Dahm signs 17 new players for Mount Mercy

Jack Dahm plans to keep building the Mount Mercy baseball program with as many players from Iowa as he possibly can.

True to his plan, 13 of his 17 new guys this year are Iowans who are joining Dahm for his second season with the Mustangs in 2016.

Eleven of his new players are transfers, including four from Ellsworth Community College, three from Kirkwood, two from DMACC, one from Iowa Lakes and one from Northern Iowa.


Warriors cruise at Airport National

The Washington Warriors found Airport National to their liking Thursday and captured the title at a five-team golf tournament.

Alex Slattery claimed medalist honors for Washington with a 2-under-par 30 as the Warriors finished with 127 strokes. Washington teammates Frank Lindwall and Jabe Gonder shared second place at 1-under 31.

Cameron Stump of Kennedy and Griffen Clark of Prairie tied for fourth at even-par 32.

The Warriors topped Prairie by nine shots in the team standings.


Prairie jumps to 5th in volleyball

The Cedar Rapids Prairie volleyball team jumped seven spots to No. 5 in the new Class 5A rankings Thursday by the IGHSAU.

The Hawks are now the highest-ranked Metro team in Class 5A after getting off to a 4-0 start. Kennedy is ranked No. 7 in Class 5A and Linn-Mar is ranked No. 8.

The Marion Indians, who open their season Thursday night against Vinton-Shellsburg, stayed in the No. 2 spot in Class 4A.

Iowa City High is ranked No. 1 in Class 5A and West Delaware is No. 1 in Class 4A.


Kernels fall to Peoria in 9th

PEORIA, Ill. - Nick Thompson's walk-off RBI single in the bottom of the ninth inning gave Peoria a 5-4 victory over the Kernels on Tuesday night at Dozer Park in the rubber game of their series.

The Chiefs scored two runs in the eighth inning to tie the game after the Kernels had worked for a 4-2 edge.

Harrison Bader singled to right field with two outs in the ninth inning for Peoria. He advanced to second on Brian O'Keefe's base on balls. Thompson's liner to left scored Bader for the game-winning run. It was Thompson's third hit of the game.

Zack Tillery (5-5) took the loss, allowing one run on two hits in two-thirds of an inning.

The Kernels pushed a run across in the first inning. Sean Miller began the game with a double into right-center and scored on a one-out single to left by T.J. White.


General McArthur enlists with Kirkwood baseball

The Kirkwood baseball team could have a new commander on the field next season.

His named is General McArthur, a shortstop from Crete-Monee High School in Illinois who has joined the Eagles as a freshman for the 2016 campaign. General McArthur is his legal given name and not a nickname based on the famous World War II commander.
