Metro Sports Report

Jenks, Evans lead Metro parade to Drake

Linn-Mar distance stars Stephanie Jenks and Josh Evans are poised to leave their mark on the Drake Relays again next week.

Jenks, a sophomore, is seeded first in the 1500 meter run, first in the 3000 meter run and second in the 800. She won the 1500 and 3000 at Drake last year as a freshman.

Evans, a senior, is seeded first in the 3200, third in the 1600 and 10th in the 800. He and his teammates are seeded No.1 in the 4x800 relay and the sprint medley, with Evans the anchor on both relays when they ran their best times.

Evans set a meet record at the Drake Relays last year when he captured the 1600 in 4 minutes, 10.86 seconds. He also finished second in the 3200.


Merced stars as KCC sweeps twinbill

CRESTON - Angel Merced went 7-for-11 and drove in six runs Friday as the Kirkwood Eagles swept an ICCAC doubleheader from Southwestern, 12-2 and 17-15, in Creston.

Merced was 4-for-5 with two RBIs in the first game. He continued his hot hitting by going 3-for-6 with four more RBIs in the nightcap.

Kirkwood (22-11, 7-7) pounded out 15 hits in both games.

Zach Patterson, Eric Schenck-Joblinske, Nick Jones and Randy Perez had two hits in the first game. Schenck-Joblinske collected a double, triple and two RBIs. Cale Henke struck out 11 batters in seven innings for the victory.

Patterson, Sulliam Rios Reyes and Schenck-Joblinske - the top three batters in the lineup - combined to score 10 runs in the second game.

Perez went 3-for-5 with two RBIs. Shawn Hagarty was 3-for-4 and scored three times. Patterson had two more hits.



Snakebit Kohawks drop pair at Central

PELLA - The baseball gods have been unkind to the Coe Kohawks this season.

The Kohawks have lost eight one-run games this year after dropping a pair of Iowa Conference squeakers at Central College Friday, 2-1 and 5-4.

Coe committed three errors in the opener and both of Central's runs in the ballgame were unearned. Connor Alberhasky (2-4) was the hard-luck loser, allowing six hits in six innings.

AJ Reuter went 2-for-3 for the Kohawks in the first game.

Jack Hoffmann's three-run double helped Coe take a 4-3 leading into the bottom of the eighth inning in the second game, but Central scored two runs in the frame and held on for the victory. Michael Goerdt went 2-for-4 for the Kohawks.

Coe's records fell to 11-17 overall and 7-13 in the league. Central raised its marks to 18-11 and 10-8.






Lions top Cougars in bizarre match

In a soccer match that almost ended midway in the second half when the lead official walked off the field, a stout defense by the fourth-ranked Linn-Mar girls prevailed in a 3-2 win Thursday night at Cedar Rapids Kennedy.

The second-ranked Cougars could have sent it into overtime, but a dead-onfree penalty kick by Emily Feltes with 1:27 to go was smacked straight into the clutches of Lions goalkeeper Rylee Frese.

“We had our chances,” said Kennedy assistant coach Scott Myers. “We had the ball inside the box right at the end, and you can't ask for anything better than that.”

Kennedy head coach Andrew McKnight announced previously that his last game would be next week against Washington because he is joining the Iowa City Police Department. But Myers took the reins sooner than expected when McKnight was hit with two yellow cards for disputing calls and automatically ejected with 23:36 left in the match.

Immediately thereafter, the referee who made the calls walked off the field into the parking lot. Order was restored 15 minutes later when Kennedy athletic director Aaron Stecker coaxed him back into the game.

“We all wanted the game to finish,” said Linn-Mar Coach Steve Dickinson. “This was a game for the girls.”


No.2 Cougars nip No.4 Lions, 3-2

Mark Schulz scored two goals Thursday night as the second-ranked Cedar Rapids Kennedy Cougars trimmed No.4 Linn-Mar, 3-2, in a premier Mississippi Valley Conference boys soccer match at Linn-Mar.

Nikolas Newcamp also scored for Kennedy (2-1). Killian Magee, Jacob Sarasin, JJ Reinhart, Schulz and Reid Botkin collected assists for the Cougars.

Linn-Mar (6-1) took the lead in the 5th minute and again in the 13th minute, but Kennedy rallied each time.

Daniel Luzindya scored both of the goals for Linn-Mar.

The game was tied at halftime, 2-2.
