and Xavier seventh.

Linn-Mar freshman Payton Wensel continued to shine this season for the Lions. She captured the 200 meter dash in 26.14 seconds, anchored
