Metro Sports Report

Olson nets 31 as J-Hawks top Wash

There have been some outstanding point guards in the Metro area in recent years with Marcus Paige, Wes Washpun and Taylor Olson.

Jacob Olson is making a strong push this season to make it a foursome.

Olson poured in a career-high 31 points Friday night to steer Jefferson past Washington, 57-36, in a Mississippi Valley Conference game in the Washington gym.


Prairie boys hustle past Lions

It’s as true in sports as it is in combat, that when the going gets tough the tough get going.

The Linn-Mar and Prairie boys were locked in a knock-down-drag-out battle for three quarters Friday night on the Hawks home court.

And with the win on the line, Prairie turned up the heat and the Lions melted.

“It’s very disappointing,” said Linn-Mar Coach Chris Robertson after the 46-33 defeat.  “They were clearly the tougher team. They were much more aggressive.



Prairie bounces past Linn-Mar girls

Madison Dellamuth scored 21 points and the Prairie girls rolled over Linn-Mar, 53-34, Friday night in a Mississippi Valley Conference basketball game at Linn-Mar.

Prairie (7-3, 5-2) was looking to bounce back from a 46-23 loss at Dubuque Hempstead last Friday night that dropped the Hawks out of the Class 5A rankings.

“We’ve got to play better defense, play with more urgency on defense, and we have to forget about the poor performance at Hempstead,” Prairie Coach Steve Doser said before the game.

Mission accomplished.



Prairie, Linn-Mar rank 2-3 in wrestling

Cedar Rapids Prairie is ranked No.2 and Linn-Mar is No.3 in the initial Iowa Wrestling Coaches Association Class 3A dual team rankings for the 2012-13 season.

Southeast Polk is ranked No.1 in Class 3A.

West Delaware is ranked No.1 in Class 2A, thanks in large part to its 4-0 record against Prairie and Linn-Mar in dual meet tournaments this season.

Prairie has a 13-2 record, with both of its losses to West Delaware. Linn-Mar has a 9-6 record, with two losses to West Delaware and two losses to Prairie.


It's a snap! Scott headed to Kansas State

Drew Scott has an unusual ability.

He can bend his knees, squat down, grab a football, look between his legs and snap the ball to a teammate who's stationed behind him, knowing a defensive lineman is getting ready to bowl him over the instant he lets go.

Scott did it time after time after time for the Xavier Saints this past season on their path to the championship game of the Class 4A playoffs.

He did it on PATs, he did it on field goals, he did it on punts.

Scott did it so well that the fifth-ranked Kansas State Wildcats have invited him to join their football team next season as a snapper for their special teams as well.
