Metro Sports Report

Are Mustangs ready for some football?

Some very smart people at Mount Mercy University could have some very big decisions to make this winter about the future of their athletic department.

The Mustangs are searching for a new league with the impending demise of the Midwest Collegiate Conference and there is no sure path to follow from here, with no blueprint and no obvious answers.

Mount Mercy has applied to the Heart of America Conference, which requires football, and the Mustangs also are talking to the North Star Conference, which does not require football.

Scot Reisinger, the athletic director at Mount Mercy, won't tip his hand either way. Conversations with both schools are ongoing, but it appears there could be a resolution this winter or spring.

What if the Heart of America extends an invitation to Mount Mercy and the North Star does not? And what if the Heart of America does not change its bylaws and insists the Mustangs will have to have a football team in the near future?

What then?

If the Heart of America is Mount Mercy's only chance to join a midwest league, will the Mustangs begin a football program or would they decide to operate as an NAIA independent for awhile?

Bohannon takes lead in Metro scoring

Linn-Mar junior Jordan Bohannon has moved to the top of the Metro scoring derby after a hot week of 3-point shooting.

Bohannon drilled five 3-pointers in a victory over Kennedy and hit a half-dozen triples in a victory over Cedar Falls last week. Those performances moved the sharpshooter to the top of Metro scoring with a 17.3 average and also lifted him into the Metro lead with 28 3-pointers in eight games.

Craig Engle of Marion is second in Metro scoring at 17.1 points and Nic Uhlir of Linn-Mar is third at 16.0.

Keegan Moore of Washington leads Metro boys in rebounding with 9.5 per game. Brendon Manning of Kennedy and Adam McDermott of Xavier are tied for second with 7.1 caroms per game.

Kamryn Finley wins Metro Spotlight Award

Linn-Mar freshman Kamryn Finley is the winner of the Metro Spotlight Award for high school girls this week, the Metro Sports Report announced Sunday.

Finley helped the Linn-Mar girls basketball team win all three of its games last week with victories over Kennedy (62-49), Cedar Falls (54-51) and Marion (52-48). She averaged 14.3 points and 3.7 rebounds in those contests as the fifth-ranked Lions raised their record to 9-1.

Finley scored 19 points in a sharp overall performance against Kennedy. She hit four 3-pointers, went 7-for-8 from the field, grabbed five rebounds, came up with four steals and had an assist.

Wempen storms back for Linn-Mar matmen

Linn-Mar senior Matt Wempen knows the clock is ticking on his high school wrestling career.

He won a state title as a freshman in 2012, but he suffered a tough 3-2 loss in the finals in 2013 and had to settle for fifth place last year when he wrestled at the state meet with a broken thumb.

He broke his left thumb again in practice this season and had to sit - impatiently - and watch the first six weeks of the season before returning with a flourish at the 49th Annual Linn-Mar Invitational Saturday.

Wempen collected four quick pins at 145 pounds in 3:15, 1:25, 1:12 and 28 seconds. He also received a forfeit, giving him a 5-0 record after just 6 minutes, 20 seconds of wrestling.
