Kirkwood women crush Oakton, 111-19

Caitlin Sudduth led six players into double figures Friday night with 18 points as the Kirkwood women's basketball team crushed Oakton, 111-19, in the first round of the Kirkwood Classic at Johnston Hall.

Cedar Valley girls aiming higher

Ron Slagle has been coaching many of the girls in the Cedar Valley Christian basketball program since they were in the fourth grade, either on the AAU circuit or at the school itself.

He's experienced all the growing pains along the way, but now thinks the Huskies are ready to a big step forward and compete for a Tri-Rivers Conference title in the next few years.

"We're shooting to be the Tri-Rivers Conference East champion within the next three years," Slagle said Thursday, "and I think it's very attainable on that side of the conference.

"The girls are tied of losing. They want to be considered a valid opponent for anybody and that's the mindset going forward. We want to make sure Cedar Valley gets put on the map before the next three years are over."

The Huskies nearly made it last year when they began the season with a 7-3 record, but superstar Shelby Hembera got hurt and missed the rest of the year. The team finished with an 8-14 record, going 1-11 without her.


Kennedy-Dowling title game postponed to Monday

The Iowa High School Athletic Association has decided to postpone all of Friday's championship football games in Cedar Falls until Monday, Nov. 23.

The decision was made based upon the National Weather Service forecast and the winter storm warning that has been issued for Friday. Heavy snow has been predicted for the area.

Kennedy was scheduled to play Dowling in the Class 4A finals at 7:06 p.m. Friday at the UNI-Dome. The game is now scheduled for 7:06 p.m. Monday in the Dome.

All of Monday's championship games will follow the same time schedule as originally planned. Iowa City Regina will play Western Christian at 11:06 a.m. Monday for the Class 1A title and Spirit Lake will meet Mount Vernon for the Class 2A title at 2:06 p.m.

The welfare of teams traveling home on Friday in conjunction with the safety of fans traveling contributed to the decision to postpone the games, the IHSAA announced.

Tickets sold for Friday's games will be honored Monday.
