Metro Sports Report

Hunter Sturtz wins Metro Spotlight Award

Cedar Rapids Jefferson junior Hunter Sturtz is the winner of the Metro Spotlight Award for high school boys this week, the Metro Sports Report announced Sunday.

Sturtz has blossomed into one of the top bowlers in the state this season. He has dramatically improved his averages this year and leads the Metro area with a 242.8 game average and 485.5 series average so far. He ranks fourth in the state in both categories.

Sturtz had a 200.5 game average and 400.0 series average last year as a sophomore, so he has shown marked improvement this season in the early going. Jefferson has gotten off to a 2-0 start with victories over Washington and Iowa City High.

Jefferson girls put clamps on Prairie

Jefferson Coach Jason Edwards speaks so softly that it’s barely above a whisper.

But his J-Hawk girls certainly paid attention to what he had to tell them at halftime Tuesday night as they turned a two-point lead into a 24-point blowout over Prairie in the Jeff gym.

“Coach always tells us to aim for three things,” said junior sparkplug guard Sam Kitterman following the 51-27 runaway win. “Defend, rebound and run.”

Sophomore backcourt running mate Avery Guy repeated the mantra. “He says if we do those three things right, we’ll win games,” she said.

After a sometimes sloppy first half, Jefferson’s girls followed instructions from then on with near perfection. They held Prairie to just five points in the third quarter and kept them from scoring any points at all in the fourth quarter.

Let's hope Paige stays in school

Doug McDermott set a terrific example for college basketball players last season when he postponed his entry into the NBA draft and returned to Creighton for his senior year with the Bluejays.

Let's hope Marcus Paige does the same thing and returns to North Carolina next season for his senior year with the Tar Heels.

McDermott was a first team All-American at Creighton as a junior and undoubtedly would have been a first-round NBA draft pick that year, but he decided to stay in school and wait another year before raking in millions of dollars in the pros with the Chicago Bulls.

McDermott's situation was a little different because he was playing for his father, Greg, at Creighton and had his family to consider, but he made the right choice and stayed in school.

Paige should as well.

This Uthoff is a wrestler for Prairie

If your last name is Uthoff, you can either play basketball during the winter or you can wrestle.

Sam Uthoff is a wrestler for Cedar Rapids Prairie. And he's a darn good one.

"The story that my dad always told me is, if you're tall and a Uthoff you go to Jefferson to play basketball," he said Saturday, "and the Uthoffs that go to Prairie are wrestlers.

"It makes the name sound good when they're both pretty good."

Uthoff upheld the family name Saturday by capturing the 126-pound title at the Independence Invitational with three pins and a decision.
