Metro Sports Report

Jennings signs 19 for Mount Mercy women

Some college basketball coaches grow tired of recruiting and think it's simply a necessary evil, but Mount Mercy Coach Aaron Jennings enjoys hitting the road and finding new players.

That's good, because Mount Mercy is adding a junior varsity program for the 2015-16 season and Jennings needed to sign a big class to have enough players for the varsity and JV squads.

He's signed 19 new players for this season, including six junior college transfers and 13 high school seniors.

"Recruiting is kind of exciting," he said this week. "It's just like a game. It's challenging, and just like you have competition in a game, you have competition in recruiting.

"You're selling your program and yourself and your school to the kids, and you're competing with all the other excellent programs in the area and in the state and sometimes out of state."

No.2 J-Hawks enjoy 2-game lead

The Cedar Rapids Jefferson baseball club opened a two-game lead in the Valley Division standings Friday by sweeping a Mississippi Valley Conference doubleheader from Waterloo East, 14-0 and 12-2, at the Jefferson field.

Both games lasted only five innings due to the 10-run mercy rule.

The second-ranked J-Hawks raised their record in the Valley Division to 16-4, good for a two-game lead over Iowa City West (14-6) in the chase for the division title with six MVC games left for both teams. Kennedy (11-5) is three games behind Jefferson with 10 to play, including a pair against the J-Hawks.

Jared Eivins went 3-for-4 with two doubles and four RBIs for Jefferson in the first game. Lucas Larson was 3-for-3. Brayden Frazier scored three runs. Spencer VanScoyoc and Jacob Beaton scored twice. Cam Frazier had two RBIs.
