Metro Sports Report

Sellers joining Kennedy girls basketball

M'Caela "Lela" Sellers, a talented 5-foot-11 guard from Minnesota, is moving to Cedar Rapids with her family and will join the Kennedy girls basketball team this season, according to the director of her AAU program and other sources.

Sellers will be a junior at Kennedy this year.

"She's very athletic. Great scoring ability," said Bill Larson, the director of the North Tartan AAU basketball program. "She's getting strong Division I looks."

Larson described Sellers as an off-guard who can handle the ball, shoot, slash to the basket and play strong defense.

Kuhn, Cannoy help Indians sweep Maquoketa


Marion High School pitcher David Kuhn had an ERA that was higher than his GPA last year, so he dedicated himself to baseball this winter, took lessons from a college coach and matured on the mound this season.

The results have been dramatic.

Kuhn has tossed two no-hitters this season, and although he was not in peak form Wednesday night he pitched a complete game as Marion clipped Maquoketa, 7-5, in the nightcap of a Wamac Conference twinbill at Marion.

Quinn Cannoy pitched a strong game in a 2-1 victory in the opener as Marion swept the doubleheader, raising its records to 14-10 overall and 11-7 in league contests.

Kuhn, a junior, has a 5-1 record and 2.21 ERA this season. That compares favorably to last year's numbers, when he was 1-4 with a 6.15 ERA.

Burdi shows his form, but Kernels fall

APPLETON, Wis. - Nick Burdi can breathe a little easier now after making his second appearance for the Cedar Rapids Kernels Thursday night.

Burdi pitched a scoreless inning in relief for the Kernels and struck out three batters, a far cry from his first appearance last week for Cedar Rapids when he walked four straight batters and helped blow a 4-0 lead.

Wisconsin defeated the Kernels, 5-3, Thursday despite the encouraging work by Burdi, a second-round draft pick this year who got a $1.2 million bonus from the Minnesota Twins.

Kernels starter Ryan Eades (5-8) gave up five runs in five innings and the Kernels were not able to recover.

Kernels pitchers whiff 14 in win

APPLETON, Wis. - The Cedar Rapids Kernels got good pitching and good hitting in the same game Wednesday night and clipped Wisconsin, 6-1, in a Midwest League game before 3,519 fans at Fox Cities Stadium.

Cedar Rapids pitchers Lewis Thorpe, Chris Mazza, Alex Muren and Hudson Boyd combined to strike out 14 batters. Thorpe started and went 4.2 innings, fanning eight batters and allowing one unearned run.

Mazza (1-2) pitched next for the Kernels and got the victory.

Zack Granite went 3-for-5 in the leadoff spot for Cedar Rapids and scored two runs. Alex Swim went 2-for-4 and drove in three runs. Bryan Haar also had two hits.

Sommer shines as Lions sweep Saints

Linn-Mar senior Katie Sommer is a fierce competitor who hates to sit idly by, even when she's nursing a head injury and needs to rest for a few days.

Sommer missed four games in the Linn-Mar tournament this past weekend after being hit in the head by an errant throw last Thursday, but she returned with a vengeance Tuesday and helped the Lions sweep a twinbill from Xavier, 5-4 and 12-8.

Sommer went 4-for-6 in the doubleheader with two walks, three stolen bases, four runs scored and two sensational plays at shortstop at the Linn-Mar field.

"I just wanted to come back strong," she said. "I just wanted to do it for my team. We got the job done."

Maddy Ryan (18-11) picked up the victories in both games for Linn-Mar. She tossed a complete game in the opener, then pitched 3.2 innings in relief in the nightcap as the Lions raised their records to 22-13 overall and 15-7 in the Mississippi Valley Conference.
