No.1 Saints boot City High in opener

Kayla Armstrong is playing soccer at Drake University these days, so the Xavier Saints will have to win their ninth state title in a row without their former superstar.

They welcome the challenge.

Lizzy Bailey, Marisa Berutti and Katie Ives scored two goals apiece Thursday as the Class 2A top-ranked Saints blanked Iowa City High, 6-0, in the season opener at Heco Field.

Armstrong poured in 48 goals in 20 games for Xavier last season when the Saints cruised to another state title, but the scoring mantle has been passed to Bailey, Berutti and Ives this year.

The times have changed for Coach Bailey Winter, assistant coach Rocki Shepard and the entire team, and the 6-0 victory with balanced scoring was a good start.

Jacobson sets NCAA record for homers

Cedar Rapids Jefferson graduate Alex Jacobson has written her name into the NCAA record book.

Jacobson, a senior third baseman at Rockhurst University in Kansas City, Mo., broke the NCAA softball record for all divisions when she hit home runs in eight consecutive games from March 22 to March 29.

"I didn't think much about the streak until the sixth game," she said in a story posted on her school's website.


Kernels win series at Great Lakes, 11-2

MIDLAND, Mich. —  The Cedar Rapids Kernels exploded for a season-high 11 runs and 11 hits on their way to an 11-2 victory over the Great Lakes Loons on Thursday afternoon before 1,085 fans in a Midwest League game at Dow Diamond.

The win gave the Kernels (4-3) their first series victory of the season as they took two of three games.

Righthander Ryan Eades (1-0) went seven innings and allowed one unearned run on six hits. He struck out five and walked none.

The lone run the Loons tallied off Eades came in the fifth inning when Joey Curletta doubled and later scored on a fielding error. Eades was solid during all seven innings, escaping danger in the seventh by fielding a comebacker with two runners in scoring position to end the inning and his outing.
