Olson, Good share Metro Spotlight Award

Cedar Rapids Jefferson pitchers Alyssa Olson and Alissa Good are the co-winners of the Metro Spotlight Award for high school girls this week, the Metro Sports Report announced Sunday night.

Olson and Good, both seniors, tossed shutouts when the J-Hawks swept Kennedy Tuesday night when the Cougars were ranked No. 7 in the state in Class 5A. Olson pitched a four-hit shutout in a 2-0 victory and Good was credited with a five-hitter in a 9-0 victory in the nightcap.

Olson, a power pitcher, has an 11-4 record and 1.05 ERA with 120 strikeouts in 106 2/3 innings. Good, more of a finesse pitcher, has a 12-1 record and 1.70 ERA with 23 strikeouts in 78 2/3 innings.

Daniels wins Metro Spotlight Award

Zach Daniels of Kennedy is the winner of the Metro Spotlight Award for high school boys this week, the Metro Sports Report announced Sunday night.

Daniels, a senior, is one of the top baseball players in the state as a pitcher, hitter and shortstop. He was an elite all-state selection last year and appears headed for the same award this season.

Daniels has a 4-0 record and 1.81 ERA on the mound, with 39 strikeouts and 11 walks in 31 innings. He has allowed only 17 hits and opponents are batting just .155 against him.

No. 9 Lions sweep No. 2 J-Hawks

There's something about playing the best baseball teams in the state that brings out the best in the Linn-Mar Lions.

The Lions made a statement earlier in the season by sweeping a Mississippi Valley Conference doubleheader from Kennedy when the Cougars were ranked No. 1 in the state in Class 4A.

The giant-killers from Linn-Mar struck again Monday night when they swept an MVC twinbill from No. 2 Jefferson, 3-1 and 3-1, at the Oak Ridge Middle School complex in Marion.

The victories lifted the Lions into serious contention for the Valley Division title and improved their chances of claiming a precious No. 1 seed for the substate tournament in a few weeks.
