Metro Sports Report

Rima casts eye on Prairie baseball job

Kirkwood Community College baseball coach Todd Rima confirmed Monday that he's interested in becoming the new head baseball coach at Cedar Rapids Prairie.

If hired by Prairie, Rima would continue to serve as the head coach at Kirkwood and hold both jobs.

"I would consider it. Yes," Rima remarked when asked if he's interested in the post at Prairie.

Matt Thede resigned as Prairie's baseball coach after the 2014 season to become the athletic director and assistant principal at Mount Vernon High School.

Rocky Bennett, the athletic director at Prairie, confirmed he has spoken to Rima informally about the job, but quickly added that he's spoken to several other potential candidates as well. Bennett said he'd move forward on the selection process in September.

Joe Yegge, the softball coach at Kirkwood, is also the head softball coach at Prairie, so there is precedent for someone doing both jobs. Rima said he has talked to Yegge about the demands of holding both assignments.

No. 21 Kohawks spike Iowa Wesleyan

The Kohawks did it again Tuesday night.

The Coe College volleyball team is now 5-0 after sweeping Iowa Wesleyan, 25-10, 25-11, 25-20, at Eby Fieldhouse.

Coe senior Rachel Schaefer and junior Mackenzie Harbaugh, who have both been playing volleyball for more than 10 years, were key players for the Kohawks.

Schaefer said the reason the Kohawks have been so successful this year is the team's approach on the court.

Mount Mercy men's soccer: Welcome to the United Nations

The chatter among the players on the Mount Mercy men’s soccer team is like listening to a session of the United Nations.

All speak English, but most with decided accents.

To say the team is a global melting pot is a vast understatement.

Of the 34 men on the squad, 26 hail from a foreign country. They represent 18 different nations from all of the seven continents save Antarctica.

Seven of them are from Iowa, one from Illinois. There are more who call Germany home (five) than those from Cedar Rapids (four).

“Our motto is one team, one world,” says Coach Amir Hadzic, himself a native of Bosnia who escaped his war-torn homeland in 1994 and took over Mount Mercy’s soccer program a year later. “You know it really is a small world.”

Kelsey Drake wins Metro Spotlight Award

Linn-Mar sophomore Kelsey Drake is the winner of the Metro Spotlight Award for high school girls this week, the Metro Sports Report announced Sunday.

Drake is one of the top young swimmers in the state and she began the 2014 season with four victories Tuesday when Linn-Mar defeated Newton in a dual meet. She won the 200 IM and 100 butterfly and swam on the victorious 200 medley relay and 200 freestyle relay.

Drake transferred from Cedar Rapids Jefferson to Linn-Mar this year. She was the silver medalist in two events at the 2013 state meet for the J-Hawks, placing second in the 200 IM and second in the 100 butterfly.

 

Daniel Murphy wins Metro Spotlight Award

Linn-Mar senior Daniel Murphy is the winner of the Metro Spotlight Award for high school boys this week, the Metro Sports Report announced Sunday.

Murphy is one of the top distance runners in the state. He began the 2014 cross country season in style Saturday by winning the Prairie Invitational in 15 minutes, 26 seconds for an 11-second victory over the 5K course.

Murphy led Linn-Mar to the team championship at the Prairie meet.

Murphy placed third in the 3200 meter run at the Class 4A state track meet last May in 9:12.46. He also finished 10th in the 1600 meter run in 4:21.93.
