Cougars eye state title in final shot

The old gang of Kennedy golfers are all seniors now, heading down their final fairway together as high school athletes.

There are six of them - Davis Sutton, Conner Koberg, Cole Murdock, Tanner Stewart, Ross Grekoff and Seth Nutt - and they've accomplished some impressive things during their prep careers with major championships, conference titles and a pair of second-place showings at the state tournament the last two years.

The Cougars added another Mississippi Valley Conference title to their resume Monday, winning the Valley Division crown by a whopping 52 shots in the final round of the 54-hole event at Ellis Golf Course.

Sutton won the overall Valley championship with a 54-hole score of 217 with rounds of 65, 77 and 75 on three different courses. Koberg took medalist honors Monday with an even-par 72 and placed second overall at 225. Murdock placed third at 227, giving Kennedy a 1-2-3 sweep of the top honors.


Warriors claim 1st title in 20 years

WATERLOO - The Cedar Rapids Washington boys golf team won its first conference title since 1994 Monday behind another impressive performance by Frank Lindwall.

Lindwall fired a 6-under-par 66 as the Warriors edged Xavier, 864-867, for the Mississippi Division title in the Mississippi Valley Conference at the Irv Warren course in Waterloo.

Lindwall ran away with medalist honors in the 54-hole tournament with scores of 69, 64 and 66 at three different courses on three different days. He won the championship by 13 strokes over Sam Martin of Xavier.

Jake Patterson of Washington finished third in the overall standings, Will Jackson finished sixth and Jabe Gonder tied for ninth, giving the Warriors four golfers in the top 10.


DeBacker killed in automobile accident

Danny DeBacker, a member of the Mount Mercy University men's basketball and track teams, was critically injured in an automobile accident early Sunday morning in Davenport and died at University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics in Iowa City Sunday afternoon.

DeBacker, 22, was a senior from Orion, Ill. He transferred to Mount Mercy last year from Black Hawk Community College.

Andrew Scott Adams, 21, from Orion, Ill., also was killed in the crash, according to the Quad City Times.

Kai Robert Miller, 23, from Davenport, was arrested at 6:34 a.m. Sunday and charged with Homicide by Vehicle-OWI (Operating While Intoxicated), according to the Scott County sheriff's department.


Tavian Patrick wins Metro Spotlight Award

Tavian Patrick of Cedar Rapids Washington is the winner of the Metro Spotlight Award for high school boys this week, the Metro Sports Report announced Sunday.

Patrick rushed for 212 yards and a 73-yard touchdown Friday night as the top-ranked Warriors defeated Muscatine, 42-21, in their Class 4A district opener at Kingston Stadium.

Patrick, a 5-foot-8 junior, has carried the ball 48 times for 589 yards and three touchdowns. He also has scored on a punt return.

Patrick ranks fifth in Class 4A with his 589 yards. He is averaging an eye-popping 12.3 yards per carry and has runs this season of 76, 73 and 70 yards. He has three 100-yard games this year with 212 against Muscatine, 139 against Jefferson and 123 against Iowa City West.


Wash swimmers win Metro Spotlight Award

Kaitlyn Nemickas, Caitlin Sievers, Lauren Havertape and Logan Eckhardt of the Washington swimming team are the Metro Spotlight winners for high school girls this week, the Metro Sports Report announced Sunday.

The four Warriors set a meet record in the 200 medley relay Saturday to help Washington win the team championship at the Des Moines Lincoln Invitational by 120 points. The Warriors were timed in 1 minute, 56.8 seconds, just a shade behind their season-best time of 1:55.72 that ranks 12th in the state.

Nemickas and Havertape were triple-winners in Des Moines. Nemickas won the 100 backstroke and swam on the triumphant 200 freestyle relay. Havertape claimed the 100 butterfly and swam on the 200 freestyle relay.
